Whether you’re petite or plus size, picking the best fitting bra for your body type is essential to keep you supported, look your best, and stay comfortable all day.
Vanity Fair® was the first intimate apparel company to introduce Full Coverage bras to the consumer. Before that, there were two size genres in bras, Average and Full Figure. Average bras were designed for a leaner consumer, while Full Figure bras were designed for the fuller busted consumer providing the most coverage and the highest level of support, this remains true today. With the addition of Full Coverage, Vanity Fair® has designed for the Average figure consumer who prefers more coverage but less than a Full Figure bra. No matter what your size, choosing the right coverage level is an important factor when choosing your best fitting bra.
Full Coverage Bras
Our full coverage bras feature straps that are wider and more supportive than those found on an Average bra, yet narrower than the straps found on our Full Figure bras. Full Coverage bras are also designed with more coverage in the cups to fully contain breast tissue and prevent breasts from spilling out of the cups along the neckline and underarm. Additionally, Full Coverage bras have slightly wider sides to provide the perfect amount of smoothing and support for all-day comfort and a seamless look under clothing.
Full Figure Bras
Our full figure bras feature straps that are slightly wider than our Full Coverage bras, providing no-slip comfort that is just right for our fuller busted consumers. Additionally, our Full Figure bras feature full capacity/coverage cups and wider sides for a fully supported, beautifully smooth look under clothing. These bras are also a great plus size bra option.
How to pick the best fitting bra for you
It’s not always easy to find the perfect bra, but when you do it’s a match made in heaven. Once you find your size, you may still face the question of average figure, full coverage or full figure. Full figure bras are perfect for women with curves that want a little extra coverage and support. Full coverage bras are ideal if you want a little less bra without sacrificing support. We know that shopping for a bra online is tough, so we created a helpful resource to assist you on your search. If you need help finding the right size for you just complete our Fit Guide.
