The Best & Most Supportive Wireless Bras for Large DD+ Breasts: An Honest Review

For as long as I remember, I’ve had to wear a wired bra. Or at the very least, my preference has been a wired bra. It’s supportive, lifting, and separating. The only problem? It’s just not that comfortable. Yes, I’ve had a handful of underwire bras that I could happily wear all day, but even still, it was such a relief to take it off at night. Though touted for comfort and even breast health, wireless bras just couldn’t hack it for me and my H-cup boobs. These ladies are heavy and need as much support as a floating shelf stuffed to the brim with hardcovered coffee table books. 

But then I had a baby and chose to breastfeed, so wireless was my only option. It took a ton of research, money, and trial and error, but I found a brand that worked for me (more on that below) for this stage of my life. Fast forward a year and a half, and even though my nursing journey is basically over, it’s hard to imagine going back to the prison that is the underwire on a daily basis. 

Surely the wireless bra game has come a long way in the last decade since I bought a mesh bralette that was the equivalent of using pantyhose as a chest sling (read: not good)…right? Finding out was going to take some testing, so I researched all the “best wireless bra” articles I could find that seemed legitimate, dug up a few other brands on my own, and also tapped into an old faithful, all in the name of finding the best wireless bra on the market for large breasts. Because if MY boobs could give the seal of approval to a wireless bra, trust me…you know it’s likely going to be able to hold up your girls…and then some. 

There were some companies that look promising, but they didn’t offer an extended cup size range. Everything tested here checked the box of having G+ sizes, or at least an equivalent in a S-XXL(ish) range. I wore each one for at least a few hours, trying to see how they performed in regular life. There were some good ones, there were some flops (as in floppy boobs), and then, there were a few standouts, including my new all-time favorite. 

Each bra has a photo of me wearing it under a standard cotton T-shirt so you can see the shape, how visible it is under clothing, and the lift. I’m also including the image of the product from the manufacturer’s website. I scored each one for shape (does it make me feel rounded, pointy, too widespread, too pushed out, etc.), lift (how high does it bring them up), support (how bouncy or shifty things felt in there), and comfort (self-explanatory). There are also notes on sizing, my overall thoughts, and a final score for each. 

While everyone has a preference for how a bra fits and feels, I hope my notes help guide you to at least find a few options to try out for yourself. 

Read on for my honest, real-life review of 12 wireless bras best suited (or not) for large (DD+) boobs.

Where to Buy: Amazon | Price: $18

  • Shape: 5/10 – A little pointy but lifted
  • Lift: 9/10
  • Support: 9/10
  • Comfort: 6/10
  • Sizing: Ordered regular size

Boobie Real Talk: Okay, so…I wasn’t originally going to order this bra for this test, but it’s probably the most traditional wireless bra on this whole list. The OG, so to speak. Plus, it was under $20 so I couldn’t help myself. I was pleasantly surprised by this bra. I mean, is it the sexiest option here? Absolutely not. Full stop. It’s the kind of wireless bra I imagine my grandmother would have worn, but…this thing is supportive. I will say, the straps felt way too short for my petite frame even fully loosened (probably just because of my cup size), which was odd. I’m 5’3” so normally I have the opposite issue. If it weren’t for the straps, I’d wear this thing for everyday running around the house because it keeps the girls UP. The band was a tiny bit scratchy, unlike many of the seamless options I tested, but it was also new and I’m sure will wear to be a bit softer.

Overall Score: 7/10

Best For: Anyone looking for *very* good support, doesn’t mind a sort of Fem-Bot pointy boob factor, and wants to try out the wireless bra game at a low entry cost.

Where to Buy: Underoutfit | Price: $42

  • Shape: 6/10 – A bit tear-drop-like and wide set
  • Lift: 3/10
  • Support: 4/10
  • Comfort: 8/10
  • Sizing: Not sold by cup size so I followed the sizing chart to find my size. The band is super soft and stretchy, so maybe consider that when purchasing.

Boobie Real Talk: This is the first bra that showed up after ordering the whole bunch, and when I first put it on, I remember thinking, “Oh, this is soft.” This bra is maybe the softest one I tested. Seamless, stretchy, but maybe a little too stretchy to offer the support I look for. It has sewn-in pads, which I don’t love personally, though thankfully they don’t add too much bulk. If you have a strong nip game, this could be just what you’re looking for as many wireless bras tend to be a bit on the showier side in that arena. I didn’t feel like the straps were wide enough to hold up the goods and they rolled a little bit from the pressure. Aside from that, it’s a very comfortable bra without a ton of lift. Good for lounging, sleeping, traveling, and anything that doesn’t require a lot of action. 

