5 myths about big busts
Big-busted women can't exercise? Not true! Five myths you can safely ignore if you have a large bust:
“Many suppliers offer B and C cups. Very small or large cups are much more difficult. We have been dealing with large cup sizes for decades and acquired a lot of specialist knowledge in this area.”
- Georg Weber-Unger Sen., owner and bra expert
Bras with perfect fit and support up to J cup.
If you think that bras in large sizes are only available with wide, thick straps and unattractive shapes, you are mistaken. Wide straps take the strain off your back and shoulders. But if a bra fits well, the cup and the back section should support most of the weight of the breast. Lingerie with breast support between the cups and sturdy material at the back provides a good hold and feels soft on the skin.
Wrong! As explained in Myth 1, it’s not all down to the straps when it comes to size. The multi-functional Padded Basic by Rosa Faia can be worn without straps up to cup size G, thanks to sturdy staves in the sides and a firm cup.
There’s no holding large breasts back during jogging or riding with all that “up and down”? In the category of ‘maximum support’ sports bras - bras that provide sufficient support during high intensity exercise - you can now find sizes up to H cup. This means that everything will stay where it belongs during sports.
You don’t enjoy going to a beach, lake or outdoor swimming pool because you’re constantly worried that, with a full bosom, something may slip? The solution: Swimwear specifically with big cups - models offering the required support and enveloping your bosom beautifully.
It’s completely normal if your breasts are not entirely symmetrical or of equal size. And let's not forget that "the girls" change all the time during the menstrual cycle and for other reasons, like during pregnancy.
We wear it daily, up to 17 hours sometimes. It is our loyal companion that supports us, relieves pressure and emphasises our best assets.
But just between us: Are you always honest about your cup size? Women with a small bust size often choose a larger cup and women with a large bosom think that a smaller cup size can conceal their bust.
Get measured at a specialist retailer
But wait! That’s not a good idea. The wrong bra size can cause significant health problems, such as chronic neck or back pain. That is why you should have your size measured accurately and obtain comprehensive advice when buying underwear, and not just once. After all, our breasts keep changing over time.
