The other bra was out of stock in my size so I bought the V for Victory bra. It’s so comfortable and I wear it all the time! I have been wearing natural fibre bras for a while, but its nice to get one that fits well and is also supportive for a mid size bust. And the Sage Green is so beautiful (I bought other colours but this is my favourite!)
I really love this bra! It fits so comfortably and gives enough support for my large bosom.
I got both this sage cotton bra and the black tencel bra, and I will say that I much prefer the cotton material as it gives more structure/support to my breasts than the tencel material does.
Can I just say that these bras are sooo good on really hot days. They absorb sweat so no more chafing or rubbing. The skin under breasts is in much better condition than previous summers. Who knew that being green could be comfy too?
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 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 :)
Great cut, super comfy, very happy with my purchase!
Lovely fabric and style. Comfortable too! Got my size right this time so a perfect fit! Carefully reading the size guide is definitely helpful.
I’ve previously reviewed big knickers in hazel or poppy so sage is no different except to say that it is a lovely colour. Like the others, they are very comfy fitting and extremely well made knickers.
Stephanie, I really appreciate that you’ve added an extra cm or two and would celebrate if you could do an Extra Big Knickers version with another 3cms. Let’s see what your other customers think?
Beautifully soft and comfortable. Love them, love the colour. Altogether perfect.
The big knickers fit well at the beginning of the day, but by lunch time I’m strutting a different walk hoping they will stay up.
Lovely material though.
Very happy with my purchase … I’m sure I will be buying again. Big shout out for being as ‘green’ as possible. This buying experience has taught me to be super careful with buying clothing plus how I dispose of it eventually. Super super comfort … I will be spreading the word! Cheers Everyone!
These are super comfortable soft lightweight gorgeous knickers.
I love the fit of these high-leg briefs. I get full coverage and they are very comfortable. I can't wait to order more!
