From the skinny strapped sundress to the light and airy spaghetti straps of our favorite tank, a strapless bra is a quintessential summer closet staple. However, finding one that’s comfortable AND can support the girls can be daunting. There are different types and styles from a bandeau to a convertible strapless in which the straps can be worn in many different ways or not at all. So what do I do when I’m looking for first hand, reliable suggestions? I go to my computer and straight to the Get Your Pretty On Pretties Facebook page of course and wow did they come through! When I say this page is an amazing resource and full of amazing women I’m not even exaggerating one bit. There were suggestions for every need and every bust size and I really do mean every bust size from A cups to I cups. I can’t say enough how much I love our Pretties!
Now if you’re wondering what my favorite strapless bra is, I’m going to be honest and tell you that I’m still looking for one that I can actually say I love. I did buy this bandeau from Target’s Auden line and it’s really comfortable but now I’m on the hunt for a strapless bra that has more of a sweetheart neckline and one with convertible straps would be nice too. So let’s get right too it and see the roundup of strapless bra brands recommended by the Pretties!
The Wacol Red Carpet Convertible Bra was the overwhelming Pretties’ favorite! It comes in nude and black with a sweetheart neckline and two straps so you can create endless combinations or lose the straps altogether. It also comes in band sizes from 30-44 and cup sizes B-I. Priced at around $68 many said it was worth the investment and fully supported even the bigger cup sizes. Another Wacoal favorite is the Halo Lace Strapless Underwire Bra which can be found on both the Wacoal website as well as the Soma site. It also comes in black and a sand color and band sizes 32-40 and cup size B-DDD.
Soma was another highly recommended brand that got the Pretties talking. They stated that they were super comfortable and supportive. The Embraceable Strapless Bra and the Stunning Support Stunning Starlet Strapless Multiway Bra were the top two types mentioned by name. The Embraceable Strapless Bra comes in band sizes 32-40 and cup sizes A-DDD while the Stunning Support Stunning Starlet Strapless Multiway Bra comes in band sizes 32-44 and cup sizes A-G. Plus Soma also offers free shipping and returns on all full price bras so you’re not stuck if you’re trying to find the size that fits you best.
The Pretties showed some love to the brand Third Love and their 24/7™ Classic Strapless Bra which comes in four different colors ranging from a very light beige to a chocolate brown. Band sizes go from 32-48 and cup sizes AA-I. This bra also had great reviews on their site but the biggest difference between this brand and others is the availability of cups in a half size.
Cacique by Lane Bryant was another brand that was repeatedly mentioned for their comfort and their ability to stay put especially for bigger bust sizes. The Bandeau Strapless Bra comes in nude and black with band sizes ranging from 36-44 and cup sizes C-H. Another popular bra is the Lightly Lined Multi-Way Strapless Bra. This one also comes in nude and black but the band sizes have a wider range going from 32-46 and cups going from A-K.
Torrid was another brand that came up quite often boasting support, comfort and that it doesn’t slip. The Torrid Microfiber Lightly Lined Strapless Bra comes in a few different colors and band sizes 38-50 and cup sizes B-DDD and even up to an H in some band sizes. Another favorite variation is the Microfiber and Lace Push-up Multiway Strapless Bra. This one has a pretty lace detail and gives the girls a little boost. It also comes in a pretty blush color as well as a fun black lace style and a bright pink and black lace style. Band sizes range from 36-50 and cup sizes are from B-H.
The below strapless bras, while they may not have received a ton of votes, they still received enough recommendations to be recognized.
If you’re still having trouble finding a strapless bra you love it could possibly be that you’re trying on the wrong size. If it’s been a while since you’ve been fitted it’s worth the time and effort to have a proper bra fitting done. Most bra fittings need to be scheduled in advance but certain places allow walk-in appointments. It’s best to call first and see what their policies are. Most departments stores offer bra fittings but you may also have some local boutiques around. A quick google search can help you find one. Knowing what to expect from a bra fitting can also be helpful. Check out this helpful guide I found from Bra Theory.
