Staying Fit During the Holidays!

With the season’s greetings fast-approaching, the holiday traditions begin, and the food is almost always delectably irresistible. It’s been a really long year filled with many ups and downs, but you’ve managed to stay true to your own health and continued to keep your workout regime in check (some days are better than others). One of the most important things to consider during the holiday season is how hard you have worked this year. You don’t want to let a piece of pie at Thanksgiving ruin your hard work. So, keep your head up and stay on track! We can help you maintain your progress here at aBra4Me.com.

Fortunately, aBra4Me.com offers premium sports bras and form-fitting girdles from your favorite brands that can give you the support and comfort you need to look and feel beautiful to matter what you wear during the holiday season. Many of our sports bras come equipped to perform during your winter workouts and exercise activities. From adjustable gel-cushioned straps help relieve stress on shoulders, to mesh panels to add cool ventilation exactly where you need it, our bras help you stay sweat-free and chafe-free when all you want to do is work out some bottled up winter energy.

In addition to keeping to your everyday workout routine, try switching it up often. It’s fantastic if you decide to keep hustling and maintain your routine throughout the winter. But it’s never a bad thing to bring in some other activities that supplement your daily workout regimen. Think about things that you could do all of the time, not just in winter: take the stairs, travel on foot versus public transit or car, or even taking up a hot yoga class to counteract the bitter cold days. Though, it’s great to be able to get out and get some fresh air whenever possible (even if the temperatures are decreasing).

But we know how it is. It’s the holiday season, and all those delicious treats from friends, family, and co-workers aren’t going to eat themselves. For the days that you just want to feel comfortable, aBra4me.com has a selection of girdles that will provide you with both quality comfort and an overall peace-of-mind. We carry several different styles and brands of girdles that will allow you to simply enjoy the festivities of the season.

With free shipping on orders $100 and above, aBra4me.com has the quality products here for you! For example, we carry hard-to-find Edith Lances bras (which minimize you by up to two sizes), Elila bras (longline strapless bras, rated as the #1 brand for specialty bras), and Barely There bras. You can also find the perfect Rago body shaper to give you the silhouette you want in that special holiday dress.

At aBra4Me, we believe that women should embrace their curves and treat themselves with high-quality bras and other lingerie items that make them feel and look their best. Order directly from our website or give us a call at (866) 227-2463. You can also reach out to us with any questions you may have through the contact form on our website.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

breast cancer awareness image

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, aBra4Me.com would like to draw attention and support for the importance of early detection and treatment of this disease.

Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. According to the U.S. Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, about 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point in their lives.

While this is very alarming, the good news is that when detected early, most women can survive breast cancer with treatment.  We do know that early detection is the number one way you can lower your risk of breast cancer which includes getting regular mammograms.

At aBra4Me, we celebrate women every day, and especially during the month of October. So, before the month is over, we invite you to celebrate yourself with a beautiful bra from Elomi, Edith Lances, or Goddess.

You may want to brighten a special woman in your life’s day with the new Elila1303 bra and panty set featured in the new Fall shade Aubergine or even a gift card from aBra4Me.com. We carry cup sizes ranging from A to O, and our bands that range from 28 inches to 56 inches, so we have the perfect bra for every woman!

Get the Bra that Perfectly Fits Your Body, Style, and Lifestyle

Busy women with demanding lifestyles need can keep up with their daily activities. They should fit correctly, offer a comfortable level of support, and look great under all types of clothing.

For this need, we offer an incredible selection of Edith Lance's bras that can minimize your bust by up to two cup sizes!

Show Your Girls Some Love

When surveying most women on their shopping habits, they will usually admit to spending the least amount of their wardrobe money on their bras.  Purses, shoes, jeans, pants, sweaters, shirts, and other accessories definitely take priority.

Reasons for this can be any of the following:

  1.     Bras aren’t seen by anyone except for self or spouse.
  2.     They aren’t super cute and are usually 100% covered up.
  3.     They get stretched out and dirty.
  4.     Women dislike shopping for bras.

We will go over these one by one.  The first should be the number one reason to buy a beautiful bra.  You should do this for yourself because you’re worth it and want to look great with or without your shirt on.

Second of all, bras come in so many styles, colors and varieties that they are a beautiful fashion statement and can set the tone for the rest of your outfit.

When talking about bras getting stretch out and dirty, doesn’t everything eventually?  Shoes and purses don’t look new forever either. 

Of the four reasons listed, the last holds the most truth as women usually do dread bra shopping.  It can be difficult especially if you don't know what type/style you are looking for, don't know your proper size, or the best places to look for them.

