Despite the wealth of girls who stuff their bras with tennis balls, socks, gels, and padding, there are plenty of girls complaining about the opposite problem. Navigating the lingerie store can be a tricky task for plus-sized shoppers, especially those with bra sizes ranging from DDs all the way to Ns. Sure there are plenty of bras that offer plus size support, but very few of them provide what plus size girls are really looking for – something cute, something sexy, and most importantly, something that shows off those curves! So say goodbye to the matronly 5” wide shoulder straps, complicated 18 hook-and-eye closures, pillow sized padding (like DDs need any extra…), unattractive tan fabric, and old lady lace. Check out the following list of sexy (but supportive) plus size bras.
5 Way Convertible Plus Size Bra – Hips and Curves
Hips and Curves was featured in Vogue Italia for its “plus size lingerie for full-figured divas.” The only cheap aspects of their lingerie are the prices, ranging from $20-$40 for super sexy, super sleek bra styles.
Although there is a variety of styles, ranging from cute and comfortable to hot and heavy, the 5 Way Convertible bra is a go-to choice for its versatility. Wear it with a halter, tank top, tube top, plunging neck line, racer-back, or your favorite comfy tee. The bra comes in classic black, nude, and white and is available on their website for $28.95.
Smoothing Underwired Moulded Strappless Bra – Elomi
That’s right ladies! A plus size strapless bra that STAYS PUT! The foam molded seamless cups hug the contours of your body and create a smooth finish under form fitted tops. Added support comes in the form of powernet wings. The detachable straps and adjustable hooks give you plenty of options for comfort and style. This sassy bra is available in nude and black on the Elomi website for $69.
Satin and Lace Bra – Evans
Finally! Something lacy, something satin, and most importantly, something RED, brought to you by Evans, an elegant, plus-size woman’s clothing line based in the U.K. Available up to a size 48F, this foxy red bra is perfect for Valentines, anniversaries, and all other sexy occasions. The lace lining, bow detail, and ruched straps give this bra a truly unique look. This bra can be yours for £25 from the Evans website.
T-Shirt Underwire Print Bra – Avenue
If you’re bored of solid colors, try Avenue’s adorable polka-dotted t-shirt underwire print bra. This super-soft, full coverage, underwire bra may be the most comfortable bra on our list, but that doesn’t mean it sacrifices aesthetic appeal. The ballet back with three hook-and-eye closures provides fashionable support. This bra is available for $36 (buy 2 or more and save $5 on each) on Avenue’s online shop.
Don’t forget, they may be able to buy whatever they want at Victoria’s Secret, but those flat chested skinny-minnies would probably give it all up to have sexy curves like yours. So flaunt your stuff with support and style. These bras will make you feel comfortable and chic, with or without a top layer.
