It was just another Thursday night in my ordinary week when I came across the opportunity to participate in a photography and video campaign for one of my most loved stores Brava and the brand Elomi. Usually I’d see an opportunity like this and really want to apply but my lack of confidence, lack of faith and overwhelming vulnerability would stop me.
Sound familiar? If it does, then we've got good news for you. We know that for many fuller-busted and plus-size women, the idea of finding a comfortable, supportive and pretty bra can feel like an impossible feat. But there are indeed options available... and yes, even sexy and fashion-forward styles!
Imagine walking along the beach or across town on a hot summer’s day with an open back dress, letting the breeze cool your skin. Until you lose your sense of calm as that same breeze reminds you that you’re wearing the industrial 'nude' bra that isn’t as inconspicuous as its colour represents
A phrase we often hear when fitting a woman into a sports bra is ‘I know I don’t look like I work out’. What does fit and healthy look like? It’s saddening that many women do not participate in healthy activity because they are uncomfortable with their bodies and feel exposed with a bigger bust.
Do you love the latest plunge style fashions but struggle to find the support you need without ruining the sexy neckline? When designers make beautiful dresses and tops, they often forget that women with bigger cups exist. We’ve put together a list of our favourite plunge bras to create a staggering shape, uplift AND support in those plunging dresses and tops.
The Elomi Amelia is a bandless bra, meaning there is no fabric band underneath the underwire so the bra band doesn’t roll and cut in. Seamless spacer fabric traps a layer of air within the cups for a beautifully rounded shape without adding volume.
Have you been wearing the same bra size for years? If the answer is yes, then you have good company. Many of us have an idea of our bra size, but often we pick up the same bra size that we have always worn without taking into account body changes such as weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy, menopause and various hormonal changes.
