Finding a bra is never easy, especially if you’re looking for one that’s not only comfortable, but cute and affordable. That’s why when you come across one that’s been proven a winner, it’s definitely worth a closer look.
One top-rated Nordstrom pick is the Feathers Underwire Contour Bra by Natori. The fan-favourite has earned more than 3,300 customer reviews. While it typically retails for $68, it's currently on sale for $45 as part of Nordstrom's long-awaited Anniversary Sale.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially opens to the public on July 28 at 3 a.m. EST/12 a.m. PST and runs until Aug. 8; however, if you're a Nordstrom cardmember, it's your lucky day, as you can already access the sale. As of July 16, cardmembers as well as three Nordy Club membership levels can shop the exclusive Nordstrom sale: Icons, Ambassadors and Influencers. If you're not a Nordy Club member, you can add your favourite items to your wish list in the meantime.
On the hunt for the perfect bra? Here's why this Nordstrom find is so popular — and one that's expected to sell out quickly!
SHOP IT: Nordstrom, $45 (originally $68)
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.
'Perfect fit' for uneven breast sizes
"My left breast is larger than the right one. One is a 32D and the other one a 32 C+ probably. Standard bras give me uneven coverage where one side will fit perfectly but the other one will have a gap. This bra solves my problem. It runs a little small, but the soft cups and laces do not crush my other side. It is a perfect fit and it is very comfortable."
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.
