The Fabulous Bra launched in stores as a DEMI, PUSH-UP, and MULTI-WAY!
It is the launch of the season, and will last about one month long. I tried on all three styles in the fitting room to prepare for the launch. I have a different opinion than I did last year because each of the three styles is different from each other, and they each fit me differently.
Overall, the Fabulous bra has new fabrics, foils, embellishments, and lace slings and is available in a wider size range than earlier. The three pleats, placement of the cream padding, and center charm remain the same. The strap is wider at the top of the shoulder, so adjusting the strap can be more difficult than with other bras — that is an intentional design.
All styles of the Fabulous are touted as having a lightweight cream, with the advantage of your body temperature causing the cream to move to fit your shape. The cream itself may be light, but the cups of the Fabulous are heavy, including the Demi style.
As with the last time, the 32 band seemed too small. I had our bra specialist measure me to see if I was in the proper size bra. I ended up wearing a different size for the different styles.
The Fabulous Demi bra. This is a new bra. The Demi is lightly padded evenly on the cup. It’s almost a balconet with the flat neckline. The wire on the Demi bra cup cut into my sides and rises very high at the center gore. Other associates agreed that the cup seemed too high for comfort. I tried the sized I measured at and the sister size. I thought it might be the bra for me.
The Fabulous Push-Up bra. Last year, one associate believed that she looked very round in the push-up, like a Shape 4. When I tried on a 32B, I saw the same effect. The Fabulous Push-up is recommended for Shapes 1 and 3. Although I am a Shape 3, I felt that it was not flattering on me. I looked better in the Demi. With it’s “normal” length underwire and cream padding, offers extreme lift.
The Fabulous Multi-Way. The Fabulous Multi-Way is another new bra in the line. The cups on the Multi-Way 32B were too small. I tried on the 34A after I had the bra specialist add her opinion on sizing, with the band as tight as it could go. Pretty odd, since I usually go for smaller sizes in the multi-way for extra security — I don’t want my strapless bra to move up or down on me. Once I tried on the 34A, I was that it was the proper size for my body, and this was the bra for me. The cups are not nearly as tall and the underwire is shorter than the other two styles above. The no-slip edge on the band was especially secure feeling, which I loved. As one manager said, multi-ways can leave wiggle room when you’re smaller, but not this one. Just like the Fabulous Push-Up, you are pushed in and up for a moderate amount of lift.
