I have been following a few fuller bust bra models/bloggers on Instagram for a while now for inspiration and also admiration for putting themselves “out there” showing the world that curvy models with a fuller bust are just as sexy as the “normal” (way to skinny if you ask me) models we all see in magazines and on billboards. It’s nice to see the “bigger” size models who are still a healthy size 12 and not big in my eyes at all on some of the runways and advertising nowadays because believe me when I say that there are plenty of men out there who like something to hold on and cuddle! In Bavaria we like to say: Sie hat Hoiz vo da Hüttn! – Sie hat Holz vor der Hütte! – which literally translates to “she’s got wood in front of the hut“ or in other words: she has big boobs.
From age 14 I was a D cup and I never fitted in the average size bracket even less so when I grew older. Since having my second child Molly-May in 2014 I have been living in my nursing bra’s at nighttime even after she stopped breastfeeding close to her turning 1. Due to her using my boobs as a “comforter” at night I had no choice then go to sleep with a bra unless I wanted to get boobie pinched by her (sorry about the TMI!) I have searched for quite a while now in shops and online for a ‘sleep bra’ for my size which was wireless but non nursing because my clever little girl figured out way too quickly that she could unclip the straps of my bras and thought it was a rather fun game! Unfortunately my search was unsuccessful and the only thing I found on the market was a maternity bra from a very expensive brand but I could not justify the nearly £50 price tag just for it to be used to sleep in. A few weeks back I spotted the Sugar Candy Bra on Instagram and could not wait to try it out for myself not only does Sugar Candy promise to have created a luxury seamless bra for fuller busted woman to provide comfort and support which a lot of BF mums out there can probably agree on is lacking in the normal nursing bra departments:
Sugar Candy have succeeded in ending my hunt for an unwired but comfortable seamless bra which offers support enough to be used for not only night-time but also those very rare “lazy PJ at home days”. I received the black version in a size XL for my 36H bust.
So here is a run down on all the brilliant featured you get with the bra! Next to wide straps, ultrasoft fabric, extra support panels and a secure large underband it also features a wide 6x hook and eye closure at the back. The 6 available sizes XS-XXL suit over 35 cup and band size combinations. Another cool thing is that the wide straps have a hook on the back so the bra can also be worn crossed at the back! Its made out of 90% Nylon, 10% Elastane and ultra-soft, mercerized micro yarn for tensile strength:
My verdict on the Sugar Candy seamless everyday bra for fuller busted woman?
Sugar Candy use two layers of fabric so the frame of the bra is densely bound with internal wire mimicking structure panels and stabilizers for support and structure in the under bust and although it gives an amazing shape and support I did find it a tad too warm wearing at nighttime on a hot summer night (in Germany) underneath my PJ top (nothing I couldn’t correct with simply taking of the top and just sleeping in the bra instead) But on the other hand that means the bra will keep me nice and warm come winter which is a massive plus to me! Sizing wise I felt it was a tiny bit snug underneath my arms so I just used an extender hook to make it a tad looser. I don’t mind it being a little bit snug because I have high hopes of loosing some pounds soon and the first weight that falls off me is on my face and boobs (fingers crossed for success soon!) I am still amazed by how much it actually supports my large chest and what a nice shape it gives me! I feel comfortable enough to actually wear it out which I never thought I would with it not being a wired bra! I wore it on our plane trip home from Germany a few days ago because it’s all about comfy clothes when I am on a plane with the kids and then have another 1.5 hours in the car to head back home to the coast! I thought I do a little comprising picture of me with a normal wired bra and the seamless Sugar Candy Bra from a side and front view for you all:
I actually think that the Sugar Candy Bra makes my boobs a nicer shape then my normal wired bra!
Yes the £39.90 price tag might seem steep at first glance but I wouldn’t hesitate in spending it for this kind of bra which gives me a good nights sleep and those slightly embarrassing moments when you open the door for the postman in the morning in PJ’s and ill fitted nursing bras!
So for me its time to say goodbye to my old nursing bras who are all too small anyway (oh yes I was one of those ‘lucky’ woman who lost weight – due to bad sickness in my pregnancies and whilst BF) and say hello to my lovely new supportive Sugar Candy Bra:
The seamless everyday fuller bust bra which comes in sizes XS to XXL in black and nude is available to purchase at the Sugar Candy Shop for £39.90!
