Finding the best bras for big boobs can be a struggle. If you’ve got DD cup-sized boobs or larger, you’ll know that – despite the many benefits of being blessed on the chest – there are a whole load struggles to be faced. Namely: that dreaded back ache and finding a bra that *doesn’t* look like something your grandma would wear. UGH.
While it’s easy to get jealous of your flat-chested friends as they effortlessly slip into those skimpy, triangle wireless bras with little need for support (although you can also rock these, too, FYI), there are some seriously stylish bras for big boobs on the market, if only you know where to look. Your options are broader than you might first think.
Forget what you thought you already knew: bras for larger busts aren’t all frumpy and high-coverage. Instead, comfort and lift are now synonymous with style and sex-appeal, allowing you to feel the most confident version of yourself while still receiving support.
Need proof? Rihanna’s lingerie range Savage X Fenty has shaken up the underwear industry, promoting sexy yet comfortable underwear for all shapes and sizes. Let’s be honest: you can be sure anything Rihanna puts her name to will have inclusivity at its heart (case in point: the truly inclusive shade range in her Fenty Beauty makeup line), and Savage X Fenty is no exception. Not only do the pieces retail at an affordable price point, but they have sizes up to 42H, too. Their shimmer lace floral racerback bralette – one of our picks of the best bras for big boobs below – proves that bralettes can be supportive enough for D-cupped girls, thanks to its elasticated halterneck straps, supportive racerback and longline band.
Outside of Fenty land, there are plenty of other retailers championing women with big boobs, and working to release styles that look as great as the job they do. Take Figleaves, for example. Stocking brands including Panache and Pour Moi? alongside their own-brand designs, their high-quality lingerie is designed by women for A-K cups. There’s also Organic Basics who rules the roost when it comes to bras for big boobs that you can wear as you work from home (their Tencel Soft Touch Bralette has been ethically made, is soft, breathable and has a chunky band for added support and lift).
The best brands for bras for big boobs:
- Make sure you get fitted! No bra will fit correctly – or feel comfortable – if you buy it in the wrong size.
- Look out for wider straps that will help you feel lifted.
- Look out for a wider band than you might find on smaller-cupped bras, because that will also contribute to increased support.
- Consider underwired bras if it’s definition you’re after.
So, without further ado, here are the best bras for big boobs – as tested by GLAMOUR editors. Happy shopping.
