Bra: c/o The Feather Bra
Have You Heard Of The Feather Bra?
I initially heard of Feather Bra when I saw Lauren (from Lake Shore Lady) and Roxanne (from Glass Of Glam) share a post about the Feather Bra. They were raving about how super comfy this bra was and how it was one of the bras that they didn’t feel the need to take off as soon as they got home. Ladies, we all do it. First thing that comes off, the bra! It feels like a weight is taken off my shoulders and I can breathe. Am I right?
Why I Struggled Finding Bras
So when I heard them say this, I’m thinking to myself wow that is a bold statement. I need to check this bra out. As you all know, I’m constantly on the hunt for comfortable bras. After going through a double (bilateral) mastectomy with immediate reconstruction, I can’t just settle for any bra. They’re even more uncomfortable (extremely uncomfortable).
I’ve been testing out a lot of bras. Some specifically for women who went through a mastectomy and regulars that claim to be comfortable. The timing could not have been more perfect because the Feather Bra team reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try it out. I agreed and tested it out for a month.
The Feather Bra Review
As you can tell by the title of this post, I am impressed. It is extremely comfortable. I tried the Classic Scoop Neck Bra.
The fabric feels very high quality. It has a featherlight fabric that can stretch and mold onto anyone’s body and curves while providing support. It also feels very soft to the skin which is amazing and has that “barely” there feeling. It’s almost like a sports bra, but not as restricting feeling. And obviously the soft fabric is much better.
It’s seamless. So you will not see the lining of the bra through your top, dress, etc. It gives a smooth silhouette.
No wires! Wireless bras to me are the best. My incisions/scars from my surgery are right underneath the breast. So my preference is almost always wireless. The issue with wireless bras is that they don’t have the best support. Well my friends, this one does! It can definitely hold and support my breasts while still being very comfortable. Everything about it fits perfectly.
My bra is only $26.50. That is a steal. How many comfortable & supportive bras do you know are this affordable? For me, that is close to zero (aside from this one). So if you want something budget friendly, then you will be pleased with this bra.
It is also convenient, because you can get it on Amazon. Not every color is on Amazon, but if you need it in a few days and you have Prime membership, it is all yours! You can find the rest of the colors on their official site.
This comes in a variety of colors! The one I’m wearing is in Light Pink, and I also have it in Black. It also comes in Peacoat, Heather Rose, Dusty Blue and Nude. I think the Nude one would be perfect to wear underneath a sheer top!
I’m wearing a size small and my chest size is 32C. So overall I think the bra fitting is true to size. The available sizes are small, medium, large, 1X, 2X, and 3X. Check out their fit guide to determine which size is best for you according to your band size and cup size.
So if the style I’m wearing is not for you there are many other styles to choose from. For instance, if you are looking for bra with a deeper plunge style, you may like the Molded Bra. It has amore contour plunge and somewhat similar looking to the popular lace trimmed, Natori Feathers bra (P.S. Natori bras are way cheaper during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale).
So for anyone that went through a mastectomy and uses a prosthesis, there are pockets where the paddings are placed. Someone recently DM-ed (via Instagram) me and told me they use a sports bra and remove the padding to place their prosthesis. So I’m thinking this can also be done with this bra. I don’t use a prosthesis so I can’t fully advocate for it.
Another bra that is great for anyone that went through a mastectomy (and reconstruction) is this Sophia Rose Bra. However, I do think even if you just have regular breasts (did not go through mastectomy) you’ll enjoy it. It is really pretty!
Hopefully you all find this post to be very helpful. In general, I think the Classic Scoop Neck bra is the perfect t-shirt bra.
I mentioned this in my InstaStory but I will start sharing more bras that I am pleased with. Some are bras I have purchased with my own money and some are partnerships. Regarding the partnerships, I did warn the brands that they will only appear on my blog if I truly find their bras to be comfortable. They know my story and journey and why comfortable bras are a must. They really appreciate it and understand the importance of only talking about bras that I genuinely like.
