Ascending Butterfly Holidays Buying Guide 2010, Eighth Giveaway sponsored by:

I am very happy to say that I discovered Le Mystere WAY before Oprah did! I had hit a point where I wasn't happy with the same old same old. You know, the same old lack of style, the same old lack of support, and the same old lack of availability in my size. My weight had changed and so had my size, I knew it was time to go 'pro'. I decided to get a professional sizing done. I set out to Macys in New York City and didn't have to do much work. A very wise woman with tape measure and a fantastic eye saw me looking like a deer caught in headlights in the bra section and she instantly knew I needed help!

In a series of amazingly fortunate coincidences, after she measured me and gave me my true new size and asked several pertinent questions about my expectations (like having the girls at least appear to be pointing upward at all times). She ushered me to the Le Mystere section. I already liked the name, I felt like a secret agent of breasts. I actually did a double take as we got closer to make sure no one was following us. There was a rep from Le Mystere there filling the racks and watched us approach. The Macy's fitter and the Le Mystere rep spoke a bit and I kept hearing the word 'Tisha' being bandied about.

At first I thought she had forgotten my name, but then they both waved an assortment of bras that oddly resembled Mickey Mouse Ears when lying flat at me and said pick a color and try one on! I grabbed the black (yes I am a New Yorker you know!) and went into the fitting room. I tried on my first Le Mystere Bra. And lo and behold the girls were pointing in the right direction again, there was no bulge, lumps or bumps to be seen, and when I threw on a thin summer weight cashmere twin set over it I was super happy with just how well everything looked. I was elated. Except for one thing. I found that the band was a super perfect fit, and I asked them both if I should size up. And they both smiled and said 'NO' in unison. (Scary like the twins from 'The Shining' movie unison.) They told me the band is supposed to be a perfect fit because that is where the support actually comes from with Le Mystere bras, which after having worn them for many years now, I believe, is the key to why they hold up so well. They are not solely relying upon the straps to provide you the support you need.

Now I will tell you with all honesty to that point in my bra buying history, I'd been purchasing a popular 'boxed' brand that are often sold on sale in chain stores. So while my brain said 'BUY, BUY, BUY in EVERY COLOR', when I took a gander at the price tag, I realized I could only afford one. With my normal brand, that amount of money would have netted me three bras. My inner frugalista argued that 3 bras in the box are much better than one, but I knew that this time my inner frugalista was WRONG! Gasp, yes I said it, frugality was actually NOT the right choice this time.

That very next day I wore my new bra and because it is super supportive, I noticed and so did everyone else a marked change in my posture. PERK!

I noticed that nothing you don't want to see poking out if the room is cold or it's a chilly day out, remains well concealed with this bra. Again, PERK!

And fast forward five years later, Le Mystere is my ONLY bra of choice. No other bra has been able to deliver the same quality results. And I love that I can find it in various colors in my size. Which is many times a challenge with other bras.

Le Mystere recently took a good thing and made it that much better by adding lace to my beloved Dream Tisha Style Bra. So now I've got the same function, with a touch of cute girly fashion, it's a match made in lingerie draw heaven. I can wear the cute lacy Tisha with it's matching panty, and always feel like I'm keeping a super sexy secret during the day when I'm wearing them!

I actually have very mixed feelings about Oprah discovering MY Bra. Yes I said it, MINE!!! Now everyone knows just how great Le Mystere is and just how fantastic the Tisha style is. OH NO!!! I sometimes have trouble finding them, especially when Ms. 'O' re airs that episode on finding the right bra. I know it's good because it's helped the brand grow, but sometimes her love of my perfect bra makes it harder for me to get my hands on it!

Today I get the honor of playing Oprah for a day and sharing one of my ultimate favorite things with YOU. The Dream Tisha Bra and Panty set! Once you try this Bra, I can guarantee that you will never go back to the bargain bras in the box. They are literally THAT GOOD.
