How Do Full Cup Bras Compare From Brand to Brand?

Bras are complex things. From looking at them though you might not think that. If you speak bra then you might not have any issues understanding the differences however if you're a novice (don't worry, we all had to start somewhere!) then things like balcony, half cup, padded, the full cup might sound a bit alien to you. So allow us to explain Full Cup Bras to you and how they may differ from brand to brand. Here's the scoop, and don't fret, it isn't rocket science, we promise!

So you wanna talk full cup bras? Here are the basics! They provide amazing coverage to maintain your modesty and will help you to feel supported throughout the day. These bras also give you a natural, well-rounded shape that compliments your silhouette, working flawlessly under all your clothes.

Prima Donna

Queen of sophistication and elegance, Prima Donna has plenty of full cup bras to pick from. So the question is, lace? Or smooth? Or hear us out, you could do half and half. The possibilities with this brand are endless! So let's delve in, shall we?

Prima Donna Deauville Comfort Bra in scarlet. What a show stopper this bra is. With a mixture of fabric and a sheer upper cup section, with added delicate embroidery, this bra is sure to add elegance to any lingerie drawer. Not forgetting this bra has a full cup which provides the full coverage for everyday wear! Fancy completing the set? Why not purchase the matching underwear(Matching underwear ladies can make you feel like you can conquer anything! Trust us!)

So let's talk all over lace. The Prima Donna Twist I Do Deep Plunge Balcony Longline is constructed of just that. All lace. With a deep plunging neckline, the whole bra is decorated with a soft semi-transparent all-over lace with a beautiful swirl and floral pattern. Gone are the stereotypes of full cup bras being just a smooth, out of date colour, Prima Donna is here to show you a full cup can be sleek and timeless. And yes this may be an all-over lace cupped bra but ladies, this is a full cup bra. Make sure you add this versatile piece to your collection. Wear as a bra or as outerwear. Style it however you feel comfortable but feel safe in the knowledge that this bra will provide you with full coverage, oh and looks super cute and feminine!

Smooth full cup bras. We know what you're thinking. Boring, dated and not for you. Sometimes, we couldn't agree more. So what happens when you need something under a form-fitting outfit? Why not check out Prima Donna Twist East End Padded Bra. A smooth full cup bra but with a modern twist. With a subtle lace back but smooth cups, this bra is simple but stunning to look at. The straps have a striped design which helps provide the perfect fit and adds an athleisure appeal. The cups are slightly padded but with full coverage which adds shape and compliments your chest. Add those matching panties for an understated sexy look.


All hail the lace Glossies Bra goddess. Gossard really knows how to make a full coverage all lace cup bra. Whether it's lace or sheer mesh, this brand is one to run to when you're after something a little more daring.

Gossard Glossies Lace Sheer Bra is a staple and we think every woman should own one. Flattering on all shapes and boasting a full coverage cup in a teardrop shape, this bra is striking and vibrant. Adorned with delicate lace and complete with fully adjustable straps which can be converted at the back to a cross back, this is perfect for summer under tank tops. Oh, it's also super lightweight, so you'll feel like you're wearing nothing. Perfect!

If you like the more heavy-duty lace look then don't worry, Gossard has you covered there too (quite literally!) The Gossard Glossies Lotus Sheer Bra has a flirty feminine finish with its thicker floral embroidered look. The unlined but full coverage cups, again in that teardrop shape, are perfect for flattering all necklines and is perfect for under those plunge dresses and tops we all have!

Curvy Kate

Known for its inclusivity of sizes, Curvy Kate has a huge range of full cup bras. So if you're looking for vibrance then you're in the right place. Let's take a look at some of the classic bras they have, perfect colours for summer and perfect for your confidence. Let's go!

Curvy Kate Wonderfully Full Cup Bra, ideal for everyday wear! Home to full cup coverage that will keep you feeling secure and comfortable, the 4-part cup design offers amazing support and lift, complementing your shape and providing superior comfort. With a half sheer and half fabric cup, it adds some fun to your everyday lingerie. And before we forget to mention, this bra comes in plenty of colour choices, so whether you're a basics girl or fancy some colour, guaranteed this collection will have something for you!

Now if you fancy something a little more out there, something for a more seductive appeal then we have got the perfect bra for you. The Scantilly By Curvy Kate Unzipped Plunge Bra, with a black mesh unlined full coverage cup, which is finished off with an overbust zipper strap detail, will certainly add a sensual appeal. Sometimes we all need to branch out of our comfort zones, and this bra is definitely going to do that. Combined with the matching panties, you are sure to feel confident and sexy. (You go girl!)


We all know Panache is a well-known name in the lingerie game. With a huge collection of styles, the brand has plenty of full cup bras to pick from!

Panache Tango Balcony Bra is a balcony style bra but with full cup coverage. So if you've ever thought balcony is just for a half coverage, it's time to think again! With its 3-part non-padded cups which are reinforced with an underwire, this is sure to make sure your bust is fully supported.

Sometimes we just want to reach for that everyday comfort. You know what we mean, that trusty t-shirt style bra that you have worn to an inch of its life. Well, it's summer soon and it's time things got an upgrade, don't you think? So why not check out the Panache Cari Moulded Spacer Bra, a chic and classic design with soft foam full coverage cups, that are underwired for extra support, as well as being lightweight and breathable. Excellent for summer! The straps also convert to a racerback, so basically, two bras in one, throw on the matching panties and you really are ready to tackle the day! Even if it's just lounging about watching TV all day! Do it in comfort and style!

Now You Know!

So now you know that full cup bras are not that dated and boring style you might have once thought! Coming in a variety of different styles, from sheer, to balconette, to padded, whatever it is you're after, there's always a full cup style for you. Support and being comfortable in your underwear are the key to radiating confidence and it's something we believe every woman deserves to feel. So get looking through our full cup range and pick your favourites. Summer is coming and it's time for a lingerie update. We can't wait! (Cue us racing to buy the Glossies sets in every colour!)
