I sometimes feel that the lingerie world does some well in some respects, and fails slightly in others. I often get women writing to me asking aboout pretty bras with larger backs and smaller cups, and I can only ever offer a handful or suggestions.
The range is available from a 38-48 back, B – G cups and size 12-30 briefs. It contains a mixture of bodies, babydolls, slips, bras and knickers, and there are gorgeous patterns and cuts aplenty. It strikes the perfect balance between sexy and functional without being looking frumpy and obviously plus size.
I was recently sent some pieces from ‘The Wave’ collection to try. I had to sister size as I sadly don’t quite fit the cup range, and so these photos are more to show how the pieces look on a larger body, rather than how they fit.
The knickers are a size 22, and they are amazing! I love a high brief, and these are comfy and pretty. As I mentioned, the bras aren’t the best fit on me personally, but they will be perfect for boudoir style shoots. The bands come up a little firm – rather like Curvy Kate. I cannot comment on the cups given the sister sizing, but I did find them super supportive. The multiway bra gave me some great cleavage, and the straps seemed super secure – sometimes they can slide out very easily in multiway styles. I think that the price points are reflective of the quality and the engineering that has gone into these items.
I really like Figleaves Curve’s first foray into plus size. I can’t wait to see the next designs, and I really hope they expand their sizes. Ideally with larger cups, but more importantly I would like to see smaller cups. Starting at a B is great – but larger ladies with smaller busts have very few options. Also, given that the briefs start at a 12, it would be nice to see smaller back. Size 12 women are unlikely to need a 38 backed bra, and there are 10 brief sizes Vs 6 band sizes. BUT, this is just the beginning, and who knows what will happen next! I for one am impressed thus far!
