Modesty Fights Back: New Cleavage-Covering Bra Accessories

April 1, 2008 by Rebekah

Last summer, I bought a fantastic wrap dress for half off.  It’s the kind of thin jersey thing you don’t really want to wear a tank underneath, so off I trotted to work, camisole-less.  Halfway through my morning commute, I looked down and was horrified to find my nude bra more-than-peeking out of the neckline.  Camisole-less was not going to cut it for the office.  Cue emergency Duane Reade stop, lots of fiddling with tiny safety pins, and lateness to work.

The creators of the Figs Bra (left, $38) and the Winkee (right, $15-$16) saw this gap in the cleavage coverage market, filled until now by paper clips, self-conscious hands, and the aforementioned safety pins. Both products provide coverage without the bulk of a tank top.

The Figs Bra, which can be worn as a regular bra, comes with a detachable stretch lace overlay that covers up the patch of skin that low-cut clothes leave bare.

The Winkee, which very much resembles a thong, is a triangular piece of fabric that you stick on to your own bra with Winkeedots, single-use sticky circles that hold the Winkee in place.