Here are some additional reasons why you should spend more money on. Bras are the MOST important article of clothing you put on.  This single article of clothing is worn every day which is more the reason to strive for quality and comfort.

Bras are the foundation of your complete outfit.  A
properly fitting bra will make you appear thinner and lift your breasts.  This will make your shirts, sweaters, and jackets fit better, and most importantly give you self-confidence and make you feel more gorgeous than any new pair of stilettos will.

You do get what you pay for.  When you buy a cheap bra, don't expect it to last you years.  When you spend more money on a bra, you are more likely to get higher quality material that will last longer.  Also, the way the band and cup lie on your body will fit you better as well as provide more comfort.  When you buy a few quality bras, rotate them, and wash them properly, you can expect them to last at least a year or more.

The size bra you wear is going to make a big difference in the price you pay.  If you are a common size like for instance a 34B, this size is available everywhere so it will cost you a lot less.  Harder to find sizes like 28-32 band sizes and G-K cup sizes will cost more because they are not easily available.

You can definitely get a quality bra from $40-$80.  aBra4Meprovides quality bras for all shapes and sizes.  We offer all of your favorite brands with most at discounted prices.  Feel free to browse our website to find styles you love that will provide comfort and be long-lasting.

The Bras of Summer

T-Shirt Bra
t-shirt bra is a type of bra that boasts comfort. This bra style is usually seamless with molded cups to create a smooth silhouette under your tees.

T-shirt bras are of course great with t-shirts, but also great under any top whether loose or form-fitting.  They are great for all breast shapes and sizes.

One of aBra4me.com’s top-selling t-shirt bras is the Wacoal 85185 and is known for its comfort and smooth style.  A few others to check out are the Wacoal 65124 and 65547  as well as the Elomi 8041.

Racerback bras
Racerback bras have a central strap or two crisscrossing straps that form the shape of a Y or V between the shoulder blades. This bra style is meant to boost support and distribute the weight more evenly along your shoulders and back.

The way the straps sit on the shoulder is more discreet than standard bra styles, so racerback bra types are great for wearing with cold-shoulder, tank tops or sleeveless tops and dresses. 

They work well with all breast shapes and sizes, especially larger breast sizes that could use that added support.

You can make any bra a racerback with aBra4me.com’s 5-Pack Strapper!  It pulls in your existing straps and keeps them together and hidden from view of your Summer outfit.  They also keep your straps from falling down. There is one of each color; nude, taupe, black, brown and white. 

Stick-On Bra
A stick-on adhesive bra is basically a strapless bra without a band. It is pretty straightforward in the sense that you just stick them on your breasts for coverage and a tiny bit of support. 

These are the types of bras you want when you want the coverage of a standard type of bra, and maybe even some cleavage, while wearing something backless or with exposed shoulders. If you just want your nipples covered, a stick-on adhesive type of bra will be your bra of choice

These are also good for all breast shapes and sizes.

aBra4me.com offers a few varieties of stick-on bras.  Take a look at both of our Fashion Forms 16555 and 16846.

Strapless bras
Strapless bras are essentially that; bras without straps that just cover your breasts.  They are usually chosen to accommodate skin-baring outfits and come in regular or longline versions, which may be called bustiers.

Since all the support of a strapless comes from around the band, you may want to go down a band size and up a cup size.  Strapless bras are good for all breast shapes and smaller breast sizes. 

You will want to check out
aBra4me.com’s Goddess 6663 as well as the strapless Carnival Creations 103 and the Carnival Creations 123.

When it’s time to shop for your strapless lingerie, aBra4me.com will have just what you need for under all your tricky Summer pieces.  Never fear, because we are just a click away and will help solve all and any of your bras problems.

Enjoy that weather!

Bra Accessories  

 Nearly Me silicone bra enhancers

So you say, “A bra is just a bra.”  We say “Not so.”  There are many add-ons that can be used to change the look and function of your bra as well as how you look in it.

The right bra accessories may be just what you need for a smooth flawless look. Bra strap converters, clear bra straps, nipple covers, fashion tape and more are just a few of the accessories that can give you a much more seamless appearance.

A very popular bra accessory is a bra enhancer.  These come in foam or silicone materials. Nearly Me 100% silicone gel covered in supple resilient natural-feeling skin, move and feel like natural tissue, add or create cleavage or fuller figure.  They are soft, comfortable and also your best-kept secret.

Certain dresses or tops especially during the Summer months call for the need of a strapless bra or none at all.  For many of us, that is not an option.  Don’t worry.  That is why there are Fashion Forms.  This is the adhesive bra that started it all.  It is perfect for all your daring backless strapless fashions!

