The Charm Molded Balconette Bra is a versatile strapless bra that can be worn several different ways. The molded, balconette cups have a microfiber overlay for a smooth look under clothing. No need to worry about this style showing your tops or dresses – the seamless design will remain hidden for a virtually undetectable look. The stunning floral print, scalloped lace details on the center panel and band, a flirty keyhole cut-out at center front, and wide set adjustable and removable straps round out the bold design.

Yes, supportive strapless bras without wire do exist! The Deco Wire-Free Strapless Bra is a supportive strapless bra with seamless cups. Similar to the Charm Molded Balconette Bra, the cups of the Deco Wire-Free Strapless Bra are also seamless and virtually detectable under clothing. Molded cups with soft padding lift the bust while the sexy faux lace-up center panel brings the attention front and center. This style can also be worn several different ways – regular, racerback, one shoulder, and halter – by moving the straps.

The design of the Nouveau Strapless Bra is reminiscent of the Charm Molded Balconette Bra, but with one key difference: the cups of the Nouveau Strapless Bra are decked out in scalloped lace, so this style won’t be seamless under t-shirts and fitted tops. It is, however, a beautiful bra to wear under strapless dresses and one-shoulder dresses. Molded demi cups lift, shape, and center the bust for a lifted and rounded silhouette. The microfiber band feels supportive yet comfortable enough for all-day wear. Pair it with the matching Hipster for a glam look!

Final considerations

There are a lot of strapless bras out there to choose from, but these are our favorites for a supported and lifted look. Before buying a new strapless bra, be sure to get a bra fitting first so you get the right size and design for your breast shape. Some cup styles (underwire vs. no wire) and fabrications (seamless cups or lace cups) may work better than others for you, too.

If you’re full busted, opt for a wide, sturdy band lined in firm fabric such as power mesh for the most supportive fit. Though the majority of a bra’s support comes from its band, you’ll still be losing some support when you remove the straps, so be sure to keep this in mind when choosing a strapless bra. Depending on the bra’s fabrication and fit, you may want to choose a strapless bra in your sister size (one band size smaller and one cup size bigger) to get a snug fit in the band, which will be crucial in keeping the strapless bra from falling down.
