Vibrant women have learned through experience about the best bras to support large breasts. Here are some of the best recommendations collected through many discussions on VibrantNation.com:

1. Maidenform Total Solutions

From terryrose in boobs
“I am a 38 C or D… depends on the bra. And yes, 36B before the babies and age. I recently found the best bra for support and comfort — it is Maidenform Total Solution — lifts, supports, looks great and NATURAL (under t-shirts) at the same time! And it is comfortable!”

2. Sassybax
From Sarah Joiner Eubanks in boobs
“I have found Sassybax to be the most comfortable one I’ve ever had in my life. They make them with and without underwires and they make longline bras and strapless bras. I’ve even got my 90-year-old mother-in-law wearing them. (And her golden bozos are way below her waist!!!) She would swear by Sassybax if she swore (she’s a good Baptist!) and wouldn’t wear anything else. They are kind of expensive, but definitely worth it.”

3. Wacoal
From upnorthigo in boobs
“I’m a 38FF or H depending on the brand…Nordstroms is the place. They carry the larger sizes and they carry pretty ones, not the ones that Helga the Goat Herder would wear! I simply love Chantelle (French line). Wacoal is great also. And the ladies at Nordstrom’s know how to fit bras. If you aren’t close to one, you can get detailed bra fitting instructions online which will give you instructions on how to measure to determine your proper size.”

4. Bra-llelujah by Spanx
From Peg in Finding a comfortable bra
“Have you tried the Bra-llelujah bra by Spanx? I tried one on in the store and couldn’t believe it! It was like wearing nothing — and yet I had support. If it’s within your budget, you’ll love it.”

5. Chantelle
From Tomima Edmark in best bra brands to flatter your body type
“People think the terms ‘full-figured’ and ‘plus size’ are interchangeable, but they’re not. A full-figured woman is someone who is a DD cup or larger, yet is average in the rest of her body. So, a full-figured woman over 50 but who is not above a 38 band size (which would put her in about a 10/12 dress) will do very well in a brand called Lunaire or Chantelle or Panache. Elomi is a great new brand (a division of the Goddess Companie and Fantasie) that does a really nice full full-figure bra as well.”

6. Goddess
From Tomima Edmark in best bra brands to flatter your body type
“A plus-size woman is a DD cup or large and also over a size 10 or 12. She is going to do very well in Goddess and Fantasie. Freya is a more youthful line, but they have some really cute things if you want to experiment fashion wise.”
