I have been wearing Decent Exposures unbras for honestly 25 years. Before that I went braless for several years. I found the hardware and seams of bras way too uncomfortable, and I was a hippy chick who just didnt care.
I am looking to transition to having more 'real' bras in my closet, and was not considering buying another bra from Decent Exposures, but someone posted about this bra-shirt. I had been having trouble finding a shirt to do yoga in when it got cold - everything sporty was a tank top, and everything warm fell over my face when I went upside down.
So I bought this lovely thing! This is a 30F with straps cut 2 inches short, custom sleeves, 12 inch bodice, 41 inch hip, 1.5 inch wide looper. (it also says looper cut at 4.5, but I dont know that that is something I specified?)
Now, I still own 3 older lined lycra Decent Exposure bras, 2 in a 30E and one in a 30F. The 30F is loose and the 30Es fit like compression bras, which I like. The bottom band actually flips up and acts like a support band. Decent Exposures says you can wear the same size in Velour and Lined Lycra, but I ordered this in my bigger size - its clearly still a bit small. Keep in mind, I wear a 32J in Panache bras. These sizes are very different.
I included 2 front pictures so you can see that you can actually slide the fabric back and forth through the looper, to adjust which breast gets more fabric. Obviously, there's still not enough to go around. The weird, badly done yoga shot is to show that THIS WORKS!! The shirt doesnt fall down on to my face and the hem stays on my hips! This is exactly why I wanted this shirt and it works!
I will keep this even tho I really could go up a cup size. It might stretch, I might lose weight, and it just doesnt bother me - esp since I mostly plan to use it to do yoga in my own bedroom (not the bathroom, I promise - the lighting was just better in there). I told dh that other reviewers said they would wear it out as a shirt. He said he thought I could do that. I said sure, if I wasnt spilling out of it - hubby just gave me an impish grin. He really likes this - you never know what will float the guys' boats!
Completely comfortable, I love the bright color, functions exactly as I wanted it to, and dh likes it. I'm happy!
