In Praise of a Well Fitting Bra
If there is one thing that can make or break how this little bee feels during the day, it’s how her bra fits. I have what seems to be an odd size, 34 D/DD, and it is difficult to find bras that fit. My latest goal in bra-seeking has been trying to find one that does not make my bust look any bigger. Come on now, D is large enough, I do not need extra padding that makes them enormous. At least not in my everyday work clothes, thank you very much!
Can I tell you how happy I have been this past week wearing the new Vanity Fair ® Modern Coverage Collection all over town? Even through the awful heat, these fabrics still felt comfortable.
The new line by Vanity Fair®, Modern Coverage, features less cup coverage than the brand’s traditional Full Coverage bras. And this is fantastic! With all three of the bras I tried, Look Lifted Underwire Bra, Advanced Support Underwire Bra, and Front Close Underwire Bra, I did not get the dreaded DOUBLE BOOB or a gaping space between the top of the bra and my boobs. Can we get a round of applause, please?
I have spent HOURS in fitting rooms trying to find bras that fit me, and I have to say that these new Vanity Fair® Modern Coverage bras are fabulous and functional. The Look Lifted Underwire Bra even has pretty lace on the band, making it just as nice to look at as it is for me to wear. And the Front Close Underwire Bra even has little rhinestones on the front!
Do I have a favorite of the three new bras? I have to say, I really liked the Front Close Underwire Bra. I have a VERY ACTIVE job where I can be moving, bending and reaching all day long. The straps and cups did not move around on me at all. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to work and having to pull your bra back to where it belongs while being discrete around clients. Not professional at all.
And in case you were wondering, yes, Vanity Fair® does have pretty panties that go well with each of the bras. The Illumination® String Bikini gives great coverage but is still very pretty. There are all sorts of colors and prints for the Illumination® String Bikini. Because if your dress flies up in the wind, you want to be covered, but you still want to be sexy, right?
I am very happy now that I have found bras that fit me and look pretty underneath my clothes. My pin-up girl powers are back where they belong. Up and lifted!
Oh, would YOU like a chance to try these wonderful bras? I am offering a $100 gift card to one of my wonderful little bees!
