I love the Very Good Bra. Comfortable, flattering and good for the world. As each old bra wears out I replace it with one of these. PS love the indigo colour 🙂
Loving the new elastic and wider straps for 16E! I love how held in and up I feel, without the cutting in that occurred with the previous narrower strap type. Looking forward to more colours, especially Hazel with the wider strap :)
The color is a dream. The fabric is so soft. And the fit is very comfortable and very supportive. Love <3
Love this bra. The soft fabric, V and wide straps make it soooo comfortable. Best VGB yet. Thanks so much for the ongoing work you do to improve your products and make sure they provide a good, supportive fit :).
I love the V for Victory bra. The new shape fits well and I feel supported and comfortable. I bought the matching briefs as well. I was happily surprised how comfortable they are too.
I do a lot of gardening and love working around the house, and being in Qld, breathable clothing is vital. Great design, thank you.
Compared to my other vcb's this one stretches a bit more at the band so might consider going diwn a band size next time. Still v comfy though. Love the wider straps! And they've kept their shape unlike my other straps which have become pretty wrinkled (was a 38C, now a D). Would love if you could do this same style in a pale colour for under light tees!
Thanks so much! We're going to try Hazel with these new straps next year :-)
Not a good fit for an A cup.
So sorry to hear this didn't suit you. We will continue to make some bras without the V wires for the A cups.
I want to love this bra…I’ve only had it for 3 weeks and unfortunately one of the straps snapped off the other morning. I’ve only worn it a few times a week since receiving and wouldn’t think the straps would so easily break from minimal short term wear. It could possibly be an isolated incident with the stitching but it’s a huge bummer to spend the amount of money for something that I have worn very little. Other than the strap the bra is very comfortable and provides the support and separation I need without the uncomfortable underwire as to why I give 3 stars.
Hi Taylor, so sorry to hear this, we had some issues with our last production as our factory worked with our new elastic for the first time. We can replace or mend so I will email you now! thanks
I ordered the New Tencel bra and a standard Very Good bra, unfortunately, while I can tell that they are different to each other I do not know which one is which as they had absolutely no labelling on them. This is great from a waste reduction perspective but means I don't know which ones which if I want to reorder. They're very comfy, but unfortunately not good to wear outside of the house with my larger bust, I find the V protrudes through most of my shirts and makes me self conscious. I do like them, like I said they're quite comfy, just not what I was hoping for I guess. I'll keep wearing them and see if I feel better about them over time.
Hi Nique, no we don't print the model inside, but the V wire bra is the V for Victory, I'm sorry to hear thats not working so well for you. You are at our upper end in terms of sizing, we can't go any larger without spandex, so I fully understand you may get more indoor wear out of them. We keep praying for a compostable spandex replacement - one day!
Love this bra! The fit is great, the fabric is soft and supportive, and I am so impressed with the commitment to sustainability all the way down to the thread and hardware. Very easy to handwash, and it line dries quickly.
I am so glad I asked about fit. I'm in the US so buying the wrong size would have been a bummer. Stephanie was very helpful and knowledgeable.
I really like the bra, a great fit in the cup. I’m hoping it will stretch a little across my back as it’s very tight.
If we have to wear bra’s well this is the one for me. I have been looking for cotton bras for a long time, never expecting to find an organic cotton at that. What would be great is to have organic bra pads to slip into the bra. But no complaints here.
Beautiful pink, great support, and hand washes beautifully. The cup has a little less coverage than I was used to, but after a wear, I found it to be a great fit. Sizing advice from TVGB team was invaluable. I will be a repeat customer!
I LOVE my Vintage Peach Bra! The fabric is so soft, the structure is so supportive and comfortable, and the color is a dream. Forget "The Very Good Bra", these are all "The Best Bras Ever"!!
The most comfortable and best fitting bra I have ever owned!
I am a 34-36DDD or E or in AUS 12E. This bra is cut too low and my breasts end up almost falling out, especially if I need to bend over. The material and the band is great and the band. I typically have issues with bands being too big - this on wasn't. I was even able to only use the 2nd to last hook for a good fit. I will make a few adjustments to the front to make it wearable. But, if you are large chested, go for the V for Victory bra - from a quick try on - this is more suited for large breasted women.
Hi Mary, sorry to hear your issues and I have written to you privately. The sizes you quote above are very different to what you purchased? I agree the V bras are better for larger cups. Check my email for next suggestions including selling any that don't work on our Facebook Buy Swap and Sell site to find a local buyer.
I shared my bust measurements and it was agreed I should order a 10A, though I'm normally a 10B. Turns out, I needed a 12A. A little bit frustrating, but now that I have the 12A, I really appreciate how well the bra is made, and all the thinking that has gone into each element: the straps, the stitching, etc. Within ethical brands I've probably been slow to come to VGB because of the price, but I've probably spent money on bras that aren't going to be the same value for money. I'm really looking forward to life with my Very Good Bra!
