Victoria’s Secret Incredible Bra Is Aptly Named

Since I gave birth in August, I have been rotating five sad-looking nursing bras. For a while now, I’ve been meaning to upgrade to more sexy support systems. But as most new mothers know, there’s not a lot of free time those first few months – and when you do get some downtime, you take a nap.

But last week, I decided enough was enough. It was high time my undergarments made me feel like a woman again, rather than a milk maid. So I made a sojourn to Victoria’s Secret to get outfitted for a ultra-feminine bra.

The first thing I did upon entering the land of lingerie was flag down a helpful salesperson and asked to be fitted. Pre-pregnancy, I was barely a 34B – but her tape measure revealed that, post-pregnancy, I am now a 36D!!!

I told the saleswoman that I was in search of a bra that would give the girls some serious lift (post-baby, gravity is not your friend). I also mentioned how frustrated I have become with my nursing bras and the fact that they look lumpy under my form-fitting tops. So she introduced me to Victoria’s Secret Incredible Bra and selected a few styles to try on.

In the dressing room, I discovered that the Incredible Bra is aptly named. It’s moniker isn’t just a clever marketing ploy. It was as if Victoria’s Secret read my mind and created a bra just for me. So I snagged the Incredible Demi Bra (for everyday) and the Incredible Front-Close Push Up Bra (for dramatic, Jessica Rabbit-esque décolletage). So what’s so incredible about these bras? Lemme break it down:

The bras have a cushioned underwire doesn’t dig, bind or pinch. Both styles I purchased are front-close, which makes it, literally, a snap for me to nurse my constantly hungry baby boy. Last, but definitely not least, both bras feature self-adjusting straps that fit perfectly every time. I don’t know about you – but this was the ultimate selling point for me…my bra straps stay slippin’ and it drives me insane. The Incredible Bra is also available in a wide range of shades and pattens, which is a nice change from the pedestrian palette of most nursing bras.

I am beyond pleased with my new bras. Visit your local Victoria’s Secret store, try one on for size, and it’ll be incredible if you leave the store empty-handed.

NARS Opens Its First Flagship Boutique!

Since launching his eponymous brand sixteen years ago, François Nars had dreams of opening a namesake boutique. After years of searching for the quintessential site, he found the perfect location in the West Village and turned to Fabien Baron to help bring his vision to life. 

The NARS boutique will officially open its doors at 413 Bleecker Street in NYC on February 10, 2011!

By now you’ve probably seen the above12-lipstick “logo treatment” in ad campaigns in and around New York City. “NARS 413 BLKR” was conceptualized with Fabien’s team at Baron & Baron and the shortened street name boasts an insiders’ vibe with a cheeky nod to the neighborhood. Jungle Red Lipstick, one of the first 12 lipsticks that launched NARS Cosmetics, provides the black-and-white logo with a bold pop of color, a color scheme that will also be seen within the boutique.

More details will be revealed soon on the NARS Facebook page.
