When you have large breasts, bra shopping can be a time investment, especially if you're looking to say goodbye to underwires. But the best bras without underwire for big boobs utilize various combinations of stretchy fabric, wide bands, and clever strap placement to keep your breasts supported and comfortable.

While there are definitely times when you may be in the mood to channel your inner Sophia Loren and push your breasts up and away, underwire bras are not your only option if you have large breasts. In fact, with the help of certain construction elements, you can comfortably go for lacy plunging styles, strappy yoga bralettes, or utilitarian sports bras that’ll help you concentrate on your workout — not on what you’re wearing. And besides looking for supportive design features, be sure to keep an eye out for options that come backed by real reviewers, so you can order with confidence. No matter your preference, there's a wire-free bra out there that will suit you (and your boobs) perfectly.

Whether lacy, sporty, or perfectly optimized to wear under a T-shirt, these fan-favorite bras are not only comfortable, supportive, and good-looking — but they’re perfect for larger breasts.


Vanity Fair Body Shine Full-Coverage Wire-Free Bra

With a flexible cup design, banded frame anchors for extra support, and wide straps, this 4.4-star rated bra is lauded by women with larger cup sizes for being "light and comfortable" and providing "excellent support," despite the wire-free design. The full-coverage bra has lightly lined cups that provide a smoothing effect under clothes. It comes in soft neutrals like quartz, beige, and black.

According to a reviewer: “What works best for me is a average (not full figure) pattern bra in a hard-to-find 42D size. This bra is perfect. It's super comfortable, and fits like a second skin. Nothing pinches or gaps, the shoulder straps stay up, and there's just the right amount of padding.”

  • Available sizes: 34B — 42D
  • Available colors: 8


Playtex 18-Hour Ultimate Lift Wire-Free Bra

Boasting 34,000 perfect five-star reviews, the Playtex 18-Hour bra is a fan-favorite for a reason. Designed for all-day support, it has multi-seam panels, molded jersey cups, and higher sides — as well as four rows of hook-and-eye closures for larger cup sizes. To upgrade the comfort factor, the wide straps are cushioned, so they won’t dig in or slide around. It comes in basics like black and toffee, as well as pretty options like sky blue and peach.

According to a reviewer: “I’m very picky with bras. I hate underwire, and as a size 36-38 DD there are not a ton of bras that support and lift without an underwire. [...] I wear it all day without being uncomfortable. I’m surprised how long I do wear it as I usually am the person that takes off her bra as soon as I’m home. [...] It’s literally the holy grail of bras.”

  • Available sizes: 36B — 46G
  • Available colors: 11


Bali Comfort Revolution Wire-Free Bra

Multiple reviewers have reported that this casual wire-free bra from Bali is what convinced them to abandon underwire. It has ultra-thin foam cups with enough stretch to give you the perfect, comfortable fit, and knit-in support for your back and sides enhances comfort, while the extra-side straps won’t dig into shoulders. The big draw here is that this bra can be worn comfortably all day and doesn't have lacy elements or bows, which could be a plus if you don’t want certain design elements to show under clothing. It’s unpadded (so might offer a little less coverage), and comes in a variety of colors, some of which have subtle prints.

According to a reviewer: “So not only does this bra do an outstanding job of supporting me for a wireless, it also happens to be the absolute most comfortable bra I have ever owned. I’ve owned countless bras from different brands so that’s really saying something. [...] If there were such a thing as a soulmate bra, this would definitely be mine. The straps never slip, a problem I constantly have with practically every other bra, the band never digs into me...”

  • Available sizes: 32B — 42DD
  • Available colors: 20


True & Co. True Body Lift Triangle Adjustable Strap Bra

Yes, wireless bras for large breasts can also be cute, comfortable, and nearly invisible under clothing, and this True & Co. bra is proof.

Plus, for a streamlined feel, the pullover bra has minimal hardware, which means a lot less digging in. It has adjustable straps and removable pads, so you can get just the right fit.

Editor’s note: I wear a size 32DD, so bra shopping has typically not been super fun for me, but I am obsessed with True & Co. wireless bras. They vanish under clothing, and offer enough coverage so that I don’t spill out of the top. The best part? They’re so comfortable, I usually forget I’m even wearing a bra.” — Carina Finn

In addition to a low-cut front, the straps of this bra fan out into a wide V shape, which helps streamline the fit while preventing digging in.

According to a reviewer: “I wear 40DD bras and need support, particularly on the sides. Underwires are so uncomfortable that as soon as I get home [...] I got the purplish color and it's beautiful but more important, the fit is fantastic. Full coverage, support and comfort. I'm throwing away uncomfortable bras and ordering two more of these.”

The wide straps are adjustable — but not stretchy — keeping everything in place while you do your thing.

According to a reviewer: “In this thing, I can run, jump, do jumping jacks, I could be a trampoline artist with this thing. I wear a G cup. Can you understand how life-changing a bra like this is? In this thing, my breasts do not shake or move at all. Seriously. I usually keep it on the tightest setting, but sometimes will let it out a bit if I'm not doing a high-impact exercise.This is not a bra to be wearing to lounge around the house or just hang out. It is a SERIOUS sports bra for serious activity.”

I highly recommend this product. The price tag might be a concern but trust me if you struggle to find a bralette because you have a large cup size and a small rib cage this is more than worth it.”

They fit exactly how I wanted them to! A little tight but good coverage and very comfortable. I did take the cups out which made a huge difference.”

Dinamit Jeans Plus-Size Seamless Padded Bandeau Bra

According to a reviewer: “I love this bra so much. I wear a 42DDD or a 44DD [...] I ordered the 1x/2x and it fit, but there was still A LOT of room to stretch. I wore it all day under a sun dress for the 4th of July and my boobs stayed in place even with bending over and lighting fireworks a few times. The bra doesn't provide much lift and I did feel the need to separate my boobs a couple of times throughout the night, but overall it was incredibly comfortable.”

  • Available sizes: Small/Medium —- 7X/8X


Warner's Play It Cool Wire-Free Contour Bra With Lift

With a 4.5-star overall rating on Amazon, this bra has light lift pads that support your bust without creating major cleavage and band that’ll sit flat under a formfitting T-shirt. With adjustable cushioned back straps that can easily convert to criss-cross style (helpful if you want extra support or don’t want the straps to show under racerback tops), the Warner's Play It Cool wire-free bra gives you tons of options and comes in muted colors like toasted almond and dark gray.

Reviewers have reported that the bra's straps are a bit wider than average, which makes them ultra-comfortable, and that the cups don't squish breasts together like a traditional push-up bra.

According to a reviewer: “Look no further, this bra is everything for a larger chested woman who loathes underwire! I’m a D cup, but I would squeeze into C cups for years because C cups were a little easier to find without underwire. [...] First thing I always do when I get home from work is take off the need with this one. I could fall asleep in it and forget I’m even wearing it.”

  • Available sizes: 34A — 38D

MotoRun Strappy Yoga Bra

This plunge bra can be worn as a sports bra for low-impact workouts like yoga, walking, or pilates, but it would also pair well with a top that has a plunging neckline — if you’re in the mood to show off the strappy details.

The four-way stretch fabric allows for optimum comfort and movement, and criss-cross strap details in back keep things cute. The bra is available in a handful of colors, styles, and single- or multipacks.

According to a reviewer: “This is a super cute bra! It has a soft material that is really comfy. The design is really pretty and I love the way it looks.