Strappers can quickly turn any bra into a racerback.  You won’t get caught with your straps showing with these easy-to-use plastic sliders.  They don’t show under your clothing and are flexible as well as comfortable.

If you’ve gained weight are newly pregnant and feel your bra getting snug, you add a bra extender.  This extends the length of your bra without buying a new one.

You can also keep your beautiful bras clean and lasting longer with special detergent and lingerie bags.

All of these accessories are made to enhance the features of an existing bra and in many cases extend the life of an existing one.  aBra4me.com carries a wide variety of accessories to suit your bra needs.  They are listed on our website under Product Type Tab.

 

Spring Cleaning (your lingerie)

Just like spring cleaning for the rest of your closet, you should do so for your lingerie as well. Most women don’t realize when it’s time to get rid of their bra and purchase a new one. The thing is, there’s no exact timeline when you should get a new bra. It depends on different factors, including how often each bra is worn, and the quality of the bra that you purchased. Bras are not meant to last forever, so we should get to know when it’s time to say goodbye to our favorite ones. Let’s take a closer look at when it’s time to invest in a new bra from abra4me. 

Is your current bra loose even when it’s on the tightest hook? 
A bra should fit snugly against your torso. It shouldn’t be shift or be easily pulled away from your body.

Have the molded cups lost their shape? 
When the cups begin to lose their shape, not only are they unflattering, they no longer support you the way that they should. They begin to become more uncomfortable more they lose their original form. Never put a padded bra in the washer or dryer.  

Does your bra have holes in it? 
Once a bra starts to wear holes into it, the fabric loses its integrity. It’s not just about the bra no longer looking cute anymore.

Are the wires broken or breaking through the cup? 
No one should have to deal with the irritation that a broken wire in a bra can cause. Once it starts breaking through the cup of the bra, it can become a pain in the side quite literally. Always wash bras by hand especially an underwire bra. We also sell mesh lingerie bags if you are going to use a washing machine.

Has your body changed, or do you need a new size? 
Everyone’s body changes throughout time. There is no avoiding it. Sometimes it could mean that you need a new bra size, and sometimes maybe just a new style bra that provides support a little differently than your last.  Gained or lost a few pounds? That might be just enough to change a bra size. 

Are the hooks on your bra broken or ripped out? 
This one may seem obvious, but sometimes it’s just difficult to want to let go of our favorite bra. If it’s not closing properly though, it’s not going to embrace you the way you need it to.  Don’t be upset. Bras are only meant to last 6-9 months depending on your size.

If any of these bra malfunctions are happening to you, then it’s time for you to browse abra4me.com for your next high-quality bra. We have a variety of different types, styles and brands for you to choose from for you to find your perfect fit and your new favorite bra.

Mother's Day

It was Washington Irving who once said “A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still she will cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” Our mothers deserve only the best in life. Which is why our Calida nightgowns are one of the best gifts you can give your mother this Mother’s Day.

These nightgowns are the best quality, they are durable, and they provide exquisite comfort. Made of Egyptian Cotton and lined with a satin trim around the neckline, these gowns are soft and lightweight on your skin. Though, this shouldn’t be a surprise to many since Calida is renowned for their high quality.

Calida is a leading manufacturer in Switzerland and they have an international reputation. They produce beautiful, high-quality lingerie and activewear for women. They create styles that are clean, classic, and stay in style year after year. In fact, we have been selling these nightgowns since we started our business 33 ½ years ago! These nightgowns would provide your mother with the comfort and style that she deserves.

aBra4 Your Wedding Day!

Now that you’ve said “Yes to the Dress!”, you’ll have to figure out what you want to wear underneath it — which is not as easy as it sounds.

With this day being one of the most exciting and important days of your life, we know you want to look stunning but also lifted, contoured and comfortable.

aBra4me.com is here to help you find the perfect bridal undergarments for your special day. Our expert attention to style will help you figure out the right undergarment for your dress.

The popularity of backless, strapless, deep-v, or otherwise skin-exposing gowns lend it more difficult to find a bra that won’t show through when you’re walking down the aisle, let alone moving around and dancing.

Even with that said, bridal undergarments are absolutely a personal choice. The most important factor is that you are comfortable in whatever garments you’ve chosen! We have compiled a variety of our top-sellers below so you can decide what’s best for you.

If your dress is strapless, our most popular backless bra is the Carnival #203. This backless strapless bra hooks at the waist in the back, has cups lightly lined with fiberfill, is sleek and smooth with a sweetheart neck line. It is made of double-knit nylon and lightly lined with fiberfill and has
strategically placed front boning providing extra tummy control. It also has a 2” elastic waistband to prevent ride up.

