There’s finally a bralette for busty babes

Finally!

Being a slightly bustier gal comes with some pluses, that’s fo’ sho. Effortless cleavage is obvs one, as well as the likelihood of looking amazing in any swim suit. But, there are some downsides too: strapless dresses are generally a no-go, as are some singlets – especially those that show any sort of side-boob.

Clothing restrictions of any sort can be a real pain, that’s why the launch of lingerie brand Lively’s new bralette for ladies with larger boobs comes as such great news, especially for those bigger than a C cup.

The ‘Busty Bralette’, as it has been dubbed, is designed to flatter anyone with a larger bust. It ranges from size 34D to 38DDD, and comes in two pretty colour choices – pale pink and ebony – making them super wearable.

We love a brand that listens to its customers, so we’re digging the fact the the Busty Bralette was created based on feedback.

“Inclusivity has always been one of our brand’s most important pillars, so extending sizing has always been a goal; we knew over a year ago that we wanted to offer extended sizes, especially in bralettes,” Lively’s founder and CEO, Michelle Cordeiro Grant told Refinery 29.

“It was something so rare in the category, and we definitely saw it as a void in the market.”

Slight problem peeps – Lively doesn’t ship to NZ yet, but you can always get the hook ups through NZ Post‘s YouShop tool.

Plus, there’s always Kiwi brand Lonely who offer stunning designs up to size 36DD in some of their underwire styles.

Winning!
