Evelyn & Bobbie: A Women-Owned Business That Just Gets It

There’s nothing I love more than wearing pieces that not only feel good but come from a brand that does good. Evelyn & Bobbie is just that. They reached out a few months ago to see if we would be interested in trying out a few of their bras and underwear and I couldn’t say yes fast enough.

Their founder, Bree McKeen, created Evelyn & Bobbie because she was “tired of being weighed down by discomfort, and wasn’t willing to sacrifice [her] silhouette.” As a 34DDD curvy woman she just got it…all the pain and discomfort that comes with an everyday bra. So, she sought to create a solution (like a total girlboss) through patented technology, her love for data, and listening to the feedback of real women. Now she wears that solution she created every day.

When I first checked out their site, one of the first things I saw was this statement, “No more underwire. No more itchy tags and seams. Just seamless, beautiful, comfortable products that you can feel good about.” Okay…sold. Their bras come in a wide range of shades and sizes (cup size C-K and band size 29-50) and they are supposed to mold to your body with each wear (they feel snug at first). Being a 34DDD myself and constantly looking for the perfect bra, I was super excited and after months of wearing 3 different bras from Evelyn & Bobbie, I can say I have been more than impressed. 

3 Comfortable Bras For Bigger Busts, A Try-On

On days when I don’t want or need to wear the big ole’ underwire-bra-torture-device, I grab one of my stretchy bras. You know what I’m talking about. Those bras with no padding, or you took the padding out because it fell out in the wash and you can’t figure out how to put it back in? The “bra” you probably shouldn’t leave the house in but your shirt is loose enough that mayyyybe it’s okay????

That’s my best way to explain why these bras have been such a lifesaver. They’re comfy enough that I’m constantly throwing them on each morning but they also actually hold everything up like an underwire bra does. Let’s get into it…

1. The Basic Essential: The Beyond Bra

The Beyond Bra is closest to your regular bra with back clasps and adjustable straps. I love how low the back is on this one (it makes it super versatile to go with any of my tops). It’s paired with their High-Waisted Retro Bikinis which have been super comfy. I prefer high-rise and high-cut underwear, and these are exactly what I typically reach for. The material of their pieces are soft, smooth and so lightweight it feels like you’re almost wearing nothing.

See how low that back is!! Bra clasps always ride up high on my back, but this scoop shape keeps it low and in place. I’m wearing the color ‘Willow’ in this set and it’s so stunning. A beautiful neutral.


2. The Most Comfortable: The Bobbie Scoop

This is the bra I’ve been reaching for the most. It’s the perfect replacement for my softer no-padding bras (that shouldn’t be worn out of the house, haha). It has a smooth back which I love (no outline under tighter tops!) and is overall just the most comfortable since you don’t have to deal with clasps. It’s paired with their High-Waisted Thong, which fits the same as the previous pair.

Although I typically wear nude, this colorway, Moonstone Lace, is soft enough of a shade that blends in and is just so stunning.


3. The Prettiest: The Evelyn Bra

The scalloped edges on this bra are so special. Not only do they look pretty, but they prevent any harsh edges from cutting into your chest. It had a little more lift to it than the other bras, which is crazy because it has no underwire in it. The fabric really smooths out my back and sides feeling invisible for all-day wear. Have to give it up to these Longline Girlshorts as well. Meant to be worn as underwear, they have been perfect under my dresses and skirts without having to wear spandex or shorts on top.

The color of this set, Salt, is pretty much my perfect match when it comes to blending in with my skin. At a quick glance, it really looks like I’m wearing nothing…which is why I put it at the end. Ha!
