D+ Bralettes Galore, Part II: Due Lune

due lune
When Irena from Due Lune reached out to us and asked to maybe test her new bralettes created with bigger boobs in mind, we were rather  cautious – it’s better to have low expectations than to be disappointed, and we have seen a lot of poorly sewn products. In general though this might be the most known review of Polish interner, since it will be posted everytime someone says ‘bralettes are for B-cup boobs only’. We have found a product that not only supports the breasts, but also is as pretty and good quality when in A cup as it is in L cup. And you can also show it to people who say ‘it can’t be done’.
We chose to test Virgo and Terra – first one because of tricky halterneck-like cut, and the second one due to Magda’s big girl wish of having an actual strappy bralette. We waited. Then the bralettes came, we looked at them, and we saw that they were good.

My Virgo is a comfy lounging bra – after a few minutes it melts into my skin and I cannot feel it anymore, and the bounce is not hard enought to cause pain. I can safely go for a walk wearing Virgo, climb the stairs, the bralette does the job. Look y’all who claimed it ‘can’t be done’ 😉 what is really special here is the fact that the straps can be criss-crossed to give a little bit of extra support – though that can be done when you are slightly smaller than me (5’8”) or less angular, so to say, since if I did that I would be choked. The neck strappy element, when the straps are hooked in a traditional manner, is absolutely comfortable, does not dig in (which I feared), does not bother me, and when you wear a high-neck top it looks like a fashionable choker. Support is very good – I would say t is about 65-70% of what a good soft bra gives.

 

 



I have never worn a bralette all day without pain, collecting my boobs from beneath my belly, and without a feeling of breats getting 20 years older within seconds. Boobs have natural, rounded shape, a little lower than what a wired bra would give me. I like the effect, because under clothes my breasts look younger… yet unclothed. Yes, in this bralette the nipples are out and proud and visible even undear a jumper, but that is of course a person-specific phenomena 😉 If you look at the photo above you will see the roundness of my boobs is clearly visible in the cleavage area. This is an Eldorado for me, as such effect is only available for me with a ill-fitting bra, Deco Plunge, or an ungodly amount of push-up. I take half a heart for the boobs being a bit too far apart from each other for my taste, but that is a minimal issue.

Terra is the answer to my prayers and dreams. Irena, the owner of Due Lune, is my unquestionable idol and love of my life at the moment – she made my dream come true, a dream everybody is unattainable. It can be done. Look for yourself.

 

 

 
When it comes to comfort and quality… what can I say. Telling a story will be easiest, conceivably. Have you seen my Instagram pic in Terra? I wore that dress for my bartending shift – a lot of standing, walking, running with glassware. No pain, no discomfort, none of the ‘naked’ feeling.

 

Terra is a very skimpy bralette and shapes my bust well enough to make wearing dresses that I had to discard earlier possible; my other bras peeked out unaesthetically and Terra does not. Even when a bit of the bralette shows the effect is soft and subtle enough not to cause trouble.

 
Obviously a bra with no wiring save for side support pieces (strategically placed to prohibit the band from rolling up) can’t put boobs front and center like a traditional padded and wired bra. Boobs look natural, but better. And they are seductive, really seductive. The straps can be worn the usual way or criss-crossed; I am 5’7” and no trouble in sight with manipulating the straps (not even in Virgo – Agata is complaining because she has tall frame). I really recommend the bralette, especially for a masturdate. Or to the bar – just please make sure I am not there so we won’t wear the same thing simultaneously 😉

 

Given the occasion I would like to comment on a very important topic from the consumers perspective – humbleness of the creator. Everybody should be able to stand their ground and vouch for their product, but being able to accept feedback and looking for opportunities to further develop the product are both very, very important and are a testament to understand, how psychologically delicate is the lingerie industry and how easy it to make the client feel inadequate and ‘less than’ due to her size, like the aesthetic factor of the product is dependent on her measurements. Irena, the brains behind Due Lune, not only looked for an opportunity to expand her stock, but also accepted and understood the criticism we gave her as a challenge, not as an attack on her creation. And it works, given that the three of us (bloggers as beta-testers and Irena as the artist, brains, and seamstress) managed to develop wearable and functional bralette in sizes that make the most brands go ‘duh?’ or seems almost deviant. We recommend Due Lune from the bottom of our hearts!
