Playtex Bra Giveaway!

August 25 2011 | CeCe Olisa

I love my boobs!

For me one of the advantages of being a Plus Size Princess are “the twins”. Because I love them so so much, I’m very picky about the bras I wear. I have my go-to brands/styles and I stick with them. So when All You Magazine & Playtex offered to send me some of their 18-hour bras to test out, I was prepared to wear them once and then shove them in the back of my closet.

Surprisingly, I haven’t done that!

While I prefer a more sexy demi-cup bra most of the time, these Playtex bras have made their way into my weekly gym routine. The support they give without under-wire makes them perfect for my workouts! I think we’ve all done the bra + sports bra combination at the gym, and its annoying (not to mention it creates more laundry).

Not only did the Playtex bras provide ample support for my DDD’s, they have “moisture management cups” which helps with *ahem* Boob Sweat.

I’ve worn my Playtex bra to the gym on Saturday morning and then to run errands all day and the 18 hour promise is legit. I was completely comfortable, never adjusted the straps once all while feeling completely supported. It gives a nice silhouette under a t-shirt/tank top too.

To top it all off, Playtex has given me 15 bras to giveaway! Sizes vary per style but are approximately 36B to 46DDD

There are two ways to win:

1.) Leave a comment on this post

2.) Tweet the following phrase “Got Boobs? @thebiggirlblog is giving away 15 Playtex bras (36B to 46DDD)! Follow her & RT to enter! #plussize #fashion”

Good Luck!

    I am so glad you put this post. It is so hard finding pretty bras that are comfortable when you have big boobs. Playtex just might be my new go to for my bras!!

    Thanks

    Unfortunately I’m not very blessed in the twins department. I’m on the small side of plus size but my twins don’t look very big even though they are 38 C ugh!!

    I still haven’t found a bra supportive enough to wear without a 2nd layer of sports bra when I work out. Would be very curious to try the Playtex bra.

    It is so hard for me to find good bras locally and I am not sure if I would feel much better about ordering them off the internet, but I think I will give Playtex a try.

    I need new bras in the worst way. DDD is NOT an easy size to shop for and the ones i have now are clearly too small ( I think i am going through second puberty ) and give me a bad case of 4 boob syndrome. Which is making me hunch over. Which is not pretty. DDD is also NOT a cheap size to shop for and funds are TIGHT!!

    I love my bazooms, too. I can never find a bra that fits and have resorted to the stretchy tube things. Would be SO nice to have a real bra!

    Could imagine how happy women all over the world would be if some smart bra designer designed “made to fit” cotoure bras?

    Seriously, no more wrong size. No more adjusting. It would be fitted for YOU and only you. That would be bliss. I would be pay a little more for that kind of perfect fit.

    Looks like a nice comfortable bra…I am SO hard to fit, so many new bras are so padded at the top of the cup that I have nothing left to put in them! Then it just looks weird. Thanks for doing a giveaway!

    I am in need of some new bras – glad to hear your positive review of Playtex. I’ve been reluctant to go bra shopping b/c they are always so expensive; I’m guessing that Playtex might be a little more reasonably priced than some dept or specialty store brands. I’ll definitely check them out!

    Since I was 10 years old I have had to wear a bra and I have had every type of bra in the book. But for a bra to help prevent boobie sweat, I’m all for it and maybe I won’t have to keep worrying about my boobs being uncomfortable anymore!

    I don’t have twitter, but I want a bra! I’ve always seen the comercials but never tried the 18hr bras before. They look like a winner to me!

    I haven’t tried playtex bras before so I’m a little skeptical, but you can’t beat a free bra if you’re gonna try it for the first time! I hope they are good for workouts because I’ve just started actively trying to lose some college pounds!

    I have large breasts and it’s so hard to find
    an affordable bra that will give me the support I desperately need!
    I think the Playtex 18 hour would be a blessing!

    I haven’t tried the playtex bra, but i have some good things about it from a girlfriend of mine and i heard it offers great support. I just recently tried the genie bra which is a popular as seen on tv bra that offers pretty good support and can be worn as a top or sports bra too.

    Hello, I do need a good bra, but this one is not what I would call pretty. I like lacy bras and bras with skinnier straps but that still give good support. Does anybody else have any suggestions for pretty bras that are at least a 38D?
