the three bras you need if you’re big busted

 

after 17+ years of bra-shopping, I’ve finally found the three bras that flatter, fit, and support my large bust. and now, being pregnant and having even a bigger bust, these bras are still standing the test.

I’m always asked what kind of bras I wear, so I figured I would make a complete blog post about them. here they are:

for strapless tops & dresses

the Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra by Wacoal

the reason this bra is amazing is because it really secures firmly to your rib cage, so it won’t slide down. it has three clasps in the back and offers amazing support. it’s convertible, so you can even add straps if you want to – for racerback tops, one shoulder tops, etc. you can even wear it as an everyday, regular bra, which I have many times!

for everyday

Ultimate Side Smoother Underwire T-Shirt Bra by Wacoal

since you need to make sure you have enough support for those tatas, you have to clasp on the bra nice and tight around your rib cage – which can often result in some unsightly pudge hanging over – like a muffin top on your back, not cute. this bra conceals all of that, is breathable, and I think gives great cleavage without smooshing you! I’ve been wearing this bra for years.

for working out

Underwire Sports Bra by Panache (You can also order it on Amazon in more colors, here)

hands down the best bra for working out for a big bust, ever! Panache never fails – I wore this bra training for my half marathon last year (i.e. LOTS of bouncing up and down) and it held me in tight. I can’t recommend it enough. while it’s not necessary if you’re doing a low impact workout like yoga, I still love it because I just feel so ‘protected.’

the next phase will be for nursing, so I’m sure I’ll be writing a full blog post on that!

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
