Victoria’s Secret multiway biofit bra size 32c

I was going to write this review, yesterday, as I wore this bra, but I had a really bad headache after I got off work, and I basically went to bed after eating dinner.

Color: Miami tan

About the bra:

The Miami tan color is a very rich shade of brown. (Not as dark as the photo below)

It features a very very small gore (which is one thing I love about VS bras)

The inside of the bra is a beige suede-like material.

This bra is older than dirt. Lol. I bought this years ago, when VS first brought out the ‘multiway’ bra, and still sold the biofit style.

The inner part of the cups feature two places for the straps to attach, the normal area near the shoulder, as well as one close to the gore. This bra came with both clear and brown straps.

On the wing there is boning

The actual band of the bra has a bunch of ‘cut out’ areas for the strap to hook into, so that it can be worn with a variety of tops.

The review:

I obviously knew this bra wasn’t going to fit. But I wore it anyway, because the dress I wanted to wear called for a strapless bra. And this is the closest thing I have to a fitting strapless bra. I figured if I wore it on the tightest setting it would be ‘okay’. It wasn’t.

this is how I looked when I got home:

Pas you can see, the wire is way below my IMF. The band was on the tightest setting, but the bra did keep sliding down.

I lifted it up, and S&S’ed

Beautiful cleavage. But that’s not what I was going for, because the top of my dress wasn’t low cut. The wire wasn’t completely in my IMF, if I put it all the way up there, I had some boob slipping out the bottom. So that was as high as it could go.

I had the issue of having space between my breast and the wire, but that was to be expected.

The gore obviously didn’t tack. It was a lot worse when I didn’t S&S.

Side view

This bra was simultaneously too tight and too loose at the same time. I don’t know how that was possible. It kept sliding down throughout the day, even though it was on the tightest setting. And I think because it was on the tightest setting, it was too tight on my ribs. It would hurt a little when I inhaled. That was also probably due to the daft that the wires were on my ribs, and not in my IMF.

I was planning on keeping this bra (I listed 16 VS push-up bras on eBay), because I love the color (it’s my nude), and because it’s a strapless, but I think it may have to go into my ‘to sell’ pile. 😥

Victoria’s Secret Pink bra + swooping & scooping

I decided to make this post on a whim, so it’s going to be relatively short, and have only a few pictures.

Swooping and scooping is in general, something that I don’t particular up feel I need to do. Yes, I do want all of my breast tissue to be inside of my bra, however, I don’t believe that I have migrated breast tissue. I’m practically skin & bones, so there’s now her that the tissue has migrated to. But I swoop and scoop anyway.

Bra: Pink by Victoria’s Secret, wear everywhere Demi bra. Size 32C.

When I putt his bra on (just now), my initial thought was, ‘wow! The band is huge.’ VS bra bands are very stretchy. I used to love these bras (I literally own like 20 of them). They were my ‘go to’ bras. But since I’ve found the correct size, or close to it, I haven’t worn these bras since.

Anyway, these are pics of the bra BEFORE swooping and scooping.

The gore doesn’t tack.

Look at how much room is in the band!

Pictures AFTER swooping & scooping.

Close up

Yes, the gore is sitting on my breast tissue.

The gore still doesn’t tack

But it’s closer than before, but look at that quadding!

The band is still big, but not as big as before.

I was initially going to keep all of my VS bras, and just alter the band so they would fit, and I could still have them, but I think it’s time to let them go. Even if I take in the band, the cup is too small. If these bras were 32D, it may have been okay to alter the bands. I’ll probably list all the wear everywhere bras together, instead of selling them separately.

As you can see from the before and after pics, you can see the difference swooping and scooping makes. It’ll show you really. Whether or not a bra you’re wearing fits. I try on some bras and initially I think they’re a little too big, but then when I S&S, they fit.
