In light of the current situation with COVID-19, it's important for all of us to stay safe, look after ourselves and others around us including staying at home. So we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to talk to you about being comfortable at home. Most of us, if we can, will be working from home on our computers, but let's be fair, it's highly unlikely you'll be wearing the same clothes you would wear when you go into work. After all, you want to be casual and comfortable whilst at home. No more skirts and boots, more like jeans and slippers!
When we think about comfort, for most women, we also think about our bras. When you're at home, you don't want to wear your moulded t-shirt bras or padded plunge bras, where you feel bolstered up. You want to wear a bra that is pretty and supportive, but extremely comfortable that you can stay in all day long. For some women, they may even decide not to wear a bra! Well, fair play!
For women who are looking for inspiration on bras and bralettes that offer both comfort and support, we have some great styles to show you. Bralettes have always been designed for functionality rather than fashion, but in the past couple of years, bralettes have made a huge name for themselves in the lingerie industry for versatility, amazing design and comfort. Women love them, and who can blame them! (If you haven't tried one yet, then we suggest you do!)
Cosabella Never Say Never Curvy Bralette
This is one of Knicker Locker's favourite bralettes, as it designed for the fuller busts, going up to bra sizes 28DD - 40FF with only 6 unique sizes. It has wide adjustable straps, power mesh lining in the cups and a soft elastic band for extra support and most of all, extreme comfort. What's not to like! We can guarantee you will want one in every colour!

B.Tempt'd Lace Kiss
The best thing about the Lace Kiss bralette is, it's extremely lightweight and comes in a variety of beautiful shades, so you don't just have to stick to white and black. It's has no back fastener, so the fabric is really soft and stretchy to slip over your head and it's only £15, so you can't really go wrong. It's a great bralette up to C/D cup for keeping stylish and comfortable in your home. (You can even get matching knickers!)

Keep busy and motivated
With home isolation on the cards for a while longer, it's important for us to keep busy and motivated at home. This might mean some fun yoga or pilates in your front room, or maybe a jog or walk in the lovely sunny weather. Just remember, it's still very important to keep your breasts supported when you are exercising, so the supporting muscles stay protected and there is minimal movement. This helps keep your natural shape and avoids you getting uncomfortable.
There are some great sports bras out there for all types of activities, but remember to pick the best impact level to suit your bra size and activity. You can find out more about sport bra impact levels here >

The best bit about this one, is it's in the SALE!
