New lingerie is one of the great pleasures of life, and there's no time like spring to spruce up your intimates wardrobe with fresh new colors and styles. Sometimes, however, finding the right bra can be a challenge, particularly if you wear size DD bras or higher. There are a number of great lingerie brands out there that make gorgeous designs in every color and type, but when you're looking for bras in DD+ and extended band sizes, it can feel like your options for equally contemporary and pretty pieces are few and far between. You probably want support and function without sacrificing style or the special details that can make underwear sexy, but searching through racks of uninspiring basics looking for a glimpse of lace or a fun new hue can be extremely discouraging.
Luckily, more and more emerging retailers are creating beautiful bras in extended sizes, and I’ve assembled some of the best and brightest here for you. Everyone deserves to feel good in their body, and properly-fitting, attractive undergarments are one way to care for and celebrate yourself.
Whether you're looking for clean lines, lush lace, or sexy embellishments, there's a bra here worthy of your loveliest spring outfit (or a day at home rocking nothing but your skivvies). After all, these pieces are way too fun to be hidden away.
1. Polka-Dot Perfection
Curvy Kate Lime Princess Bra, Sizes 38C-44FF, $68, Evans
This dotted and lace-embellished stunner is perfect for spring. The sweet citrus shade is an added bonus.
2. Luxe Longline
Geo Lace Longline French Balconette Bra, Sizes 36C-46DDD, $68.50 Cacique
There's so much to love about this piece, from the double-strap detailing to the geometric lace and mesh inserts. The longline shape lends this bra a playful vibe and will give you some added support.
3. Striped Simplicity
Red Stripe Full Cup Wired Bra, Sizes 36D-50DDD, $22.99, Simple Be
Not a huge fan of lace but still want a little something extra? This red, striped design is all style, no fluff.
4. Fresh Florals
Goddess Kayla Banded Underwire Bra, Sizes 34I-46J, $34.95, HerRoom
For a feminine bra with a bit of punch, a vivid, complementary color scheme and mesh inserts are just the ticket. Flowers for springtime might not be groundbreaking, but it's hard to argue with a look this good.
5. Modern Mesh

7. Back To Black
Wacoal Retro Chic Bra, Sizes 32C-46I, $60, Bare Necessities
Like the little black dress, the little black bra is a wardrobe staple. Staple doesn't have to mean basic, however. This retro-inspired design will make you feel glamorous, even when it's just a jeans-and-tee kind of day.
8. Candy Crush
Claudette Dessous Underwire Bra, Sizes 28D-38G, $62, Nordstrom
Pairing a sheer, minimal design with a delicious hot pink hue, this bra is sure to give you a rosy outlook. With a G-cup option for band sizes as low as a 28, it's great for the petite-yet-busty set as well.
9. Bright Side
