Review: Adore Me #bustygirlproblems



I've hesitated to write this post, because, well, writing about my underwear might be a little TMI on a blog read by many of my friends and family (including my brother and ex-coworkers).  Although I've done it before (complete with photos).

I just couldn't keep this to myself.  Being on the busty side of things, yet otherwise small-ish, I've had a horrible time finding bras that fit.  I don't even bother shopping at the usual stores here, since they don't actually have my size.  Or if they do (like VS) they cost an arm and a leg.  So I took a risk and ordered one online a couple of years ago.  It fit perfectly!  But I haven't been able to find anything else comparable in price without paying a LOT extra for duty and shipping (comes with being Canadian).

Then I found Adore Me.  Hello, pretty bras? That actually fit? And don't look like the horrible white boxed bra that my mom bought me when I first started needing one?  That one was probably bullet-proof.

I have now ordered three from Adore Me, and I have to say, they have earned a loyal customer.  For the price and quality and colours!  I'm probably now a little bit addicted.   I loved the first one, from the second I opened the box.  And instantly felt grown up for wearing an actual "set" for the first time ever.  The second one I ordered didn't thrill me at first, but I think it was because I just wasn't used to the style.  I've since adjusted to it, although I still may move the straps in a bit.  I can't wait for number three to arrive!

  1. Hmmm, I might just have to check this store out, as I have the same problem as you - skinny yet busty girl. (That's supposed to be good, right, so why don't the stores make stuff for us?) My problem right now, however, is nursing bras... My girls have all been long-term nursers so it's hard to find nice bras that still work for nursing. So unfortunately most of the bras I like are relegated to the back of the drawer to dream about the day that I'm not nursing a baby... :)

    1. Yeah, I don't think Adore Me has nursing bras. Well-fitting ones are definitely hard to find, never mind pretty ones! Good luck!

  2. Same problem here. No La Senza fire sales for me either. I swear by Dawn's Bratique. You head to a fitting room, tell the clerk what you're looking for, and she brings it to you. So much more helpful than wandering the racks looking for rare sizes.

    1. I've been meaning to go to Dawn's one day. I did a similar fitting-type thing in VS, but they basically told me my size was the biggest cup they had with a 32 band, when I obviously needed one or two cup sizes bigger. It was quite nice not having to comb the racks!
