Ewa Michalak Bibi BM Bra

‘’I want something that lifts me up and pulls me in from the sides." Every bigger-busted woman’s dream is to get a lift and not have their breast tissue irritating their underarms.

Bra myth: DD cup is huge!

Using the term  'DD cup' excites the boys and frightens the girls. But mention you are a G cup in polite company and people will look at you in disbelief. Many women think they are D cup and always seek that size. But when they submit to a proper fitting, D cup isn't even close.

Breast bounce during exercise can stretch supportive ligaments, causing your breasts to sag and possibly leading to back pain and discomfort. A good sports bra is engineered to support you much better than a regular bra, but most importantly it will give you the comfort and confidence to push harder for longer. With the range of sports bras available in D-K cup sizes nowadays, there are no more excuses! What's the best way ...

Moulded Bras in larger cup sizes

Do you fear that wearing a moulded bra will make your bust look larger? This is a common misconception about moulded bras, which in our experience we've found to be untrue. To clear up any confusion, we define a moulded bra as having a seamless cup which holds its shape even after you have taken it off.
