I usually wear and write about Panache and other pricier large cup bras. Now that I have seen Lavinia bras, I really hope I am closer to an H or G cup size! Unlike the lovely Harlequin Hestia Balconnet large cup bras I wrote about earlier in the week, yet similar in design, this plus size shelf bra, by Lavinia, comes in full figure size up to 36 to 40B to DD/E. Even women who need B & C cup bras can enjoy this sexy bra style. They are $43 less than the beautiful Panache bras I wrote about on Wednesday!
Their best selling Balcony Push Up Bra below comes in sizes 34 to 40B to DDD, is just $49, and comes in black, white and beige, and has excellent reviews!
Need larger cup bras? Their Full figure lace plus size bra, underwire support comes in sizes 32D to H, 34B to G, to 40B to H and 42B to G! It has a unique menswear and lace look and it’s marked down to $51!
Their semi-sheer bra I have at the top of our Intimates page now is a full cup style that comes in sizes 36B to DD, 36B to D and 38 to 42B to DDD. It’s marked down $11 off. I like the review that says it is not only beautiful, but also comfortable.

and this lingerie line’s beautiful basques below at Her Room, in ivory, and at Bravissimo, in black as well as ivory.
Bravissimo’s band sizes include 28DD to G, both stores have the basques and Her Room the bra in sizes 30 to 38D to G!
Click on theses bras pictures above to shop for them at Her Room. If you are using US currency, you’ll like the basque’s price better at Bravissimo, $91, as opposed to Her Room’s $129. Sadly, Bravissimo does not have the bra yet…
The basque, in black, might be just the thing to wear under this sensuous looking gown by Igigi.
I was playing around with a price comparison tool I put on our pages at Plus Size Women’s Clothing, it’s in the right column of all of its pages if you want to play with it too.
I clicked on Plus Size Lingerie, put either large cup, or full figure bras into their search engine and ran into a lingerie line I never heard of before:
They have large cup and plus size bras in sizes 32 to 44A to H.
They have lots of balcony push up bras and shelf bras in full figure sizes like this one below.
It comes in sizes 32 to 44D to E
Have you tried bras by Lavinia? If so, how are they?

Click on this bra’s picture below that takes you to Figleaves. Then mouse over, especially the right side, and check this new design out.
What do you think?
Very much like the Savannah full figure bras in blue, whose picture you can also find at Figleaves, with the same side support structure, on its left side, in that particular picture.
Sadly, there are few reviews, available at Her Room so far. Both seem to have sizing problems. One does mention the front and center effect.
It seem, especially when you are both full figured and full busted, hard to avoid that matronly look. T
This style of side support in full busted bras just might work to ditch the matron form look!
Have any of you tried either of these bras? Or one with a similar style of side support? If so, does it do that front and center, perky breast effect I suspect it does?

They have 2 others in this line, that look just great, but they are all in the $130 to $150 price range. A bit too steep for some, like me for instance…Hips and Curves does have a wide selection of much more affordable plus size corsets, many of which have lace up back, but I doubt many are cotton lined. Still good for cooler parts of the year or for erotic lingerie purposes just in the summer. They all look great! This jacquard with lace inset corset comes in sizes 38 to 50!
They also have a wide variety of leather and patent corsets and lingerie, just for full figure women. Where you will find many lace up styles of leather and patent corsets.
This zip-front leather corset also has a lace up back!
Currently, also a lace up, and more to my price range, this mere $62 - $56 lace up the back corset, with side hook closure corset comes in black, purple and royal in two size ranges. Click on its picture to go to it at Bigger Bras in sizes 38 to 44, then scroll down to find it in sizes 46 to 50.
I have long though of some of Fredrick’s, (who have their corset / shapewear section together, likely where they belong), has some nice plus size corsets. Like their Renaissance corset, which comes in sizes up to 3XL, (Bust-54, Waist-46, Hips-54).
This one comes in red and black too.
For a women like my self, who is full busted, I like the idea of shoulder straps, especially if I am not going to be wearing a bra I trust with a corset. This corset does have a lace up back. Judging from how high up its side is in the picture, it may have a moderate to high back too. All of which should help with bust support.
Even if your shapewear is not showing, if you know you look pretty underneath, don’t you feel better? Next to the naturally customizing effect of lace up back corsets, wearing pretty lingerie corsets for shaping will also help you feel beautiful from your skin out!
This is in response to Harpy’s comment on our blog of 11/7/09 about Lytess, Re-Shaping wear?

