It’s no secret that shopping for the best bra can be a challenge, especially when you have a larger bust. Not only can finding your proper fit and preferred style be tricky, but finding the best bra for large busts that’s supportive, comfortable and available in your cup size can feel practically like its own installment of the Mission Impossible franchise. Luckily, there’s a growing number of lingerie and underwear brands expanding their size offering and introducing buttery soft, stretch-friendly fabrics that provide all the support and won’t have you counting down to the moment you can finally take off your bra at the end of a long day.

How to Find the Best Bras for Large Busts

Susan Moses, celebrity stylist and author of The Art of Dressing Curves, recommends a capsule collection of bras for all your wardrobe needs. “For your T-shirts, fitted tops and blouses made in thin fabrics, you’ll need a full-coverage seamless bra with a plunging neckline,” she says. “When you’re wearing dresses or tops that are strapless, one-shouldered or racerback, you’ll need a bra with convertible straps. If your desire is to reduce your bust for a very fitted blouse or top, the minimizer is designed to decrease your bust by 1.4 inches and more.”

Finding the best bras for large busts can be a struggle. Whether you call it voluptuous, well-endowed, big-chested, or busty, having big boobs can be a blessing and a curse. As someone whose cup size has more than two letters in it, I love the body I’ve been blessed with, but finding a bra that actually works for my heavy boobs is no easy feat. And no, I don’t want to be forced to wear a bra that looks like it was a hand-me-down from my grandma. Thankfully, brands are catching wind that the best bras for big busts can be cute, comfortable, and supportive. And I went on a hunt to track them down.

When it comes to choosing the best bras, there are a few qualities I consider nonnegotiable. For starters, the bra needs to have substantial lift and support. As far as I know, there’s no such thing as a DD bust that’s lightweight. Second, it has to offer proper separation. If I wanted a uni-boob, I’d wear a sports bra every day. Next up, coverage. I want clean, smooth lines, minus the bulge. And finally, the bra has to be attractive. Just because I have a large bust doesn’t mean I care less about aesthetic.
