Nutcracker Sweets Act II: 5 Holiday Picks for Fuller Busts

Welcome, my sisters, to a list of the things that are currently taunting me.  Me and my credit card.

Note: for purposes of this post, “full-bust” refers to bras in sizes 28-38, from a D-cup to at least a UK G-cup.  Many of the bras below also come in additional sizes.

I love this I love this I love this I want this.

"Boudoir Beau" Bra by Bravissimo (exclusive) in Emerald (other colors available).  Sizes 28-38 DD-K. £30.00.  Shorts (£17.00), Thong (£15.00) available in sizes XS-2XL.

Remember that sassy piece of lacy loveliness Julia Lambert reviewed?  Try it in Scarlet.

I LOVE the pairing of electric blue and black.  Red would have been more expected here, and the blue is surprising and lovely.

Mimi Holliday’s new arrivals include this lovely bra for fuller busts, which reminds me of the snow scene in the Nutcracker:

In addition to the lovely bra, there are also a plunge bra, shoulder bra, comfort bra, high-waist knicker, classic knicker, classic lace knicker, smooth knicker, lace boy short, lace bow-back thong, suspender, teddy, cami, French knickers, body, and slip.  Just, you know, if you’re starved for choices.

    Oh my goodness … I’m in love with Louise Ferdinand! Ali is on my wish “in my dreams” list, along with Audrey and Angelina. The beauty is in the materials (sheer mesh, silk … mmmmm, silk) and in the details (scalloping, bias edging, seamed cups).

    And the designer, Sandra Palmer, has a philosophy I think a lot of us would embrace: wanting to incorporate her mother’s style sense, her father’s tailoring and design skills, “1950’s glamour and the images of glamorous women of that period including Betty Page, Lana Turner and Sophia Loren,” and “the modern shapes associated with the 21st century.”

    Thanks for the head’s-up — now, off to dream …
