Hola mis amores!
I hope this month has been treating you well! Since quarantine started I've been focused on comfort (like pretty much everyone in the world lol) and that includes the bras I wear. To be perfectly honest, most days I go braless but there are occasions when I feel the need to wear one like for a meeting, going or for errands, or even just to help with my posture a bit. Yes, your bra absolutely helps with posture but you have to be in the right size!
Anywho, I was gifted this awesome bralette from Curvy Kate and I want to give y'all a little review.
I've only ever owned one other bralette that was made in my actual bra size and it was okay, but it wasn't the best. The straps weren't adjustable so I didn't get the support I could have had they been. Since I'm super short, adjustable straps are really important for me. Don't get me wrong, the band on that bad boy did its job and kept me up but the straps were just too wide and long for my little torso for the bra to be comfortable for all-day wear.
This Unwind Bralette though is the complete opposite! It has close-set adjustable straps, so it's perfect for those with sloping shoulders. It's incredibly light and soft so it's great for the summer months and even better for winter when you're wearing chunky sweaters but don't want anything bulky underneath! I'm wearing the Caramel color in the size 30dd/e, but it's available in 3 other colors as well: Black, Mink and Cocoa!
I absolutely love that they included different "nude" tones to include options for a range of skin tones. Many bralettes don't have those options. It's also available in a wide range of sizes! It's made in UK cups DD-JJ and band sizes 30-40.
Check out the lift this style give me, and that's with no wire! It honestly amazed me how lifted I was when I first put it on. I wore it for a full day of errands and forgot I even had it on. There was no dreaded boob sweat, no adjusting and no itchiness from the fabric. That last bit is very important to me because my skin is really sensitive so certain fabrics just don't agree with me.
The only thing that I can you might have to watch out for would be the band rolling on you, but that's pretty normal in styles like these because there's no band to anchor the fabric and everyone has rolls so the fabric is just going to roll with you. That's okay though! Don't fret or feel like your body is weird or the bra is defective or that it doesn't fit. If the band is snug, you're comfortable and lifted then you're golden!
If you want one of your own, use code BRABUN10 for money off your order! The code expires on April 4th, but it works on sale items too, and guess what?! Curvy Kate has a sale going on RIGHT NOW so go check them out!
Until next time! Peace and love to Infinity and Beyond.
