      I have to disagree with the other reviewers of this bra... I saw te TV show in which it was designed, and thought ok so it didn't look great but it was s good idea and I'd definitely try it if I came across it. On average I usually wear a 38G, but sometimes I can vary to F/FF depending on the bra and make, so it isn't easy finding bras in my cup size. I tried this Bioform one on in the shop and it was a struggle to get it on what with the huge lumps of plastic its made out of. Once I'd got it on I found the bits of plastic were digging in under my arms, and although I wasn't left with the bulging bits over the top that make you look like you have an extra set of boobs, it was still extremely uncomfortable and I could tell that wearing it was going to be painful. Thinking this odd, I asked the shop assistant to measure me (it was worthwhile since I hadn't been meaasured in so long anyway) and she confirmed that I was trying on the right size. She suggested a bigger underband, but when I tried that it felt loose and asn't giving me enough support, and funnily enough the plastic was still digging in at a strange angle. I can only think that this was due to its design and the way the plastic bit is fitted. This bra is really expensive, and if it fits you then its probably worth the money. I've given it 2 stars for the idea alone, and for the fact that someone has at last addressed this issue. Maybe I just have an unusual bust(!) but if thats the case I think most other big boobed girls would sympathise!

        I went shopping the other day and decided to treat myself to some new clothes. There wasn’t much that I needed but one thing I did need, was a new bra. I caught a bit of a documentary on channel 4 called “Brand New Bra” This basically was about a new bra which was designed by British Engineer’s. I went into Charnos and looked at one of these bras. The first thing I looked at was the price (are you ready) £22.00. I wouldn’t usually spend this much money on a bra (well only when I’m at an Ann Summers party) but I thought I’d give it a go, I was in a very good mood as well. It is available in sizes A and up. (Sorry I didn’t look at what the biggest size was) The designs are really pretty and there are loads to choose from. The reason that this bra is meant to be so good apart from the fact that British Engineer’s designed them is that the bra claims to lift and push from the sides, instead of pinching flesh under the arm. It has flexible plastic inserts that give shape and support, the sides are cut lower and there are no wires to dig into the skin. I thought that this sounded impressive so I thought I’d see for myself. I can be a size 36C in some shops and a size 38D in others, I never know what size to buy, as all the shops sizes are slightly different. The problems I have with bras are amazing; you would laugh your socks off if you could see me. They’re either to tight under the arms, to tight under the rib-cage or my boobs bulge out over the top so it looks like I’ve got 4 tits, did I forget to mention the straps that don’t like sitting on my shoulders. This bra is fab did you know that this bra was designed by an all men team and that the bra had to lift a load which could range from 80g to 2kg and cope with a bounce which could generate force of 40 Newton's. I found the bra very comfortable, it does make you breasts look
        a bit bigger but the best part is that they feel great maybe this is because I know that it was men who saved all day to design this, just so us women could wear it. This bra is being exhibited in New York in October it is called Bioform bra.

          The Bioform bra by Charnos. From the TV programme Designs on Your.... came the concept of the Bioform bra. Richard and Dick the designers from Agency Seymour Powell set about designing a revolutionary new bra for the programme, Charnos were so impressed that they worked with them through two years of research and development to develop the Bioform bra which recently went on sale. The two year struggle to production was docummented in a follow-up programme shown on Channel 4 the week the bra went on sale. Now to the bra. Well I'm no size 10 and I've never in my life had a bra that was comfortable from the first day I wore it. Instead of wires the "underwiring" is a mixture of rigid and flexible polymers which are fused together. It does feel like you have armour plating on your breasts for the first few hours but then you get used to the solidness. There is no underarm pinching and no pinching at the sturnum. The bra itself is pretty and well designed and here comes the revolutionary part ITS MACHINE WASHABLE!!! Standard underwired bras have no end of problems if they are machine washed. The wires become brittle and can snap, which has happened to me lots. I'd be sitting at work and realise that the wire on my bra had snapped and there was a pointy bit of metal digging into my breast. Also machine washing a regular underwired bra can make the fabric weaken so that the wire pops out of the end. End result, buy a new bra. The polymer in the bioform bra will not snap and is far to thick to poke out of a tiny hole such as appears in fabric with regular washing so no worries there. This is the bra you have been waiting for all your life. Say goodbye to underarm pinching and handwashing your bra! Say hello to the Bioform.
