For me, I have always seemed to struggle to find comfort for my heavy breasts up until recently , I discovered that I had been in fact wearing the wrong size , 3 sizes too small, so it was no wonder my boobs were aching me and leaving me my boobs been squished and forced around towards my back and underarm.
Having now been correctly sized up , I longed for some beautiful new bras and it felt exciting to go look at all the amazing choices available.
Unfortunately the excitement disappeared when I soon realised , what I was looking for , was actually harder to find than I originally thought.
I only wished to get an unpadded bra that was plain black and feminine in size 36F
I give you the challenge to go to your local Town centre , search for an unpadded bra.
They all seem to be padded , and now knowing I am no longer a C but in act an F in bra size I am in no need of padding.
It was merely impossible and considering I live in Durham , I thought their would be plenty of options , but even trailing the Metrocentre in Gateshead, I found only 1 Bra , yes just 1 and it was priced at £45 .
Luckily for me , I received an email from the owner of Clara Olivia offering me two of their bras.
Having been tired from the failure of my last shopping for bra's , I was unsure if they would also be able to provide me with what I needed .
I was pleasantly Surprised.
Clara Olivia was my haven to the world of bras.
In fact they had every bra in every size, shape and colour and get what?
There were so many unpadded bras !
Here are the two bras which Clara Olivia sent to me .
The order arrived 3 days after the order was made, which to me was fast. They say it takes between 2 - 4 days in general upon ordering from the site.
I obviously ordered two of their unpadded bras, I wanted to see how it would feel to wear real fitting bras with no padding or push up effect , just comfort and shaping my boobs properly in a true fitted bra.
I ordered the Louis in black and the Elodie in White , the two colours which I am always in need of for every day wear .
The Fantasie Lois -
Cost - £29
Sizes - D to J
This is one of the most comfiest bras I have worn , It fits perfectly and the material actually makes me feel like I am wearing nothing at all.
This bra actually shapes my breast ,in fact I never actually knew my boobs were such a lovely shape and having the extra side support means I have all my breast tissue pulled forward and placed into the cup where it is meant to be with no over hang under the arm .
I was advised because of the shape of my breast , I should use a full coverage bra with a high centre .
This bra is my perfect bra.
The centre of the bra fits perfectly centre and against my chest bone with no pressure and nipping and the cup of the bra moulds my breast to a stunning shape .
If you have problems with side support this bra is for you .
It certainly is my most comfortable bra and it also washes lovely with No shrinking or effecting the material.
I love the detail around the top of the cup, that little bit of extra lace effect , gives it the feminine touch .
Cost - £41
Sizes - D to J
Having sorted the black bra , I now needed a white bra and to be honest white bras never stay white for long, the colour distorts after washes.
I have washed this bra three times now and it still holds its bright white shade which I am thankful for.
Having thick straps gives me the security , knowing it fits well as well as the high centre and full coverage which fits my breast perfectly.
Having more of the lace effect on the top of the bra cup it self , I was a little worried that this would give me irritation but the soft material is very gentle on the skin.
Again this bra gives you that extra side support, and the fact that my breasts are in the cup and not pushed and pulled around my underarm means that I have more comfort .
I love the detail on this bra, it certainly is a pretty bra and the centre fits once again snuggly on the breast bone giving me that full breast shape which I desire.
Finding the perfect bra can be daunting , but I am so pleased with Clara Olivia and their huge range of lingerie.
You can get many different styles of underwear from their site including sport, swim and shapewear .
I now know where to take a first look for my bras , it feels like for the first time ever I'm wearing the perfectly fitted , most comfortable bras .
