Save on Full Figure & Large Cup Bras at Bare Necessities’ 5 day Sale!

While Figleaves’ still has the best price on many plus size and large cup bras, their sizes available are shrinking. You will find excellent prices on many of these same bras, still available in a wider range of sizes at Bare Necessities 5 day sale. You can even get better than Figleaves’ prices on some full figure bras.
Bare Necessities
For instance, while Fig leaves does have Elomi’s smoothing foam underwire bra in many plus sizes for just $29, you can get in at Bare Necessities’’ 5 day sale for $43.50 in large cup and plus sizes in all colors. In addition, you can get these large cup bras in cherry for just $31.99. If you use the Bare Necessities 10% off full figure bras link to your right here this bra would cost $28.79, and it would still qualify for Bare Necessities’ free shipping! The free shipping is good until 1/8/09, but the sale prices on their bras and other intimates are only until 12/15/08 near midnight.

The above example of savings on this bra may be splitting hairs, till you get to the free shipping, and currently Bare Necessities has both plus size and large cup sizes, Figleaves has this bra in mostly plus sizes at the moment.

Enjoy up to 90% off Large Cup & Plus Size Bras, Shapewear, Panties & more at Figleaves!

Figleaves is having their holiday sale to make room for new intimates. So we can enjoy up to 90% off their wide selection of large cup and full figure bras, plus size shapwear and panties! For instance, you can find Bali’s easy on firm body briefer for just $13.80. It’s still available in some plus size bra sizes.

This highly rated Va Bien seamless ultra lift bustier is now just $22.50 in sizes up to 42DD!


While most of Figleaves large cup bras are just up to 50% off, they have popular plus size bras for less. Like these Goddess smooth simplicity full figure bras are just $19 at this sale in sizes 36DDD to 52DDD. This plus size bra is also available in cup sizes up to H in 36, 40, 42 & 44, and up to G cup sizes in 42, 44, 46 and 48 band sizes!


The best way to shop these clearance sales is quickly, before your size goes out of stock. Sadly, this is what usually happens to me. Avoid this if you can and enjoy the savings!

If you are on the lighter side of plus sized, I run across this as I was leaving Figleaves:

Now just $30 of its usual $60, but only available in the US equviliant of size 12 in black. Years ago when I first started shopping Figleaves I ordered some Magic Knicker’s shaper. But it went out of stock, so I never got a chance to try them. Figleaves did give me a nice discount on my next order because they could not deliver. An unexpected niceness and another reason to shop Figleaves! They are very good abour returns too, no trouble at all!

New Large Cup Bras colors and sales!

AquaMarine, thanks for the tip about going up a cup size when going from full cup to balcony styles. This might solve a fit problem I have in some styles! And Bare Necessities Does have Panache Harmony balcony large cup bras on sale for just $37 in its cornflower color! Bare Necessities also has Fantaise’s Olivia large cup bras in this new color shown here. They have it in both large cup bra sizes up to 38J and 40 GG, as well as in full figure bra sizes up to 40D to G!

If you click on its picture nothing much will happen. I could not get that sort of picture link for this bra, so it must be pretty new in this color. Sadly these beautiful bras are not on sale in either, (It comes in Cappuccino too), color yet. All the more reason to use Bare Necessities’ 10% off Full Figure Bras banner in the right column here when shopping for this bra.

Possibly owing to its price, I only 2 each reviews of this bra at Her Room (Coupons and Special Offers at, and, in half of which Up Lift features strongly, one from a women who wears a J cup bra. I hope it goes on sale in the near future so I can try it!

Full Figure and Large Cup Bra sales Return!

This full figure and large cup by Panache is their full coverage Harmony Bra. It is now on sale at Figleaves in sizes up to 40K for just $38.50. Be careful though, the Harmony Balcony Large Cup Bras are not on sale there yet!

Bigger Bras has Le Mystere’s Dream Tisha Full Figure Bras on sale for as low as $47.60 in sizes up to 44G. Note the discount code in their banner on this page’s right column before you shop there. That discount code is good for any size order!

I did post here earlier this year that this Dream Tisha bra was having a pointy tip problem. But looking today at the reviews for it at Her Room, (Coupons and Special Offers at, for the 2nd half of this year there is no mention of that. Only that Le Mystere’s Full Fit Dream Tisha Bra won the over all full figure bra winner for a 3rd year in a row and a 2nd year as the favorite full figure t-shirt bra winner. So I guess the pointy tip problem was handled!

If you like the Dream Tisha bra and only need sizes up to 38DD Bare Necessutues has them on sale in average size range for as little as $19.99 in mocha color and $50 in it’s animal print. But if you need full figure sizes they have the lace version for just $40 in sizes up to 44H!

Just be sure to use the discount banner in the right column to get the full discount when shopping at Bare Necessities. Although I believe this might not work when ordering a 34 or smaller bra band size. But I could be wrong. It just seemed like it did not discount when I did that this spring. This happened because Fantasie bras really are sized larger, at least in the band size.

