Oh, so many types of bras, so little time. There are strapless bras, adhesive bras, balconettes, convertible styles, and the list goes on. But sometimes (read: most of the time), I just want a to find the best plus-size full-coverage bra and call it a day — but that is easier said than done.
Whether you’re in search of the illusive large band and small cup combo, or you just can’t find a cup that fully covers your boobs, shopping for a full-coverage bra can feel like a Herculean effort — but fear not! I've arranged a list of great full-coverage plus size bras that you'll be thrilled to add to your lingerie drawer.
Now, the term "full-coverage" might conjure images of the bra equivalent of a granny panty. But there are lots of great styles and colors out there that offer full-coverage while still featuring all the fun frills. There's everything from a basic, dependable T-shirt bra to a sexy bralette. All of which offer amazing support and comfort through out the day.
Don't bother running around the mall to find the one full-coverage bra you might actually like. I've got eight of the very best right here waiting for you. To your boobs I say, "You're welcome."
1. A Retro Styled Bra In Adorably Bright Teal
This bra puts to rest the myth that full-coverage is synonymous with frumpy. It has a retro-inspired design and comes in a wide range of colors, though this bright teal is my personal favorite. But it's not just pretty, it's functional too, it features supportive underwire, a wide band, and mesh covered lace that's designed to virtually disappear under clothes.
2. A Sheer Bra For All Sizes
This sheer lace bra has a great mix of pretty and practical. The straps are designed for extra comfort so they won't dig into your shoulders. The wire provides great support and it's extra lined to feel like it's not even there. But the best part is this is another incredibly affordable bra that goes up to a 50G! Just because you have big boobs doesn't mean you have to go broke supporting them.
3. A Cute Pink Bra With Lots Of Lace
If you have a cup size larger than a DD, you're probably used to paying $100 or more for a decent bra. Thankfully, this bra comes in an incredible range of sizes at a very affordable price. You get underwire support and cups that give you shape without adding additional padding.
4. A Bra With Hot Pink Lace
Lace is great, but sometimes under certain tops or dresses, it adds an unwanted bumpy texture. With this bra, you get the pretty look of lace with a perfectly smooth cup. The microfiber bra has printed on hot pink lace. The molded cups are super comfortable and it will lay seamlessly under the tightest tops.
5. The Go-To Bra That's Just Plain Good
I love fancy lingerie, but most of the time I just want a comfortable bra I can count on. This is that bra. This bra is made with gently stretching fabric for just the right fit. The underwired cups give a bit of lift and the straps are specially designed to stay in place all day.
6. A Wire-Free Bra For All Day Comfort
You might just be surprised at how supportive a wireless bra can be. And of course, since there are no wires involved, it's incredibly comfortable. It also features thick, lined straps for even more comfort and has a seamless design so it essentially disappears under clothes.
7. A Supportive Bra With Sexy Mesh
8. A Strappy Bralette You'll Want To Wear With Everything
Bralettes don't have an amazing reputation when it comes to support, but that's not the case with this strappy number. Sure, you won't want to run a marathon in it, but for everyday use, this bralette will leave you more than happy. Plus, this on-trend design is great to show off when you pair it under a low cut top or a slinky sundress.
