Support bras are designed to provide full coverage, lift, and support. A support bra provides full coverage and lift to prevent breasts from sagging. Support bras are also comfortable and stylish have become a favorite for many women for this reason.
When it comes to finding the perfect bra for you, having one with ample support is crucial. There are countless bra styles that offer ample support for women with large breasts, including comfortable wireless bras, super-supportive underwire bras, and even sports bras. It simply comes down to personal preference on the type of support and coverage you prefer. Keep reading below for our picks for the top five best support bras for big boobs.
What makes a good support bra?
A good bra is one that offers ample support, comfort, and fits to a T. Whatever type of bra you prefer, be it a wireless bra or one that has an underwire, having ample support is key, especially for women who have large cup sizes. The last thing you want is an ill-fitting, flimsy bra that leaves you feeling less than supported.
Here at Glamorise, our bras are always designed with comfortable support in mind. Our MagicLift bras feature our innovative wire-free design that crisscrosses under and over the bust for secure support and a reinforced inner-bust band that does the heavy lifting, no wire required.
If you prefer an underwire bra, our signature WonderWire bras take support to new heights. Glamorise underwire bras feature a padded underwire with an extra layer of cushion to prevent wire poke, so all you'll feel is the support, never the wire.
For exercising or even everyday wear, sports bras are a great choice for when you need the most support you can get. Sports bras are designed to prevent painful boob bounce during higher-impact activities. Glamorise carries both wire-free and underwire sport styles that provide secure support for women with larger cup sizes, both in and out of the gym.
Like other bras, there are a few things to consider when shopping for support bras:
Support Level: Consider the amount of support you need from your bra. Where do you plan to wear this bra? Do you need a lightweight, everyday bra, or are you looking for a supportive bra to wear during higher-impact activities or workouts? Depending on the amount of support you need, consider whether you want an underwire bra or wireless bra. Generally speaking, an underwire bra will provide more support than a wireless bra.
Comfort: When shopping for a support bra, consider whether it is a comfortable bra for you. A good bra will be made of buttery soft fabric and have wide, adjustable straps that are customizable to your fit. Some women also do not like rigid underwires and prefer the comfort a wireless bra provides.
Design: A support bra does not need to skimp on style. There are beautiful lace bras that still provide the support you need. Consider what style you are looking for, whether it be a T-shirt bra, lacy plunge bra, or a full-coverage bra.
