Fashion Find: Hold The Girls High With Va Bien Lingerie

March 3, 2008 by SheFindsShana

Spill it, Julia: we know you were wearing something under that gorgeous red dress in Pretty Woman (despite what you told Richard Gere). No one’s breasts are that naturally perky.
Don’t want to share? That’s fine, because I have a secret weapon of my own: deliciously French lingerie from Va Bien.

Now, I’m a busty girl (we’re talking DD/E) who’s always looking for a bit of a lift and shape. Recently, I tried out two of Va Bien’s pieces – the Ultra-Lift Seamless Bustier and the Ultra-Lift Low Plunge Body Briefer – and instantly became a believer.

The bustier (item #1503, $75, sizes 34B to 40DDD) is a convertible dream come true. It has no visible boning, and thus no visible lines after you’re dressed. Its patented “Ultra-Lift” cups are basically magic: they lift and support, positioning your breasts in exactly the right spot. With the bustier on, I look perky and proportional without seeming fake. (Incidentally, the garters are detachable.)

One word of caution: make sure you have someone to help you with the hooks – I could not get them done up by myself. The bustier runs true to bra size, but if you’re toward the small end of your band size (as I am), you can size down in the band and up in the cup.

The Low Plunge Body Briefer (item #1500, $80, sizes 32C to 38D) lives up to its name. It is low – the V in front came down well below my cleavage, and the back had a shallower V whose point ended at the center of my back. The cups are made of the same magical stuff as those of the bustier, but the briefer's cups are cut in a demi-bra style (perfect for halters). The straps are detachable, but because of the demi cup, I’ll probably keep them on and wear it with non-strapless tops and dresses.

The same sizing rules apply for the briefer: if you’re on the small end of your band size, you can probably size down in the band and up in the cup.

Both garments – as well as many other goodies – are available on Va Bien’s Web site. Check them out, and you’ll be putting Julia to shame in no time.
