Full bust problems – Bringing sexy back?

17 Sep

So I promised you a rant and you’re gonna get one, sorry. If it’s not your thing, just scroll down and read some more positive stuff, right? What I want to talk to you about is how full bust lingerie has ignored one massive target market; us who want sexy, seductive and sultry.

When I entered the full bust world there weren’t that many options for me; basically just Curvy Kate and Eveden Group brands. This was fine to me, hell, I had upgraded to 30E/F and felt amazing in my new CK bras! Also I had been dating my (ex)boyfriend for a while back then and didn’t feel like pleasing him so much anymore. I didn’t need a confidence boost so I went for what I thought looked nice and girly, and most of all, what fitted me.

Well fellas, eating makes you even more hungry so here I am, craving for more. AGAIN. I know, I should take what they give me but ya know, I was never that girl. I’m the girl whose lust for better is never satisfied, so I’m gonna let it all out.



I snatched this one up on The Lingerie Lesbian and the set is by Agent Provocateur, one of the sexiest British lingerie manufacturers in the market. YET, not in my size range (shocker). This is what I would love to see from full bust brands as well; something innovative, dark and sultry. I know there must be tons of limitations when it comes to creating bigger cupsizes (and smaller backs especially) but I’d still like to see it happen, somehow.ImageImage

And yet another British brand that tempts me tremendously – Myla. Great designs, sexy as heck and oozes bedroom fun.

So why did I end up craving something tiny, translucent and silky in my drawers? Yeah you guessed it, I’m single and it puts certain pressure on me. It is kinda sad but on the other hand, extremely exciting. I do not feel the pressure from the society to crave for certain kind of lingerie but I do feel like full bust lingerie is not giving me enough to feel confident and desirable. It’s stupid since men usually don’t give a single fuck (excuse my language) about lingerie, they never have and probably never will. It’s just like a shoe-thing for me; I just get a kick out of a high heel, not a damn sneaker. 

Not that the industry lacks the sex appeal totally, there are some brands that I applause to and want to encourage to go even further with their designs.


Well hello there, Fauve! Fauve is one of Eveden’s sub-labels that carry grown-up pieces with a sexy edge. I LOVE this new Delphine style that should come available this autumn/winter and I’ll definitely be saving my pennies for it. Unless it has that weird wire problem like last time… Not pretty and certainly not comfortable. Anyways, keep up the fantastic design work, Fauve and I’ll get back to you!


Claudette certainly upgraded their game this season and I’m glad they did! I mean, how much closer can you get to sexy than a bra whose cups OPEN at the front. Also the snake print  of this Ouvert set is absolutely breathtaking.


Gossard, you’re doing it well grrrl! This is a brand that I’ve been lusting to try out since they mix traditional sexiness to quirky prints and colours; a winner combo to me! What I would love to try on are these new Edina and Retrolution styles that are totally drool-worthy.



Ok, I swore never to buy from Ewa Michalak after that horrible event with their customer service BUT now I may have to take my words back. Don’t eat me! Just look at those beautiful babydolls and your heart is gonna melt away too. (the pic is taken from their FB page)



And then last but not the least Parfait which has gone through a big size extension lately. I love their Charlotte range and hope dearly that this kind of designs will be seen in their collections even more in the future.

So there it is, I said it and now I’m gonna cross my fingers that something will happen. What do you think, would there be more room for sexier designs in the full bust market? Do you own a truly seductive piece of lingerie above DD cup? Let me know in the comments!

    There’s definitely a market there (here?)! Not only is a drawerful of “sensible bras”—however well-fitting and wonderful—a bit dull, you are right, it doesn’t lack that pizazz the majority of us would like to have…for ourselves our our fella. Or both.

    Also…that gorgeous Delphine in Poppy! *swoon* Oh, how I wish Fauve made 28 bands! That one, though, looks like it’s worth altering. Yum!

      Yap, it’s just sad that Fauve is not the least expensive brand in the world so you might end up costing a lot if you’re paying for the alteration too.. Though I think their 30 bands are pretty firm compared to eg Curvy Kate and Freya!

      • Jen September 19, 2013 at 7:34 pm #

        Yes, that too. Happily, I can do some of the alterations myself.

        Your size info is good to have, though—thanks! Perhaps they’re worth a try then.

    Depending on how much you’re willing to pay, have you considered Atelier Beaujais? They do custom and bespoke peices in full bust/small back sizes (and their standard range incorporates some of the smaller end of D+, too). They’re expensive as hell, but gorgeous and I am definitely saving up for a set myself.

    Also: Marlies Dekkers has some very sexy peices – more on the rebellious side rather than sultry, but lovely all the same. AND they go up to an F cup, for you ladies who fit into the range. 🙂

      AB designs are absolutely divine! It’s just that I’m a student so my funds are indeed limited :/ Someday, maybe.. I’m actually saving up for my exchange term in Liverpool so atm luxury lingerie buying is off-limits. Maybe next spring/summer.

      I have tried Marliers before but sadly they don’t stock sub-32 bands! If they did have my size in stock I’d definitely consider buying one.

    Oooooh! I LOVE that set from Agent Provocateur. I know the brand from their ads and being out of size range for me, but I didn’t knew they make such a pieces! Wow! 🙂 There are no proper words to describe how much I’m in love. Same I think about Kiss Me Deadly designs.
    So, I am waiting for some change too. I am bored of cute pinky, greeny, plain, funny patterns etc for D+ market. Having colorful drawer was just a first step after finally-fitting bras 😉

      Yeah I love KMD too! I SOOO wish they came in my size. It’s not like I don’t adore cute stuff like Tutti Rouge for example but I need a variety of styles in my lingerie wardrobe and the industry is not doing it for me yet :/
