The End of My Jiggly Juggs: An Ode to Vanity Fair / by Erin Baynham

My Old Bras in the Trash

As a blogger, I am often sent products for review, and I also purchase and test my own. There have only been a couple of occasions when a free product made me loyal to the brand.This is one of them.

I have a dear friend, Meagan, who absolutely cringes when she sees my lack of support (trust me, she tells me all the time). I’m aware that I needed improvement. I’ve been on the hunt for better bras for a couple of years now. I’d buy the so-called supportive bras that had larger cups, but no strap support. Some of those bras would be so thin that the slightest breeze caused “hardnippleitis."

By the way, I’m absolutely obsessed with Christina Hendricks in Mad Men. She was a curvy girl with a full rack, but managed to keep them up and perky. I knew she wasn’t doing the average things. I asked Kathryn Finney, and she said they might be using duct tape. I also asked The Lingerie Addict, and she explained that bra shapes were different back then. All in all, I just want my breasts to be sky high and to defy gravity.

I tried the Vanity Fair® Advanced Support Underwire Bra and, oh my gosh. Do you know how many bras were supposed to give me this look, and they didn’t? Do you know that I’ve spent well over $50 for designer bras that look sexy, but provide nothing? I wore the Vanity Fair® Look Lifted Underwire Bra one today, and my breasts are sky high. My mother saw me and said “Wow, even your posture has changed.” I look leaner, and less sloppy. I literally stop by mirrors all the time just to notice the difference. Believe me, there’s definitely a difference.

As far as panties go, I stopped wearing so many thongs and switched to larger, more appropriate panties. I tried out the Illumination® Hi-Cut Panty under a dress one day, and the Illumination® String Bikini under jeans. These aren’t the cutest panties I’ve ever worn, but they are virtually undetectable. They’re totally comfortable and there isn’t a panty line in sight.

All is well, folks. One of my biggest fashion conundrums has been settled. My clothes look better on me, and I look better to myself. I can make you a promise. By the end of the year, my everyday lingerie collection will consist of plenty of Vanity Fair® bras and panties. Plenty.
