There are now plenty of nice DD+ bras available thanks to forward-thinking from brands like Panache, Curvy Kate, Freya, Fantasie and La Senza.

But finding 'lingerie solutions' in larger sizes can prove tricky, as it's more difficult to engineer things like plunge, strapless and backless for larger sizes. A good multiway bra is a wardrobe essential; though a strapless bra is brilliant, if you have a larger bust you will probably benefit from straps whenever possible for a bit of extra support and shaping. Something that'll work with halter or crossover / racer backs opens up far more party dress options this festive season!

The Panache 'Zara' ticks all the boxes - it's comfy, it's got a deep plunge so it works with low-cut items (a rare find in the DD+ world) and it comes in loads of colours. With a bit of light padding for support and shape, it'll give you killer cleavage too. It's currently £20 at Figleaves in classic black. Buy two, you won't regret the spare!
