Fab Flash: Bras for the Breast Enhanced!

For the first time, a patented bra made for women with surgically enhanced breasts has arrived. According to the makers of the Le Mystere No 9 bra range, the rise of "fake look" implants has caused breasts to be too round and too high for conventional bras.

Conventional bras are designed with conical-shaped cups and oval-shaped underwire, while augmented breasts tend to be rounder and fuller on top, with a wider cleavage. The No 9 bras are available at Bare Necessities for $76-$79.

I'd be curious to know if these No 9 bras are actually more comfortable! Or if anyone has had an augmentation, I would love to know about your experience with bras post-surgery - do they actually not fit as well? Do tell!

I don't know about the no 9 bra, but I think that a bra that is meant for augmented women should have a deeper plunge, and there should be at least one in the line that does not have an underwire. A lot of times I wear a shelf bra instead of a bra because it looks like a cami and gives me better cleavage, but it doesn't work in low cut shirts. I can go without a bra but then there is the nipple issue when it's cold.

I had no idea that this was a problem for enhanced women. May be they will look more "natural" with a properly fitting bra (I can only assume that most women who get implants don't want them to look fake).

I wonder if these will fit well for the larger boobied women to. Its horrible that I personally can never find a sexy bra in my size. Since so many people get big big fake boobies I will have to check out and see what there size goes up to.

as someone who has recently gotten implants and has yet to be formally fitted for a bra, this sounds great! i will certainly try these bras out...there is a place called intimacy in atlanta that is THE SPOT for ladies who don't wear a 32A, 34 BCD...it is where i am headed first, but i will keep this new line of bras in mind. i do know this~victoria's has NOTHING that fits me correctly and has such a limited selection in their bras. i am always on the lookout for something pretty, sexy, and comfortable...

I haven't had an augementation, but I totally understand the pain of having to try to find a new bra. My favorite busted a wire last week and Calvin Klein doesn't make that exact style any more. And VS "revamped" my other favs so now they are not as great :( What am I going to do?

I have augmented breasts, and this is right on the money. Regular bras are not wide enough. The cups are not shaped correctly and it is difficult to find the right fit.

I'm wondering how this would fit for those of us with naturally larger busts. Most bras for fuller busts are horrible, they make the twins look like torpedos.

not that i'm all for breast augmentation, but from a business standpoint, this is a GREAT idea! talk about your niche markets...this will be very popular in L.A. i'm sure!
