Disclosure: I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Vanity Fair. I received product samples to facilitate my review and compensation to thank me for my participation.
A few months ago I told you about my NYC Macy’s shopping trip. I was able to pick out a Vanity Fair bra that I’ve since fallen in love with. One of the perks of being a Vanity Fair Ambassador is getting the privilege of testing out new products. This month we were sent the Full Coverage Illumination Underwire Bra and I couldn’t wait to share my thoughts on it with you.
After wearing the wrong bra for so many years, it’s nice to receive a bra and it fit my body perfectly. The “Illumination” is now the fourth Vanity Fair collection I’ve worn and every one has molded to me instantly. With other brands, I found one collection fit better than the other but with Vanity Fair their sizes are the same across the board so I can order with confidence knowing no matter which collection I want to try, it will fit me right.
So why try other collections? What makes the Illumination different than the Body Caress I previously reviewed?
My closet is a mix of casual wear and dressy but mostly casual. I like my T-Shirts, okay. Vanity Fair’s Illumination Underwire Collection is definitely ideal for my everyday wear and is practically hidden under my form fitting Ts. It’s seamless and smooth underneath all of the types of clothing I have and still comfortable. Nothing worse than bra you have to loosen just so it doesn’t hug your body while wearing a tight shirt. No need to loosen the back band at all with this one!
Vanity Fair believes a woman’s lingerie is the foundation of her outfit, so it’s important she wear a bra that fits well in order to best highlight her body’s shape. A well-fitting bra helps provide a smooth silhouette, giving her support exactly where she needs it. The molded cups in Illumination allow for natural fit and comfort while the convertible straps allow for outfit flexibility.
I only wear underwire bras so the Illumination has been great for me. It comes in a large variety of sizes starting from 34B to 44DD. The beautiful strata fabric is new to me as my other bras have never had this type of fabric. I love the smooth look and feel of it with contrasting silky fabric lining the side and back wings. As you see above, the inside of the back wings are lined a silky interior to provide superior comfort.
Illumination doesn’t just stop at bras, though, Vanity Fair’s Illumination collection extends to panties too. You can choose from string bikini, brief, high cut, hipster, and even gorgeous lace options. They each provide the comfortable strata fabric with silky trim along waist and legs.
The Illumination is a nice addition to my undergarment drawer. I definitely think I need to add more to my collection because I’ll be reaching for this one first from now on.
The undergarments we choose act as the very foundation of looking – and feeling – our best. The designers at Vanity Fair brands are always scouting emerging trends and styles to help inspire confidence and support from the inside out.
