Bras: My Experience + New Favourite ft. UK Lingerie

Wednesday, June 20, 2018
Today's post is a little different as we're talking about bras which is a topic I haven't really covered on my blog before! I was very kindly sent a bra of my choice from the lovely people at UK Lingerie which is a lingerie, nightwear, activewear and shapewear site with a wide range of brands, styles, colours and sizes to choose from.

*Prima Donna Divine Underwired Bra (£88)
I chose the Prima Donna Divine Underwired Bra which is a brand I haven't tried before as the price is  a little steep but it so nice to treat yourself to pretty lingerie from time to time. Prima Donna is a premium lingerie brand and the quality is fantastic; I chose the 'divine' option but there are lots of others to choose from along with matching briefs.
I have never been happy with any of the bras that I've owned, from some of my very first which were awkward and uncomfortable to push up bras I thought were the norm in my teens and then to heavily padded and underwired balcony bras. Over the past two or so years I've stopped wearing those heavy, uncomfortable and frankly painful bras and opted for sports bras while I'm at home (I currently work from home so it's 90% of the time) and less padded bras for the rest of the time.

In my teens I thought that underwired, heavily padded and push up bras were normal along with the discomfort and the bra strap marks that left imprints into my shoulders for hours, to me it was just part of having to wear bras but it's not! Wearing sports bras and far less padded, softer bras has been almost liberating.
The Prima Donna Divine bra does have some support in the form of underwire but the cups are made entirely of lace so they're very soft, flexible and comfortable which teenage Heather wouldn't have thought was possible with a bra. This bra is the perfect combination for me of the softness and comfort of a sports bra with the style and slight support of a traditional bra.

I was initially drawn to it because of the gorgeous design and the colour, the latter I thought would be perfect with my navy bridesmaid dress and it was! I wore this bra all day (and it was a very long day) for my friends wedding and it was light but supportive, the colour match was great and best of all, it was comfortable! I know that the price tag is very high but in my opinion in this case it's so worth it! There are lots of other brands and styles to choose from though with many in the lower to mid price range.

What do you think of this design? What are your thoughts?

  2. This is a lovely design. When I was a teen / early 20’s I used to wear padded push up bras all the time - sometimes even with extra pads in them - because I was so self conscious but I didn’t mind wearing them because they made me feel good.

  3. It does look beautiful and I'm sure the quality is good but I don't think I could spend that much on a bra.
