Plunge Bras For The Larger Bust

May 20, 2012

Plunge bras are not just for smaller busts wanting that ‘hello boys’ effect.  Despite larger cup bras not being the easiest to buy, there is a variety of styles out there which means you’re not limited to balconettes.

As my boobs continued to develop through my twenties I ended up believing that the only style I could wear was a balconette; a design that many larger cupped bras are produced in because of their flattering silhouette and supportiveness.  Since being properly fitted I’ve come to know that wearing a plunge is indeed still possible for me.  In fact, as I’ve found out that my boobs are naturally close set, balconettes don’t suit me so well and plunging bras are perfect for a bust like mine.

I love proving that big bras don’t have to be frumpy and some of my current favourites are simply cute and look pretty as heck!

Dorothy Plunge Bra
Boux Avenue
I’m frankly quite gutted that the Dorothy bra from Boux Avenue only goes up to a G cup when some of their other lines are an H (and while I’m here the lack of 28 backs is also frustrating).  It would be nice to see them extend the more trendy looking ranges to give more choice to those of us who need a larger cup and appreciate cute designs.   I would so buy this bra if it came in a GG or H!

    I love the look of the Wild at Heart bra from Bravissimo. For those who are interested, I suggest going up a cup size. I found it ran small in the cup and cuts across the top of my breast. Other than that it’s very cute.

    Hi Becca, thanks very much. I’ll bear that in mind! It does look really different to what else is on offer for bigger boobed women so I’m keen to get it.

    I love that Boux Avenue bra! I’ve never looked at them, I was always under the impression they didn’t do larger sizes or small backs? Not sure where I got that from. x

    It is nice, isn’t it?! Boux Avenue are very much La Senza incarnated and they weren’t great for bigger cups. It’s great that they do some, at least catering for GG and H cups to a degree.
