Making this response public (I hope you don’t mind!) because we are constantly asked this question and I’m considering having the answer engraved on my tombstone.
Just want to start by saying that we would LOVE to make every size range in the world ever, but it’s pretty much impossible to do that when you are a tiny brand like us. It’s not that we don’t want to, or we aren’t considering it, it’s just that we can’t afford the financial risk.
However, we ARE trialling out some larger cup sizes in January. We will be running two bras (one open cup) in sizes 32A-32F, 34A-34F and 36B-36DD (that’s 4 new sizes of 32E, 32F, 34E and 34F) and seeing how those sell for us. These are the bras in question:
If they sell well, we can start rolling these sizes out across the coming ranges (we don’t restock our old collections so this would only happen on new styles). I think we’ve already got a sample size 32F in this bra, which is coming in AW14, so that’s promising!
These larger cup sizes will not just be graded up; they have been redesigned to give you the support you need with a stronger mesh back and thicker straps. We have experience with designing and manufacturing larger cup sizes (and larger back sizes) so we are not just taking the easy route ;) Also we will be shooting these on a 32F model so you can see how they fit a larger cup size.
I hope that answers your question, and keep an eye out for those Lily bras that will arrive in January!
If you are a fuller-busted woman who likes Playful Promises, buy these bras!!! At full price.
Brands use their sales figures to determine if it’s financially feasible for them to expand or continue expanding their size range. If no one buys this bras or if they only sell on clearance, that makes it a lot less likely Playful Promises will attempt to expand to their size range in the future. So use your dollars to show that this is something you want.
It’s give-away time! Do you want this bra, brief and suspender belt?

Thems the rules! A winner will be picked at random at 10am GMT on the 24th.
Get yourself some good lingerie.
I have just been told that this has shipped, so it should be with us on thursday or friday, SO I’ve put it up on the website to buy now!
Also how’s this photo for a “let’s just try this shot while everyone else goes and gets tea and coffee”? It actually ended up being one of my favourites.
Quite often we get some concerning comments on our facebook page, so we thought we’d make a little statement: Lingerie isn’t JUST defined by what men find attractive.
It’s all about what YOU as a woman feel sexy in. You might not even want to wear lace or frills, you might feel amazing wearing simple knickers and there’s nothing wrong with that! Lingerie is not just for the bedroom, and it isn’t just for heterosexual couples. It isn’t dirty and you shouldn’t feel like you need to hide it away.
I feel so sad when I see comments like "I’d love this but I don’t have anyone to wear it for" - but you do, you have yourself to wear it for (and anything that comes from you feeling awesome will just be an extra bonus)!
