I’ve always been a big fan of breasts. Regardless of their shape, size, colour – I’ve always thought that breasts are pretty great and had a major love for my own pair. It’s no secret that I’m on the larger side when it comes to breasts, and I think that because of this, I definitely appreciate well fitting underwear much more than the average sized person. Being larger in the bust is a pain (quite literally) and it can be an absolute nightmare finding underwear that not only fits, but is still attractive and sexy.
I’m 24 years old – there’s only so many cotton, white, soft cupped granny style bra’s that I can handle!
Thankfully, there’s companies popping up who are starting to really branch out and cater for us who have big busts and big backs! Some of my favourite brands are –
Simply Be stock all of these brands and tons more for all shapes and sizes and also offer a bra fitting service in store which is really handy. They also have online advice about bra fitting here if you can’t make it to a store.
Simply be are also currently running a campaign called “Love Thy Bust” which has more fantastic information about bra fitting, including two videos from fellow bloggers Georgina & Leyah who talk more about the perfect fit, common problems and also different bra styles. The whole campaign is centred around having pride in your breasts – no matter what.
I’ve recently discovered a new found sense of pride in my bust. As a new mum, I’ve been amazed by how my body has changed to accommodate my baby and the most remarkable thing is how my breasts which I’ve always seen as something to be “sexy” and admired how they fill out a dress, have changed in my eyes. My breasts are doing what they were created to do – to feed and nourish my child. I find it mind blowing that I can give my baby everything she needs just from something my body creates – breasts really are an incredible thing and should definitely be given some love!
I’ve been giving my bust some love lately by making sure they are well moisturised. Not only does this make them super soft and smell lovely (and stimulates milk production) but it also is a way to check for lumps. As somebody who had a cancer scare at a young age, I always check for lumps and try to promote others to. Coppafeel have some great information on how to check yourself including this handy poster –
I know personally that I want to be around to watch my little bear grow up, so checking myself is definitely more important than ever. It takes a few minutes and it can save your life.
AAAANYWAY, back to a positive note – Simply Be kindly offered me some underwear to review which I will show you in separate blog posts when my body is more healed. I decided to order –
The Ava multiway wired bra, with matching pants.
And the Ruby full cup wired bra, again with matching pants.
I look forwards to them arriving and taking some snaps in them. Another way to love your bust is to dress it beautifully, and I definitely will be with these sets!
So, I hope that this post and the linked posts have been helpful. Please look after your bust and remember to check yourself – or if needs be…get a friend to help!
