Is it me, or is it really hard to find a good bra these days? Here’s the deal: I don’t want an itchy, lace covered, wrong sized bra on my body. I want to put one on and forget I’m wearing it. I’ve worn bras in the past that dig into your ribs and you literally can’t wait to take off once you get home, and I just can’t do it anymore. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a black lace number every now and again when I want to feel a little sexy, but 99% of the time I want to be COMFORTABLE. And supported! Is that too much to ask?
I wear a bra 24/7. I like a non underwire bra like above in black or nude for day (with almost no bells and whistles), or a simple cotton sports bra type thing at night or with my lounge clothes. I buy my cotton ones at Walmart in sets of two or three, and like how I just feel contained in them while I sleep, you know? (Too much? Ha.)
Typically I do not like an underwire bra anymore, and find that the bras that are out now that have no underwire are amazing. They give support without the stiffness, and I love them. I’m pretty sure I own about 7 bras right now and only 2 have underwire? I am OVER underwire! Another issue I have is size. I have a small rib circumference and a large cup size, and finding something that fits ME is nearly impossible. (First world problems, I KNOW.) I swear, you can only find a 34 B or a 38 DD in Target nowadays. Ugh. Also, Victoria’s Secret is something I don’t love, either! They are (in my opinion), too expensive, too uncomfortable, and not great quality for the price. I don’t want to sound cheap here, but I don’t want to spend a lot on my bras! I want a couple of good options for day, something sexy for when I feel like it, and I don’t want to spend a lot. I also want a bra that looks equally as great under a cute dress as it does under a thin tee.
I’ll be honest, I’ve had some surgeries and corrective things done (another post, I promise!) that have made it both harder and easier to buy bras, and I’ve been a couple of different sizes throughout my life. That would make me a bra connoisseur, right?! A lot of bra issues I used to have are over, but I remember very vividly how HARD it is to find something that works for larger breasted gals, as well as smaller, too.
Enter Hanes and their Ultimate T- shirt bras. They were kind enough to send me two and they have become my new favorites. I’m wearing the Ultimate T-shirt soft underwire bra in gray in the first pic and it is one of the first bras in a long time that has an underwire that I couldn’t feel. I liked the different color (I am a black or nude girl), and the seamless look it gave me. I also adore the price ($17.99!), and the fact that it can be bought in my size. Yippee. I also got the Hanes Ultimate Smooth Inside & Out Wirefree bra in navy that is my true love. The comfort level is out of this world, and the support is great. It is seriously the softest bra, too, something I really enjoy. I hate weird feeling fabrics, they creep me out!
On to the fun! Hanes is giving away these two bras I spoke about above to one of YOU (in your size, of course!) It’s funny, I think bras and underwear are something we women don’t really think of too much, and often go a long time without updating (I know I do.) YET, a good bra is something that really sets you up for success, not only by making your clothes look nice over them, but confidence wise as well. To have a bra that is comfortable, well priced, and fits well is PRICELESS, is it not?
This giveaway will run for one week and is open to U.S. residents only, Good luck!
