O's Bra Intervention

Before: Although Debra once had implants and often uses gel inserts in her bras, she's become quite comfortable in her own skin ("There's nothing artificial about me"). Still, she wouldn't mind "a fuller look," and this bra gives her no support or definition.
After: "Small-busted women like to be small busted," Susan says. "We want to give her enough volume to make her clothes fit better yet not change her sense of self." A side bump panel on this padded push-up bra moves breast tissue toward the center and gives Debra a rounded, natural shape. "I feel more womanly in this bra," she says, "and it's nice and clean looking—I don't like dressy-dressy stuff."
