7 Lingerie Brands Going Beyond the 3X Barrier

Chubby Cartwheels

While there have been many positive strides in expanding size ranges within the lingerie industry over the last decade (I remember when new brands rarely went beyond a 36DD!), the truth is there's still a lack of options beyond sizes 1X and 2X.

Sites like Yandy have done a lot to help equalize what's available. (Because the truth is, it doesn't matter if brands make more sizes if no stores want to sell them). However, plus size customers (rightfully) wants more than just "sexy-sexy" options. If that sounds like you, here are 7 brands currently "doing the work" in terms of truly helping to make lingerie accessible for all.

Note: while a lot of brands, especially small and indie labels, offer custom sizing, this blog post only includes brands which show options beyond a 3X on their actual order page. I believe there is inherent value in simply offering these sizes as "regular" options without requiring a customer to contact a brand regarding a custom order.

Unfortunately, I have no control over the imagery companies use to advertise their products. That means even though these brands offer products for the plus size customer, the imagery for them may not show plus sizes or may not show their full size range. That's definitely one area there's room for improvement in, and I hope more brands look for ways to expand their model roster soon.

    Hi you have to remember 3X UK isn’t 3X USA as just look at other clothing size 26 UK is not the same as 26USA

    So need to work sizing conversions yourself/be mindful!

    But Revival items are great very helpful and post any where

    Umm excuse me, these “5X” companies have sizing charts that DO NOT match standard sizes. A 5X waist in one is a 39”-40”… no. Not inclusive at all. Only like one or two are appropriately sized. Please do more research.

    Yo girl looking for sexy 44AA cup bras.

    Looking at sizing charts, Alexandra Annisa and Revival Lingerie’s 5x are a Torrid 1-2. Still plus size, but not exactly fitting the article.
