I have heard a lot of women with large breasts complaining that they often have trouble trying to find bras that fit them properly. Other women complain about not having enough variety to choose from. They might be able to find plus size bras at a few local retailers, but more often than not their choices are limited. As a result, they end up buying bras which they don’t particularly like, or bras which are downright uncomfortable.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could find a retailer that stocks an almost endless variety of plus size bras? If your answer is yes, then Big Girls Bras might be the sort of place you have been looking for. Read on to find out everything you need to know from this BiggerBras review.
Big Girls Bras – A Brief Description
Big Girls Bras was originally founded in 1998 by Elenor Cole from Dallas, Texas. Recognizing the fact that full bodied women were routinely struggling to find decent plus size intimate clothing, Elenor was on a mission to change that. She believed that all women should have easy access to flattering intimate clothing that actually fits them properly.
Big Girls Bras was one of the first internet based lingerie stores, and the very first such store to focus on intimate wear for full bodied women. So, what all is available on the BiggerBras website? Let’s take a quick look:
While the Company might be called Big Girls Bras, it should be mentioned that this name was chosen in order to emphasize the fact that they cater to full bodied women. However, they do also carry smaller sizes as well.
Okay, let us take a look at the “good” and the “not so good” things about this Company. Hopefully, by the time you get to the bottom of the page, you will have enough information to decide whether or not you want to shop on the Big Girls Bras website.
- Big sizes – The availability of plus sizes in so many different styles and designs is without a doubt the most notable benefit.
- Price and quality – Great prices and great quality.
- Convenience – Can shop from the comfort of your living room.
- Reputation – Been in business for 17 years and still going strong.
I have trawled through an almost endless number of reviews, and during this time it became undeniably apparent that Big Girls Bras have a lot of extremely happy customers.
- Intimate clothing for all – Whether you have big hips; big breasts or both, you can find a huge selection of intimate clothing which will fit you perfectly. Full bodied women no longer have to buy underwear just because it fits them; they can instead buy underwear that also makes them feel good about themselves.
- Massive selection – From conservative to provocative, you can find it all on one site. Big Girls Bras offer a huge selection of different styles and designs to suit all tastes and sizes.
- Easy to find the perfect size – The site has a number of tools built-in that you can use in order to avoid accidentally buying the wrong size. Even though I have trawled through countless reviews, I was only able to find a few isolated cases where customers complained about size issues. In my opinion, the company has done everything they could possibly do in order to help avoid buying the wrong size.
- Easy site navigation – Biggerbras is a very well designed site, and one which is very easy to navigate around. In fact, a person arriving on the site can find the perfect bra by doing just three searches. It really cannot get any easier than that.
- Can place an order over the phone – If you would rather not place your order online via the site, you can just give them a call instead. An experienced company representative will be on the other end to take your order and answer any questions you might have.
- Free shipping – Customers living in the United States (48 States) can often benefit from free shipping, although it should be noted that you will need to use a coupon which is typically available on the site. Additionally, this offer is only available for orders of $60 or more.
- Good “returns” policy – Most online distributors have a “returns” policy in place, but as many people have discovered, not all such policies are the same. When you order from Big Girls Bras, you have 60 days in which to return any goods you are not happy with. The company generally allows the customer to decide it they want an exchange; store credit, or a refund. There are certain conditions as is to be expected, but these are clearly posted on the site, and can be viewed by clicking on the “shipping” tab.
- Good customer service – Help is always close by and customers can choose between postal mail; email, and phone support.
While most customers have quite clearly been happy with their purchases and their dealings with Big Girls Bras, there are also customers who have not been happy. Since this is intended to be an honest and unbiased review, I think it is only fair for me to also represent the unhappy customers. Here are the most common complaints I have come across, along with some of my own thoughts:
- No guarantee that you will get the right size – A number of customers have complained about receiving items of clothing which never fitted properly. In all fairness though, I don’t think any online clothing distributor can guarantee a perfect fit on every occasion.
- Hit and miss customer service – I have read a number of reports where the authors have been very critical of their customer service experience. Many have complained about having to exchange countless emails before eventually securing an acceptable outcome.
- Confusing refund policy – Some customers have felt that they were misled by the Company’s refunds policy. Most of these cases involve customers who received store credit instead of a cash refund after returning goods. Although the terms and conditions are available on the site, I personally feel the company could simplify them, making it easier for the average customer to understand exactly what to expect if something goes wrong.
All prices are listed in US$ and vary from one product to the next. Big Girls Bras is not a wholesale business or a budget type distributor, and their prices certainly reflect this. With that having been said, their prices are generally seen as being very reasonable, particularly when you take the quality of their garments into consideration.
Big Girls Bras welcomes customers from all around the world. However, international customers should note that all communications are in English. Additionally, international customers should be aware that the Company is not responsible for custom charges, should any be incurred.
