Why I recommend this bra
Having a large bust may have you shy away from a push-up bra. Indeed, this category of bras usually suits the needs of girls who aren’t so blessed in the bust area (and yes, this should make you feel special). However, there’s a push-up bra which works for plus-size wearers. Its sole purpose is to shape the cleavage nicely, especially if you’re wearing a low-cut outfit, such as a plunging neckline.
This push-up bra offers moderate coverage, which is just enough to keep everything tucked in. Therefore, the security factor is covered. On the other hand, it has a clean-finished edge, which means that it won’t “block” the cleavage, or cut into your boobs.
If a bra must have padding, I’ll endure it only if it’ll enhance the appearance of the cleavage. This is exactly the function of the padding in this Wacoal push-up bra. It doesn’t make the cleavage look to excessive, or tacky. Rather, it creates the feminine, sexy look we’re all here for, especially for special events when we want to steal the show.
All about the bra
You can just feel the Wacoal quality and perfectionism in this push-up bra. Meant to increase the cleavage in a glamorous, classy manner, it provides a slight lifting effect. The underwire creates the sense of security we’re all looking for, especially in bras for special events.
Besides the underwire, there are more elements which keep the girls posted, and perky-looking. This push-up bra has a dose of padding, which is gradually placed along the lines of the bra. A common flaw in a push-up bra is that the padding is concentrated in one area only. This creates discomfort and an odd shape which is something we’re looking to avoid, especially having large breasts.
This push-up bra has fully adjustable straps which give you endless possibilities when it comes to the fit of the bra. You can make it looser, tighter, wider, or closer together, all depending on your personal preference. Not only that, but the straps are also convertible, so you can switch between criss-cross, halter, and conventional style, all with the same bra.
Although its purpose is to bring some drama to the look, its seamless exterior will blend in underneath any top, if you decide to wear it as a regular bra, without flaunting the cleavage.
How does the bra fit?
One of the brides I’ve recently worked with chose this push-up bra for her big day. I’ve felt a lot of responsibility helping her select the right bra for the most important day of her life, since it was only natural for her to shine that day. I couldn’t help but call her after the wedding to hear all about the ceremony.
Of course, I was curious to see if the bride was satisfied with her push-up bra, since she was really anxious about the fit. She told me that she didn’t have to think about adjusting it, not even for a second. She spent her special day dancing and enjoying herself, while looking her absolute best.
Although we’re talking about a push-up bra, leave all the generalizations behind. This is not a regular push-up bra which will squeeze the girls closely together and make you feel as if you were suffocating. It embraces your natural curves, enhancing it in a subtle manner.
One of my clients felt that the bra was a little bit too tight when she first started wearing it. This can be a common issue, especially with a push-up bra. However, if you give it some time, it’ll definitely stretch out enough, and you’ll be able to comfortably wear it. Other than the initial tightness, it is true to size.
Is the bra comfortable?
The soft, gradually positioned padding will feels soft as silk on your skin. It is important to carefully choose the material of the bra, since the bust area is extremely sensitive, and prone to different kinds of irritations and severe reactions. So far, I didn’t have any clients reporting any redness or discomfort related to the fabric of this push-up bra.
Since the band isn’t too wide or too narrow, it gives you just enough support. Some of my clients find that the wide bands tend to bother them during the day. The band width of this push-up bra is a great balance which will not feel overwhelming.
My 34DD client had to wear it on the last notch at first, since it was feeling a little bit too tight. She knew the size was correct, so she followed my instructions and gave it some time. After a couple of uses, the bra stretched, and she was able to adjust it appropriately. This is the only barrier you may come across if you purchase this push-up bra, but keep in mind that it is only temporary, and the experience that follows is definitely worth it.
How does the bra look?
The bra can be found in two regular color choices: nude, and black. Both alternatives are extremely sexy, and versatile. You can them with different outfits, including low-cut items, since the bra compliments low-cuts, including sexy plunging necklines.
The straps are pretty thin, which allows you to wear them with flowy summer dresses and tops. Also, they’re convertible and extremely adjustable.
The demi-cups are seamlessly designed, which means that their contour won’t show even on a silk dress.
Where to wear this bra
A push-up bra automatically brings out the notion of special events, especially parties, and occasions when you want to sweep people off their feet. I couldn’t agree more, since this push-up bra can help you achieve that wow effect which will turn heads the moment you enter the room. It is comfortable, sexy, and extremely flattering, especially for large-chested girls. This push-up bra is a perfect choice for long, wild nights you’ll remember for a long time.
On the other hand, it won’t fail you on a daily basis, either. Since it has no visible texture, it won’t show through your clothes, and it’ll blend seamlessly with your everyday tees. You can easily transform from a glamorous chic to a busy girl running errands, wearing the same exact bra, and no one will ever notice.
My bra review
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I like to get my money’s worth, no matter what I’m investing in. When it comes to bras, I appreciate versatility more than anything. Even though this is a push-up bra, its purpose isn’t limited to plunging necklines and sexy dresses. Although it definitely serves its purpose as a cleavage-enhancer, it isn’t limited to just that.
This is a push-up bra you can wear when cleaning up around the house, or picking your kid up from school. The comfort and security are always present, and when you decide to reveal your bold side, this bra has your back.
