Shopping for larger cup size bras can be a real struggle. You may start the shopping all enthusiastic and with the belief that for once, you will not be shoved into two times the smaller bra size. However, you may soon be disappointed. Don’t lose your hopes just yet. Some intimates stores such as Soma provide bras for all body types, including curvy women.
Who says that bustier women have to settle for a limited choice of bras? With Soma, every woman can find what she desires.
First, I want to tell you how Soma’s bras fit, what sizes they come in, and then get to specific bras you can buy in DDD along with a few bra reviews. Let’s get started…
Soma Bra Sizes
Soma offers a wide range of sizes so that women of all shapes and sizes can find the right fit. You can filter the search by the band sizes and the cup sizes. You can find the band sizes from 32 to 44. If you are not sure about your size, don’t try to guess, take a measuring tape in your hands and get the right number. When it comes to the cup sizes the choice goes all the way to a G, so you don’t have to worry about not finding a bra that is big enough. And what is the most important, be honest with yourself about your real bra size. Wearing the right size and shape can change-up your look completely by making a big difference in your posture.
What Bra Sizes does Soma Sell?
What I like about Soma is that you can find all sizes and shapes in one place. As I mentioned above, there is definitely not a lack of option when it comes to Soma. Especially for the bustier women who don’t always have the luck to find the right size in the shops. Whether you need a new sports bra for the gym or you wish to feel sexy in the beautiful lingerie, you can find all the styles in the larger bra cup sizes.
Do Soma Sizes Run Small or Big?
Even if you have never been to any Soma store and you are not sure whether their sizes run small or big, don’t worry, you can easily find your perfect Soma size. When you visit the store feel free to ask the personnel for help. They will gladly assist you in finding your size. And don’t you dare to hesitate because you feel embarrassed about your bigger bust, the fitters at the store are there not just to assist you in finding the right bra but to help you to embrace and love your body. If you are having one of those lazy days and you don’t feel like leaving your comfy bed, you can still find out which is your bra size and make the purchase on their website. They have a bra fit guide online, where you can use their virtual tool to calculate your size. Just type in your measures and watch as the result appears.
Every company has its weak spots, so if you do go to Soma in person to be fitted, make sure you stand up for yourself if they try to put you in a bra that does not feel right. It’s not necessarily a common occurrence, but Soma as well as other lingerie companies has been known to put women in an ill fitting bra to make a sale.
Their largest bra size is a 44G, so women in a DDD cup should have no problems. However, Soma’s measuring tape is pre marked with sizes and employees have been accused of arguing with customers who claim they were fitted incorrectly. Again, not every Soma employee incorrectly fits women, but since it has been known to happen to others you should always be on the lookout for those sneaky employees.
According to the Soma website, a woman with a band of 34 inches and a bust of 40 inches should wear a 38B. Well, unless you know of some secret method to find your bra size, you’re supposed to subtract the band from the bust. The difference is equal to your cup size in letters.
That means A, B, C, D, DD, >DDD< is your cup size because that’s the sixth size up.
Where is Soma getting 38B from? Can you imagine trying to squish your DDD breasts into B cups? That sounds nightmarish! They also claim that a band of 36 inches and a bust of 42 inches is a 40C. If you do the math it is very clearly a 36DDD.
With that being said, most Soma employees ARE happy to fit you, but to avoid purchasing an item that isn’t your size, consider asking the associate what your exact measurements are and do the math yourself. Never let an associate measure you over your clothes and certainly don’t let them try to manipulate you about your bra size. In order to find your proper bra size you need to measure your bust AND your band in inches. You simply can’t know your bra size from your bust measurement alone, which is apparently the only thing some Soma employees measure.
