For some reason, the petite padded T-back bra from Wacoal is not listed on their company website. I really hope it isn’t being discontinued, because I only have two of this style and I wear them all the time. They’ve already lasted several years, but at some point I expect I will need replacements. This is my ideal bra, an intimate essential as important as a great pair of undies: simple and streamlined — I don’t like a lot of fussy details, little bows and other such nonsense — but still beautiful… and somehow really comfortable. I even wrote an Amazon review of my beloved Wacoal #75317.
If you’re a size AA or even an A cup, you may have noticed (as I have) that the “support” issue doesn’t really apply to you. I have no idea what it feels like to have a big old pair of bouncy, floppy, heavy, damn sexy breasts that require harnessing. To me, a bra is mostly about nipple coverage. Wires and hooks are generally a real pain in my skinny ribcage… so when I find an exception, something with pads and contouring and a convenient front clasp — in other words, the sort of thing a real woman with curves might wear — it’s a pretty itty bitty big deal.
