Recently I was approached by Vanity Fair to review a bra from its new spring line. I chose the Beautiful Embrace underwire bra for its elegant floral detailing on the sides. Normally I wear wireless bras because I don’t like the feeling of the wire digging into my body. What I did not realize I was missing out on was the extra support, especially on the sides. With a bit of strap adjustment, the Beautiful Embrace bra fit perfectly and provided the right amount of lift I needed for a formal dress.
My only concern is that Vanity Fair does not provide sizing for those who need a 32 band size. But if you are looking for full figure coverage, Vanity Fair bras are pretty, comfortable and offer great support not only from the bottom, but the sides too.
I also learned a bit about the company, which has been around since 1919. Just check out some of these fabulous vintage ads for lingerie from Vanity Fair. I love admiring how fashions have changed throughout the decades, and you can get a good idea about lingerie trends here.