Overall Score: 5/10

Best For: Someone who prefers a lighter touch from a bra (nothing overly tight around the rib cage), wants soft, pillowy fabric, needs some padding, and doesn’t need a military-grade lift as I do.

Where to Buy: Knix | Price: $42

  • Shape: 6/10 – Not a ton of side support but gives a nice, rounded shape anyway (but a little droopy)
  • Lift: 5/10
  • Support: 5/10
  • Comfort: 8/10
  • Sizing: Follow sizing chart to convert your cup and band size and consider sizing up. My cups felt one size too small.

Boobie Real Talk: There’s a lot to like about this bra (and Knix in general, including the best packaging of the whole lot). The fabric is so nice—just thick and sturdy enough by soft and high quality. I love the color offerings because sometimes you want something other than black or nude, amiright? It comes with removable cups and the adjustable straps have a ton of runway to play with (basically the entire length of the strap can be pulled in tight or loosened). For me though, the sizing just wasn’t right. I like the band to sit flush against my ribcage and it ended up tucked in the underboob. A larger size might help that but might also be too loose around which is where the support comes from. This is a winner for someone in a smaller cup size than me, though.

Overall Score: 6/10

Best For: Anyone up to about a G cup size with a band smaller than 38 (if you have a larger band, the sizing could still work for you, I think!). If you’re looking for a seamless, moderately supportive yet comfortable wireless bra with very adjustable straps that moves with you and can be worn all day with good shaping, you found your match here. 

Where to Buy: Knix | Price: $58

I realized while I was putting this together that my shirt is on backward. It was hilarious, so I left it. You’ll find a few more smooth moves like this in later photos. Whoops!
  • Shape: ?/10 – The bra didn’t fit, so it’s hard to tell
  • Lift: 7/10
  • Support: 6/10
  • Comfort: 5/10
  • Sizing: Though I ordered the same size as the other Knix bra, it felt like it was two sizes smaller. The band almost didn’t clasp shut and the cups didn’t fit me at all. Size WAY up.

Boobie Real Talk: Well, I wish I could say more about this bra. With a name like the “Revolution” bra and 4.5 stars from 2,300+ reviews, I had high hopes, but the size was completely wrong for me. I also found it to wear very stiff without much give even though the fabric is so buttery soft and beautifully truly seamless. So while it didn’t even remotely fit me, let me still talk about some of the merits: Removable padding is always a plus for me, there’s a decent amount of space to adjust the straps (though even at their longest, they still felt suffocating to me), and the back band has five eyelet hooks which is super generous and a rare luxury not offered by most companies. Considering you fit in it, I’d imagine this would be so nice under your clothes as it’s very smooth. 

Overall Score: 6/10

Best For: Anyone after a bra that’s nearly invisible under even the thinnest fabrics and fits more like a bra than a sports bra. Also, hopefully, you don’t mind a stiffer band and straps (for support) and have a high tolerance for ordering multiple sizes (or finding a store) to get the right fit.  

Where to Buy: Soma | Price: $44

  • Shape: 5/10 – Flattens a bit up top and a little pointier than most (not great cleavage)
  • Lift: 5/10
  • Support: 7/10
  • Comfort: 7/10
  • Sizing: Ordered my normal American cup size but the band felt a bit snug at the loosest setting and cups felt tight.

Boobie Real Talk: Soma has always been a trusted brand for me. They make a quality product, have great in-store customer service, and a wide selection of extended sizes. I liked this bra, if only the sizing had been a better match for me. The construction is sturdy without being too stiff, there’s great side support so the boobs don’t get too droopy and wide set, and the pronounced center seam gives decent separation. I did wish the straps were more adjustable but this might be why the bra itself has good support. I did my usual bounce test and it was a comfortable shift up and down rather than a ricochet that nearly slaps my chin. The band under the breasts is narrower than most, but I didn’t mind it. If I could size up just a bit, I’d keep this and wear it on the regular. 

Overall Score: 6/10 (solid 7/10 if it had fit me better)

Best For: Someone who needs support in both the band and straps without feeling strangled, is okay with a more “utilitarian” look, and prefers a more pushed-in-and-out-from-the-sides silhouette.

