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!
