Battle the Bulge with Warner’s No Side Effects Bras

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

After years of wearing ill-fitting, clumsy and uncomfortable bras, I have discovered the perfect bra. This bra has made me enjoy wearing a bra again. My old bras were so annoying to wear. I know they didn’t fit me properly with the straps constantly falling down to my elbow. It was embarrassing to have to be picking at myself out in public. I’m sure people who saw me trying to stealthily fix myself wondered why that person keeps reaching inside in her shirt. Not my finest moments.

And me in a tank top? Never. Between the straps at my elbow and my “side-bulge”  aka “sleevage”, the unwanted underarm bulge, I was way too self-conscious to show that much skin in public.

I’ve been wearing my Warner’s No Side Effects bra since arriving in Ontario a few weeks ago and I can’t get over how comfortable it is. By the end of the first day of wearing it, I realized that I didn’t have to even once pick at my bra or adjust myself. I actually forgot I was wearing a bra!


It’s so humid here so I’ve even been wearing some tank tops and actually like how I look in them. This bra has a a unique extra side-coverage panel along the flexible foam cup that effectively contains the dreaded side-bulge.

I’m  not alone in my bra issues. Warner’s and Olga commissioned a survey and learned that 2/3 of Canadians have experienced side bulge and 94% would be interested in purchasing an affordable bra that corrects this problem.

Ladies….this bra is the solution you have been waiting for. Check out the before and after on this model’s picture. See what I mean about the side bulge? Mine was much worse than hers!


Another important aspect of finding a good bra is a vanity thing with me. How does it look on me? Does it make my boobs look weird? Does it give me the “lift” I’m looking for? I thought it looked great. It held everything in place and gave me the boost I was looking for. I feel confident, sexy and good about my appearance. I need to buy more of these bras so I’ll have something to wear when it’s in the wash!

Both the Warner’s No Side Effects and Olga’s On Your Side bras are now in Canada and you can buy them at Hudson’s Bay in-store and online (check out the Amethyst one!).  They have a SRP of $40.

What do you look for in bra?
