New Bras + a $200 Giveaway to Kohls

What new Bras?! Yes, that is right. I’ve got new bras and you can too! I love getting new bras but I don’t love shopping for them. There is something about bra shipping that is mostly terrible. Those things would be the fact you have to take everything off to try them on, half the ones you try on fit way way weird, and it can feel like an attack on your self-confidence. BUT a well fitting bra makes all the difference.

Did you know you are probably wearing the wrong bra size? Yeah, statistically  80% of women are wearing the wrong sized bra. What, what?! There are a million reasons for this – like our bodies changing all the time, never being properly measured, guess work, hand-me-downs, a lack of money to go bra shopping… things like that!

I went to Kohl’s the other day during their Bra Fitting Event to make sure I was wearing the correct bra size and to stock up on sports bras (it was getting bad y’all – I only owned one!) After being measured, I hit the racks to find my perfect styles. At the end of the day I walked out with three sports bras (one being a “lounge” bra!) and a t-shirt bra. As a larger busted lady, I always find that those styles fit me best and make me feel the most confident.

I know bra shopping is not the easiest, but a good bra is worth all the hassle! And with Kohl’s fitting event, large selection, and great prices, you cannot go wrong!

YOUR CHANCE TO WIN!
One lucky Oak + Oats winner will walk home with $200 to spend at Kohl’s! To enter, simple fill out the Rafflecopter below. All entries will be verified so no cheating! Good Luck!! XOXO

How do you feel about bra shopping? Have you been measured and fitted? Have you checked out Kohl’s new bra and pantie section? PSST: They also have swimsuits in!! 

  • I go bra shopping just about never, so this giveaway is perfect! I actually go so infrequently that last month when I had to buy a new bra for the first time in years, I forgot that I should try it on and definitely bought the wrong size. How can something so pretty feel so torturous? Needless to say, I could use a few new ones 🙂

  • I maybe go bra shopping once a year, if that. I usually just pick up an extra sports bra here and there.
    I like the lounge bra the best.

  • I dislike bra shopping normally, but I recently bough 4 bras (all nursing bras) because I basically have been wearing the exact same bra for 2 years… haha with little variation… (basically I had 2 back ups when my primary one was in the wash). Lets just say I threw it out as soon as I brought home the 4 new ones! I also have always wanted to go to a bra fitting event, I almost went to one like 3 or 4 years ago but was out of town for some reason that day…

    That lounge bra looks fabulous though! The one thing I am still lacking on is sports bras.

  • Amanda Buccieri

    I'm loving T-shirt bras….so comfy! I'm needing new bras after losing weight, so I'd love to win! Thanks for the chance 🙂

  • I hate bra shopping because they are so expensive, and I usually have to go to a department store like Dillard's to find my size. I can get sports bras anywhere though. I like a lightweight sports bra because (brutally honest moment here) I sweat like a full-grown man… so I don't need the extra insulation of a super thick bra contributing to that problem. lol.

  • Kayla Miller

    I almost never bra shop. I actually bought a cheap bra at a consignment shop (still new) and it's my best fitting bra, but they're so expensive and I hate trying them on.

  • Elle

    I don't go bra shopping that often since when I do go, I usually get a bunch of bras as once. I like basic, supportive t-shirt bras the most.

  • Bra shopping is DEF not my favorite, no place ever seems to have my size! But I actually just bought a new bra at Kohl's last week. And I'm loving it! Yay Kohls!

  • mami2jcn

    I like sports bras and I go shopping twice a year.

  • Nicole Mangum

    I am definitely a sports bra person. I usually shop for bra's about once a year? I love Soma for regular bras but I have problems finding supportive sports bras that I love

  • Linda

    I check out the bra section all the time when at stores or the mall. I like tshirt and push up bras.

  • kristin

    the yoga sports bra looks super comfy! I bra shop not often enough, usually when I notice that they are pretty worn out.

  • Julie Wood

    My favorite bra type is the full coverage with an underwire to give me support and I do not go bra shopping enough! It has been over a year.

  • Kohls is my FAVORITE place for sports bras! Comfy, affordable and totally awesome!

  • I used to bra shop a lot more when I worked at VS. It was also a lot less icky since I was just kind of browsing around work. Now it's definitely not my favorite thing. Those sports bras look super cute and comfy though! I love it!

  • i never go bra shopping because i hate it!!! but it's always nice to find the perfect one!

  • Eryn Ivey

    I seriously never go, but that's because I don't have much to support 😉

  • I kind of want to go bra shopping all the time, mostly because I need to and never do, ha! Razor back bras of any kind are my fave.

  • Chris

    I tend to end up bra shopping once every three or four months, usually when I get a bunch of coupons from Vicky's or if Kohl's has a big clearance sale on. My preference is for a racerback with a bit of push up, or a lounge bra for comfort.

  • Christa Hailey

    Well, I bought a new sports bra in September. Honestly, all my current regular bras were given to me by a friend who is the same size. They didn't fit her right and were brand new with tags. That was a huge blessing because I had been bra shopping like crazy and couldn't find anything that for right. And the ones she gave me for perfectly. Yay!

  • I recently bought some VS bras (about 2 months ago?) but before that, I hadn't been bra shopping in 2+ years. I like the light push up ones- a little lift but not extreme!

  • I love Nike sports bras, but these Kohl's one look incredible!

  • MintaBoggs

    It's been a while since I have been bra shopping!

  • Marimed

    These look like the perfect combo of cute and comfortable!

  • My favorite bra style is a nice razor back bra and I go shopping for bras every few months.

  • Meg Arthur

    I go bra shopping once or twice a year.

  • Ashley Bree Perez

    I love a good push up bra with a lot of support. 🙂

  • My favorite bra is just a t-shirt bra. I don't go that often.

