This plus size bra post has been several months in the making. As a card carrying “I’m not wearing that thing” no-bra-club member, this post was a little intimidating. I wanted to find the most comfortable, supportive, versatile plus size bras out there – and I think I did!

About a year ago I gave up on bras. I couldn’t find ones that fit, sizing was always all over the place when I would try them on, they suffocated my back rolls, and often times didn’t even make my breasts look spectacular. I was tired of struggling to find a plus size bra I liked. I made the switch to bralettes and never looked back. And then I found Brayola.

Brayola approached me and told me about their website and database of bras. They collect info about your favorite bra and what sizes you wear, and compare it to other people who have provided the same info. This allows them to recommend tons of bras that are perfectly suited to you and your bra size! Pretty genius, right?

The bra seen in the pictures above is my pick from Brayola, and I love it. They have options up to a 58 band size, and an I cup. Yeah – no joke! Check out my other pick from Brayola and my this-bra-doesn’t-make-me-lose-my-mind favorites down below!

Goddess Full Figure Soft Cup Bra

This bra is an ultimate favorite of mine. It’s wire free, really pretty when on (trust me on this), and goes up to a size 56H! The seams of the bra are larger than standard bras, and they don’t irritate my back rolls. The fabric is soft and the clasps in the back are sturdy. No surprise that this tops my list!

Curvy Couture Bras On Amazon

Curvy Couture makes some of the most comfortable bras I’ve ever put on my body. If I had to choose one bra to wear for the rest of my life it would hands down, be a Curvy Couture bra. They are sexy, and come with matching panties, and their sizing is accurate and consistent. Sizes up to 4x, prices starting around $25.

Convertible Butterfly Bra

This is now (and possibly forever?) the only strapless bra I will ever put on my body. Don’t be intimidated by the double straps – they are heaven! This bra manages to stay where you want it, not roll down, make your breasts look fabulous, and be comfortable, all at the same time. It may be an actual miracle. I haven’t worn a strapless plus size bra in years and I can comfortably wear this all day. My only complaint? It doesn’t come in more colors.

Lace Back Smoother Underwire Bra

Have you ever tried something on and just thought “wow that is so smart!!!”? That’s how I feel about the design of this bra. it’s a obvious solution to back smoothing – just make the back of the bra larger so it doesn’t irritate your shoulders. So simple and so effective, and so comfortable! Avenue is definitely lacking in size range on this one, but if you can get it in your size it’s well worth it!

The Best Bralettes 

After the fall of my beloved Lovesick, I had to search for new bralettes. These are what I wear almost exclusively in my every day life. I don’t generally bother with underwires or padding, and I’m quite picky about the durability and fit of my lacy little bralette numbers. Hands down, the best ones are from Torrid. They have tons of different styles and colors and most go up to size 6.

Glamorise Elegance Underwire Lace Bra

Glamorise carries bras up to size 50G and I’m obsessed with pretty much all of them. This one takes the cake for it’s pretty detailing and delicate pink touches – because we don’t find much of that in plus size bras! This bra is comfortable and super supportive and I was able to make it more than 5 hours in this bra – which is a pretty amazing accomplishment for me!

Light Impact Sports Bra

The brand behind this bra, Leading Lady, has been blowing my mind with their affordable options. I tried 3 bras from them and loved them all, but I’ve got to give it up to their sports bra for being the most versatile. If you’re a “sports bras only” daily wear-er this is the bra for you. Supportive but not cumbersome, and sizes that go all the way up to 56G!!!!

Whew. After 3 months of trying on plus size bras and seeing if I can withstand a day with one on I’m proud to say that these are the winners. There are a lot of duds out there but I feel really confident saying that these will have your little heart jumping for joy!

If you haven’t tried Brayola’s online personal bra shop now is the time! Tell them your favorite bra and they’ll recommend the best bras for your plus size bod!

    Sounds great, I went and tried the finder tool. Couldn’t get past the first step, they don’t even list Catherine’s or Cacique (Lane Bryant).

    • fatgirlflow June 28, 2017 at 3:30 pm

      I just went through with a 46DDD lane bryant bra to test it and it worked and gave several recommendations. If you’re searching for Cacique type in “lane bryant” and it will pop up!

