For ages I’d just assumed I was doomed to the typical plus size bra: a bland restraint only available in shades of boring (white, black or taupe) with straps wide enough to race Hot Wheels cars on and the obligatory feminine bow at the centre. I would flip through lingerie catalogs and grow absolutely envious. Not of the tiny-framed women and their dainty C cups, but of the beautiful bras adorning their chests. Bras in a kaleidoscope of colours, fittings and shapes. Bras with no straps!–how was that even possible?!
The truth is, curvy women aren’t doomed to one type of ill-fitting bra. There’s actually a wide range of options out there. Once you know how to find the right plus size bra for your outfit, you’ll find that your clothes fit better. Go one step further and make sure you get a bra that’s actually your cup size and suddenly, the world is your oyster.
