5 Patterned Bras for Full Busts and Plus Sizes That Aren’t Florals

In the past, many full bust bra companies have dealt with larger chests by covering them with really giant flowers. While florals still remain a popular choice with full bust companies, several are starting to branch out into some stunning patterns that are fun and flirty. If you’re not quite in the right headspace for red lingerie yet, this column will give you some alternatives to try as we head into the holiday season.

The Evelyn Bra by Tutti Rouge:

Tutti Rouge put out some truly stunning colors and patterns this season, but my favorite has to be this Evelyn Bra. The pattern is full of gorgeous parasols and really pops against the unusual grey background. If this bra isn’t enough, it comes with both a thong and a skirted brief option, which gives you the ability to create a stunning set that fits your tastes perfectly.

The Haiku Bra by Avocado:

If you’ve never heard of Avocado, you’re not alone. This creative company has been making beautiful bras out of Poland for years, but have finally added e-commerce for the rest of the world to their website. While their options are unique and varied, this Japanese-meets-60s-hippie-style print is unexpected and gorgeous. If you haven’t seen Avocado yet, you should definitely go check out their new offerings.

The Tiffany Bra by Elomi:

Elomi has been burning it up design-wise as they release hit after hit based on their classic shapes. This one is based on the fabulous Betty framework and has a cool blue pattern that mimics sparkles without all of the bling. This smooth cup design is perfect for those who want the festive look without all of the hassle of gems and glitz.

The CHP Gazeta Bra by Ewa Michalak:

I still have some serious reservations about Ewa Michalak as a company, but when they put out interesting designs they hit them out of the park. This newsprint pattern bra is sexy and fun — and truly something I’ve never seen before. I love the red bow accents and the sheer panels that are part of the matching shorts. If you’re looking for something completely different, this set is perfect.

Vava Bra in Jade Animal Print by Miss Mandalay:

If you do like green lingerie for the holiday, this set is a great choice for something slightly different. Miss Mandalay has made several colorways of this bra, but this bright green version is particularly pretty. The shape this bra is based on has also been very popular and is known for being extra supportive.

Which of these bras is your favorite? Do you love or hate patterned bras?

    I love this post! I really get sick of florals ALL THE TIME. I hope women buy these bras like crazy so manufacturers continue to make more cute designs that don’t involve flowers. Personally, I have my eye on the Elomi and Advocado prints. :D
