Hanes.com Bra Review

Ok So I knew something was going on when I started to get the dreaded bra strap marks on my shoulders. I knew my boobs had grown, but I was thinking about a cup size or maybe even a half a cup size. I went to my favorite bra store, Cacique to get fitted. Imagine my surprise when she told me I was now a 34DDD and that they didn't have my band size, only my cup size. I left and went home with my sore shoulders and aching boobs. How could I have grown 2 sizes in 4 years?!? Then it hit me, we as women have to get fitted for new bras on a regular basis because our bodies are always changing. Weight gain, weight loss, menopause..all are factors in the size of our breast. Many women are already wearing the incorrect size bra and are for some reason afraid to embrace the curves up top. After not having success at Cacique,I took to the internet and came across Hanes. They had a great sale going on, free shipping with a purchase of  $60 or more, and delivery was quick. I got 4 great bras for $73.15 with tax.




Bali Underwire Bra- sale price $14.99 original price $38.00 



pros-

*Great full coverage

*Thicker straps so it offers great shoulder              comfort
*Under wire is comfortable and really lifts your boobies

cons-

*The area around the nipples are cut to a     point so they can make the nipple area        appear bigger than what they really are.
     
*This bra is thin and has no padding or          lining so if you get cold there will be a        bit of nipple showing through thin or       fitted tops. 

Final Opinion- This is a good bra. Due to it not having an lining I will only wear this bra with a top or dress that is thicker due to the possible nipple show. I order this bra in a 34DDD and in a 36DDD. I go up a band size somethings just for a bit of added comfort. In this style the 34DDD was a perfect fit.

*The back offers coverage of back and bra rolls
         
 *Lining to prevent nipples from               showing
  *Under wire is comfortable and offers        good lift and support

cons-

We all need a little style help from time to time, and you can get it daily here at Style by L. Thomas! Have a question email us at stylebylthomas@yahoo.com or leave it below in the comment section. Let's get to today's question. 

Question- I'm 45 years old and my family and friends tell me I'm to old to hear the high heels that I wear. I don't like kitten heels, but I do like wedges. Am I to old to be wearing 4 -6 inch heels? What the right height heel for me?

Answer- If you can still walk in them without trouble, then continue to rock them. There are no rules when it comes fashion. Don't allow any one to decide what fits your style. Rock those heels til you can't anymore!!!
