Which kind of bra is best for large breasts?

If you have a big bust, then you know how important a supportive bra is (it’s arguably the most essential factor to consider when bra shopping). 

Larger busted girlies can benefit from our D-G Bras and Plus Size Bras. These bras are designed to offer exceptional support, with specialised features to keep you secure and lifted, all day long. Special features include inner cup side slings, power-mesh back wings, and additional hook-and-eye closures.

You can choose from a range of styles, each with its own benefits. Some of these include; Contour bras – to lift and round out your breasts. Full coverage bras – to minimise cleavage and spillage. Unlined and non-padded bras – provide ultimate comfort and support without increasing your bust size. Or sports bras – extreme support during physical activity.

8 tips for bra shopping when you have a large bust

1. Make sure you know your size

The key to successful bra shopping is making sure you know your correct bra size beforehand. If you need a helping hand, come in-store for a bra fitting with our team of Bendon Fit Experts. We can help you find your perfect size and guide you through the bra shopping process. Since about 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size (crazy, right?), getting a professional fitting is the best way to ensure your bra is the right size for you.

If you’re too busy to come in for a fitting, use our sizing chart and a trusty tape measure instead. With the correct measurements, you should be able to confidently purchase a well-fitting bra.

2. Pay attention to the band and straps

It’s a common misconception that larger busts need a heavy-duty fabric for optimal support. However, you don’t need to limit yourself these days—there are so many supportive options on the market that can be dainty and lightweight.

You can enjoy gorgeous, detailed lace or sheer styles just like everyone else! Bonus: These thinner fabrics may also be more comfortable and offer greater breathability for the girls. As long as the bra’s band fits well and there is good wing support, these lighter materials are more than fine for larger busted women, so don’t be afraid to try different fabrics.

3. Take your breast shape into account

Finding the right bra when you have a bigger bust isn’t all about size; you also need to take shape into account. All breasts are unique, so it pays to be familiar with your individual breast shape. Each bra serves a different purpose, so knowing your breast shape will help you find the perfect bra to enhance your appearance. 

For example, if you have large bell-shaped breasts, you may be best suited to a full-coverage bra style. Likewise, women with large round breasts may be more comfortable in a balconette-style bra. We’ve covered the 9 most common breast shapes on our blog, so head here if you want to learn more about your breast shape.

4. Know how the bra should fit beforehand

So many women are wearing ill-fitting bras and don’t even realise it. This is especially true for women with large breasts, who might not know or see their size offered and settle for squeezing into a bra that’s too small. To avoid wearing a bra that doesn’t fit you, keep an eye out for these common signs of an ill-fitting bra:

  • Spilling out over the top, side, or underneath the cup
  • Gaping between your body and the bra
  • Underband is too big and riding up
  • Underwire is uncomfortable and digs into the skin
  • Straps are too tight or too loose

It’s a common misconception that larger busts need a heavy-duty fabric for optimal support. However, you don’t need to limit yourself these days—there are so many supportive options on the market that can be dainty and lightweight.

You can enjoy gorgeous, detailed lace or sheer styles just like everyone else! Bonus: These thinner fabrics may also be more comfortable and offer greater breathability for the girls. As long as the bra’s band fits well and there is good wing support, these lighter materials are more than fine for larger busted women, so don’t be afraid to try different fabrics.

6. Research stores that have larger bra sizes

Before you set off on your bra shopping expedition, take the time to research stores beforehand to make sure they stock the size you need. At Bendon, we offer a wide range of bra styles with nearly 90 different sizes, ranging from an AA to a G cup. We want women of every size to feel confident, which is why we offer extended sizes. Our larger sizes provide extra support that’s ideal for large bust sizes, including inner cup side slings, power-mesh back wings, and additional hook-and-eye-closures.

7. Always opt for quality

When bra shopping, it pays to invest in quality! A good, supportive bra will last you so much longer than a cheap, poor-quality one—saving you time and money in the long run. Not to mention, a well-constructed bra is crucial for those with bigger boobs, as a good fit can help reduce back pain (if you know, you know). A quality bra can also provide your breasts with better shape and support, helping you feel confident in your day-to-day life.

8. Dress strategically when trying on bras in-store

If you’re looking for an everyday bra to wear with loose-fit shirts or underneath jumpers, you won’t have to worry too much about what you wear to go shopping. You're set as long as it’s easy to whip on and off in the changing rooms. 

However, if you are shopping for a bra to go with a particular outfit, then it’s worth it to bring that outfit with you for try-on purposes. For instance, if you want a bra that looks good under tight-fitting clothing, bring a tight-fitted shirt with you to ensure it works for you.
