While the search for the perfect bra is never a fun or easy task, we’d be remiss not to mention the particular challenge that comes with finding a bra that offers the proper support for large busts—especially when you’re trying to find an option that won’t gape underneath your silk dresses or button-down blouses. Because ultimately, the last thing you want is for your undergarment to hinder your style. Instead, you want something that’s supportive, well-fitting, and cute to boot; a bra that looks flattering without feeling dreadful to wear.
So, while you’re looking for the one that can do it all, keep an eye out for a range of cup sizes, the silhouette of the bra, and the fit it offers beneath clothing. Thanks to some brands becoming more size-inclusive—including Cosabella, Spanx, and SKIMS—bras for larger busts have received a sexy and sophisticated upgrade. Different fabrics and silhouettes allow you the option to drift away from the traditional nude bra (although there are suitable options for that) towards a lacey bralette or strapless bustier.
Regardless of what type of bra you choose to wear, if your cup size is D or above, know that you have options. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best bras for larger busts that check all the boxes: flattering, comfortable, and truly supportive.
