Reviewed: Mimi Holliday Comfort Bra Style

I’m no stranger to Mimi Holliday, though I’ve never owned one of their comfort bra styles before. A bra literally named ‘comfortable’- it was too tempting to not give it a whirl. I chose this one because I loved the lace and the vintage bridal feel of it. I bought the full set, waspie included, and am smitten. The bra is very comfortable- enough to to be labeled a comfort bra. I often forget I’m wearing it when I go out in it, but not always in a good way.

Featuring one vertical semi-seam going up half the cup, this bra has almost no support or shaping, so be warned of that. I wear it only under loose clothing and on days where I know I won’t need the girls to be uplifted and supported. The classic ‘arm bra’ (you know the one- going down the stairs, just coming out of the shower- arm slung under boobs, supporting them while you find a real bra) is more supportive than the Mimi comfort bra, so keep that in mind before you buy it. If you’re looking for something that won’t be doing a lot of heavy-duty lifting, and want a barely-there feel, this is the bra for you.

The band is snug, and definitely the firmest among my Mimi Holliday bras. Like other Mimis, it has only one hook (choked sob) and four columns, which almost redeems the fact that it’s a very thin band.

Shaping is natural- so natural that it doesn’t really look like you’re wearing a bra at all. It’s slightly uplifted but besides that, nothing. It feels like there isn’t anything between you and your shirt, which some of you may like, and others may not.

The stretch lace makes this bra a great fit and very forgiving of asymmetry. The lace stretches enough to incorporate my bigger days as well as my smaller ones, which is why it’s one of my favorite bras.

“Here, use the picture to cover your butt!”

I really like this bra. It’s one of my favorites, and every time I wear a loose-fitting shirt, I go for this one. Bear in mind that my chest is smaller than a lot of other people, and can go braless if should choose to. I don’t mind the lack of support and shape, and enjoy the barely-there feeling the comfort bra has.

As to whether or not I will be buying more remains to be seen, as I can’t imagine filling my bra wardrobe with this one. It’s just not practical enough for my lifestyle, so I think I’ll opt more for Mimi’s padded or shoulder bra styles.

Until next time,

P.S. ย Here’s an outtake from the shoot- nothing to do with lingerie, but I think it’s a great shot ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I WAS JUST THINKING OF GETTING THIS BRA. I must ask (if you don’t mind), what size did you get? I’m trying to decide if I could pull off a 30D (it’s extremely discounted…).

  2. No problem, I keep forgetting to include that- this is a 28F, and it’s definitely TTS. I’m not sure the 30D would work, unless 30Ds in other styles work on you.The lace s definitely forgiving, but make sure they have a good return policy in case it doesn’t. I’d say the size is comparable to your Fortnight or Cleo size. Hope that helps ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. I think I might try it just for science. I have a 28F Arielle comfort bra that’s 1 cup size too big. But it’s from 2012, and as of 2013 they changed their sizing so that their bras fit 1 cup size larger. If they implemented the change properly, theoretically a 28DD (or 30D) should fit like one of their old 28Es (or 30DDs). I… I think I need to know, haha (at least it will make a good post if the science succeeds or fails!)
