Plus size bras
If you're a plus sized woman who has always had a hard time finding bras that fit, then plus size bras are the way to go.
Since plus sized women come in different shapes and sizes, it would be best to rely on someone who specialises in providing underwear for curvy women.
If you need a plus size bra that will fit snuggly while looking sexy, then the bras from Big Girls Don't Cry (Anymore) online should be your first choice. We sell bras that come in sizes 6 to 36 and cup sizes A to N.
To help you when you are shopping online, here's everything you need to know about finding the best plus size bras.
Why do you need a well-fitting bra?
The straps of a bra should fit snugly so that they can provide proper support. Many women mistakenly wear the wrong bra size, which can lead to discomfort and cause neck, back and shoulder pain. It can also lead to bad back posture as well as rubbing and chafing that can cause skin abrasions. Ill-fitting bras can also lead to unexpected wardrobe malfunctions.
It's essential to know how to choose the right bra band or cup for you and determine what is suited to your body type. The goal here is comfort!
How to choose the perfect plus-size bra?
Nobody likes wearing an ill-fitting bra, but plus size women have it even more difficult. The sizing for bras is not standardized across manufacturers and retailers, which can make shopping unnecessarily frustrating. Wearing the wrong size of bra could have a negative impact on your posture or cause general discomfort throughout the day.
Thankfully, it is now much easier to find plus size bras. These days, various styles will give you both support and comfort while still looking fashionable. Just as plus sized women come in all different shapes, plus size bras are available in many types. Here are tips to help you find suitable bras, no matter the size.
- Make sure you have the right fit
Many retailers have plus sizes for their bras, and some specialize only in plus size lingerie.
To find the best plus size bra for you, you can follow the fitting advice and size guide on the Big Girls Don't Cry (Anymore) website.
As with any bra you buy, it's a good idea to get accurate measurements. Doing this will ensure you get a proper fit and minimize the chance of having problems with chafing or discomfort.
- Use plus size bra extenders
A plus size bra extender is a little contraption that helps to extend your bra band. They have hooks and eyes, just like those on your regular bras, so they can clip on easily. Plus size bra extenders will help you accommodate minor sizing differences.
- Get fitted first

- Develop your own plus size bra shopping strategy
With plus sized bras, sizing changes from style to style, so it's a good idea to know what types of bras you prefer and your basic measurements. If you like an underwire plus size bra, then stick with those styles since they will give you ample support.
- Extend the life of your bra
You may be able to wear your plus size bra for three or more years, even with heavy use. Even though bras have a longer life cycle than other clothing items, it's essential to take care of them properly and protect the investment you've made.
When you clean plus-size bras, it’s vital to handwash plus size lingerie whenever possible. This prolongs the life of these bras. Remember, most plus size materials are delicate and ideally should not be washed in a washing machine or dryer.
- Learn what styles work for you
Plus size bras come in different sizes, shapes, and styles. Most plus size bra manufacturers are familiar with plus size women's needs and will offer different bra designs for you to try. Remember that the right bra is necessary for your comfort, and a well-fitting plus size bra can help you look better.
