A generous bust is a seductive advantage. To show your femininity in the best light, selecting fine lingerie, particularly bras, can be a delicate task. Highlighting your body type and ensuring optimal support of the chest are both essential criteria.

The essential rules for choosing the right bra for large busts

Beyond a D cup, certain features are essential. Because of the weight of the breasts carried by the back and the shoulder muscles, it’s crucial to choose a style that can guarantee excellent support of the bust. We favor underwire styles with wide straps that won’t dig into the skin, as well as a wide and firm back band.

Also, as with every type of lingerie, knowing your bra size is essential to feel comfortable. Before a purchase, it is always possible to ask advice from customer service, who will be able to guide you in taking your measurements. To be sure that the bra fits, it must perfectly hug the chest without creating bumps, gaping at the top, or overflowing near the underarm. The breasts should also be well surrounded. There are molded cups for optimal comfort as well as styles with lateral reinforcement to offer firm support of the chest.

A golden rule that applies to all women, no matter their body type: opt for quality lingerie. Only the best brands of women’s lingerie that offer high-end undergarments guarantee luxurious materials, comfortable structures, fine fabrics and innovative materials for unmatched aesthetics and real well-being on a daily basis.

Underwire bras lift the bust and distribute the weight

Equipped with metal boning that gives them structure, underwire bras are highly recommended for women with voluptuous chests. Also, spacer bras, made of an elastic fabric mesh with three-dimensional variable geometry that offers hold and flexibility, are just one innovation by brands that specialize in deep-cup bras such as Simone Pérèle, Antinea by Lise Charmel, Chantelle, etc. This textile, also used in bodysuits, offers natural and light support.

There is a wide selection of underwire bras, available in a vast range of sensual colors and patterns. Available up to a J cup, the Deauville bra, flagship design of the Prima Donna brand, combines a satin effect, sophisticated embroidery and hints of transparency to create an elegant piece of lingerie. The durable cups lift the chest and the side reinforcement centers it nicely, while the shoulder straps, wide enough for optimal comfort, are embellished with guipure. It comes in several colors, from light blue to peach pink, without forgetting jet black or café au lait, among others.

Full-cup bras

With a reassuring design, full-cup bras perfectly hug the breasts. Designed without padding, they do not compress the bust but also do not add the impression of volume. A true ally of generous chests, this style is recommended from a C-cup size up. The bra from the Cameo line by lingerie brand Freya combines perfect support with a very flattering scalloped neckline detail. The sheer effect at the top of the cup brings a touch of glamor.

Minimizer bras

Some women would like to smooth down their bust, which they consider too generous. The minimizer bra is made for them. This cut artificially reduces the volume of the breasts without ever compressing them. The minimizer slightly flattens the bust by balancing and redistributing its volume. At Wacoal, the molded slimming style offers a shaping effect that ensures harmonious curves. Not to mention the delicate embellishments: a transparent tulle back and chic decorative straps.

Deep-cup demi-cup bras

Norah Empreinte

Like the balconette style, the deep-cup demi-cup bra is a “semi-full cup” specially designed for women with large busts. The Empreinte brand has created the Norah style, a resolutely feminine undergarment available up to a G cup. With a shape that is both reassuring and modern, it defines elegant arches in polka dot patterns paired with sheer embroidery for an infinitely sensual effect.

Push-up bras

It is often mistakenly believed that the push-up bra is reserved for small busts because of its ability to give an impression of volume. However, this ubiquitous style of women’s lingerie is not intended to inflate the chest. On the contrary, with its cut that re-centers the breasts, above all it lifts the them for a sensual cleavage effect. For luscious women who would like to play the seduction card, this style worn under a V-neckline top is irresistible.

Also, trendy cuts like a bandeau bra or triangle bra are also available with underwires for better support. When it comes to lingerie, the choices are endless. Furthermore, luscious beauties will surely enjoy treating themselves to a lingerie set, such as a corset or a bodysuit, designed to guarantee unmatched comfort for women with generous busts.
