In Search of The Perfect Everyday Bra

Come out come out, wherever you are! Calling all comfortable, supportive, and pretty everyday bras! Are you out there? 

Anywhere? 

Hello? 

This is how I’ve felt pretty much the majority of my adult life. I always just chalked it up as part of being a woman. The search for the perfect everyday bra has been an age old journey. Honestly, until recently, I had been wearing the same two everyday bras I bought in college simply because nothing else I ever tried on worked. 

(DID I REALLY JUST BROADCAST THAT ON THE INTERNET?)

I felt like goldilocks. This bra was too tight, that one rode up in the back. There were those with too much padding, and others which had no padding, but not enough support. Not to give you too vivid of a picture–but I felt like I was in this weird, forgotten about in between place, and no bras seemed to fit me. Nothing was “just right.” 

I was constantly wondering to myself, “WHERE on earth were all the supportive, non-padded, comfortable bra’s that didn’t look like they were made for Great Grandma?!” 





Fast forward several years into my “well fitting bra” search, when I happened to make a new friend at an event I attended–she worked for a brand called Soma. We were chatting about work, travel, making small talk, and so on–and I admitted to the fact that I really knew very little about the brand. She started raving about their bras and underwear, and how they were different than what you’d find anywhere else. (Was this finally the answer to my prayers?) “Sure–she works there. Of course she’s passionate about the Soma brand,” I thought. For me though? I wasn’t going to hold my breath.

Then she sent me a package so I could try some products out for myself. Needless to say, I was finally able to throw out those old standby bras! Comfortable, practical, and pretty–this brand is the real deal, you guys. 

While I now have a few bras of theirs that I like, their new Enticing Lift Unlined Full Coverage Bra is the ideal combination of all of the above–comfortable, pretty, supportive, with no extra bulk. For those who have trouble finding the perfect balance of all of these qualities, the answer could lie right here

This full-coverage bra provides the lift of a push-up, without any padding. The straps are slightly wider than most, to provide added support. The lace makes it ultra pretty and feminine, but it’s flat–so it’s undetectable under even the thinnest t-shirt. Plus, the bra comes in several pretty colors, like the coral you see here, plus nude and black, if that’s more your style. (Sizing tip: It does run large, so you may need to size down! They currently offer free shipping + returns, so I would order a few sizes to give you some room to try on and keep what fits best! Or you could go into a local boutique for a fitting.) 

I also love the undies that match the bra (they come in bikini, boy short, and thong varieties!) I love that they’re just as comfortable as cotton, but the lace is so much prettier, don’t you think? These are also my favorite to sleep in! (P.S. right now, you can also get a pair free with a full price bra purchase! What’s better than free undies?) 





So–will this bra finally be the answer to your prayers? You’ll have to try it for yourself!
