Women who are less endowed need not to have surgery, neither take pills but only need to buy a Wonderbra. The Wonderbra is designed for the not so gifted ladies who are faced with the challenges of finding the right bra that will give them the lift and the illusion of having bigger breasts.

 

The Wonderbra’s cups have three components that lifts the breasts up and closer together, thereby creating a look of bigger breasts and sexy cleavage.

2. Removable pads are included which helps boost the breasts.
3. Gate Back and Rigid Straps. These provide support and enhance cleavage

 

The collaboration of the Wonderbra’s components gives every woman its maximum benefits/wonders. The four wonders of wonderbra are:

 

Uplift Effect. The Wonderbra is designed to raise the bust and an attention-grabber. It looks great with square neckline tops since it has detachable straps.

 

The Round Effect.

This is perfect to project a full and rounded bust form which emanates sexiness and femininity. The secret is in its unique padding which gives sufficient reinforcement to create the rounded look combined with semi-cup coverage and a wide set of straps.

 

Plunging Effect.

This is especially designed to go well with low necklines and low cut tops. The secret lies in minimum coverage to create the illusion of maximum bust form.

Bras 101

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

There is nothing more valuable to your appearance than wearing a proper bra. A Bra has the power to completely alter an outfit, so let us consider Bra Basics.

1. Be aware of your bra size. A woman should be aware of her correct bra size taking into consideration the bust measurement and rib measurement.

 

2. Get measured for a bra at least twice per year by a professional bra fitter.

 

3. Check your bra size regularly. Wearing a bra is not just a matter of appropriateness it’s a necessity. After babies, a little weight gain and general aging, your breasts are simply not what they used to be.

 

4. Show the right amount of cleavage. The right amount of cleavage is sexy. What’s not sexy is when too much breast tissue billows out of the top making it seem like you’re wearing a bra that’s three sizes too small.

 

5. Match bra style and design with your outfit. If you’re wearing a halter top or an evening dress with off the shoulder sleeves, you’ll need a corresponding bra so that the only focus is on that fabulous ensemble you’re wearing.

 

6. Take care of your bra. Hand wash your bra and avoid putting it in the washing machine and dryer. This will definitely destroy your bra.

 

7. Do not wear the same bra every day. Rotate your bras every day to extend the life of the bra

 

8. Bra straps should be fixed, yet comfortable. Always go for a bra with strap adjustability. No matter what your needs are, straps should remain stable and should be made of non-intrusive materials that can harm your shoulders.

 

9. Wash unpacked bras before wearing them. Remember that people do try on the garments before purchasing.

 

10. Choose the right bra, regardless of style, that is comfortable

A Solution for Women with Small Breasts – Maximizer Bras

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

Maximizer bras give the illusion of fullness even to the most flat chested of women. They can create fantastic “eye catching” cleavage not normally associated with A and B cup bras.

A Maximizer Bra is a good investment for small chested women
, but even if you've got a little something up top, a maximizer bra is still a good addition to your wardrobe. Maximizer Bras push the breast up for cleavage and can also create the illusion of you being one cup size larger than you really are.

Most Maximizer Bra styles offer full coverage on the sides of the cup so that the breasts are pushed together and up over a 3/4-cup that leaves ample space for cleavage. Maximizer Bras usually use a combination of underwire support with sewn-in cotton padding along the bottom of the cup to increase the volume of your breasts. Maximizer Bras with water or silicon inserts have also been introduced in the market. Liquid pads can be more comfortable than cotton and can give your breasts a little more of a natural bounce

Maximizer bras are available from Triumph and Wacoal among other brands in the Philippines but they can also be purchased online

If you haven’t tried one, you should try a Maximize Bra now and you’ll discover the fabulous cleavage that you have been missing.

How To Measure Your Bra Size

Friday, August 12, 2011

Did you know that 80% of women wear the wrong bra size?
Did you know that your bra size fluctuates over time?


So many of our customers get confused about how to measure their bra size and even when we first started in this business we were not sure ourselve but after reading this simple tutorial you'll find it easy to know how to measure you bra size!

Below is a simple guide on how to measure your bra size correctly. We suggest you do this once a year to make sure your bras are the correct size. You can measure your bra size yourself or you can ask a friend to help you. It’s okay to measure your bra size whilst wearing an unpadded bra but to ensure better accuracy it’s best not to be wearing a bra.

Firstly, you will need a tape measure.



Band Size

To find your band size, place the measuring tape directly beneath your breasts and measure around your rib cage. Make sure the measuring tape is snug fitting but not so tight that its pinching your skin. We are measuring in inches so if you get a fraction in the measurement you can round the number down, for example 32.5 would become 32.

Now you must add 5 inches to the measurement to get the correct band measurement, for example 32 + 5 = 37 so the measurement would be 37. All band sizes are even numbers so you would normally round up to the next even number which in this case is 38.



Under Bust Measurement + 5 inches = Band Size


Cup Size

Measure around your body at the point where your bust are the fullest. Make sure the tape measure isn’t tight when you are doing this as otherwise your cup will be too tight. For demonstration purposes we’ll say its 39inches. Now subtract your band size from your bust size (39–37 = 2). This number determines your cup size which is generally referred to by a letter.

1 inch = A cup
2 inches = B cup
3 inches = C cup
4 inches = D cup
5 inches = DD cup
And so on…

In this demonstration the bra size would be 38B.



It’s easy to measure your bra size so make sure you measure you bra size at least once every year and you’ll feel more comfortable wearing bras that are the correct size.

Maximizer Bras do basically what the name says and maximize the size of your breasts. Maximizer Bras normally have underwired  ¾ cups so the Maximizer Bra can have added padding within the lower part of the cup that pushes your breasts up creating a wonderful cleavage. The Maximizer Bra will also have light padding within the upper part of the cup too which gives the impression of you being almost one cup size larger.



Because our main market is the Asian market we find that many Asian women love Maximizer Bras because the Maximize Bras we stock create lovely cleavage and make small breasted women look larger than they normally are.

BRA STORE - Minimizer Bras

Sunday, November 07, 2010

Minimizer bras tend to be more for larger cup sizes, as they are designed to make the breasts look up to 2 inches smaller than normal. The minimizer bra also helps to prevent ‘spill over’ and ‘gaping button’ syndrome in shirts and blouses. It should also help to give a more flattering and smoother look to the bust for when you want to wear tight tops without the size of your breasts being the main feature. Sometimes even with the right sized bra there can be a few lumps and bumps from the breasts and this is when a minimizer bra comes in.

These bras can be worn with day and evening wear and can give a smoother look around the bust area under clothing. The minimizer bra helps to reduce the size of the breasts and give added support for larger sizes. As larger sizes may hang more with age they need the extra support and uplift. 


Below is an example of what a maximizer bra looks like.
