If you happen to be my dad, My Guy, or one of my three other male readers, it might be in your best interest to skip this article. Not that there will be anything inappropriate here, but do you really want to know about this?
A few years ago one of my classy mom friends mentioned that she only wore the Genie Bra these days. I thought, Well, that’s nice, but I’ll stick with Victoria’s Secret. After all, I need all the help I can get.
But when a girl is fighting to lose the baby weight (and the other weight; let’s be honest here), that’s a time she also needs all the help she can get.
Help disguising back fat.
Help with changing cup sizes.
Heck, help with those times you just don’t feel like changing for bed but don’t want to deal with underwire.
In October of last year, I decided to take the plunge (no pun intended) and give the Genie Bra a try. It didn’t hurt that Boscov was having a sale and the three pack was $15. Yup, you read that right–$5 apiece. I’m still shaking my head, and it’s January.
If you’ve ever tried to put a sports bra on after a shower, that’s what you’ll feel like putting on the Genie Bra. But let me tell you: that will be the worst thing you experience. After that life just gets rosy. And did I mention that you don’t have to fiddle with adjustments during the day? Once you’re in, you’re in.
There were days in my distant past (read: sometime before October) when I’d be sitting on the floor playing in the Little Butt’s room and I’d happen to glance at my reflection in his mirror. The bra-line chub I saw spilling around my back and shoulders made me gag. I vowed to trash every top that made me look that way. Then, upon realizing that I looked like that in every single shirt I owned, I vowed not to look at my back.
With the Genie Bra, those days are long gone. Sure, if I wear a form-fitting top there might be a line of demarcation, but no unsightly lumps or bumps. That fact alone sold me.
Do you have those tops where the neckline is a little low and you’ve got to wear a cami? Me too. But adding another layer can be brutal when you run hot like me. So when I discovered the Genie Bra Milana, which doubles as a lace-topped cami…it was a good day. A very good day.
I’m a girl slightly lacking in patience, so when I decided to try the Genie Bra, I had to try it that day. But if you’re a bit stronger than me, you can always order from Amazon. The sizing chart on the package has proven accurate, at least in my case, so it seems like a safe item to order without trying on.
If you’re looking for a little enhancement help in the size department, the Genie Bra will not provide that. However, you can order their Magic Boost Pads directly from the company. Or, if you happen to have some generic ones lying around in your lingerie drawer, I’ve found that those work just as well.
At this point, I’m not sure what the life expectancy of a Genie Bra is, but at $5-10 a pop who really cares? You can’t go wrong at those prices.
What’s your favorite bra? Have you given the Genie Bra a try?
