I’ve been looking for the perfect swing dance bra for a long time and I believe I have finally found one that at least appears to be competent. For the athleticism of swing dancing you need the support of a sports bra with the profile of a bra that will fit seamlessly under dresses or blouses.
After sampling the wares at Victoria’s Secret and Target, I have made my way through the offerings at One Hanes Place, which offers bras by Bali, Playtex, Hanes, Wonderbra, Barely There, and Champion. The winner is Bali Concealers Minimizer Underwire bra. Here are the specs from the website:
– Enjoy the comfort of a tag-free bra.
– Smooth design helps bra disappear under clothes.
– Concealing petals on inside cups help prevent show through.
– Comes in black, sand, and white
– Sizes 34C to 44DDD
One of the things I noticed while test-driving this model that is particularly helpful for dancing is that the straps are partially nylon and the adjustable part of the strap in the back is elastic/spandex. Most bras I encounter are elastic/spandex throughout the strap, which creates too much give when you pulse. The half nylon strap keeps things more firmly in place. The coverage of the cups allows for security without sacrificing a lower neckline.
I did not post a photo of this bra because I didn’t really want that kind of content on the blog; however, the news of this bra should be shared (with a hint of modesty).
