Wacoal has been selling dependable, albeit basic bras for years. Their bras are like the workhorses of your lingerie wardrobe. They recently started their “young and sexy” line called b.tempt’d. It’s only carried by Macy’s in my area. Or you can always order from their website.
I tried on their La Parisienne Push Up bra. It’s a very cute balconette bra with pink lace textured cups and black polka dot on the straps.
The bra is true to size. Though I’m a 32DD, I typically wear size 32DDD for Victoria’s Secret bras. For Wacoal and b'tempt’d, 32DD fits me perfectly. Second it has removable insets to give you extra lifts if you want. Third, at $38, it’s much cheaper than VS bras of similar qualities and embellishments. It’s priced as everyday bras but it’s cute enough for date nights. The only downside is that the matching panties are somewhat too expensive at $20 each. I bought one just to get a matching set, but pair it with cheaper pink panties.
For girls who want something cute and sexy, it’s a great alternative to VS bra.
