Amazon, Bare Necessities
Feel supported without a single strap in sight with this bustier-style long line bra, this unlined bandeau and this stabilizing anti-bulge bra that creates a flattering rounded profile.

Strapless bras are possibly the most temperamental item in the world of undergarments. They’re notorious for sliding down, offering mediocre support and creating odd indented profiles. This is even more true for larger chest sizes, for which adequate and comfortable support is a must.

As frustrating as this reality is for boobs-havers everywhere, sometimes a strap-free bra is necessary for those special occasions that call for a shoulder-baring top.

If you’ve been staring at that strapless dress but haven’t been able to wear it because your strapless bra search has come up short, we’ve gathered a helpful list of anti-bulge back-smoothing bras, comfortable bandeaus, lifting bustiers and large-cup bras that offer support without any jabbing underwire. Plus, see what other large-busted reviewers had to say about them.

A buttery soft bandeau bra
Constructed from an ultra-soft stretch fabric and free from underwire, this seamless bandeau by Skims offers slightly compressive support, without digging in your skin. It's available in nine skin-toned shades, as well as some limited edition colors like electric blue and fuchsia.

Promising review: "This bra held up all night through dancing and sweating. I have a large bust so was happy to find something that works." –– Kallie H.
A stabilizing anti-bulge bra with a flattering rounded profile
This full-busted underwire bra has a silicone strip and hidden stays that stabilize the sides and band and keep the bra in place. The molded stretch foam cups maintain their shape to keep a flattering rounded profile that won't create odd dents underneath T-shirts, and the seamless band smooths and prevents bulging. Available in four colors and sizes 30D-44G, this bra comes with a detachable strap to accommodate a number of different wear styles.

Promising review: “I have tried out and owned dozens of strapless bras, but was never quite able to find one that I actually enjoyed wearing, until now. One of the biggest problems that I have is that they always seem to create a weird silhouette in profile that looks more 'cone' shaped than rounded, or they show an obvious line where the top of the cups hit my chest. This is the first one that I have found that does not create an odd profile, and it has the perfect rounded shape.” – KH
An underwire contour bra with multi-way wear
Available in 23 different colors in cup sizes B-H and band sizes up to 46, this contoured underwire bra has over 8,000 positive reviews and features detachable straps that allows the bra to be worn in a number of different ways, such as crossed in the front or over one shoulder. The slightly padded cups offer extra support and promote a natural rounded shape, while soft boning embedded in the breathable mesh band prevents buckling.

Promising review: “I am large-busted and haven't bought a strapless bra in years because every other one I've ever tried has either been so tight it was uncomfortable OR slipped down all the time. But I fell in love with a dress that requires a strapless bra so I gave this one a shot. First, the bra fits just as expected- not too large or small. It gives ‘the ladies’ just the right amount of support without squishing them. It is so comfortable that honestly, I forgot I was wearing a strapless bra after a bit. Also, it stays in place- all day- not slipping or tugging. It came at a good price with good quality. I can't recommend this bra highly enough!” – StacieG
A no-show lifting bra with a deep plunge for cleavage
This plunging, curving V-shape bra sits low in the back and leaves a generous space for cleavage, making it a great option to wear with lower-cut dresses. Available in 14 colors and in sizes 32A-42F, this lace-detailed bra uses a flexi-wire to lift breasts, creating a pushup effect, along with slightly padded cups for extra support. Silicone strips line the top of the bra, allowing the cups to stay in place even while you move.

Promising review: “I LOVE this bra!! I ordered 40DD and it held 'the girls' up all night !! I’m impressed! Not only does it do a great job supporting you but it is also very low so your bra doesn’t show on the back ! I highly recommend this bra!” – Real Fontaine
A large cup strapless bra with vertical boning

The vertical boning built into the cups, sides and back provides great lift and support. Also available in black, this bra is fully convertible and comes with adjustable stretch straps to provide customized wear.

