The Best Bras for Big Boobs

The Best Bras for Big Boobs

Finding a comfortable, well-fitting bra for big boobs that is actually pretty can be a real challenge. Most full-busted babes have lived through some less than fab shopping adventures and have the dreaded full-coverage 'grandma' bras to prove it (nothing against grandma - she deserves pretty bras more than anyone). Well, no more! Here are our tips for finding the best bras for big boobs and some of our current faves...

Know Your Size

This one's really important. If you're not wearing the right size, you're probably dealing with digging straps, jabby underwires, cup spillage or all of the above. Your bra size changes over time, so we recommend booking a fitting every 1-2 years and certainly after any weight gain or loss. A professional fitter will find your proper size and can recommend the best styles for you. Even if it turns out that your bra size hasn't changed since your last fitting, it's a good idea to replace some of your hardest working bras every couple of years, so the appointment won't be for nothing!

Check out our at-home fit guide or book a fitting at our Toronto location. 

Know if it fits

This is harder than it sounds. How many of us have bras we've worn a handful of times that live in the back of our drawers because they're just. not. comfortable.  Oh, that's right, all of us. If a bra fits you, these 5 things should be happening: 1 - the band is snug, but not uncomfortable, 2 - the gore (piece between the cups) is flush against your body, not floating, 3 - the cups fit your breasts seamlessly (no gaping, no spilling), 4 - the straps feel secure, but are not digging into your shoulders, and 5 - if there's an underwire, it stops where your breast tissue ends.

Move around in the bra; lift your arms, sit down, stand back up again and see how it feels. If it's not super comfortable after wearing it for five minutes, you can bet it will be hell after 8 hours. Pass!

Know what styles work

When it comes to lingerie preferences, there are no rules about what looks best on big boobs or small boobs or no boobs – wear whatever feels good, you do you! That said, there are some styles that have earned some love from for our full-busted babes.

Here are some of our bestselling styles for DD+ bras:
