O's Bra Intervention

Before: "I don't like a lot of bra," says Gayle, but she does appreciate comfort and support, and her lacy Parisian number simply doesn't deliver. Its wide-set straps and cut make her look as if she has "nothing in front," Susan says, and because of decreased elasticity in her breasts (a.k.a. sag), there's no volume in the upper part of the cup.
After: "This is a very soothing bra, physically and emotionally—it makes me feel young and sexy and cared for," Gayle says. The narrower space between the cups and smaller band size (32C rather than 34C) keep the bra centered on her body, so her breasts seem "more important," as Susan puts it. "It adds shape but doesn't make her look excessively busty."
