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.

Fall 2015 Full-Bust Lingerie Wishlist

This week has been a whirl of lingerie activity as brands, buyers, and press arrive in New York City for the seasonal trade shows.
