Lingerie Lundi!

Usually I use Lingerie Lundi to showcase pretty, whimsicle, expressly sexy, hand made or high fashion pieces, focusing on fashion rather than the function.  This week I am going to review my own favorite bras, ones who's sole purpose is not aesthetic - bras for bras sake.

At the beginning of the summer, after realizing that had been years since I had bought a real quality bra myself, and that all of my favorites were literally falling apart, I spent a little time at Victoria's Secret.  Usually I buy lingerie because it is pretty, flirty, or $10 at H&M, but I have come to the conclusion that it is really worth it to spend a little more on a quality bra, from a store who's business is focused on that, which is comfortable, durable, and looks and feels good under clothes.  I'm not generally a Vicky Sec's enthusiast, but I am really happy with what I found, and, at the store I shopped (Bay Street, Emeryville, for the local folk) I was met with some really great, helpful customer service in the fitting room.

Obviously every body is different and everyone has different needs of a bra, but these are the three that I bought, and have been loving and living in for the past few months:

lots of "Contour" for the un-contoured set such as myslef, comfortable and comes in a great shade of nude for the light skinned demo, optimal under a white top.
dream angels® Push-up Bra

cute, sporty, super light and great fit.  I have it in a cranberry color which I really like.
Victoria's Secret Pink®, Push-up Bra with Lace

a good strapless bra is hard to find, and this is, without a doubt the BEST strapless bra I have ever worn or tried; excellent worn as a racer back as well.
Body by Victoria®, Multi-way Bra

There you have it, my personal picks.  Any one else have recommendations for great, functional bras?
