This is a review of a pack of two bras I bought from ASDA recently. Last week they were on the website but this week they are gone so they have run out of the spot version but they currently do an exact version of these bras in 'floral' for this season which I am tempted to buy.
Let me start off by saying I hate shopping for bras as I am virtually off the scale size wise when it comes to most shops so I can't nip to Primark for a bargain bra as they just don't cater for the larger bust. Sorry to the blokes reading this review by the way, you can't imagine the trauma involved in bra shopping!
The two pack of bras from George ticked all the boxes for me. First of all they had my size in stock (I'm still not saying!); secondly they were underwired - I just can't wear non underwired bras despite advice to pregnant ladies that you shouldn't wear them; thirdly they were lightly padded without adding to your overall bust size, so not pads like you get in a wonderbra but just a bit spongy material which gives a smooth line with no poking out nipples, I can't stand that!; fourthly, the back strap has three hook and eye connecters, great for a solid connection and less nipping in of the old back fat. Finally, a great price (listed below) which wouldn't break the bank.
The first thing I do when I get a new bra is extend the straps as far as they will go as I always need the extra shoulder room and don't feel the need to hoick up my bosoms around my chin. The white bra in the pack is a bit of a misnomer as there are no spotty patterns on it, instead the top of the cups are edged with pink and there is a pink bow in the middle of the cups. The straps are all white though so great for under strappy vest tops which I wear a lot. The second bra is blue with white spots on and really pretty, it makes me feel so feminine and nice when I wear it!
Wash and wear
I hate it when white bras go that awful grubby colour though as it looks really filthy when they poke out of tops so I always make sure they go in an all-white wash after one to two wears with a bit of vanish in too for good measure! They always come out of the wash in great condition and dry easily too.
Size, availability and price
These two packs of bras are available in a wide ranging 32A to 42F. The price of a two pack is amazing really, at £9 I can't find cheaper bras that are this comfy. I am definitely going to get the floral version asap and chuck out some of the old ones that are in my drawers. You can buy online at ASDA or look in your local store for these bras.
I am so pleased with these bras (can you tell?!) and am thrilled to have discovered them in a size which fits. I just hope that my bust doesn't get any bigger with this pregnancy or I will really be floundering! Thank you George at ASDA for catering for larger busted ladies at a competitive price.
