Victoria’s Secret Bras : Likes and Dislikes

You need a bra so you hop into your car and make haste for the nearest Victoria’s Secret. You want to get something pretty or something fun. Something sexy. Something your grandmother wouldn’t wear. Victoria’s Secret bras offer a grand diversity of styles, colors, and materials that you can spend hours wading through but not everything about bra shopping, even at the best lingerie shop, is copacetic.

Sure, styles are fun, but what always comes first? You got it! Sizing. The staff is usually friendly and knowledgeable but you can’t help the urge to hunch your shoulders and fervently wish for a crack to split the fitting room floor and envelope your being. For many women the results from the session with the measuring tape brings about a problem. Will they have your size in a style and color you like?

If you are large-busted then you are familiar with the dreaded disappointmeant that accompanies the discovery that a bra you had your eye on doesn’t come in the DDD size you need. However, Victoria’s Secret has a decent variety for larger sizes. The collection isn’t huge but you can certainly find something that rings your bell. One pet peeve is that it is difficult to find bras that are not padded. You’ve already got enough of your own, you don’t need faux bustiness. You have that covered.

Padding aside, price has to be the biggest dislike of Victoria’s Secret bras. You can get almost nothing for less than $50 and the bigger your size, the steeper the price. Granted, you should pay for quality but if you’re in the market for a new bra, you might be interested in buying more than one. “Interested” until you discover half of your paycheck will be required to purchase just two cute, pretty bras in DDD. Sometimes triple the price isn’t worth it but Victoria’s Secret has a way of making you forget your misgivings when you find that bra with the perfect fit.
