I am not usually enticed by As Seen On TV merchandise. However, I was drawn in every time I caught the “Ahh” Bra infomercial.
I was in Kmart and stumbled upon an entire section of As Seen On TV merchandise, which included the Ahh Bra AND the Genie Bra. For me, two choices are too many. It took me twenty minutes before I made a decision to go home with the Genie Bra. I based my decision on getting two Genie bras for the price of one Ahh Bra. The two colors in the Genie Bra box were black and nude. Sold.
When I returned home, I immediately went to try on the Genie Bra and said, “Wow!” The Genie Bra felt SO good and it had wonderful support. I am a natural 34DD and it takes quiet a bit of support to hoist my girls up to a classy position.
I recently visited Victoria’s Secret to try on bras. The price for one bra is ridiculous. However, the Victoria’s Secret bras make my boobs look paid for and that is impressive. One bra was so pretty I wished it were a bikini top; all I needed was some makeup to powder over the stretch marks and Vah VOOM.
To say the Victoria’s Secret bras were comfortable would be an overstatement; I usually select underwire. I have a Victoria’s Secret bra that I nicknamed my “in yo’ face” bra because I felt like my boobs were right under my chin. In addition to that everywhere I went, I felt eye contact meets boobs.
Once the newness wore off on the pretty Victoria’s Secret bra, I no longer felt like doing the whole hand washing routine. So I threw my bra in the wash with some other so-called delicates and of course the bra was never the same. My “in yo’ face” boobs were slightly off kilter again; their natural state.
One day I was in Walgreens for some – I would like to sound purposeful and say medicine but I went in there for candy. In Walgreens I found a whole section of As Seen On TV merchandise, which also included a selection of Ahh Bras. I said, “Why not?” It was military discount day, so I would get the bra for 20% off.
I went home and took off my Genie Bra to try on the Ahh Bra. To say it felt good would be an understatement. It felt marvelous!! But let me tell you the difference, because the difference is significant. I had to put my Genie Bra back on in order to leave the house.
My Ahh Bra is now nicknamed my pajama bra; and I love it for just that. I do not feel cute walking around in my pajamas with boobs dangling and one hanging lower than the other. The Ahh Bra has just enough support to level my boobs in pajamas and it is also comfortable enough to sleep in. The Ahh Bra is not a work or church bra. Let’s just say your bounce would be everybody’s business.
The Genie bra has padding. No amount of chill or desire is going to show through this bra. It is perfect for work, church and errands in between. In my opinion the Genie Bra is cute, but its not sexy like my in yo’ face bra. I can tell you that my husband does not like the “hard ” padded Genie Bra. Due to lack of padding, he loves the Ahh Bra. Go figure.
I saved the best for last. You can throw the Genie and Ahh bras in the wash with anything from car towels to grass stained knee jeans, and they will come out like they went in. Okay, I’m exaggerating. I never tried that. I still wash them nicely but they get tossed around with everyday clothes, not so-called delicates.
The Genie Bra is now my everyday bra and the Ahh Bra is my pajama bra. The in yo’ face bra will be for special Vah Vah Voom occasions.
Here’s the thing… the definition of “so-called delicates”: Articles of clothing that you wash gently and hang to air dry; you do not want them to shrink because they are all you have to wear that fits.
I am all in for 100% comfort.
