Win our brand new ‘light as air’ bra

BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 29 JUN 2011 10:53 COMPETITIONSCOMMENTS

Light as air bra

Finally the ‘weight’ is over, we’ve launched our lightest ever t-shirt bra weighing just 48g. And even better, we’ve got 5 to give away!

When finding a perfect fitting bra a woman should be able to forget she’s wearing it which is exactly what you’ll do when wearing our ‘light as air’ bra. Our research showed that lots of traditional t-shirt bras were quite heavy due to their dense foam structure, required to give an invisible fit.

Over 90% of women in trials agreed the new ‘light as air’ bra felt like a second skin. It has no bulk, and moulds to the body, feeling noticeably lighter than  other bras.

It’s a weight off your shoulders – literally- and we’re confident that once you try this bra, you’ll never wear another t-shirt bra again – it really is that comfy.

Buy ‘light as air’ bra (UK)

Buy ‘light as air’ bra (Ireland)

How they measure up:

  • Light as air t-shirt bra – 48g
  • Regular t-shirt bra – 58g
  • Push up bra – 92g
  • Gel push up bra – 235g

For a chance to win…

The competition is now closed. Readers told us in a comment at the bottom of this post how they lighten up? 5 winners were selected at random to win a bra and we had great fun reading all your entries.

The winners are: Alison Church, Kerri Simpson, Claire Jones, Jackie Ponting and Laura Moran.

    I find simply going outside and getting some air helps me to lighten up. I particularly enjoy Summer evenings when after a busy, stressful day and after the rest of the household is in bed I venture out into the garden, sit on my wooden reclining chair with a chilled glass of wine ( or a cup of tea), close my eyes and relax. It is so peaceful and still with just the occasional sound of birdsong. I sometimes stay out until it is dark but as long as it is warm enough it beats being indoors!
