Perfect, for all occasions
on August 23, 2010
I have had bad luck with bras all of my life, so buying one online was really a stretch for me. Bras always made my breasts feel way too heavy, made me feel hot (sometimes sweaty) and made huge indentations in my shoulders (even the ones with the extra padding to prevent that). I couldn't wait to get out of my bra when I got home. I figured I was just cursed. I was finally fed up with all of the strap and bra tugging and did some online research. I found this bra with good reviews but not convinced, I visited the Playtex website and I'm so glad I did. I found that [...] has a great site for measuring yourself to see if you're wearing the right bra. It even addresses what specific problems you have and how to fix it (i.e. bra straps slide down a lot-- your size is wrong, or "mushroom" bumps at the top of your bra, the straps may be too tight). I found that apparently the size I always thought I wore was wrong. I had measured myself before to find the right fit, but it was apparently not a good measure because I have never had a bra fit the way I wanted it to or thought it should. The size I was given on [...] was very different from the size I've been wearing. I was hesitant to order a different size, but finally decided to go ahead because the ones I had clearly were not working. I chose to buy Playtex because that was the sizing site I used. This particular bra had good reviews for people with ample breasts. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! For the first time ever, I don't find myself tugging at the back to pull the bra down or constantly trying to find lost straps from where they fell into my sleeve. This bra is comfortable, breathable, and does the job. And, it looks good under a variety of different types of shirts. It's smooth, no lines, and looks natural, not pointy. It's not restrictive. It was listed as an "active lifestyle" bra so I sort of thought it would be like a sports bra, but I am happy to see it's not. I wear it with work outfits and at home in leisurely clothes and it's equally flattering and fitting for both. And, shocker of all shockers, I don't even remember to yank it off as soon as I get home because it's so comfortable I forget I'm wearing it. :) I'm going to order more.