    I’ve had my eye on Brayola for a while. I know that you hate bras as much as I do (team bralette all the way!) so I’m happy that you wrote this piece! Thanks, Corissa!

  • Jessica June 28, 2017 at 5:03 pm

    Thanks Corissa! I’m actually looking for extra padded bras cause my girls aren’t as proportional as the rest of me do i need them to look that way lol I used to buy the “added cup” bras from lane Bryant but they no longer make them…and I’ve looked online for anything similar…and I come up with nothing. Do you have any suggestions that I may be overlooking? Thanks!

  • Crystal June 28, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    Any one know if these come in small cup sizes as well? I’m a B cup and as a bigger gal it’s super hard to find fitting bras with some padding that don’t look so old ladyish. The struggle is real :/

    • fatgirlflow June 29, 2017 at 1:36 pm

      Many of them do! Definitely check out the White bra with pink detailing!!!! <3

  • Pamela Homan June 28, 2017 at 7:34 pm

    Ive never heard of a bralette before, why are they so much different?

    • fatgirlflow June 29, 2017 at 1:35 pm

      They’re just like a wireless bra/sports bra hybrid and they’re made for COMFORT… which is the bees knees in my opinion 😉

  • AmyO June 29, 2017 at 9:49 pm

    Just, thank you. ❤️

  • Megan June 30, 2017 at 9:06 am

    This is great! I really need to find a comfortable bra – this came at the perfect time, ha ha!

  • Susan July 13, 2017 at 2:14 pm

    I’m positive Glamorise goes higher than a G. I’ve been wearing a 50 I for a while in one of their styles. You are lucky to have gotten to try all those bras. At $50 a pop, I am very careful about what I order.

    Now we need to get swimsuit makers to go higher than a DD.

    Thanks for the blog. Very helpful.

    I have a rare-ish plus size gal problem: itty bitty boobs. Seriously, Lane Bryant B-cups are waaaay too big for me but most large band sizes don’t come in small cup sizes. So I make do with cups that gape and gap and breasts that feel that they get no support, just modesty.

    I am new to this site, and need to buy daughter a lot of clothes, How do I find them ? Do I click on each site you advertise

    • fatgirlflow August 6, 2017 at 11:36 am

      yes! you can click on them and it will bring you to where you can buy it.

  • #BraProblems January 23, 2019 at 7:08 pm

    I have the opposite problem. I am a 36 G. so hard to find bras with a large enough cup and small enough band.

  • Coriana February 6, 2019 at 4:59 pm

    Same here I’m a 38 I “supposedly”. Have you found a good brand? This is so stressful. I’m starting to become bruised even more than I already am. I can’t seem to find the right bras. They give up on me in the stores.

  • Patricia February 22, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    i am a short, woman but a large woman. i’ve come to think my problem is that underwire bras have a wire that is too long for my torso length. i have tried so many, soma, wachovia, all diff sizes, all diff styles. i need the support of wire, but who makes one that will fit ME?


    • fatgirlflow February 22, 2019 at 7:08 pm

      hmmm I wonder if the wire is too small if perhaps your cup size is smaller than you think and your band size is actually larger??

  • Lorrie March 16, 2019 at 11:41 am

    I need a bar that will LIFT AND SEPARATE AND MINIMIZE BACK FAT PLEASE. I’m tired of my boobs sitting in my lap. ?

  • Heather May 16, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    Do be bralette’s give much support and lift? I usually wear sports bras but wouldn’t love something with more support.

    • fatgirlflow May 17, 2019 at 8:36 am

      not much lift but they do feel supportive imo!

  • Virginia October 11, 2019 at 8:42 am

    I’m a 52 b cup but I need something that supports that under arm boob I can’t find anything that’s strong enough to hold that in.

  • Lisa Walker October 17, 2019 at 9:13 am

    I am trying to find a bra that will fit a student of mine. she is size 66B, any suggestions?

  • Richa November 24, 2019 at 11:40 pm

    Choosing the right bra for every girl is always a struggle. Thanks for listing out the best plus size bras.