I love what this company stands for and decided to take the plunge and give their bra a go. I understand the higher price tag. The bra is soft and very comfy and the size and fit pretty good, although the upper section of the cup is a little baggy on me. I’m now waiting for the peach to become available in my size!
Great fit and comfortable. A cup upper section could be a little smaller for me so that finish is smoother (material on this section is a little baggy on me).
I was nervous about the fit of these bras having a large bust and small back - it's so hard to find anything that works. But Stephanie's size recommendation was spot on!
I'm really happy with the look. It's definitely more 'natural' than the usual padding but works for most outfits if not all. So much more comfy than any bra I've worn before too! I will be back for more.
I suspect it might not last as long as some of my more robust polyester bras, but I am committed to moving away from plastic in all areas of life. I'm hoping that as more of us support great businesses like this, the economy of scale will mean prices can go down and plastic free will become the norm :)
Stephanie was so helpful online and helped me choose between a 12DD and a 12D saying that this bra with the "V" shape tends to be a bit more generous. She said I could return it if the 12D was too small. It is so soft and comfortable and really supportive and I feel like I'd love to use it as a bikini top too. I know that wouldn't be great for it but that's how much I love it. The pattern is even nicer in real life; more subtle and it looks really great. I'm going for the Liberty Pansy next. Congratulations on all your achievements with regard to aesthetics and sustainability. I wish all manufacturers would take your approach.
I normally wear a padded bra but this time was looking for organic. I found VG bra and so glad I did! At first I was worried when I didn’t see the padding but after I tried on I didn’t want to take off! So comfortable and supportive! Same with the Big Knickers. My only regret is that I didn’t buy more.. but I will! And I can’t wait to try the sleep and loungewear. Thank you The Very Good Bra!
This bra is awesome and comfy, but still feels supportive. There was a mistake with my order and the team are literally amazing went above and beyond to fix it for me. Like they state they run a little smaller so deffs size up if you want that looser fit!
Lovely fabric and print
Very flattering and comfortable
Gives a nice uplifting shape without wires🌸🦋
The Liberty bra is very pretty and very comfortable. I do find that the band is a bit too wide and it doesn't stay flat, but the slight bunching up does not effect the comfort
A beautiful feel and wonderful support. A really lovely garment that works!
I was a little wary to have made this purchase, imagining the size would be off and I’d have to return it. The wary was never needed! The size has worked out very well and I love this bra, it’s cute pattern, how well it fits, and of course I love that it’s happy for the planet.
Impressive and thoughtful product
Love these bras so much.
They tick all the boxes for me with their sustainable focus and fabric quality and ethical manufacturing.
Have three now :)
As previously reviewed, I love the V for Victory bra - this is my 5th pair! - and the Liberty Pansy is a very pretty print.
I wanted so much to like love this bra but it isn't sufficient for a large busted women. Or at least someone with a slim band and larger bust. The cup itself is well sized but when I ordered I thought that band sizing was for all bras. This is not the case. The band for the V for Victory bra is larger than the the Very Good Bra, so much so that it isn't sufficiently snug even on the last clasp. The very good bra I could close on the clasp before the last. This is quite a difference in band sizing.
I also need to adjust the straps on the bra. I keep doing so and the adjustment doesn't hold, not even for an hour or so. I realize I am a 12E AUD but I think if you are going to sell bras in this size a company should ensure that someone in that size can adjust the bra. I wasn't making large strap adjustments and the strap clip slides back. The clip does absolutely nothing.
I am again going to see what I can do to remedy the situation but I will need to take the bra apart, not what I had hoped for at all. I imagine these are great bras for women who fit them without any adjustments and I applaud the company for their efforts, but the two bras I purchased do not work even though they are my appropriate size according to the Size and Fit on the website. And, none of the issues are with the cups themselves. The cups were sufficiently sized. So, looking again for bras that fit. I will update review if I can easily make adjustments on the bras. Living in the US I don't think shipping back and forth works for sustainability.
Hi Mary, sorry to hear your issues and I have written to you privately. All factories are allowed to be + or - 1cm in the band, so there can be 2 bras which are 2cm different in the band and both meet QC, but they're quite different. Sorry that yours were. We are also moving to a new factory to improve sizing consistency, as you may be aware, Sri Lanka has had massive issues the last year and covid prior. Check my email for next suggestions including selling any that don't work on our Facebook Buy Swap and Sell site to find a local buyer.
I was finally able to buy my first Very Good Bra and chose this style because I love the sustainability and ethics behind the brand, along with the V shape. Not many wirefree bras offer that bust separation and having grown in cup size, I really wanted a 'proper' bra to feel good in. V for Victory has certainly lived up to its name - even sizing has been spot on based on your guide! I feel supported, love the fabric and feel better about my body when I'm wearing it. The only two pieces of feedback I have is the colour is definitely more apple/grass green than the lighter way it appears in the picture here, which is not a shade I like unfortunately. And the adjustable clips on the straps seem to move after I take the bra off so I need to re-adjust them for each wear. Am keen to to buy this style in Black (for a sexy date night feel) and the new Indigo shade. Thank you for such a wonderful bra!
