Plunge push-up bra in navy, by Gilly Hicks.

Gilly Hicks Caitlyn Plunge Push-Up, 32AA

Reviewed by: Erika
Age: 20s
Bra size: 32AAA

Overall rating: 4/5 stars Rating = 4 out of 5 stars


Gilly Hicks’ Caitlyn bra is a plunge push up bra made from 73% Nylon and 27% Elastane [Spandex].

The one I received was a plain, navy blue bra. It seems to be well-made.

The only thing I have a problem with is that the bottom of the inner edge of the cups flares out a bit, which looks a little awkward. It’s not noticeable under a shirt, so it’s not too much of a problem.

I’m not a fan of bras with tons of padding, so I was happy that the padding on this one was fairly minimal despite being a push up bra. There’s just enough to make my breasts look shapely and feminine.

I was excited to wear a bra that actually makes me look like I have breasts without looking ridiculously fake.

The cups are a little big on me, but I’m a AAA not a AA so that was to be expected (I can sometimes fit a AA if the cups run a little small, so I was kind of hoping this one might).

Other than that, the fit is great and it’s extremely comfortable. Definitely a bra I wouldn’t mind wearing every day.

  1. Very disappointed as i can’t seem to find any AA bras on GH’s site? Did they discontinue it? :( Thx.

    • They may have, unfortunately. I still have a couple of 32AA Logan bras from GH if you’re interested — this is a wire-free, lightly lined contour style. Let me know!
      Best,
      Amanda
