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 must try this D: Not that I have much boobage, but they sometimes look mashed down with the tighter JSKs I have.

Hehe mashed is a good way to describe it.

I have some larger Meta JSKs, which should fit me perfectly and I still have boob crush problem. I think it's the way they are cut.

The difference is is really quite amazing, I have a IW red set that I hadn't worn because it looked so squashed and the bra makes it look so much better!

I am not sure if What Katy Did ship abroad, let me know if you need a hand. You did such a good job with my parasol before (plus I will be able to get more free catalogues from them...)
