What is a fuller bust bra size?

There is no specific cup size that is considered to be a "fuller" cup size. Cup sizes are based on the difference between the bust measurement and the band measurement, so a bra with a larger cup size will have more volume and coverage than a bra with a smaller cup size.

However, the term "fuller cup" is often used to refer to bras that are designed for women with larger breasts, or who are looking for more coverage and support. These bras may have cups that are more generously sized or shaped, and may also have additional features like wider straps or a more supportive band to provide additional support.

Traditionally, a "fuller" cup size or "plus size" bra is regarded as a DD+ cup size. However, as thre majority of adult women measure above a DD cup (the most common true size is a G), this is now an outdated statement.

What is the best bra style for fuller cup?

There are a few bra styles that are generally considered to be good options for women with fuller cups:

Full coverage bras: These bras offer full coverage of the breasts, with cups that come up higher on the chest and cover more of the breast tissue. This can be especially helpful for women with larger breasts, as it can provide more support and help prevent spillage.

Balconette bras: These bras have cups that are cut in a sloping, horizontal line across the top of the breast. They often have underwires and vertical seams, which can help lift and shape the breasts.

Plunge bras: These bras have a deep V-shaped neckline, which makes them a good option for low-cut tops. They often have underwires and padded cups, which can help lift and shape the breasts.

Sports bras: If you are looking for a bra that offers maximum support and coverage, a sports bra may be a good option. Sports bras are designed to provide extra support during physical activity, and many styles are available in larger cup sizes.

It's important to try on different styles and sizes to find the fuller cup bra that fits and feels the best for you. It's also a good idea to get fitted by a professional bra fitter or use our bra size calculator to ensure that you are wearing the correct size.
