I didn’t know that there was something that could be done.
And I certainly didn’t expect it could be so easy to fix.
Seriously mama…I have #sleevage and I thought I’d just have to live with it.
What?? You don’t know what sleevage is? Let me explain. We’re about to get personal too, so brace yourself.
Shopping for Intimate Clothing
First of all I don’t really like shopping for intimate clothing. I’m not talking lacy lingerie because really who has time for THAT these days.
What I am talking about is buying every day items like bras because I can never seem to find ones that fit well. There’s usually something awry, either the straps are too thin, there something that itches or pinches or pulls. And when you want to make the best of your ‘girls’ and how they look it can be difficult to find something that not only cradles your assets but treats them right.
In the past few years I’ve found myself really liking Warner’s bras as I find them most comfortable. And while I would love to get all fancy and pretty, I really just want to find a bra that fits well.
It’s not that Warner’s Bras aren’t pretty. They are. But the kind I’m looking for these days are all about form and function and not about wearing them for 10 minutes before they come off if you catch my drift.
That’s just not part of the venacular these days. but I digress…
Let’s get back to #Sleevage
Sleevage is that bit under your arm that seems to find it’s way out of your bra, making for a not so nice silhouette under your clothes. Did you know that most women over 25 have side bulge? Whew! It’s not just me!
And while it is certainly not something to be ashamed of, because seriously we don’t need another thing to stress about it, if we can include the side bulge into the girls everything would be in it’s place and frankly make the most of what you’ve got.
The Test Drive
When I was asked to test drive a Warner Bra I wasn’t sure that I was the right person. I am not one to shop online for clothes in general so I was concerned I would get something that wouldn’t fit. But when I got the No Side Effects bra in the mail I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did it fit well but it was also soft and smooth. I felt like it was keeping my girls in line with a sort of gentle hug! Seriously, after a few days of wearing it I didn’t want to take it off. I am one of those who even wears a bra at home but maybe that’s too much information.
Here’s the before and after shots I took of myself to show you.
The side bulge is gone and I am a happy mama!
You have to get this bra! End of. And now for another look, this time on a real model.
