DD+ plus bras have a bad reputation for lacking the fun and curve appeal of the small lingerie styles. Brands have been criticised in the past for altering the style of a bra collection for the larger cup sizes. But we believe it shouldn’t be this difficult to find supportive, flattering bras in DD+. Every woman deserves fabulous lingerie that fits like a glove and gives you a confidence boost, no matter your size! The average UK bra size is a 36DD compared with a 34B just a few years ago. So, now is the time for lingerie brands to step up their game and focus on the larger cup sizes. The DD+ revolution has already begun and there are incredible brands delivering stunning bras that work. Curvy Kate, Elomi and Sculptresse are some of our favourites, but we will get to the recommendations soon don’t worry. Firstly, here is some advice from our expert team about how to flatter your DD+ bust.
We know the struggle of trying to find bras that are practical and stylish, giving you curvaceous women the support you need. But struggle no more! Follow this simple advice and you will be on your way to owning a flawless lingerie drawer you love. First things first you need to measure your bra size properly. Either book a bra fitting in a store and get professionally measured or you can measure your bra size at home. Don’t skip this step! Think back to the last time you measured your bra size … can’t remember? Then now is the time. Knowing your true bra size is a must if you want to find fuller-bust lingerie that fits.
Now you know your size, you can start searching for your next DD+ bra. We recommend you look for bras with wider straps and a thicker band. Not everyone knows this but the majority of your bust support is in the band, not the straps. Second, we always suggest underwired bras for larger cups sizes. Underwire just gives you that extra support and lift to define and shape your curves. Going for a full cup bra is also a good idea for DD+ as this gives you more coverage so there is no spillage. Full cup bras rise higher to cover more of your bust than a balcony bra or a t-shirt bra, so you feel supported and secure all day. But, there is nothing to say you can’t opt for another style. Plus size plunge bras are a great option for flaunting your assets or wearing under a low-cut top. Full cup bras are usually visible under deep necklines so try both styles to find what works with your wardrobe. At the end of the day there are no rules! You can wear whatever bra style you want. It’s all about what feels right on you so search on Belle Lingerie for your next fuller-bust bra staple. Below are our top picks for curvy brands that shine!
