So…we’ve discussed the failed jeans shopping with the weight loss. But, we haven’t talked about the “girls.” Yes, those.
I’ve breastfed three kiddos. Gone through the pregnanies and the weight gain and now the deflation (and they are still in working order). Bra shopping is right up there with jeans shopping for me.
Because I’m still breastfeeding, I’ve been wearing a nursing bra. The same couple that I got with the first kiddo. I guess you could say they are a little stretched out and probably not so supportive. So, I was pretty happy to try out the Genie Bra. It doesn’t have an underwire, thankfully because underwires aren’t really comfortable lately (and seem to cause me mastitis). Already winning points without even putting it on.
And, then I put it on. It was a little snug going over my head (no clasps or hooks to irritate, but means it goes on more like a sports bra), but fit very comfortably once in place. Most importantly, the girls were up and located where they were supposed to be. The fabric is crazy, too. I’m told it conforms to any cup size (obviously, I only have one at the time)! So, in theory, it would have fit when they were much bigger…like “preggo” girls or “my milk just came in” girls. Plus, it never looses its shape, so unlike my nursing bra, it won’t stretch out after wearing it one time. And yet, it has a wide band design that lifts and separates so there’s no uniboob.
It can also doubles as a camisole. I see this as a plus, but I noticed on a couple shirts that came up higher, the straps stuck out. Maybe it was just that particular neckline? Because the front center didn’t show.
While it doesn’t have a flap to flip down for nursing, I’ve found it’s very easy to either raise up or lower down depending on my preference and the top I’m wearing. I went back and forth on which was better, but they both worked. And, it was nice that I didn’t feel like I was saggy.
They also make Slim and Tone Leggings that are the same material that helps to pull everything in, but not give you a uni-butt! They keep things tight and in place and help your legs and butt not look lumpy (if you have lumps…I have lumps!)
It’s definitely a comfortable bra and an added bonus that it acts as a camisole without having to wear a ton of layers (which I feel makes my tummy look thicker).
I wrote this review while participating in a Blog Tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Genie Bra and received products to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
