Bridal Lingerie at Curvy Kate
Here comes the BRIDE, supported and confident in Curvy Kate but how do you know which bra is right for your wedding outfit?
Well, our Bra Whisperer has the top tips to getting the foundations to your outfit perfect from D-K cup!
Off the shoulder, strapless or straight necklines are often highly desired by Brides and after years of manifesting the perfect dress – when it is time to try on your dream design, supporting your bust can be trickier than you first thought!
Our Bra Whisperer recommends that before you go wedding dress or outfit shopping, you visit a professional bra fitter or check you bra size via our Bra Fit Quiz. Once you know your current size, it is best to invest in a strapless, seamless plunge and multi-way bra to ensure than when you are shopping, you can try on all the dresses without worrying you don’t have the correct bra! Arriving to your dress shopping appointment with your 2 or 3 bra styles is so important as you are giving yourself the opportunity to try on as many options without any barriers.
A strapless bra supports your bust without the straps so that you can wear off the shoulder looks in comfort, support and style. Curvy Kate offer two strapless styles, it is down to personal preference and dress styles as to which you choose. We will start with our original Luxe Strapless, this bra has supported thousands of women for many years, and its gravity defying credentials have been put to the test with cartwheels, trampoline, pole dance, hula hooping and more!
This is the best strapless made for big boobs – the seamed cups offer lift and shape, as the silicone gripper elastic band and 3-4 hook and eye band hugs your curves without the worry of slipping.
Luxe is available in sizes 28-40” D-J cup and a wide range of colours including Black, Biscotti, Caramel and Ivory.
If your dress is figure hugging or silky, Smoothie Strapless will be the best option for you as this number is totally seam free making it virtually invisible under clothing. Best yet, Smoothie is now available to a UK 36K making it one of the only K cup strapless bras on the market.
The ultra-smooth design of our latest strapless bra offers minimum lines and maximum support. The inner side sling keeps the cup rounded and uplifted, whilst the seam free, powernet-lined wings ensure the smoothest of looks all the way around. Concealed, soft plastic boning and silicone strips offer a secure and supported shape from dawn till dusk, slip-free comfort.
Smoothie has an inclusive size range from 28-40” D-J cup, 30-36” D-K and 42-44” DD-G cup.

Low back dresses are another one which many ladies fall in love with but then the realization of ‘how do I support my boobs?’ sets in and sometimes this can be after the dress is purchased! The best advice we have for low back dresses and big boobs is to either embrace the braless look and ensure your dress is tailored to perfection or opt for our Superplunge Multi-way bra!
Superplunge Multi-way really does turn outfit goals into reality thanks to the low plunging centre front, versatility of the strapless positions and low back extender which lowers your back band up to two inches without compromising on support to a J cup!
This bra is lightly padded and seamed for shape and structure, for a complete braless look – you can switch up the strap positions to wide so that they sit closer to the armpit and truly bring sexy BACK! This bra must be taken to dress fittings if a low back dress us on your radar, our Bra Whisperers top tip is to wear the Superplunge Multiway with some higher waisted knickers so that you can tuck the bra back extender into the knicker line to reduce show through.
The classic plunge neckline is one of the most flattering options for your wedding day or as a wedding guest. Wedding dress material is very structured and can be quite thick and so our Bra Whisperer recommends that you opt for a moulded t-shirt plunge shape to keep the structure of the bra when the dress is on and offer definition to your bust.
The best option is our Smoothie Plunge bra, this seam free wonder offers great shape and plunge perfect for lower cut outfits, for extra support or even more cleavage, you can change the strap position into a racer back thanks to the J hook. The construction features side bones to sculpt your body whilst generating comfort, without compromising on style for 360-degree support and shape.
The Smoothie Plunge bra is available in black and latte, along with a size range of 30-40” D-J cup.
