For the past few years, I’ve told you that the bras by Shapeez are my all-time favorites. After breast cancer surgery (lumpectomy and a lymph node removed) in August, I gained a new level of respect for Shapeez. Going braless for even a few minutes caused pain and extreme discomfort, so I even slept in a bra for about two weeks. (Thankfully, the Ultimate Pretty bras are indeed so comfortable you can sleep in them.) The radiation treatments are now completed, so I am focused on healing and regaining my energy.
Please get your yearly mammogram. Early detection is the best tool to fight breast cancer.
I was still in my thirties when I first noticed bra bulge in the three-way mirror while trying on a knit top at The Limited. For decades afterward, I made sure my tops didn’t show those rolls and bulges caused by wearing banded bras all those years. I now have the confidence to remove my jacket while wearing slim-fitting sweaters and knit tops, thanks to the back smoothing support provided by Shapeez bras. Bra bulge is no longer an issue.
The necklace is here, and the earrings are here. The ring is here. The mock neck top is here. The pants are here. The heels are here. The belt and bag are both a couple of years old. Similar belt and bag. (When I buy men’s belts, I buy them two inches larger than my waist.)
A styling tip to remember if you have a larger bust. When you wear a loose-fitting sweater or top, you don’t conceal your bust. Instead, you look larger if the garment falls straight from your bustline.
The Ultimate Pretty Bras are here. Your 15% off discount code is Susan1023. Shapeez is not compensating me, but I am always happy to share discount codes when I can get them.
I’ve also been wearing the Retro Brief from Soma here for several years. VPL (visible panty lines) are no longer a concern.
