“ Brand: Avon / Type: Underwear - Bra „
I saw this bra originally in the Avon book but decided against buying one; I had many bras and didn't really need another one. Recently I have been on the hunt for another bra and although I do not usually buy underwear off the internet, I saw this on eBay and just had to get one. I got one black and one white one, they were £10 each which is a reasonable price for a bra.
The bra itself is an ordinary three clip bra, nothing amazing really, under wired and with removable straps. It is slightly padded but not enough to give you added cleavage or any fuller chest area. The good part about this is the added clip parts along the inside of the bra, these are all around the inside which allow you to move the straps to suit whatever item of clothing you are wearing. You can remove them altogether and go for strapless or just use one or use both but in non-symmetrical ways. Although the idea is total genius, the practical doesn't quite live up to what it could be, because you can take the straps off, if you have done this a lot, the loops can stretch a little which allows the straps to come away, whenever they want to, rather than whenever you want them too. The bra itself has lasted the test of time and is still in good condition, the straps and loops however not so well. The loops have stretched and a couple have broken. The stitching has given up too, it still works as strapless bras though. Both the black and white bra colours are good and the black hasn't faded at all.
It is still a good idea and I would say if you don't intend to change it regularly, it's a very good bra indeed. For regular changing, be ready for it to let you down a bit.
Ladies, this could be the new thing and a bra handy to us all. I got bought this for Christmas last year because I always seem to get loads of underwear for Christmas. This was ordered from the catalogue and at the time this was £12. In my opinion £12 is an acceptable amount to pay for a decent bra that you want to last a substitutional amount of time. As far as I am aware this is no longer in either the catalogue or the Avon website but you may be able to buy this through other websites and you can more than likely find a couple of these on Ebay by now.
This bra comes in regular sizes, the same ones as the other bra sizes, I don't think they offer this in any doubles however so may be a problem for some people to get this in their size. I bought this in a 34D. This was at Christmas 2011 I have since then lost weight and gone down to a C however wearing the bra since then anyway this still fits comfortably despite the drop in a size. The concept of this bra is that you can wear it with anything to any occasion because it will fit with any of your items of clothing, it can achieve this by you being able to remove the straps and move them around the bra to put the straps at a more convenient place.
Holding this bra at first the material is a matte silky soft material (not sure what material) It is smooth and easy to run your fingers over. The cups themselves are padded but not by more than you would expect so this is a standard bra that offers no extra support except for the wiring. This is fine because reading the description it never said anything about extra padding or any up lifting effects. This has 3 different clip settings to do up the bra which is pretty standard really.
How can this go so many ways you say? Holding out the bra undone and laid flat looking along the top of the bra There are slits in the bra top wide enough to get a bra strap clip into and this is repeated one after another from strap to bra then to the other strap again. All the way along. So putting this bra on strapless is way number 1 to have this bra. You then simple slot the straps in whichever holes you feel is necessary for your outfit of the day.
*For me one of the advantages of this is that it is black and this also came in white. The idea of this bra is for it not to be seen that you are wearing one. Most of my clothing is black so it helps to have a plain black bra with plain black straps.
*An obvious advantage is that the straps move around the bra, this is basically limitless. I've never had an item of clothing that I can't conceal the straps if necessary.
*The bra straps adjust quite a bit more than normal ones as well. I have these on the shortest strap just because I'm small and it gives you a bit of an uplift as well.
*This sizing of this is nice and fits perfect, even when my breast have gotten a little smaller this still fits nice like before.
*The back strap is quite large and doesn't cut into you at the smallest setting like some cheap bra's do.
*Because the straps are designed to come out of the holes easily to move around I find that I always pull the straps out of place especially when putting the bra on, then going to put the straps on and them coming off.Making this very frustrating at times.
*It's very difficult to accurately line the straps up straight with each other, Mine are never straight and it is quite uncomfortable at times.
*After a couple of months worth of washes around the top of the bra starts to bobble and I've never seen a bra do this before.
*When you have a strap in one hole for a long period of time for example a month or so, the hole will start to stretch and then start to fray.
*After the bobbling and the fraying of the holes this looks quite tatty and you have to trim bits away.
