I hate wearing bras. I don’t think I’m alone in this department, right ladies? I mean sure, it’s fun to wear the cute or sexy lingerie when you’re feeling sassy. But for everyday purposes when you’re dealing with hectic schedules of work, or running errands, or chasing after the kids, the last thing you want to think about is how your bra is riding up in places, or poking you with the underwire, or the straps are too tight or too loose.
Well look no further, because I think I may have the solution to your undergarment woes in a little product called the Coobie Bra. Not only does this bra have a cute name, but also it is quite possibly the most comfortable bra I’ve ever worn in my entire life! This “one size fits all” bra is available in a number of styles and colors, you can wear these bras through any activity, from morning to night (and even sleep in them).
I got to test the Coobie Scoopneck Bra in Mocha Brown ($18), as well as the Coobie Bandeau in Black – and I love them both. In fact, I’m already planning on buying more styles and colors. Seamless with removal padding and no underwire, or hooks, these bras are all one size fits all and by how flexible and stretchy they are I can totally believe they fit any size from an 32A to a 36D (And they do offer a couple of their styles in full sizes from 38A to 42D-DD.)
I’m a 34B and was thrilled with the fit and comfort level of these bras. (Agreed, these aren’t the type of bras that beg to removed the second you walk in the door of your home ~ Tyna) Of course, while fit and comfort are important, ladies with a fuller figure may prefer a bit more support then what the Coobie offers. (Also true, my more endowed sister and I purchased Coobies together and I ended up getting hers as well. Score! ~ Tyna).
The Scoop neck’s design is reminiscent of a sports bra but is way more comfortable and cuter. It hugs my body in the right places, moves with me, offers great support and literally feels like I’m not wearing a bra! Even after wearing it all day I find myself wearing it just to lounge around the house.
If you’re looking for a little support when going strapless, then definitely try the Coobie Strapless Bandeau ($18). I’ve tried other bandeau style bras before and was always doing that obnoxious hiking-up-the-bra maneuver, but not so with the Coobie. The stretchy material and padding offered great support and stayed in place.
But don’t keep that Coobie hidden away. Worn with a low-cut blouse or V-neck top, the Coobie adds a fun touch of color. Need a comfy yoga top? The Scoop neck would be perfect for low impact fitness needs.
The only thing I was not a big fan of was the amount of padding. It’s about an eighth of an inch thick and while it does help offer significant support, it may feel a bit much for some. Without the pads though it felt a little too thin for my taste and could pose some problems on colder days, if you know what I mean.
That’s said the pros of this bra totally make it worth wearing and it’s still safe to say that The Coobie is my new favorite everyday bra and anyone looking to rid their lives of uncomfortable bras forever should definitely give these a try!
• Affordable! Bras range from $18-$22 each.
• So comfortable you can wear it literally ALL the time.
• The padding may not be for everyone (but can be easily removed).
• It’s one size may fit all, but because it lacks support, Coobie works best for those with A and B cups
Readers – have you worn a Coobie? Do you agree they’re the most comfortable bra on the planet?[ratings]
