Not Now Maybe Later Full Figure Fashion Blog

Well it is time to face the fact that I will either not be getting to this for quite some time to come, or never again.

I thank you all who come here looking for full figure fashion, and especially bra, info.

This has been an experience! 
I will likely try to maintain my Plus Size Swimwear 4 You blog, as best I can.

There is no shortage of excellent plus size fashion blogs we all can enjoy today who have been giving it all I cannot.

Here are a few of my current favs:

& others I tend to share on this blog’s Facebook page, which I have a better chance of keeping up!

Best wishes in all your endeavors!

Why I Love Curvy Kate’s Ellace Balcony Bra

I seldom do personal review posts because I rarely buy things that are not books. That said, when you need large cup size bras, you make room in your budget for them.

I had been wearing Elomi full cup and plunge bras for quite some time, but wanted to try balcony bras. That is why I finally started trying Curvy Kate balcony bras, with great success!

This is my latest and possible favorite…

Curvy Kate’s Ellace Bras

My choice of bras is limited owing to needing cups sizes around JJ. This seems to vary a bit on both brand and cut. In the case of this particular Curvy Kate bra I am so glad that it comes in up to K cup sizes, because the JJ fits in such a way to be not quite perfectly smooth at the seams.
Even so, I find I am wearing this one almost every other day.
I love this bra because of:
  • The lift
  • Projection
  • The Fabric Is So Smooth and Soft! 

This bra offers excellent support yet all of its cups, (and these are 3 part underwire cups), are made of such a soft fabric, I have to wonder why all full figure bras are not.

I also wonder if Curvy Kate will make more in this incredible fabric.

These beautiful bras are available in sizes 28 to 40D to K, 42 and 44D to G, in this latte color below and black with champagne trim too at Her Room.

Price: $66.00

If you are familiar with Curvy Kate Bras:
I found their Bardot Balcony Bras fit me perfect in the JJ cup size. In this style in the JJ is a bit too close, but only if you were looking for a flaw. I doubt anyone is staring at me that closely…
Their Gia balcony bras with K cups was too large…
I hope to try the K cup size in this style, but that will have to wait for my budget to get up to that task…

A Brazilian panty is available in both colors there in sizes S to 2XL. Both colors are on sale now for $24.95 rather than their previous $35.

I am also hoping they make bikini panties for these bras. I have never had a matching bra and panty set, but owing to the incredible soft fabric, would love to with these. I doubt Brazilian panties would work for me though.

Currently Her Room has its Free $20 Gift Certificate with purchases of $100+ deal on! I have enjoyed this in the past. This deal expires at the end of 12/22/16. You would have the use the gift certificate by 1/19/17.

We can get 5% Cash Back shopping eBay through Ebates.

Some New Lingerie Styles by Hips and Curves

It has been so long since I got a chance to post here, longer still since I wrote about Hips and Curves Lingerie. Since that last post two out of the 4 of their styles I had shown here are out of stock! This is how I found out if a style you like by them is out of stock, you can easily arrange for them to email you when it comes back in!

Here are some of their new styles out of the many I happen to like. They also have a myriad of costume styles! Not Harley Quinn yet, but Hot Topic has a dress and T shirt in full figure sizes… I hope Hips and Curves comes out with one, because their costumes look to be very high quality!

New Hips and Curves Lingerie Styles

They have quite a bit of new lingerie and accessories. I would be sure to browse their whole site, but here is a quick look at a few.

 I am showing this merlot lace up front chemise first because its already down to just size 1/2X. It provides soft lace underwire cups with back bra closure and adjustable straps.

 Front Lace Up Chemise 

This All Lace Mini Dress can be worn front or back. The other side not shown has a crew neckline. These are available in plum and hibiscus as well as this black shown, in sizes 1X to 6X!

 All Lace Mini Dress with Criss Cross Back 

Their Pretty in Pink Babydoll provides molded underwire cups with a lace overlay, an ultra-soft sheer mesh skirt and matching G string. These babydolls also have adjustable straps with hook and eye back closure which creates a nicely draping, modest, keyhole!

