What to look out for when shopping for Bras for big boobies

8 August 2016

Ahh the blog post about breasts. How I have been waiting a long time to write about you but my prude-ish ways makes me shy away from such things like boobies and vaginas. But I'm taking the plunge today. 

I remember the first time I brought a bra at the tender age of 11 or 12. I was so excited. My friends mum took me and my friend shopping at Marks and Spencer's to buy our first training bra. I remember mine - a white AAA cup training bra. I was in heaven when I first put it on, that was when I realised I was becoming a women.

The Statistics 
Apparently over 80% of women wear the wrong bra size. Me included. I've been wearing a D cup for the longest thinking this was my size as the last time I was measured was yonks ago (Probably when I was a slim ting). I decided to measure myself late last year only to find out I am now a size 34E (WHATTT! I'VE GONE UP A FACKING CUP SIZE!). Not cool that I was squeezing my E size boobies into a D cup. No wonder they gasped for air every time I took my bra off at the end of the day and let's not talk about the spillage because I tried to hide it but some how there was always... spillage.

So here are a few things to look out for when shopping for your big boobies.

1. Support is everything
I remember the Mr. bought me a bra that had no wiring. I told him it wasn't going to work. He turned around and said: 'but it's your size no?' Me: 'yes babe it's my size but my boobs are going to fall out of these... we need support.' and that was the end of that conversation. I can't bring myself to throw the bra away so it's still at the bottom of my underwear drawer. NOTE: The wrong bra size can cause tension in your back and shoulders which can ultimately cause headaches and bad posture...

2. Say NO to EXTRA padding
Why would we need EXTRA padding so when our boobies are fucking massive as it is? No.Thank.You.

3. Black is everything
Black/dark bras are everything. I prefer darker colours when it comes to my underwear. Especially as I don't want to draw attention to my boobs. I mean wearing a white T-Shirt with a pink bra is a no for me.

4. Cheap vs Quality 
Even though Primark now do my size it's not worth it. When I was a D cup (and under) I could buy Primark bras but now I can't risk it. They fall apart quicker than you can say 34E and the support just isn't there. I have gone back to my roots and now purchase all my bras at Marks and Spencers. Trust me when I say their bras are amazing and worth every penny. If I do want to feel that much sexier Lazenza is always a good choice too.

I hope you guys felt like this was an insightful post... now go and get measured babes!


  1. Yaaas my big boob sister! I'm a DD and swear by M&S for comfy, quality bras. Although, I have found a couple of good ones in Primark by chance. The others have sadly fallen apart quickly though! But I have found the odd gem in there x

    1. I get ya girl - I love primark as it cheap and cheerful and they do some really nice bras but i literally get a max 3 month wear out of them!

  2. Some useful advice and I totally agree with you about how important support is and going for black is a must.
