The 10 Best Strapless Bras for Every Bust Size and Outfit Need
These picks won't slip.
Does anyone really like wearing strapless bras? Of all the bra varieties, they're arguably the most tricky to find in the right style, fit, and color to suit your needs. Often, they're too tight, too loose, or just too uncomfortable to wear for longer than an hour without feeling like you've banished your breasts to boob jail. However, strapless bras are also a necessary wardrobe staple. You need a good strapless bra for tube tops, low-cut dresses, and more, so it's important to find a good one.
Luckily, not all strapless bras are created equal. There are actually plenty of options—from bandeaus to bras with removable straps—that are comfy and stay in place. Just keep in mind: Strapless bras are meant to fit more snugly than traditional bras to compensate for the lack of straps, so size up or down accordingly. Here are some of our top picks.
Best strapless bra that stays up: ThirdLove 24/7 Classic Strapless
This strapless bra holds you in and hugs you tight. The no-slip grip—thanks to a silicone edge on both the top and bottom of the bra—keep breasts upright and in place without any uncomfortable digging. And with ThirdLove's signature size matching quiz, you can find your perfect fit. This bra is available in cups AA–I, including half cups, and bands 30–48. Just keep in mind: The band is meant to fit more snugly than your day-to-day T-shirt bra, so don't let that turn you off.
Best strapless push-up bra: Calvin Klein Naked Glamour
This strapless pick is one of Calvin Klein's bestsellers, and for good reason. Its contour underwire cups mold comfortably to your bust while adding just the right amount of subtle push-up padding. The seamless design won't show under dresses or tops either.
Best plus-size strapless bra: Torrid Microfiber & Lace Multiway Strapless
This multi-way bra accommodates cup sizes B-H and band sizes 36-50, with plenty of underwire shaping and support. Whether you choose to wear it with or without straps, the snug fit and extra-wide band remain in place and provide a dramatic lift. Plus, we love the cute lace detail that's found all over.
Best wireless strapless bra: Lively No-Wire Strapless
Get wire-worthy support without the discomfort of a wire with this comfy bra by Lively. Boning on the sides of the bra provides support to prevent sagging, while the soft, flexible material molds to your bust for a personalized fit.
Best strapless bra for large breasts: Wacoal Women's Red Carpet Strapless Full Busted Underwire
This bra was made with larger breasts in mind. It features comfortable, full-coverage cups, a slightly wider band, and a cushioned underside to maximize comfort and minimize bulging. According to reviews, it also passes the "arms up" test, meaning you can raise both arms up in the air and it won't move or slip out of place.
Best plunging strapless bra: Wonderbra Ultimate Push Up
This plunging push-up bra provides incredible lift, no matter your bust size. Available in cup sizes A-I, this bra's supportive underwire balconette cups enhance your cleavage, and the silicone dots along the entire band offer extra staying power and support.
Best convertible strapless bra: Aerie Real Happy Strapless
We love a convertible bra because it gives you plenty of options for wearing all kinds of different dresses and tops. This comfortable, demi-coverage option comes with removable straps that allow you to take one bra and wear it four ways: two straps, one strap, cross-strap, or strapless!
Best seamless strapless bra: Skims Bandeau Bra
Perfect for lounging around in the summer heat, this unique bra uses smooth, double-lined stretch material that's quick-drying and feels like a second skin. Unlike traditional bras, this seamless bandeau runs from size XXS to 4X, and reviewers rave about its supreme comfort and surprising support.
Best strapless, backless bra for smaller breasts: Fashion Forms Nubra Ultralite
Smaller busts require shape and support without the added bulk, and this popular self-adhesive bra delivers. The light padding and front-hook closure provides subtle cleavage for smaller chests so you can feel confident from all angles. Additionally, this reusable backless bra won't lose its stick and can be reworn up to 25 times before you have to replace it.
Best backless, strapless bra for larger breasts: Soma Backless Strapless Bra
