Best strapless bra for large bust

Finding the right strapless bra can be a real challenge, particularly for women with larger busts. And although this isn’t something that will be part of your daily lingerie rotation, it is a wardrobe must-have for when you want to flaunt those halter blouses and strappy summer dresses.

The first hurdle is to find the right size. According to Priya Downes, CEO of B-Corp Certified lingerie brand Nudea, 80 per cent of women are currently wearing the wrong size, the main driver of this is not being fitted often enough.

Best strapless bra for large bust

Have you ever had a strapless bra that slid down or didn’t hold you up? If the answer is yes don’t worry, you’re not alone. 

A strapless bras are an essential part of every woman’s wardrobe. This isn’t something that you should just buy on a whim.

We’ll cover what you should look for when buying a strapless bra so that you never have to worry about it slipping down again.

Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Lightly Lined Multi-Way Bra

The first thing we noticed about this bra is the extra soft Memory Fit padding on the cups. It’s that added layer of softness that makes all the difference in the way it fits and feels. Unlike some new bras, this doesn’t dig into your skin and we did not struggle to do it up either thanks to the stretchy lace sides.
We wore this bra as a strapless piece but also as a cross back and it worked perfectly as both. If you’re looking for good coverage and a comfortable all day bra, then this ticks all the boxes.
Sizes range from 30 to 38DDD and it comes in black, white and a lovely evening blush shade.

Heist The Satin Bra

If retro-glam is your thing then look no further than this luxurious balconette bra by Heist. Made from recycled plastic bottles, this Italian satin number is sexy, sultry, sustainable and ticks so many boxes. It’s breathable, has a lovely feel on the skin and comes with detachable straps. This non-padded bra has an underwire and a centre-front U-wire for added support.
Sizes range from extra small to extra large, which can be tricky if you’re looking for something that fits like a glove. We tried the large based on the Heist size chart and it was slightly loose around the top and the U-wire did not sit right. Having said that, we would happily wear this bra all day every day just because of the sumptuous fabric.

Wacoal Halo Lace strapless bra

Wacoal has a large selection of strapless bras to suit various sizes and body shapes. Halo Lace is, as it says on the tin, a lace bra in a bandeau style with underwires, gripper elastic and detachable straps. This bra style is perfect for those conscious of spillage or like full coverage. We tried it for a few hours under a t-shirt and we forgot we were even wearing it. It doesn’t have padding so may not work under a tight outfit but you could wear it under anything floaty and most evening wear.
We also tried the Red Carpet strapless bra by the same brand and it was much curvier and provided the bust with more support and lift. The thin padding gives it a smooth and rounded shape on the outside, while the anti-slip silicone strip keeps the bra intact. We thought the bra gave decent coverage and stayed up after our jumping test. We also wore this with straps for an entire day and would recommend it highly. Both bras come in nude and black colours.

Wonderbra Ultimate Silhouette Plunge Bra

This is the bra for those outfits that don’t allow for a bra. The Wonderbra Ultimate Silhouette Plunge Bra is strapless, low-backed, and extremely low-fronted making it versatile to fit any outfit that’s proving tricky.
Plunging at the cleavage, the main draw is this bra’s ability to be worn invisibly with the lowest of low-cut tops. This does mean the bra sits low on your ribs which isn’t the most comfortable, but it does its job there well. Smooth and seamless, it creates clean lines and offers impressive support alongside Wonderbra’s signature cleavage enhancement.

Triumph Amourette charm

This wired, non-padded strapless bra is pretty as a picture and light as a feather. The delicate barely-visible lace offers full coverage around the chest, while the underwire provides the perfect support. It also comes with multi-way straps giving you the freedom to turn it into whatever you want it to be. There are three hook-and-eye fastenings at the back and there are five different colour options.
The best thing about this bra is the 3D Flexi side bones which mould according to your body type, so no more pressure marks or irritation. We loved this bra for its versatility – and pretty looks (who doesn’t love a bit of lace?).