Two women – one in particular was a soma employee – have publicly claimed they were wrongly fitted by Soma sales associates. It’s unclear if those employees were incompetent or if they just wanted to make a sale, but the experiences were so intense that both customers have blogged about it or created a thread via social media. (This was at two separate locations.) The women claimed that they entered the store and told the bra fitter what size they wear; the women were pretty much laughed off and then were told they were wrong. The fitters justified their comments with statements like “Oh, it’s okay. 80% of women don’t know their true size.” Both women were pressured or tricked into wearing bras that were not their size and one of them even purchased at least two bras at $56 a piece believing it was her size!
Plus Size Bras at Soma
Soma understands the struggle of bustier women whose simple search for a bra can end up being a nightmare. That is why their mission is to provide women with the larger cup sizes and the soft, comfortable, beautiful and sensual bras. Whatever you want, they probably have.
If you have a curvy shape like I do, you’re probably excited that some of these bras are available in DDD sizes, as well as even larger sizes. However, I still generally recommend that you shop online, as the selection of bras that actually fit you properly is much better.
So, ready to buy a bra at Soma? I’ve found all of the bras they offer in DDD cup sizes, and they’re listed here.
First, let’s start with Soma’s Vanishing Back bras, which the company claims are “new, improved, and better than ever”. These bras claim to smooth your back and sides.
Vanishing Back Full Coverage Bra
This bra promises “Buh-bye, back fat”, with the offer of a smooth silhouette. The full coverage bra offers a traditional back-close and comes in several styles, from the basic full coverage bra to cute bras with lace trim. There are more than a dozen different colors, from the basic ivory and navy to a sexy “feline” leopard print. The entire bra is seamless and has thin straps to hide under your smaller tees. It’s available in DD, DDD, and G cup sizes: 32DD, 32DDD, 32G, 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, 40DDD, 40G, 42DD, 42DDD, 42G, 44DD, 44DDD, and 44G.
Bustier reviewers suggested that the bra rides up in the back and isn’t as comfortable as it should be due to straps that are too thin. Others suggest that Soma reduced the quality of the bra from previous versions. However, other DD and DDD cup size reviewers said that the bra banished the fat that comes from having bigger boobs, which makes me think maybe they should be wearing a larger size.
Vanishing Back Front-Close Lace Bra
If you wish for a bra that offers a proper support and looks sensual at the same time this is the winner. The Vanishing Back Front-Close Lace Bra is said to eliminate the bumps for that beautiful silhouette due to its seamless back. It is also offering secure front closure in combination with feminine and romantic lace design. Depending on what you prefer there are different lace designs such as the floral lace bra, the paisley lace, the lace trim bra and so on. It comes in various colors so you can choose which combination of lace, and color is just right for you. It is available in DD cup sizes: 34DD, 36DD, 38DD, and 40DD.
Reviewers say that they find this bra to be very comfortable, it fits great and looks beautifully. They would recommend it to any of their girlfriends. However, there are a few who claim that it is too tight on the back even with the larger cup size. Positive reviews are still in the lead, the only real problem being that it doesn’t have DDD sizes.
Now, let’s move on to the Embraceable line, which is promoted as “so comfortable and supportive, you’ll forget you have it on”. This line is all about the softness and support.
Embraceable Full Coverage Lace Bra
Here is another comfortable yet eye-pleasing piece. This bra is supposed to be the definition of softness. It has the stretch plush underwire cups and soft, and supportive bottom band. Foam cups will provide you with the full coverage and cup lining lies softly against your skin. What I find to be amazing is that it comes in so many mesmerizing designs. From the floral bra trimmed with lavender lace and a pretty satin bow to the charming pink polka dot pattern in combination with light pink lace, you can find it all. It comes in DD, and DDD cup sizes: 32DD, 32DDD, 34DD, 34DDD, 36DD, 36DDD, 38DD, 38DDD, 40DD and 40DDD.
Reviewers mostly praised the material and the fit of the bra which is as it is said to be soft and comfortable. The many patterns it comes with in combination with a pretty colored lace is another plus. The fit and comfort are said to be spot on. Most of the reviews claim that once they’ve tried this bra they had to buy at least one more.
