Email Archives: Back to School, It's Not Just for Kids

Fun Fact: The smell of crayons is the 18th most recognizable smell to adults.

The excitement of a new school year is more than new books and crayons. It is the promise of a new beginning. A clean slate.

As one unknown wit wrote, the first day of school is always special to me. It's the only day of the year when I'm not behind in my homework.

Back to school also means new supplies, new friends, new clothes and, for many of us, new underwear.

At Big Girls Bras, we don't think our kids should be the only ones who get to enjoy the sense of the new beginning that back to school offers. Here are our suggestions for getting you and your underwear drawer ready for fall.

A great everyday bra and one of our best sellers is the Aviana Plus Size Soft Cup Bra 2353. The full coverage soft cup is designed with an internal foam support ring in place of an underwire for extra support and comfort for the full-breasted woman. The high sides on the band control the extra tissue under the arm that is often a problem with other bras. And the floral jacquard fabric makes this bra pretty as well.

Aviana 2353 & 2457. Venus Minimizer. Freya AA4891.

If your preference is a minimizer bra for your everyday bra, the Aviana Plus Size Underwire Minimizer Bra 2457 is an excellent choice. This full-figure bra shapes and reduces bust projection by at least one inch providing a natural look and smooth fitting clothes. The cotton-lined comfort straps are specially designed to relieve pressure on your shoulders. It is one of the best-rated bras by our customers. As Bulldog wrote, "Best fitting bra and most comfortable I've ever found. Love it, love it, love it."

Another minimizer bra for your consideration is the Venus Seamless Minimizer Underwire Bra. It provides full cup coverage in a molded cup and a feminine embroidered design. This bra reduces breast projection without sacrificing style.

Freya Active Molded Raceback Sports Bra AA4891

If you need a new sports bra for fall, here's one that fits so well that many of our customers wear it as their everyday bra.

It is the Freya Active Molded Racerback Sports Bra AA4891.

This bra has the encapsulation design that provides individual support to each the breast rather than the traditional compression design of sports bras that results in the uniboob look. You'll look good and feel good in this bra.

But women do not live by bras alone and fall is an excellent time to replace panties as well.

Carnival & Vanity Fair Panties

One of our newer brands, Carnival, offers molded briefs in both high-cut bikini and boy short styles. Both styles have flat seams that make them invisible under clothes.

Vanity Fair has been a preferred brand of ladies' briefs for years. And BGB customers still love them. As one customer wrote, "These are my all time fav and will wear them forever if they keep making them." You'll likely love them as well.

With cooler days, football season and the approaching holidays, fall holds the promise of several new beginnings for each of us. Hope yours is one to remember.