Where to Buy: Kindred Braverly | Price: $45.99

  • Shape: 6/10 – Round but wide set
  • Lift: 7/10
  • Support: 7/10
  • Comfort: 8/10
  • Sizing: They offer regular, busty, and super busty sizes. The straps get thicker and more supportive the bustier the cups get. Be sure to check the size chart. 

Boobie Real Talk: I’m a little biased here. Kindred Braverly has gotten me through so much including pregnancy and breastfeeding. All of my nursing and pumping bras came from them, and I switched from my SUPER supportive wired bras to their Nellie halfway through my pregnancy. I even wrote about it being the best wireless bra I bought back in 2022 on my personal blog. After testing 11 others for this post, I don’t necessarily prefer it as I thought I would, though it’s still a solid contender. I can wear this bra all day: to sit around, to play with my toddler, to go on long walks, to hop in and out of my SUV running errands. I wouldn’t wear this with a nice dress or anything more dressed up mostly because the shaping isn’t as refined as I like with blouses, but it’s great to throw on under T-shirts and even weekend button-downs. 

Overall Score: 8/10

Best For: Someone who wants all-day comfort, medium support, and likes the option of removable pads. A fantastic option for anyone in the VERY extended size range like me who thinks a wireless bra is a pipe dream that will never come to pass. 

Where to Buy: Chantelle | Price: $68

  • Shape: 7/10 – Really nice rounded yet supported shape
  • Lift: 6/10
  • Support: 6/10
  • Comfort: 8/10
  • Sizing: I ordered up a band size but kept my cup size because I had a feeling it would be too small otherwise based on my experience with this brand. 

Boobie Real Talk: True story: I put this bra on and immediately felt good. It made my boobs look great, the fabric was pretty on the outside and silky on the inside, and it wore super light. As in…it didn’t even feel like I was wearing a bra. It’s a bit pricey, and the reviews (on Amazon) seem to be hit or miss, but I really liked this baby off the bat. I will say, as the day went on, it felt like it was getting looser and my lady parts shifted closer together creating a lumpy uni-boob. I had to adjust in the afternoon if I got too aggressive with my movements (or bent over to pick something up). That was a bit of a bummer, but for those first few glorious hours, it was possibly worth it? The band only had two vertical hooks so it didn’t provide AMAZING support, but I also ordered up a size. I think in my standard 38, it would have been better. 

Overall Score: 7/10

Best For: Someone who likes the look of a more traditional “pretty” bra, wants silky smoothness against their nips, and likes a round shape. I don’t know that I’d jump to wear this all day again as a busy mom, but I’d don it out on a date night, to brunch with friends, etc. because it does wear nicely under less casual outfits. 

Where to Buy: Bravissimo | Price: $68

  • Shape: 4/10 – Smooshed and spread out all at the same time (but maybe just bought the wrong size)
  • Lift: 5/10
  • Support: 5/10
  • Comfort: 5/10
  • Sizing: Ordered regular cup size and band size (I normally buy UK sizes, so be sure to check your American size before ordering). 

Boobie Real Talk: I found this bra on so many lists of “best wireless bras” so it had to go on *my* list for this piece to see what all the hype was about. I should have known I wasn’t going to get the support or shaping I need with the word “bralette” in the title. This is exactly what it says it is: a bralette so…my bad? This piece is beautiful, I will say that, but the straps aren’t adjustable and the lift and support I found in other bras just wasn’t there for my size. While the band fit well, the cups felt a bit small. It did hold up my boobs decent, but there was a bit of a squish factor and some spillage out the sides. If I had gone up a cup and maybe down a band size, I think the fit would have been better for me.

Overall Score: 5.5/10

Best For: Anyone without super heavy breasts that are maybe a little perkier than my post-breastfeeding pair and don’t mind that the straps aren’t adjustable. If you’re looking for something to wear that makes you feel good (visually) and you plan on doing no running or jumping, this could be a good pick for you.

Where to Buy: Honeylove | Price: $69

You can see a “third” boob forming on the side view since the cups didn’t fit and squished everything up and forward.
  • Shape: ?/10 – Didn’t fit, so hard to tell
  • Lift: ?/10
  • Support: ?/10
  • Comfort: ?/10
  • Sizing: They offer a quick quiz that walks you through a sizing chart to recommend a size for you. Mine was off, but I think that’s because my cup size just isn’t compatible with their range.

