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 women who wear a C cup size and up.
Full figure sizes usually range from 32-36DD to sizes 38-42DD. Many brands 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. 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.
