OUR BIRTH & LIFE
Owner & Designer of Bras By S
Hi, I’m Shorina! While I’m not caring for my young son and family, I am caring for my business – Bras By S!
When I was younger, my mum and I joked about how I needed to become a “bra designer” when I grew up. We had this ongoing joke throughout my entire life because she struggled to find beautiful and affordable bras and lingerie. I then grew up with the same problem.
When I started wearing lingerie, I found I had two options, pay HUGE amounts or wear boring pieces. Both options seemed like I was losing out somehow, and why? Because of the size I needed.
In 2016, I had a life-changing event. I was in a car accident which caused a major back injury and made me reconsider everything I had planned for myself and my future. It was the most difficult time of my life, by far. I struggled mentally, emotionally and physically.
As I spent my days on bed rest reconsidering what to do with my future, the only thing I was certain about, was that I wanted to help the women around me. Which is when I started studying counselling, focusing on self-love and confidence of women.
After months of focusing on the negatives, I put on one of my pieces of lingerie (which was hand-made because nothing fit in stores) and I felt the best I had in months. That’s when the idea of Bras By S was born!
I knew that lingerie had some kind of magical power – it made women look at themselves differently. It helped women to see their own beauty and find confidence which they had never felt before.
No matter what your size is, you should feel that self-love and confidence. Your size should not determine the way you look and feel about yourself and I want to shout that from my lingerie businesses virtual rooftops!
Since 2017 (when we launched!), I have had the privilege of spending my days encouraging self-love and confidence to women through our gorgeous and affordable pieces of lingerie.
Bras By S is only a small business ran from a home office, so every single order and customer means the absolute world to me, thank you for supporting my dreams and I can’t wait for you to feel the self-love and confidence that you deserve!

"Received my item after waiting a little while (it was so popular so out of stock), they were so helpful keeping me updated all the time! The item is gorgeous and so so affordable, very different from what I've seen in store and if I had I'd expect it to be $100 which it is no where near! Thanks xx"

"Bras By S is an incredibly affordable store with beautiful pieces for every person.
What's even more impressive is how size inclusive every piece is, with an accurate sizing chart at the bottom of each piece so no one is left out. Many other lingerie stores don't cater to people with bigger bodies and because inclusion is an important value of mine, it makes shopping at Bras By S an easy choice.
On top of this, their customer service is amazing. When I left off the apartment number on my address the issue was rectified in under 10 minutes via email, I've never had a store respond so quickly and with so much care. The actual pieces I bought were multiple elastane body harnesses and they fit perfectly. Each one has it's own unique style, they all can be dressed up or down by adding a bralette or bra or wearing them beneath a mesh shirt and they're so versatile - definitely an added staple to my wardrobe. They're also great quality, the elastane doesn't stretch out and become loose after a view uses so I know they'll last a while and they're a really affordable alternative to buying actual leather harnesses which can set you back $300!
The last thing I'll say that I love about Bras By S is that they're located in Australia, with customer service based here and a great returns policy in case things don't end up working out. As opposed to wrangling with dodgy buyers on the internet without reliability, Bras By S is based in Newcastle, have free shipping on orders of a certain price and therefore the delivery is local and takes just a few days. I've been referring the store to all my friends interested in trying out body harnesses and also those who want gorgeous bodysuit and bra sets on a budget, everyone should definitely give them a go!"

"Shorina is a huge inspiration and a wonderful example of creating the life you want, working hard to be successful, creating a meaningful existence, and positively contributing to the lives of others. Then, Bras by S caters to my plus size requirements in styles that are true to me and affordable. They are all-inclusive to every age/shape/size/taste and have become a tool that inadvertently contributes to the growth/success of my profile as they serve to validate my project in my mind, encourage/motivate me to continue and are the perfect store to direct those women that have contacted me looking for recommendations/direction.
Bras by S has become my favourite lingerie store thanks to the story behind them, their range/affordability/service quality and their support for self-love/body positivity. I'm so thankful to have found them and genuinely appreciate their existence 💕.
You care about your customers as not only valued clients, but as women. Bras By S looks to me like it’s a haven for comfort, trust, empowerment, positivity and support."
