I don't know about you, but when I'm wearing the right big bust bra I feel like I can leap small buildings in a single bound and rid the world of evil & corruption.
Okay, I might be exaggerating a little bit. I spend most of my days cleaning the house and trying to figure out what's for dinner. One time I killed a black widow spider. That's about as exciting as my life gets.
...but wearing a good bra can make my outfit look amazing, even if it's just jeans and a t-shirt.
The NFL legend Deion Sanders said,
"If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good. If you play good, they pay good."
And that's kind of like being a super hero right?
I know there are women out there that hate underwire bras. In their opinion they are uncomfortable, but I believe that's because they're wearing the wrong size, or perhaps the wrong brand. I love underwire bras, but I've worn my fair share of stinkers.
Confession Time: I had one bra (years ago) where the wire had worn a hole in the bra fabric and the wire would wiggle it's way out into the middle of my cleavage. I would have to push the wire back into place several times a day. If I forgot, then about lunch-time it would look like my boobs were pitching a tent. Awkward.
Wearing the right size!! I don't have to tell you how important this is. I actually wrote a whole page about how to find your bra size so I'm not going to repeat myself here. Find your bra size! If you happen to live in Virginia you can visit the Bra Fairy. She's great at helping you find your bra size. She even guessed my bra size just by looking at my picture! She's good. If you don't live in Virginia, I'm sure there are bra fitters near where you live.
The picture below is from thebrafairy.com. See what I'm talking about!?
FIND THE RIGHT BRA! She looks like she's lost 15 pounds and got a breast lift! (There are more before and after photos on her site.)
Price - cringeworthy @ $117
Okay, I'm going to be upfront right from the start and tell you that the price tag for this bra is STEEP! I debated whether or not to recommend it because quite frankly I can't afford it right now, but hey a girl can dream right!?
This bra has stretch lace along the top of the cups, which allows for a perfect fit for each breast -- even if one breast is larger than the other! (It's pretty common.)
This bra is perfect for women with full breasts and extra
breast tissue under the armpit.(Which is also pretty common ;)
The reviews for this bra were glowing! Seriously glowing. But then again, for a $100.00 bra they better be. I might have bra envy.
Price - Reasonable @ $55
Look at the support, lift, and separation. This is about as close to a perfect big bust bra as you can get. And apparently there are about 600 ladies that agree with me. This bra has been reviewed on herroom.com over 630 times. And 95% of them are positive. (Especially among our big busted sisters)
Here's one of the many reviews for this bra.
"I just purchased this bra and I HAD to come leave a review! I absolutely LOVE IT! This is probably this best bra I have ever purchased. Bad boob genetics coupled with pregnancy and nursing my son for a year had left my girls in bad shape, but in this bra they are perky and back where they are supposed to be. I absolutely love it and will probably be buying one in every color....it is that awesome ~ sized 38DD"
Price - Reasonable @ $60
The other bras on this page are 3 piece cup bras, which offers a lot of support and shaping, but can also leave you with visible seams when wearing thin material like t-shirts.
This bra is seamless and therefor perfect for wearing under t-shirts. This bra is also very lightly padded. Don't worry it doesn't add any bulk to our bust. The thin, foam padding is perfect for hiding those embarrassing 'bumps" when you're cold. ;)
This bra has won numerous awards and was recently inducted into the Herroom Hall of Fame.
You can read the hundreds of reviews here
One woman (size 32F) said, "Love this bra. I had issues with spillage so I went up a cup size and now it fits perfect. It lifts right where I need and smoothes everything out so it could be worn with any type shirt. I have large breasts with a small back and it is hard for me to find a bra that fits right. I was very happy to find this bra."
Well There you have it, 3 big bust bras that will make you invincible (I'm exaggerating. Don't go out and try to stop a truck with your breasts.... Actually, you probably COULD stop a truck with your breasts. See, the right bra really does give you super powers. ;)
Go have some fun.
Lingerie manufacturer Frederick's of Hollywood reports that in 1996, the average size of bras they sold was 34B.
Currently, the average is a 36C.
And I'd bet my best bra that nowadays the average bra size is closer to a D cup
Similar data about the increase in average breast size comes from England, where busts grew from 36B to 36C in a 3 year period.
According to The Penguin Atlas of Human Sexual Behavior, breasts across Asia grew from 34A to 34C between 1980 and 2000.