The Carnival #206 is another backless strapless bra with an invisible plunge neckline. It is extremely smooth as it is made of silk microfiber. It has molded demi cups to create a sleek look even under the sheerest fabric.

Another we recommend is the Carnival #237 backless and strapless longline bra. It’s tuxedo style, light lining in cups and deep plunge front and back give you the perfect contour and fit while providing that extra tummy control. It also has a 2” elastic waistband to prevent ride up.

Unlike most places, aBra4me.com.com is the place for the full-figured bride too. Our Elila 6621 and 6421 goes up to H cups and holds unparalleled in the market. They also have a covered bottom band to the hip for an invisible look.

aBra4me.com carries a variety of strapless bras to for your special day. Be sure to visit our Bridal Collections product page to find what’s best for you. We also have body shapers, underwear, bustiers and other undergarments to suit your fancy.

Choosing the Right Nursing Bra

Nursing Bra

Breast changes begin in the first trimester of pregnancy, and most mothers outgrow their pre-pregnancy bras right along with their skinny jeans. If you’re buying new bras during pregnancy, make sure to buy ones that FIT. Do not buy loose bras or nursing bras because you always want to make sure your breast tissues are held properly and supported. Save all bras as you will be able to wear at some point in your breastfeeding career and as you lose weight after birth.


What Kind of Bra To Buy?

Nursing bras are designed with cups that open. You can open the flap on the cup so that baby can nurse while the rest of the bra stays in place. Here’s what to look for when you shop:

  • Flaps should be easily opened with one hand. If you can refasten them with one hand, that’s even better depending on your cup size. Remember, your other arm will be holding a hungry baby. For discreet nursing in public, choose a bra with fasteners that you can open without looking at them.

  • The bra should support the breast from beneath even when the cup is open. This makes feeding more comfortable and reclosing the bra less of a struggle.
     
  • Avoid bras that open completely at the front for a feeding. You’ll have a hard time wrestling your breasts back into place when you’re done nursing 

  • Nursing bras should fit comfortably. Bras that are too tight can leave you vulnerable to plugged ducts and breast infections in the parts of the breast where straps or underwires block the flow of milk.
     
  • If you do choose an underwire bra, be very particular about the fit. The breast’s milk-producing tissue extends all the way back to your rib cage and up into your armpit. Depending on your shape and if your stomach is high, you may not be able to wear an underwire.  Don’t be upset.  All nursing styles we carry are VERY strong and supportive as if you are wearing a wire.
     
  • Cups should be made of a breathable fabric. This is usually 100 percent cotton or microfiber although some of the newer synthetics also allow the skin to breathe. Other synthetics trap moisture next to the nipples and encourage bacterial growth and soreness. Don’t buy a bra with a plastic lining.
     
  • You’ll need at least three bras: one to wear, one in the laundry, and one in the drawer. Owning a few more means you’ll have to wash less often.

  • At first buy only one of a particular style, to test it. When you find a bra you really like, purchase more of that style.

 

What Size?

How do you know what size bra to buy? Since breasts change dramatically postpartum, here are some helpful guidelines:

  • Your breasts will enlarge as your milk “comes in” after birth, so perhaps purchase one or two cup size bigger than what you’re wearing. These will get you through your first several weeks postpartum.  Your rib cage will decrease once the baby is born so do not buy a larger rib cage.

  • When your breast size settles down, usually after the second week, purchase additional bras that fit well.

  • Most nursing bras have several rows of hooks at the back to allow for changes in breast size and in rib cage expansion during pregnancy. If you buy a bra that fits well when fastened on the second row of hooks, you’ll have room to get a bit bigger and a bit smaller. Because the flaps are open on the sides, there’s also some room for expansion in the cups of most nursing bras.

  • Large breasted women need a bra with extra support.  We have them up to an M cup.
     

Do You Really Need A Nursing Bra?

Some mothers prefer to wear a nursing bra while they are breastfeeding. They’re more comfortable with the added support of a nursing bra. For others, especially those who are smaller-breasted, become more casual about bras as time goes on. Some women even choose to go braless.  This is a bad idea because the weight of the milk will pull your breast down and tear your tissues.  Others may choose stretchy non-nursing bras that can be lifted above the breast and then pulled back into place after feeding.

Do you absolutely need the support of a good bra while breastfeeding? Will it prevent sagging and stretching? YES!  Always support your breast no matter an A to an M cup.  Not doing so will tear tissues from the inside even if you can see it on the outside.

 

Where To Buy?

You can buy nursing bras online at aBra4Me.com. They provide options that feature necessary qualities in pretty styles that you'll feel good about wearing.
