If you are like most women, you have spent way too much money on bras that you hope will be comfortable and give you good support. Personally I hate bra shopping. One bra brand will fit okay around my body but not in the cup or visa-verse. No two brands are sized alike, and when you finally find a good fitting bra you buy several of them, no matter what price they are because you fear the next time you need a new bra this style will be discontinued. I have a large chest cavity but not large breasts so I wear a 40B. Finding a bra big enough around that doesn't cut me in half, yet has a small B cup is next to impossible. And I don't know why the bra manufacturers do it but a B cup on a 40B is much bigger than a B cup on a 34B, so I still end up with too much room in my cups.
My most recent bra shopping experience was no different. When I ask the clerk if they had a 40B in the pretty bras she looks at me like I am some kind of weirdo. She repeats my question like I must have messed up the numbers some how, "You want a '40' 'B'?? Have you measured yourself to be sure that is the size you wear?" Insulted I walk away and begin trying on every bra I can find in that size until I find one that fits, then I buy every color in that style. My most recent purchased bra cost me over $40.00 each.
Then recently I received a sample bra from Total Stockroom, a distributor of the Coobie One-Size-Fits-Most Bras. They wanted me to carry their bras in my store. Because I only carry baby, maternity, and nursing products I did not feel this was something that I would be interested in stocking, but would certainly check it out for my personal use. I looked at this tiny little black bra in total disbelief that this was going to fit anyone but a 32A. "One-Size-Fits-Most...yea I bet!" I said to myself. Since I was just getting into the shower I thought, "Ok, I will squeeze this little thing on right after my shower and then send them a polite email to say their advertisement of one-size-fits-most was misleading.
After my shower I gave this little bra a stretch and was impressed with its stretch-ability. The company guarantees a perfect fit for anyone size 32A to 36D and says that varying other sizes will find a good fit too. I am a 40B so I had my doubts. I slid it on over my head (its a seamless, hookless bra that fits on much like a sports bra) and to my amazement it fit! I took the pads out through the tiny slits on the sides of the cup. I was very impressed how it instantly felt comfortable. The entire bra is stretchy, similar to a sports bra but without the flattening effect that sports bras have. It also has some rouching in the front which looks pretty but its real function is to prevent uni-boob...we all know what that is. The best part of this bra...when I turned sideways to look at the back I noticed a Wonderful feature...this bra did not create any 'back-roll!' All women know what 'back-roll' is. Even skinny little things can have a little back-roll with some bras.
I looked again at the materials that Total Stockroom sent me and discovered that the retail price of this bra was only $18.00-20.00, less than half what I paid for a bra that still had too much room in the cups and I was relieved to take off at the end of the day. I saw that they also carried a lacy version of this scoopneck bra, one that could be worn with low cut tops like a camisole with the lace showing, without all the bulk of also wearing a camisole.
I then decided to give this bra the full-day wear test and make my decision about the bra that evening...see if I was READY to get this thing off at the end of the day like all other bras I have ever worn. To my delight, there were several times during that day that I forgot I was even wearing a bra! Yes, it was that comfortable!
By four days later I was totally in Love with the Coobie Bra! I was still wearing it all day and only taking it off when I went to bed. By this point I wanted one in every color and style and I was telling my friends, other moms, our Mommies group, customers, anyone who would listen, that this was the worlds greatest bra! Even though I would never have thought of carrying products in my store that are not baby, maternity or nursing related, I decided to make a exception to my rule because this bra. I placed a wholesale order and even gave a Free Coobie to one of our BloggerMommies facebook fans when we reached 200 fans. She loved hers so much she has since purchased 3 more from us. She also posted her own personal review of the Coobie Bra on her own blog...check it out at General Hysteria A Life of Managed Chaos.
I gave one to Katy, one of our BloggerMommies, and she Loved it so much that she came back and purchased at least one more in each style. Here is what Katy had to say about the Coobie Bra:
What a wonderful bra! The first thing I thought when I first saw this bra was look at all the pretty colors! black, white, nude, yellow, brilliant blue, purple and a fushia pink! The bra comes with an extra pair of free clear straps and is super light and soft. There are three styles. The first is the scoopneck and looks almost like a normal sports bra with a little detailing on the front that makes it a bit more sexy. The second is a scoopneck with lace, its a little more fancy with lace along the top that would make it great for lower cut shirts to create a layered look. The third one is a strapless made for those sexy lil tops. All Coobies come with removable pads that are easy to insert and remove through a little hole along the outer edge of the cup. The Coobie is a one size fits most bra so it will go from a small A to a D making shopping so much easier. Just find the color you want and your done! The first thing I thought when I got it home was that it was going to push me flat and me being a very petite “A” I need all the help I can get. I was pleased when I put it on it didn't push me flat and was very cute an super comfy. Its so hard to find an “adult” looking bra in my size. I always end up with some brightly colored, polka dotted or flowered bra that is so uncomfortable and looks more suitable for a 6th grader . The straps are super easy to unhook and hook with two loops in the front and two in the back. I found that I could wear the bra with any shirt just by crossing or uncrossing the straps. Since I brought my first Coobie home I have also invested in the strapless too. I was so amazed that it stayed in place, most strapless are so full of padding that they fall around your waist with the wrong move. The Coobie bras are a great investment of at price ranging from $16.00 to $22.00* no matter what size you are. (*prices vary depending on where you purchase)
Word spreads fast in a small town so once they arrived in my store they started flying off the shelf. I had to place a reorder within the first week. Women of all ages were loving the comfort of the Coobie. Pregnant moms were buying them so they could wear one bra throughout pregnancy that would accommodate their fluctuating breast sizes without the need for several different bras, and breastfeeding moms were wearing them as sleep bras. That is when I decided that women everywhere deserved to know about the Coobie Bra. I contacted Adam, our rep at Total Stockroom and asked him if he would be willing to give away say 6 Coobie Bra's to our readers in exchange for us posting a review of the Coobie Bra. Adam quickly accepted our offer. So here it is Ladies, your chance to Win your very own Coobie Bra!
