Most comfortable strapless bra styles that won’t let you down for summer.
Best Strapless Bras
Strapless tops and dresses are beautiful. But, without structured support, they easily land themselves on the ”do not wear” list for those with larger chests. After all, there are very few women who can easily slip into a top without a bra, and you’re likely one of those such women. The solution is, of course, a strapless bra. Something that you can slip on without straps and wear under all of your tube tops, spaghetti straps, slip dresses, and more. The only problem is, a strapless bra that actually fits sometimes feels like somewhat of an urban legend.
We’ve all been there: you raise your arms above your head, and your strapless bra has fallen to your waistline; you opt for a tighter tube bra that you remember from your youth, and wind up with more of a uniboob than anything else; you size down on a cup size in the hopes that it will stay up better and wind up with spillage that makes you think you would be better without a bra at all.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best strapless bras for all your summer tops and dresses…and they will fit just as well as your classic T-shirt bra does on the regular, too! From bustiers to convertibles, shop all of our favorites here.
OUR TOP PICKS
You’ll find few bras as comfortable as one from Fleur du Mal—especially part of their essentials collection. This bra is a one-and-done, no matter what you’re wearing, as its convertible style allows you to not only wear it as a strapless bra, but also a one-shoulder or classic two.
You’ll love this convertible strapless bra not only for its fit, but for it’s focus on what “nude” means, offering five different skin tone options to try to blend in with yours best.
Yes, sometimes you still just want that tube bra. Skin has taken the age-old concept and added center ruching, which not only helps to hold the bra in place, but it also helps to avoid that dreaded uniboob that you often get from a strapless bra of this style.
For larger cup sizes, strapless bras are definitely not out of the question! This Wacoal strapless underwire bra is designed for bustier women, going up to a size 42J. And it also includes removable straps if you ever want to wear it as a classic style instead of strapless.
This strapless bra feels like a pull-on tube, but offers a little bit more structure with a hook-and-eye closure at the back and—of course—underwire cups. Plus, in black, white, and purple, it boasts an allover stretch-lace design.
This bra is so much more than just strapless. In fact, it’s backless as well! Using silicone self-adhesive, it has you covered (and supported!) for all of your barely-there summer wardrobe choices.
If you’re looking for a bra that, although strapless, might want to be shown off a little bit more than most, consider this colorful two-tone look from Dora Larsen.
If you’re going strapless, it can help to get a little bit more support with a longer-lined style, like a corset or bustier. Kiki de Montparnasse is one of the queens of the style, offering a range of sultry lace looks that you’re going to want to show off even more than hide away.
This strapless bra is backless as well, using adhesive to stick to your skin, placing one cup at a time on your chest and connecting the two with the front closure to attain just the right amount of cleavage.
For that in-between line, shop this Victoria’s Secret strapless bra. It has a little bit more structure than a classic bra, with fabric beneath the underwire line, but isn’t quite as long as a full bustier, so you don’t feel too restricted.
One of the most custom sizes for a non-custom bra, ThirdLove asks you to take a quiz before shopping, offering band sizes up to 48, and even half cup sizes, which is virtually unheard of.
Yes, this Dolce & Gabbana bra is a splurge, to be sure. But if you’re not going to splurge on your lingerie, then when?
Eres is an ultimate lingerie go-to, due to the brand’s incredible ability to design the most comfortable and lightweight bras that are also totally supportive and just structured enough. This convertible bra is no exception, offering a second-skin feeling from the moment you put it on until the moment you take it off.
Sometimes a bra isn’t enough, and you want even more support throughout your look. Consider this shapewear strapless bra combo for your next cocktail dress event.
Size down on most strapless bras to ensure that the band is tight enough to hold everything in place, but don’t go too small…you don’t want the bra to be uncomfortable, either.
Though a strapless bra is a good thing to have on hand on the regular, it’s never more important than during summer months where the strappy tanks and strapless dresses are endless. Shop the best strapless bras that are comfortable and supportive here.
