Ode To Le Mystere



If you are easily offended by under garments, then turn away now. Yesterday at the Midwest Horse Fair, we bumped into The Bra Lady's sister, a very nice woman and a bit of character who attempted to shuffle us into the expo building yet one more time to check out her sister's booth of bras and yes Mrs.Mom they sold Enell as previously discussed in her post Ode To Enell. But I'm not a sports bra person. I like to lift and separate, so to speak. She also sold these nice Le Mystere bras, Oprah's favorite, so I've read. Can I just say, "Talk about a comfortable, shaping, piece of cement!" Steve forced me to get measured and try one on. Part of the process which I must admit was a bit embarrassing was to put a little smiley face sticker on, er, where your nipples were currently located on your blouse with your old bra on and then try on the Le Mystere, put your blouse back on and come out of the make shift dressing room (to all people milling about) and show all exactly wear they were and where they should be. Talk about an amazing foundation garment. Now I don't spend cheaply on bras, most of mine are from Victoria Secret and they don't do a bad job, but this is as Steve and Tom would say, "the dog's bullocks!". My girls are safely tucked away without an iota of jiggle. They aren't going anywhere and they are where they once were, oh say about 15 years ago. I bought one and will more than likely buy more. So if your looking for the equivalent of the Enell sports bra in a lift and seperate model, this is the one.


This is for you, Mrs.Mom, Le Mystere .

OK Callie girl, wheres the link to them? ANY boulder holder is worth a thorough investigation IMO! ;)

This one sounds pretty darn nice, and I would be interested to see if they too offer a Gargantuan size like Enell does for UberBoobers....

Ok, Forgot about a link to Le Mystere, will add that now!

Mrs Mom said...

Thanks Callie! GUESS WHAT!! THEY HAVE A STORE HERE!!!!!!! Its all of 13 miles away from me too- now how Kewl is THAT already? Its worth going in to get a sizing and take a look. These sure are pretty- and having pretty AND support- even when NOT on a horse, has never been an option for me. Wow- can not imagine Pretty, supported, AND that close to home. Hmmm....

I'll let ya know how it all works out ;)

Oh Dude-- TOOO much here... my security word here this time:
mbBRASa
HA~

I'm tellin' ya, it's amazing. The model I have is Renaissance/Dream Tisha#9955. Next one I'll look at is the underwire cami. A little midline shaping is always a plus, but I can't stand the stretchy elastic nylon things. This looks satiny and smooth. Won't squish my boobs. LOL

Smilie faces??? I would die.

I almost nearly posted about my new $60 bra that I never would have purchased if it weren't for Mrs. Mom :) Yes, Enel. Not the prettiest, and unfortunately my stomach is far more noticeable because my chest for the first time ever is flat (kinda!) Actually, it's not pretty at all.

So, Callie, does this new one minimize at the same time it lifts and separates? I think City Boy would like to see a little separation...he's tired of the uniboob look :)

Callie said...

Tracey, It keeps them pretty packed in as it seperates, I guess it sort of minimizes but still looks as if you have a figure. No uniboob!

I'm afraid to even go down this road. The smiley faces were enough for me to turn around and make a detour.

Callie said...

Mikael, It was a titch humiliating, but I'm always able to crack a joke and all were laughing. You should have seen this one woman's eyes bug out as I stepped out of the dressing room smiley faces and all.LOL

LOL, yeah, good thing I have a sence of humor and past the age of true embarassment.
