I recently shared a list of 10 of the best Polish lingerie brands. In it, I talked about why brands from this country typically offer an extensive size range. One much more extensive than we’re used to seeing from brands elsewhere in Europe, or in the US. I’m not just talking about cup sizes either, but band sizes too.
Chic, stylish plus-size lingerie can often seem hard to find. In Poland though, it’s not at all uncommon for lingerie brands to make their bras in a 40 band and above. Two of those featured below go up to a 50 band size. And there’s even one in the previous list that goes up to a 60 band!
While researching these two lists, I didn’t come across anyone making small-band and small-cup sizes such as a 30A. Luxury brands were few and far between. And there’s much less emphasis on nightwear and loungewear than on the standard bra and brief set. For pretty much anything else though, it seems there is a Polish lingerie brand out there that offers it.
Here are ten more lingerie brands from Poland that are worth a look, whatever bra size you wear:
Gorteks makes a bit of everything. There are everyday and fashion bras, bodysuits, nightwear and even hosiery. The brand’s designs are not overly complicated, but they’re pretty. Think floral prints, lace overlays and a fair amount of satin. Gorteks is budget-friendly, with bra prices going from around $25 to $35. Sizes include 30-44 bands and Polish A-J cups.
Kris Line produces simple basics, prettier bras and also swimwear. From what I can tell, their online shop is for retailers only. However, you can buy their lingerie through other websites such as BraStop and Lace Lingerie. Although a little tricky to get hold of, especially in the States, this is a very popular Polish brand. Bras cost roughly $25-$60 and sizes cover an awe-inspiring 28-50 band and C-O cup range.
Not to be confused with UK lingerie brand By Caprice, Caprice is a Polish lingerie and swimwear label. They use French and Italian fabrics, but handle the manufacturing at home in Poland. The brand focusses on trend-led design. Currently, that means lots of strapping, cut-outs and high leg lines. Bra prices run from roughly $40 to $100, and sizes from 28-40 bands and Polish A-H cups.
Ava is a lingerie and swimwear brand offering band sizes 32-44 and Polish cup sizes A-L. They have a strong emphasis on everyday lingerie. That doesn’t mean it’s all smooth, beige t-shirt bras though. They do make that stuff, but also printed bras and ones with lace trims. Ava also offers a few nursing bras. Bra prices start at a very affordable $20 and don’t go far above $30.
Kostar is another very budget-friendly Polish lingerie brand. Bras start at barely over $10, the most expensive one being under $35. They carry many nursing bras, which make up close to a third of the styles. Kostar makes both basics and ‘everyday pretty’ sets. Sizes span 30-48 bands and Polish A to K cups.
Roza is a low-cost, fashion-focused lingerie brand from Poland. Their styles tend to veer much more towards the ‘sexy’ than the everyday. Roza is an excellent brand to look for if you want a set with a matching garter belt. They often also make matching stockings for their sets. How cool is that?
Roza doesn’t have an e-boutique, but they have numerous online stockists such as Essili. Expect bra prices of around $20-$40. Sizes, however, are somewhat limited compared to other Polish lingerie brands, covering 30-38 bands and A-E cups.
Konrad has another unusually expansive size range, offering 28-50 bands and A-M cups. They produce both simple everyday sets and more elegant ones with lace and embroidery. Bras cost from around $40 up to a little under $60. And if you check out their sale section, they offer huge reductions on older styles.
Gaia creates a lot of good, simple basics for your lingerie drawer. What they excel in though are fun and color! They’re not afraid of a quirky print and don’t shy away from bold and busy patterns. Sizes include 30-48 bands and Polish A-L cups. Prices are once again on the lower end, with no bras above $40 and many for half that.
Benefit (no, nothing to do with the makeup brand) has a lot to offer. Besides regular ol’ lingerie, they also sell maternity, pretty post-mastectomy lingerie, and even post-surgery bras. They’re affordable too. Prices go from approximately $25 to a little below $40. Band sizes include 32 to 40 and cup sizes go from B to I.
Vena is available to buy online through retailer Verona. They offer 30-42 bands and A-J cups. (Though the larger cup sizes don’t seem to be available combined with a large band size). Vena creates a mixture of molded and unlined bras. It’s the lowest-priced brand of all from today’s list. Bras start at only $15 or so and go up to just a little over $25.
