Bras for Bigger Busts

I’ll keep this intro simple because if you’re reading this you’re probably thinking beautiful bras for busty girls? WHERE?! Does your story sound something like this? Shopping for bras as a teenager was depressing, to say the least. Finding anything cute, modern and that didn’t feel like a straitjacket seemed impossible. You may have even stood in those change rooms feeling isolated and close to tears as a sales assistant tried to force you into a skin tone, minimiser with 4 hooks after you requested something sexy to fit under ...

The Bikinis Every Busty Woman Should Be Wearing This Summer

The sun is shining and the time has come to hit the beach. Beaches mean bodies and bodies mean bathers and as a person who wears an 8GG, the thought of shopping for one is terrifying. You all know what that’s like right? It’s sitting on the fitting room floor surrounded by a sea of bikinis with incredible prints you will never pull off. It’s scouting the racks for something with enough material to cover your boob and coming up blank and it’s ...

Almost 9 out of every 10 girls aged 13-14 are failing to meet the recommended amount of exercise, according to the Women’s Sport and Fitness Foundation, and for many of them the reason boils down to one easily-solvable problem – their bra. A study published in The Journal of Adolescent Health found that almost half of 11-18 year old girls – and almost two-thirds of those who wore a D+ cup size – said that their breasts had some sort of impact on their participation in sport and exercise. ...

In July 2018, I am heading to Nepal on a school trip as part of a World Challenge expedition. Our World Challenge team will soon decide on a community project, which may involve assisting locals with much-needed renovations or construction, establishing clean water and waste supplies and creating vegetable gardens. We will have the opportunity to work with families who live off the grid and in extreme poverty. Nepal is one of the least developed countries in the world, with a literacy rate ...

Bra advice from mother to daughter

Will I Am’s 2007 Hit “I Got It From My Mumma” is our family’s mantra. My mum is a glorious F cup and her three lady offspring don’t drop below an E. Our boobs came in quick, which made puberty hell for us and for our poor dad who went bald worrying about all the boys he’d have to fight off his little girls. Being twelve with giant boobs wasn’t easy. I’ll never forget the day I came home crying because Michael Donnelly decided to point ...

This blog post has been guest-written by Alison Vella from Student Musings. So I recently entered the corporate world. If I thought hiding my knockers was a problem before I was out of my flipping mind. Working in an office where tees and ripped jeans violate dress codes makes choosing an outfit an almost impossible task. It’s like having another limb to think about – an awkward protrusion to hide because some bloke decided it was inappropriate flesh to flaunt. It’s not a nightclub, you don’t want to be cat-called, or hit on or ...

This blog post has been guest-written by Alison Vella from Student Musings. Heading into 2017, there is a whole area of sports medicine dedicated to supporting big breasts. There are scientists examining our grievances from a biomechanical perspective. They are researching, designing, prototyping and testing and it is their innovation that has allowed us to vault off springboards, skip over ropes and sprint to finish lines confident in the vehicle of our own flesh. Here’s how they’re doing it: They have reduced bounce There is a serious risk of knocking yourself out doing mountain ...

How do you feel about your bra size? Are your cups half full, half empty, or over-flowing? Before I worked at Brava, I used to squeeze myself into D cup bras. I didn't even believe cups went bigger than an E cup… anything close to an F cup set me reeling back in self-denial! On the subject of self-denial, as a teenager I was fearful of anyone mentioning Dolly Parton in my presence. Name-calling wasn’t something I stood up to well. At the very beginning of my journey as a bra fitter ...