 Pretty In Pink Babydoll 

The above babydoll and this Bedtime Flirt Chemise below both come in sizes 1X to 3X.
Also like the above babydoll, this style has lace overlay cups, which they do not mention if it provides soft cup or underwire support.
This chemise style also has adjustable straps, the bra back with keyhole effect and comes with matching G string too. The skirt does appear to be opaque and it has a petite ruffle at its hem. They do tell us this style best fits cup sizes D, DD, DDD and E.

 Bedtime Flirt Chemise 

Their trendy Mila Strappy Shelf Bras also come in black in sizes 38 to 46C, D, DD, DDD and F. These supportive bras provide some padding, adjustable straps and tiny bow accents where the cup’s straps meet the shoulder straps.

 Mila Strappy Shelf Bra 

Hips and Curves also has open cup styles, lace slips with garters, waist cinchers with, removable, garters, all stretch lace garter belts, costume styles, corsets, skirts and accessories.

Some New & A Highly Rated Elomi Bra Styles

Bare Necessities has new Elomi bras and panties in now. Three look like new colors in previous bra styles and the two that look entirely new I will show here.

First, I could not resist this highly rated, beautiful plunge style that, while not new…

I cannot help it, I am a fan of Elomi plunge bras, am wearing one now, and have loved them for years!

Elomi’s Anushka Plunge Bras

Right off, 2 of its three reviews indicate the cup size is smaller than they, who wear other Elomi bras, had expected. So if you do purchase this beauty, try one before removing tags! That said, I have had plenty of experience returning products to Bare Necessities with never a problem!

These are just pictures below, but you can find a link to Bare Necessities in this blog's right column

Bare Necessities has these bras in the 34 to 46DD to HH size range! It has underwire four part cups, two hook and eye back with close set straps.

Bare Necessities has a beautiful, sheer back, matching panty in this Anushka line, in sizes M to 3X.

I so hope they come out with this style in a 32 band size as they finally did try with their Carmen plunge bra, which is the one I mentioned wearing. If so, I defiantly want this one too!

Elomi’s New Portia and Imogen Bras

Their Portia plunge bra comes in the 34 to 44DD to JJ size range and has underwire 3 part cups.

Bare Necessities has the Portia Brief to go with this style in sizes M to 3X. The Imogen full cup bras give us underwire 4 part cups and come in sizes 34 to 44E to J at Bare Necessities now.

This style has close set straps.

All of these bras mention the scalloped edges of the straps creating a non-slip strap effect. I never thought of it, but looking so does the Carmen bra I am wearing. I just never had an Elomi bra strap go out of adjustment on me. Now I know why!

These two new bras are too new for reviews and they do not seem to have a matching panty for the Imogen bra yet…

Unique Tie-Halter Bra by Ashley Graham

I had seen this at Addition Elle, (New Ashley Graham Lingerie Spring 2016 Collection at! Shop now.), listed as coming soon, and they have other Ashley Graham lingerie styles, but not Bare Necessities actually has this in full figure bra in stock now!

Ashley Graham’s Halter Bra

 These are just pictures below. You can find a link to Bare Necessities in this blog's right column.

This self-tie halter bra is also an foam-lined underwire with side boning convertible long line bra. If you click on this picture below now you can find this bra style in sizes 36DD and DDD, 38 to 42C to DDD and 44C, D and DD at Bare Necessities now!

I am not holding my breath waiting for a bra like this to come in my size, but I hope someone does at least head in that direction. I love the neckline and lace halter strap style!

Other Eyelash Lace Full Figure Intimates by Ashley Graham

Ashley Graham’s Fatal Attraction Sheer Lace Bra is available in the same sizes as the one above and provides unlined molded cup bust support with adjustable stretch straps and side boning.

While this chemise simply comes in sizes L to 3XL, it does provide foam lined cups with removable pads. It also gives us side boning, adjustable straps and bra back style closure which creates a back keyhole.

Both Bare Necessities and Addition Elle have more beautiful intimates for us by Ashley Graham too!