When you think about shapewear, do you consider the longer-term effects of wearing it? Maybe we should. I had my own experience with Squeem’s fajas, in its plus size waist cincher vest style, a while back and lost inches after wearing this compression shapewear style.
Now I have been reading about Lytess’ shapewear line with micro-encapsulation of cosmetic slimming agents, like caffeine. You can watch this Enews flick about it here.
According to Bliss’ FAQ about Lytess shapewear page, we can expect to loose 1.5” off our waists and 1” off our hips wearing the Lytess slimming corrective belt. It gets excellent reviews at Bliss.
You will also find Lytess at Amazon
The reviewers of the lytess slimming corrective belt, as seen below at Amazon are not so good. Amazon does have a variety of similar items which some of the reviewers of Lytess shapewear refer to in their reviews.
Lytess also has shaping shorts, Capri and leggings, which two bloggers at Fig leaves blog review after wearing for 18 days, with very good results! Read their Shaping up post where they give a few fashion pointers on wearing these styles!
The up shot of my looking into this is:
According to Bliss World, Lytess shaping styles sizes are S/M = 26 – 30”waist, and L/XL= 32 – 36” waist. At Bliss World their products get great reviews.
Amazon has a similar, yet different, selection of Lytess product, most without reviews so far.
- Apparently they have a caffeine infused line, and a orange peel infused line, and they even have a slimming arm sleeve, and a slimming push up panty, but the largest size, waist band wise, they have available is the XL, equaling just up to a 36” waist. Not what some women would call plus size shapewear, yet perfect for others…
The woman who wrote the Fig leaves post says she wore the Lytess size small / medium, though she wears a size 14, and that the bike short style fits great under jeans.
The way I look at it:
For me, the only way I am going to confront shapewear is when the temperature is under 50 degrees, for extra warmth purposes as much as any thing else. The rest of the year, it is just too hot.
Shapewear costs plenty, or so it seems to me. As long as you are going to consider buying any, you should, if possible get,
- Long lasting results
- Relief from back pain
- Excellent posture
Yeah why not, it cost plenty; you should get plenty for your bucks.
The only reason I stopped buying Squeem waist cincher vests, is likely because I am short. Apparently after to gut reduction from wearing my first one to smithereens, I ended up getting poked in the underbust and thighs.
If you are taller than 5’1.5” the Squeem fajas might work just as well for you.
Her Room now carries them too! They have them in sizes up to 5XL and they have reviews from full figure women who wear them. They have both the vest style and waist cincher style below. Click on either picture to shop them at Her Room.
And the rubber waist cincher, which has excellent to o-kay reviews from full figure women.
The wait cincher above really does have a rubber smell. One thing the reviews about the Lytess waist belt reviews say is that is smells wonderful!
The Squeem styles really do deliver what I mentioned I expect from shapewear. Now, with even less of a gut, but still one I would like to tame, I may well try the Lytess corrective belt, or leggings or shorts. Many of the Amazon reviewers complain about in the Lytess belt is roll up and down. Bliss wearers do not. Naturally with stays, like Squeem styles, you can not get that. With pant styles, I will not get some more of that back fat off…
A tough choice, Lytess belt or leggings, but possibly a good product worth trying. If you are taller than I, the Squeem ones above will do you good, until spring…then it is just too hot.

Especially since now that I need a 34J rather than a 36J, I ordered and received one of my favorite bras. When I tried it on, I got that crummy, squished double boob effect by simply wearing a smaller band size.
Yet my every day favorite Panache Tango II Super Bra fits perfect in its smaller band size. Which is just what you would think right? Yet not so my other favorite Panache Harmony bra, I am assuming it is just a quirk of that single bra I received, but now I will be reluctant to order it in a 34J.
It seems you must try each one on, to find out if it fits. There was a time in recent years when I, and judging from some reviews, for a time, other women, received Le Mystere’s Dream Tisha full fit bras with pointy cups. Then other women’s reviews, after that time got better, with no mention of pointy cups! I suppose mishaps will happen.
How nice it would be to simply hand it to the local department store’s bra fitter, explain one’s surprise at these problems and let her take it from there. That would be much better than bringing back to the post office, wondering whether to order it again, or not, in my new band size? Or should I try a larger cup size, or what?
Thank you Plus Size Sports bras! You are right! There are plenty of nice online stores that offer great style and prices! Her own, Plus Size Sports Bra, offers a good selection of Champion and other sports bras at excellent prices.
I still like the Enell sports bra, and find that now, until 11/30/09, using code 20shop at Bigger Bras, on orders of $75 you can get 2 of these excellent bras, if you order an in-stock one, or two. Then you can get 20% off them! They have all Enell sizes 0 to 8, or, (32C to 52DD), in stock, but you would have to order at least 2, or one, and something else. At Bigger Bras these great high compression sports bras are just $54, it is usually $60. Or you could just get one, yet use there code freeship to get it with paying for the shipping, (that offer is good on any orders over $25).
Plus Size Bras and Danae’s comments were on this blog’s post of 10/26/09,
Knicker’s Americas denial of Larger Cup Size Bras has some good news for us full figured, and makes some good points!
