After my last session with Tokyo Bust, I have been looking around for lingerie that provides better support so the massaging sessions that I have gone through and the bust serum which I am currently using will be properly maintained through my daily lingerie wear.
I am very thankful to be able to work with Jocelyn from ForHer.sg
and she has helped greatly in getting me the correct lingerie for my uses.
I have heard countless advices on wearing the correct bra. But honestly, how would you know whether you are wearing the right bra?
Well-endowed women wear bras for support and they would feel pain and discomfort without wearing them, possibly due to the weight. Then, let’s think about women with small-medium bust size. They would most likely be very used to wearing bras to boost the size and would feel uncomfortable without them – which I would attribute it is more of a psychological factor. Through time, the result of wearing bras, ill-fitting or not, would result in the female being completely oblivious to any discomfort from bras. Such consequences which I have learnt from TBE causes the “4 breasts” syndrome and also nips heading down south. Thankful I don’t have the latter but I was a victim to the “4 breasts” :(
I for one, have been wearing strapless bras since I started hooking up my first Triumph bra. My strapless bras are of double buckle with underwire. I came to learn that the consequence of wearing such bras day in and out for years gave me the “4 breasts” which the collagen and fats are pushed all the way up near my underarm – it is extremely visible when I wear cut-in sleeveless racer tops or tube tops and I was oblivious to it until I was made known to it. The consultant from TBE advised me on changing my bras and I have gone searching for new lingerie from then.
This is one of my many strapless bras from Triumph.
All my lingerie have only 2 buckles which I admit tends to slip throughout the day :( No doubt I love the design and how “mini” the entire bra looked, but it gives extremely bad support which resulted in “4 breasts” syndrome.
With my strapless bras which do not gives any extra lift to my bust, I was unable to achieve a perky bust look unless I wear bras which gives good support and with straps. Took a frontal photo of myself wearing ForHer.sg’s
baby blue bra underneath VGY’s Peplum’s Top in White and I am pleasantly surprised to see such a flattering image geesh :x
I also got this racy red lace overlay 3/4 cup bra which have three buckles and provide extremely good support. It gives the extra push and I have been wearing these two new bras pretty often!
At the time when I was doing this shoot, the baby blue bra was in the washing and I was not able to take it out for a shoot on my comfy bed.
I am a fan of laces and everything soft and pretty so I chose this red lace overlay bustier. I thought it would suit me well as I have many wine red/bright red outfits.
The thick 3 buckle bra gives good support – the importance which was reiterated to me during my TBE session.
also provide bras with 4 hooks which acts like a bustier. It sounds pretty tempting to me as I love wearing bustiers if you realize my collections in VGY often has them! ;)
The thick strap holds my bust in place well such that it does not move around with rigorous actions.
If you worry the sides will be too thick for your liking, that is what I thought so too until I wore them and felt extreme comfort in it. It is not stuffy as well as the fabric is pretty airy! Took a side photo of myself wearing the baby blue piece and it is really not that thick or big if it appears so in my photos :)
To be honest, it was my first time wearing lingerie with straps thicker than what I would usually wear. It was a new experience for me as I never worn 3/4 cup bras, bras with three hook and bras with thicker straps. I now look at these bras in a new light!
If you have already started wearing these bras, please continue to do so as it tucks in your bust properly and shapes them well!
If you have NOT started wearing such bras, you can start doing so as long-term wearing of ill fitting bras like my strapless ones will result in many ugly and visible consequences!
I personally feel wearing lingerie with cups closer to each other gives the extra push and corrects the structure of my bust.
Remember I mentioned in my TBE post about the consultant whom I envied? She was also wearing a bra similar to this and it gave her bust a great lift. I was surprised at the comfort of such bras offers as I am used to wearing bra cups with slight distance. It is actually pretty comfortable and gives me confidence in my clothes :*)
I am also a fan of seamless panties. 1 seamless panty at Triumph often sets me back at $26.90 which is pretty steep considering I get 2-3 pairs a month at a single go. You would probably be curious why I need to buy 3 pairs a month. This is because at every wear every wash, the seamless panty will just get looser. At the end of 8-10 washes, the panty will be extremely loose and I have no confidence in wearing them anymore.
However, this seamless panty also from ForHer.sg
have wowed me in terms of its comfort, and most importantly, its stretchability after wash
. I have been wearing it for 3 times now and it still has extremely good stretch with sufficient tightness in its fabric. It conforms to my shape and it feels like I am wearing nothing!
Unlike many seamless panties which have uncomfortable hems at the base, this pair of panties have soft cottony fabric sewn onto the base to provide comfort and a good airy environment to prevent bacterial infections known to occur to ladies who often wear panties which are too tight, uncomfortable and not airy.
If you are interested in shopping for new lingerie this brand new year, look no further as I highly recommend ForHer.sg’s for your lingerie purchases! I used to think the more expensive my lingerie is, the better support my bust will be given and I cannot go wrong in them. But I can’t be more wrong :(
ForHer.sg offers a wide range of lingerie such as bodyshaper, seamless shaper girdles which will be great for tucking in those tummies under bodycon dresses after your festive dinners! ;) I personally own one from La Senza which I wear under bodycon dresses and it is crazy expensive at $120. They also have innerslips for sheer dresses which I recommendeded to a couple of my VGY customers and also intimate accessories for bareback outfits, swimwear and nightwear.
