Best bralettes for big busts



Shopping for clothes can be challenging, no matter who you are or what you're looking for. But if you have a bigger bust, the activity can feel like a real chore—especially where comfortable lingerie is concerned. You might have even ruled out bralettes altogether, deeming them insufficient in the support department. But we're here to tell you that they do exist.

To prove our point, we rounded up the best bralettes for big busts. While underwire bras will always offer serious support, sometimes you just want to be as comfortable as possible. So after combing through pages of customer reviews, we’ve discovered the bralettes anyone with a big bust will want to live in. Scroll down to shop them all below, and be sure to check out why women are raving about them.

"I was hesitant to get a bralette because my size is usually 38H-38I, so I figured I'd get one that wasn't too expensive in a 3X, and if it didn't do much for me, I'd wear a bra under it as a crop top. But this bra supports me so well that I feel comfortable leaving the house in it; it's my new favorite bra. I don't feel naked when I wear it as a bra, and it's so soft and comfy. I love this bralette; it's actually big enough for my chest." — Savage X Fenty reviewer

"It's such a struggle to find a bralette that is meant for big boobs and this one is IT!! I love how soft and comfortable it is too. Currently throwing away all my old bralettes that either had no support or would suffocate me." — Parade reviewer

"These Lace Kiss Bralettes are 'just enough' without being too much. I'm a 34D, and these bralettes hold my breasts comfortably without being overbearing. The lace is very soft and comfortable too. Just as good as braless, only better!" — Nordstrom reviewer

"I may never wear a 'real' bra again. This provides surprising support for a bralette - enough for daily hiking and mountain biking. Cute straps for tank tops, but full coverage enough that it sits nicely under T-shirts and nicer tops. Makes me look a size smaller without constricting. I wondered if it was too expensive for a basic bralette, but this bra is magic." — Knix reviewer

"I love that I can feel supported AND sexy in a bra made for my larger bust! The fabric is so lovely and feels like a second skin."— Parade reviewer

"I never thought I could wear a wireless bra, and historically it's been slim pickings for those who need smaller bands and larger cups. This bra is really a game-changer in that it keeps the girls in place and looking natural without an underwire digging into me. I prefer to not have molded cups, so I like this style." — Bare Necessities reviewer

"I have four of these bras. I first bought them for casual weekend wear thinking there wouldn't be enough support. It took zero time for me to get used to no underwire, and now I wear them to work every day. Plenty of support for me (36C), and very comfy. Pretty, too!" — Macy's reviewer

"I wear a DD and am sick of underwire. I have tried several different non-underwire bras, and this one is the best. I also love that it is not super expensive." — Bare Necessities reviewer

"Lightweight and comfortable. Had to try a couple sizes to get the right fit. 5'10", 200 pounds, 40C, and I had to go with 2X." — Amazon reviewer

"To start off, this is the softest material I've ever had on a bra. I've never been able to wear a bra that's so soft and comfortable all day. I wear a 42DD, and it's so hard to find a bra that I don't want to take off as soon as I get home. If you're looking for something that'll make you forget you're even wearing a bra, I suggest this one a thousand times!" — Amazon reviewer

"I'm a 32DD and went with a S/M, and it's stretchy enough to accommodate my larger chest. I'll definitely be ordering more." — Eberjey reviewer

"I wear this almost every day. If I had the option, I would never take it off. The cotton is so soft you forget you're wearing it. There isn't much support, but it also doesn't create a 'uniboob' either. It's nice, subtle support, and it doesn't crush my 32D bust." — Everlane reviewer

"I usually wear 32C and ordered S for this one. It fits me well and looks pretty." — Shopbop reviewer

"These bras are my new favorite!!! They're comfortable, lightly padded, and pretty!!! I'm a 34D, and I find them very supportive, considering they're a bralette. I've tried other brands, and these are by far the best. I highly recommend trying them." — Free People reviewer

"The product is just incredible. Being a plus size woman, I can speak to the support of the bra. It’s not as comfortable as wearing nothing, but it’s definitely the best fit I’ve ever had. Can’t recommend them enough."— Parade reviewer

"At this point, most of the reviews have captured the greatness that is the busty bralette… but I couldn't resist. I'm a 34DD/DDD and have ALWAYS had a difficult time finding bras: Either they're too expensive or just not attractive. The busty bralette is EVERYTHING. It's sexy, comfortable, affordable, and offers good coverage!" — Lively reviewer

"This bra is so comfortable you might feel guilty wearing it. Great for plunging dress options. Great for big busts. It was so comfortable I bought six. It's my go-to bra." — Nordstrom reviewer

"I'm a 34DDD and have worn athletic bras for years all the time with work, dress, and casual wear. Am a size 4 to 6, and 5'2". The straps are perfect; nice fit. Highly recommended." — Macy's reviewer

"I have bought numerous bralettes and had to return them because they don't fit, but these are AMAZING! And also amazing quality! I am a 34E and weigh 143 pounds and I bought a large and I am so happy! If you have big boobs this is the bralette for you!" — Amazon reviewer

"I have been looking for a bralette for a while in a small band, large cup size. There are not many brands that offer wire-free bras in my size: 28F/FF. I read some reviews that said it runs small, so I figured I'd take a chance on it, and I'm so glad I did! The band is cut small, so I would size up one band size. The cups are super stretchy, so it is forgiving if you are between cup sizes." — Amazon reviewer

"This bra is very cute and comfortable. It's hard to find pretty, comfortable bras in a 2XL size." — Parade reviewer 

"This is my favorite bra that I've ever worn. The style is perfect for framing your chest/collarbone area and squares the shoulders off perfectly. It is also very comfortable and works well for long-lasting wear. The front clasp is secure, so you don't have to worry about any slips, but it is also easy to undo and doesn't dig into the skin at all. I am never taking this off. I swear to God my cleavage looks like Rihanna herself blessed it. Bless this woman." — Savage X Fenty reviewer

"Supportive, comfortable and so worth it. I bought all their colors and I since the pandemic I switched from expensive bras to bralettes. I love this one.. I’m a 38 D and got the XL perfect fit." — Nordstrom reviewer

"Doesn’t look like it would have support but it really does! I’m a DD and it works without a too tight band if you know what I mean. Very comfortable and supportive. Even helps on the sides:)" — Amazon reviewer

"I'm a 36 DD or E, and even though it's not listed, I decided to give this a try, in size large. It showed up looking kind of small, but when I put it on, it was nice and stretchy. It's firm enough to hug you, but not firm enough to give you bumps from digging into skin. I was amazed I had support, my boobs look fantastic, and I even have some separation, the girls aren't crammed together in a uniboob. I haven't had issues with sweat, and I often forget I have this bra on. My daughter said it looks like a bikini top, and I'm tempted... I'm ordering more of these, lots more."— Amazon reviewer

"I’m a 40DD in a Bali Underwire Minimizer, went one band size up on this one and it fits perfectly. Very soft fabric, no uniboob or smashing. Will keep the light padding in for shaping & offers some support. Will be ordering more in additional colors."— Amazon reviewer

"The reviews are RIGHT! This is an amazing bra. It molds perfectly around your chest, no bulging whatsoever! I am a 38 DD and got size large. This is great for woman who have had a boob job like myself and are not looking for any push up. You can not see the band of the bra in the back while wearing a t shirt. It’s also extremely comfortable and you can’t even feel it on! Highly recommend for a daily bra."— Nordstrom reviewer
