If you thought shopping for plus-size clothing was hard, wait until you hear about bra shopping as a plus-sized person. It’s a true journey. Many lingerie stores, like Victoria’s Secret, don’t even carry extended sizes, and too often, the bras that do come in our sizes look more like medical devices than cute lingerie. But these days, there are a lot more plus-size bra options out there. And yes, there *are* wireless bras that can work for larger sizes! In fact, some of these bralette options will suprise you with how comfortable and supportive they are. But there are also several underwire options if you’re looking for more traditional support. From frisky lingerie to a classic bra you can wear under everything from work blouses to t-shirts, here are some plus-size bras you should check out.
Dk Active Tallulah Crop
This high-support sports bra has a compression fit that makes it suitable for any workout or activity. It also has removable padding for a customized fit. One shopper said that it’s a “great sports bra.” They added, “I have had a lot of trouble over the past couple of years trying to find a crop that actually has support, so I don’t have to wear a regular bra underneath, but this one actually supports without an additional bra.”
Cantiq Mesh Bralette
If you’re looking for indie lingerie that actually comes in your size, check out Cantiq, a designer in Los Angeles. They have strappy and mesh bralette options that are actually fashionable and sexy, and their styles go up to a size 6XL, which fits up to a K cup, with a band that stretches from 41″-58″. The extended sizes have additional support, like wider straps, but they’re still totally fashionable and, well, hot.
Cacique Full Coverage Bra
Cacique is Lane Bryant’s lingerie brand, and while you may roll your eyes at LB, Cacique actually has a ton of bra styles to choose from, from super trendy bralettes to classics. Some of their large-cup styles go up to a K-cup, and we love the Extra Soft Lightly Lined Full Coverage Bra, which comes in band sizes from 36-50 and cup sizes from C-H.
Girlfriend Collective Tank Bra
The struggle to find a comfortable, supportive plus-size sports bra is real, but Girlfriend Collective has you covered. They have a variety of styles of sports bras going up to size 6XL. We like the Dylan Tank Bra, which can be worn on its own as a sports bra when working out, as a crop top, or under clothes as a bra. For size reference, the model is a 48H and wears a size 3XL in this style.
Skims Scoop Neck Bra
Did you know that Skims goes up to a size 4x? Their “Fits Everybody” Scoop Neck Bra obviously won’t actually fit every body, but it will offer up wireless support to those who wear up to a size 4x.
Goddess Kayla Underwire Bra
If you have a horrible time finding underwire bras that you don’t want to rip off and throw accross the room immediately, this full-coverage bra from Goddess could do the trick. It’s a surprisingly comfortable bra, even though it’s very supportive. Whether you’re a 38M or a 46K, they’ve got you covered.
Prima Donna Madison Full Cup Bra
If you’re looking for something on the sexier side – say, for Valentine’s Day, or just because you like to look fancy, then check out this lacy bra from Prima Donna. It comes in sizes 32D-46H, and in several colors, including this fiery red.
With sizes up to 46H, Curvy Couture’s mesh plunge T-shirt bra is a comfortable option that you can wear under pretty much anything. It’s also pretty affordable for a plus-size option, though it is unfortunate they only go up to a cup size H. Still, it’s better than what many bra companies are offering for their plus-size customers.
Glamorise Plus Size Wirefree Sports Bra
If you hate wired bras, you’re not alone, and these days, it’s easier than ever to find wire-free plus-size options that are actually supportive. Unlike a cheap, stretchy racerback sports bra that puts tons of pressure on the back of your neck and shoulders, this sports bra with regular straps and a hook-and-eye closure offers lots of pain-free support. This wireless bra from Glamorise comes in sizes 34B-50I, which is one of the best size ranges we’ve seen, and you can get it on Amazon.
