An experiment

Following a comment made by a helpful person which I read on egl recently, I wanted to test the theory that a 1950's style 'bullet' bra (like the one below) is the best type of fit for JSKs.


Photo from the What Katy Did website. Just to give you an idea of the type I mean.

The original commenter said that this type lifts your bust up to the point where it would be if it were smaller. It is also wire less, avoiding the pancake~like effect.

Me and Kyra set off to find What Katy Did in Portobello road, alas as it is rather prudishly considered 'adult' content by my browser, I cannot provide a link. They are quite a famous stockist of vintage style lingerie. It is tucked in a shopping centre next to the market itself.

The shopgirls were very helpful and friendly and the range of sizes was excellent. I picked up a peach silk one at the price of 29.50 GDP.

It looks pretty wierd and pointy when you put it on. But it really does the job. Excess boobage is not magically done away with, but the way they sit is far more flattering. Boob loaf is done away with and is replaced with two distinct breasts instead.

All in all, a success!

I have been wearing mine all day today (sorry..possibly TMI!) and I am amazed at how comfortable it is.

I didn't realise they were still sold in ordinary outlets, thanks I will check those out!
