Budget Shopping: 7 Full Bust Bras Under $50
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
I’ll start with a confession: I’m flat out jealous of the gorgeous array of budget lingerie that gets posted by Cora in her roundups. As a full busted lady, I usually associate bra shopping with my bank account quickly diminishing. If you’re a common size on the full bust market, sale bra shopping can be really tough: the common sizes sell out fast, leaving you to choose between spending way more money than you planned or missing out on the bra you fell in love with.
Luckily, the full bust budget bra market is expanding. When I first started writing here, the budget bra market was totally different. Cleo was producing affordable stuff, but the other great source for budget bras was Poland. Over the past few years, Polish bra prices have gone up (at least depending on your exchange rate) and more UK-based brands have released great budget friendly options. Today I’m showcasing seven of my favorites, although this certainly isn’t an exhaustive list. If you’re thinking about injecting some spring color into your lingerie wardrobe, all of these bras are great places to start.
Satine in Bloom Bra:
Bravissimo re-releases their fantastic Satine bra in solid colors on a regular basis, but occasionally they’ll put out a gorgeous print version. There’s more to love about this bra than the pattern, though — it’s one of the best really deep plunge bras on the market. If you need a bra to go under a seriously plunging neckline, this is one of the two best options on the market. Cups run a bit small, so size up if you’re on the edge of a cup size.
Amour Longline Bra by Pour Moi:
Pour Moi has made waves with their basques in the Amour line, but I can’t be the only one who swears off shapewear and other complex forms of lingerie for the hot summer months. This Amour longline is feminine, basic and still gives you a classic look without all the hassle. Even better, it’s a longline bra under $50!
Gia Balcony Bra by Curvy Kate:
I haven’t tried this bra yet, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about it from other people. It provides great uplift, has interesting details, and is a fantastic spring color. If you need a basic bra in a current fashion color, try this one.
Pixie Balconette Bra by Cleo:
This bra is a bright and fun filled option from Cleo! Cleo has been putting out affordable bras that last forever for years, so it’s worth checking out their adorable spring/summer designs if you’re budget shopping.
Amelie Bra by Lulu Tout:
This isn’t the first time I’ve featured this bra, but it’s because I’m a little obsessed with it. It’s like what would happen if a super classy mermaid and a fashion forward showgirl had a baby. At this price, it’s really hard to go wrong with this bra.
Dotty Spot Bra by Bravissimo:
Fans have been clamoring for a new version of the Dotty Spot for ages — it’s definitely got a serious following among full busted women. If you haven’t quite fallen for the Deco yet, give this bra a try.
Fifi Bra in Apple Green by Tutti Rouge:
How can you go wrong with an apple green mesh bra for spring? This Fifi bra is a basic with baroque sensibilities. If light green isn’t your thing, it’s also available in classic white.
