For too long, sexy and trendy have been mutually exclusive with curvy. But with the combined force of shoppers who know what they want and brands (ahem) who know how to stock it comes the power to buck business as usual.
Our collection of edgy, gorgeous bra and panty sets is curated to fit and flatter fuller figures. Hot tip: Always keep an eye on fashion-forward brands like Elomi, Curvy Couture, Paramour, Bramour, Sculptresse, Dita Von Teese, Scantilly by Curvy Kate, Goddess and Pour Moi. They really know their way around plus-size style that moves the sartorial needle.
The joy of sets is how these match-ups effortlessly ensure your cutest, curviest Valentine’s Day. (Load up your shopping bag on Bare Necessities, then click “email bag” to drop a hint to your significant other…or, you know, scoop it up for yourself.)
Elomi Matilda Convertible Plunge Bra: With bold color choices, convertible J-hook, embroidered mesh trim that cradles your natural shape and, oh yeah, ridiculously amazing three-part cup support, it’s easy to see why Matilda is one of our most popular bras (bands 32-46, cups DD-JJ). The coordinating briefs (S-4x) have a great fit to boot(y).
Elomi Sachi Plunge Cage Bra: Four-part-cups lift and center while elastic straps give it that cool cage-bra flavor (bands 34-46, cups DD-JJ). Polish off the look with mesh panties (M-4X) that can veer either everyday or risqué. Or try the whole thing in leopard print. Two words: ME and OW.
Scantilly by Curvy Kate Surrender Bra: The combined effect of this bra and bottom is elegant meets edgy. Delicately embroidered sheer tulle belies the shaping and support the underwire provides (bands 30-38, cups DD-HH); the satin-and-sheer keyhole-back brief (S-XL) is nearly too hot to handle.
Paramour Stunning Balcony Bra: Though this mesh bra seems impossibly gravity-defying, its precise fit, striking texture and surprising lift are real (bands 32-42, cups C-H). The low-slung bottoms (S-XL) are equally unexpected, with angular edges, a deeeep V and a mesh back panel.
Goddess Heather Comfort Side Support Bra: The support of a seamed underwire, with satin-and-lace cups that lend style in an impressive size range (bands 34-46, cups DDD-O). It goes great with the Adelaide brief (M-4X).
Dita Von Teese Star Lift Full Cup Bra: As sexy as it is sophisticated, fans rave about how well this bustier-inspired bra fits (bands 38-44, cups C-F). The fabulous high-waist full briefs (XL-3XL) really showcase Dita’s signature style; a lace X marks the spot.
Pour Moi Hush Lace Cage Demi Bra: Lace, tassels, bows and all manner of straps put a boudoir spin on a shockingly comfortable underwire demi-cup bra (bands 30-40, cups DD-G). And don’t miss the flirty Remix brief (8-18).
