‘Support’ System

You may recall that last week, I complained about never receiving my free Barely There ‘invisible look’ (www.barelythere.com) bra (an inviting offer that was included within the Kenneth Cole large nylon totes given out to registered members of the press during the recent New York Fashion Week).

When I called to place my order, I was given a choice of 4 styles and 4 colors, and was told I’d receive the bra within a few weeks. When that didn’t happen, I followed up but was unsuccessful in reaching someone in the PR department. I was subsequently contacted and given an apology, saying the bra had been sent to my apartment but for some reason, it was sent back.

Well, just yesterday, I not only received the one I originally ordered (a nude underwire), but two extras (a black criss cross strap underwire and a nude strapless with detachable straps). I immediately tried them on and I’m happy to report that my quick impression is that the bras are as “seamless, soft, lightweight, and incredibly smooth” as advertised, feel great against the skin, extremely comfortable and not binding.

Of course, having said that, only time will tell exactly how ‘uplifting’ an experience these undergarments will be.
