Just because one is full figured doesn’t mean one has to be dowdy.
I’ve been a full figured girl ever since I came out of my mother’s womb – I was just destined to be larger than life in many ways. But, just because I’m full figured doesn’t mean that I don’t like pretty lingerie like Prima Donna bras. You won’t find these beautiful bras at Walmart, Target, or Kohl’s department stores. I was introduced to Prima Donna bras at Sylene’s, one of DCs premier lingerie stores for every size woman.
Prima Donna bras don’t come cheap but they’re worth every penny if you ask me. With good care, a Prima Donna bra will last for at least 3 years – much longer than cheaper bras. And, Prima Donna make one feel like, well, a prima donna – just like I am! And, most Prima Donna bras go all the way up to cup size H so there should be a bra to fit everybody.
I own 5 different Prima Donna bras for the full figured woman and stand by their quality. Come along and find out what makes these bras a cut above the breast (sorry, couldn’t refuse…).
My favorite Prima Donna bra

Some ways to make your Prima Donna bras last longer
- Only wear each PrimaDonna bra for 2 days in a row. The elastic in bras has a “memory” so wearing the same bra more than 2 days in a row won’t allow the elastic to snap back to where it should be. Rotate your Prima Donna bras, and you’ll be wearing them for many years.
- Hand wash your bras in cold water only. Now, this is a good theory, but I am not a hand washer! I wash my PrimaDonna bras in my front loading washing machine on a cold delicate cycle.
- Never place a bra in the dryer!. This goes for any bra, not just your expensive Prima Donna bras. Bras will last a significant amount of time if you never heat dry them. in fact, they should be dried lying flat, not hanging from a strap (this can stretch the strap elastic and ruin a good bra eventually).
- Buy the correct size bra. Studies show that 7 out of 10 women buy the wrong bra size. I suggest going into a good lingerie shop once every two years to get a professional bra fitting. Wearing a bra that is too small will not only be uncomfortable but will stretch the bra out in no time.
Prima Donna satin style bras
The Prima Donna Madison Underwire Bra
I have two of these Madison Underwire Bras in different colors and styles – one is cut down lower so that i can wear it with a deeper v-neck and the other is more of a full coverage which is perfect underneath a sweater. Both are equally comfortable and can be worn for without any discomfort for many hours. The Prima Donna Madison bra comes in a soft cup as well as underwire.
Prima Donna panties
The PrimaDonna Menton Full Cup Underwire Bra
This is another of my Prima Donna go-to bras. I love that the straps have a little bit of flair to them so I don’t really mind if they show under a skinny strapped top. I have both the full coverage and the plunge style of this Prima Donna bra.
The Prima Donna Spacer Bra
This name cracks me up
I’m one of those women who don’t like their puppies in the same crate so this Prima Donna bra lifts and separates – just the way I like them to be (and, they even stay put!). If you’re a fan of deep cleavage though, this is not the bra for you!

The perfect washing implement for a bra with molded cups
I sure do…
I’ve always rued the fact that i was a large woman (period) but it took me about 50 years to accept that being a large woman with large tatas was not the end of the world.
