Conceal, Not Reveal

I got a new Bali bra in the hospitality suite for fashion week, and have been test running it every since. Available at Macy's Herald Square, this bra taught me something it's taken me years to learn: cheap bras aren't worth the money. Normally I grab a bra at H&M or Target. But Bali has taught me that one doesn't need to be tugging at one's bra all day long. It is worth it to spend a little more money for a nice bra.

And the new Bali "Concealers" bra (right) incorporates one of my favorite underpinning must-haves: the breast petal. Usually I buy these at H&M or in the lingerie department of Macy's, wear them once in lieu of the bra (thanks to my less-endowed physique) and toss them away. But the new Bali bra has them built in, so NOTHING shows. A good day bra, right ladies? At night I'm assuming most of us don't mind if all is not neatly tucked away from view.

So, to recap, this is a very comfortable bra, is tagless, and conceals all. My only complaint is that it's a little bullet-bra looking, but I think I got ambitious with the cup size. Which reminds me, most women wear the wrong bra size, so ask the experts at Macy's lingerie to help you with fit.
