10 Gorgeous Plus Size Bras That Celebrate Your Curves

  |   By Laurie Shapiro

Gone are the days of utilitarian plus size bras that put the emphasis on “full” rather than “figure.” If you’re a woman with exceptional curves, you don’t need to be covered up with full coverage cups to get great support and lift. There are more options than ever for gorgeous, sexy bras that flaunt your enviable cleavage.

So what’s the difference between plus size and full bust? A lot of people get them confused or figure they’re one and the same. Plus size (or full figure) bras have an expanded band size, usually beginning at 38-40. While many women who wear larger bands need a full cup as well, there are also women who require smaller cups. Full bust bras, on the other hand, have an expanded cup range (from DD-L). These bras have bands from 28-38.

It’s easier than ever to find fun, fashionable, and supportive bras in these expanded size ranges. Our top ten picks have band sizes up to 50, with cup sizes B-K. You’ll find rich, jewel toned colors, satins and laces, plunging necklines, and decorative straps. There are demi cup, balconette, front closure, and wireless styles. From everyday lovelies priced as low as $25.00 to special occasion bras that really wow, these glamorous plus size bras are sure to make you feel like a million!
