Full Cup Bras – Who, What, Why?


Full Cup Bras – Who, What, Why?

Full cup bras offer comfortable support

Sweater weather is here, and you know what that means ladies… more bra options! Full cup bras (aka cut and sewn bras, seamed bras, full coverage bras, etc) won’t show under your chunky knits. They provide more shaping and uplift than summer bras like strapless and t-shirt styles.

Full cup bras are ideal for ladies with fuller busts, or soft breast tissue, who are looking for maximum comfort and support. Designed with multi-part cups and side panels that lift and shape the breast, these bras contain breast tissue, minimizing bumps and bulges. Full cups bras usually range from F-H cups, with some styles available up to an N cup.

Whether you prefer modest or intricate bras, don’t worry—we’ve got your girls supported!


First Lady of Bras

PrimaDonna makes bras designed specifically for fuller busted ladies. Their full cup bras cover the upperbreast completely, keeping you smooth and secure. Their underwires are placed strategically to support the entire breast without slippage. The wide shoulder straps, connecting to a shaping back panel, ensure a strong construction that stays in place all day.

PrimaDonna is perfect for the woman who:

  • Wants complete coverage
  • Is looking for a firm bra that sits high on the breasts
  • Has less upperbreast, loose skin, or asymmetrical breasts
  • Has a very active lifestyle/job
  • Has a prosthesis, or partial prosthesis (the bra may need some adaptation)
  • Has almost any breast type – they’re all-around excellent bras!

Norah Bra by Empreinte

Elements of Elegance

Empreinte bras are made to provide the perfect balance of comfort, style and support. Every design is based on 5 key points that ensure supreme quality. They aim to make each pattern “as close as you can get to a custom made bra”.

  • The backs of the bras are made with a unique German material, designed for Empreinte, that keeps them from riding up. The bands keeps their shape better than the average bra, making them last longer.
  • All of Empreinte’s bras have a “chimney” back, creating a perfect balance between the front, back and sides, ensuring they stay parallel to the floor. There are 3 different hook sizes for different cup and band sizes.
  • The cup fabrics are “blocked” – there are no elastane threads. This provides better strength and longevity. Blocked side panels bring the fullness of the bust up and in.
  • The reduced strap elasticity offers extra support and comfort–they won’t slip around or stretch out. There are 3 different strap widths for different cup and band sizes.
  • The underwire’s closed “U” shape creates a slimmer silhouette. The superior quality wires and channeling avoid wire-twisting and moving. Every bra size has a uniquely fitted wire size for optimum support and comfort.
