La Senza Triple Gel Bra
I really never thought I'd find myself reviewing a bra, or even talking about my boobs here on Dooyoo, but never say never because here I am! I would normally never review a bra because a bra review can essentially be quite useless, but this bra claims to add an extra 2 cup sizes to the appearance of your boobs and make it look natural, so I felt this might be of some use to you small breasted ladies like myself!
I recently lost some weight and as usual, it came off of my boobs first leaving me with a B cup. Having suffered from Body Dysmorphic Disorder for almost half of my life (although I'm currently in a very good position and can almost say I'm recovered), this just added another insecurity to fret over. I'd always been the kind of person to want plastic surgery to fix any of my problems, but after talking it over with my boyfriend, we realised that even after plastic surgery, I probably wouldn't be happy so I started looking into other options. The cheapest and most practical option for a bigger chest was to get a 'boob job bra' as my best friend and I like to call them. Off to La Senza we go!
After trying the bra on for size, I purchased 3. One in the pillar box red colour shown in the image above, one in a dark raspberry colour (named dark fuchsia, although it isn't fuchsia at all in my opinion) and one in black. I probably should've held back a bit as I didn't know how these bras would hold up, how the quality would be or if they would even be comfortable for a long period of time, but I lucked out!
The bra looks just like the image above, so I won't go into too much detail (partially because the bra itself doesn't exactly have much detail!) but I want to mention the cups. The lower half of the cup is generously padded in such a way that you have to position your own boobs on top of the padding. This means that instead of your boob filling the whole cup, it is only in half of the cup which will obviously boost the size and give you a lovely cleavage too. The name is slightly misleading though, as this is not a gel bra at all, there is no gel whatsoever in the padding - it feels more like a spongy, foamy material.
This bra is very comfortable, and I've recently added another two of them to my collection. I find myself wearing them all day without thinking twice (you ladies know how uncomfortable certain bras can be!). The illusion of a bigger bust is very natural looking, but if someone cops a feel then they will certainly get a handful of padding, so you won't be fooling them! The fit is perfect too, I'm a bit of a La Senza junkie when it comes to my bras so I can't give you any reference on how the sizing compares to other companies, but if you're a 34B in one La Senza bra, then you'll be a 34B in this too. Not many people know this, but the centre of your bra should be right up against your sternum, if you have a gap in between your sternum and your bra then your bra is ill fitting and you should find another size.
The hook on the bra is nothing exciting, it simply has 3 double hook settings like most bras do. I find these very easy to hook and unhook and my boyfriend can even get them unhooked with one hand and without me noticing!
I've now had these bras for a few months and have washed them multiple times with no issues. The padding has stayed as full as it was when I first bought them and the shape is still perfect. Some people recommend you hand wash your bras, but I simply throw them in a bra wash bag and pop it in the washing machine then leave them to air dry. This will help the bra maintain it's shape.
I'd say these bras are perfect if you're looking to just fill out a top or a dress a bit more, or at least give the illusion of having a bigger bust, but obviously when you take it off you will be left with your original cup size, so don't try and fool anyone that may have a chance at removing your bra ;).
Does the bra give you an added 2 cup sizes? I'd say so, yes. I'd maybe even say that it looks as if I've added 3 cup sizes! This has sparked some rumours among old friends of mine, and now everyone is talking about how natural my fake boobs look, so why don't you head down to La Senza and get the cheapest boob job you'll ever find?
Available from La Senza for £25 in black, white, nude, red, deep fuchsia, blue, purple and pink zebra stripes. Blue and purple are on sale for £12.50 at the moment, and deep fuchsia is currently part of the Bra Busters deal (2 bras for £20 online). They come in a variety of sizes and have matching underwear to go with them if you're interested.
- temporarily boosts your cup size by 2-3 sizes
- looks natural
- cheap (compared to the £6000 breast augmentation or £1500 boob injection)
- fantastic quality
- only a temporary fix to what I feel may be a permanent problem
I've given this bra 5 Dooyoo stars because it really has boosted my confidence and my bust. Nothing to complain about here!
Thank you for reading! Sorry to go on about my boobs for so long!
