60 Fuller Bust Bras under $50

It’s hard to avoid talking about price when you’re looking at DD+ bras. It can feel unfair, if you’ve always worn A-DD cup sizes, that you have to pay more to get the quality, fit, and comfort you like in DD+ sizes. It’s important to remember, though, that by and large these prices aren’t arbitrary. As Cora Harrington, The Lingerie Addict, has noted on her blog and Twitter, full-bust brands aren’t trying to pull a fast one on their target customers; rather, full bust bras cost more because of the technical elements (specialty fabrics, extra components, etc.), more complex manufacturing process (more sizes to grade, more advanced construction details, longer sewing times, etc.), and straight-up engineering involved in making them. Generally, if you’re in the US, you can expect to pay $60-80 for one mid-market full bust bra in a fashion color with a wide size range.

That doesn’t mean, however, that that’s your only option! Sales do happen, generally on a few remaining sizes of a discontinued fashion color. However, retailers and brands can really only continue to sell and produce bras that people buy at full-price, so today I’m taking a look at DD+ bras that are priced under $50 all the time, before any discounts or sales.

Generally, what you’ll find in this category is a somewhat more limited size range (usually UK D-G or D-H cups), basic colors like black and beige, and simpler designs with fewer of the elements that can drive prices up, like strapping, lace, embroideries, technical fabrics, or other embellishments. You’ll likely notice a difference in fit, support, and comfort between a $35 bra and a $65 one. HOWEVER, the fuller bust market is changing and growing fast, and in particular I always recommend those on a budget check out the in-house brands from big retailers like ASOS, Debenhams (in the UK), or Figleaves. These stores are able to produce more colorful, sexy, trendy designs at a lower price point, so if you can’t bear another beige bra, it’s a good idea to check a retailer’s in-house label for some fun and color.

Without further ado, I present my magnum opus: a whopping 60 different fuller bust lingerie styles all priced under $50. There’s a wide selection of full-bust offerings, ranging from bralettes and bodysuits to strapless or strappy designs and even a few maternity options. Almost all pieces go up to at least a UK G-cup (US I-cup), and some options to up to a UK J-cup or higher. If you’re fit/comfort focused, I’d recommend looking at Curvy Couture, Pour Moi, Elomi, Fantasie, Goddess, and Parfait. If you’re fashion/trend-focused, take a look at Figleaves, ASOS, Playful Promises, and Rougette. Happy shopping!
