If there's one bra out there that's particularly hard to shop for, it's the strapless kind. They're either too tight or falling down, and if you're a DD cup or higher, it's hard to find them in stores. That's why I go to the internet for the best strapless bras for DD cups. Shopping online for bras is way easier, and you can read real reviews from people who wear the same cup size, instead of going to a department store to have salespeople come at you with tape measures under fluorescent lighting.
And just because I have a larger chest size doesn't mean I don't want to wear strapless dresses, shirts, or those trendy off the shoulder tops that I can't seem to get enough of. But it's a struggle. One minute, my outfit looks great, and the next, I'm frantically pulling up my strapless bra because it somehow dropped all the way down to my stomach. Or the bra is digging into my sides and I want to go home, fling my bra on the couch, and ice up my ribcage. Or it doesn't give me the support I desire. Luckily, there's better ones out there—bras that won't fall down, that give support, the option of cleavage, or even come with convertible straps. And they're comfortable! From soft lace, to bandeau, and everything in between, here are some great strapless bra options that come in DD cups.
1. The Comfortable Bra That Will Stay In Place All Day
If you're looking to wear a bra for a very long time, this comfort strapless bra is the perfect one for the job. With stay-put technology and soft boning, this bra won't move or dig into the skin. If you're looking for lift, this bra will provide some, and it also comes with convertible straps. One reviewer says, "This bra will change your life. As a bigger, big chested girl I thought I could never wear strappy or strapless dresses. But dear lord does this bra stay in place. It's the most supportive bra I own and I'm so happy with it."
2. This Lacy Bra With Medical Grade Silicone Will Never Slip Down
This halo strapless bra has smooth lace that will lay flat underneath clothing. Made from spandex and nylon, it's got some stretch to make it feel like a bandeau bra, but also has underwire for some added support. Reviewers love that the underwire is comfortable and the bra is true to size, "I'm a size 36DD and I got that size which ended up fitting perfectly. It stays put as the cups are molded."
3. The Strapless Bra You Can Sleep In
If you're searching for a strapless push-up bra, reviewers are loving that this one by Calvin Klein is so comfortable—one reviewer even says they sleep in it! It's lightly lined, has underwire, and hooks at the back. Many order it in a band size up, and this bra is a great option for those looking to enhance their bust around 1/2 a cup size.
4. This Longline Bra Is Perfect For Dancing All Night In
With a sweetheart neckline and flexible boning, this longline strapless bra is great underneath gowns or dresses for nights out. There's boning and silicone to keep things from slipping, but because it fits tight and secure, many recommend to go a size up on the band. One reviewer raves, "This baby stayed put all night through a wedding reception filled with nonstop dancing, jumping, and moving. I'm usually a 36D-DD, and got this one in a 38DD, and it fit well."
5. The Perfect Bra For Those Who Don't Want Underwire
This bandeau bra is essentially the sweatshirt of the bra world. It's soft, stretchy, and perfect for those who don't want any underwire or boning in their bras. There's nothing restrictive about this bra, and it also comes with removable padding. The bra also isn't measured by cup size: a small is for a band size in 32, a medium fits 34, a large fits 36, and an extra-large is made for a 38. All sizes will fit a DD cup.
6. A Bra With A Deep Sweetheart Neckline Is Perfect For Low Cut Tops
When the dress you are wearing is low-cut or has a deep V neck, this lace strapless bra won't show at all. It's hand-shaped cups create a better fit and provide some extra lift. It's also got silicone strips and an elastic grip that won't slip, and some hidden underwire. One reviewer who wears a size 36DD wrote, "One of my favorite strapless bras. If you follow the sizing you will really enjoy it!"
7. This Bra For Those Who Want To Minimize Their Bust
This tailored minimizer bra provides support to those who don't want push-up or padding, and are looking to minimize bust size. It features a wide back strap for comfort, and has some grip on the inside to stay put. Reviewers really love this bra: "Omg!! This is the best strapless bra ever. I am a 34DD and have been looking for a good strapless bra that provides support for a while now. This is it!!"
