Whether you live in a desert or tundra, love halter tops or abhor them, there will probably come a time in your life when you've considered investing in a strapless push-up bra. The convenience of owning a bra that doesn't show under most clothing nor sacrifices support is a major reason why strapless push-up bras are considered a staple in some women's lingerie collections.

But if you've ever owned or tried on your share of strapless push-up bras, you probably know that all are not equal. A bra that supports one body type can fall flat on another or prove too constricting, while other bras simply won't stay up at all, let alone "lift." Then there are those strapless bras with cups that can be detected from miles away. But there are others so seamless and comfortable you'll forget you're wearing anything at all.

As always, the challenge is finding a bra brand that makes the ideal strapless push-up bra for your body, wardrobe, and lifestyle. Whether you want gel technology for a more natural, subtle lift, or are looking for a bra that provides the maximum amount of support and cleavage-boosting powers, here are 13 of the best strapless push-up bras.

A Classic Wonderbra With No-Slip 'Hands' Technology

Combine Wonderbra's classic lift, "hands" technology that prevents your bra from folding over, and a silicone-lined strapless bandeau bra design and you get this modern classic — a bra that many Amazon reviewers consider one of the best strapless bras they've ever owned. Regardless of your cup size, the shape of your breasts, or whether you've nursed, this bra does an outstanding job at holding you in, lifting you up, and staying put.

Helpful Review: “For the first time, I think that I found a very good strapless bra. [...] I [leave] those side bands in the cups, which provide a solid structure. I have worn it a few times thus far under a loose halter top and under a dress: the bra stayed put despite the fact that I was sweating (very hot weather here): no need for tugging and no awkward slippage.”

This Fan Favorite With Underwire For Large Busts

It may be pricier than the other picks on this list, but this strapless bra is so well constructed, according to thousands of reviewers, that it’s worth the investment. This pick has underwire for support for larger cup sizes, smooth and seamless foam cups that provide lift, and silicone strips along the top and bottom for extra adhesion. It also features hook-and-eye closures on the back and has a 4.4-star rating and more than 4,000 reviews, making it a favorite. It comes with optional straps that you can use to convert it to a traditional, halter, crisscross, and one-shoulder style.

Helpful Review: “I honestly can't say enough good things about it, and now I understand why it has such great reviews and why so many people are willing to spend $65 on a bra. Even though I generally hate strapless bras, this is one that I would have no problem wearing even if my outfit didn't call for a strapless. It is incredibly comfortable and doesn't shift around with movement. It is the only strapless that I will ever wear, and want to encourage anyone interested to go ahead and try it out, because you will most likely not be let down.”

The Strapless Plus Size Bra With Smaller Cup Sizes

One of the challenges when shopping for a plus size bra is that one too many bra brands exclude smaller cup sizes from their collection — but this push-up strapless plus size bra, made with comfortable fiber-filled cups and sexy lace, comes in a B through DDD cup sizes and has gripper elastic that keeps it from slipping and sliding. It has detachable straps and comes in black, white, and ivory.

A Gel-Touch Push-Up Bra With Underwire Cups

This gel padded strapless push-up bra has underwire cups and graduated padding. This bra features silicone along the underwire to help it stay in place and is seamless and smooth under clothing. It comes with invisible straps (just in case) and according to hundreds of rave Amazon reviewers, it does a great job of holding up all day long.

Helpful Review: “I'm a 32A in American sizing, so I definitely need the help that push-up bras can offer, but I pretty much gave up on strapless bras after how frustrating my past ones were. I stumbled across this one on accident and decided to take a chance after reading the reviews. BEST decision ever! The bra is definitely tight, but I think this is necessary for a strapless bra. The edges are lined with anti-slip material which, combined with how tight it is, prevent any slippage!! I wear this bra all day and the only times I adjust it are out of habit, not necessity.”

I gave this a shot due to the shape and price, and I am so glad I did! It’s amazing!!! It fits perfectly and doesn’t work it’s way down on me through the day. It’s comfortable and is just exactly what I needed.”
