Up to this point, the bullet bras I have reviewed have been more of the 1950s and 60s nature. But now there is a bra for the 40s lover… Today on The Bullet Bra Revue we have What Katie Did‘s CC09 1940s Satin Bra.
What Katie Did has slightly modified an original World War II era bra pattern to accommodate for modern cup sizes, as well as the comfort we modern gals have come to expect from our bras.
The CC09 has a soft curve, and is obviously less bullet-y, yet not as “globe” or “melon” like as modern bras. This bra still creates the lift needed to meet the darts of vintage garments.
One thing that I noticed with this bra in contrast to the Mairtresse and Padded Bullet was the band fit. The CC09 bra lacks the small bit of elastic between the cups that add a tiny bit of extra stretch to the bra. A tiny bit that I felt I actually needed for a certain comfort level, so I put a bra hook & eye extender at the end of the bra, giving me the less than half inch I needed for a more comfortable fit.
The CC09 bra is $50.00, available only in “Peach”, made in India and of polyester with matching adjustable polyester straps (so no stretch) and elastic near the hook and eyes.
