No matter what style you're looking for, good bras for larger chests are always harder to find. Your average store won't carry higher than a D cup, and you need to know it's a solid bra before you can buy it online. The best T-shirt bras for big boobs seem like they should be easy to find, but it's more complicated than you might think. On the one hand, it's one of the most popular styles because it's comfy, simple, and works with a lot of outfits. On the other hand, extra stitching often means extra support for big boobs, and T-shirt bras specifically avoid that feature.
While most people picture two triangle shaped cups and a plunging neckline, T-shirt bras actually come in several shapes and designs. That's because it's not the shape that defines them, but the smoothness. Their purpose is to remain invisible underneath clothing, so while they may or may not have wires, padding, or a push-up effect, they absolutely never have any seams.
Still, the good ones make up for it in other ways. Thick straps, full coverage, and contoured cups help to provide support without contributing to visible bra lines. These nine awesome bras are made for DD cups and above, but even though they're sleek and smooth, they don't compromise on support.
1. This Padded Stretchy Bra That's Built For Comfort
With cushioned straps, unique stretch, and smoothing comfort, it's no wonder the Olga To A Tee contour bra has hundreds of rave reviews. "It's very smooth, enough padding in the cups to not show anything through your shirt, and provides good support all around your ribcage," wrote one reviewer. It also comes in several stylish colors and designs.
2. A Bra With Hidden Underwire For Added Comfort & Fewer Lines
The hidden underwire in this Le Mystere bra means two things: more comfort for you, and fewer visible bra lines. It uses contoured foam to shape, smooth, and lift, and all the band sizes go up to an H cup.
3. This Simple Bra That You'll Forget To Take Off At Night
It might look simple, but this Wacoal bra has reviewers raving. The light and airy cups give you coverage without bulk, the back is U-shaped so the straps won't slip off your shoulders, and the cups go up to a G. One customer even left this glowing review on Amazon: "These bras are so comfortable, I sometimes forget to take them off at night."
4. A Bra With Contoured Cups & Microfiber Fabric For Small Bands
The Cleo Jude T-shirt bra is made specifically for small bands and large cup combinations. The contour underwire cups give you lift and support, while the soft microfiber material glides effortlessly against other fabrics. They also feature a deep center plunge for low necklines and come in seven different colors.
5. A Bra That Disappears Under Clothing & Minimizes Movement
Featuring seamless cups, a silky smooth finish, and underwire support, this full-coverage smoothing bra is designed to disappear underneath clothing. It also really helps with minimizing movement. "OMG, the girls feel so strapped in and secure," wrote one hyper-enthusiastic reviewer commented. "They hardly move (34F) if that's possible."
6. If You Absolutely Hate Wires, This Bra Supports Without Them
Even though it has no wires whatsoever, this Leading Lady plus size bra offers support and lift in other ways. It uses extra wide straps, full coverage, lightly padded cups, and a leotard back. It also goes up to a G cup and comes in a ton of gorgeous patterns.
7. This DD Bra With Over 400 Great Reviews
Reviewers are raving about the Maidenform One Fab Fit T-shirt bra, which goes up to a DD. It flatters and creates cleavage with a thick padding and a plunge design, and in addition to being super durable, people also commented that it's the "best fitting and most comfortable and flattering bra ever! Do not discontinue!"
8. The Plus Size Bra That's Breathable, Comfortable, & Smooth Under Clothes
This Delimira bra is specifically designed for plus sizes, and it only uses fabrics that are breathable, comfortable, and invisible underneath clothing. The padding is also thin for a minimized look, and once reviewer raved "looks great under snugger t-shirts and fits perfectly."
9. Even Though It's Got Gorgeous Lace Detailing, This Bra Is Still Undetectable Under Blouses
Even though it's got fuller coverage, this bra remains gorgeous and sexy. The soft stretch foam lift, shapes, and glides against clothing, and the lace wings and detail give a decorative touch without showing through your shirts. One reviewer even wrote that it "fits like it was custom made," and they no longer have that "third bump in the middle of [their] blouses."
