La Perla loses out to Target

According to Consumer Reports, the $12 Gilligan and O'Malley padded demi bra (sold at Target) outperformed a $127 La Perla Vintage and a $45 Victoria Secret Ipex Demi for comfort, fit and durability. Via New York Magazine.

I hate that grandma nude color, but maybe it comes in black... (And, surprise! They're out of stock online.)

  1. After I read this, I had to see what the fuss is about and went to Target and purchased myself one of these bras...and I must say, they are pretty awesome. I've been comfortably wearing mine all day.

    Love your blog, btw!

  2. Yay Kelly! I'll have to go buy one. But be honest, are they ugly...? ;)

  3. shopping for bras is such a bitch.
    i need to.

  4. I just went out and bought two. $10.99 at my Target, and they actually come in my size! I am a 36DD and they have my size in some really cute patterns and colors. I got a green one and a blue patterned one, and I am already totally in love with them. They fit much better than the $30 Bali ones I usually buy at Kohl's!
