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.

Our bodies are so varied, everyone is shaped uniquely. Bigger-busted women can face common challenges when bra shopping, but there are some beautiful bras designed especially to cater to D cup & up women. If you are curvy and short, you may be familiar with the below bra fitting challenges: The underwires may dig into your 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. At Brava, it's not unusual to fit a woman who says she is 14D into a 10G bra. It happens all the time! Afterwards, she looks and feels much better but is often shocked (and maybe in denial) about her correct bra size. In fact, sometimes ...

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 to avoid breast pain when exercising? Select a sports bra based ...

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.
