My bra’s back clasp is always hovering 2 inches above the rest of it. What gives?

Every woman, at some point in her life or perhaps daily, has wondered while wearing an underwired bra, is this really necessary? We can confidently say, yes it is! Underwired bras are definitely better for support and overall control over your chest than soft cup bras are.
I hear endless complaints about how an underwired bra feel like B-prison. Well, they don’t have to! The first thing you need to do is find your correct size. Wearing the right sized underwired bra will make all the difference in how you feel in it during the day. A major point to keep in mind is the quality of underwire of the bra. When picking an underwired bra style, try to twist and turn the wire gently. If it moulds easily without a lot of strength, you’ve got a winner! If it’s hard and does not, put it aside. At Buttercups, I ensure we use the most flexible yet strong wires, to ensure comfort and great support. (more…)
In week three of our ongoing Bra Stories series, we check out two very seductive bra styles, the Demi and the Plunge!
Have you got that one gorgeous, low necked blouse, that gives you an alluring look and is just perfect for date night or a sophisticated evening out? Pick up a demi bra to complete your flawless look! A Demi is a low cut bra that only partially covers your chest, with wide set straps to accommodate low and wide necklines, while giving your cleavage a great look. Demi actually means ‘half’ in French so it’s a pretty apt name for the cut and coverage of this bra. (more…)
In part two of our ongoing series, we take a closer look at Strapless and Adhesive bras. Yep, this one’s about bras without straps!
Sometimes, going bare shouldered, with a spring in your step and a toss of hair over your shoulder is a fabulous feeling. And when you go strapless, you need a supportive strapless bra! Be it sleeveless dresses, tank tops, tube tops, halter tops, sundresses or strapless evening gowns, all of them demand a well fitting strapless bra to look their best. Please don’t wear bras with straps under any of these styles, and especially not those transparent straps! (more…)
