A Beginner’s Guide to Shopping for a Basque
Blog Introduction: Every woman deserves to feel confident, beautiful, and sexy—no matter her size. And when you’ve got a larger bust, finding lingerie that makes you feel all of those things can sometimes feel like an elusive Holy Grail. But with a little time and effort (and maybe some trial and error), you’re sure to find a basque that fits both your body and your personal style perfectly. Happy shopping!
Choosing the Right Size
Basques are designed to fit snugly around the body, so it’s important to make sure you choose the right size. If you’re unsure of your size, most lingerie retailers offer bra fitting services—take advantage of them! Once you know your size, you can start shopping around for styles.
Types of Basques
There are two general types of basques: underwired and wireless. Underwired basques have, you guessed it, underwire in the cups to provide support for larger breasts. Wireless basques don’t have underwire but may have other elements like boning or pads to provide support. Both types of basques can be equally sexy and flattering, so it really comes down to personal preference.
Finding the Perfect Fit
The key to finding a basque that looks and feels amazing is all in the fit. Avoid basques that are too tight or too loose—you want something that hugs your curves in all the right places without being constricting.
Pay close attention to how the cups fit—you don’t want them to be too small or too big. And make sure the boning in the sides doesn’t dig into your skin; if it does, that’s a sign that the basque is too small. Once you’ve found a basque with a great fit, you can start thinking about style!
There’s nothing like finding the perfect lingerie piece—one that makes you feel confident, beautiful, and sexy. And when you’ve got a larger bust, that perfect piece can sometimes feel like an elusive Holy Grail. But with a little time and effort (and maybe some trial and error), you’re sure to find a basque that fits both your body and your personal style perfectly. Happy shopping!