Embraceable Full Coverage Wireless Unlined Bra
If you are searching for that simple yet comfortable everyday bra, this might be it. The Embraceable Full Coverage Wireless Unlined Bra grants you the maximum coverage and yet there is no wire underlining to spoil your comfort. It gives an equal support from the neckline and back. This bra comes in basic colors: black, light nude, and soft tan, which is perfect for those simple body-hugging shirts and dresses. It’s available in DD, DDD, and G cup sizes: 32DD, 32DDD, 32G, 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, 40DDD, 40G, 42DD, 42DDD, 42G, 44DD, and 44DDD.
Some reviewers claim that this is the far most comfortable bra they have ever tried. The full coverage combined with no wires is what every bustier woman needs when in search for comfort. When it comes to its downsides, one of the reviewers mentioned that the fabric was too thin so that the support wasn’t satisfying. Of course, it all depends on your body type.
Embraceable Strapless Bra
Most women love to wear the strapless dresses, which give you that romantic yet seductive feel. However, bustier women can find themselves in a problem if they can’t find the right strapless bra. Soma offers a solution by providing the Embraceable Strapless Bra. It has a full coverage and silicone along the back for a stay-put fit. Since it has detachable, adjustable elastic straps you can take them off or you can wear them in many different ways, such as with the straps in halter, center halter, one shoulder, straight back position or criss-cross for racerback styling. It comes in a black, light nude, and a soft tan color. Available cup sizes are DD, and DDD: 34DD, 34DDD, 36DD, 36DDD, 38DD, and 38DDD.
Reviewers who tried the bra say that they are surprised with how it feels just like wearing a normal bra. They say that it doesn’t have that uncomfortable “it will inevitably fall down” feel. It has a nice fit and stays on as long as you need. On the other side, the buyers expressed their wish that it comes in the different vibrant colors, not just in the basic ones. Still, you can always combine a basic color bra with clothes of any colors.
Embraceable Unlined Lace Trim Bra
Are you looking for a bra that has no lining, but still doesn’t have just that basic look? Here is the solution. This bra has the full coverage, double-layered cups which will give you the support you need. On the other hand, it has a beautiful lace trim and a lovely rhinestone accent and a satin bow. Due to the stretch in the fabric, the Embraceable Unlined Lace Trim Bra also provides the support and shaping for the women who have undergone lumpectomies by giving them a more natural shape. The colors available are soft tan and black. When it comes to the cup size, you can find it in DD and DD cup sizes: 34DD, 34DDD, 36DD, 36DDD, 38DD, and 38DDD.
Bustier reviewers are very satisfied with the fit of this bra. It looks great and feels good, which is what every busty woman wants. Some of them are wearing this bra style for several years and own them in every color. The reviewers did mention that it used to come in more colors and now it is only available in black and tan, so they wish that the color choice expands.
The next line to be mentioned is Memorable. The bras in this line are said to be “the bras with a custom fit.” It has the memory foam cups that create a perfect fit just for you. Besides the comfort and sleek fitting, it also has a modern styling.
Memorable Full Coverage Bra
This bra is claimed to be the perfect T-Shirt bra. If you are on the lookout for one, here is where you can find it. The memory foam cups create a natural shape with less gaping. The softness of the fabric runs both inside and out. Adjustable straps allow you to unhook them in the front and criss-cross them in the back. You can find them in every color, from the basic black and nudes, over the majesty blue and mint, to the floral pattern. It is available in the cup sizes DD, DDD, and G: 32DD, 32DDD, 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 40DD, 40DDD, 42DD, 42DDD, and 44DDD.
This bra is reviewed to be a nicely made product. Being comfortable, form fitting, flattering, and having a great coverage, this bra checks most of the boxes. Having so many colors to choose from gives you an opportunity to match it with all of your clothes. The reviewers said that the coverage is full so that you should take that in mind if you wish to wear it with more open front shirts and blouses since it will not work in those cases.