ForHer.sg offers a loyalty program to reward customers (just like Triumph!). I love such loyalty programs as I often buy lingerie and the points accumulation which can be translated into shopping credits made me a loyal customer.
Every $5 spent gives you $1 shopping credit. If you only have $1 shopping credit in your account, you can turn it into $0.20 to offset your next purchase immediately without any minimum purchase! :)
Jocelyn is really nice to give discounts to my customers and readers! Thank you dear!
Quote <tricia20> to enjoy 20% off purchases and no minimum purchase is required.
Last of all, Merry Christmas to all my dear readers! I have something special for a few of my readers and I will be posting it up in my next post! ;) Stay tuned and may happiness and kindness always stay in your hearts!

Saturday, December 22, 2012 :: Maybelline Color Tattoo Flea x Multifolds
Marched off to the Maybelline flea event at SCAPE with my trusted angel last weekend. So we lugged down the new collection for a preview at the event. The packing that goes into a flea is insane because I am always optimistic and bring down ALOT of items.
VGY’s latest manufactured design. I’av always loved florals, lace, and everything sweet, soft and elegant so I made this dress a cut above the usual lace cheongsams. So in love with this piece I kept Mauve and Red for CNY!
The peplum tops sold well because the photos online don’t do justice to the beautiful floral prints. It was so pretty up on the rack! And I brought down the last few pieces of Amelia Laser Cut Peplum skirt because it was SUCH a seller at the previous Maybelline event at Zouk.
The orange looks crazily stunning on dark skinned ladies. Can’t help staring into a model’s eyes at this event because she was the only dark skinned with this eye color.
Kennie and I in Seyfriend Embroidery Romper which sold like hotcakes after I posted up a photo on my Instagram (@vaingloriousyou).
The amount of emails which came in were crazy and it was not even launched yet!
One page full of orders for the Embroidery Romper and I still have 71 unread all regarding this romper!
I am just starting to jump on the bandwagon but….Instagram is really amazing! There are so many orders coming in for all the unlaunched items I have been posting up on my Instagram.
Yup and this upcoming glittery party dress. Not yet launched but orders have already came in (gasp)!
I am contemplating to wear this out again tonight in gold glitter for my Tiger Beer event which I am to grace with other bloggers. Wore the silvery glitter one for my birthday and of course, I had it altered 2.5 inch so the dress would look just nice on me ;)
Back to the flea event, I am so blessed and happy to have Eve by my side! She was a great help and I need to reiterate, someone who can tolerate my forgetfulness haha.
Had to ask her this qn that day “Honestly, have you been pissed at me?” because I can’t believe she doesn’t have a temper especially when she has to work with me lol. For the record, she is extremely good tempered.
Well, her politically correct reply which she minced her words carefully was “Boss ah………if i say no it would be a lie la..buttttt definitely there are times….” HAHAHA.
Taken with Sophia from TJM at the flea :)

My 2 angels. Both ever friendly, good natured, kind and helpful! :*)
Kennie on the catwalk
Taken with Linda Hao. I love her edginess!
Photos which I received from a few lovely customers and readers of my blog! :)
Wanting was absolutely adorable!
It was a pity I lost the photo I took with Simin and her beau! They are VGY’s loyal customers since…forever! They have been turning up to show their support at every VGY event. I am so thankful to this gorgeous couple! If you are reading this, THANK YOU! :*)
Back to the event, Kennie’s 2nd outfit change was the lace beauty number. She caught so many stares when she was loitering around VGY’s booth!
Kennie easily tower over many other girls at 167cm.
One of the colors I received from this event is this painted purple cream gel eyeshadow color.
Used it to create a different look at the recent VGY shoot with Multifolds.
This was the photo I posted on Instagram. Felt so bad with so many compliments because the eyeliner was really just freehand drawing which otherwise look like crap up close!
This is actually the true color. Shot using just natural sunlight.
I am pretty amazed by the intensity of the eyeshadow color! It is gorgeous!
This was the finished look. Taken on the car using Iphone 5’s legendary front camera!
This look may look abit too dramatic with the blue eyes and bright red lippie. But if you do not “increase” the intensity of your makeup x10, in the photos (for a photoshoot) the lighting and all other environmental factors will –10 the intensity of your makeup making you look flat and bare-faced. So, having a “thick” look is crucial for good photos.
Did this for Kennie. She has earth tones instead with orange, cream, brown and green accents.
Gave her a pair of dollywink eye lashes and she looked gorgeous in it!
Prepping at Vainpot for the shoot
Worked with Multifolds
for the first time and Melvin, the photographer and owner of this budding company is such a pleasure to work with!
This photo captured was taken at the moment in time with the correct mood. I wanted an oriental look which can capture a woman who is so elegant, so classy and extremely wanted by many men. It was tough for all of us but Melvin was extremely patient and made it so much easier for us! He actually had oriental Shanghai Tang music played to get Kennie into the right mood. I have learned so much at this shoot with Melvin. Shared it with John and we will put it to good use at the next shoot! ;)
Can’t wait to work with Melvin again for VGY’s New Year lookbook! Let me know how do you think of the photos so I can work on them and give you better visuals! :)
John and I are thinking of getting Melvin to shoot for our (not wedding! haha) couple photos which we can hang in our house for keepsake. But we are ushering that into our next year’s plans as this is the busy period for us through CNY.
Happy Christmas to all my lovely readers and I wish all for your Christmas to be Merry as a song and your hearts be happy whole year long! ;)
