I recently lost a little weight, and—wouldn’t ya know it?—it was mostly from my boobs. Rather than dropping an entire paycheck on a new bra wardrobe, I decided to test a few inexpensive modifiers.
1. Bralief (3 for $23)
I have been using my Bralief for a while now, and it’s absolutely fantastic. It’s easy to snap on, it’s adjustable and it stays put. Plus, it gives just enough extra lift that I feel perky but not like I’m wearing the world’s most padded push-up.
2. Strap Perfect (6 for $10)
Stap Perfect’s little plastic holder (it looks kind of like those ’80s T-shirt ties) was really, really hard to put on—as soon as I got one strap looped over the hook, the other would pop out. But once I finally got it hooked, it did its job. Strap Perfect is better than Bralief for hiding straps under tanks, but the promised “extra cup size” provided just a tad too much va-va-va-voom for everyday wear.
3. LG Accessories Bra Extender (3 for $4)
Now that I’m sporting a smaller bra size, I’ve dusted off some of the too-small bras I paid a fortune for and then stashed away. To bridge the gap between too small and just right, I bought some LG Accessories bra extenders. The two-, three- or four-hook extenders are simple to snap into place and give that extra wiggle room I’ll need as my bra size changes.
