Choosing the right bra

A good bra can make a huge difference to how you look and feel during the day. Now if my boobs could just stay in the same place after the bra comes off that would be ace!

I have been reflecting on my boobs. Having breast-fed four babies now, they are looking a little the worse for wear. They were huge during and after all pregnancies, and while I have never wanted big boobs, they are perhaps preferable to the shrivelled things which, when not breastfeeding spend most of their time in my armpits.

You know the boobs that vanish when you lie down? No? Just me? Oh well… I needed to add to my ‘to do list’ that I must purchase some bras which can at least relocate them in the centre of my chest during the day.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the fact that these boobs have fed all my babies and nourished them – there is something quite special about that, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. You might have seen some publicity recently relating to the new bra by Playtex.

It has been featured in the press quite a lot lately, along with lots of references to a study which has revealed that almost half of women are not happy with the shape of their breasts.

The new Contour Perfection Bra is an underwired bra with innovative top cup padding. This restores a naturally rounded shape and fullness without adding volume. Bonus! It is finished in pretty flat lace and microfiber on a moulded cup, and is invisible under your clothes. Now if only we all looked like this in one right?


Now perhaps combined with a few gazillion hours on the peck deck this could be the answer. At least during the day they should look reasonable!

  1. I’m just about to start round two of my breastfeeding journey and was shocked at the size of my boobs when I had my nursing bras fitted. They are going to look nothing like a remember when I’m done. I’m all for a bit of artificial help to get them back in order – moulded cups are right up my street! #TriedTested
