Us girls have it ROUGH. We have these THINGS on our chests we’re supposed to keep perky and pushed together, which requires straps and hooks, but then we want to wear strapless/backless/sexy stuff without straps and hooks showing.
I mean. Seriously, ladies. Sometimes I don’t know how we get through the day.
But luckily, there’s a beautiful solution. Like the Topsy Tail was to boring ponytails. Or Plan B after a drunken night with your ex.
It’s the NuBra, and I’m sure many (if not most) of you have heard of it, but I’m a NuBra
newbie nubie and have to share my love for my new bosom buddy. And because I have a webcam and penchant for awkwardness, I made an instructional video.
All I have to say is that right after I finished this video last week, famed blogger (and one of my girl crushes) The Man Repeller posted an entry wearing this:
Obviously she’s spying on me, which I’m totally fine with.
But back to the rack. I have the NuBra Feather Lite ($32) and am 100% obsessed with it. It stays perfectly put (I don’t know what kind of sticky stuff they use, but it’s magical), is totally comfortable, and the cleavage is pretty impressive. PLUS, you’ll never have a bra muffin top (you know what I’m talking about). And speaking of muffins, I want one of these.
Now if you’re wearing something extra
slutty revealing and even the NuBra is too much coverage, Bristols Six Nippies Skin Nipple Covers ($24) are the absolute breast best. Even Rachel Zoe says so (not that she has much to work with in the chest region, but she still knows her stuff). These babies are “made with exclusive ultra-thin Invisifeel™ matte silicone for the smoothest coverage possible,” and they come in three shades to meticulously match your skin so they won’t show through any clothing, even sheer knits and white blouses.
And while you’re on the Bristols Six site, may as well check out the “couture” coverings (since Valentine’s Day is coming up and all).
As for where to buy, I purchased my NuBra at Fab’rik in Atlanta. You can order via the NuBra site and can also find on Amazon. Go with your cup size (duh), and if you’re on the smaller side of a cup, I still recommend that size instead of going down (ie. I’m a smaller C and I wear the C NuBra). The Nippies are on Amazon, too.
You’ll be breast friends forever.