Memorable Full Coverage Lace Trim Bra
This bra offers you that perfect T-shirt bra spiced up with lace. You can still enjoy the custom fit memory foam cups and look amazing. The soft microfiber fabric feels great on the skin providing you with comfort and support at the same time. The lace is delicately put around the cup edges and in the center. The color specter is numerous. This bra comes in a white color, blue sea, soft tan, plum, rose color, Mochaccino, Viridian green, and darker blue. The sizes run from DD, over DDD, to G: 32DD, 32DDD, 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 40DD, 40DDD, 42DD, and 42DDD.
Bustier Reviewers claim that the bra fits true to the size and that the memory foam feels great. The comfort is definitely the biggest plus. Additionally, the pretty lace detailing is what drove many buyers to this particular bra. They say that if you don’t like the full on lace bras, but you still want to look sexy, this is the right bra for you.
According to the company, the Sensuous line gives you both “exquisite fit and embroidered lace”. This line is the key for bustier women who wish to exude sensuality and confidence. The seamed, mesh cups provide enhanced support and look very sexy. If you thought that you could never wear those romantic mesh cup bras and have good support, you thought wrong since this line gives you exactly that.
Sensuous Lace Unlined Bra
This elegant bra offers you the full coverage and shape-enhancing support. The cups are unlined, sheer and embroidered with a beautiful lace which covers even the camisole straps. The color combination is also astonishing. You can find a lovely lavender bra, a light pink one with hot pink lace, all nude shades, a Mochaccino and black lace combination and of course the essential ivory bra and the black lace bra. It comes in DD, DDD, and G cup sizes: 34DD, 34DDD, 34G 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, 40DDD, 40G, 42DD, 42DDD, 42G , 44DD, 44DDD, and 44G.
According to the reviewers, this bra gave them both a great fit and an amazing look. Finding a beautiful sheer bra which fits well is not always easy for bustier women and that is why they appreciate the Sensuous Lace Unlined Bra. However, being used to the simple microfiber bras, some find this bra to be uncomfortable after wearing it for a longer period of time. It still depends on what suits you personally.
Sensuous Lace Floral Balconet Bra
This limited edition version of their new Sensuous Lace Balconet Bra can leave you breathless. If you are a fan of a floral lace, you will love this extravagant bra. The sheer mesh back and underwire provide great support. The bra cups are semi-lined and they have a beautiful and colorful embroidered mesh overlay. The bra comes in a medium blue color in combination with lovely light pink, lavender, and rose-colored lace. It is available in the cup sizes DD, DDD and G: 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, and 42DD.
Reviewers characterized this bra as cute, comfortable, and sexy. The balconet bra provides the support, good coverage, and looks great. Many are looking forward to the new, limited edition balconet bras. Some did say that they wish that the bra has seams down the center of the pads.
Sensuous Lace Balconet Bra
What can be more romantic than a balconet floral lace bra? Now, Soma made it available even for women with larger breasts. This bra has a semi-lined cups with a floral mesh overlay. If you are not comfortable with a completely sheer bra this is a great one for you. It still has a sheer detailing, but it also provides you coverage. The straps are thin and adjustable. It makes it wearable with the thin strap shirts and dresses. It comes in three lovely colors: mochaccino-black, light nude and simple black. The cup sizes run from DD to G: 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, and 42DD.
What most reviewers love about this bra is the mix of sensuality and support. One of the advantages they mentioned is the thin adjustable straps which don’t cut into the skin but still provide the support. The lace detailing is said to be one of the things they love the most since they can finally look seductive and feel good in a bra.
Sensuous Sides 1 Inch Minimizer Bra
Here is something revolutionary from the Soma company. This bra smooths your sides and reduces the bust up to 1 inch. Besides that, the bra gives you the full coverage and the seamless silhouette. The cups are smooth and unlined with underwire so that it can provide you with the comfort and support at the same time. The straps on the bra are adjustable and they build up. It comes in black, ivory, and nude tones: soft tan and light nude. The available cup sizes are DD and DDD: 34DD, 34DDD, 36DD, 36DDD, 38DD, 38DDD, 40DD, and 40DDD.
