Any woman who is well-endowed in the bust will recognise the fashion dilemmas which large breasts can cause. Sometimes your button-up tops may gape open at the front, dresses may not hand right or you might feel that your cleavage is just too much. It is for women who suffer these types of problems that the minimiser bra was created. We look at what a minimiser bra is, and what it can do for you.
Minimiser Bras: A Great Choice for Big Busts
While many women long for a bigger bust, those women who do have large breasts can encounter a range of problems. They may find it hard to get fashionable clothes which offer a proper fit, and the weight of their breasts may be uncomfortable and cause posture issues and pain if they are not properly supported. Some larger breasted women may even be considering breast reduction surgery, which is a major operation, not to be taken lightly. An alternative to going under the knife is to try wearing a minimiser bra.
Minimiser bra styles are strictly for women who are plus-sized or wear bigger cup sizes. The minimiser bra is made from soft, flexible, supportive and durable fabrics such as cotton, microfibre and nylon. The styling of a minimiser bra compresses the breasts, without constricting the wearer's movements, up to one cup size smaller than normal. A minimiser bra is likely to have a built-in underwire to create extra stability in the breast tissue, and may be seamless for greater comfort.
For larger busted women, the minimiser bra is a god-send. A minimiser bra can be worn under many fashionable garments to create a natural look, and will give large busted women a greater sense of control and body confidence. Women who have a large bust but enjoy working out may find that the minimiser bra is a boon stopping the breasts from bouncing excessively during low to medium impact activity.
Fitting a Minimiser Bra
When fitting a minimiser bra, comfort is key. You will want to wear your minimiser bra throughout the day, so look for designs which feature wide, adjustable shoulder straps. This is important because narrow straps may irritate the shoulders or leave welts. An adjustable fit means that you can tailor the straps of your minimiser bra for an excellent fit. Remember to take your measurements every time you buy a bra to get the best fit possible.
The best thing about a minimiser bra is that it gives a sleeker silhouette which will make you feel feminine, not frumpy, and make sure that your clothing fits better on top.
