As we whip ourselves into frenzies trying to find the perfect costume, we often forget the real life challenges and snafus that the people who design and make our costumes can face in the production process.
As a result of all this bra talk, I got a very unexpected comment from Ms. Sexy who is a carnival costume designer/producer.
Ms. Sexy spoke about bras having some type of padding or lining in the cups, because classic type bras are very hard to decorate since they have no shape. She went on to say how she had to decorate a bra for larger breasted masquerader while the masquerade wore the bra, to give the bra some shape.
It is things like this that I would have never given a second thought. Therefore, I asked Ms. Sexy if she could offer any more tips to us "Well Blessed In The Chest" ladies who may choose to send our own bras.
This is the advice she offered.
Molded or padded bras is a must.
Smooth fabric (no lace, mesh, or bows)
Switching the straps to create a racer back helps some bras (not all), to give a little extra cleavage.
Always make sure that the bra fits and is not too small because sometimes the cup size will shrink after being decorated.
These are good tips to keep in mind, and good pointers to discuss with the mas camp when inquiring about sending your own bra.
Thank you Ms. Sexy!
Until next time. Stay Sexy!!
