While some relish the moment of being able to take your bra off as soon as you walk through the door, some fuller-busted people prefer to avoid going completely sans support. Bigger busts can sometimes be uncomfortable to work around while sleeping, while sometimes people just want some light support for lounging around the house in. An option that’s in between going fully braless or remaining in your underwired, four-part cup construction.
Below is a round up of some supportive sleepwear for fuller busts, including details on available sizing and price ranges:
I’m starting this list off with one of the more luxurious options, mainly because I’m so in love with Bustoire’s babydoll designs (also pictured at the top of this article). I adore their vintage 1920/30s inspired nightwear which is made to fit across various sizes from 28-30 DD-F, up to 36-38 J-KK. These items are made to order, and because of the luxury fabrics and finishes used cost £485-£520.
A more affordable option is Bravissimo, a fuller-bust specialist manufacturer and retailer. They sell a selection of sleep bras, as well as camisoles and nightgowns with built-in support. You can choose between padded and unpadded options which, depending on the item, are available from a 30D-38GG/36H, with some styles going up to a 38J.
NK iMODE offer three differing levels of bust support: natural, moderate, and maximum. The maximum support designs are made to fit sizes XS-XL, which their size guide states covers cup sizes A-E. Choose between bralettes, chemises, and full length nightgowns; all made from silk charmeuse and lace, and $110-$322 CAD.
Nui Ami also offers supportive bralettes which are perfect for sleep or lounging. Their cup size sleepwear comes in sizes 30-32 A-B up to 38-40 G-GG. The designs are made from silk, jersey, and French Leavers lace – all at a surprisingly affordable price point of £70-£185.
Figleaves is always one of my favourite places to shop DD+ bras, but did you know they also sell their own line which includes specially-designed DD+ nightwear? Their camisoles and chemises have hidden bust support and are available in UK sizes 8-18, and up to a 20 in selected designs. Best of all, you can get a camisole and shorts set for only £35, with the highest price point reaching only £50.
Finally, Boostwr have recently rebranded as Élevé Intimates and launched their new website this past week. At the moment their only in-stock items are the Spark Nightie in various colours. At the moment the nightie is only available in sizes S-XL. But one coming-soon item is the Carry On cami set, available in their full size range of XS-XL (US Sizes 2-14) which, according to the size chart, fits up to a 38H bust. Come January, the Bustie Bride Nightie will be available to order too, as will the Exhale Tank Top.
What is your preferred level of bust support for sleepwear? Do you find it more comfortable to retain some light support, or would you rather go completely without?
Thank you for the feature! 🙂
Some older people just want pajamas or t-shirts with a little built in support and not have to wear a sleep bra and not sexy stuff
Bravissimo has the ‘plainest’ looking stuff from this list, although no PJs or t-shirts with built-in support I’m afraid (not currently anyway). They do have some simple, wide-strapped sleep camis though.
These are very much needed. Would also help to have larger sizes and cotton chemises.
