Here’s Where All The DDD Bras Are Hiding
Real talk: Being a DDD cup size isn’t easy (I should know, I am one.) Still, no one should suffer from a lack of bra options just because they happen to have a less common size. And luckily, there are still a solid number of brands that make 28-44DDD/E bras (DDD = an E cup in UK sizing), from T-shirt bras to plunge bras and everything in between.
Not sure where to find them? Next time you’re stressing that you can seem to find your size, try scoping out these stores.
You’ll find a substantial selection of DDD/E bras by scouring the Internet — just be certain of your size in a particular brand since you can’t try them on.
With over 250 brands to choose from, HerRoom has a noteworthy number of bras in the DDD cup size. In addition to your basic product photos and descriptions, this e-retailer also offers measured images to help you figure out how a bra will fit your particular body type, and even photos of the interior of the cups so you understand how they’ll function. Moreover, comments and tips from a pro fitter will help you further determine whether a particular bra will work for you. HerRoom even provides photos that show how the bra looks under six different necklines, so you’ll know whether it’s a practical purchase given your wardrobe.
There are a number of perks to shopping on Breakout Bras. For one, this site is ultra selective in which lines it carries, and only offers brands that make consistently well-fitting, high-quality bras with extensive size ranges. Breakout Bras also offers free shipping and a repeat customer discount. The site has a solid array of size DDD cup bras, and on each product page, you’ll find insightful comments from a pro fitter. This additional info, such as whether the band size on a certain longline bra runs small, or whether a sports bra is particularly well-suited to high-impact physical activity.
It’s hard not to love Brayola — the site provides photos uploaded by real women wearing the bras, which can be helpful in guiding your shopping decisions. The site’s selection of DDD cup bras spans everything from wire-free bras to posture back support bras and convertible bralettes.
Local Lingerie Boutiques
What some boutiques lack in quantity of product they more than make up for in quality.
Advantages of shopping at a local lingerie boutique:
Shopping in-person at your local lingerie boutique has the obvious advantage of allowing you to get a professional fitting, as well as some individualized attention and assistance in choosing bras that are best for you. You can also shop the selection of some boutiques online as well, though.
Hourglass Lingerie is all about embracing your curves, and finding undergarments that help you to do so. This Baltimore-based boutique also has a team of sizing specialists on hand that you can contact with any questions you have regarding fit. From supportive sports bras to lace-covered plunge bras, the store boasts a wide range of options.
Consider browsing the vast variety of undergarments at Linda the Bra Lady as well. Once you’ve filtered out the DDD cup bras, you can narrow your search results by color, style, brand, and underwire or wire-free.
It’s safe to say that department stores have a wealth of options to choose from when it comes to lingerie, and that includes DDD cup sizes.
For example, Nordstrom has an impressive number of bras in this cup size. If there’s a store near you, it might be worth going to do your shopping in person, as their expertly trained staff can conduct a complimentary fitting while you’re there.
Lord & Taylor
Another department store to try is Lord & Taylor. After sorting by your DDD cup and band size, you can filter results by color, price, brand, and style.
Finding bras you love in your size shouldn’t be a struggle. One final tip before you start shopping: It’s worth noting that a DDD cup size can also be labeled as an F in US sizing. Moreover, when converting to UK sizing, it’s important to know that a DDD is the same as an E cup.
