One uneventful May weekend, the boyfriend and I decided to escape from real life and treat ourselves to three days in Santa Monica. The weather was sort of blah for May, so we went shopping. Fred Segal, I said. We are going to Fred Segal.
But everything in the store was too expensive, or seemed too trendy, or was not quite too expensive or too trendy, but just completely unnecessary. Then the woman in the lingerie room introduced me to the Duet Lace Demi Underwire Bra ($33).
It’s simply amazing for small to medium chests – it lifts the girls and looks damned good doing it. The band around your ribcage stays put, and, I kid you not, it disappears under most t-shirts.
The boyfriend is long gone, but the bra, which I now own in four colors, is very much around. At least five days a week. And sometimes when I go to bed, too…because it’s just that wonderful.
