We're talking a lot about comfort this month. Our bra of the month, Sugar Candy, is soft and seamless and totally comfortable. Perfect for kicking back at a summer concert or barbecue.
We talked a lot about our awesome bra tanks that let you wear just the tank, no matter the size of your bust. We can't say it enough: the tank IS the bra, even if you're a J cup.

Everyone complains to us about back fat. All of our customers, even one of our employees with a 28 band size.
