Jockey Custom Fit Bra Review
By Karen Sandoval CZT on August 14, 2013
When I got home from BlogHer'13, of course I had to try on the cups that we got from Jockey's new custom tailored fit bra. I'm always on the quest to find something comfortable to hold up the ladies.
I gasped at the retail price of $60 but Jockey gave us a 30 dollar off coupon. I figured what the heck I'll give it a try nothing seems to ever control these girls way they should. After going to BlogHer, I decided maybe I should start wearing foam cups, for modesty. Every single picture of me from Chicago, well you can see my nipples!
Fitting was super easy, I followed the instructions that came with the fitting kit, and got my size figured out quickly.
Three days after I placed my order, my package arrived from Jockey arrived. It wasn't what I expected , it came in a shoe box. And holy cow-38/9 is huge. My boobs are such a pain and finding a bra that works for more than a few hours without giving me a backache would be awesome.
I generally don't wear underwire bras because they poke me in the armpits. However, Nikki told me that may be because the underwire bras I've tried didn't fit properly. I have never worn padded bras because I don't need any help to make the gals look larger. Jockey custom fitting was intriguing and yes, they converted me.
First day, right out of the box, I wore it for two hours. I like how I looked in the Jockey Tailored Contour Bra. This is one great boulder holster! It perked my ladies right up. Gravity doesn't fail me in this bra, for sure.
So I wore it on the way to las Vegas. But of course I packed my other more "comfortable" bras as back up for when I would tire of the underwires. I never wore one of them. I spent the entire weekend wearing my new bra. It is so comfortable, I actually never felt the need to "get this thing off!". First time ever in an underwire Jockey, well done!
Now I have just a few suggestions:
My right side is a 9, but my left side is obviously an 8. Wouldn't it be lovely if we lopsided ladies could order two different cup sizes? I don't like the way the left side collapses because I don't quite fill it. But if I went with an 8, I'd spill out of the right side.
The other thing I don't like is the fact that it appears to need a shoebox for storage. This bra doesn't fold neatly into itself so it can be packed in a suitcase, or even put away in a drawer. But if Jockey took away any of the rigidity of the bra, it might not be as effective with the lift. Still, there needs to be a better way to pack it or put it away.
The last suggestion is the price: I would love to test all of the styles of the Jockey Tailored bra, but 60 dollars is far more than I'm willing to spend on a bra.
But all in all, the pros outweigh the cons. I like it! Thanks Jockey.
Jockey gave each attendant of BlogHer'13 a measuring kit and a coupon for 30 dollars off of their new product line of their custom fit bra. I wasn't compensated for this review, and all opinions are my own.
