Victoria's Secret Couch Cushions

Okay so, in the interest of really just profiting off of Victoria's Secret's ridiculously priced Bombshell push-up bra, I recently bought one in size 34A at a discount and plan to resell it. I paid $14 and this is gently used.



Bra review: is the Bombshell really worth the money?
Is this really worth $65 to look like something you're not?



It isn't going to fit me anyway as I am no longer a 34A, and it's too much padding for me, but if you want the appearance of two added cup sizes, I suppose this bra does do that.


But let's take a look at what this is really about. VS, in marketing these bras, is contributing to small-breasted women feeling like their bodies are not enough the way they are. I'm very torn between wanting to make these available at a lower price, and trying to convince you that you really don't need it.


Another thing, is that if the bra has gaps in the top of the cups on you (which styles like this often do for A cups), you're just going to have to wear something tight on top of it in order to squish it down against your breasts. What this means is that you're turning the add-2-cups bra into, effectively, a sports bra in appearance. Just something to think about.


If you want to buy this from me once it's listed, go right ahead. I'm not judging you. I remember what it was like to be so thin that I could only wear a 32AA and really did want something that would give me curves. So I do understand, but I would really encourage you to first make sure 34A really is your size, and second, check out alternatives to Victoria's Secret that will probably fit you much better.
