Lingerie Shopping: Bra Boutiques in the United States

This lingerie directory has been compiled by Source Du Mal, a young lingerie enthusiast from Chicago who is an avid advocate for plus size and full bust options in lingerie.

I have had many conversations on Twitter about bras and have seen many industry figures speak about the public perception about bras and the seeming divide between the consumer and the perceived ‘appropriate cost’ of bras. One major issue that keeps popping up is the fact that many women who are full bust simply don’t know where to go. Being both a plus size and a fuller bust woman, I empathize with that sentiment, because being a 34GG/H cup means I can’t just walk into any store and find an array of bras in my size with ease.

I have spoken recently on twitter about the importance of access in relation to the lingerie world. I define access as being able to physically go into a brick and mortar store, be fitted, and try on bras in one’s size. Even in the age of online shopping and the existence of Bratabase, having the ability to walk into a store and know before purchase that a bra fits is paramount to consumer experience. This is especially important because of the existing stigmas surrounding larger breasts, the lack of knowledge about sizes available, the notion that larger bras are ugly, and the perception that fuller bust bras are ‘overpriced.’ Having better access is the key to dispelling these false perceptions as well as bringing a lot of people into a brand new world of beautiful bra styles for all body shapes.

With that said, I have taken the time to search for bra boutiques across the US that do fittings and carry bra sizes outside of the usual “core sizing” of 32-38 A-DDD. These are not traditional department stores like Macy’s and JCPenney, as they explicitly state they carry bands as small as 28 and as large as 56+, with cup sizes from AA to N and beyond. Many of these shops are also certified to fit post-mastectomy bras and bra forms.

A lot of these are local small businesses that would definitely benefit from more patronage, because, as Cora has said, the more you shop your local boutiques, the more pressure stockists have to supply those beautiful bras and lingerie pieces.
