Bra Review: Bali Comfort Revolution Shaping Wirefree (3488), Smart Size S

I’ve never reviewed a “matrix sized” bra from a department store before… until now! Since finding out my actual (comfortable) bra size and learning that I was sized out of most brands, I’ve relied wholly upon UK and Polish fuller bust brands. Matrix and/or S/M/L sizes have long been off my radar entirely.

Bra Review: Victoria Sport Lightweight by Victoria Secret, 32D & 32DD

I’ve never reviewed anything by Victoria Secret before, and if you had asked me a year or two ago, I probably wouldn’t have considered it a possibility. However, by some unforeseen planetary alignment, I can now sister-size myself just within the size range of this retail giant. When I visited the US at the end of the summer, I had left my sports bras in the UK, so I took the opportunity to cash in on free shipping in the Victoria’s Secret semi-annual sale.

I’m excited to introduce another Polish lingerie brand in this post. I tried my first Gorsenia bra in the beginning of 2017, but it didn’t work out and I didn’t have the chance to try again at the time.
