Change Tactel Push Up - A Review

Review of the Change Tactel Push Up Bra

When I had the good luck of running into a Change store when I was on vacation last week I had to get something. Change is known for making many bras in many sizes. Most things come in 30 bands, some even 28 bands, and many styles go up to a J cup. Change is also known for making great bras for people who are broad rooted and shallow. Although some of the bras had painfully high underwires at the gore and some of them were too closed in at the top edges for my tall roots, I managed to find one that was great. Enter the Tactel Plush Up Bra, which seems like a dream to me. Let's see how it stacks up:

Band Size: True to size. It said it was a 30 band on the label and it stretched out to 30.5". I'm impressed. 

Cup Size: The cups run true to size. The 30D was perfect for me.

Cup Shape: Great. It accommodated my broad, tall roots, and shallowness.

Cup Spacing and Centre Gore: Good. The cups are about as close together as I can stand.

Color: I wish that such a great bra would come in more colors than just Black and "Skin". Apparently you can buy it in White on the website, but the retail store only carried two colors. This bra is so good it should also come in Pink and maybe Cream/Champagne.

Verdict: This would have been a 100% rated bra if it were not for the color. It's great for people who are classically shallow, broad rooted, and tall rooted.

Change Retail Store Review

Change is a multinational chain of lingerie retail stores, headquartered in Denmark. I went on vacation recently and decided to stop by one of their stores and check it out. 

When I first walked in, I was greeted by one of the two salespeople. They asked me what size I wear and directed me right away to the dressing room where they brought me the bras in my size.

Their selection of bras is okay. They only carry their own house brand of lingerie. They have a good selection of sizes 30B-E, 32-36A-J. They also had some 28 band bras and some 38 band bras. All of the moulded bras were either for shallow or super shallow shapes, and they did carry some unlined bras that were meant for more projected shapes. However, those bras only came in larger cup sizes. Some cups were open at the top edge, some were closed at the top edge.

While I think it's great that they carry 30 band bras and cup sizes up to a J, it think it would be nice if they could also carry more 28 band bras, and carry more colors (all of the colors offered were either black, beige, or pastel). The best things about the store are the level of service and the prices. The bras were only 50$ CAD, which is quite reasonable for me.

Verdict: 4/5
