Unfortunately, the bra didn't live up to the hype. Extremely uncomfortable straps, scratchy and dug into my skin within minutes of trying the bra on. Otherwise the fabric felt ok, but I couldn't wear the bra, so decided to return it. On the other hand, the undies are fab and definitely keeping them.
Hi Vivienne, as per our emails, I'm sorry the elastic didn't work for you. There is only one 100% compostable elastic in the world and this is it. Synthetic elastics are much more luxurious and soft but sadly all destined for landfill. We are working with a new style of elastic from the same manufacturer next year which is softer, and wider for larger sizes.
The V for Victory bra's so comfortable to wear. It's the first bra I look for.
I love my new V for victory Bra - as a 16DD it is hard to find non wired bra's that are comfortable and supportive but this bra ticks those boxes plus the environmental consciousness box - what's not to love! These are going to be my go to bra's from now on!!
My v Bra is very comfortable and I love knowing it’s chemical feee and fair trade thanks
I’d love to give this 5 stars as it is a great idea, lovely soft material and nice style. Unfortunately, the straps are too thin and elastic over the shoulders. This makes it uncomfortable for me (E cup) - they dig in. Wider straps, non-elastic over the shoulder is standard in most bras, so I wasn’t expecting this problem.
Hi Debbie, sorry to hear you're disappointed with the straps. Unfortunately, our maker doesn't make this elastic any wider than 13mm so that's what we have to work with. We are however trialling one of their different elastics in a wider width for our next colours. It only comes in 20mm but it feels super soft in wearing so far, and doesn't look overly wide.
