With that said I'm happy that my first post of the new year is on my favorite shapewear company: Orchard Corset! They are well known for making off-the-rack corsets that look and feel as if they are custom made. The quality of their beautiful corsets, as well as their commitment to excellent customer care, is simply unmatched! But did you know that in addition to corsets they sell many different types of foundation garments? Corsets may be their specialty but they have you covered from bust to booty, quite literally, when it comes to looking amazing underneath your clothes.
Today I'm going to show you one of the most fantabulous creations since the invention of the wheel. I mean this. Whether you're a pinup aficionado, a business woman on the go-go-go, or a laid-back jeans & t-shirt kind of gal, you are going to want the Vedette Underbust Bra Booster in your underwear drawer. And I'm going to show you exactly WHY.
Now I'm quite the fluffy lady, but I know that every woman in the universe deals with the dreaded back rolls that come with wearing a bra. There is no escape from it... or so I thought. I've included a rather embarrassing picture of my own bra rolls for your
(Don't judge me for my use of B&W photography. It's slightly more forgiving...)
In the next two photos I'm wearing the Vedette Underbust Bra Booster. Now I assure you that I'll get to the boobie boosting abilities in a bit, but I figure the elimination of back rolls takes upmost importance.
(A back view: Smoooooth & sleek!)
(A front view: You can see how it smoothes my sides from the front as well!)
Next up: BOOOOBIES!
I like to think I have pretty average size chesticles. They're not too small, not too big, not really just right, but they'll do... they are, however, 41 year old breasts that fed three babies back in the 1990's. So basically what I'm saying is they need all the boosting help they can get.
(Not too shabby, but they could use a boost...)
(Please ignore my stink face, I was feeling self conscious.)
Oh look above - there's a boost! Now keep in mind that it doesn't give you over-the-top porn cleavage, but it does perk the girls back up to their former glory. And if you'll notice, the bra rolls on the sides are somewhat diminished as well. Being a fuller-figure chick they will not be eliminated completely, but my sides are smoothed quite a bit and I'm pretty darn content with that!!
(Expression changed... put on a corset for instant confidence!)
Of course if you'd like that wonderfully over-the-top porn cleavage, just throw on an underbust corset for maximum va-va-voom! I added the CS- 201 Waist Trainer Satin Waspie Corset. I also committed a grave sin and tied my laces around my waist. Ladies, DO NOT do this. It's bad for your corset. In my (somewhat weak) defense I only did this for the photos. At any rate, for chesticle boosting abilities I give it an A+!
(Up close and personal so you can see what a ginormous *pun intended* difference these two foundation garments make!!)
(The combo of the bra booster & corset give an all over sleek appearance, even under clingy clothing!)
So in summary I will say this: I figured the bra booster would make some difference, but, if I'm being honest, I wasn't expecting it to be so drastic, neither in its smoothing effects nor its boosting properties...I'm beyond happy and it definitely surpassed my expectations!! And adding an underbust corset to the mix *WOW* makes it simply spectacular!
The Vedette Underbust Bra Booster from Orchard Corset comes in sizes XS to XL and in two perfect undergarment colors: Black & Beige. The lace detailing on the underbust cups gives it a sexy feel, while the wide straps and wide non-rolling band are a godsend and keep everything in place without slipping straps or additional body rolls. It closes in the back with a secure hook & eye closure and is priced very well at $63 USD. I say it often, and sometimes frivolously, but this is truly a piece that every woman needs. Happy shopping!
