Choosing a Sports Bra and Why They’re Essential


Since losing over 2 stone last year, it seems like I wear sports bras almost as much as ‘regular’ bras. Exercise was definitely the ‘secret’ behind my weight loss (not really anything ground-breaking, I know!), but with working out 3-4 times per week, you come to truly appreciate how essential a decent sports bra is.

It might still be too cold to be thinking about florals and bra straps on show, but the world of lingerie waits for no one; my 300 denier tights are still going strong, but Spring/Summer collections are just around the corner. Who cares about Christmas, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Pour Moi Promise Non Padded: Bra Review

I’ve been of the opinion, until now, that Pour Moi were the best thing since sliced bread, and without doubt my favourite inexpensive full cup lingerie brand. I wouldn’t say that this isn’t completely the case, but my love has been dinted by the Promise – it simply didn’t, ahem, live up to the ‘promise’ of other Pour Moi bras I’ve tried.

Lepel Iris Full Cup: Bra Review

It’s not very often that you see Lepel bra reviews. In fact, I don’t think there’s ever been one on Invest In Your Chest before and a quick Google search will reveal just how under-represented they are as a brand within the lingerie blogging world. So why not more Lepel coverage? Well, for me they’re a brand which don’t often put themselves out there. They don’t really shout about themselves too loudly and their designs often have a very safe look to them.

Pour Moi Amour Long Line Strapless: Bra Review

Pour Moi Amour Longline bra full

It’s not that often that I find a bra in my size that I find really sexy. I’m not actually that huge a fan of overly sexy lingerie and will rarely go out of my way to buy any, let alone wear any. I’m much more of a cute, pretty, glamorous, fun lingerie kind of girl (and not all at the same time). For this reason it’s pretty unusual for me to pick something up that’s both bright red and lacy, but when I saw Pour Moi’s Amour Longline in my local independent lingerie boutique, I couldn’t resist.

Boux Avenue Alarna: Bra Review


Boux Avenue and I have never really got along. It’s true, I’ve written previously about their questionable in-store fitting service and previous reviews have had low scores. In fact, whilst I’ve made a few recommendations to friends about trying their bras for size, I’ve near enough avoided entering a Boux Avenue store since my last blog post in 2012. It wasn’t until a recent trip to Bristol when I spotted a super-cute fluoro orange bikini caught my eye the week before my holiday that I popped in.

Pour Moi Geometric Bra in Spearmint: Bra Review

Pour Moi Spearmint Geometric

I have recently gotten really tired of ALL my bras, so have been on a huge spending spree to give my lingerie drawer a bit of a refresh. Living in Bournemouth, there’s not much choice when it comes to bras in my size, and even less of a choice of reputable fitting outlets.
