Strapless bras can be really useful, offering you great support and shape with fantastic lift. No doubt about it, summer’s sleeveless dresses, bandeau tops and spaghetti straps all call for one thing – the dreaded strapless bra.

But it’s hard to find a woman who loves these creations. Traditionally, they fall down (quite literally) in several areas. They’re usually uncomfortable and unflattering, often squeezing your breasts into any shape other than the silhouette you actually desire.

5 Awesome strapless bras you can get this summer

But finally it seems that the fashion industry has woken up to criticisms and dreamt up a new generation of strapless styles.

This means that there is hope for more women. This summer, several new strapless bras have been launched in bigger cup sizes to rescue busty ladies. Check out the list below:

Wonderbra Ultimate Strapless Lace Up to a  G-Cup Bra
Wonderbra Ultimate Strapless Lace Up to a G-Cup Bra

#1). Wonderbra Ultimate Strapless Lace UP Bra

Available from £36 @ Wonderbra.co.uk
This new Wonderbra has hand-shaped padding at the side to lift and support. It sits quite low on the chest, but pushes the boobs up well for just the right amount of cleavage.

The Bra is superb when it comes to holding your assets firmly thanks to the underwiring, moulded cups and silicone strips on the back band.

Your breasts might escape from the cups to start with, but once you got the positioning right, it will give great lift and shape.

Fit: 4.5/5 …Staying power: 5/5 …Sag factor: LOW


Chantelle C Essential Bra

#2). Chantelle C Essential Bra

Available from £44 @ Harrods.com
You may need help to do this up; it has three hooks at the back and the underwiring could be very stiff. It sat lower than some beneath boobs, so pressed on ribs a little.

The cups were intended to envelop the entire breast, but you may still spill out a little at the top. A good hold and a smooth line, but not the best lift.

Fit: 3.5/5 …Staying power: 4/5 …Sag factor: LOW TO MEDIUM
 


All-Around Bandeau
All-Around Bandeau

#3). All-Around Bandeau

Available from £59 @ Spanx.com
A comfier alternative to an underwire, though you have to be a contortionist to get it on. Comes in four sizes, Small to Extra Large, and claims to offer support, a sleek fit and to trim the torso.

Unfortunately the stretchy fabric may press down on the breasts instead of lifting them, giving them a bit of a ski slope. Although it might be comfy, it may not give enough support or pertness.

Fit: 3.5/5 …Staying power: 3/5 …Sag factor: MEDIUM


Ultimate Longline Body Solutions Strapless A-E Bra

#4). Ultimate Longline Body Solutions Strapless A-E Bra

Available from £22.50 @ marksandspencer.com
The longer line gives this bra a glamorous look without creating too much wobbly cleavage. It has four hooks at the back, so you might need help to get into it, but it will feel secure and hold well.

This bra is available up to an E cup in three colours – black, white and a sugary pink. My only gripe was that the underwire comes up slightly too high at the side so it pressed a little on my breast tissue there. Great shape though. Some va va voom and lift without looking tarty.

Fit: 4.5/5 …Staying power: 5/5 …Sag factor: LOW


Perle Moulded Strapless Bra by Prima Donna

#5). Perle Moulded Strapless Bra by Prima Donna

Available from £81.95 @ Rigbyandpellar.com
This bra gives a lovely rounded shape and a reasonable lift that feels age appropriate. As a mother of three, these days, I don’t want to spill out over the top like Jessica Rabbit.

It’s very comfortable and feels secure under the dress. Available in sizes up to a G cup in three colours (black, nude and white) this bra can be worn with straps, too, so it’s versatile. The downside is that it’s pricey, but the great fit makes it a worthwhile summer investment.

Fit: 5/5 …Staying power: 5/5 …Sag factor: LOW

  1. I have never tried any of these strapless bras but I think I might have a look at them during the summer. This is a well-put-together posts by Elechi.
