Wishlist Wednesday: Neutrals (and my problem with nude)

I mentioned in last week’s Wishlist Wednesday that while color can really bring out the beauty in a bra that isn’t always apparent in a beige, there are some beige bras that I really like the look of. Here are some of them!

One of my favorites is Freya’s Lacey Plunge Balcony bra in Cafe Latte. I don’t know if a non-molded plunge would work better for me than a molded one (which is “not well at all”) but I’m willing to try for polka dots. Lacey is available in 28 D-G, 30 D-K, 34-36 C-K, and 38 C-JJ. Matching brief and thong available in XS-XL, short available in 2XL. (UK sizing)

Where can I buy this?
Freya’s website shows the Lacey as part of their “Essentials” (i.e. neutral continuity line, generally), but several shopping sites are showing this model as discontinued. It is still available at FreshPair.

I’m here for the reviews!

And that means that my boobs slide down underneath the designated boob area. Not cute. At all.

Bigger Bras Aren’t Sexy?

“I’m too fat to wear pretty bras!”
“No one makes any cute bras in my size!”
“With boobs this big I HAVE to wear a minimizer!”
“The only bras that fit me are hideous!”
“I cannot be above a D cup! Do they even make those?!? I’m just gonna go live in a cave.”

Women are really good at hating their bodies. And society is really good at helping them do so. Sorry to tell you this, unhealthy-societal-pressures-that-make-women-hate-their-bodies, but none of those statements up there are true.
