Whether you’re planning an Autumn wedding, a tropical Winter getaway, or festive holiday cocktail attire, you’ll need the best plus size strapless bra to show it all off.
Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that being fuller figured means you should be covered up! Dare to flaunt your fabulous curves in strapless styles that draw attention to your best assets (that enviable cleavage, those beautiful shoulders, that radiant face).
In part 2 of our series on the best plus sized bras, we found the very best plus size strapless bras that will lift and support no matter how much twirling you do on the dance floor. There’s no need to feel intimidated by the term “plus size.” Plus size just means an expanded range of sizes as individual as the woman who wears them. We found styles specifically designed for women beyond a 38 band.
With so many online shopping options, don’t feel like you need to buy the biggest band and cup size at the mall to squeeze into. So many women may need a band of 40 or 42 but a cup size of only B-C. You may be surprised after getting a fitting at what size you are, and how many choices you really do have. So don’t worry what the tag says. Instead celebrate how gorgeous you look in the best strapless bra for you!
These 10 best plus size strapless bras go up to a 50 band, with cup sizes B-I. Many are also convertible styles (with detachable straps that can be worn traditional, halter, or criss-cross) giving you a lot of versatility. Look for cups that are multi-seamed for shape or feature inner boning for support. A silicone lining along the edges of cups, wings, and/or bands help to make sure things stay where they’re supposed to. Bands should be firm and fit snugly across the back.
Many of our favorite strapless styles are bustiers, longlines, or torsolettes where the support is reinforced along the torso helping to keep the girls front and center. These styles have the added benefit of smoothing the midriff for a smooth (and sexy!) look under clothes.Elomi Convertible Plus Size Bustier Band sizes up to 48, cup sizes DD-HH Available in black or cream Image credit: Bare Necessities Goddess Lace Longline Plus Size Bra Band sizes up to 50, with cup sizes B-FF Available in black, cream, or white Image credit: HerRoom Dominique Longline Plus Size Torsolette Band sizes up to 48, with cup sizes A-F Available in cream, black, and white Image credit: Bare Necessities Va Bien Plus Size Strapless Bustier Band sizes up to 48, with cup sizes B-DD Available in white Image credit: Bare Necessities Va Bien Ultra-Lift Plus Size Strapless Bra In band sizes up to 46, with cup sizes B-I Available in black or beige Image credit: Bare Necessities Elomi Maria Plus Size Strapless Bra In band sizes up to 48, with cup sizes DD-HH Available in black or cream Image credit: Bare Necessities Elomi Convertible Plus Size Strapless Bra In band sizes up to 48, with cup sizes E-GG Available in black or beige Image credit: HerRoom Goddess Marilyn Plus Size Strapless Bra In band sizes up to 48, with cup sizes C-G Available in beige or black Image credit: Bigger Bras Elila Molded Plus Size Strapless Bra In band sizes up to 46, with cup sizes E-I Available in beige Image credit: Bigger Bras Cacique Multi-way Plus Size Strapless Bra In band sizes up to 46, with cup sizes B-G Available in cream Image credit: Lane Bryant
