A Find: Maidenform Dream Bra

January 3, 2006 by SheFindsKim

What are the most important qualities in a bra? The Maidenform Dream Bra has every quality I need except one.

Let’s look at them all:

Comfort and fit – If it doesn’t fit well and feel good on, forget it. But in this regard, the bra really is a dream. There are no scratchy straps that dig into my shoulders.

Cost – A $200 bra won’t get a second look from me no matter how pretty it is (OK, maybe it’ll get a second look but not a third).

Looks – The look of the bra itself is key, but how it looks under clothing is important also. This one is barely noticeable under my tightest microfiber t-shirts.

Support – At my size (36DD), I have to be careful to get a bra that supports me well. Few things can ruin a nice outfit quicker than droopy boobs! Of course, breasts like missiles aren’t much better. Ever see photos of 1950’s fashion? Big, pointy chests were the trend back then. But those things could poke your eye out.

Shape – Here, things seem strangely unnatural. Presumably to minimize size, the bra flattens the bust, making it spread outward. It also flattens the bottom of the bustline, so it looks like it’s resting on an invisible shelf. It makes me look a bit “smushed.” But the bra is also versatile and can be converted to a crisscross style. So, all told, the good outweighs the bad. And smaller women can probably deal with the shape issue better than I can.
