A plus size cami with bra is a versatile staple for any woman's lingerie drawer.
Wearing Your Plus Size Bra Cami
A cami with a built-in bra is a great addition to any intimate apparel wardrobe. They can be worn in many different ways and with many different items in your closet. A cami may not be the most supportive full-figure type of bra but it serves its purpose well and goes great when worn in ways such as:
- Under a jacket or shirt as an added layer
- As shapewear
- For fitness
- For sleeping
Some camisoles have underwire bras built in that would provide more support than a built-in shelf bra. Other styles may have lace or similar decorative accents. Some may be worn solely as shapewear and provide a smooth foundation under your clothing. Depending on your specific need, look for a style that will be comfortable and provide you with as much support as you may need.
