What's New Around Town: Seamless Bras and Mosquito Repellent Bands
Life in the Hong Kong Lane.
‘Tis the season for sleeveless tops and tube dresses, but all too often we experience strapless bras that don’t provide enough support—resulting in a droopy silhouette or unsightly bra lines. Enter Regina Miracle: The List ladies recently got to check out the brand’s signature series of bras. They’re completely seamless down to the hooks, which help to smooth out the back. Its latest strapless design is also equipped with an anti-slip wing, which gives a stronger overall hold without risking red chafe marks at the end of the day. Not to mention they come in a huge range of colors and styles, all in super-soft breathable cotton. Perfect for hot and humid Hong Kong weather.
