Spaghetti Straps, strapless bras and bigger busts

 

wonderbra strapless braI’ve been getting a lot of questions about how I wear thin strapped tops which I was actually really surprised by. I totally forgot about all my strapless bra woes as I found the perfect solution a few years ago and haven’t looked back! I was particularly shocked by the amount of people which have told me that they don’t wear strapless or thin strapped tops because of strapless bra problems!

So what’s the solution?

The Ultimate Strapless Bra by Wonderbra! Not a sponsored post, I just really think it’s the best strapless bra out there.

It has these hand-like cushions which help keep your boobs up and in place, it’s not as extreme as a push-up bra but it adds just the right amount of lift. My issue with strapless bras previously was that my boobs looked squashed and I totally don’t have that issue with this bra! It doesn’t slip, has a wider back making it very supportive and fairly comfortable. My only negative is that as it does have rubber non-slip support band around your ribs it can get a little uncomfortable in extreme heat but all strapless bras I’ve seen have this. I had blisters once when I wore it for 12 hours in 30C heat but I’ve learnt my lesson. I now spray deodorant onto the rubber part to stop that happening and have had no issues since.

All-in-all I can’t recommend this bra enough, it’s changed my summer wardrobe completely and is worth the investment! I can’t really comment on what it’s like for smaller boobs but I can’t see why it wouldn’t work well too.

Also, I think they fit fairly true to size, maybe slightly on the smaller side, so if you’re in-between sizes I would recommend sizing up and I got a 32FF.

PS. I just read that there is a new design, I don’t think it would have changed too much but I’m yet to try it.

    Its so odd I read this and think I can relate when really I have a normal 34D chest, so it really isn’t too much of an issue for me. Growing up my mum always had a 32/34FF chest and at 5ft tall it pretty much takes up her tiny frame! I still remember the battle she had with strapless. I remember wearing a black one on my head saying I was Minnie mouse… my poor Mum lol. But she loves this one, and she loves a super expensive one she got from Rigby and Peller. Which she likes cause the queen uses them haha. she says it feels like air holding your boobies. So if you are on the hunt for something new try them 🙂

    You have no idea how valuable this post is to me! Your boobs look amazing in that picture (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy lol) and if that wonder bra is responsible, I NEED it. Thank you so, so much for sharing!!

    I’ve heard so many good things about this bra but it doesn’t go big enough for me!!!

    Wow! Thanks for recommending this bra because as a person with large bust, it can be quite challenging finding the right bra. I’ve gone through so many strapless bras 🙁

    Have a great day!

    Looking very boobalicious! I don’t like wearing strapless tops or dresses because of the whole bra issue, so this would be great for me. I don’t think we get Wonderbra here though…

    That is my favourite, and only, strapless bra too! However I wouldn’t wear it for everyday as the band is so tight it hurts my back. It is great for holding boobs up, not just letting them sag down, or even fall out, like in most strapless bras! Unfortunately I still don’t trust spaghetti straps…
