Let’s talk about bra shopping. There it is. The collective groan from the audience. Let’s face it, whether you’re a stunt double for Twiggy or a dead ringer for Dolly, finding a bra that works can be a challenge.
I’ve been wearing the same bra for two years. Okay, not THE same bra, but the same make and model. I love it, but it does have a nasty habit of releasing its underwire at a spot somewhere around the dead centre of my heart and giving me a wake-up stab. Ouch. I hate poke through.
WonderBra to the rescue! This age-old bra brand has introduced a line called No Poke. How clever. No Poke Wires are spring tipped and wrapped in four layers of fabric. No Poke Side Stays are made of ultra flexible whalebone and also wrapped in fabric.
I’ve been wearing the #7483 (pictured here, and sure, that’s me in the photo, maybe) for a month and it’s a thing of beauty. I’ve released the fear of being stabbed in the heart and this bra give me fantastic uplift and support.
The WonderBra No Poke bras start at size B34 and range up to DD42. There’s even a plus size style. They can be found at Sears, The Bay and specialty bra stores. Starting at $38.
