Sorry, been busy with school!
All of the swimsuits I own (except for one) are vintage actually, I haven't found repros that have that bullet bra shape I like and I've been collecting vintage since before I was a teenager! haha
If someone could point me in the direction of repros with the bullet shape I would be eternally grateful because I'd love to be able to swim in my swimwear ;)
Here's two bullet bra swimsuits I found while looking around :) Sorry for the delay in reply.
I have looked at her shop! She makes awesome stuff :) And offers custom sizing, which is always a plus when you've got my measurements.
I also love bullet bras. I like to wear them especially with my vintage dresses. Bullets just help give that extra "shot" of vintage. I have not found them as useful in dresses/blouses in which there is lots of cleavage exposure. The bra then usually gets the exposure and not "the girls". But when I wear one of my open bottom girdles, with seemed hose and a bullet bra I just feel so much more pin-up-y. And when you feel it inside, those around you are guaranteed to get that feeling from you!
An extra "Shot"!! I love that Aoife ;) You actually bring up an interesting choice. As a pinup which is more ideal for the retro vintage look in a dress or a top, a lot of cleavage or cone shaped bust? I'll have to think about that but I guess it really depends on the dress or the top in question.
Can anyone recommend a bullet bra for someone with rounder breasts? I was really excited to try on a WKD bullet bra when I visited the Trashy Diva store in New Orleans, but even after trying on 4 different sizes, I couldn't find one that worked for me. I'm not especially busty, and the cups were either far too tight or completely empty at the tips (like, a couple of inches of space between my nipples and the tip of the cups). Is that just how bullet bras are, or is there another brand that might work better for me?
You may want to go to the What Katie Did website and then go to the board. Pose your question directly to Katie. She responds to all questions.
Do you think she's likely to recommend different brands? I'd just love to get some unbiased opinions if anyone here has tried anything other than WKD.
Katie, often recommends different companies if she does not have something that someone is asking for. But I do think that she will first try to get you figured out in something WKD.
I guess I'll have to give it a try, thanks.