Promising review: “The pictures on the model really tell the story. Supportive wide band and structured/reinforced cups plus no padding really lets this strapless bra hold my Tata’s up as if I had on straps...and it’s comfy. I wore it all day while working from home, after intending to just try it on.” – Sharay

I did my research and read the reviews and purchased this [one] and, amazingly, [it] came through!!!! Yassss ladies This is it!!! My boobs feel secure, pushed up just right, and With NO spillage.” – Stephanie Marie
A supportive, unlined bandeau-style bra with stretch
The body-form design of this bandeau-style bra prevents visible bra lines under clothing and uses a supportive built-in underwire to lift breasts and provide a more comfortable wear. It's made from four-way stretch microfiber and features a highly breathable knit-in area between the breasts to reduce sweating, making this a great option to wear in warmer months. You can get this bandeau in 11 different colors and sizes 1X-3X.

Promising review: “It was great to finally find a strapless bra for bigger breasts that works. This is really comfortable. And, it doesn't ride or end up rolling like many bandeau bras do. The fabric is soft and stretchy and it's easy to get on and off over your head. The larger the bra, the bigger the cup size also! This was the best part. I liked this so much I bought 2 in black and 2 in nude.” – Sheila
A bustier-style longline bra ideal for wearing under form-fitting garments
For extended coverage and smoothing along the back, this half-bustier-style strapless bra is a highly rated option that's great for formal wear and form-fitting garments.

Promising review: “When I tell you I have found the perfect strapless bra, I MEAN IT!! I have been looking for YEARS for the perfect strapless bra that lifts me up and keeps me there comfortably and this bra is it. This bra has a wide band that gives my back a very smooth look, underwire and padding. I'm a 42DD and I tried dancing in this bra to make sure my boobs would not spill out and they didn't! I feel so secure when wearing this. Overall I feel like it was a great investment!!” – Tesha
A seamless unlined minimizer bra that works well under a variety of clothing
Using full coverage and seam-free cups, this bra helps support, shape and minimize bust size while providing an uplifting effect for a secure wear. Breathable mesh side wings keep you cool while built-in boning prevents overflow and silicone straps keep the bra in place. This bra is available in 23 colors and in cup sizes up to G and band sizes up to 46.

Promising review: “I am shocked that this bra actually fit! I First of all the stays or bones make all the difference. I have a lot of breast tissue and the stays or bones, especially the one in the center between the breasts makes all the difference. It prevents uni-boob, and it prevents the heavy boob sweat. It's soft fabric. The size I am, and the size I ordered fit 38DD.” – Aisha
A lace-covered strapless bra ideal for full-bottomed breasts
Ideal for shallow-topped and full-bottomed or uneven breasts, this strapless lace underwire bra can help create a rounded and natural looking shape without any of the weird gapping you can sometimes get with strapless bras. It has silicone straps along the top and base of the bra to keep it in place, and comes with separate fully adjustable straps. It's available in two colors, cup sizes up to DDD and band sizes up to 40.

Promising review: “As a woman with larger breasts (34DDD), it has been impossible to find comfortable, supportive, and attractive bras, let alone strapless ones! This bra fits all of those requirements. I wear this bra even when I don't need strapless! It stays up and is fully supportive. I highly highly recommend this bra for women needing more support.” – Julie’s Books
A buttery soft strapless bra that supports without painful underwire
If you're not a fan of underwire, but still like the support it provides, this soft, fully lined strapless bra might be a good option to try. It features full coverage contour cups that create a natural shape, a stay-put technology to provide support and keep it in place, and removable adjustable straps allow you to wear this bra in five different ways. It's available in two colors and sizes 32A-42DD.

Promising review: “I purchased this bra and have worn it on a daily basis for almost a year now. It stays up well all day. I even ordered a larger cup size and used it while I was breastfeeding. I am normally a 34C and go up to a 36DD when pregnant/breastfeeding. It is very hard to find strapless bras that will work normally, let alone when my breasts grow! It has a slight grip to it that I think really helps. Love this bra.” – Anonymous
