Australia’s Lingerie Blog for Women D Cup and Up

Bra Fitting

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. In the long-run, this can cause chaffing, discomfort and will be a bra that you want to throw off the minute you arrive home. Straps that are not fully-adjustable tend to sit too far down your ...

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 ...

Freya Sundance Sweetheart Bikini

 Well, summer is here and our fabulous beaches beckon! How comfortable do you feel in your swimwear?  At Brava we can’t help noticing that most women focus on the parts of their bodies they don’t like, which are usually invisible to everybody else. Your body image is a reflection of how you perceive, think and feel about your body. This often has no bearing at all on your actual appearance. It is common for women to believe they are larger than they really are. It’s no secret that all women feel more ...

Panache Sports Bra

It’s best not to. When you run, your breasts can move up to 8 inches if not supported properly! 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 ...

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. ...

Brava customer - Isabella Van Deursen

This post has been guest-written by Brava customer, Isabella Van Deursen. 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 ...

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. '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. Being twelve with giant boobs wasn’t easy. I’ll never forget the day I came home crying because Michael Donnelly decided to point ...

Asymmetrical breasts

Did you know that over 50% of women have different size breasts? Surprisingly common, breast size asymmetry is the term used to describe when your breasts are different in volume, shape or position. The truth is breast asymmetry is so common that even popular celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and Keira Knightley have opened up about their own uneven breasts. After all, your breasts are sisters not twins! Typically, women find that the asymmetry is more noticeable during puberty and it evens out during development. Why is one of my boobs bigger ...

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 ...
