If you’re a larger cup size you’ll know the kakness that is trying to find a beautiful-looking bra. (I’m a 32D and almost always end up wearing a 34C as the former is so tricky to find.) Fortunately, as the years have gone by more and more brands are waking up to the fact that there are women out there looking for larger cups but don’t want straps that look like seat belts or a hideous beige maternity-style monster while paying the earth for it and Ackermans is one of them.
The chain’s recently expanded (ha ha!) their lingerie line up with increased cup sizes, all the way up to a G cup and nope, there’s not a horror ‘granny’ bra in sight. They’re also currently running a special on two-pack bras giving you R30 off up until 15 February.
The news gets better! I’ve got Ackermans seven vouchers (they’re sent directly to your phone) worth R500 to give away so you can snap up a new bra (or two – they’re so reasonably priced) yourself. Entering is easy. Simply leave a comment telling me about the worst bra you’ve ever owned and perhaps my random number generator will take pity on you. (I once had a strapless that broke in a spectacular fashion and had to be held together at a wedding with SUPER GLUE. Gluing it together while wearing it was possibly a Very Stupid Idea too ‘cos when I finally took the bastard off he took a whole bunch of skin with him! You’ll be glad to have not heard the scream. I still think it finds my friends in the dark of night to haunt them in their dreams…)
Anyhoo… There’s another way to enter too! Hit me up on twitter saying ‘Hey @lipglossgirl! I’d love to win an #Ackermans lingerie voucher!’ and include the link to this post.
This competition closes at 5pm on Tuesday the 14th (if you win isn’t that a nice V-Day surprise?!) and is open to South African residents only.
Good luck girls!
