Guide To Buying Plus Size Bras. The best way to shop for a plus size bra to flatter your body type. Buying a plus size bra can sometimes be pretty hard there aren’t many places that cater to women who have curves and most often the choices are plain and very unpleasing to the eye.

I recently went shopping with one of my sisters.  During our shopping trip she mentioned that she needed to purchase a bra.  I groaned at the prospect and said maybe we should split up while she found her bra.  She simply walked up to a rack flipped through until she found her size and was done.  This was amazing to me because I wear large size bras.  Because my sister is much smaller than I am her purchase was made quickly and without a lot of thought.  I on the other hand need to try on several large size bras and often cannot find any that work.

For those of us that wear Plus Size Bras often have a very small selection to choose from.  This means that often times you make due with what ever is available even if it is not exactly the right size.  Also the large size bras are usually in basic white and made from practical material.  Large size bras are also very expensive and rarely on sale or clearance.  I was explaining all of this to my sister.  She stated that her daughter wears Plus Size Bras and that she is finding that more stores are having a better selection for the larger size woman.

Because buying Plus Size Bras has always been so frustrating to me I only shop for them when I absolutely have to.  When I do find one that fits I usually buy a couple so that I do not have to put myself through the hassle as often.  After my sister told me about what her daughter had discovered about the better selection of large size bras I started to look through the selections in the various stores that we went into.  I found that many of the department stores did have a nice selection of large size bras, especially if they also had a selection of plus size apparel.  The stores that specialize in plus size clothing for women have wonderful selections of large size bras in many different colors and fabrics.  They have the matching panty sets also.  This was a great discovery for me.  I have always thought that because I wear larger size bras they had to be functional not pretty.  Many of the stores will measure you or give you the guidelines to measure yourself so that you get the proper fit.  Some will even start a file for you and write down your measurements once you have been fitted, so if you forget what size you are they can look you up in their system.

I know longer have to feel that I have to set several hours aside when I need to purchase a bra.  With the better selection of large size bras available this is no longer a purchase that I put off.
