Our little-titty friends say that they'd love to borrow our sizeable racks for a day, but in reality we'd do anything just to get some on-trend lingerie that goes above a D cup! For a long time it seemed as though the perky girls had all the fun. You could only get cute lacy bralettes in sizes 10A to 12B, so you'd have to haul your fuller bust to the Support Bras section and just be happy with whatever you could get your hands on.
Thanks to the internet and an unrelenting cry for more inclusivity in the fashion world, large breasts are finally being catered for in the same stylish, sexy manner afforded to smaller breasts. There are so many more styles on offer for big boobs now than there were just 10 years ago - which means you finally get to choose what you want! It's about damn time.
The Best Style of Bra For A Big Bust
The reality is, you've got more boobs to work with. That's nothing to be concerned about. The average Australian woman is between a C cup and D cup, and if the anecdotal evidence is to be believed that bra size is only set to increase.
When you're shopping for a big bust, there are few things to keep in mind:
- Larger cup sizes will generally benefit from a bra that boasts a full coverage design - it just gives your boobs that extra love and support they crave.
- Look for bras with wider straps. The last thing you need are spaghetti straps digging into your shoulders.
- Don't knock back a front closure bra until you've tried one on either, it may be the life hack you didn't know you needed.
- When it comes to padding, it's entirely up to you. If you want a cleavage that's pure fire, go ahead opt for something padded. If you've happy with your already ample bosom, steer clear of the push-up bras.
If you love to workout, finding the right sports bra is crucial. Jogging with 16DD breasts is the equivalent to running around with a 1.2 litre milk carton strapped to your chest, and who wants to do that unsupported? Look for a sports bra that both compresses and separates your lady lumps. This will stop them from moving up and down OR from side to side during physical activity. Straps should be wide, padded and adjustable. Anything less, and they won't make the cut out on the court.
