full bust

Candy floss, kitten noses, and summer sunsets… some of the best parts of life are pink. I’m sort of notorious for my love of pretty pink things, so when Cora suggested I blog about my favorite pink bras, I was super excited! But since I wear around a 32G, I’m more limited in my selection of cute fashion bras than someone who is a core size. This requires me to be much more selective in the […]

As you may have guessed, lingerie market is an incredibly busy time of year. Between attending Curve (the major lingerie tradeshow), visiting ateliers, and going to all the meetups (such as the one TLA hosted last season for POC and LGBTQIA lingerie professionals), the week is packed solid.

Empreinte is one of those brands that everyone in the lingerie industry knows and loves, but that outsiders (like myself) often have a hard time getting. It was years before I was able to look beyond the ornate European lace and embroidery, and truly understand what made their bras so extraordinary.

While it’s certainly impossible for any one brand to do everything, brands that are taking great strides to diversify what we see in the lingerie world should be applauded, and Panache is exactly one such […]

It’s an unusual experience for people who wear over a D cup to go into a store and be able to try on *any* style they like. But more and more, fashionable brands are expanding into fuller cup sizes, meaning the cute bras at department stores and lingerie boutiques fit more people. Brands that previously made only “core sizes” (typically 32A through 36D or DD) started noticing that boutiques use sizing […]

I’ve written repeatedly about how the full bust and plus size lingerie portions of the lingerie industry have changed wildly since I started writing here. I write a lot about things like sizing expansions and marketing campaigns around here, but the styles of lingerie available have also expanding rapidly from what was available several years ago. Full bust and plus size customers now have access to bondage inspired pieces, to […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links While this is the time of year to preview lingerie trends for next season, even I have to admit that lingerie is truly seasonless attire. Though lingerie professionals and trend forecasters talk about certain prints and trims being “in” or “out,” the fact of the matter is no one cares if a bra is a season or three out of date. So long […]
