965 Dream Lace Tisha Le Mystere bra
on March 19, 2011
I am a fit specialist and very familiar with this bra.
The design and fabrication of this bra is as close to perfect as I have found in this type style. Definitely designed for lift and support. However, with the lace trim, gives a beautiful, feminine look to a fuller fit bra. Which sometimes are not so pretty.
Here's what I really like about this bra, it is designed to look like a cami. So if you lean over and lace happens to show, looks like you are wearing a cami. You don't have to buy cami and a bra,,, it's both. This comes in lots of colors,, so it's a real winner.
This fits true to size. It is not a cheap bra,,, you can tell that by just looking at this. Every thing about the design of this bra is for full lift and support. Plus this bra will last. If you are full fit,,, please do not expect a $40 bra to lift and support correctly all day long,,, for a year. Because it will not happen. At that price,,, they just cannot put in enough design features to offer all day full support over time. For a couple of months yes,,, but then,,, the support starts to go and then the bust is at the elbow again. The best way to think about bras, is to compare them to shoes. Every style fits different,,,try them on (be fitted by specialist) the better quality the more design features that can be added for comfort, fit and support. For bras, firm under wire and stays for lift/support with additional layers of cushioning for added comfort, more expensive fabric for support and durability, strong power net band for full support all day long. Just a few design elements that cheaper bras just don't have.
Here's the real secret to making your bras last. If you are full fit, C/D cup need four well fitting supportive bras. If you are fuller DD - DDDDD, get at least 6 bras. Here is why this is so important, the larger the bust the more pressure on the fabric. Plus if you only have two bras that you wear,,, then body oils break down fibers in the fabric and support is lost. However, women don't realize this and keeping wearing for a year,,, with the bust hanging down to the elbow and breast tissue stretching out.
Bust should be at the natural bust line,,, midpoint between shoulders and elbow. How to tell this,,, look at your profile in a mirror. It's easier to see in a side view. If the bust is closer to the elbow,,, that bra is not fitting correctly or giving support. Plus all the weight of the bust is on your shoulders and back.
I want to be clear hear on correct bra terminology,,, this is NOT a padded bra. It's a 1/4" fiberfill cup,,, which is called a CONTOUR cup. A padded bra is very thick, to make you look bigger.
A contour cup has structure, to give you lift and support and keep the bust at the natural bust line. Not to make you look larger,,, it's to get the bust up away from the belly and allow your clothing to fit correctly.
