The Brayola Girls Share What They ♥

You don’t often see all the brayola girls in one room at the same time…so we’ve done the best we can by bringing them all together for our Valentines Special :) We are sharing all of our secret bra loves, and sharing which bras we think are the sexiest right now!



That’s me! I absolutely adore the Jena bra by Agent Provocateur. As a girl who wishes she was slightly more well endowed this is the perfect bra. Beautiful silky satin, in a Bandeau style bra with hidden underwire. Half cup, gives Hook and eye opening at the centre front temptingly lets you reveal what’s underneath.





Our beautiful CEO, shares some of her Valentines Secrets, revealing that she’s had her eyes on the Eberjey bra ever since we posted about it on facebook last week. She loves the color and how absolutely adorable it is! The Theodora balconette features all-over sheer stretch lace for a comfortable, gorgeous fit. We love this bra, as an effortlessly sexy bra!


Our Boston Beauty, has selected the ever so gorgeous Freya bra. Alexis told me she’s thought the piper bra is a stunning bra that not only looks great but is also going to be super comfortable. In a gorgeous floral print, the Freya Piper Underwired Balcony Bra is adorned with contrasting lace and pretty bows. Providing great uplift and support, this bra features underwiring, non-padded cups and adjustable straps.




Amazing Andrea, has gone for a bra in the new UK’s Kelly Brook range! This bra is a super seductive satin plunge bra, with contrast satin trim to cups, with the really pretty bow detail in the center


The latest member of the gang, ketty has picked the ever so beautiful Chantelle Rive Gauche Demi Bra. This bra comes in many different colors, but we decided to show a picture of the pink one (with it being Valentines day and all!) This cute Chantelle half cup bra is unpadded with underwired cups lined with supportive mesh. Fashioned from semi-sheer lace, it has contrast stitching decorating the twin straps and is adorned with a bow at the centre.




Our magical Margot, with super hero powers chose the uber sexy Passionata bra from their new collection, the Malice Push Up bra. Margot loves Passionata by Chantelle because she thinks they are flirty with a seductively playful twist, and this bra is no exception!



Luscious Lital, went for the super cool Marlies Dekkers Space Odyssey Push-Up Underwire bra (as seen on such celebs as Britney Spears & Lady Gaga!)This bra just oozes coolness (and is surprisingly comfortable!) Marlies Dekkers is known for her futuristic designs making a statement! This bra has a graduated push up, giving you a natural lift, and foam lift pads for extra added comfort! We love the amazing selection of colors this bra comes in :)



Our little superstar Melanie, has also gone for a Passionata by Chantelle bra similar to Margot! The Passio Cherie Demi Bra is again super sexy
and lightweight, breathable bra which features molded, underwire cups with a 2-part tulle cup. The embroidered tulle floral lace overlay that extends onto the strap fronts and acts as a side support panel is what makes this bra so special :)


We hope you enjoyed our Valentines day special :) Happy Valentines day Brayolistas








Bust Sizes Are Booming!

You may remember our previous post that gave you an explanation as to why you’re bust fits into different sizes in different brands, but there may be another reason why this happens.

If you’ve ever had one of those frustrating bra shopping experiences where it seems that nothing fits, it turns out that you’re not alone! In a survey put on by British store Debenhams, it showed that 78 percent of women have been trying to squeeze into bras that were smaller than the size they SHOULD be wearing. That’s a lot of uncomfortable women.

This survey also found that women aren’t just squishing into smaller sizes, but British busts have actually grown in the past two years. Back in 2010, Debenhams reported that their best-selling size was a 34B, but in 2012, the most popular is a 34DD–that’s an increase of three whole sizes!

Another interesting point was that women aren’t physically increasing their bust size (as numbers may suggest)–they’re shopping to create the figure they desire the most (watch out Beyonce, there’s a hoard of women coming after your physique)! The store reported that 70 percent of their bra sales have been for padded and push-up bras as compared to 36 percent in 2010. Debenhams’ head of lingerie buying and design, Sharon Webb, commented on the trend: “Sales suggest that breasts are bigger and better than ever before”.

“Confidence is changing the shape of the nation. Fit is of paramount importance, a great fitting bra makes you look incredible on the outside and feel fabulous on the inside,” continues Webb, “If women want a bit of enhancement then they can invest in a simple padded or push up bra and see instant results by the fasten of a clasp – no expensive surgery required.”

We agree that the best enhancement is the one found in your bra drawer! So, here’s one of our favorite push-up bra picks… is it in your brayola drawer?