  • wanda

    I always look for bras when I shop because of the hard to find size I need.
    I must have underwire too!

  • Camille

    I'm with you… I haven't been bra shopping in over a year. I hate it! I really don't have a favorite bra style, but I'm longing for something comfy and underwire-free at the moment!

  • Suzanne devaux

    I go like once or twice a year. My favorite are tshirt bras.

  • Bra shopping is basically one of my least favorite things in the entire world. HAHA.

  • Alison Tolar

    My favorite style of bra is a push up.I don't go bra shopping too often. I just go whenever I feel like my old bras are wearing out.

  • My favorite kind of bra is a push-up from VS or PINK. People say they're expensive, but the quality and longevity of their items is well worth their prices. I go bra shopping 2-3 times a year, especially after becoming an VS Angel. I love kohl's, but have never gotten a bra there before!

  • Kohls is one of my favorite stores! Oddly enough I don't think I've ever bought bras there. I'll have to take a look next time I'm there

  • I don't go bra shopping all that often, but when I do I love it! I love shirt bras because they are so soft and usually the lines can't be seen through shirt material. Great giveaway!

  • Kelsey Michele Heathers

    I go bra shopping twice a year, usually Jan and July during VS semi-annual sale! My favorite type of Bra is the VS Body-perfect coverage bra. Being a larger busted lady myself, I feel like this one is the most comfortable and best support.

  • I go bra shopping when I need one or there is a sale. I like the full coverage T shirt bra for coverage and support. Thank you for sharing this giveaway!

  • The T-shirt bra is my favorite. I shop for bras when I saw them in the store, usually a few times a year.

  • "hit the racks" 🙂 hehe — It's always so nice to have a perfect fit!

  • Kara L

    I don't have a favorite really…just as long as its comfy 🙂 I probably shop once a year for them but I may have to go to Kohls now to check out those sports bras. They are cute!

  • I am not sure if I have a favorite bar necessarily. I just wear whatever is needed for the moment. But I find sports bras to be the most comfortable;)

  • nicole dziedzic

    My favorite bra would have to be a sports bra, and I go bra shopping every few months or whenever I see something I like when I am out.

  • Birdiebee

    I go shopping about once a year for new bras. The two brands that I buy are Bali and Vanity Fair. I have to be very careful on the fit and comfort of the bra after having breast cancer/surgery.

  • kenny hall

    I like underwire bras but I don't go over too often

  • lifeskit

    I would have to say the sports bra.

  • I go as infrequently as possible! This giveaway would definitely be a good excuse 🙂

  • HS kraftmaking

    Tshirt style is my favorite. I usually go shopping once a year.

  • Jessica Elizabeth Hamilton

    I don't go that often, whenever I need a new one. I like underwire push up bras.

  • kbrooks

    I never go bra shopping. But I need to so this giveaway is perfect.

  • I go bra shopping when I need to and my favorite part is when I finally find one that fits. Then I buy one in every color.

  • JRFrugalMom

    My favorite bra type is a wireless bra, but I also spend plenty of time in sports bras and on special occasions I'll go for a push up.

  • jalapenomama

    I prefer the front close bras.
    And shop for bras about twice a year.
    form name Barbara Montag

  • Sandra Meaders

  • I neverrrr go bra shopping but I had to go to get nursing bras when I had my baby. Sports bras are definitely my favorite.

  • Sarah Hayes

    i need to go bra shopping asap. I like the t shirt bra

  • shellypeterson

    I like wireless bras and I do not go bra shopping often enough.

  • latanya t

    I like t-shirt bras.

  • Laurajj Jacobson

    Oh I really love the wireless bras! So comfortable! I have not been bra shopping for awhile….I really need to go and check out Kohls!

  • iris popescu

    I love a bra that is a push up bra, I don't have big breasts, so when I get a chance of a push up bra that works I choose that one! So the push up ones are best for me 🙂

  • I go bra shopping almost never. Its pretty much my least favorite thing to shop for and so I usely put it off as long as possible ;(

  • After recently having a baby, i need new bras like never before!

  • Colleen Boudreau

    My fave style is push up, and I go bra shopping about once a year.

  • Elena

    I like push up bras. I go bra shopping twice a year

  • AmandaSakovitz

    I love underwire bras. I go a few times a year.

  • Mommyofone Shanna

    I like push up – And I do not go nearly enough !!! lol

  • jenmalonee

    I like an under wire bra the most. I usually go bra shopping a few times/year.

  • T-short bras are my favorite style.
    I should go bra shopping more often, but bras are expensive and it's so hard to find a bra that fits just right!

  • Right now I'm just wearing nursing bras and they're the most unflattering things ever. I'm pretty sure I won't wear a proper fitting bra for the next ten years since pregnancy/nursing are so hard on your boobs and we're planning on having a few kids.

  • lefty22

    Like the Yoga Sports Bar, go bra shopping probably a couple times a year. Thanks~

  • Yesenia Salgado

    I love shopping for push-up bras

  • Lorina Padgett

    Every woman deserves to be fitted professionally for a bra several times in their life.

  • Kohl's always has a great selection of any and everything.

  • Bookworm9798

    Truly dislike bra shopping more than any other type of shopping!!

  • I love having an assortment of bras (sports bras, tshirt bras, lace bras, etc) – and Kohl's has such a huge intimates/bra department…

  • Starla

    That pink bra looks so comfy! I need to go in a few months- I always dread going, though!

  • Danielle

    I know it sounds weird, but I only recently really "discovered" Kohls. They do, indeed, have an excellent bra department. I looked high and low last year for a convertible bra that fit well and ended up finding it there!
