“This bra is racy and seductive! Yet, as titillating as it is, it wears like a dream. We were able to wear the bra a full day of work and out for a night on the town with no issues.”

Ashley Graham is such an inspirational and powerful woman who has helped to changed the perception of the fuller figured woman in not only fashion, but in society as a whole. So when the Lingerie Journal (TLJ) was asked to review her new line of lingerie by BareNecessities.com we jumped at the amazing opportunity. Ashley teamed up with the popular online retailer in a lingerie and fashion collaboration that we are sure will shake the undergarment industry. TLJ was sent two bras for review — the Phenomenon lace convertible long line bra and the Fatal Attraction unlined bra.
Bare Necessities once again rocked in terms of having stellar customer service! The brand offered complete information on Ashley Graham and the lingerie. They also have the friendliest and most helpful staff! It was no surprise that our bundles of bra goodness came in exemplary packaging and in a timely manner. This is something that does not waiver with Bare Necessities. They successfully keep their (virtual) fingers in the pulse of their consumer audience and give us what we crave!

“Phenomenon is perfect for date nights and other moments when a peek-a-boo of lace is wanted.”
This Ashley Graham collection did not disappoint in terms of producing some much needed items for the fuller woman’s intimates Arsenal. One of the biggest concerns for girls with a dynamic duo is having an alluring bra that isn’t itchy. This is achieved with the Fatal Attraction unlined bra.
Firstly, the bra literally looks like a confection or the greatest present to be unwrapped. The brassiere is a striking hot pink color with black accents, opulent yet sturdy lace, and a tiny key that takes the place of the traditional bow found on most bras. This bra is racy and seductive! Yet, as titillating as it is, it wears like a dream. We were able to wear the bra a full day of work and out for a night on the town with no issues.
The Phenomenon bra is just as striking but not quite as user-friendly. It boasts a design literally dripping in lace and complete with a sheer lace halter that ties around the neck. The bra is marketed as a convertible piece and each of its components disengages without difficulty. However, due to the neckline being present you will always have the task of wearing a halter. This has to be considered when deciding on your wardrobe choice. Also, this piece was not as comfortable as its sister, the Fatal Attraction. Due to its long line design women who are not used to boning may find it an adjustment to reside in this bra for the entire day. Phenomenon is perfect for date nights and other moments when a peek-a-boo of lace is wanted.
