Grab a Handful

So if you've had children, than, like me, your bra size has probably changed a bunch of times, and like me, you probably have a drawer full of bras that don't fit properly.

Not only do I have a bra drawer to clean out, but I have a great deal of difficulty finding bras that fit properly and are comfortable.  I have a small band size and larger cup size, and this particular combination is impossible to find anywhere except expensive bra boutiques, but then the available styles are usually butt-ugly and/or uncomfortable due to underwire, hooks, clasps, etc.  I have very sensitive skin and easy get irritated from lace, tags, etc.  I've discovered that I favour the wireless pull-over-your-head kind of bra instead of the ones that you undo.  Unfortunately, most of the ones you find in stores are 'bralettes' and meant for women with a very small cup size, offering almost no support.  Definitely not what an active, ehm, top-heavier person like me needs.

A few years ago I bought a bunch of Genie bras, and while they are comfortable, they have very wide straps which means I can't wear them with a lot of things (tank tops, boat neck tops, etc.).  But the rest of my bras are either too big, too small, or just plain uncomfortable.  So, out with the old, in with the new!

After some extensive research, I decided to buy some Handfuls.  Yep, silly name, but I LOVE THEM!  They are super comfy and fit perfectly, offering a lot of support  I can wear them with more of my clothes too.  They come in a ton of colours (I got white, grey and black because I'm boring) and tank tops too.

There is only one place selling them in Canada, a store in Calgary, but they arrived fast and they included a personal thank you for my business and some chocolate (!).  Wow.

Not cheap these babies, but good bras never are.  Anyhoo, I highly recommend.
