A while ago JML sent me a Belvia Bra to review. The Belvia Bra is apparently designed with comfort in mind. It has no seams, wires or hooks and is made from a unique stretch fabric that will mould to your shape giving you a smooth fit.
I always have problems getting a bra that is comfortable. The wires dig in, the straps fall down, they are too tight and it is a lot of trouble getting the right size. These come in dress sizes, so you just pick up the right size and it is guaranteed to fit. It saves a lot of messing around measuring above and below your chest trying to work out what cup size you are. If you are dieting and losing weight this would be ideal as it will continue to fit as you lose weight. It would also be ideal for pregnant ladies who often find their chest becomes more ample as pregnancy progresses.
The Belvia bra comes in several different colours, you can choose from white, black, beige, pastel blue, pastel pink and pastel purple. I was sent the beige colour to try. When taken out of it’s packet the Belvia bra does not look very glamorous, it looks a little shapeless and reminds me a bit of a gym top.
When I put it on though I was very pleased with the result, it moulds itself round your body like a second skin giving you shape and lift. It is also incredibly comfortable to wear, in fact it feels like you are not wearing a bra at all. This is great as find a lot of bras tend to dig in and you are always aware that you are wearing them. I was not at all surprised to find that JML have sold over a million of these bras since they launched them, they are really comfortable while providing support and shape.
The Belvia bra is machine washable as well (and I know I am not going to find the wires in the washing machine later!) The washing instructions are cleverly printed on the bra instead of on a label which is ideal. I often find labels stick out and annoy me. The only problem with the Belvia bra they are not so good to wear under sun tops due to the shape but that is not really a problem at this time of year. I did find that it wasn’t as supportive as my normal bra, but the website does say that if you find this is the case then just wear two to get extra support.
You can find more information about the Belvia Bra on the JML website. They are RRP £12.99 for one or you can get a 4 pack for £38.97
