Over the last year I've lost well over 100Lbs, and find myself torn between the sizes of lingerie I'd wear. I'm currently borderline plus sizes, and regular sizes. Depending of the brand, style, fabrics, I can be a plus size, or an XL. Since I've been dropping so much weight, I almost didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on bras, as I know I'm going to continue to drop more. For those of you who haven't been following my weight loss journey, I opted for gastric bypass surgery, which was the best decision of my life. I've gone from wearing a 48DD to a 36D... wow! I notice it all over my body, but my boobs sure notice the difference. With all that weight loss, I needed to invest in a high supporting bra, to help prevent hanging breasts. Yes, unfortunately at the age of 31, I now have hanging boobs.
Because of my journey, I prefer to shop and support companies that cater to REAL women. We come in all shapes and sizes, and Pampered Passions actually recognize that. They carry plus sizes up to 4X, and bra sizes up to 50H. Another thing that I liked about the plus size section, was that they actually used a plus size model for those products. Nothing worse then shopping for a size 20 and seeing a model that's a size 2! Thank you Pampered Passions for being real. They carry regular sizes too, and have a wide range of items that they sell: sexy lingerie, bridal lingerie, plus sizes, sexy costumes, stockings, bras, corsets, robes, and much more! I can easily spend over an hour searching and looking through their stuff.
I received two bras, and one bra and pantie set from Pampered Passions, as a great celebration of the new year and new me. One month has passed since the beginning of 2012, and I'm still on the road to becoming healthier day by day. Pampered Passions takes pride in all woman's shapes and sizes, and even offer medical apparel for many different woman who are in need: pre and post operative intimate apparel. The two bras that I received were the: Wacoal Bodysuede Underwire Bra, a Lunaire bra (but I can't find the exact design: similar to Lunaire Sevilla Embroidered No Wire Bra), and the Axami Lucy Push-up Bra and Panties set.
The two regular bras fit me wonderfully, and are such good quality. Much better then what I was purchasing at Walmart. Not that Walmart isn't good, they're great for many things, but when it comes to bras actually holding the girls up, these are amazing. These both feel great, and look great, and are strong enough to run a marathon in. I'm not ready to run one yet, but they're strong enough for if and when I do.
The bra is like a corset in the middle at the front, as it laces up and can be tied to however you like. You have an option to wear this bra with or without straps, so it's perfect for so many types of clothing. I love at how it pushes my breasts up, and adds cleavage, which I was missing since the weight loss. The fabrics are soft against the skin, and the lace isn't itchy one bit. You truly get what you pay for, and everything that I received from Pampered Passions are top quality.
There's so many things that I love about this company: lingerie for REAL woman, plus sizes, bridal gift registry, Breast Cancer Pirates Unite Support Group, Pampered Passions Care Wear, and so much more!
