Why not upgrade to wireless bras? Everything else is wireless (except for my toaster, why can't they make a wireless toaster?)
Also known as a soft cup bra, a wireless bra can be supportive.
The bras listed below are specifically picked by me for women with large breasts, however, there are wonderful soft cup bras for my smaller sisters out there. So keep reading no matter what size you happen to be.
As I was researching, I found that most softcup bras (wirefree) were worn by either small breasted women (size A) or very big busted women ( like sizes F-M). Small breasted women don't need the added support of an underwire and very large breasted women find underwires very uncomfortable. So if you're a middle grounder (like B-DD) I would probably recommend an underwire bra. That's what all my bras are.
However, tons of ladies out there like wireless bras. That's just fine. There are lots of great bras out there for you.
Just want to be upfront with you that these are affiliate links. I earn a small commission if you decide to buy one.
If I was going to order a wireless bra for myself this would be it. I like it because it is virtually seamless.
Also, it's lower cut under the arms. I can totally see myself wearing this on a Sunday afternoon, or maybe while lounging on vacation..... Okay, now I want to buy this bra!
This bra got great reviews from ladies who had just had breast surgery. Whether it was a reduction or an enhancement.
One more note: This bra seemed to be most popular with ladies in the C-DD range.
Very comfortable all day long. lifts and supports as well as my underwire bras. ~Merrilynn from Waikoloa, HI (40DD)
I bought this bra because I had breast augmentation in Oct and every "sports" bra that I had bought was torture. I tried this bra on at a dept store and was immediately relieved by the comfort and support it provided. I came home and bought 2 more on HerRoom for a much cheaper price!

This wireless bra is especially recommended for all those ladies that are extra busty (like size F or bigger)
The only complaints about this bra were about the cushions not staying in place, but most problems were solved by sewing them in place.
The cups fit well for a generously sized bossom and the straps are
really comfortable. I almost forget that I have it on. I would recommend
it instead of underwire. It also holds up well after each washing. I
would recommend this for ladies G cup and up. :)

This is a bra with great support! I have had a hard time finding a bra that really lifts and takes pressure off my back but still gives me shape. This is it! It is also comfortable enough to wear all day. I highly recommend it.
This bra fits me quite well. Good support in the cups and band. Well made. I have had a slight problem with the shoulder pads slipping, but those can be sewn into place.
it is great but the strap pad is shifting
This wire-free bra is great for full-figured women. Like the bra above this bra has extra wide straps to help prevent 'shoulder digs'.
It comes in four colors; white, blush (light pink), blue ice (pictured), and black
The bra definitely full coverage, with high sides and band. Most women liked the high sides unless they were petite and then they found the high sides were uncomfortable.
This bra is so comfortable. It feels and fits good. Some bras are so uncomfortable that after work I can't wait to take it off, but this bra from her room feels nice that I forget I have it on. I will be ordering from her room again.Thanks!
Ladies - this bra is to be WORSHIPED! I am a size 16 female with 40DD breasts. I always complain that no bra both minimizes AND lifts/keeps shape -- but I was wrong! This bra makes my breasts look darn near amazing! I have been asked if I have lost weight (chuckling) I cannot recommend the fit enough. I have tried all bras through out my life time and this is WITHOUT DOUBT the absolute best! Do what I did (ever cautious) I bought one -- and now I am back on the site ordering them in EVERY COLOR!

This bra comes up high on the sides. Could be a good thing or a bad thing. Personally since losing weight full coverage bras bother me, especially on my sides. Some ladies were bothered by the 'boning' on the sides of this bra, but fixed the problem by cutting it out. They loved the bra after their alteration.
Reviews for the Goddess Audrey Soft Cup Bra
If you don't like underwires, try this bra! Gives great support. Love the wide back band (5 hooks) to keep everything lifted and in place. Cut off the shoulder pads, though. Nice idea, but just kept showing with some of my clothes-- extends just enough to be problematic. Love this style! Laura from FL
Lingerie manufacturer Frederick's of Hollywood reports that in 1996, the average size of bras they sold was 34B.
Currently, the average is a 36C.
And I'd bet my best bra that nowadays the average bra size is closer to a D cup
Similar data about the increase in average breast size comes from England, where busts grew from 36B to 36C in a 3 year period.
According to The Penguin Atlas of Human Sexual Behavior, breasts across Asia grew from 34A to 34C between 1980 and 2000.
