We tried & tested some DD+ bras from Ultimo…
Kayleigh who has a fuller bust, tried a lace bra and a strapless bra from the Ultimo collection.
Here is her DD+ wearer report:
“First I tried out Ultimo’s Low Back Strapless Bra, from their DD-FF range. Anyone with a fuller bust will understand the struggle to find a strapless bra which actually supports your bust! Straps really are essential for us, or so I thought!
This is definitely the most supportive strapless bra I have ever tried and is probably the most supportive strapless bra you could possibly find – and, as a 36F, I don’t say that lightly!
However, I recommend buying a cup-size smaller. I wore a 36E and it fitted much better than my usual F as I filled it out better therefore making it much more supportive. A deep band at the back and the underwiring added to its supportiveness. The underwiring is a complete god-send and makes the bra super flattering! I wore this bra under an off-the-shoulder top for a night out and my bust felt supported all evening.
The pliable texture and the clever shaping provide a stunning cleavage boost, which I didn’t think was possible with a strapless bra! Wearing it a cup size down, also made it a better fit, so I would recommend that.
“After that, I tried out their Iona Lace Cup Bra in timeless black. This is a floral lace bra with adjustable straps also from the Ultimo DD-plus collection. The dark lace is prettily accentuated by soft-nude microfibre lining. It has a concealed underwire but no padding, just the lace-and-microfibre cup
I had never worn a bra without padding so I was slightly apprehensive that it wouldn’t be as supportive as I was used to. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The bra was super comfortable and once I adjusted the straps to fit, I was immediately aware of how much support it gave me; it definitely held everything in the right place and gave me a seriously impressive cleavage! It looked good under my clothes, too, and there was no bumpy texture from the lace showing through my top.
I wore the bra for the entire day at work. It was so comfortable, I honestly felt like I wasn’t wearing a bra, and although it was quite a delicate fabric, it was definitely supportive. As a 36F-cup, I didn’t think I would be able to wear such a filmy bra! I would 100% recommend it for ladies who have a fuller bust.”
Do you have a fuller bust and struggle to find supportive bras?
