For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been writing about lingerie for 8 years. One of the primary reasons I started was to share my experience looking for and finding full bust bras that met my needs for fit as well as fashion. If you’ve been following along the past few years, you know as well as I do that the market has greatly expanded and there are a number of brands that fit that bill for a variety of styles. However, I believe the industry is just scratching the surface when it comes to full bust options for other lingerie pieces – chemises, babydolls, bustiers, and more.
I know this from personal experience. I’ve long scoured my favorite shops to find pretty (or sexy) nightwear that offers the support I need. I have more than one of two pieces in my personal collection that I love, but rarely wear because they require me to also wear a bra, ruining the aesthetic. So where are the supportive, full bust lingerie options for this holiday season and beyond?! Holly provided a stylish and comprehensive round up of sexy and supportive full bust babydolls a few days ago. (I’m eyeing more than one of them!) The styles below capture my favorites of basques, bodysuits, and bustiers for the full cup crowd.
What are your favorite styles? Have you found any others that you love? Let us know your favorite brands and stores!
The Susana basque by Fantasie is a true classic. A simple silhouette and elegant Leavers lace make for a perfect combination. The gold of the material reminds me of Champagne and celebrating the season, so this is perfect for now, but also the whole year through.
I’m loving this beautiful and regal combination of purple and gold of this basque by Just Peachy by Figleaves. Accessible and affordable, this flattering and feminine piece contrasts floral lace, scalloped edges, and sweet little bows with simple Swiss dots and a cheeky keyhole in the back. Sassy and classy!
Quite possibly one of my favorite looks of all is this Ooh La La Underwired Body from Freya. Ooh La La is right! This bodysuit (in a color called Flame!) ensures that full bust ladies don’t have to miss out on the allure of this sexy silhouette! The piece uses sheer accents and an eye-catching embroidery to create a true stunner.
Pour Moi stays on trend with this basque featuring the ever popular cut out styling! I love the combination of strategically placed lace and sheer mesh emphasizing the waistline. And, it is available up to a size I!
Bravissimo nails it with this basque in a rich purple hue. This simply elegant piece uses a contrasting embroidery of ribbons and bows for an ultra-feminine look. The gently scalloped edges make it extra pretty!
This bodysuit from Conturelle is a sophisticated shaping piece. The cup is accented by a sheer wave pattern. Available through a size G, this is a great, classic, go-to.
There are lots of opinions around this newly released collection by Britney Spears. I’ve liked what I’ve seen so far and am glad she includes fuller cups, especially for a piece like this basque. Even though it is solid black, it creates interest using more structured, geometric boning to create shape.
Are there other things you hope to see in the full bust lingerie market that isn’t captured in these trends? Share your thoughts.
