Bras for DD+ Cup Sizes

If you have larger breasts (DD cup or larger), you know that finding the right bra isn’t always easy – but it’s extremely important. To help guide your bra shopping, I’ve picked out the best bras for DD+ cup sizes in 12 of the most popular bra styles on the market.

Each of the following bras are designed specifically for larger cup sizes and give you the things you need most from a bra, including comfort, support, coverage, lift, shaping, durability, and versatility.

Note: Not all bra types are created equal. Each of the following styles are made to do something different for you depending on your figure, size, and outfit.

1. Underwire

Wacoal Perfect Primer Full Figure Underwire Bra

Underwire bras come in a variety of coverage levels and styles, but all feature wires in the cups to provide extra lift and support. This makes underwire bras the perfect choice for women with larger breasts.

This ultra soft full-coverage bra features molded cups, a supportive and uplifting underwire, and inner side support slings for a custom-feeling fit and a beautiful shape.

Natori Pure Luxe Contour Underwire Bra

2. T-Shirt 

T-shirt bras, also referred to as contour bras, are one of the most popular bra styles for everyday wear. Their seamless, molded cups create a rounded shape that is smooth and invisible under clothing while light padding prevents nipple show through and provides modesty.

This is one of Natori’s best-selling bras, and for very good reason. Embroidered front straps give this bra a stylish, feminine look while underwires provide great lift and support for large breasts. Seamless contour cups create a lovely rounded shape and a smooth look under even the closest-fitting clothes.

3. Demi Cup 

Simone Perele Promesse Demi Cup Bra

Sometimes called half-cup bras, demi cup bras cover about half of your breasts. They give you the boost, support and shape you want and work great under lower cut tops where a full coverage cup won’t do.

This demi cup bra features unlined, multi-part, underwire cups, gorgeous leavers lace detail, and inner side slings for extra lift and support. It’s a great option for women with larger breasts who want all the support with a little less coverage.

Wacoal The Red Carpet Strapless Full-Busted Underwire Bra

4. Strapless/Convertible

Every woman needs a strapless bra in her life for those trickier tops – but if you’re full figured, you might think that’s not an option for you. But with the right bra, you can have it all.

The Wacoal Red Carpet strapless bra is a strapless convertible bra that features great support and shaping as well as removable convertible straps for style versatility. No-slip lining and side boning keep it up and in place all day.

5. Unlined

Empreinte Cassiopee Seamless Embroidery Full Cup Bra

An unlined bra doesn’t have any padding or foam lining in the cups. Designed to give you a natural shape, this style is a favorite for when you want light, pretty support that flatters your silhouette.

This bra features sheer, seamless mesh cups with beautiful low profile embroidery that lies flat under clothing. It’s designed to create a sense of feminine allure while providing superior support to full busts.

Sculptresse by Panache Chi Chi Full Cup Underwire Bra

6. Multi-part Cup

This bra style, also called the seamed bra and cut and sew bra, has carefully constructed cups that are made up of multiple parts. Seamed cups have three key advantages: support, shaping, and lift. This is what makes this bra style ideal for larger breasts.

This full cup underwire bra features unlined 4-part seamed cups with stretch lace tops and a tall back and sides for extra smoothing.

Chantelle C Magnifique Molded Minimizer Underwire Bra

7. Minimizer

Minimizer bras can reduce breast projection by up to two inches for a more flattering silhouette under clothes. Their cups are specially designed to redistribute the breast tissue evenly to create the illusion of a smaller bust. If you have problems with gapping between buttons in button-up shirts, this bra style is a must-have.

This full coverage underwire minimizer bra by Chantelle has smooth jacquard cups with a silky lining that adapts to your shape.

Panache Envy Balconnet Bra

8. Balconette

The balconette, or balconnet, is a popular style because it creates a rounded shape and great support with less coverage. The straps tend to be a little wider set than on other bra styles.

This Panache balconnet bra has unpadded, multi-part underwire cups and stretch lace panels in the tops for a customized fit.

9. Full Coverage

Elomi Cate Underwire Full Cup Banded Bra

Full coverage, or full cup, bras provide all-over coverage and maximum support. This is one of the most secure-feeling bra styles, and it comes in a variety of pretty colors, patterns, and materials.

This Elomi bra has multi-part underwire cups with a lined upper panel and flattened embroidery. The seaming shapes and lifts the breasts while side support panels bring the breasts front and center for a nice shape.

Freya Deco Underwire Plunge T-Shirt Bra

10. Plunge

Plunge bras are perfect for when you want a little less coverage, but don’t want to sacrifice support. If you’re wearing a low-cut top, a plunge bra will give you the right level of coverage without peeking out from under your top.

This underwire plunge bra has seamless, smoothing cups and sexy low-cut styling for invisible wear.

11. Soft Cup

Vanity Fair Beauty Back Full Figure Wirefree Bra

Also referred to as a wireless or wire-free bra, this style is great for leisure and sleep. It creates a more natural shape and doesn’t have the same amount of lift as an underwire bra.

This Vanity Fair Beauty Back wireless bra features supportive contour cups, a tall back and smoothing sides to help conceal bulges and ripples, and a banded frame that provides extra support.
