Bra Shopping

Collaborative Post

When did you last replace your bras? I recently learnt that you’re meant to replace your bras every 6 months or so. Some of my bras I dread to think how long I have owned them! So, when I got the opportunity to treat myself to some new lingerie from UK Lingerie I decided to update my bras!

The Sports Bra

One of the best bras to invest in is a sports bra, if you do any level of fitness activity. I have a couple of sports bras already, but I really wanted a great sports bra which would offer optimum support. I’m upping my fitness, so I need something with plenty of support!

I opted for a Shock Absorber Ultimate Run bra – as it is seam free on the inside – no chaffing! I like that you buy this style by bra size, although on advice I went a chest band size – and was pleased I had! It is a really comfortable bra for exercising in, it supports and keeps me coold – it seems to wick sweat away. I think it helps my posture while I’m running too.

The T-shirt Bra

I like having a t-shirt bra as I wear a lot of fitted shirts, and I don’t want my bra showing through! I chose a Wonderbra Ultimate Silhouette T-shirt Bra. This is a great bra! It fits true to size, is seriously comfortable, and gives me a great shape! I like the fact that this can be worn with quite low cut tops too. The cut of the bra means it works with a low v-neck and not just t-shirts! I chose the nude colour as it works with all my summer wardrobe, but I’ll be investing in a black one too!

The Balconette Bra!

I think you need a balconette bra or a push-up bra in your lingerie drawer! Personally, I’m a fan of a balconette bra, I prefer the fit to push-up bras and they seem to work well with my wardrobe.

So those are my essential bras, and now I’m wearing the right size and style every day no matter what I’m doing!
