Just like the LBD, the classic black bra should be a staple in every woman’s collection. When you wake up in the morning, reaching for a black bra is almost second nature because it is such a versatile, flattering basic. 

Whether you're going for a night out with your girlfriends or heading to the office, a black bra suits every occasion. To help you find that perfect black bra you can’t wait to add to your lingerie collection, we’ve compiled a list of 14 of our favourites. From everyday basics to super sexy black bras, there’s guaranteed to be a style that suits your needs.

Why do you need a black bra?

You might be wondering, what’s the deal with owning a black bra or two? Well, never underestimate the power of a good basic. In addition to being sleek and easy to reach for, black bras are ripe with other benefits. 

For one, black bras are easy to keep looking clean for longer, so they’re likely to last you through plenty of wares and gentle wash cycles.. It’s also good to note that black bras will never go out of style, so you don’t have to worry about trends or shifting style preferences.

Whether it’s smooth or lacey, a black bra always looks classy with corporate outfits. On the flip side, they can also look sexy, making a black bra the perfect lingerie choice for dates or nights out. Not only are black bras practical, but they’re the best choice for wearing underneath dark clothing.

1. Best black bra for everyday wear

When searching for a go-to everyday bra, you can’t go wrong with a t-shirt bra. A t-shirt bra is perfect for everyday wear since it has smooth, moulded cups that are comfortable and seamless. Wearing a black t-shirt bra under dark-coloured fitted tops will work an absolute treat since the seamless design prevents any pesky bra lines from showing.

At Bendon, there is a range of t-shirt bras available to suit different tops. For example, the Lovable Seamless Soft Cup Bra has a plunging neckline, allowing you to pair it with low-cut v-neck style shirts without any unwanted peek-a-boo bra moments.

2. Best black sports bra

Looking for some extra support during your workouts? Keep everything firmly in place with a specially designed sports bra. Black sports bras are a great colour choice as the dark colour hides the appearance of sweat and the bras don’t become dingy over time. It also goes well with virtually any athletic bottoms you own. 

One of our personal favourite sports bras is the Bendon Sports Sport U/W Bra. With thick supportive straps, side boning for additional support and a full underwired cup, you can exercise without worrying about a thing.

3. Best black bra for larger busts

If you have struggled in the past to find a supportive bra for your larger bust, listen up! The Fayreform Sculpt Contour Plunge Bra is a flattering lingerie staple that provides the lift and support you want. Designed for cup sizes ranging from 12D to 14G, this one is for all our larger busted ladies.

With a plunging neckline, you can easily pair this bra with sexy low-cut dresses or tops. It’s a versatile choice you can wear daily or save for nights out – which is how the best black bras should be! Check out our guide on everything you need to know about plus size bras for all the styles and cuts to flatter and support your bust.

4. Best black bra for small busts

When you have breasts on the smaller side, you can get away with lightweight bras that don’t have underwire. Lean into the comfortable options like bralettes or wireless bras you can wear day in and day out. 

Styles such as the Me by Bendon Hold Me Wire Free Bra are lightly lined for comfortable support and lift while giving a smooth finish under clothing. Not only is this bra super sleek and flattering, but it features fully adjustable straps so you can always achieve your perfect fit.

5. Best strapless black bra for small busts

A reliable black strapless bra is an absolute must for rocking off-the-shoulder tops or strapless dresses. If you’ve had a hard time finding that perfect strapless bra in the past, we’ve got you covered with our Ultimate Guide to Strapless Bras.

For sizes 10A – 14E, there’s the Pleasure State Fmo Smooth Strapless Bra With padded cups, power mesh back linings and wires, you can still achieve the level of support you need with a strapless design. Whether you are dancing the night away or enjoying a coffee with friends, this strapless bra is one you can rely on.

6. Best strapless black bra for large busts

If you have larger breasts, odds are your journey to finding the right strapless bra has been a tough one. But not to worry, the Fayreform Enchant Strapless Bra fits sizes 10D to 16G, offering optimal support with the underwire frame. The silicone band stops the bra from slipping down during the day or night, while the soft fabric makes it comfy for all-day wear. Find out what makes D-G cup bras different from regular bras in our handy guide.

7. Best black bra for ultimate comfort

Some days are all about putting your comfort first. Think lazy Sundays spent unwinding wearing your favourite pair of trackies and ugg boots. Why would you spoil the fun with an uncomfy bra?

On those days, reach for the Bendon Comfit Collection Wirefree Bra. It’s truly designed with comfort in mind, featuring wire-free support and double-layered fabric cups for a flexible fit.

8. Best black bra for feeling sexy

When we think sexy, one of the first fabrics we’re drawn to is lace—specifically, black lace. Seen as the pinnacle of femininity, you really can’t go wrong with this beautiful material.

The Sofia Underwire Bra is an amazing option if you want a timeless, sexy design. This intricate lace bra has a five-piece cup and underwire structure that helps create a gorgeous shape.

10. Best black maternity bra

When you are pregnant or breastfeeding, practicality, support, and comfort come first. Finding a bra that checks all these boxes might seem impossible, but our Ultimate Guide to Maternity Bras will have you feeling confident in no time. 

One maternity bra our customers love is the Bendon Nurture Maternity Bra. The lace cups are soft and absorbent, helping with any leakage (the black colour is also great for that). Plus, it’s a highly adjustable fit, so you can alter it depending on what stage you’re at.

11. Best black bra for barely-there support

Do you want a supportive bra that’s so lightweight and comfortable you forget you even have it on? You’ll love the Me by Bendon Morning Lola Underwire Bra with its sexy yet relaxed style that accentuates your neckline. The underwire and double dart provide the support and shape you want while remaining super comfortable. The sensual striped lace is a unique design that differs from other black bras you might already have, bringing something totally different to your lingerie collection.

12. Best black bra for a sheer moment.

If you want to fully embrace your body, going for a sheer bra is a good place to start. The Me by Bendon Audacious Underwire Bra Black has sheer, lightweight mesh cups that offer a little peek-a-boo moment. It also creates smooth lines underneath clothing and has a high cup shape for optimum support.

13. Best black bra for full coverage

Accentuate your curves to the fullest with a black full coverage bra. Your breasts will look full and shapely—plus, you won’t have to worry about bra lines showing through your shirt. You can also wave goodbye to any spillage over the top of the cup – just make sure you know your proper cup size for the best fit possible. 

If you are in search of the best full coverage bra on the market, we highly recommend something like the Bendon Rita Full Coverage Contour Bra. With extra supportive straps and a comfortable design, you can embrace your curves in all the right ways.v

14. Best black bra for lift and shape

Want a perky chest with a flattering shape? All you need is the right bra. For the best lift and shape, we recommend you go for styles such as the Pleasure State Liaison Contour Balconette Bra. This stunning embroidered design not only looks beautiful, but it offers impressive lift, support, and hold all day long. This black and gold bra features a secret service lining for hold and shape, while the contour balconette cup gives lift and natural cleavage.

Tips for finding the best bra for you

As women, we all come in different shapes and sizes. Because of this, finding your bra size isn’t a one size fits all scenario. Finding the best bra for your breast shape is super important, as different bra styles will help accentuate your shape better than others. It’s also true that ill-fitting bras can cause more issues than just annoyance, so you want to be sure all the bras in your collection fit you correctly.
