Have you ever seen a lacy bralette at a store, held it up to the light, and thought, "This will work! Let me try it on!" With a heart full of optimism, you proceed to the fitting room with colorful lace in hand until you realize something very important: a piece of flimsy material will offer absolutely no support for your D cups. HOWEVER! There is a glimmer of hope for those of us who struggle to find comfortable undergarments.

What is it: LIVELY is an online shop that specializes in affordable lingerie, and it carries a product specifically made for girls whose breast friends are a D cup. The "Busty Bralette" is designed with strong straps and an under-the-boob elastic band for added support. Plus, mesh detailing and a super soft material make for some serious comfort.

Prices and sizing: It costs $35 for one, but there's a special promo that allows you to purchase two for $55. The size 1 fits a 34D, 32DD, 36D, 34DD, and 32DDD, and the size 2 fits a 38D, 36DD, 34DDD, 38DD, 36DDD, and 38DDD.

I decided to try out the size 1 (I usually wear a 34DD) to see if it follows through on its promise of magic and joy.


And guess what? The Busty Bralette is what Ms. McGuire is referencing when she sings "What Dreams Are Made Of."

Despite applying and reapplying my SPF 900, I still managed to get burnt to a crisp last week while at the beach. And of course, burns hurt — so the idea of putting something other than Aloe Vera on my skin (ex. a tight-fitting bra) seemed like torture. But like the wise Rihanna once said, you really can find love in a hopeless place... and I did. The material of the busty bralette was so soft that it didn't chafe or irritate my burnt skin at all.

It basically looks like I'm wearing my favorite t-shirt bra, except I don't want to rip it off after .5 seconds of wear.

Unlike most of the I'm-comfy-I-swear undergarments I've tried in the past, this one actually gives the kind of push-up I get when wearing my favorite t-shirt bra: not too much, but just enough. The straps are adjustable and there's a back-hook closure, meaning it's easy to adjust the tightness of the band. The plunge style and thin straps also ensure that the bralette won't be visible to the world when wearing a V-neck shirt. Basically, this bralette is perfect for all occasions: going out, sleeping, watching Harry Potter Freeform marathons, etc.

The bralette launched back in March — and sold out within 24 hours. But it's back now, baby!


Starting Sunday, July 16th, it'll be available in two ~classic~ colors (jet black and soft pink) as well as in the new lush life print (pictured above). Fingers crossed that the line will eventually expand to include even more sizes!

Now, not to be rude... but goodbye. I have to stock up on these magical boob holders by the dozen.
