ASOS DESIGN Fuller Bust Harper Strappy Velvet Trim and Lace Underwire Bra, $35, 30-38 DD-HH (UK)

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. […] Read more…

5 Full-Bust Lingerie Brands to Watch in 2019

While I’ve spent most of January and February in New York hunkered down under blankets, fighting off a cold inside and the bitter cold outside, I’ve had the chance to do a bit of a closet purge. I’ve accumulated a lot (A LOT) of lingerie over the last few years, and both my size and […] Read more…

2019 Trend Alert: 10 Crop-Top Styles for Fuller Busts

Bralettes and athleisure are still massive trends in both lingerie and general fashion, but these soft, usually unstructured pieces can leave full-bust customers wanting more: more structure, more shaping, more lift, and more support.

Lingerie Looks for Holiday Parties: Underwear and Outerwear

I have had SO much fun planning this post, y’all!

Women of Prophecy: The Lady of Shalott

The Pre-Raphaelites loved the Lady of Shalott. Oh they loooooved her, couldn’t get enough of her, painted her multiple times, continually re-conceiving and reworking her story and image. Even Tennyson published two separate versions of his great poem, one in 1833 and one in 1842. The Lady of Shalott is loosely based in Arthurian legend […] Read more…

A Trojan priestess lies sleeping in a temple dedicated to Apollo. Apollo sees her lying there, desires her, and assaults her. She awakens and cries out, pushing him off of her.
