idkshrug asked: hey i just wanna say i respect the fact that it's hard to find bras when you have small breasts, but it's also hard when yours are large. Mine aren't even that big, a 32DD, but it's such an obscure size i have a hell of a time trying to find it. i think the underwear industry just wants to cater to "ideal" sizes that we are "supposed to: have, and if we don't well sucks to be us. just my 2 cents :)
Thank you for respecting my opinion, and not just saying ‘if your breasts are that small you don’t need a bra’ like some. I feel your pain though if you’re having difficulty - especially if you want something sexy or cute!
I’m not saying that it’s not difficult to find bras if you’re a large cup size, I just personally think that it’s becoming easier. I do agree that ‘ideal’ middle sizes like 34C are the easiest to find as almost all brands will stock and design for that size.
My point is that, for example, on a standard lingerie website like Figleaves, in the DD+ section there are 789 styles available. There isn’t a AA-C cup section I can check, but if I search by size there are 306 results for a 30G, 62 results for a 30A and 16 results for a 30AA. It just shows there is more available to people with larger cup sizes, in the UK at least.
Plus, there are companies like Freya that designs beautiful lingerie specifically for people up to a K cup and is available in most UK department stores like Debenhams. The only brand I can think of off the top of my head that designs bras that suit small cup sizes, and stock bras in those sizes, is Mimi Holliday which is a designer brand so charges double what you would pay in Freya.
Sorry that this is so long and ranty. Thank you for following me btw :)
Anonymous asked: ann summers, m&s, bhs, la senza, george/asda - all have A cups in different styles (unpopular opinion blog)
I understand this, I shop in these places. My pain is, as a lingerie enthusiast, I’m always looking for something sexy and exceptional and a lot of the time that kind of thing just isn’t available in my size. And the ‘sexy’ underwear in Ann Summers really isn’t to my taste as I don’t want to wear ‘triple padded’ bras - I think they just look trashy.
Also, a small unecessary nitpick, but George usually sizes their nicest bras at 34A and above as this has happened to me a few times and La Senza which was admittedly a goldmine, is currently in administration so I can’t buy from there any more.
Thank you so much for your suggestions, but the fact is I’m really fussy about what I buy - but hey, is that really a bad thing?
