The View: Double Divas Review

The View: Livi Rae Review
These best friends are the co-owners of the Atlanta area lingerie shop Livi Rae. They agreed that women need help finding the right bra.
Cynthia Richards said that she has been in the business since age 19, and she has seen how wearing the right bra can change a woman’s life. It improves your posture and your attitude.
The View: Livi Rae Custom Bras
Molly Hopkins is referred to as “the saint" on the show, and viewers know that customers are often a little too eager to spill their secrets during their bra fittings.
One customer, Norma, had to have a bra custom made. Richards is the innovator who comes up with new twists on the garment to fit the needs of individual women.
The View: Bra Fitting Techniques
The ladies shared some advice for proper bra fitting techniques. Since the cleavage can travel in all directions, it is important to push it forward with your bra.
You do not want to push the cleavage down onto the breast tissue, which can cause calcification. To prevent spillage, the ladies recommended a seamless smooth cup.
Sometimes “the ugly duckling makes you the swan," and a bra doesn’t have to look pretty to get the job done.
The View: T-Shirt Style Bra Reviews
After having a breast reduction, one viewer had what the Double Divas call “the double boob effect." Here again, they used a T-shirt style bra to provide full coverage and bring the chest together. Finding the right size for you is the key to a great custom fit.
The View: Bra Size Questions
Do you know your bra size? Many women do not, and the ladies helped her learn that your breasts should not be down by your elbows. However, the breast line should hit midway between the shoulder and elbow.
Finding the right size or getting a fitting can help you change your posture and feel more comfortable.
Their final advice was to rotate among 7 to 10 bras. Don’t wear the same one each day. You can see more of their makeovers on Lifetime’s Double Divas.
