The Best Bras for Large Breasts
No two sets of breasts are alike, so finding the perfect fitting bra can be a process. If you're a woman with larger breasts, meaning that you are a 36C and up, you have different needs than a woman who is a 32B. Most importantly, you need more support.
"Having the right cup size is important so the cups don’t gap or create a 'quadriboob,' that extra bulge popping out of the top of a bra, but I can’t stress how important it is to know the correct band size," says Erin Lynn, vice president of marketing, Intimate Apparel at PVH . "The majority of support comes from the band, so if it is not fitted properly, the wearer may experience sagging or their straps digging in as a result of carrying most of the weight."
Of course getting properly fitted is paramount, but there are certain styles that fuller-busted and curvier women may like or are more inclined to try, like bras with a side panel that smooths out “sleevage” aka underarm bulge, says Lynn. Minimizers also offer a sleek silhouette and eliminate the gaping on button-front shirts. So with that in mind, we found the 6 best bras for larger breasts.
Though this underwire bra has full coverage, it does incorporate sheer panels and lace for a sexier feel.
