Bra underwire can have a polarising effect on fuller-busted women - some of us can't live with it, and others can't live without it! At Brava we meet many women who are looking for wirefree bras, usually because their underwired bras are too uncomfortable.
Self-care can be hard to fit into a busy life, but there is perhaps no more important time to invest in your comfort than when you are pregnant or a new mum. Mums often put their own needs last (somewhere after remembering to feed the dog and water the plants), but there is a lot to be gained from practising putting your needs first every now and then.
Saying goodbye to a favourite bra that has been your soulmate (or breast-friend-forever) is quite a tough ordeal. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing pretty or comfortable out there in terms of maternity and nursing bras. Read on for our list of bust issues we all experience during and after pregnancy. You’re not on your own! Most fuller-busted women share these woes.
We all know about the itty bitty titty committee, but somewhere along the way the big rack pack got left behind. Thanks to lingerie stores like Brava and new labels like RAQ, D cup and up is making a well overdue comeback. Finally, busty women can find swimwear and bras that actually fit, and look good! So who am I and what is RAQ, you may ask?
Breast pain during sports is a common occurrence, especially for D+ cup women. In a recent survey of our customers, a staggering 55% said their breast size has prevented them from participating in sport at some point during their lives.
Fashion is sometimes designed and made without taking a woman's bust-size into consideration, which is fine unless you're blessed with killer curves and a D+ cup bust! We know there are bras that can work with almost any outfit, the challenge can sometimes just be in finding them. And we love a challenge!
