It's no secret that those of us with a larger cup size often suffer the aches and pains that come along with it. Neck, back, and shoulder strain coupled with poor posture can leave you feeling less than your best. A regular old bra often won't do the trick in correcting these back support issues, and we need to turn to more supportive options. Spoiler alert — there's no need to go searching for corsets! Say hello to posture bras.

Posture bras work to provide added posture support for those of us who suffer from the weight of a cup size. Most posture bras are full coverage bras that feature a front-closure, wide straps, and an extra-wide back design for support that redistributes bust weight. There are both underwire and wireless posture bras to try, depending on your preference and the level of back support you want.

If you find yourself needing more posture support, we recommend swapping out your everyday bras for posture bra styles. Keep reading the article below for our roundup of the most supportive plus size posture bras to help posture issues.

Price: $55

Review: 4.3/5 Stars

The MagicLift Front-Close Posture Back Bra features an extra-wide racerback with criss-crossed back panels that ease back and shoulder pain by redistributing the weight more evenly and off of your shoulders. This bra features MagicLift wireless cups that provide comfortable wire-free support and moderate lift for your bust, as well as wide straps that adjust in the back. Hello, all-around smoothing, comfortable support!

The front-closure makes the MagicLift Front-Closure Posture Back Bra easy to get on and off without any added shoulder or back strain. In band sizes 36 to 58 and cup sizes B through K, this bra provides comfortable posture support in any size. Here's why some of our customers love this style:

“I absolutely love this bra! I was a 42H when I found this bra and I've never had such comfortable support and pain relief. Not only does this help with posture, it also helps with shaping and smoothing. The straps stay in place, no digging, no bulges. Whether it's going to work, play, staying in or going out — this is a bra that can do it all!” - Crystal

“After years and a small fortune buying bras that are uncomfortable and never fit right, I have found a bra that I love. I am busty and overweight and each breast is a different size due to cancer. With this bra you can't tell the difference. It smooths back fat and supports. Most importantly the straps stay on the shoulder. This fits perfectly and is comfortable.” - Janet S.

“It's rare to find a front closure bra for larger women that fits great and feels supportive. It takes the strain off my back and allows for better posture.” - Tina M.

If you want a posture bra that offers the added comfort of wireless cups while still encouraging good posture, we recommend this posture support bra.
