Tips for Wearing the Right Sized Bra

Tips for Wearing the Right Sized Bra: If anyone needs a reminder about wearing the right sized bra it is me!

I’m following the Slimming World plan and when I lose or gain weight, it tends to go on and off my boobs! Actually my boobs and my face. I can’t hide either particularly well so it’s important that I make sure I’m wearing the right sized bra. This week I was caught out when the bra I’ve been happily wearing for ages has either shrunk or I’ve put poundage onto the old mammaries again because I looked like I had four boobs on the school run yesterday!

Freya Lingerie Set

So today I am having a sort out and culling the baggy boulder holders. It’s just as well that one of my favourite lingerie companies Freya have been kind enough to send me this gorgeous bra and pants set. I will be wearing this at BritMums Live this weekend, so I know I look good under the clothes when I’m doing my speaking slot! I’m not planning to show anyone you understand, but it makes me feel good to know I have nice knicks on!!

Even the cat loves the lingerie!

This beautiful set is called the Firecracker Sunset Plunge Bra and Short

This is how your bra should feel and look according to Freya:
• Underband firmly anchored around the body. Bra level at the front and back.
• Breast fully contained with the underwire.
• No puckering or overspill in the cup.
• Underwires sit flat against the chest wall.
• Breast well supported giving the best support.
• Comfortable and supportive.
You can get more tips and bra fitting advice at the Freya website

This set feels soft against my skin and looks beautiful. The ‘girls’ are raised in place where they should be, unlike my bra of yesterday which is going in the bin now! What I love about Freya is that they have such stylish and colourful designs for women with big boobs (They go up to a K cup). It’s a celebration of our curves!

In the video below I’m chatting to my blogger friend Marianne about this Freya Lingerie set.

  • It’s such a pretty set – I’ve recently been doing the same. I don’t want to admit how old some of my bras were.

  • I love new underwear and spend a small fortune on it. My bra size does fluctuate too when I lose or gain weight. Freya sets are sooo pretty! x

  • Freya have gorgeous lingerie and swimwear. I’m a big fan. Great points about getting the correct bra size too. How often should you buy a new bra if you stay the same weight?

    • Retailers normally say every 6 months but I’ll be honest, I tend to leave it longer than that between purchases!

  • Such a pretty set. I recently went to my local Bentalls Centre to get measured properly and spent a small fortune on a few really nice bras, it feels so good to have a bra that fits properly now instead of one that’s digging in and hurting me!xx

    • It’s amazing how much better your figure looks with the right sized bra too isn’t it? I look like I’d lost 5lbs just by hoisting them up!!

  • The bane of my life! Currently trying to lose weight as I feel my boobs make me look like a tent!

  • One of the things I miss not having breasts is pretty underwear! I remember that a good fitting bra makes so much difference, not just to the way you look, but also posture

  • My problem is that I bought maternity bras and nursing bras whilst pregnant, and just assumed all my old bras would be ok! However they aren’t! I also find that I vary in size from brand to brand! I love the colours in this set!

  • What a gorgeous looking set, it is amazing how people don’t wear the right size bra – it seems to be a taboo subject almost.

    • Hopefully your fitting will just confirm that you are in the right bra but if not then what better excuse to treat yourself!
