I’m a huge fan of quality lingerie, as the fit, shape and support of a decent bra has the power to make or break your day by influencing your posture, back and shoulder muscles. There’s nothing worse than an ill-fitting bra that pinches and digs in or leaves you bouncing when you walk and uncomfortable when breathing. For the majority of women a bra is an essential item of clothing that we wear daily, so why not get the most comfort and style from your lingerie, right?
Lingerie and swimwear specialists Bras & Honey are sponsoring the Great British Bra Survey this year to help investigate the ambiguous attitudes that us ladies feel towards the way in which we buy and wear the most important part of our underwear. Their aim is to educate the nation about the importance of bras from comfort when wearing them to the health benefits they can give as well, as last years results shockingly found that 8 out of 10 women wear the wrong size bra.
Interestingly they are also looking to see what are the most popular sizes are from across the different regions in order to help determine the most popular colours, styles, brands and bra culture compared to last year. To celebrate this, Bras & Honey are giving one lucky lady the prize of a bra a month for a whole year just for taking the free survey. The Great British Bra Survey closes on the 31st August with the winner being announced on the 1st September, so get your entries in quickly ladies!
I’m celebrating summer with this beautiful Freya Flowerbomb underwire plunge balcony bra in spice and matching shorts from Bras & Honey, and I just love the vibrant print of the scattered petals and neon embroidery which is refreshingly modern and feminine. With my ample bust I now tend to avoid padded or push up bras for fear of looking like a blow up doll and adding extra bulk to my silhouette, and this bra is thankfully classically cut, supportive, beautifully comfortable and stylish. With delicate bow detail and framed printed straps, the attention to detail of a quality set of lingerie is second to none. And I’m fast becoming a fan of shorts and briefs over thongs for how pretty and comfortable they are. There’s something powerful about wearing a gorgeous set of lingerie that puts a twinkle in your eye and a wiggle in your hips, and I’m a long supporting fan of Bras & Honey for their impeccable customer service and high quality stock of the finest ranges.
