Generally I'm not one to post about my body on here and especially not my bust area, well apart from if it relates to my breastfeeding journey I guess. However, recently I was contacted about trying out the Freya Utopia Bra set, and well I jumped at the opportunity.
I've always had problems with bra fittings, simply going to the stores and having the recommended sizes that was that. Until I had Isla and I was looking for advice on sizing whilst feeding and I was recommended to a site, in which I discovered I've been wearing the wrong size for years! Ok, the size it told me I really didn't believe so ordered one in that size and honestly it was the comfiest I've ever worn. So this opportunity was perfectly timed with my changing bust size.
When I received the Freya Utopia it was nothing like I'm used to wearing, and certainly nothing like I've worn for over the past year. I was curious how it would look and feel when on, how it would make me look. Luckily, the fit and style were amazing, initially it felt strange firstly its underwired but it also has no padding at all, most nursing bras do. It was very comfortable to wear all day, and to take part in daily activities too. The support in which was provided was excellent staying exactly where it was supposed too. I felt I was supported the whole day and due to the cup design we stayed in place with no mishaps.
Along with the bra, I was sent a matching pair of briefs too, there are different styles which match so perfect to make a set for use. Again, these were comfortable when on and stayed in place during the day.
As with all clothing products I find it important to test the wash too. This set washed really well, after drying the colours have remained lovely and bright, and no shape has been lost. Some cheaper brands can often loose shape and elasticity during washing periods so its always good when it stays in great condition.
One thing I really like is that I now feel that I can be the old me and not only be practical but also have a little style underneath but keeping me in place.
Lingerie By Victoria, who offered this set, stock a large range of bras, briefs and swimwear and offer a variety of brands. Not only this but they offer a wide range of band sizes as well as cup sizes. One thing I struggle with now is being able to find a larger cup supplier with reasonable prices and Lingerie By Victoria definitely fits this.
