Wearing a Bra Is About to Get Better in 9 Ways

You’ve got bra-blems? We’ve got solutions. No one bra does it all, so you need a variety of specialized designs. And remember: Go for professional fittings regularly.

Deep Plunge

Wear it as a regular bra or unclasp the front to accommodate a low-cut V-neck. This style can go as much as three inches lower than a regular design.

Large-Bust Strapless

Finally, feel secure! Hidden boning and a wide band with four hooks give you extra support, while a no-slip silicone lining helps the bra stay in place—minimizing the dreaded tugging. (PS: it comes in sizes 36C to 44H.)

One Shoulder

Designed specifically as a one-shoulder bra (instead of a strapless convertible version), this underwire-free bra curves around the body to support your chest. (It’s also reversible, so you can wear the strap on either side.)

Back Smoother

Wide back wings on this plus-size style (available in 40C to 48DDD) prevent lumps and bumps. (Plus, the lace detail makes it pretty and practical.)