The experiences of the reviewers prove that the bra is exactly what it is promoted to be. They say that it truly is comfortable, smooth, supportive and minimizing. However, they wish that the color choice is better. These colors are handy since they adjust to every style but still, women wish that the bra also comes in more vibrant colors and designs. In addition, the sizes could have a better range.
Sensuous Sides 3 Inch Minimizer Bra
Here is another revolutionary bra from Soma. This bra promises to reduce the bustline even up to 3 inches. You should definitely embrace your fuller chest area but if you would feel more comfortable with slightly smaller breasts you can give this bra a try. The cups are smooth and underwired and they give you the full coverage. This bra also has a pretty lace detail in the middle and a satin bow. The straps are wider at the bottom and they narrow down as they go up your shoulders. The ballet back keeps the adjustable straps in place and gives you an additional support. If you are wondering about the colors, you can find this bra in a black, light nude, and soft tan color. The cup sizes are DD and DDD: 34DD, 34DDD, 36DD, 36DDD, 38DD, 38DDD, 40DD, and 40DDD.
Most of the comments about this bra definitely have a positive note. Women love the great support and softness of it. Unlike the 1 inch minimizing bra, this one besides providing a bigger minimization, also has a lace detailing with a bow. Having that little detail makes it look less basic and plain. Again, like with the 1-inch bra, women wish that the bra comes in more colors.
Now, let’s move on to the Stunning line. The Stunning Support bras “lifts, shape, and smooth you” according to the company. This bra is perfect for bustier women since it has 3-zone support which provides a firm hold. Besides the great support, it also has a classy look.
Stunning Support Full Coverage Bra
This bra provides you with the full coverage and full support. It lifts your breasts and gives you that smooth look at the same time. The fabric is designed in a way that it has no bounce hold and the contour foam cups give an amazing support. It also has a beautiful floral lace pattern with a small rosette in the center. The colors vary from light nude, soft tan, ivory and black to blue sea and navy. The bra can be found in the cup sizes DD, DDD, and G: 32DDD, 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, and 40DDD.
The reviewers say that the bra lifts and supports their chest which is what they expected, so they are definitely satisfied with the result. Besides that, they say that it doesn’t lose the shape which is very convenient. However, some did have trouble with the fit, claiming that they needed a bigger size than they usually wear at Soma.
Stunning Support Strapless Bra
If you are in need for a strapless bra which lifts and supports your bust, here is what I have for you. This bra has a soft elastic with a silicone which will keep it in place and the seamless cups will be barely visible under your clothes. Even though it has an engineered lace, the design is such that it won’t show under your clothes. The removable straps allow you to wear it in various ways. The colors it comes in are soft tan and black. When it comes to the available sizes, they are DD, DDD, and G: 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, 40DDD, 40G, 42DD, 42DDD, 42G, 44DD, 44DDD, and 44G.
The reviews support what Soma claims, and women are very satisfied with the lift and support it provides. What they really love is the pretty design which is not visible under clothes so you can wear it even under the simple shirts and look great when you take it off. Again, the color choice could be better since they offer only two colors.
Stunning Support Balconet Bra
Here is another great solution if you are a type of girl who loves the balconet shape and is looking for a good lift and support. That is exactly what you will find in this bra. As the previous Stunning Support bras, it also has that stunning lace design which is not visible under the clothes. If you are a fan of the sweetheart neckline bras, which have a full support, this is the bra for you. The color choice is black, light nude, and soft tan. It is available in sizes DD, DDD, and G: 32DD, 32DDD, 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, 40DDD, 40G, 42DD, 42DDD, 42G, 44DD, 44DDD, and 44G.
“It is fantastic!” says one of the reviewers. Most of them say that it’s awesomeness lies in the fact that you don’t feel like you have a bra on but it gives you great support. Also, they like the way the underwire fits.
