You may have noticed that last week we asked our lovely Facebook fans to tell us about their underwear dilemmas, and judging by the huge response we received it appears you ladies face a whole range of problems when shopping for your bust support! It’s not easy finding your ideal bra and if you’re anything like me, when you do find it, you cling on to it and wear it far too often, until you finally come to your senses (years later) and realise it is time to throw it out. There might be other bras in your drawer, but they will never be ‘the chosen one’ and so, the quest for a new favourite bra begins…
To help you through this (often painful) search, we thought we would respond to the more common issues mentioned by you all on Facebook – think of us as your bosom agony aunts!
The main grumble that came up time and time again was finding beautiful bras for the bigger bust at a decent price. Trust me, I also know this is by no means an easy task and I would urge you all to take a look at the new F&F fuller bust lingerie range on our website. I have to say, I think this is F&F’s best lingerie range yet. The collection boasts silky textures, lace and amorous shades, whilst still delivering on practicality and support for the larger sizes. The majority of the styles go up to a G cup and are simply worlds away from the uninspiring fuller bust bras we know from the past!
Here are some of my favourites from the new range…
Another response that stood out, and one that I can certainly empathise with, is the difficulty of finding sports bras that provide enough support for a fuller bosom. Although we like to find excuses to skip the gym session, our bras no longer need to be one of them! At just £6, the F&F Sports Bra goes up to an F cup and provides more than enough support for that early morning run (if you’re that way inclined – no need to feel guilty, I’m not either…!).
Finally, some of you mentioned that you struggle to find the right bra for the right situation – strapless, backless, t-shirt, plunge, push-up… it’s a complicated process! To help you out, we’ve created a new online bra guide to help you in your pursuit for the perfect bra match, whatever the occasion. We’ve put all of our bras into 11 straightforward categories to help narrow your search. From strapless to maternity, there is something for every shape, size, outfit and purpose. There is even a bra fitting guide if you need to measure yourself at home!
As for the larger sizes – I hope we are heading in a direction where big boobs no longer means boring bras. After all, women are versatile; therefore our bras should be too!
We say ‘bravo’ to both the online guide and the beautiful new range, and hope you feel the same.
