Plus size bras are designed to comfortably fit and support larger bra sizes. Modern plus size or full figure bras are available in a wide range of sizes and styles. Bra designers have finally realized that you don't have to sacrifice comfort to look beautiful, and the days of boring, white bras for plus size women are coming to an end!
The best bra for you will depend on your body shape as well as your size. Younger women or women with smaller breasts for their frame will look fab in a balconette bra or even a padded plunge bra. If you need more lift and support for your bust, a full coverage bra is the way to go. Many plus size women are more comfortable in soft cup bras, or bras with no underwires. In particular, full figured petite women often have difficulty with their underwires poking them under the arms. In this case, a soft cup bra will help you get the cup coverage you need without underwires that are too long. Don't be afraid to try a bra with molded cups. Although molded cup bra looks larger on the hanger, it won't add inches to your bust and it will give you excellent support.
The absolute most important factor when buying a plus size bra is proper fitting. A correctly fitting bra will lift your breasts to create an hourglass shape that flatters your curves. I highly recommend getting a professional bra fitting at a store that specializes in larger sizes, or calling my bra fit hotline at 1-888-262-4887 for help. Remember that your bra should never hurt! In the correct size, you will feel as good as you look.
