Underwire bras, which have molding sewn into the bra under the cups, are the best choice for full-figured women. Underwire bras provide support and shaping and are especially important for heavier breasts and for women who wear a C cup size and plus size bras. Full figure bras sizes usually range from sizes 32-36DD to sizes 38-42DD. Many manufacturers offer attractive underwire full-figure bras in sizes up to K cups and 56 band size. Full-figure bras are worn by more than 50% of women in the U.S, so manufacturers offer a great selection. When selecting an underwire bra in larger sizes, there will likely be additional means of support, including side boning or seamed cups. Regardless of what style you choose, make sure that the underwire rests against your sternum and doesn't sit on breast tissue. A well-fitting full figure underwire bra will fit comfortably and provide both support and a shapely silhouette.
