Shimera Seamless Convertible Bandeau
Bought this in the pear green color. What a fun color! I love that this bandeau is not only well made, but also padded AND has convertible straps that can be easily shortened or detached. A lot of the bandeaus I see at the mall have neither feature. So far I have worn the bandeau for a casual look under a low-cut top instead of both a bra and a cami, but I plan to also wear it to a light workout (yoga) session. Btw I would recommend wearing the bandeau with the straps, since strapless bras tend to drag down throughout the day, requiring constant readjustment. This bandeau makes me want to try out other Shimera items in the future. I'm eyeing the peachy red color as well...
I just picked up this bra in the store. Looking at it on the shelf, I was a little hesitant. Once I tried it on at home, it was the bandeau I have been searching for. Oh so comfortable. The coral peach is so pretty and wearing it cross strapped is very comfortable. So much so I fell asleep wearing it. The pads are perfect and well concealed. They are just enough to enough to keep the high beams off. No worries there. The ruching is a final wonderful touch keeping the girls separated. More colors please. This could become my go to bra. Love the wide band as well. So stop searching and and enjoy Bandeau Bliss.
I originally bought this to wear on long haul flights. But it's so comfortable that I've ended up wearing it as an everyday bra.
I use it with the straps although I think it would stay up just fine without - I never have to tug it up or adjust it.
The padding is just enough to prevent the dreaded headlights. The padded insert is also tapered nicely at the edges so they doesn't look like obvious inserts (as some other similar bras do).
Nordstrom recently starting carrying a similar bra on-line: Nordstrom Intimates Bandeau Bra. I was excited because I thought it was the same item and is available in all the basic colors. But it's NOT the same. The padded insert is too small and not tapered at the edges and looks too obvious.
Please bring more of the original Shimera style back in different colors!
