Good Bras for Large Breasts

Keep your large chest supported by wearing the right bra.

Sure your large breasts are bangin', but unless you have the right bra on, they won't look their best. Some bras don't offer enough support, which leaves your girls looking droopy. Other bras don't fit correctly, which can give you with a deformed-looking bosom. But as long as you rock the proper bra, your girls will look sexy, perky and their very best.

Don't Full Yourself

Yes, demi and balconette bras are cute, but they won't do a thing for your large chest. To keep your big girls under wraps, you need to go with a full coverage bra, says stylist and author Jene Luciani. If not, you'll end up with the dreaded "double bubble," where each breast bulges over your bra and leaves you with a less than sexy bulge.

Supportive Shoulder Straps

Forget wearing bras with itty bitty straps; you need wide straps that are comfortable and supportive. Skinny straps do nothing in the way of support of your large chest and can cause your whole bosom to hang out lower. Additionally, those straps can cut into your skin, warns Luciani. So look for bras with straps that keep your girls supported.

Unbelievable Underwire

If your girls are size "D" or larger, you've got to get yourself some underwire. Underwire holds them up and gives them the support they need and desire. If not, your girls will look saggy, which is so not sexy. The underwire holds them up and creates sexy cleavage, which is perfect when you want to wear a low-cut shirt.

Look for Large Bra Lines

A good rule of thumb when it comes to finding a bra that will work for your large chest is to go with a bra line that caters to ladies with large bosoms, says Luciani. These manufacturers are likely more sensitive to the needs of a big chested girl and make bras that feel and look better. Luciani says Frederick's of Hollywood, Panache, Fantasie by Freya and Bali all make bras for large-breasted babes. When you can go all day and not feel your bra, you'll be thankful you went with this type.
