Out of the Ordinary: 5 Full Bust Bras that Are Breaking the Mold
Like it or not, there's lots of repetition when it comes to the full bust market and bras. While full busted women have more choices than ever, sometimes it's easy to feel like those choices all involve lots of floral patterns, polka dots and bows, or tons of coverage. The bras I'm showcasing today are all doing something different to push the boundaries of what full bust bras can look and feel like.
Cute Bras for Teenagers - The Lottie Set by Tutti Rouge:
Our feelings about lingerie and how our bodies fit into it form very early --- most full bust women can vividly recall the first time they were told they were too big for a "normal" bra or how they hid out in locker rooms to hide their giant bras from the rest of their camisole-wearing classmates. Many supportive full bust bra lines have tons of coverage or more mature patterns, so I'm glad to see brands like Tutti Rouge making sets that developing lingerie fans can wear. This bra would be a great introduction to the world of supportive lingerie while still showing developing women that they too can feel fashionable and cute. I only wish this option had been around when I was in high school!
Sheerness - The Mesh Dessous by Claudette:
Claudette has been a big player in the lingerie market for a few years now, so it's hard to remember what a splash these sheer mesh bras made in the full bust world. Several years later, Claudette has gone from strength to strength but no one else has quite captured the sexy yet supportive sheerness that these bras offer. I know many women who swear by these bras and collect them in multiple colors!
Sparkles and Gems - The Genesis Set by Louise Ferdinand Lingerie:
There are lots of gorgeous sparkly tulle bras being put out by independent designers, but none in such a wide size range Louise Ferdinand is making them in. This Genesis Set is perfect for the upcoming holidays or a special occasion. Her bras are handmade up to a UK KK cup, which also gives these bras one of the best ranges on the market.
Androgynous Lingerie - The Mai Set by All Undone:
Full bust bras have always been big on super feminine patterns with lots of bows, but what if you want something less girly? Until now, your options have been pretty slim. Thankfully, All Undone has released a line of luxury full bust bras that pushes the market in a whole new direction. While brands like VPL have been making this type of lingerie for years, it's a fresh breath of air in a market that is ruled by traditionally feminine details.
Pure Sex Appeal - The Addicted Set by Pour Moi:
This set is unabashedly sexy and features two things normally never seen on the full bust market: strappy details and a super sexy half cup design. Pour Moi has been making beautiful lingerie for years, but always seems to be overlooked by bloggers and lingerie fans. Hopefully this set will finally get their whole line the attention that it deserves --- it's a truly new look in this size range.
