I have just bought some of these for less than I’d buy a single bra for usually. Does anyone have any experience with them?

I intended to go to the speciality bra shop, but I didn’t realize it had closed and I didn’t want to battle finding staff in djs and myer. Wondering if anyone has feedback? I’m assuming I will have to be fastidious with the lingerie bag in the machine.

I only wear Kmart or best and less bras.

I never use a lingerie bag. My washing sort is clothes and towels!

A couple of the bras are approaching 2 years and are starting to look well loved but they have held up well considering they were $10!

That’s a good review. I wonder if the sizing is on the small side. I’m horrified to be an f.

I have some but mixed in with Big W and Target ones so can't remember how old each one is - Target are ancient the rest probably 1-2 years though.

I should probably but don't use a bag, I just forget too.

I can't remember the specific brand or actual bra I bought but yes from what I remember paying it would have been their own brand one

I have been wearing kmart bras for years. I am too much of a cheapskate to buy exy bras. The kmart ones are comfy and last a few years. I do use a lingerie bag to wash though.
I buy DD's bras from kmart too, more so because she is still growing.

They are definitely small sizing like most of their clothes are. :(

I wear an F/G in other brands and nothing at Kmart fits me.

I have been wearing them for years as they fit me really well and not much else does!
I am tall (so long torso) with very broad shoulders and also relatively big boobs, but Im not 'chubby' if that even makes sense.

They last really well actually, probably better than brand name bras.

ETA I think what I mean is that the cups are far apart - as I have wide shoulders my boobs seem to be too far apart for some brands!!

I wear Target bras. DD cup. The $15 t-shirt bras. I find them comfortable and I normally hate bras.

I haven't tried Kmart bras.

I have been wearing the Big W Hestia bras (22DD)for years now - usually about $20 / $25 when on sale. comfy sports bras/  tshirt / minimiser and some lacy ones - all wear well for years. I use a bag. (Mum always sticks Bras and Things wash bags in as a stocking stuffer!!)

I’ve tried them and they’re not supportive enough for me, only brand that suits me seems to be Berlei, I only buy them online from Myer when they have 40% off sales (f cup here too)

I’ve been looking for jiggling and I haven’t noticed any problems. But I suspect the sports bras are not going to cut it. Be interesting to see if the crop top over the top works.

Previously I used to get Triumph but that was a long time ago.

I've just bought four Kmart plus sized bras 16D
They're really good, very impressed
Only issue is I'm losing weight and heading towards a 16c/,14d and they don't seem to have a similar style for these sizes.

I bought a couple of cheap ones at Kmart post breastfeeding when I was still changing size but really over wearing maternity bras. I agree that the sizing is small. I needed to go up to an f also, and was similarly horrified.

I found them reasonably comfortable and supportive, but I had been wearing absolutely awful wire free maternity bras for the two years prior, so that was probably a relative thing. They lasted okay, except for the one my husband put in the dryer...

If you like triumph and know your size/style I have bought some on catch of the day for around $20, including sports bras.

I buy them cause they r cheap but the straps stretch very quickly would definitely not get 1-2 years out of them for like 6 months maybe.

Im a G cup - no matter what they say if I try to get into one of their G cup bras - I fall out.

I have been fitted properly and only wear Elomi now.
