I’ve been habitually complaining about my desire to wear racer back tops this summer, and how I can’t deal with the strapless bra I thought it required in order to not have my bra straps showing. Since I have serious strapless bra issues (ie they make me short of breath and I hate them), I decided to take myself over to the bra experts at Underwear here in Austin to find a solution. Right away I was shown the most beautifully simple racer back bra complete with a front closure, lacy back, in a pretty light peach color. When I put it on, I couldn’t believe how comfortable it felt. Since the straps meet in the back, between your shoulder blades, instead of on the sides, the weight is all placed squarely and it gives you more of a stable lift. And there’s nothing like a stable-lifting bra when you’ve got some weight up there. I was also told that smaller-chested women can benefit from the racer back because it can lift more naturally than a regular bra can. Win-win I tell you!
So mark my words: I will never show you my bra straps again. Oh yeah, and this bra actually has super cute stictching on the bra straps! See?