Check out Nekoneko’s Plus Size Mix and Match

Nekoneko replied to my previous post by nicely turning me on to her Plus Size Mix and Match and the Polyvore tool she uses to create it! If you want ideas about dressing with empire waist, kimono and plus size dresses, as well as lots of other style ideas her Plus Size Mix and Match is well worth the viewing!

Be sure to check out Nekoneko’s other fine Squidoo Lenses, currently 53 at the moment. But be warned! Allot yourself lots of time when doing this! Yesterday my whole afternoon was happily derailed by following several tangents of interest that all started with her Funny Sarcastic and Diet Quotes Squidoo lenses.

Thank you Nekoneko!

I’ll be playing around with the Polyvore tool myself. I hope to show equally handy results here in the near future. But with me in this year, who know…

If you are in the Vancouver area, check out Bodacious’ Plus Size Fashions!

If you are not, check out the About Us page of their web site! I especially like the part about that skirt is too small for me, it’s not the other way around! Love their attitude! Their fashions are unique and beautiful too. Plus the Bodacious blog is a good read and a good place check out plus size fashions!

Hopefully their styles will be available for us online shoppers some day…..They have some beautiful wrap dresses as well as other styles. And it appears we can call or email an order to them. I have not tried that just yet. They aim for soft, silky, body skimming clothing that work with what you were born with!

They may be a little too far away from my price range for a while but till then:
Silhouettes’’ print silk dress below has just come within my current range! These plus size dresses are now on sale, in it’s shown color, for just $30! And it is still available in all sizes 12 to 26!

Thank you Mrs. Carrington for your kind comment

Having a little girl to set a good example for puts dressing a fuller figure in a perspective that far exceeds the importance of style and fashion. Even though my 8 year old has yet to be very concerned about her own appearance, she does look at me. She, a skinny to slender little girl, asked me if she looked fat. This really shook me up. She did not care what she was wearing, but was already concerned about her weight? Yikes!

So I have felt the need to make sure she knows there is nothing wrong with being slim or large. She actually asked me this year if she will be as large as I am when she grows up. I assured her that no matter what size she turns out to be, she’ll be fine.

Now that she has been in school a few years it has become apparent to me that how we look at when we take our children to school and back matters. Once she even asked me to please dress up for her school concert that year. Of course all my attention was on how she looked. So it seems to matter to our children how we look.

Fortunately there are many flattering styles for us fuller figure women now. You’ll find a nice selection of stores that carry mostly classic, some trendy clothing at my Plus Size Women’s Clothing website. I have been looking at most of the apparel in these stores for years, with the exception of Old Navy and Avenue, since 2003. If you take that link now you’ll find that Old Navy has provided us full figure women with a nice fashion show. Though I personally have not tried them yet, you can see their prices are budget friendly!

I especially like the styles at Silhouettes and lots of my wardrobe comes from them and some of my casual attire from Avenue. If you become a Silhouettes Buyers Club member you save 10% off all purchases, even their sale and Outlet goods! They have classics and new trends too. They can be a bit pricey, but you can find great price breaks in their Outlet store. This women’s blazer is now $89. It will never go out of style, and it was down to $19 in their Outlet store in late spring.
Notched-Collar Jacket

They have standard items that go into the Outlet store each year and reappear in the store when they are in season. That is one way to shop for a stylish wardrobe without breaking the budget!

Currently their very classic a-line skirt is now just $9.00 and still available in all but size 16W in Navy. If you join the buyer’s club it’s less 10%!!
A-Line Skirt

I wear mine just as above, but with the twin set buttoned at the top mostly. And this skirt is where I learned that size does matter a quite a lot when dressing to please the eye. I usually put comfort first. And while I know I have been writing for years about how generously sizes Silhouettes fashions are, I just did not listen to me. I ordered this skirt in a size 18W. When I got it, it felt great, looked a little frumpish but nice and neat. Then I noticed I could turn the whole thing around, with easy, at my waist to wipe some pine tree sap that I sat in off.

I ordered the khaki one in a size 16W. That one felt just as comfy and looks as sleek as the above pictured outfit! I had not lost weight either.

One other thing I have noticed about Silhouettes clothing is their woven jackets and vests are large in the back. Sadly those are too large for me. I did not have time to put in the shaping darts so I had to send the ever so soft jacket above back. Yet their knit tops, sweaters and cardigans drape beautifully off my shoulder blades, so that is not a problem. But if you need a lot of room in the back, well there you go! Silhouttes is the line of plus size fashions I am most familiar with. I have not tired their woven pants yet, but I love thier leggings!

I am sorry it took so long to get back to you Mrs. Carrington. And I hope this info can be of some assistance as you in your efforts to make a good impression to your daughter. When she goes to school she might be told that we larger women are also at a risk health wise. This happened to my child. Like they need one more thing to be frightened of, along with fire drills and lock down drills. They even had a Slim Healthy week theme last year. So it helps to reassure our girls that we are healthy too!
Best wishes
