Bigger Bras - The 3 Things You Need To Avoid

Many large busted and plus size women struggle to find bigger bras that look great and fit well.

And, while bra shopping for most women can be frustrating even at the best of times, for those who wear full figure bras this challenge is doubly true.

But, it doesn't have to be.

Once you understand what things to avoid and what to concentrate on, bra shopping can be quite enjoyable.

Let's take a closer look.

Bigger Bras

Keep in mind that small bras, petite bras and even average size brassieres are designed to fit quite differently than bigger bras.

And, since support is not a big issue lingerie brands that cater to smaller bra sizes tend to concentrate more on the design of the brassiere.

So, even if they potentially offer bigger bra sizes, the likelihood that you'll get a bra that fits really well is not great since these bras are geared to a smaller and less supportive fit.

Better to focus on brands that are specifically designed for comfort and support in larger bras such as:

These types of bras have the benefits of wider and deeper bra cups, wider bra straps, and wider side panels that prevent side spillage, which makes for a more comfortable fit.

Choosing The Wrong Bra Size

This may seem obvious and common sense. But, many women are still wearing the same bra size that they wore 20 years ago.

But, as we age, have children, gain or lose weight, and have surgeries, our bodies are constantly changing.

And, as our bodies change, bra sizes change. As a result it's important to be properly fitted on a regular basis.

If, it's been awhile since you've been fitted and you're not sure what size you are, or need help finding the right bra size, contact the lingerie section of your local department store and ask when they are having a bra fitting clinic

Book a fitting. It's quick, painless and best of all, usually free.

Buying A Bra Without Trying It On

This is a big no-no that many women commit for the sake of saving time.

Unfortunately it rarely works and usually ends up costing more time and frustration when you discover the brassiere that you bought doesn't fit and has to be returned.

Even the very best bras vary a lot in sizing, depending on which lingerie facilit they were manufactured in.
