1. Underwire bras

  • One of the most comfortable fits for women with larger breasts.
  • The cups lift and center the breasts, thus covering a large part of the chest.
  • The straps are slightly closer together on this model, to prevent them from slipping.
  • Underwire bras give your breasts extra support, creating a sleek, feminine silhouette under any outfit.

2. Door shelves

  • They lift your breasts and the cups are more indented, so that they reveal a little more of your breasts.
  • The horizontal neckline of the cups is very pretty under tops and dresses with plunging necklines and round necks.
  • The centered position of the shoulder straps prevents them from slipping.
  • PrimaDonna always reinforces the cups with foam or firm tulle for extra support.

3. Invisible bras

  • Completely smooth and seamless finish, to be invisible under a slightly tighter outfit. That's why you'll find them in many neutral colors that won't show under your clothes.
  • The cups are always lined, for example with a light foam or a breathable 3D spacer fabric – and completely opaque.
  • At PrimaDonna Twist, we often add a trendy touch to them, for example with an original print, trendy colors or straps that can be revealed under a top or a light dress.

  • A "deep plunge" bra, or a plunging neckline, displays very low-cut cups and creates a superb curve.
  • Very seductive and feminine under a blouse or a top with a more plunging neckline.
  • With sturdy fabrics and ingenious construction, PrimaDonna ensures that their models always lift your chest well.

7. Strapless or bandeau bras

  • An essential under a dress or a sleeveless top: these bras do not require straps and still offer your breasts the necessary support.
  • If you have a larger chest, choose a quality bandeau that will firmly hold your chest.
  • PrimaDonna's strapless bras feature sturdy foam cups and a strong elastic band in the back, to provide excellent support up to a G cup.

8. Sports bras

  • A sports bra is essential for exercising, if you want to avoid aches and pains caused by bumps, especially with large breasts.
  • Firm cups (with or without underwire and foam) encapsulate your breasts optimally. They prevent your breasts from moving too much, which saves you pain and discomfort.
  • Made from soft, breathable fabrics that don't chafe during exercise, which dry quickly and wick away sweat.
