I’ll start with the bra:
It’s summertime and going strapless is a given in L.A. It’s heating up and the bras are flying off. Personally, I’ve despised every strapless bra I’ve *ever* tried. Always soooo uncomfortable. And almost always with underwire — oh, don’t get me started on wired bras! Who was the misogynist who fangled those instruments of feminine torture?! And the poking…Ugh! Those wires hurt. Rib-rubbing wires — does that sound like a comfy way to spend the day in the California sun? Not fun. Back to Glamorise — this is one of the most comfy bras. It does not squish or cut off circulation; it requires no wire — AND it holds! I was shocked, actually. When I first got it (ordered it online), I expected it to be one of those types where you’re constantly having to adjust and pull it up…may as well be smacking some chewing gum wearing daisy dukes while at it, right? So classy… 😀
Anyway, you won’t have to suffer with the “tube-boob” look either. I like the lace top part; if your top is lower cut, the bit of lace showing through looks nice. It’s also inexpensive: JC Penny has it for $15; I think I’ll get them from in-store next time.
I’ve also tried a stick on silicone-type, which did not hold for me (didn’t stick well) and was uncomfortable; however, that one looks like a better one. Then there are the paper adhesives which I used when in high school, haha. Not ideal, but do work if needed (do not lift and hold; mostly for coverage); and there are nipple covers, which I haven’t tried, but seem pretty much the same deal. While I’m at it, fashion tape is a Summer must! Great for dress-up time too 😉 .
Okay, so Glamorise Strapless — Big
Onward to the Emjoi. I had this for over a year before I even used it — I kid you not. Why? I don’t know. It seemed like a hassle for some reason…at the time, anyway. I think because it had to be charged for some time first (I know, I know, what’s the big deal?) But that was just silly! As I stripped, pulled, rubbed (do NOT even waste your $ — at least for the face), and sugared my body raw instead. Ack! I could have been plucking and done in minutes with this thing-a-ma-jiggy! Only a light pinching sensation; no biggie. It does get at the root and lasts. That’s a big deal because having to deal with shaving, plucking, waxing or whatever, often, is a pain in the follicle. Again, only minutes till you’re ready to go. Love this! Another
I just realized I could ramble on and on about bras; but since no one is reading this, who cares? 😀
