Is busty sizing for me?

When Kindred Bravely’s co-founder Deeanne Akerson started designing the French Terry Bra, which she calls her breastfeeding BFF, comfort and softness were foremost in her mind. Within days of the bra’s launch, pregnant and nursing women began telling us how much they loved the fabric and feel of the bra. We also heard from moms who wanted a little extra room in the cups. “I can’t believe how much my breast size has changed from pregnancy and nursing,” one mom wrote. “I’m much bustier now than I ever was before!” We worked quickly to adapt our design, and Kindred Bravely’s first Busty bra was born.

busty sizing, differences between kindred bravely busty sizes and regular

At Kindred Bravely, we currently have two main categories of wireless bras: light-support/sleep bras and moderate-support/everyday bras. Light-support/sleep bras, also called lounge bras, are perfect to wear around the house or overnight – many women wear them all day and night. These bras include our French Terry Racerback and Organic Cotton Crossover Bras.

There are three main differences between regular and Busty sizes in these styles: the chest band, the straps, and the cups. Busty sizes feature elastic inside the regular chest band for additional support of heavier breasts (80% of the support in a bra comes from the chest band!). The Busty sizes also have slightly longer straps. Additionally, the cup volume is greater to allow for ample coverage of the breasts.

The Busty sizes of the Simply Sublime Bra, one of our moderate-support bras, are different from the regular sizes in three ways: the fabric, the straps, and the cups. The Busty fabric is a tighter knit to provide added support for larger breasts. The straps are a bit wider to help distribute the weight of the breasts, and the cups are designed to accommodate larger sizes (ranging from 30F to 42I). There’s also a Busty version of our ever-popular Simply Sublime Nursing Tank, which features the same design modifications in a supportive tank top style. And now Busty moms can find the perfect fit in our Sublime double pumping bra, which allows you to pump, nurse, or both at the same time – no wardrobe changes necessary!

Busty sizes are great for mamas who are a DD/E or above. Sizing for each bra varies slightly, so check each product’s size chart before ordering to be sure you get the right fit. Cup size and band size can grow significantly during pregnancy and nursing, so we recommend measuring before you order (many women are wearing an ill-fitting bra without realizing it). Check your measurements on our fit quiz or with our Customer Care Team prior to ordering.

Some women whose cup size falls into our regular sizing prefer the slightly longer straps in the Busty sizes of the French Terry and Organic Cotton Bras. This is particularly true for those who are on the taller side (5’6” and above) or those who have a greater distance from the top of their shoulder to their underbust. If you frequently extend your bra straps to their longest length, you might want a Busty size for the additional strap length.

Comfort Is Queen!

We know that one size doesn’t fit all, especially when it comes to bras, and we know how essential it is to have a comfortable bra during the pregnancy and breastfeeding journeys. Our Busty sizes have been designed with supreme comfort and support in mind. The enhancements we’ve made ensure that more women can find the comfort they deserve through the miraculous experiences of pregnancy and breastfeeding.
