Corin Virgina Moulded Bra

Corin Virginia bra is one of our fitters’ favourites - it is perfect for everyday wear; it is form-fitting and ticks a lot of boxes! The Virginia Moulded Bra is ideal if you're looking for something to transition you from non-moulded to moulded bras. It creates a totally seamfree appearance under your clothes, thanks to the ultra-light 3D spacer foam which is a softer approach to moulded bras, allowing a softness that moulds itself to your bust.

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 ...

Freya Fancies Longline Bra

For years, we've swooned over Freya Lingerie's brilliant longline bra creations. We've covered previously on the Bra Fitter why we think that longline bras are the bees knees, and that every D Cup & Up woman should own one. However, they were often difficult to find as Freya would only bring out these fantastic longlines in their seasonal fashion ranges. Finally, after years of waiting, they have added the Freya Fancies Longline Bra to their ongoing range, and we ...

Why Do My Underwires Hurt Me
