It’s hard enough to find a regular bra for everyday wear that you actually like—and finding a comfortable, no-slip strapless bra is even more difficult.
There is nothing more annoying than having to readjust and tug at your bra while you’re out and about, and worrying that you’ll have a wardrobe malfunction because your strapless isn’t doing its proper job.
If you’re pulling, tugging, or dealing with lines all over your body from where your bra slouched down to—or you find yourself counting down the minutes until you can unhook it at the end of the day—then you clearly haven’t found your perfect strapless bra match.
Luckily, through an extensive amount of trial and error, tons of research, hours spent reading countless reviews, and a poll that involved nearly 3,000 women in my Facebook group, I’ve narrowed down a list of the 12 best strapless bras for every type of outfit and occasion.
From the most comfortable bra on the market to the best strapless for large chests, this guide offers a solution to all of your strapless problems.
1. Most Comfortable Strapless Bra: Thirdlove Classic Strapless Bra
It also comes with straps that you can wear five different ways. Talk about the perfect closet staple!
This Classic Strapless Bra from ThirdLove is the holy grail of undergarments. It’s made with memory foam cups, an extra smooth and stretchy band, and silicone edges—which help it stay in place without digging into your skin.
2. Best Strapless Bra from Amazon: Calvin Klein Naked Glamour Push-Up Bra
Calvin Klein is a tried-and-true brand that makes high-quality bras at a good price point. This strapless bra is one of the brand’s best-sellers. In reviews, people mentioned that it never shifts positions or droops throughout the day (major perk!) and many noted that they want to order it in multiple colors because it’s so comfortable.
Reviewers also said that although it is a push-up bra, it doesn’t have excessive padding, which can get quite annoying. Plus, who doesn’t love a good Amazon find?
3. Best for Small Chests: Marie Jo Tom Strapless T-Shirt Bra
If you have a smaller chest, you can certainly get away without wearing a bra with a thick underwire. This one has a light wire that doesn’t poke at you while you wear it and it comes with straps that allow you to transform it into a halter, criss-cross, and conventional bra.
It’s on the pricier end for a bra, but reviews show that it’s worth it due to its comfort and versatility.
4. Best Strapless Bra for Full Busts: Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra
I’ve mentioned a few times now that Wacoal is one of the absolute best bra brands, especially for those of us who have large breasts. (I’m a DD, so I speak from experience!)
The cult-favored Red Carpet Bra was the first strapless bra that gave me to freedom to try slinky dresses and cute tops (which I now order regularly from Rent the Runway.)
Before I discovered it, I spent years thinking I couldn’t wear strapless dresses or off-the-shoulder tops, because I didn’t know that a truly supportive strapless bra for big boobs existed. So when I tell you that this bra changed my life, I’m not exaggerating. (Dramatic but true!) Women with smaller chests have even said the same thing.
It has over 1,000 five-star reviews on Nordstrom, which speaks for itself, but I will also add that it’s insanely supportive and snug without feeling restrictive.
Two pro-tips for my fellow fuller-bust friends: I have a blog post on the best swimwear for large breasts, and another one on my all-time favorite sports bra for high-impact workouts.
5. Best Strapless Backless Bra: Mitaloo Invisible Backless Sticky Bra
Sticky, backless bras generally get a bad rep, but this one has nearly 1,800 glowing reviews on Amazon and is only $18 (!)
What makes this pick so great is that it actually does what it’s supposed to do—stick. It doesn’t cause any weird gapping, which can give you the much-dreaded pointy boob look. Another perk is that although it sticks well, it doesn’t hurt to take off.
(PS: If you’ve ever been tempted to try wearing a bandana-scarf-top to a concert, or a chic backless dress to a holiday party, this sticky bra is the perfect solution.)
6. Best Strapless Bra for Plus-Size: Goddess Adelaide Strapless Bra
This bra features a supportive underwire that’s specifically designed for fuller cups. Not only will it give you the support you need throughout the day, but it also gives you a good lift. It comes in a variety of sizes ranging all the way to L.
Many women noted that they’ve never had a strapless bra that has “held their girls up so well,” which sounds like a win to me!
7. Best Sticky Bra: Nubra Ultralite Backless Wire-Free Bra
If you avoid low-back dresses and halter tops because you’re worried your bra situation will be too big of a hassle, then this wire-free find is for you. The adjustable clasp closure between each cup allows you to mold the fit to your body and outfit. Plus, it can be worn over 50 times without losing any of its stickiness.
It’s also way easier to care for than you might think—just hand wash it after each use and leave it out to air dry.
8. Best Bandeau Bra: Wacoal Halo Convertible Underwire Bandeau Bra
Another Wacoal win! I told you this brand rocks. Most bandeau bras slouch all the way down to your torso before you’ve even made it halfway through your day, but this feminine lacey find is supported by medical-grade elastics that help it stay put.
I personally own this bra, and love that it has a tiny strip of silicone along the top and bottom, which adds extra grip so that it won’t slip. I also love that it’s a bit more full-coverage than most of the bras on the market.
The unlined bra is made with brushed fabric that’s soft against your skin, and if you’re looking for support without the added bulk of a molded cup, this is a great option.
Some girls love it so much they said they would wear it as a strapless bra even if they didn’t need something strapless. The ultimate testament to how comfortable it is!
9. Best Convertible Strapless Bra: Spanx Up for Anything Strapless Bra
Spanx might be queen of shapewear, but they also make a damn good strapless bra. While many bras can feel too thick and heavy, but this one is lightweight while still giving you the support you need.
It comes with straps that allow it to be worn in multiple different ways, and is great for women who are concerned about stubborn back fat, because it does what Spanx is best known for: smoothes, slims, and minimizes rolls.
10. Best Strapless Bra for a Wedding Dress: Adore Me Kendil Lace Strapless Bra
Because you really can’t afford to be caught pulling up your bra in wedding photos, it’s important to choose something that will stay in place underneath your wedding dress all night.
This bra from Adore Me is the perfect choice for your big day because you won’t have to adjust it at all for five plus hours. The lace detail adds a romantic touch and the slight push-up design will give you a little extra oomph.
11. Best Plunge Strapless Bra: Natori Underwire Plunge Bra
This plunging underwire bra has silicone grippers around the band to ensure that it stays in place. The bra also comes with removable, convertible straps so you can arrange it in several different ways.
Reviewers noted that it fits so perfectly “you forget you’re wearing a bra” and that it adds a “beautiful natural shape to the cup without unnecessary padding.”
12. Best Push Up Strapless Bra: On Gossamer Beautifully Basic Strapless Bra
Having a basic strapless bra on hand is always a good idea—especially one that offers a good amount of support. Smaller chested women love that this one gives them a bit more cleavage without being overly padded.
13. Best Everyday Bra: Skims Strapless Underwire Bra
Skims is known for their comfy lingerie—underwear, pajamas, sweatpants, you name it. Their bras are no exception. This strapless bra comes in a handful of pretty shades for various skin tones. “This is the best strapless bra that I have ever had,” one reviewer said. “I’m a size 40DD and it holds me up well.”
The underwire provides good support while the tried and true comfort of Skims makes it a great choice for everyday wear. Whether you’re wearing a t-shirt or a formal dress, this is a great go-to.
