"Bra"nanza!

We all have them and they all need our support. You've got it, I'm talking about our beloved boobies! That's why finding the perfect bra is essential to making them look their absolute best!

Because I am a member of the, "Itty Bitty..." - you know the rest, I opt to wear bras with a tad of padding. In fact, I used to be a huge fan of the gel-padded bras until I had a messy mishap that I'll spare the details about. Since then, I now stick to regularly padded, but liquid-free bras!

From sexy lace underwires to super supportive sports bras, there's one that's right for you. Plus there are tons of bras out there that can work with just about any outfit. The key is to make sure that you're getting the right size. Head to your local lingerie store or a nearby Victoria's Secret to get professionally fitted - trust me, it will make a huge difference.

In the meantime check out some of these!

BGG, I got new boobs in December and I have been on the hunt for the perfect bra ever since. What I've learned is paying more doesn't guarantee a perfect fit. I was tossing my dollars to VS until I ventured out and tried some other less expensive ones. My absolute favorite is by DKNY and I got it at Macy's...of course! As for being fitted, every bra is different, you just gotta go in and try them on!

Cute or comfortable...that is the question and the answer is always CUTE! I simply love a cute bra and fortunately for me, there are tons of them out there. The key is to watch for sales and them grab em in every color. The other key is to wash them on delicate and no matter what don't ever put the cheap ones in the dryer! That Hanky Panky one is to die for!

I can't seem to find the right fit and I've been fitted. I'm starting to wonder if my girls are ill formed! They always seem to pucker in one place or another. Perhaps I need to spend a few more bucks on a really good one. I'm definitely going to try the Vera Wang one! Thanks, BGG! Maybe there's hope after all!

Very cute! I happened to be blessed with a lil more than I can handle so I always by my bras from victoria secrets. It can be expensive but well worth it. They last a long time and have a good variety. It's like the perfect place to get the best fitting bra and a cute one.

Ananda said...

thanks bgg. i am planning to do my bra shopping on memorial day weekend. this gets me and my mango sweet twins ready.

Sanura said...

Thanks for keeping us itty bitties in the loop. I often feel left out of the bra conversations, because bras are never on my list of priorities. However, I do need a few replacements. I agree with Antithesis, the expensive ones don't last. My favorite brand is The Gap, but I'll explore the other brands you mentioned.

Fun topic. I see we're in the same committee. I'm actually a board member. LOL!

Anywho, I don't typically wear anything other than VS, but their strapless bras are wack-arnold's so I shop pretty much anywhere for strapless bras.

I typically just wait for the semi-annual sale unless I have an event coming up and realize I don't have the proper under armor for it.

Another thing I wanted to share with the masses are breast petals from Fashion Forms. They are the only company that makes a "toffee" color as opposed to the "nude"=white or extremely light-skinned. They get the job done when I have low front and back dresses, but am not trying to be nippley. :)

i like the sexy lace.

I too am a member of the IBTC! My favorite bras are from Tarjhay. They fit well, have great colors and styles, last for a long time, and don't break the bank. I just cannot justify paying big bucks to keep my not-so-big girls housed.

Consumer Reports agreed:

I love that Hanky Panky bralet. So cute! I'm also a member of the "committee".

Eb the Celeb said...

that hanky pank one was cute... I am truly a victoria secret very sexy type of girl though... love them bras... especially with infinity edge that makes my itty bitties look like I have some cleavage...and the plunge bras are good for that too

There seems to be nothing in VS that I do not love. As soon as I go in there I spend more money than I plan to. I think the next time I go I will get a fitting because I always seem to buy all my bras too small. For whatever reason, I haven't changed my bra size since high school (even though what goess in it has changed). Thanks for such a good post.

I don't know how I forgot to include my absolute favorite bra, by Bali! It's so comfortable!

I can never find a strapless bra that i'm not constantly tugging at to stay up,that padded bandeau bra looks like it'll stay in place and won't completely flatten my already small u know whats. Can't wait to try it out! Thanks BGG

slacker chic said...

That last one from VS is perfect! I have always been looking for one i could wear with a halter top but can never seem to find one around. Great finds!

I'm with you there Afrodite.

I discovered Frederick's Smooth Sensation bra almost a decade ago and it's all I've ever worn ever since.
