What Would I Do Without My Wonderbra? Like The Girl In the Advert I Cannot Cook Neither… But Who Cares!
Throughout the ages women have worn bras for a variety of purposes. Some women wear a bra out of modesty; other women do it to increase the size and projection of their bust while others wear a bra to reduce the size of their breasts and minimize its impact in their silhouette. Women who practice sports wear them to restrain breast movement during exercise. Older women with droopy or saggy breasts wear them to have a perkier and younger looking appearance. Young women with breasts just starting to show off wear a bra for decorative reasons or to enhance their cleavage.
Every woman has her own reasons to wear a bra or not to wear one. Nowadays, a bra is more than just merely support for a woman’s bust. A bra is a symbol of womanhood marketed to emphasize its ability to preserve a youthful appearance. That is why some feminist who consider the bra a symbol of repression of women’s bodies prefer to do without it.

For me, far from being a symbol of repression to my body, a bra is an item of clothing that has the property to make me feel pretty and powerful. From all the bras that I have tried, the Wonderbra is my favourite item of underwear. After all, how can I not feel pretty once I put on one of those wonderful fitting bras that make my breast look perkier and more exuberant?
I don’t always dress to impress a man; I like to dress sensual from the inside out for my own benefit. Feeling the soft fabrics caressing my body, catching a glimpse of my reflection in a mirror or a window shop make me feel like the woman I want to be and feel me with confidence for the entire day.
Wonderbra Styles :
There are 6 main styles of brassieres advertised in the Wonderbra official site, plus the new styles that come out every season sometimes only for special editions.
The main styles found in the wonderbra site are: the lace detail, the push up, the seamless, the gel, the maximizer, the strapless and the new models.
Wonderbra Lace detail:
This is a wonderbra with details in lace that make up for a sexy, sizzling and alluring bra. You can choose from having just a touch of lace to an all-over, all-out lace bra to match your mood and your style under anything. I find this style specially sensual to the touch.
To make sure your bra is kept in good condition hand wash it to avoid damaging the lace.
Wonderbra Forever Smooth Push-up
The Push up:
A self explanatory name; the push up pushes your breast up the way . Who doesn’t need a little push every once in a while? Feels right. Looks good.
A little extra lift, a little extra cleavage, a whole lot of what looks so hot under square necklines, scoop neck tops and tanks.
The Wonderbra Seamless push-up bra has smooth cups for a seamless silhouette under clothing. This is perfect to wear under white t-shirts and tightly fitting dresses. It is a bra that goes unnoticed under your clothes. The only difference is that you feel sexy, powerful, and in control.
Ultra-hot and fabulously uplifting.
This bra is for girls with medium to large breasts as it pushes your assets towards the centre, giving you a vertiginous cleavage. You know how it is when things just come together? You know, just to get things moving in the right direction? The Maximizer style gives an all-over enhancement for the ultimate in sexy
This is the perfect bra for those girls with small breast who dream about having a voluptuous one without having to go for plastic surgery. That is exactly what the gel wonderbra does, instead of undergoing surgery to put silicon implants in your breasts, now you can put the silicon gel bags in your brassiere and have the same effect. Who knew sexy could be so comfortable and so sensational! The revolutionary light gel pads add the natural shape and cleavage that make the difference between simply so-so, and oh, so hot!
The latest Wonderbra: Maximize your assets without the wire! Light gel cups push you up without pushing you out for a natural round shape. It's perfect !
This bra offers a deep plunge center push up for sexy shaping and thin foam lining graduated for the perfect pushup. The bra comes with straps for convertibility.
This is one of my favourite styles, every woman has a strapless bra in her wardrobe, but no everyone has a strapless wonderbra. This style perfectly holds your breast in place while giving you extra support and volume.

Whether you are wearing a Wonderbra or an ordinary bra, you should wear it correctly to make the most out of it. Always make sure that:
- The chest band is horizontal and it does not ride up the back.
- Your bra should feel firm but comfortable, should be able to breathe and move easily.
- The underwire part of your bra should not dig in to the chest or the breasts, rub or poke out at the front.
- The breasts should be enclosed by the cups and there should be a smooth line where the fabric at the top of the cup ends.
- Your nipple, must be in the centre of the cup.
- The breast should not bulge over the top or out the sides of the cups.
- The breasts should be supported primarily by the band around the rib cage, rather than by the shoulder straps.
- To put your bra on the correct way, slip the straps over your shoulders, hold both ends, lean forward and let your breasts fill the cups.
