In late 2020, I began a hunt for decent plus-size, larger-cup bras. In January 2021, I started documenting the search for wireless bras under that category here on the blog. My introductory post explains more about what brought me to this search (in specific – because we all know decent bras are extremely difficult to find!). I’m documenting a condensed list of the results here, with links out to individual posts as they publish.
First, I’ll start with the above photos of me in my chosen shirt/pants combo (kept it the same for all these bras). The one on the left is a no-bra photo, the one on the right is with a correctly-fitting (and yet uncomfortable!) wired bra. Below, there will eventually be a collage of this outfit with each of the bras I’ve kept for comparison purposes.
Each of the below-listed bras have a general bit of info (size, cost, star-rating). See individual links for more details on why/how I kept/returned/rated each bra. I will continue to add to both lists as I get more information and try more brands/designs.
