An Open Letter to Cacique

Dear Cacique,

I never thought I'd say this, but I am in love.

I used to wear your bras a couple of years back, but they were not without their problems (including the price!).

Recently, Lane Bryant was having a killer bra sale and, not one to pass up a good deal and having recently heard rave reviews about them, I went in to try some on.

I grabbed a couple of these and made for a dressing room.

The first thing I found out was that there was no way it was going to work if I used my normal cup size - so I went up a cup and tried again. The fit was great and they looked awesome, so I took four home with me.

I didn't, however, really have any idea about how awesome they were until I wore one "for reals" the next day.

All I can say is: OMG.

I have literally never worn a more comfortable bra.


Which is saying a lot for a bra that's filled with padding, underwires, and definitely does not sport full coverage.

I did not find myself sagging out under the underwire. There was no binding, pinching, inappropriate underwire poking or "quad boobs"*. I did not feel like I was wearing a modified bodice or device of torture. The straps didn't dig into my shoulders or sag off of them.

Other than what it was doing for my cleavage, I felt, quite literally, like I wasn't even wearing a bra.

Cacique, if you had any idea of the bra issues I have had, and the ways in which I have cursed and given up on the bra industry in the past, you may understand how miraculous it feels to find a bra that is as awesome as this plunge thing of yours.

I am so glad I decided to throw caution and prior experience to the wind and try on a bra style that has never worked for me in the past.

I am so glad that you are taking support garments for fat women so seriously that you have created a bra as fabulous as this.

I am even willing to pay full price for a bra this awesome (not that I did, but that's maybe a story for another time). And, Cacique, that is saying something.

Much Love,

*When your tits "bubble" out of the top of a bra as a noticeably divided section - making it look like you have four boobs. And, no, Urban Dictionary, it is not a good look.

Four bras for $54, after tax? That's less than I was paying for Playtex Wirefree bras! I saved $103 - now that's some awesome shopping!

Very nice. You are going to send it to both Lane Bryant and Cacique people, right? They need to know when they do something good.

I used to shop there in high school. The store dissapeared in the North East. I thought it want out of business.
