Soma Enhancing Shape Bra Review + Giveaway!

in bra guide

For years I’ve been wearing the wrong bra size. I knew it too but I was either to poor or lazy at the time to do anything about it. Whenever I went bra shopping, the bra was either too large a band size or too small a cup size. My bras would also leave gaping at the top and I’m always adjusting the straps. So annoying.

Just when I started to believe I’d never find a good bra, I discovered Soma Enhancing Shape Bra, also known as “the ultimate age defying t-shirt bra.” It claims to eliminate gaps at the neckline with its top shaping pad technology. This bra sounded like the answer to my prayers so I headed over to the Soma boutique in Manhattan Beach to get a bra fitting and the experience was wonderful. The associate measured me and she gave me a few bras to try. I learned my true bra size that day- 38B.

So, I tried the bra on and I was completely shocked. I thought, “Wow, it feels fantastic! This bra is perfect.” I can’t recall the last time I felt this good about a bra. It flatters my shape and feels so comfortable even after I return home from work. I sometimes forget that it’s even on. The bra also lifts and supports my girls and when I’m laying on back, no gaps! I just love how it looks under my clothes whether I’m wearing a t-shirt, sweater or dress. Soma’s Enhancing Shape Bra is now part of my regular bra rotation.

See all the benefits of the Enhancing Shape Bra:

  • It’s age defying! Instantly restores natural shape
  • It enhances the shape of your bust instantly for a great fit under clothes
  • The top shaping pad technology eliminates gaps for a perfect fit
  • It’s completely smooth under clothes
  • It’s designed with padded straps for comfort
  • It comes in 8 solid colors and 4 beautiful patterns (Mochaccino is my fav!
  • It comes in 27 sizes in cups A-DDD

This bra is also featured in this month’s issue of InStyle as THE solution for filling the gap at the top of the cup. Here’s an excerpt – “If age or breast-feeding has left you less, shall we say, well-rounded, this bra will more than mind the gap(s). Instead of providing a simple push-up, it’s padded at the top to fill in what’s turned more concave.”


Since this bra has done wonders for me, I want to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy it. One lucky reader will have the chance to win a $60 gift card to purchase one. You can visit your nearest Soma boutique or order online.
