Large Cup Bra - If you're like many women, shopping for bigger bras can be incredibly frustrating.
Fortunately when you know where to shop for plus size bras and intimate apparel, and which bra styles are lingerie drawer "must haves" lingerie shopping becomes easy and fun.
Where to shop for large bras? The first and obvious choice is the womens lingerie section of your local department store, or plus size womens wear store.
When shopping locally keep in mind that bra sizes and styles can vary from one manufacturer to another, so it's important to try on any brassieres before you buy them.
Online lingerie shopping is another great time saving option that offers a greater variety of beautiful plus size bras and comfy intimate apparel. If you opt to shop online be sure to follow the manufacturer's size charts and return policy.
Here are a four types of bras that are must haves for your lingerie drawer...
Minimizer Bra - this brassiere is designed for DD bras and larger. How do they work?
plus size bras re-distribute breast tissue away from the front area and towards the underarm and the center front. This reduces and flattens the breast by up to one cup size giving the appearance of a smaller bust-line.
These large cup bras are available with or without underwire, seamed or seamless... in cotton, polyester, or microfiber with or without lycra and beautiful trims such as lace, satin, and mesh.
Womens Sports Bras
Frequent exercising places additional stress on breast tissue and can cause permanent damage. Wearing one of today's popular high impact sports bras will help prevent damage.
The best sports bras range in support from high impact (joggers need extra support!) to low impact.
Depending on your activity and exercise level you'll probably want at the very least a running sports bra, a comfy zip front sports bra and one of the underwire sports bras.
Plus size sports bras are available with or without a front closure (known as front closure sports bras), in soft stretch cup, racer back (a very comfortable style for just about everyone), seamless shelf...and even a nursing sports bra style for expectant mothers!
Plus Size Strapless Bras
Strapless or backless bras ...Ideal for strapless dresses and outfits with plunging necklines - no plus size wardrobe would be complete without a come-hither sexy plus size strapless bra.
Today's strapless and backless bras are surprisingly supportive and quite comfortable.
They are usually designed with wider sides for additional support. Most are underwire bras that feature good support and a triple-hook (or more) back closure.
If you need more support, consider
longline bras. This large cup bra style has a great waist slimming effect and is a great choice for dresses and blouses that require a smooth silhouette.
T Shirt Bras
The T-shirt bra also known as the seamless molded bra should be at the top of every womans lingerie list.
These full figured bras have a smooth and seamless shape that is ideal for clingy cotton shirts and tighter fitting clothing.
Smooth and seamless full bras are available in a large range of brassiere styles - from the seamless
plus size push up bra and the U plunge bra (for those special outfits), to underwire bras and wirefree bras, there is something for everyone!
