Fact: full bust lingerie (roughly defined as anything above a DD cup) has to be made differently from core-sized lingerie. What works for a C cup probably won’t work for an F cup. However sometimes the full bust lingerie market feels almost entirely made up of 4-part cups, basic embellishments, opaque materials, and absolutely no risks taken.

I know I’m really coming down to the wire here, but I promise these last three Holiday Lingerie Shopping Guides are worth waiting for. Of all the guides, the $100-$250 price range is my personal favorite to shop within because this is where you tip over into real luxury. I’m talking made-in-France, 100% silk, limited edition type of luxury – the kind of lingerie you’ll value for years to come, not just a few months after the holiday.
