When to Wear a Full Figure Bra

Our wide selection of full figure bras means that we've got a style that is perfect for any occasion. You can wear our full figured bras:

  • With t-shirts (t-shirt or molded cup bras)
  • At the gym (sports bras)
  • Under formal wear (longline bras)
  • For sleeping (sleep and leisure bras)
  • Around the house (leisure bras)
  • After surgery (medical or prosthesis bras)
  • While pregnant or nursing (maternity and nursing bras)
  • To minimize bust size and create a better fit in your clothes (minimizer bras)
  • On date night (pick a lacy or sexy design)
  • With your work clothes (go with a comfortable, all-day-support style)

There's no time when it's not appropriate to wear a full figure bra - you just need to find the right style to match your needs.
