I am constantly on the look-out for a bra that is everything I want it to be. For some reason it's been a much harder search than I ever fathomed. I want a bra to be comfortable with underwires. I want my boobs to look good with and without clothes. I want it to fit well. And I don't want to spend an arm and a leg on it. I know, that's a lot to ask of one bra, but I had faith that one day I'd find it.
I've tried a lot of bras that people say are great and have found them lacking. I tried the bras that had 1/2 cup sizing, hoping for a better fit, but I haven't loved them. I've tried non-underwire bras, hoping they'd be more comfortable, but didn't feel like I got enough support. I tried the Spanx bra, which they advertise as "so comfortable you'll forget you have it on!" I have it on right now, and I actually don't like it at all. The underwires dig into me both on the outer edges of my boobs and between my boobs. The all-hoisery band that is supposed to "banish back fat" by not being too tight tends to bunch up instead of laying flat. And the cups are a bit stiff and they don't form well to my boobs - they're a bit pointy for my taste. And the cups are incredibly covering - any low cut tops are out with this bra because the bra would show.
But I finally found the best bra in the world! The Incredible Bra from Victoria's Secret. Kristen and Stacy extolled the virtues of this bra this summer and I didn't believe them. They said it was so comfortable and it made your boobs look great. But both of them have pretty good boobs to begin with, so I wasn't sure that was completely accurate marketing. But I was getting sick of constantly buying bras and then hating them and wanting to take them off by mid-day. So I finally bought one. It's the best $45 I've ever spent on a bra. I intend to buy more of them.
|Honestly I wanted to use a pic of the bra without a model in it, |
but of course I couldn't find one.
- cushioned underwire won't dig, bind, or pinch
- wide band slims and smooths under all your tops
- self-adjusting straps fit perfectly every time
- flat back closure for a seamless look
- lightly lined
It comes in the regular variety of fits - demi, front close, push-up, strapless.
All of those things are true. It's really amazing. The first day I wore it, I wore it all day without having to adjust it what-so-ever. And it was so comfortable that I didn't feel the need to take it off immediately upon arriving home after work. In fact, when I went to get ready to go to bed, I was surprised that I still had it on! Another thing I love about it is that it doesn't cover too much. I can wear a slightly low-cut top and not be concerned that my bra might show. The demi has enough up-lift without being too sexy. The cups are comfortable and move enough to fit my boobs well. There's enough lining so that there's no nip show through when it's cold. I think it makes my boobs look good with and without clothes. And apparently, the story of this bra goes - a man designed it and had his wife try it out. She exclaimed that it was Incredible! Hence, it's name.
