Going wireless with 36H boobs is a daunting prospect. Wearing a wireless bra often means sacrificing on support and uplift. But then Sugar Candy came along, and changed the fuller bust game!
Let us face it, big boobs can be tiring. They are heavy. In fact, it has been suggested that my H cup boobs weight the same as two large pizzas. That is a lot of weight to carry around every day and even the comfiest, most supporting wired bras can cause chaffing or discomfort.
I am one of those people who loves little more than wiping their bra off at the end of the day and letting their boobs hang out. People just have to put up with the clapping noises as I run up and down the many steps in my house.
But now, with a couple of Sugar Candy Bras in my lingerie wardrobe, I am promised all the comfort of being braless in the house, whilst wearing a bra …
Original: Fuller Bust Seamless Bra
The Sugar Candy Bra is a seamless bra for the fuller bust, ‘designed to provide women with unrestricted, seamless comfort and support’.
The cups of the bra are constructed from one piece of knitted fabric of a nylon x elastane composition. There are support slings, of the same material, on the inside of the fabric. These slings are designed to give added support and support and uplift. The under-band is constructed from a concealed elastic under-band with darting added to the cups to create the illusion of a central gore. The straps are wide and supportive with the option to cross them for a racer back.
I will admit, I was sceptical about the idea of a seamless and wireless bra offering support. I have tried many bralettes over the years and rarely do they provide much in terms of uplift. More often than not, wireless bras just push my breast down and wrinkle around the band.
The Sugar Candy bra does neither of these things!
It generally lifts my boobs, lifting them up and sculpting them forwards by means of the interior slings. The back band, enclosed by a 5-hook fastening, is wide enough to support the breast tissue and prevent any folding or wrinkling. The wide shoulder straps lie flat against the skin and scarcely apply pressure to the shoulder points – proving how well this bra is constructed.
In fact, what I thought to be a sleep bra (something for wearing around the house) has quickly become my go-to bra for weekend activities.
Sugar Candy Crush
In fact, the Sugar Candy Bra is so supportive, that I have even used it for Yoga.
The Crush, which is the latest model of the Sugar Candy line, is perfect for daily yoga practice. It has the same structure as the original but it is designed in retro colours with contrasting trims that really pop beneath your gym gear.
The bra is not a traditional sports bra. It allows some movement of the breast as you move. But for yoga, that movement is perfect as it allows an increased flexibility that a conventional sports bra can restrict.
I am wearing an XL in both Sugar Candy bras. This equates roughly to a 36H on their sizing chart. The size range (XS – XXL) covers band sizes 30 – 42 and cup sizes F – L. I feel there would be some forgiveness in the size range due to the stretch fabric that makes this bra.
The Original Bra retails at £39.90 and the Crush at £43.90. This means that the Sugar Candy bra isn’t the cheapest of bras on the market. It is, however, great value for money.
The bra is durable, washable, comfortable and supportive. Whoever would have thought I could say all those things about a wireless bra?
