Sweet! ~ b.tempt’d by Wacoal

When I was in college, my British born boyfriend introduced me to Bassett’s Licorice Allsorts.  Every time I see this confectionery mixture I have a Proustian moment.  It forever brings me back to those halcyon days when I was captivated by him and the possibility of changing the world.  It was the late 1960’s. We were fresh, earnest and very serious about our futures; we had no idea how joyous our lives really were.  It was a very charmed time; the sweet taste of freedom, the delicious knowledge that our lives were before us and the power we held in our bosom to make a difference.   Those candies will forever be a symbol of great expectations and promise.  I have graduated now to the deep richness of truly dark chocolate, but when I see those licorice sweets, I am always reminded of the temptations of youth.

When I first saw the b.wow’d plunge push up bra assortment from b.tempt’d by Wacoal, I had a piquant flashback to the delightful memories associated with college days.  They evoked a comparison to those mouthwatering treats on which we always splurged; particularly this black sample with purple highlights. It recalls the seductive flavor of black licorice, colored sugar and feeling special about oneself. This style (943187), sewn in one piece and fitting sizes 32 – 36 B – DD cups, is available in 6 different color combinations. Young women with a fashion appetite might choose more than one. No wonder this bra has become a best-selling item in those stores who have decided to indulge.
