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.

'Moulded' describes how the bra has been made, by heating the bra material over a mold to give the cup its shape. Many moulded bras have a very thin even layer of foam, ...

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.

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.

According to a survey done by Rigby & Peller, the average women owns (drum-roll, please)... eight bras. But we think those survey participants may have hidden a few; our guess would be closer to 20 bras (Note: I ...

So, what do we look for when fitting lingerie styles for mature women? Older women need a bra with good structure in the cup; breasts become heavier with age as the tissue ...
