For anyone just tuning in, Im currently in the process of moving to Seattle (yay!). While Im super-excited, Im also super-busy. I dont want to put my blog on hold for the next few weeks, so Im going to have to be a bit more creative with my posts.
Usually, when I write a review, I make every effort to research the product meticulously beforehand. However, due to time constraints, this post will be a bit more off the cuff. Today, Im discussing the Stretch Bullet Bra from Cameo Intimates. Lets see how it goes
My bra size is a smallish 34B. While I appreciate my petite bustline, it makes it hard for me to fill out a regular bra, much less a retro-styled bullet brawhich is really a shame because I love them so. While you can purchase cup fillers, especially for the pointier styles, its getting warm outside. When the temperature reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit with 100% humidity, the last thing I want to do is add an extra layer of foam rubber to my underwear. Plus, its not easy to wear super-pointy cups under my daily uniform of a jeans and a t-shirt.
Thats why the Cameo Intimates Sheer Bullet Bra appealed to me. Not only were the cups only moderately pointy, this bra (with its wide straps, sheer cups, and elastic bands) seemed to emphasize the balance between comfort and couture. I ordered the color black in size 34B, and I am quite pleased with this purchase.
Not only did the bra fit true to size, it was eminently comfortable and sexy in a subtle way. Unlike most of my other bullet bras which simply arent suitable for daily wear, this is a bra I can pull out anytime and it goes with everything, from my most casual jeans and flats to my dressiest skirts and pumps. The sheer lace makes it really pretty, and the padded shoulder straps make it really comfortable.
As with many of the products I talk about here, the downside is the price. At $64.88 USD, this bra isnt cheap. However, it is custom made, hand-crafted, and sewn to your specifications. Furthermore, if you buy this bra in a basic color, it could become a staple piece in your lingerie wardrobe. And, as a final boost, dont forget about the 20% off discount code I posted for Cameo Intimates a couple of weeks ago, making the price a more affordable $51.90 USD.
This bra is available in sizes 34-42B, 34-42C, 34-42D, and 34-42DD. The available colors are black, white, nude (limited edition), white w/black polka dots, white w/ red polka dots, black w/white polka dots, black w/lime green polka dots, black w/dark red polka dots, black w/aqua polka dots, and white w/rainbow polka dots. If you have any other questions, or would like more details, dont hesitate to make a comment.
