It has to be said, I’m not very good at shopping. Being uncomfortable about my size means that shopping for clothes is rarely a pleasure and I often come away from shops unhappy with having tried on a bunch of stuff that doesn’t fit properly or look right on me. One thing that I’ve ALWAYS made sure I spend money on, though, is underwear. Having a massive bust means that buying proper bras is an absolute necessity, especially if I want to avoid back problems and shoulder pain. My bust is also an area which isn’t really affected by my weight; even at my biggest and smallest, my cup size has barely changed, although my band size has recently got smaller with my weight loss.
Just recently, I’ve been doing some online browsing to find new undies, and I’ve noticed that there are some really fun, sexy styles out there at the moment. For years, it seemed as though anyone over a certain size was confined to really frumpy bra styles, but things have come along leaps and bounds and suddenly everything is far more fun! Here are a few of my favourites:
I absolutely love the look of harness bras, and although they might not be hugely practical, they definitely look good. Lots of my friends have separate harnesses that they attach to any bra, but I love the fact that this bra has one attached already. The matching knickers are really pretty too!
Okay, so technically this one isn’t a bra, it’s a bikini, but just look how pretty it is! I adore the colour, I adore the shape of the cup and I adore the pretty straps. It’s absolutely gorgeous and as soon as I;m confident enough to wear a bikini again, I’ll be choosing something just like this.
This bra does a stunning job of proving that white underwear doesn’t have to be boring! The delicate flowers across the cups are embroidered and the combination of the rose-gold accents and the small keyhole detail on the front make this style look smoking hot!
I’m no prude, but when you have a big chest you have no choice but to show your cleavage even a bit, unless everything you wear has a roll-neck! I absolutely love the lace detailing across the tops of the cups on this style, which you could wear under almost anything and you’d get an extra bit of modesty in the bargain – plus, a little bit of lace peeking out always looks pretty!
Another style which would keep the girls well and truly in-check is this high-neck style from Pretty Secrets. It’s probably both the sturdiest AND the prettiest bra I’ve seen in a long time, a combination which rarely ever goes together. I really, really love this bra!
