Best Bras for Everyday Wear
Lisa: We will be needing a little sleeve support and more.
Ruby: My name is Ruby and I sleep with my bra. Over the last year, I lost 80 pounds; the healthy way, diet and exercise. Because of the weight loss, my boobies lost inches and became very saggy. I go to department stores, they tell me I am 34, 36, 38? Too big, too small, too tight, leaving bruise marks; it was just—I am looking for comfort, support and no marks, no bruises. I just want a really good night sleep with my bra on. That’s it.
Susan: What we are going to do is we are going to look at another type of bra for everyday and this is giving you support, light support. We are going to show you sleep bra that will give you even more support. We are going to give you a shape improvement and great support, so you do not have any sagging tissue.
Ruby: I am a D cup. I love it.
Susan: I know.
Lisa: And we have Ruby with us here and you have a problem a lot of women do with weight loss.
Susan: We think the average woman changes six times in her life, whether it is diet, hormones, exercise, birth control and of course, pregnancy is one of the biggest. But weight loss, if you think about 10% weight loss, generally it equals a cup size change. So, what we did was we look at getting her not only the right bra for everyday because when you’re standing vertically, of course, there is more stress than even horizontal. So, this will give her great shape, which you were looking for to because when you lose a little weight, sometimes the bust line does not look quite as important, right?
Lisa: We want to make sure you don’t have that droopish.
Ruby: Yeah, that droopish is like -- they’re tear drops.
Susan: You can see that she is not really sagging as much. Maybe because she is not as full but every woman will lose firmness with the number of these lifestyle changes that occur. So, weight lost of 80 pounds will generally be three caps, maybe two or three caps.
Lisa: That is a lot. Well congratulations on that.
Ruby: Thank you.
Lisa: You look fantastic.
Ruby: Thank you.
Lisa: That is fabulous.
Susan: It’s wonderful. You fit her first for an everyday bra to give her support for 14, 16 hours a day and then we looked to the great sleep bra that will actually have a little seam support but it won’t be like wearing a regular bra with an underwire and hooks, things that are demanding if you want to sleep and be comfy. So, this is giving great support. It actually holds the breast in place and it has a curve, like a little crossover like this, so it will really just holds them there. So, if you move side-to-side, your breast are not going to fall to the side that you are sleeping on or whatever and just keep them nice and firm.
