The 24/7 bra

Posted

Pros: Good support, high quality, and lasts a couple years

Cons: Only basic colors available.

I have been wearing this bra since my first was born in 2006. I have since tried other bras, yet always come back to this one. These bras last around 3 years each, that is with a stash of only 4-5 at a time and getting washed and hung to dry repeatedly and wearing them 24/7. I am now on my 3rd stash, as I am now expecting my 3rd child in February. I have tried the silk bra in the past few months, that Bravado offers also, but it is worn only for special occasions. I really wish they would offer more of a selection of bras in larger sizes. I am blessed that this size fits me, otherwise I don't know what I would be wearing!

The regular and plus sizes have a "cross-over" style that is more attractive under clothing. The double-plus, industrial strength version comes up very high in the...
