A better bralette?
by Heather Elizabeth
Being October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, there’s been lots of focus on breast health. After reading numerous articles about bras and under wires, I decided to go out out and buy a new Coobie wireless bralette.
I thought I’d probably have to find one online. But last weekend I was walking through a clothing and home decor store in Rockland, when there suddenly in front of me was a whole display of Coobie bras in every color imaginable. They have three styles: a basic, a lace edge, and a wider strap, all with removable pads. I stood there for a while debating which color to get. I settled on the basic black as I had already been shopping all morning, and getting starving hungry. I noticed a small sign next to the display that said they also sold replacement pads for two dollars. I paid eighteen dollars for the bra, and left to find food.
What do I think of Coobie’s? It provides enough support for me (34B) with the pads. It’s made of 88% nylon and 12% lycra. Probably, the most telling sign is that I haven’t worn another bra since getting it. Bottom line..if it’s a little healthier, looks good, is supportive, and comfortable, I’m happy with it.
