Boobs on a Wire & Bust Stops Here Pics Plus A Question About Technical Underwear (Updated)

Boobs on a Wire (pink) and The Bust Stops Here (lolo) (click on photo to enlarge)

Now that I see these on a mannequin, I still like the Boobs on a Wire better. I think it has the more natural shape. The Bust Stops Here shape looks very similar to the Ta Ta Tamer. It isn't as low cut as I thought, it just has more of a V in the front. If it shows up tomorrow, I definitely think I will order it.

Update - A photo of an actual person wearing the Boobs on a Wire. I like it. The shape is very natural and much better than the Ta Ta Tamer. I am definitely ordering one. The product alerts I got were all only up to 36DD so I will have to order the 38DD on line. I am assuming the band sizes run small like they do in the TTT otherwise I'd order the 36DD which is my correct size.

Has anyone bought Patagonia technical underwear?  I am thinking of the Barely Hipster, which honestly look a lot like Lululemon's old design of the technikini. They are both made in Israel so I am wondering if they have the same manufacturer.

I am also thinking of the Active Hipster but I'm worried the wide waistband might dig into me:

If anyone has a recommendation of a another brand they like, please let me know. I looked at Title Nine and Athleta but the Patagonia seems most like what I am looking for (wide crotch so they don't ride up and low rise in back). I also like that the Patagonia comes in black and nude.

Upload Thursday Wishes - What Are Yours?

It's a bit early in the day but what are you hoping for in tomorrow's upload? I think I'd like to give the Boobs on a Wire a try. I'm wrestling with what color to order. I'm hoping a white one shows up on line but if not, maybe a River Rock. I'll have to survey my tanks and see which would work best. I am also hoping the Mesh Headbands show up in Lolo and the other colors. As always, a new surprise fabulous tank design would be nice. I'm not sure if I'll order the Inspire Jacket or go try it on at the store first. It's an expensive new technical jacket so I can't imagine those will sell out within hours, especially in my size. I think I'll have time to try it on at the store.
