As you know, my company, Campbell & Kate, hosted Bras & Brunch at its pop up shop last Saturday, and Eveden contributed some gorgeous samples for attendees to check out.
One that you don’t see in the photo above is the Fantasie Rebecca Lace.
At first glance, the Rebecca lace looks like your typical seamless T-shirt bra, except it has lace along the wings, straps and bridge. In ivory, it’s almost bridal, but it didn’t strike me as very special when I unpacked it. Basically, it seemed like a nice concession to our less adventurous guests.
Velaire Elliot and Jennifer Baker, the two co-founders of My Bra Concierge (more about their start up on our blog soon), had an entirely different reaction. They immediately recognized what was so special about the Rebecca Lace: it has a back-smoothing lace panel. Here’s what that detail looked like in a UK 32E on one of our visitors.
Whether the lace panel is powerful enough to offer true back smoothing remains to be seen, but it’s a nice idea and makes for a pretty back view.
The shape of the Rebecca isn’t for me, and it didn’t win Leah over either when she compared it to the Fantasie 4510. However, it turns out that this bra is Jennifer Baker’s favorite! She says:
The Rebecca has been a life changing bra for me since it’s one of the first properly fitting bras I was able wear at 30GG. I prefer slight padding, and this bra does the trick. I also love the soft fabric and the slightly fuller coverage provided. The underwire is comfortable, and I get no rubbing from the side support panels like in many other bras, so this is my go-to for an everyday t-shirt bra. Having slightly more breast tissue on top, I find this bra suits my shape very well. I’ve recommended it to many friends, and it appears to fit many shapes and sizes well. But, for ladies who have more projected tissue or more narrow roots (liking Polish brands), you might look elsewhere! I’m looking forward to trying the Rebecca Lace in my size soon!
How about you, readers? Who’s a Rebecca fan, and who has a different go-to seamless bra and why?
Finally, it was wonderful to have Shari Deutsch from The Strap Saver with us as well.
Spring break and swim season are upon us, so I must highlight the reason that co-founder Beth Lieberman started the company. As a super petite woman, Beth could never find a swimsuit with short enough straps. The Strap Saver solves that problem! If you’ve run into this problem, this is a great solution.
