I can’t get over Chromat and my love for this brand is something that I’ve cultivated over the past three years.
The first time I saw this brand, I was shopping on Nasty Gal. (FYI, this was during its peak from 2012 to 2013…) On the site, I stumbled across a model wearing a white shirt with a cutout black cage bra. Generally, cutout clothing was – and still is – so hard to wear beyond a shirt if you have big boobs like myself. Sometimes, there could be too much overboob, underboob and sideboob. But with that bra, layering it on top of a shirt was the best thing I ever saw. It was kinda like a Fantasy Bra minus the diamonds: it had the right lift that wasn’t overly aggro, fitted cut and sleek cutouts. It looked like something I could truly wear. Shipped, sealed and delivered, it was mine.
