Comfort and Cleavage
on December 29, 2011
Ever notice how a lot of bras that tout cleavage-inducing construction just aren't all that comfortable? Luckily that is not the case with this bra. The underwire is the most comfortable of any underwire bra I have owned. I almost forget it HAS underwiring. Straps are comfortable, don't dig in nor poke through if you wear a more sheer, form-fitted top or t-shirt. Though advertised as adding a bra size (without going the surgical route), I would say its construction--the gel padding is at the bottom of the cups and wraps upward on the sides a little--more firms the breasts and enhances cleavage to give a more natural-looking uplift to what the good Lord gave you and gravity fights to take away, lol. Unlike a lot of cup size-inducing Victoria' Secret bras, which, imo, often make women look freakish, unnatural, this bra's padding, as I said, does more to reverse the inevitable effects of aging/gravity. I am a natural 38C and that is the size I bought. And I still look like myself, but more rounded (ahhh, those wonder years of your 20s), firmer, and maybe a half cup-size bigger. Sort of the kind of uplift you would get working with weights to build up your chest muscles with biceps and triceps curls and pushups. The clasp is comfortable--no digging into your back and irritating the skin as so many bras do. I bought the nude color with the inside leopard spots(?) style, and the 'spots' do not show through wearing light-colored tops. Of course that may not be the case underneath sheer, white or off-white summer fabrics. But it works fine for the heavier fabrics of fall and winter, even early spring.
So all in all, a stylish, well-fitting, comfortable bra with straps and clasp and underwires that don't dig into the skin, and gel-padded in a manner that in smaller-busted women may make your breasts look noticeably bigger but that in C-cup women, gives a rounding and uplift that is more natural looking but gives the illusion of being a half-size or so bigger than you are. A purchase well worth the surprisingly, imo, low price.
