Good Question: Strapless Bras for the Top Heavy

From the message boards: I love to wear spaghetti strap shirts, etc., but all the strapless bras I have tried so far do not hold up a 38C. Any suggestions for me? I am getting really frustrated!

There are two keys to a good strapless bra for fuller figures: 1) A wide “anchor” strip that runs horizontally under the bust, and 2) Boning, flexible plastic strips that run vertically along the cups. Both of which help keep the bra in place and are featured in the Goddess Strapless Lace Satin Underwire Bra which supports sizes up to 48FF. And silicon lining, such as in the Wacoal strapless, adds extra support. This bra will not budge until you take it off! A simple bandeau-type bra may be all you need for casual days in summer tanks or tube tops. But under cocktail dresses, a strapless Goddess Lace Longline Underwire Bra doesn’t show and keeps everything nice and smooth from the bust down to the waist. Think of it as a bra with extra tummy control sewn on the bottom.
