Ok, but the Non-Shaping Version is Much More Comfortable
on January 4, 2014
I bought this bra because I'm a big fan of the Bali Women's Comfort Revolution Wirefree Bra (the NON-shaping version of the bra, which is very similar, just without the padding). The regular wirefree bra is incredibly comfortable, but it gives only a small amount of support, so I thought the shaping version might be just as comfortable while offering more support.
However, I was disappointed when I tried on this shaping bra. According to the size chart on the tag, I had ordered the correct size, but the "shaped" area on each side of the bra wasn't big enough to cover my breasts. Instead of lifting and supporting each breast, the bra gave me the dreaded "uni-boob" look you get with many sports bras.
I tried to give the bra the benefit of the doubt, so I washed and air-dried it, and then I wore it around the house for a full weekend. Sadly, the appearance never improved, and I also found it uncomfortable after a few hours of wearing. This bra may work well for smaller-chested women, but I don't think it was designed with larger-chested women in mind.
