Meet the Designer – Katherine Hamilton

Katherine Hamilton is a luxury British lingerie brand that specialises in larger cups and smaller bands in 54 sizes, ranging from 26-38, D-HH. Combining luxury materials, from silks to French lace, Katherine Hamilton’s pieces are designed with superior technical fit and comfort in mind.

Bringing “luxury” to the fuller bust market, whilst wanting to ensure a superior fit and comfort, comes from years of research and development, allowing the brand to create itself a reputation of “lift and projection with a rounded silhouette”.


As a fit-focused brand, Katherine Hamilton understands the need for a firm bra band for sufficient support, particularly for those with a fuller bust, and so uniquely offers 26 bands as standard to ensure that those with a smaller frame can obtain proper support, regardless of bust size.

Katherine Payne is the creative force behind the brand. Inspired by her own experience of wearing larger cup and smaller band bras, Katherine wanted to ensure that her designs not only look beautiful and elegant but also offer a great shape and feel comfortable enough that they can be worn all day, every day.

Described as feeling ‘custom made’, her bras have been developed around real women to make sure they are contoured perfectly for underwire comfort. Katherine’s love of timeless design and vintage style is evident in her use of delicate French floral lace and traditional cuts whilst her philosophy that lingerie is to empower.

Confidence, sophistication and elegance remain at the heart of the brands core values.

“Most fuller-bust brands use underwires adapted from smaller sizes, simply making them wider and deeper. However breasts don’t get wider, but instead fuller (otherwise they would grow around our sides!). Wider wires therefore do not fit well on smaller frames, causing underarm discomfort and this also creates an unflattering shape by moving the breasts to the sides. Our narrow underwires are developed for real women; replicating how breasts actually grow to create forward projection, lift and underarm comfort.”
