Plus-size lingerie no longer means huge matronly brassieres that are unsightly and unflattering. There are plenty of different brands that cater for all kinds of shapes and tastes, as well as actually giving you the support you need. In an effort to source the best plus-size lingerie brands and help you understand what to look for if you’ve got a bigger bust, I turned to the pros.

I first spoke to a couple of experts from brands Playful Promises and Chantelle. Both offer bigger cup and dress sizes, and know how to cater for women with larger breasts. They told me exactly what you need to look for when you’re curvier and shopping for lingerie. Then I tapped the expert shopping advice from plus-size models Jada Sezer and Emma Breschi. Ready to find out more? Keep scrolling for their tips and shop our favourite pieces.

Anna Sampson, brand director of Playful Promises, which has collaborated with plus-size model Gabi Fresh, says that you should always go for whatever makes you feel comfortable: “Don’t be afraid to show off your curves,” she tells us. Sampson also said that lingerie doesn’t have to be about covering up or shaping your body, and that even if you do prefer fuller-coverage pieces, there are plenty of sexy options. “Also, remember that all bras are different—there is no ‘correct’ bra size, as bodies are so different, and breasts vary in shape (e.g., being full on top). If a bra style doesn’t work for you, it’s not that your body is wrong.”

As for those who shop for plus-size lingerie, model Jada Sezer knows a lot about finding the right kind. “I always looks for underwired support that’s cute and not too frumpy,” she notes. As for brands, her go-to is Curvy Kate: “It stocks smaller back sizes and larger cups, which is perfect for me,” she explains. She’s also a big fan of Elomi.

Emma Breschi tells us she’s “always been the girl with big boobs.” “It’s something I’ve learnt over time to embrace and love,” she adds. “I look for brands that embrace my natural shape, fit for comfort and are stylish all at the same time. The brands I usually rely on are Beija London and Marks & Spencer.”
