The Best Plus Size Camisoles and Tanks
If you have a love-hate relationship with your plus-size bra, it’s probably time to break up with it. Women of all sizes deserve first layers that fit invisibly around their curves — and not ones that pinch them or dig in.
At Uwila Warrior, we pay attention to the details and create bra alternatives that work for everyone, because women with small, medium, or large breasts deserve to have it all. If you’re looking for a plus size camisole or a plus size wireless bra, we’ve found your perfect match.
No Underwire = Comfort
At Uwila Warrior, we skip traditional bra components in our bras. We don’t use underwire, molded cups, or painful hook-and-eye closures. Instead we use soft materials that are more comfortable, but still provide the support needed for larger cup sizes and plus size bodies.
During our initial development of each product, we fit the style on a US size 18 model, as well as our size 4 model, to ensure that the fit for our plus size customer is just as comfortable as it is for others. Here are a few wireless options that come out of this process:
A Ribbed Tank: The Braless tank is made of an ultra-lightweight ribbed cotton blend. It has no underwire, no itchy tags, and no uncomfortable underband. Yet it still hugs your breasts to create enough support to be worn as a bra. You can also wear it on its own as a crop top, under clothes, or to sleep.
A Bralette: A bralette is an underwire-free, less constrictive replacement for a traditional bra. Our Soft Bra bralette has all these qualities and offers moderate support. It molds and moves with the body, enhancing your natural form.
Since the camisole is meant to be a hybrid piece, used either for layering or as a top, we make the fit body-skimming, meaning it’s neither form fitting or loose. “For the camisole, we engineer the fit to offer optimal length and circumference to accommodate a larger bust and belly,” explains Samantha Benassai, Uwila Warrior’s Product Development manager. The same goes for our Happy Seams Camisole.
How to Find the Right Size
With our Fit Guide you can ensure your plus-size bra fits. To get the correct band size, wrap a soft tape measure around your torso directly under your bust. Keep the tape parallel to the ground and snug. For your bust, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Finally, to calculate your bra size, subtract your band size from your bust size. Based on the result, you can get your cup size. (For example: <1 inch is AA. 1 inch is A. 2 inches is B. 3 inches is C. 4 inches is D. 5 inches is DD/E.)
You can compare your band and cup measurement to our handy sizing chart. If you have a large band size, size up. The Braless ribbed tank also tends to run small, so size up there, while the camisoles are true to size. If you have a larger cup size, you also might consider sizing up in the camisole as well. The adjustable straps make it super easy to adjust the fit around the arms if you do size up.
Not sure what to get? Try two! With our Perfect Fit Promise, you can return the one that doesn’t work.
Wearing a Wireless Bra When You Have Big Boobs
When shopping for a plus size wireless bra, it’s important to be conscious of your expectations. “The Braless style is not going to provide the same amount of lift or support that a traditional wired bra will provide,” Samantha notes.
Our wireless bras and tanks will provide a soft feeling of containment for larger busts, making it great for sleeping, lounging or layering, but not necessarily for leaving the house in certain outfits if you are accustomed to more lift and shaping.
As for the camisole, keep in mind that the straps are adjustable, so you will be able to control how revealing the front neckline is for you.