The next line we’ll be discussing is the Enticing lift. If you want a bra which lifts like a push up but has no padding, give this one a try. It is said to be “unlined, uplifting, and undetectable.” The flat lace makes it invisible and looks stunning.
Enticing Lift Strappy Unlined Balconet Bra
Besides its great support and lift, this bra has a really interesting and sultry look. It is a balconet style with a sweetheart neckline. The cups are covered in flat lace which makes it undetectable. Besides that, the bra has a triple strap detail and a center front keyhole which adds additional flair. It comes in a playful orange color, soft tan, mochaccino, and black color. The size range is from DD to G: 32DD, 32DDD, 32G, 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, and 40DDD.
Women love the look of this bra. Many women said that they were looking for a different looking bra for their bigger boobs and they finally found it with this one. The push up without uncomfortable padding is definitely a big plus. However, some did complain that they didn’t get the lift they were expecting for.
Enticing Lift Unlined Full Coverage Bra
If you are on the lookout for a push-up bra without padding which has a full coverage here is what Soma has prepared for you. This bra lifts, shapes, and covers everything you want to be covered. What could you want more? The straps are ultra flat and adjustable which is a great addition to the whole undetectable bra look. The beautiful flat lace is really eye-pleasing. The colors from which you can choose from are blue sea, light nude, soft tan, mochaccino, and black. The cup sizes available are DD, DDD, and G: 32DD, 32DDD, 32G, 34DD, 34DDD, 34G, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, and 40DD.
The reviewers praised the fit, the coverage, and the support. Another plus is that it doesn’t push the girls into the cleavage that makes them look thicker than they are. Also, some added that they love how it looks great and it doesn’t show the design under a white T-Shit. There were some complaints about the straps since the ladies wish that the straps were thinner.
Lastly, let’s not forget to mention the Soma Sport line which is what you could take a look at if you need a good sports bra for all your sports activities. They offer a light fit and a maximum support so that you can exercise without thinking about the bounce effect.
Soma Sport Max Support Underwire Sport Bra
This sports bra doesn’t just have the unlined, and underwired cups which have a nice fit but it also provides you with a no-bounce support so that you can engage in all high-impact activities. Having big boobs can no longer be your excuse for not exercising. Besides the adjustable straps which can also crisscross it also has a quick-dry fabric. You can choose from a wide variety of colors: hot pink, light blue, soft tan, plum, black and royal blue. It is available in the cup sizes DD, DDD, and G: 32DD, 34DD, 34DDD, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, 40DDD, 40G, 42DD, 42DDD, 42G, 44DD, 44DDD, and 44G.
Reading through the reviews I could mostly read that this is the most comfortable sports bra women have ever tried. It is well fitting and the colors are gorgeous, which is important considering how visual most women are. Some of the reviewers did say that they wish that the material was just a bit thicker.
Soma Sport Max Support Contour Underwire Sport Bra
The other bra from the Sport collection is also a high-impact sports bra so it provides a no-bounce, maximum support. The bra is lightly padded and the underwire cups have perforations for air flow. Besides providing you with compression so that your breasts stay in place it also gives you a flattering shape. Like the previously mentioned bra, this one also has a quick-dry fabric. The straps are adjusted at the front, which is convenient if you need to readjust them during the exercise. The available colors are plum, pink punch, soft tan, light blue, and black. There is also a choice of 2 colored bras: viridian green-black and royal blue-black. You also don’t have to worry about the sizes since it comes in DD, DDD, and G cup size: 32DD, 34DD, 34DDD, 36DD, 36DDD, 36G, 38DD, 38DDD, 38G, 40DD, 40DDD, 40G, 42DD, 42DDD, 42G, 44DD, 44DDD, and 44G.
Reviewers do agree with the claims that it provides the maximum support. They also give the thumbs up for the front, adjustable straps which can come in handy. The quick-dry fabric in combination with the great color choice and max support has proven to be a success.