Boobie Real Talk: If the number of ads I’ve been fed is any indication, Facebook and Instagram have wanted me to buy this bra for months. They are relentless with digital advertising, but the models do make the bra look really nice, shapely, and sculpting. Sadly, this bra just didn’t fit me. Makes sense, considering the largest size shown on their charts is a G but sometimes I have blind optimism I can make something work. This is the only bra that had distinct, sturdy side support similar to a wired bra as well as straps that could be unhooked and crisscrossed. The mesh detailing is very pretty and I feel like, if it fits you, this could be a great, sexy bra to wear to get nice cleavage on the kind of outfits that need that without the discomfort or hard pokey wires.  

Overall Score: 7.5/10 (this is an estimate based on the details, reviews, and potential if it fits you)

Best For: Anyone willing and able to spend nearly $70 for a “next gen” type bra. It feels like a lot of engineering went into this thing, and it likely performs very well for a smaller cup size.

Where to Buy: Cosabella | Price: $79.75

  • Shape: 6/10 – Separated, rounded but a bit flattened on top
  • Lift: 4/10
  • Support: 6/10
  • Comfort: 6/10
  • Sizing: They offer “regular”, “curvy”, and “extended” so there’s a nice range to find your size even if you have large cups and a narrow band, or vice versa. (I ordered a “curvy” size.)

Boobie Real Talk: While my scores are pretty middle of the road here, this is actually a nice wireless bra option because it’s the only one that provided distinct separation. Each boob was properly in its own compartment, and while it’s not a cleavage maker, it’s lower cut and more comparable to a plunge style which is good for certain tops and wrap dresses. This bra is mostly double-layer mesh so it’s fairly see-through but it does look good on. It doesn’t really lift that well but does hold things in place, which works well if you have a perkier set. 

Overall Score: 5.5/10

Best For: Anyone who likes clear separation and a “hubba hubba” vibe. It’s pricy but seems well made and the size range offers even someone with H+ cups an option, which yes, usually comes at a price. 

Where to Buy: Cosabella | Price: $79.75

  • Shape: 3/10 – Wide set and a little droopy
  • Lift: 3/10
  • Support: 3/10
  • Comfort: 7/10
  • Sizing: They offer “regular”, “curvy”, and “extended” so there’s a nice range to find your size even if you have large cups and a narrow band, or vice versa. (I ordered a “curvy” size.)

Boobie Real Talk: This is a lesson in really paying attention to the name of a bra. I made the same mistake here as I did with the Bravissimo. This is a “bralette”…not a bra, and it wears like one. It fits overhead like a sports bra without an adjustable back. While it’s really beautiful and spacious even at my cup size, it just isn’t something I could wear on the reg. There’s just no support. Bounce-city here.

Overall Score: 4/10

Best For: Someone who just wants something really pretty at a large cup size but doesn’t need or desire much lift and support. Could be a great sleeping or lounge-around bra, but at this price point, I’d want more. 

Where to Buy: Evelyn & Boobie | Price: $88

  • Shape: 8/10 – Rounded and lifted
  • Lift: 9/10 
  • Support: 9/10
  • Comfort: 9/10
  • Sizing: 6 sizes available that, according to their chart, fits up to a J cup

Boobie Real Talk: I didn’t want to like this bra, mostly because of the price (okay, entirely because of the price, being the most expensive one in the lot). But I gotta tell you…this is the best bra on this list for several reasons: the support is THERE (the lift is on par with a wired bra); the fabric is so smooth and comfortable, the shaping leaves nothing wanting. I mean…it’s a bra for people who want their boobs to look like they’re in a wired bra but, well…they’re in a wireless bra. I’m always one to rip pads out of cups, but even with the cups, it still worked for me (though my preference is always without). Evenditly, the brand has a patent for something called “EB Core” that provides the incomparable lift. Yes, it’s $88 which is very cost-prohibitive, but I’ve spent so much money over the years on such bad bras that I’d gladly just go back in time and put that same money toward something that actually works. 

Overall Score: 9/10

Best For: Anyone with a bigger budget looking for the best support, seamless lines, and all-day comfort. Great for a wide range of cup and band sizes, even for very large breasts.

Before signing off, in case it wasn’t clear, this is a truly honest review. There was no payment from any of these brands to be included. My opinions are my own. I’m just one person with a chest trying to help another person with a chest feel good, lifted, supported, and empowered.

Good luck out there, and Godspeed to all you large-breasted warriors out there. It ain’t easy on these bouncy boobie streets.
