When you have large breasts, bra shopping can be really challenging, especially if you're looking to say goodbye to underwires. But the best bras without underwire for big boobs utilize various combinations of stretchy fabric, wide bands, and clever strap placement to keep your breasts contained and comfortable.

Yes, it's true what you've heard — while there are certainly times when you may feel like unleashing your inner Sophia Loren and pushing the girls up, up, and away, underwire bras are not your only option if you have large breasts. You can go for lacy plunging styles, strappy yoga bralettes, or utilitarian sports bras; whatever your preference, there's a wire-free bra out there that will suit you (and your boobs) perfectly. Just make sure you look for the bra backed up with glowing reviews from Amazon reviewers with larger chests.

Whether lacy, sporty, or perfectly optimized to wear under a T-shirt, these popular bras are celebrated for not having underwires — and for still being super comfortable and cute.

Vanity Fair Women's Body Shine Full Coverage Wirefree Bra

With a flexible cup design, banded frame anchors for extra support, and wide straps, this 4.3-star rated bra is lauded by women with larger cup sizes for being "surprisingly well made" and providing "great support," despite a lack of underwire. One reviewer who wears a size 40D bra says this bra allows her to move with ease and that it is adjustable so she can alter it to suit her needs.

If you long for color, you've got it. In addition to its sweet, subtle, shiny floral design, the Vanity Fair wirefree bra comes in six shades: Damask Neutral, Star White, ivory, Grey Whisper, Midnight Black, and a pretty light blue shade called Summer Rain.

  • Available Sizes: 34B - 40D

Bali Women's Comfort Revolution Wire Free Bra

This casual wire-free bra from Bali has ultra-thin foam cups with enough stretch to find the perfect fit. It has knit-in support for your back and sides and a soft band that fastens at the back.

The obvious draw here is that this bra, which earned an overall 4.1-star rating from more than 5,600 Amazon reviewers, can be worn comfortably all day and doesn't have lacy elements or bows that can look lumpy under a basic T-shirt. It comes in a slew of colors, some of which have subtle prints.

Reviewers report that the bra is incredibly comfortable, surprisingly supportive, and shows off their natural shape.

True & Co. True Body Lift Triangle Adjustable Strap Bra

Yes, wireless bras for large breasts can also be cute, comfortable, and nearly invisible under clothing, and this True & Co. bra is proof. Designed specifically for larger cup sizes and made from a super soft, lightweight nylon and elastane fabric, it has just the right amount of stretch and support in a pullover style with minimal hardware. It has adjustable straps and removable pads, so you can get just the right fit.

Editor’s note: I wear a size 32DD, so bra shopping has typically not been super fun for me, but I am obsessed with True & Co. wireless bras. They vanish under clothing, and offer enough coverage so that I don’t spill out of the top. The best part? They’re so comfortable, I usually forget I’m even wearing a bra.” — Carina Finn

The bra comes in a handful of two-tone colors, as well as plain white.

One reviewer who wears a size 36G gave this 4.1 star rated bra five stars because she noted she could "run, jump, do jumping jacks" in this bra without her breasts moving or shaking. Judging by similar stories, it may be worth the investment, whether you plan to wear it at the gym, school, the grocery store — wherever.
