the three bras you need if you’re big busted


after 17+ years of bra-shopping, I’ve finally found the three bras that flatter, fit, and support my large bust. and now, being pregnant and having even a bigger bust, these bras are still standing the test.

I’m always asked what kind of bras I wear, so I figured I would make a complete blog post about them. here they are:

for strapless tops & dresses

the Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra by Wacoal

the reason this bra is amazing is because it really secures firmly to your rib cage, so it won’t slide down. it has three clasps in the back and offers amazing support. it’s convertible, so you can even add straps if you want to – for racerback tops, one shoulder tops, etc. you can even wear it as an everyday, regular bra, which I have many times!

for everyday

Ultimate Side Smoother Underwire T-Shirt Bra by Wacoal

since you need to make sure you have enough support for those tatas, you have to clasp on the bra nice and tight around your rib cage – which can often result in some unsightly pudge hanging over – like a muffin top on your back, not cute. this bra conceals all of that, is breathable, and I think gives great cleavage without smooshing you! I’ve been wearing this bra for years.

for working out

Underwire Sports Bra by Panache (You can also order it on Amazon in more colors, here)

hands down the best bra for working out for a big bust, ever! Panache never fails – I wore this bra training for my half marathon last year (i.e. LOTS of bouncing up and down) and it held me in tight. I can’t recommend it enough. while it’s not necessary if you’re doing a low impact workout like yoga, I still love it because I just feel so ‘protected.’

the next phase will be for nursing, so I’m sure I’ll be writing a full blog post on that!

    I’ve recently become a ThirdLove convert. Especially for their strapless bra. I’ve NEVER had a strapless bra work for me (32DDD problems) and theirs stays put all day long even in the sweaty summer ????

      Ah I tried their bras and they didn’t work for me! 🙁 🙁

    For nursing bras the only bra I could find without wire ( very important to avoid mastitis) in size 34 f/g was bravado nursing bra style bliss. It works great, is thick so your nipples don’t show through and I’ve got their tank which I sleep in and gives great support. Its the only sytle I bought nursing for nursing my second kid

    I’m a 34H and the Panache sports bra literally changed my life. I used to think I couldn’t run because I never found a sports bra that supported my bust. Now I can do ANY exercise in that bra. Amazing. I’m looking forward to checking out the other two suggestions. Thank you!
