Welcome to the Nothing To Wear Edit where each week we curate the best of whatever we spoke about on the podcast.
In the realm of boobs, one undeniable truth emerges: not all chests are created equal. A fact that every woman spilling into C-cup territory will testify to. As a proud member of the 'big titty committee,' with my DD-Es, I can vouch for the occasional perks – swifter service and the occasional free drink. But the myth that a well-endowed bosom instantly ushers in a magical life is, well, just that: a myth.
In reality, my personal Holy Grail comes in the form of a comfy, stylish, and supportive bra. But searching for the perfect fit continues to daunt many. The good news? Bra shopping doesn't have to be intimidating; it's a chance to celebrate your body and access the comfy essentials. Plus, a growing number of brands now offer diverse sizing, granting you access to styles you once considered out of reach – say hello to that soft strapless bra you've been eyeing.
Let's dive into some of my top picks in the world of bras and undies.
