Given my love of the Freya Deco, I thought I’d try their Fearne bra to see if I like it just as much. Unlike the Deco, it’s seamed and has far thicker straps and the gore comes up considerably higher since it’s a half-cup rather than a plunge. That said, it doesn’t come up as much as the pictures suggest – it may be the colouring that creates that illusion, or it could just look different on smaller sizes.
Finding a fantastic bra for day to day is probably the hardest lingerie task there is. It’s relatively easy to find a beautiful bra to just look good for a few hours or minutes, but finding something that feels comfortable, gives you great shape, and will deal with the day to day hardships of sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day, bending over to pick up kids. run after buses, or whatever else you do is much more of a challenge.
I asked 14 wonderful lingerie bloggers from around the world what their favourite ‘boring’ everyday bras are. Hopefully you can find your new favourite among them.
Wonderbra weren’t kidding when they called this the ultimate – after so many years, a designer finally cracked strapless bras and made sure that the design scales up to offer support to those of us above a D cup.
I have tried and tested quite a few strapless bras, and ultimately gave up on finding anything I’d really want to wear on a day to day basis. As a 34F I just couldn’t get my head around why designers kept just cutting the straps off a bra and expecting that to be enough.
It took years, disappointment, and a lot of discontinued ranges for me to find a bra that was a consistent favourite. So then I bought 3. Freya’s Deco bra is undoubtedly my favourite everyday bra – it works under all of my clothes, feels comfortable, and fits perfectly.
