I’m wondering where all you busty ladies find bras and lingerie? I’m having a really hard time finding anything to wear under a gown and some sexy items for the honeymoon. I am a 32 DDD/F and find it impossible to find bras let alone lingerie/swimsuits/shapewear. It is very difficult to find a small waist size with large cups. PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks in advance & my FI will thank you I’m sure!!!!

nursepeach9: I’m about the same chest size, and I didn’t wear a bra because my dress had enough structure. In terms of lingerie, though, I know a lot of bees swear by figleaves.com.

nursepeach9: If there aren’t any specialist lingerie shops in your area, I would look into online shops like Bravissimo.

I don´t know if you have “Hunkemöller”, but they also lead small sizes with big cups:

nursepeach9: I got the wonderbra ultimate strapless for under my dress… I wore it all day last week as a practice and spent time jumping up and down etc to try and fake an evening of dancing and it stayed put! It’s amazing and terrifying as I don’t understand how it is able to defy the laws of gravity!

Freya on Amazon. Also Cleo by Panache has really cute stuff. I find lingerie is always more pin-up-y style when you get into larger cup sized, I guess it’s just what works in those styles. The thing I like about those brands specifically is your size is your size in all their styles; I’m a 30G in every. single. bra. from both companies, so it’s easy to order online without a lot of hassle.

nursepeach9: I’m a 36H and everything I buy is “Freya.” You can find it on herroom.com and online/in store at Nordstroms. It’s definitely my favorite brand!

nursepeach9: i am a 36DDD sometimes 36DD dependng on brand, i originally bought a longline bra and HATED IT….it was so uncomfortable. My seamstress talked me into just cups as my dress is corset back and has plenty of structure through the bodice, so thats what i’m doing!
As for bras in real life….i have tried victorias secrets recently and they fit awesome, a lot of the bras now come in DDD and they are actually cute.

nursepeach9: I have an average band size and large cup size….i have a few strapless and i got them all at a custom bra shop….I would start there and see if they have one in your area….it is well worth it….

I know how you feel. I’m a 34DDD/F and at one time was a 36G but have lost weight. It’s tough to find something supportive and sexy at the same time. I own a couple of victoria’s secret convertible bras that fit well but they don’t last very long and within a few wears my boobs start fo spill out. Frederick’s of Hollywood has sexy bras and they work for me. Give them a try.

nursepeach9: I had the same problem! I am a 32H, so it I felt it was near impossible. With the wedding dress I wore, I decided to forego the bra because it made me look bustier than I wanted, and I felt like I was spilling out. However, I went to Nordstroms and found a great variety of items for large chested girls that were extremely flattering to smaller bodies! In Bloom specifically makes lingeie for larger chested girls and I bought a few of those.
I found some really cute bathing suits there as well, but they were too pricy for me. If anyone else has any cheaper bathing suit suggestions, I’d love to hear it as well!! I’ve been going nuts trying to find tops that fit.

nursepeach9: herroom.com for swimsuits! I’m a 34DD and bought some really cute, bra-sized, supportive bikinis there.

I’m a 34GG (UK sizing) and go for Panache bras mostly.
For the wedding, I ended up not wearing a bra because the longline bra that fit came up too high and you could see it. It worked, and I was supported through dancing all night, but I wish I could have ratched them up a bit more.
My favorite bikini is from Panache and I got it from barenecessities.com
