The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (shop here in Canada, shop here in U.S.) is one of the biggest shopping events of the summer. The department store's annual shopping event is perfectly timed for anyone looking to outfit their family for the back to school season or get a head start on building a fall wardrobe.
No matter your shopping needs, one of the best items to shop during the Anniversary Sale is for everyday essentials, like bras. Through frequent washing and wearing, our bras can lose shape overtime, which is why replacing your bras at least every 12 months is essential to maintaining the perfect fit.
One top-rated pick from the Nordstrom sale is the Feathers Underwire Contour Bra by Natori (shop here in Canada, here in the U.S.). The fan-favourite has earned more than 3,300 customer reviews. While it typically retails for $68 USD/$92 CAD, it's currently on sale for $45 USD/$61 CAD— but not for long.
Nordstrom's highly popular sale is ending Aug. 8, making now the perfect time to upgrade your bra game while you can.
This signature T-shirt bra adds a little romance to your everyday with delicate feathered lace and a plunging silhouette, and comes in five wearable shades that are ideal for everyday.
It features contoured plunge cups with a molded mesh outer cover that provides a flattering and lifting effect, while elastic-edged, stretch-lace wings hug your body securely without ever digging in.
Why shoppers love it
Available in sizes 30A to 38DD, this underwire bra has received the stamp of approval from thousands of happy reviewers, and 76 per cent of its reviews were 5-star ratings. It’s suitable for women of all shapes and sizes, and has especially won over women who are fuller-chested.
'This is my new favourite!'
"I am a full 36DDD and usually have issues with bra that are not full coverage,” wrote one reviewer. “This is my new favourite! Fits beautifully in the front, lays flat, straps stay put, and band fits snugly in the best way.”
'34DDD and holds everything in'
“Love this bra so much, I've worn it for about 4 years now and don't see myself ever wearing another brand or style,” added another. “Wears well, comfortable and durable. 34DDD and holds everything in without discomfort or ill fit.”
Adjustable straps allow for a customized fit, and as an added bonus for larger sizes, the strap width increases to provide extra support without sacrificing comfort.
Some reviewers have noted that sizing for this bra does run a little small, so if you’re between sizes you’re better off going with the larger option for extra comfort.
'Best bra in the world'
"This is hands down, the best bra in the world. I'm not kidding," a Nordstrom shopper said. "The fit is superb. It is plunging, so it goes with low necklines. It's smooth, so is a great t-shirt bra. I have four colours with the matching briefs, and my husband is obsessed. I plan on getting more and wearing this bra for the rest of my life. Get it!"
Even with the positive reviews, there were some shoppers who have said their breast shape didn't quite work with this bra.
"I wanted to love this, tried on several sizes (with the sales rep checking size/fit too) and this just didn't work with my breasts (32B, tear drop shape, athletic build)," a shopper explained. "The lace cut into my chest and gave a weird shape. The bra seemed well made and was comfortable, but just didn't fit me right in the cups."
Others complained that the lace detail wasn't ideal for their wardrobe, and could be seen under certain tops.
"This is a very pretty bra, but the lace trimming around the cups gives a silhouette that is not completely smooth under a thin top," another said. "Therefore, I returned it."
The final verdict
With thousands of satisfied shoppers, it seems like a pretty safe bet as an option for those looking for a new bra. While it is traditionally pricey many reviewers have admitted that they had gotten years of use of of this particular style. If you're looking to stock up on new bras, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect time to shop and save on this top-rated pick — however, make sure you read the reviews to determine if the fit will be right for your body.
