Most comfortable bra for large bust

Shopping for bras can be exhausting, regardless of whether you’re browsing in-store or online. It’s hard to know where to start, what to look for, and even what your true size is. Frankly, there’s something about the process that transports us back in time to uncomfortable mother-daughter outings. Cue flashbacks to being 13 and shedding a single tear, because mom, why is this so complicated?! That is precisely the kind of bra buying experience we want to help you avoid. To do so, we tapped three experts for their professional advice on how to find the right bra for you.

Most comfortable bra for large bust

“For so long we’ve been taught to think our boobs were the problem, when all along it’s really been bad bras,” says Ra’el Cohen, co-founder and chief creative officer of ThirdLove. “Every person will have their own unique criteria for what makes a bra fantastic, but it ultimately comes down to looking and feeling your best.” Preach.

“A customer with a larger chest should never have to choose function over style,” adds Tracy Freno, senior manager of customer service at Bare Necessities. “Breast shapes and sizing can differ from woman to woman, so even among women who fall under the ‘big bust’ category, a certain style of bra might prove to be more comfortable and supportive to one woman’s shape as opposed to another.” With that in mind, Cohen and Freno both suggest being patient with yourself and the process and keeping your options—and mind—open. “What works best for someone will depend on their unique breast shape, size and needs…take the time to consider which style fits you, your life, and your style the best,” Cohen says.

At the end of the day, though, “the best bras for large busts are both stylish and comfy, while also offering great support,” adds Dionne Thompson, director of design, intimates/innovation at Torrid.

Below are 22 of the best bras for big boobs in different styles for every occasion. Think: strapless bras for wearing under your favorite fall wedding guest dresses to sleep bras for cozying up in bed or hunkering down for a Netflix binge. This list goes out to the bustier types—with minimizer bras also included (though we have other recommendations for small-chested folks, too). This is not an all-encompassing list, but we covered our bases with brands that cater to both full-busted (i.e. smaller band size with larger cup size) and full-figured (larger band and cup sizes) shoppers. May the bras be ever in your favor.

Full Coverage Underwire Unlined Minimizer Lace Bra

With over 22k reviews and a four-star rating, this inexpensive option from Delimira supports you and looks good while doing it. One ELLE writer personally bought this bra and instantly noted the subtle underwiring and breathability.

What people are saying: “I am in love with this bra, I swear I’ve never known my actual bra size until I put this on. I’ve never had a bra fit me this well.”

Comfort Fit Seamless Minimizer Bra

The seamless design of this minimizing bra is the ultimate choice for full coverage and a molded look, with sizes ranging from 30A to 44H. The nylon and spandex band works with the polyester cup to minimize the chest size without compressing the body.

What people are saying: “I’ve been wearing this bra for about two years now. It’s probably the first bra that has provided uplift and support for my DDD size without hauling up the straps so tight they put grooves in my shoulders.”

Angie Front Close Minimizer Bra

Made with padded wide straps and a back panel of leotard mesh, this front-close bra comes in sizes ranging from a 32C to 44H. It’s also a minimizer for buttoned-up days or times you want the illusion of a slightly smaller chest.

What people are saying: “This one fits beautifully and is comfortable. It covers my breasts, and when I bend over and shake, I don’t fall out of it. This is the first time in years I’ve been able to wear a front-close bra, and I’m loving that! It also greatly reduces the visible size of my bust, which is what I am always looking for.”

Brooklyn Leopard Lace Side Support Bra

This bra, which comes in sizes ranging from a 34E to 46L, has a four-row hook closure and thick bands to support your sides and avoid spillage. Longtime users of this bra are a fan of its construction.

What people are saying: “It provides full coverage and reliable support. The sizing is spot-on and cup construction ensures minimal movement. The back material is generous, which prevents that annoying ride-up that many bras have.”

Retro Chic Full Figure Underwire Bra

This retro-inspired bra, available in sizes 32D through 46H, keeps your boobs in place with a stylish lace design that doesn’t sacrifice sex appeal. Keep in mind that although this is an underwire style, it lacks padding to give a more natural look and fit.
