When I hear the words "strapless bra," I can't hide my terror. I cannot count the number of days I have spent constantly pulling at my bra to stop it from falling down (NOT CUTE). The struggle is real, but with so many cute Bardot dresses and off-shoulder tops out there, finding a good strapless bra is simply mandatory.
Did you know 80% of the women are wearing the wrong bra size? And up until a few days ago, I was a part of those 80% women. However, getting a bra fitting from TKD Lingerie – the first lingerie store in the UAE exclusively for women with a bigger bust – changed my life!
Here's what I learned from my bra fitting:
1. Your bra band should neither be too tight, nor too loose.
2. The center of your bra should lay flat, in between your boobs, against your body. If the center of your bra is lifted off your chest, it is the wrong size.
3. If your straps keep falling down, you are wearing the wrong bra size.
4. The cups of your bra should hold your boobs fully. If there is space between the cup and the boob, you are wearing the wrong size.
After trying over 4 bras, I finally chose the Luxe Black Strapless Bra (AED 255) by a brand called Curvy Kate. Guys, this bra is magic. I wore it under an off shoulder top(pictured below) for a ten hour shoot day and guess how many times I had to readjust my bra? ZERO!
In addition to carrying bra sizes from D-K cup, TKD Lingerie carries a wide range of plus size swimwear from awesome brands like Curvy Kate Swim, Audelle Swim, Cleo and more. Here are two super-cute swimsuits that I picked up from TKD.
Here's to never having to adjust your bra in public again!
