Lingerie for large busts

surreptitious surreptitious
I posted a question seeking bustiers for those of us who can't fit in the traditional sizes, but I didn't have any luck. Since I didn't get any suggestions, I thought that I'd broaden my horizons a little bit. I'm generally a medium everywhere but my chest - occasionally I'll choose a large on the bottom if I feel like something will cut in.

Can anyone in a similar situation with more experience than I give me any input?

I love the lace up corsets--they will adjust to those of us larger busted women. I do have pics on most of my lingerie reviews so you can get an idea of the sizing....

Sounds like you're pretty much in the same boat as I am. As far as the lingerie on EF goes, what I usually have to do is buy L or XL and make sure there is no underwire. Also, halter style lingerie seems to work that much better because you can adjust how tight you tie it. Hope that helps a bit.

I have a few lace up corsets, and unless they have strong metal boning, they can't support the weight of my bust and tumble over after an hour or two on. I'll flip through your reviews and hopefully stumble across something with metal boning that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. =)

My problem with buying a large or extra-large is that then it is baggy absolutely everywhere but the bust due to the fact that I'm about 29" underbust and wear an HH-J cup. Which means that in order to get any support, it would have to come in sharply underneath the bust area, which larger sizes are not prone to doing. On top of that, the only way that a flowing top looks any good is if it's something like a babydoll, as the whole point of tight tops is to be tight. Babydolls, of course, tend to come with built in cups. As for halters, can you suggest any that provide actual support? Most of the time I've seen halters, they're a useless bit of string or lace around the neck, and I end up breaking that after about five minutes if I actually try to tie it.

I just want to bump this up because I'd really like some suggestions. I love the new Coquette corsets, but of course the one I like the best went out of stock before I could pick it up. That's what I get for being indecisive.

I have the same issue. My chest is an XL and the rest of me is a M. It is hard to find pieces that will fit right. I have found that those with thick moulded cups generally do not work. Lightly padded or no padding cups have more give so you can order a closer to your size. Also, if the body of the lingerie is stretchy then it is easier to order to your cup size. Usually I order to my breast size because I hate falling out of it before I want to be out of it.

Problem with ordering an XL is that the band is then so big that I can't actually wear it. Do you alter your pieces?

So many things have been discontinued. I'll maybe check in on your wishlists sometime soon and see what you find.