I've been on the hunt for a bra that meets 3 basic criteria for YEARS: 1. it fits 2. it contains no synthetic material 3. it's made in the USA. I have failed repeatedly. So I discarded number 3 in order to try The Very Good Bra and I will never go back. It is the most comfortable, feel good about the planet bra I've ever worn. For reference: I'm usually a 34 E, but have been running big so I ordered a 36 E. It fits, but I believe the 34 E will be a better fit. I also wouldn't mind one additional cup size up (F?).
I am fortunate enough to have a few bras from The Very Good Bra. Just like the others, this beautiful Sage bra is absolutely perfect. The color is gorgeous. The fabric is so soft. The structure is the most supportive I've ever had, yet the bra is also extremely comfortable. Add on that these bras are fairly and ethically made with organic, sustainable and compostable materials, and I can't think of any possible improvements. Thank you for these incredible bras!
I already own some of the original very good bras, but have found the V for victory ones even more comfortable and easy to wear. I also love the colour. Thank you!
I love my bra, fits well, like the support & like the feel & that's sustainable. My second bra purchase.
The material is soft and the fit and style is very comfortable. A good bra for me is one I don't think about or notice, and that is the case with my first Very Good Bra. I was looking for a natural fabric bra with no underwires. Very hard to find. Thank you!
Because this bra is sold in cup sizes I mistakenly thought the cups would have some soft molding to give me shape. They don't, and the seams are visible under some of my work shirts. Not the right bra for workwear, for me.
Where have you been all my life !!! It’s true love my bras and pants from the very good bra. Thank you
Really happy with my new bra. The wire V at the front provides good support but is comfortable and doesn't dig in at all. It looks great too! Thanks TVGB :-)
I felt I was taking a risk purchasing TheVeryGoodBra but I am always looking to reduce my carbon and waste footprint so thought I'd give it a go. I've been wearing it for a few weeks now and am amazed at what a perfect fit it is without silly padding and push up wiring. I am 64 and it is very hard to find a bra that looks youthful yet feels good. I look forward to seeing how it composts but will take special care of it so it lasts as long as possible. Will definitely purchase more and tell my friends. Thank you.
I have been purchasing these bras since the beginning and am slowly but surely replacing all old bras with Very Good Bras. They are the most comfortably supportive bras I've ever experienced. They hold my bust in a natural shape. I use them during the day as well as overnight. Ever since having a child I no longer feel comfortable going bra-free. I've also composted at least three of them over the years. It feels great to feed my compost my bras at the end of their lives! With my last order, I purchased three replacement straps and re-strapped three Very Good Bras that were years old. The bra part typically remains in nearly perfect shape while the straps give out with time. It was a simple fix and now it's like I have three new bras!
For me this bra did not fit very close to the sizing chart and sizes I was recommended. I did however have the black bra (in the same size) and it fit.
Hi Elizabeth, I'm sorry your bra didn't fit. We are happy to take returns, or you can try and sell on our Facebook Buy Swap and Sell group if the bra is worn?
I love the The Very Good Bra so much, that I brought three different ones! I made sure I purchased the correct bra for me using the Size and Fit configurations, so that I did not get a bra that did not fit me correctly. The material is comfy and feels lovely. All my old bras, the straps always fell off my shoulders, but with The Very Good Bra, it certainly did not, so I am very happy! It also washes well. Love them! Well done!
Love these bras - this is my 4th! So comfortable to wear, and the E cup houses my FF boobs perfectly. Never going back to underwires :)
I was very exciting about what this bra would be like! The shape that it gives is amazing and it is very comfortable. I wear a 30E and so finding a good bra, let alone one with a great environmental record is not always simple! The band under the cups sometimes isn't flush against the skin for the whole day, but that would be the only minor gripe as I don't even feel it move, nor is it less comfortable. I will definitely be getting this bra again.
Best bra I have EVER owned. I have 4 now. Really good fit. I love it!
Loved it so much I’ve ordered another one. Beautiful colour, super comfortable and fully compostable at end of life. What more could I ask for?
I absolutely love the Very Good Bra products. I love to wear them and I love to support Stephanie's efforts. The tencel black and vintage peach bras come in one size smaller and it looks like at least the black ones are being phased out, so I decided to try exactly one size larger in the V for Victory style and it's just too big. I'll donate them to good homes and hope that at least one style with my size remains available. The bras are beautiful and I'd highly recommend them to anyone larger than me. In the meantime, I'm sticking up on small sizes so I can wear these and tell people about them for years to come as all of mine are going strong after extensive use. Thanks so much, Stephanie!
Thanks for this Ann, Black and Peach will always be continued in the old style. They are our best-sellers although customers since have loved the newer V bras. We are working on a new style and sizing down to AA for hopefully later this year. Thanks for your feedback
I LOVE my Very Good bras!! By far the best bras I have ever had. These are a must-have!! Perfect fit and support, so comfortable and healthy, and absolutely ethical in every way! I love everything about them!
