There are certainly a wide variety of bras available such as under-wire, no-wire, with padding and without padding. Fuller figured women tend to look for a full coverage bra without an under-wire or any necessary padding. Women with larger breasts can attempt to use bras with an under-wire, but they often cut into the skin under the arms. A more likely choice would be a molded bra. The molded bra might look as though it would add even greater volume to full figured breasts, but it actually fits quite nicely without additional volume and proper support.
All women have issues with finding bras that fit correctly. However, the correct size is an absolute essential for fuller figured women that can otherwise hurt certain areas surrounding the breasts. Fuller figured women should find a bra that fits correctly to lift the breasts that create more of an hourglass shape that will enhance the remaining curves of the body. The best way to find the best fitting bra for a fuller figure is to have it done by a specialist with experience in bra sizing. A professional will take measurements including the rib area below a bra that is currently being worn. This is known as a band measurement or under-bust taken with a measuring tape just below the bottom of the bra. The next measurement is the cup size, measured by wrapping a tape measure around the breasts while a bra is worn. The tape should be firm to the bra and level at the fullest point of the breast area. Both the band measurement and cup size can be done by yourself or a professional.
Plus size women no longer have to settle for the basics once the correct bra size is identified. Major lingerie manufacturers recognize that fuller figured women are looking for a variety of sexy and attractive bras that any sized women would like. Retailers are catching on quickly that the bra market for fuller sized women is becoming much more demanding. Women are expecting to see a fair share of full-figured bras that were once missing or minimal at best in well-known department stores. Full figured women that are able to find perfect plus size bras are gaining confidence while becoming more outspoken to find exactly what they have in mind in terms of color and style.
There are an even greater amount of online retailers for fuller figured women looking for the perfect bra with an even better selection of styles, designs, and colors than some department stores. More than anything, fuller figured women should take the time necessary to find what feels comfortable and look in a mirror to gain confidence with their well-fitting selection of bras. There is a proper fitting bra for every occasion that will only enhance the curves of any curvy, confident woman.
