The Best Basques For Big Busts

The best basques for big busts. How about that for a bit of alliteration! My old English teacher would have been so proud. Seriously though, this is an interesting issue because what is often described as a corset, can be a very useful addition to a curvy clothing wardrobe.

Supportive Basques for Big Busts - Elomi MariaReal women can look great

Sometimes called corsets or bustiers; basques can look undeniably raunchy and do prompt an association with ...er romantic liaisons, that does not always have to be the case.

It can be a great alternative to a strapless bra. Unfortunately there are a lot of very poorly made, flimsy and absurdly small products on the market. 

Such products will potentially look even worse on ladies with a lot up top. So this page is a guide to the best basques for big boobs. Oh and the naughtier ones are at the bottom of the page.

Like all things to do with lingerie for big breasts, I am not going to bother with the brands that do not make genuine large cup products. I appreciate that many brands might go up to a DD or E cup but I am only going to credit the brands that go big.

Supportive Basques for Big Breasts

Generally, they are not cheap, often £60 / $100 which is the price of 2 good large cup bras but (apart from their undeniable raw sex appeal in er.... romantic interludes) their usage as a wonderful alternative to a strapless bra for a large bust, particularly under an evening dress makes them worthwhile for many ladies with a lot up top.

Panache basques for big bustsPanache Serenity
Panache basques for big boobsPanache Evie Bridal

I am genuinely upset to see that Panache appear to have recently discontinued the wonderful and previously long-running Evie Bridal. Thankfully many internet stockists such as Bravissimo, BiggerBras and Simply Be still have stocks so if you are interested I would pick one up while you can.  It's sizes run (UK) 30-38 D - H and it is an ivory colour to complement a bridal ensemble.

The Panache / Masquerade Serenity is technically more of a bustier than a basque. The sizes run 28-38 D-H cups (UK). 

The Serenity features embroidery, delicate top stitching and classic Italian satin for an opulent and lux feel. It is based on the same body shape as the prior favourite Hestia. Actually I think there is a far better picture below. It is not often you get 'normal' womens' photos being better than professional efforts but this is, primarily because the fit appears to be so good.

Below is blogger Becky Connolly in the Serenity. A lovely Mum of one, she writes a good review of this basque for big boobs at Becky's Boudoir.

Bustier For Big Boobs

Whilst a basque does differ technically from a corset, or bustier, for many people the terms are interchangeable so I thought I would term it thus, to hopefully catch the ladies who may be looking for a bustier for big boobs.

Elomi basques for big breastsElomi Maria
Goddess bustier for big bustsGoddess Bustier

The Elomi Maria is arguably the best basque for big boobs in that the size range is so wide. (UK) 32DD-HH, 34-40 D-HH and starting at a D cup, the 42H, 44G, 46F & 48E. It is available in black or cream.

There is also a matching bra, babydoll nightie, briefs or thong. If you want to see what the Maria looks like on a real woman look at the white basque at the top of the page. It is part of an excellent review on the Helen Of Troy Bras blog. This goes into serious detail and is well worth a look.

The Goddess bustier does not have detatchable suspender attachments and sits just above the hips, whereas a normal basque usually sits on the hips. It is available in black, white or ivory. The size range is a very respectable (US) 34-50 B-FF.

Basques For Big Boobs

Isabella Bustiers for Big BoobsFantasie Isabella

The Susanna by Fantasie is thankfully a stalwart of the basques for big busts market. Whilst other Fantasie models such as the Fantasie Ivana, Mae and Bridget have all come and gone, the Susanna lives on.

It has a dark lace overlay, with floral detailing, over a petal (beige) base. This style is also available as a bra, suspender / garter belt, shorts, thong or briefs. The sizes run (UK) 30-38 D-GG. Above it is the Antique Gold colour but Fantasie also do this in (pink) Petal. 

The Isabella Shadow strapless basque is more of a bustier for big boobs and a relatively new introduction. It is black lace on a white base so it has a grey hue. (UK) 30-38D-G. It is part of a collection that includes briefs, thong, suspender belt and bras so you can mix and match.

I am not sure about the sizing, especially as these often come from the Far East so you may have to order bigger than they recommend but they are very reasonably priced.

There are also plenty of colours to choose from. With things like this I would recommend taking your time to read the Q & A section as well as the customer comments.

Okay, for the naughtier or more daring amongst you I thought I would look at some racier designs on Amazon.

Even if you would not dare to wear them, you have to admit that they are stunning. If you look back to the corsetry they wore in the 50's you will see that they were utterly functional.There was almost no attempt to be attractive.

I am not sure if you could say this is as much a bustier for big boobs as some of the examples above made by the big bust lingeries specialists but it does go up to 40 inch bust. However the black faux leather, buckles, zipper front and cris cross ribbon laces at the back are certainly eye catching.

Corsets for big boobs

Now I have never tried this one and once again I would suggest the quality will not be anywhere near the quality of the specialist curvy clothing manufacturers above.

But, it is only around $20 and it does apparently go up to a 44-46 inch bust. That surely means this is at least worth a look. I also like the fact that the ribbon fastening at the bust level should give a little more lattitude for serious boobage.


Did you like this page, did you learn something, maybe it reinforced you own views? I want to give as much (hopefully helpful) advice to the busty sisterhood as I can.

Please remember, we are all different. You may like to wear certain clothes and styles which I am suggesting that you should not. That is your absolute right. Do what makes you feel good. This site undeniably goes for the more modest approach because I feel all busty ladies already know how to be more racy if they wish.

It would really help me improve the site profile if you would click the Facebook 'Like' button. Pretty please! Susan

Bustiers for big bustsLess than $20

They may look sexy but most only cater for modest boob sizes which makes looking in the 'normal' retail outlets somewhat frustrating and pointless.

However, the good news is that there are basques for big busts out there if you know where to look. The one above which is sold on Amazon seems to be ok up to a (US) DDD cup but I am not sure if it is suitable for larger cup sizes.

What is a Basque?

Well it is essentially what your grandmother may have called a long corset. It is a close fitting bodice which traditionally extends down below the hips and flares out.

Normally there is a long vertical row of hook and eye fastenings down the back, which are a bit of a hassle to fasten, but once done are often surprisingly comfortable and very supportive.

Of course it is also a person who originates from the Basque region. An area of mountainous land in the Pyrenees between Spain and France. 

In fact this lingerie term has a French derivation and is based on that region's traditional dress.

Detatchable Suspenders

what is a bustier

Almost all basques come with detatchable suspenders / garters so are designed to be worn with stockings.

This is because they date back to pre tights / pantyhose days when this was your only choice.

Of course they are now made detatchable so it gives you flexibility as to what you wear beneath.

By the way. We Brits call what Americans term suspenders, braces. As famously worn by Michael Douglas in the movie, Wall Street.

A Different Perspective

Sometimes it is good to look at things from a different perspective. It is very useful to understand what they look like from behind too.

The Elila has a healthy size range, from (UK) 34-46B-H.

Technically this should not really be in a review of the best basques for big busts as it is a strapless longline bra. That just goes to show how boundaries merge as it is for all intents a bustier for big boobs. However you could easily class it as a corset or basque.
