Review and Giveaway: Plus Size Lace Custom-Fit Bra by Comfort Choice

Men:
This is another post you might just wanna skip – unless you have any loveable curvy ladies in your life (38 – 48 B-DDD) who would like a free bra!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A couple weeks ago, I told you about how the kind folks at Full Beauty sent me a new bra after reading one of my complaints about never being able to find a comfortable bra. Well – they really put the cherry on top for me, because they recently sent me the Custom Fit Bra by Comfort Choice – and here’s the thing – it’s SO COOL, as in, wow, great idea – that there is a patent pending! What’s so cool about it? Well, not only can you adjust the shoulder straps, but you can adjust the band size by two inches – larger or smaller – for the perfect fit. As someone who fluctuates a lot in weight, this bra is going to be so important to my journey towards losing 50 pounds. Here’s a great picture that shows you how it works – all you have to do is adjust the straps to get a little extra room or make it a little extra snug.

When I first put on the bra, I was pleasantly surprised that for as “high tech” as it is, it doesn’t have underwire! When I worked at a bra store when I was 16, I was told that women over a size B cup should not go wire-free. Thankfully, the bra designers have proved that old-school rationale wrong, and now ladies of all sizes can enjoy having their breasts cradled by fabric and not pokey, cold wires. A couple of other perks I noticed – there are nice wide, padded shoulder straps, but they’re not big enough to stick out under clothing. The bra itself has a pretty lace overlay, which may not work for a very thin t-shirt or fabric, but is not visible under regular blouses. I’m also thrilled by the color – it’s hard to find plus bras in pretty patterns and shades, and I was sent the dark magenta, which is a gorgeous purple plum. One more thing that matters to me – I never “need” big cleavage or want maximum lift, but this bra does a great job hoisting the girls up into a nice, pretty and feminine position – nothing too Playboy bunny but nothing too demure, either. It’s the perfect medium for showing off your assets without showing too much.

Be wise with your size with the Comfort Choice Bra – the only bra that adjusts in size to fit your changing shape.

I like knowing that with this bra, I’ll get continued use after it even during and after my weight loss. Even the twelve or so pounds I’m down have affected the way my bras fit, so it’s good to know this one is going to stick it out with me for the long haul. Right now, I have it extended to the max so It’s a little more snug than I would like (Definitely still wearable) but it’s great to know in a couple more pounds, I can cinch it in to be the perfect size. Here’s another thing that’s pretty cool – even if it’s not on sale, it’s super affordable at $44.99. However, right now it’s being shown at $29.99 – $34.99. Score!

FullBeauty.com Seamless Wirefree Leading Lady Bra Review

Seamless Wirefree Bra by Leading Lady at FullBeauty.com. Thanks to the lovely model for showing off my new bra – I’m much too shy to reveal my assets on the internet!

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful Monday morning so far. So – do you remember my fitbloggin’ recap blog, in which I wrote about how nothing is impossible – except for finding a comfortable bra? Well – one of my lovely readers, Karen, works for FullBeauty.com - and offered to send me a free bra to help me change my mind! She and her team asked me a few questions about my girls, and I expressed to her my struggles with fit and fabric. She sent me 7 styles of bras to choose from, and I ended up choosing the Seamless Wirefree bra by Leading Lady. I’m not too particular about how my bras look -of course pretty is nice, but ultimately I need function over form, preferably without stabby, poky wires and annoying, scratchy lace.

The Leading Lady has microfiber molded seamless cups, “designed to give you a smooth, sleek look.” So far, so good. I’ve worn the bra for three days now and there’s no unsightly wrinkles or lines under my clothes. I opted for the pretty pale pink because I wanted something muted enough to wear under light colored shirts but to still stand out in my underwear drawer. I guess I’m not ALL function then, right?! :)

The material of the bra is super soft, and one of my favorite features so far is that instead of the standard three band settings (the little hook and wire thing – I don’t know what it’s called), there are four! This is perfect for me to wear and adjust gradually as I lose weight. The straps also change to your comfort level, and since I’m pretty tall with broad shoulders I always need to lengthen my straps.

I have to say that so far I’m impressed. Even more impressive is that I ordered the bra in my usual size, and the fit is dead on. This has always been one of my concerns about shopping for bras online – every brand seems a little bit different, but the Leading Lady line is true to size. My bra fits with no puckering, back bulge or the awful red marks under the breasts from the underwire. There’s even a cute little pintuck detail around the bottom.

Smokin’ Hot!

I’d like to thank Karen and the fullbeauty team – they may have just proved me wrong! I really recommend you check out the fullbeauty site – the prices are all extremely reasonable and much less expensive than Kohl’s or Macy’s. There are also really beautiful bras for plus-sized women, when we’re normally reduced to the basic over the shoulder boulder holders. I mean, look at this beauty – this the type of bra that isn’t really meant for daytime wear, if you catch my drift, but I’m sure wearing it in the day would add a little extra spring in your step!

There are also a bunch of coupon codes listed here to help you reduce shipping costs. In fact… I’m planning on buying a couple more items to keep my girls supported – the wirefree sports bra (on clearance for $9.88! SCORE!) and this camisole bra, which I’ve been eyeing for awhile and is a great price at $24.99.

So, now that I may have found a solution to my endless problems with bras – do any other ladies out there struggle finding the perfect fit? What’s usually the problem with yours?

PS: Congratulations to Troy, the winner of the case of PopChips! Thank you to everyone who entered – we’ll have more great giveaways soon!
