Didn't fit

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!

    If Mama'z happy, EVERYBODY's happy!! : )

  • Oh wow, that is a SUPER cute top! I am really surprised you wear 30E and 30F in their bras, though. I *think* you and I are pretty close to the same size, and I have a Decent Exposures Un-Bra in 30J with some alterations (shorter straps, straps closer in the back, 1.5" looper attached, etc.) I bought it when I was larger (32JJ/34J), but it still fits well for lounging/sleeping even though it's a bit too big in the cups now. Mine is more full-coverage and doesn't give the awesome cleavage like yours, though. ;) I plan to order another one soon, but I'd most likely order 30I or 30H.

    But, if you are happy with yours, then don't mind me! I just thought it was interesting you ordered a much smaller size than I did.

    Decent Exposures Un-Bra:

  • I know, I still think its weird too, actually. I mean, this is obviously too small - but I prefer wearing their bras tight enough to be compression bras, rather than just boob covers.

    I meant to load up pics of my old bras from them, but they are so worn - and the lycra ones really do stretch. I think I bought my three current bras when I was smaller.

    If I were to buy another, I would go up a cup - but I always ordered smaller than the recommendations. Not for the cleavage, but for better support. Esp with the stretchier ones, you can still squeeze in but they hold you tighter. But I guess that was actually why I stopped wearing the velour - because it doesnt work that way. If you get them so they fit, I didnt like the lack of support. Very saggy boobs here!

  • Ah, I guess that makes sense then if you're wanting it to fit very tightly like a compression bra. My bra is made of Lined Dri-Release fabric, and while it wasn't super tight, it still provided a great deal of support (not as much now since it's a bit big on me.) I only wanted it for lounging and sleeping though, so I certainly didn't need (or want) support/tightness equal to a sports bra or regular bra.

  • I wore nothing but Decent Exposure bras for about 25 years, usually owning one too-small sexy bra, or one too-small-but-looks-ok-under-a-fancy-dress bra. That was the only thing I wore day in, day out. So I had to make the most of it. When the boobs are down to the belly button, nothing fits right

  • Just realized I AM wearing the same size in lined lycra TODAY - much fuller coverage.

    oops . shrank a bit in the wash. i've always dried these bras on very low heat . . . i guess i should have hung it to dry. i'll still wear it in my room for yoga though - it is inspirational
