After I revealed a little about the issues that I have with my bust and how I boost it in this post, lots of you lovelies got in touch with me to tell me about your boob-woes and to remind me that I'm not alone. One of the concerns that seemed to crop up a lot was the struggle to find pretty bras for girls with smaller back sizes who needed a large cup size, so I've been in search of finding you all just that.
My search led me to My Curves & Me who sell copious amounts of everyday, sports, bridal and occasion lingerie in so many different cup (A to KK) and back sizes (38 to 46). They particularly specialise in D+ cup size lingerie and pride themselves on not being experts at bra fitting and not compromising on support or comfort for all sizes. Sounds great but lets take a look at the designs. I've picked out four of my favourite Balconette bras, all in smaller back sizes with larger cups.
|Balconette Bras from My Curves & Me|
The Elsa Balconnet Bra (#1) by Superbra is available in back sizes 30 to 38 and cup sizes D to K. It is a vintage inspired bra that comes in black and a vintage nude. The design looks modern yet classic with its feminine Swiss embroidery delicately placed over the cup. This one has two matching items- briefs and high waisted briefs.
The Arquette Balconnet Bra (#2) by Masquerade is available in back sizes 28 to 38 and cup sizes D to H. This is perhaps my favourite out of the lot as it looks super luxurious and I love the use of deep blue on an off white called 'vanilla'. The Arquette bra has an exclusive Eastern style embroidery that has a little Great Gatsby feeling about it. This bra offers a rounded shape for those requiring a larger cup as well as great uplift. There is a thong and a brief that goes with this bra, personally I'd go for the thong as it looks gorgeous! If you want to see what this bra looks like on, then check out this post by my friend Georgina who writes the blog Fuller Figure Fuller Bust where she wears the bra and the thong.
The Orla Balconnet Bra (#3) by Masquerade is available in back sizes 28 to 38 and cup sizes D to H. It is a non padded bra that offers a rounded and uplifted shape with increased support thanks to the mesh lined wings. For all this has a modern, swirl embroidery on it, I think this is the most classic looking design that is complimented by the little trinket drop at the front that just finishes it off. There is a matching thong or brief available depending on your preference.
The final bra that I picked out is the Rosetti Balconnet Bra (#4) by Masquerade and is available in back sizes 28 to 38 and cup sizes D to H. This red number is the sexiest bra I have chosen. It's bold, its glamorous and sexy featuring a lots of satin, even on the straps, in a rich red hue. There's some gorgeous briefs to match this bra too.
I hope you like the bras that I've picked out and that this gives a little inspiration to those with a small to standard back size who require a larger cup size.
