A Strapless Bra That Works?!

Finding a strapless bra that is comfortable and supportive is nearly impossible.  Finding one that doesn't slowly slide down your gut every other minute is like trying to locate a unicorn.  They just don't exist -- or so I thought.

[Me and my MySpace Face in my favorite LBD.  Sweet knee brace, yo.]

Due to a major weight gain over the past year and a half, I have been forced to purchase a new wardrobe.


Sick of seeing this picture yet?  LOL!  This was taken shortly after I began putting on excess weight.  You can't really tell here, but I am thirty pounds heavier than I am in the first photo!  I later gained another twenty, but have recently lost ten pounds.  (I was on a medication that made me balloon up, but am off it now.)  Oy vey.

My favorite thing to throw on when it's scorching hot outside is a no-fuss cotton dress.  However, I refuse to wear them if my straps are exposed.  (Bra straps, that is.  Gun straps are okay as I am proud of the thug life I lead.  Ha!)  After scouring the Internet, I discovered a strapless bra that functions the way a proper strapless bra should.  Seriously. 

Ladies and drag queens, allow me to introduce you to:

You can also rock it as a halter, crossback, one strap, or classic bra.  The great part is, it has a rubbery-type liner that prevents it from sliding down.  My days of appearing as though I have a bust that hangs down to my waist are over.  I highly recommend you strapless dress lovers check this bad boy out!


So, I feel the need to apologize for not responding to the wonderful comments you all have left me.  I read and appreciate every single one of them.  I have been consumed with a project that I can't wait to share with y'all.  (I am turning one of my favorite hobbies into a business!  It involves beads and charms.  :))  Stay tuned!

OMG I love the zebra print on the bra shown here!! I used to not like VS, but after discovering that their Secret Embrace fits me SO PERFECT, I'm giving them another chance! I def want to give this "Plunge" bra a try!

Anya said...

I'M A 34C AND STRAPLESS BRAS GIVE ME A HARD TIME WITH SLIPPAGE...USUALLY THEY WORK REALLY WELL FOR THE SMALLER GALS, BUT NOT SO MUCH THE MEDIUM GALS...YA FEEL ME??!!? I DON'T WEAR ALOT OF MY CUTE SUMMER DRESSES BECAUSE OF UGLY STRAPS...BUT IF YOU SAY THIS SUCKER WORKS I'M GONNA GIVE IT A TRY..WISH ME LUCK!

sophia - VS is my favorite place to shop for undergarments. I haven't heard of the bra you're talking about, but I'll have to check it out!

Anya - I have always wondered if those work! Do they leave behind a residue? I'm scared they're going to break me out. I have the wussiest skin ever! LOL!

Dye - I feel your pain! I used to be a C, but now I'm a DD. (Yeah, I need to put down the cupcakes. LOL!) The DD bra fits me like a dream, so you should be just fine! Lemme know how it works!

Strapless bras are the worst for me to find. I am narrow but need a larger cup so it's like impossible!! I have a CK strapless that sort of works but good thing I don't have to wear it too often:)

You look beautiful!!!

giang said...

Ebru said...

I want that exact same bra in the picture! I love to express my wild side like that! haha LOL @ thug life!!! :) Wow, 10 lbs is great!! Way to go! I don't think you look like you gained weight at all, you look really pretty! ;)

Irene said...

Kate! I LOVE how you phrase things, it always makes me LOL - I am sadly one of those gals that is constantly wearing their strapless bras around their waist. *sigh* I have to give this one a try, though maybe at the next semi-annual where I will probably pick it up in bright neon lime or blue leopard. :)

~Lisa said...

MUST CHECK THIS OUT!! It feels so awkward when I'm in public and my bra feels like it's slipping!! Nooo

love that bra!!!! I'm a 32D and I'm lucky if anything is made in that size, walmart and target don't even sell it, VS doesn't make it for all their bra's and the clearance section has like one bra and it has a hole where the nipple should be, errrr, no thanks!

did u see the video i sent? you are sooooo a bethesda thug!! bethesda is a pretty snooty area and it's full of kids that are "thugs" it's quite funny

umm, weight gain sucks, meds suck, being sick sucks, you're talkin to one who has to take meds but detests them, ughhh

I reallllllly hope you're doing better, seeing as you've lost weight, I'm guessing you are :D

YAY for a new business venture :D

my laptop battery is dead and it's 3 am...going to bed, lol

XOXO

Hehehe, lol @ gun straps, and "ladies and drag queens". You're so funny hehe. Thanks for sharing this new find. I totally agree, strapless bras can be a pain. What do you think of clear bra straps?
