We Tried a Bra: The 2-in-1 Bra for Your Trickiest Tops
When it comes to finding the right bra, we can all agree that it’s no easy feat. But things are changing thanks to more innovative technology and women-designed products. In that spirit, we’re taking on the challenge of finding the absolute best bra for your needs.
We’ve all been there: We slip on our favorite bra and prettiest top only to discover that our straps are showing in an undesirable fashion. With most bras, you have to get naked yet again and dig through your drawers in search of a racerback style to remedy the situation — until now. We’ve finally found the solution that will make your morning dressing that much easier.
The Aerie REAL Power Convertible Plunge Push Up Bra ($50) is luxuriously soft, has a lace plunge front, and features customized levels of push-up (it comes with pads, so you decide if you want a little extra volume or a lot). But the best detail of this bra, which ranges from 30A to 38DD, is the teeny tiny piece of metal (rose gold, of course) on the back strap called the J-Hook.
So what is a J-Hook exactly? It is every bra-wearers’ wish realized. The J-Hook comes attached to the back-strap and converts this regular looking bra into a cross back instantly. So if you want to switch your bra, like now, you could just reach back and do it. What, you say?! Oh, yes. And it’s about dang time.
The metal hook acts by attaching your two straps together right at the center of your back. Small but mighty, it offers a few amazing perks. First, your bra straps won’t show. Second, the straps will never slip off of your shoulders again (applaud here). Third, your girls will appear more perky since they are actually rounded inwards. Finally, when you’re done bra-wearing at the end of a long day, no more of that over the head B.S. You just unhook it like you would your standard bra and call it a night. Dream come true, are we right?
What kind of bra do you need? We want to hear about it on Facebook!
