Bra of my life
on October 3, 2012
I have an interesting experience with this bra. By interesting, I mean that I owned the 36DD when I was heavier, then I bought a 36D when my breasts became smaller from weight loss.
I love this bra. As a 36/38DD-er, it was the first time I found a bra that was supportive, comfortable, and minimizing all at once. You could see the seam of the edge of the bra through my shirt sometimes, but it never bothered me. The straps are not adjustable, but they're at just the right length. I don't have to worry about those adjusters digging into my skin. Originally intended as a sports bra, this became my everyday bra. My breasts looked great in this bra - perky and round. The more I wore this bra, the softer it would get. It took a long time for these bras to finally stretch out. Even at a cup size smaller, I still keep my soft, old bras around for wear around the house.
Then I lost weight and my breasts became smaller. Not wanting to fix was wasn't broken, I went ahead and bought this bra in 36D. Supportive, comfortable, and minimizing, just like last time. Except for... pointy cups? Yes, it's true. My perfectly round breasts were no longer perfectly round, but pointy! Not pointy like bras from the 1940s, but just enough to put me off. I was sad, my trusted wonderful bra that I loved was making me pointy. But I wouldn't give up. I wore that bra anyway! After about a week, and much to my content, the cup of the bra conformed to the shape of my breasts. No more pointy-ness, just lovely roundness.
The moral of the story - if you bought this bra in a D cup or smaller and experienced the pointy effect, don't give up. Keep wearing it and it will conform it's shape to you. It will become a great bra, but you must let it.
