My New Marks & Spencer Bra

Since I stopped breastfeeding Little E a few months ago my 'babylons' have completely deflated. I've been left feeling quite self conscious about the shrinkage and having also recently lost weight, my bras no longer fit.

A couple of weeks ago I headed to my local M&S store to buy a new bra. I didn't really know what I was looking for so I decided to ask to be fitted. Within a couple of minutes I knew my new size and went off to find a new brassiere.

I wandered round, spoiled for choice when eventually I laid eyes on this one...

...the Underwired Ruched Front Bra. I decided to take it to the fitting area to check that it fitted and I almost didn't want to take it off. It's one of THE most comfortable bras I have ever owned.

At £18 (currently now only £9 in the sale), it's a little more than I would usually spend on an everyday bra but the comfort is worth every penny. The greatest feature would have to be the wide straps - the extra width ensures that they don't cut in to you like a regular bra.

The bra itself looks just  like a bikini top and is made up of 59% polyamide, 21% elastane and 20% polyester.
For me, it's great to have the plunge effect and added padding whilst I get used to my new smaller shape and it has given me a confidence boost.

The fit is really flattering and it's the perfect t-shirt bra, giving you a great smooth shape without flattening.

I would highly recommend you to purchase one of your own - especially whilst they're on sale. The bra comes in 2 colours - white and black - and would make a fabulous adition to your underwear drawer.

And if you're pregnant and looking for a new bra then you should definitely check out Marks and Spencers new Maternity Bra Advice Tool...

Disclosure: I received a £20 M&S voucher to enable me to purchase and review a bra from the M&S Collection.
