hey everyone!! I’m so excited to share this with you today! I’ve been looking for beautiful lingerie that is ethically made and for large cup sizes and Uye Surana answered my prayers! Their gorgeously detailed lingerie is designed and made in New York and comes in soon many lovely shapes, colors, and sizes. My sister’s an A cup and has always been able to find bralettes wherever she goes. And growing up in China, most lingerie stores there didn’t even carry any bras past a C cup. I am sooooo happy to have found such an aesthetically beautiful lingerie brand that fits AND is made in the USA!
As a small band, large cup customer who wears from a US 28H to 32F, it can be really hard to find pretty bralettes that have the support I need. Uye Surana is an absolute godsend for me: I feel so pretty in my fairy-tale Lauren bra in 30G, but it's totally functional and I can wear it out without feeling sad and droopy - in fact, I keep trying to find more deep v-neck shirts to show off the center straps!
Ordering from Uye is super easy and the care that goes into each order really shows. When I inquired about doing a custom Claire colorway, Lohla went out of her way to help make this a possibility during the busy holiday season, which was very kind. While it can be hard to wait while they're working on my pieces, it's well worth the time that they spend to make it right. My custom Claire in lavender quartz flora is so stunning and I look forward to trying out more custom colorways!
But beyond the actual lingerie itself, I couldn't be happier to support such an innovative, inspiring brand. Monica, the designer, is so wonderful - when I dropped by to to pick my pieces up I was able to chat with her a bit and it is so easy to see how passionate she is about her craft. She is also incredibly receptive to feedback and fit notes, which is fantastic as a harder to fit customer! So while their pieces are at the higher end of my budget, their prices reflect the quality of their work and ethical, sustainable values of their brand. I would much rather spend a bit more money to support Uye Surana than purchasing from a fast-fashion brand with cheap prices, poor labor conditions, and derivative designs!

I absolutely adore this set. It's the perfect mix of demure and daring, and I love how supportive Uye Surana bralettes are. The quality is lovely. [Uye Surana customer service] chose this size for me when I emailed them, and it's perfect!
I always feel fierce AF in Uye Surana! I want all the straps, cutouts, and interesting shapes designers can give me. Uye Surana makes my favorite bralettes because they're cup-sized, supportive, and ridiculously luxurious! Since I wear a hard to find size, I live by indie designers who do custom orders.

First of all, this bralette is gorgeous. The "honey blush" color of the silk and lace is stunning, especially with the sheer white floral embroidered mesh. I really like the lattice detail as well.
The band and cups are both TTS. I'm so glad Uye Surana makes custom sizes! The cups fit well...The matching knickers and crop cami are great as well and the whole set looks so nice together. I found mine to be really well constructed...and I'm super happy with the quality of everything.

Late night lingerie post! I recently got this set from @uyesurana and I’m in love! They make bralettes by band and cup size rather than SML…a godsend for busty ladies like myself!

@uyesurana Claire set in Rose Petal...I'm in love!!!!! Talk about an ethical indie brand! They handmake garments in waste reducing ways and hand dye with natural materials. Could it get any better?! ...The Luna cami is so perfect for #lingerieasouterwear I could die. The embroidery is so soft and paired with honey gold silk trim. Mm.
You guys are great! The eyelash bra fits super great and feels perfectly supportive. I super appreciate you taking the time to help me find a good fit with the bralettes. I spend a lot of time trying to find well-made underwear that's made by people being treated well, and you guys are rad.

I am doing okay on the bra front so I wanted to dip a toe in the bralette pond. I have to say, I'm impressed. I was expecting a nice looking, lounge-around-the-house, lacey little number with negative support. What I got was a surprisingly supportive, sturdy, very sexy and very comfy bralette that I'd feel comfortable going out on errands in (but not quite trampoline jumping or work quite yet). The price point is a little steep and it did hurt a tiny bit paying for it but I have to say, upon receiving it. It's totally worth it. The customer service at Uye Surana was excellent and they custom made this bralette [in my size]. If you can afford to get it (or feel like treating yourself to something gorgeous to layabout the house and feel sexy in), DO IT. You won't regret it.

These are more supportive and comfortable than any of the underwire bras I usually wear!
