I saw a call-out for bloggers to review a full cup bra recently. I was curious, because I’ve always used under-wired and unpadded bras and I couldn’t imagine what this one might look like, or, feel like, to wear. Last week I published an interesting infographic about the history of the bra. When we visited Snibston museum recently there was an exhibit asking us to vote on what we thought were the best inventions of the 21st century and I voted for the bra. It was a tongue-in-cheek vote but honestly, they allow women to bounce, run, and not have to think about our mammaries in daily life.
Here is some information about the bra:
Rediscover your best ever shape with Playtex’s innovative new top-cup padded bra, Contour Perfection
Playtex has recently launched a major innovation for women wanting to rediscover their ‘full’ (breast) potential. Contour Perfection is Playtex’s first bra with top cup padding, helping women restore natural fullness and a beautifully youthful shape.
Having led the way in lingerie innovation since the introduction of its first girdle in 1955, Playtex created the revolutionary new Contour Perfection bra after hearing from thousands of 35+ women, searching far and wide for a way to restore breast fullness without going under the knife.
After breastfeeding for a very long time and suffering from mastitis in the early days my boobs are a bit wonky and not as inflated as they used to be. This bra definitely makes them both look the same again, and gives a great silhouette. I expected it to feel bulky with the full cup padding but it’s actually very comfortable and I cant even tell I am wearing it. It’s supportive enough for a light jog, and you can’t tell which breast is the smaller one unless you look closely with my top off.
They were kind enough to send two, and when one of them was the perfect fit, I gave the other to my cousin to test, also a post-breastfeeding mum. She loves it as much as I do and tells me that she wears it a lot.
