I'm a curvy girl, that was given the gift of rather large breasts and I have a really hard time finding lingerie that has enough support, and at a reasonable price. Any suggestions?

I'm 34DD size 4/6 waist. I give up on corsets. The ones that fit my waist don't fit my boobs and the ones that fit my boobs don't fit my waist. You could try one that has an open bust, but I haven't found any under $60. I really want this one.

** edit: Haven't found any bust-less corsets under $60, as clearly that piece is under $60. I have found bust-less lingerie under $60. Not sure if they would support as well as a bust-less corset would though.

Honestly, I would recommend going for a professional fitting. I'm not talking about the ladies who walk around at Victoria Secret with tape measures around their necks either. Really wonderful bra fitters will be able to find you a bra that really gives you the support that you need. It makes a world of difference, and even if it costs a little more than you were hoping it's a really worthwhile investment as it can make you look better and feel better! Hopefully if you do a little internet research you can find someone in your area or in a nearby city who does this kind of work. I find consumer review sites are great for this. Good luck!

I appreciate the replies! I believe there is a place about 45 miles from me that does fittings. A well fitting bra is definitely something that I want to invest in. There's nothing more frustrating for me than spending money on a bra (or lingerie) and it not fitting right.

If you want corsets, get them from an actual corset-maker. The "dress up" ones sold as lingerie won't do anything for you.

As Elnoa said, the costume corsets aren't real corsets. They're made to look like they are, but the fabrics and boning used are wimpy and sad. Costume corsets are often made of satin, perhaps with a cotton lining, and they use plastic boning, which bends, deforms, and doesn't do a damn thing for your figure. I don't care if you're a size 0 twig, or a very curvy 20, it won't look good.

What you want to look for is a steel-boned corset. They're considerably thicker, with a nice fabric on the outside and a few layers of canvas inside, along with a twill band around the inside of the waist to give it more strength. It's the difference between a stretchy wristband and a wrist brace. This is not to say they are uncomfortable. I have several myself and love them. With all the time and work that goes into them, they are, however, considerably more expensive, so you have to keep that in mind.

A few places you can look for corsets are:

-link
I've heard nothing but good things about them, and they have a wide selection.

-link
Not gonna lie, these guys are pricey. However, they also made my favourite corset, and it's very well-constructed. If you can find a reseller, they're a LOT cheaper. I've been told the overbusts can be a bit too long for those with short waists.

-link
I am in love with this site. Period.

-link
This site is cheaper, and therefore I'm a little skeptical of the quality of the corsets, but it can't hurt to look.

If you can, try them on first. You can also try going to Renaissance Faires, as they have merchants that will let you try things on before purchasing them. Good luck corset-hunting!

I've ordered from Corset Story many times. The corsets are well made (if you get the ones with spiral steel!!! The description will let you know) and their customer service is very friendly if you accidentally order the wrong size. I think they're cheaper because they have them manufactured in bulk and they don't do custom sizing or fabrics. You can also try Timeless Trends and Isabella Corsetry (I've ordered from both).

Just watch out for Pink Label Corsets. They've scammed me and a number of people I know. We all ordered corsets from them (multiple) and never received them and just got the run around as to why we never received them.

The link posted for brute force corsets is definitely worth a look! I have a friend who is a very curvy woman, and her leather corsets from there fit her amazingly, provide lots of support, have lasted years, and she raves about them. They are a little pricey, but for the quality you're getting, it's very much worth it. Their leather corsets are investments, they last decades. No joke, she's had one for over a decade and besides replacing laces it's in near perfect condition.

Another good site is link

I swear by timeless trends. I LOVE corsets. Real steel-boned corsets, not the flimsy lace things you find at victoria secret. And Timeless trends has some pretty awesome corsets that are very supportive, gorgeous construction, and very affordable as far as corsets go. AND! their over-bust corsets are ordered according to your waist AND bust size, they are both taken into account. Sometimes it takes them a month or two to restock a certain corset, but it is very much worth the wait. I have 4 friends who are also corset addicts, and I got them addicted to this site. Their customer service is excellent, if you're wondering if a corset will be restocked and in what time frame they get back to your emails quick. Shipping on corsets is extremely quick. Good luck finding a corset you'll like!

My reviews might be helpful, since I definitely fall into the curvy & boobs categories! I'm a 38 D and range from size 12-14 depending on how far back you read.
