Bra Buying Tips for Curvier Ladies

12 December 2012

For many curvy women, the thought of shopping for lingerie is enough to fill them with terror. For voluptuous women, finding nice underwear can be a thankless task. Many underwear manufacturers seem to assume that curvy ladies are not concerned about looking good like their less shapely counterparts and manufacture garments for larger cup sizes which may give support but are not appealing on the eye.  Curvy girls need not get disheartened, however, as there are some great brands out there who cater for the curvy lady.

Of course, lack of choice has not been the only problem experienced by women with curves. Quite often they simply do not know what to look for in a bra and do not know their measurements and this can lead to ill-fitting bras which do nothing for their figures. To avoid any more lingerie mishaps, below is a great guide to buying bras for curvier figures.


It is estimated that around 85% of women, of all shapes and sizes, are wearing the wrong bra size. This can be disastrous not only because it will make even the most gorgeous of outfit look bad but, it also means that breasts will not be getting the right level of support they need, which could cause sagging, and bras which do not fit correctly are likely to be uncomfortable.

In order to ensure that they buy the right fit, women should always get a professional bra fitting. Once they have done so and they know their size, they can buy more affordable bras online or on the high street but, by having a professional fitting every few years, they can buy with confidence and get a great foundation to build their outfit on.


When it comes to shopping for bras, curvy ladies should stay away from cheap and novelty lingerie and instead go for affordable but well-made brands such as Masquerade bras and Ultimo bras. Well-made bras are much more likely to offer the support and comfort that curvy ladies need to look good.

Brands for the curvier figure

Voluptuous ladies should aim to buy from companies, or choose brands, which have been designed with curvier ladies in mind. Curvy ladies have different requirements from their lingerie than less shapely women, so buying standard underwear is not always the best option. Brands which have been designed with curves in mind will likely be a much better fit overall.


Support is of the utmost importance to curvy ladies and it should never be sacrificed for style or sexiness.   Luckily, with brands such as Fantasie, Freya and Panache, there are plenty of sexy bras, with lots of built in support, to choose from, so there really is no need to sacrifice support when looking for style.
