Now as a woman with big boobs bra shopping has never been a fun experience.
I developed boobs early and by high school I already had the nick name Dolly (for those not from the 80’s this refers to Dolly Parton and her surgically enhanced chest).
Pretty bras that all my friends were wearing were never an option for me – my bras were all about thick straps and nude colour. And don’t get me started on the whole changing room experience. I’m sure we all have a story from that first bra fitting – it was like a right of passage into womanhood.
So when I was contacted to see if I was interested in seeing and trying on a bra from Intimo I jumped at the chance to try on a bra in the comfort and privacy of my own home.
For choosing your Intimo bra you have a couple of different options available
- One on one consultation
- A get together with a few of your girlfriends
- Mail order.
I had a one on one consultation with the lovely Carys – being able to come home from a day at work and try on bra’s with out having to hold closed the curtains of the changing room hoping that no one was going to pull them open at the wrong moment was bliss.
Now Carys really knows her stuff she came in with her bag of pretty things took a quick measurement and pulled out a bra size and style that she thought would be me.
I was slightly dubious as I have always had to try on multiple bra styles and sizes before finding one that actually fit.
Carys choose the Smooth Contour Bra in 34E for me and it was the perfect fit.
I have 4 requirements of any bra to consider it the perfect fit – it has to lift, separate, support and be comfortable to wear all day without digging in. This bra ticked all the boxes.
So once I had the style down I just had to pick the colour – who knew that you could have options of colour and print for a bra that was in the E cup range.
For me picking pattern/colour was a no brainer as soon as I saw the Inprint (a snake print inspired set) I didn’t bother looking any further – I’m a sucker for animal print in all its shapes and forms. I also choose the matching pants – I find wearing a matching set of lingerie has such an luxurious feel to it.
BELOW: Smooth Contour Bra – Inprint $95.00 sizes 32-38D-EE, 40C-EE & 42D-EE | matching Biniki Brief $35.00
I also tried on the Intimo Strapless Bra – finding the perfect strapless bra is a whole other world of pain. When I say pain I really mean pain – history has been that to find a strapless bra that has any chance of holding everything up means tight and uncomfortable.
The Intimo Strapless Bra had the right amount of hold with good boob coverage – no problems with anything falling out. This bra is on my must have list for summer to wear with my summer dresses and off the shoulder tops.
BELOW: Convertible Contour Bra – Nude $95.00 sizes 30A-D, 32-34A-E & 36-40B-E
And lastly the sports bra – I exercise with boot camp a couple of times a week so need something that gives me the support that I need while jumping, running, skipping and whatever other form of torture my PT decides is good for us.
My daughter actually told me a couple of weeks ago that my current sports bra situation is not working and everything is bouncing around, it was all a bit too much a solution was needed.
Intimo has 3 different options for sports bras depending on the support you need.
Carys recommended the High Impact Bra $95.00 it comes in sizes 30-34 A-F, 36B-F and 38-46C-F. After my experience with my everyday bra I trust Carys knows exactly what she is talking about – so a High Impact Bra is on its way to me now. Once I receive it I will let you know if this lives up to my expectations.
