When I was 12 years old, I wore a D cup bra, which not only brought me lots of attention from my horny male classmates; it also started my shoulders and back on a 20 year path to pain. I’ve tried countless bras with and without padded straps and under wire, and still my shoulders still look like mini Grand Canyons.
Recently, I stumbled across the Kewi bra, a strapless bra, launching in June of 2014, that claims to lift cup sizes D-K automatically by using “floating devices” and a device which “uses magnetic force to convert the downward force of the breasts to an upward force with a lift potential of 11.2 pounds”. The device also absorbs shock during movement to keep breasts in place.
As tempting as this sounds, it does not come without a hefty price tag: $150 (or $99 if you pre-order before December 10th of this year). Since I usually spend about $20 on my bras, that’s a lot for me to swallow. However, when my back is screaming at me at the end of a long day, it seems like a steal!
Question of the day: Would you spend $150 for a bra, especially if you can’t try it on first? Why or why not? Where do you usually buy your bras? Why?
