Gossard Superboost - A Review

Review of Gossard Superboost Bra

After loving the Gossard Beau Plunge very much, I decided to branch out and try some other Gossard bras. Gossard makes the well reviewed Superboost, and I thought it would be a good thing to try. Here it is on the model:

As you can see, it looks like a very pretty bra on the model. Let's see how it holds up to the fit test:

Band size: It is a 30 band and it actually feels like a true 30 band. The Beau Plunge was super tight but this one seems to fit true to size.

Cup size: The 30D bra's cups fit true to size.

Cup Shape: This bra is better than most. It has slightly broad wires and the projection is slightly-moderately shallow. In fact, this is the best breadth and projection combo for me. It is great if you are neither FOT nor FOB and have tall roots.

Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: Good. The gore is low as it is a plunge bra. It has good cup separation for my far-apart spaced breasts

Verdict: This should have been a 100% good bra. However, I just find that it doesn't look pretty on me! Even though the fit was absolutely perfect, it has NO push-up! The push-up is only in cup sizes A-C, regardless of band size. I personally feel that they should have included push-up in 30D and 30DD  because people who wear those sizes have smaller-than-average breasts and often want a push-up. They should have made it a push-up in 30A-DD, 32A-D, 34A-C, 36A-B, and 38A. Despite this bra fitting perfectly, I shall have to sell it because it did not meet my aesthetic expectations.

Bust Friendly Clothing! Pinup Couture at Pinup Girl Clothing!

I don't have a large bust but I know that many of you readers are looking for great clothing items suited for (relatively) larger busts and (relatively) smaller waists. I was feeling in the mood for pinup and rockabilly clothing so I went to Pinup Girl Clothing and bought the Pinup Couture Heidi Dress in Purple Floral Print. My bra size is 28DD or 30D and I had to wear an "Add-2-cups" push-up bra in order to fit into the XS size that I bought. The bra brought me up to the same volume as a person who would wear 28F and there was still space for an increase of one more cup size. This means that the XS dress could fit someone with a bra size of 28FF or 30E. Without further ado, here are photos of me wearing the dress:

I looked around the site and found these other lovely pieces:

While these dresses are lovely, most clothing at Pinup Girl Clothing is in the three-digit price range. However, if those prices are cool with you, I wish you happy shopping!

Wedding and Bridal Lingerie!

Weddings are a super important event in most peoples lives. It's something that you only do once (hopefully) and most brides are highly concerned about looking their best on that special day. As many women like to wear strapless and low back dresses, it is not so easy to find a bra that will go well under your wedding dress. There are a ton of ill-fitting strapless bras out there, and there are some number of low-back bras out there, but it is super hard to find both in bridal white. It is even harder to find ones that come in non-matrix sizes. Here I have found a good one from one of my favorite brands: the Betsey Johnson Forever Perfect Bustier. Best of all, it comes in your choice of White or Nude*** and it's only $46 at!

***I wish Betsey Johnson and other designers/retailers would stop using this racist term. Not everybody has this skin color and it's just plain discriminatory.
