Plus size bras are designed for:
- Women who shop in full figured or plus size clothing departments and stores
- Women who wear bra bands anywhere from 38 to 42 and larger, depending on the brand and style
There's really no-one who can't wear a plus size bra, but this type of bra tends to be designated by its size range - so women who wear smaller sizes generally wouldn't wear this type of bra.
However, some women who normally shop in plus sizes tend to have a different body type, and may find the proportions of a plus size bra aren't ideal. If you tend to have a more standard body type on top, but shop for plus sizes because of hips, bootie or thighs - you may find that a standard bra is better for your proportions on top.
