Busty Sizing: The Best Bras for Large Busts

best bras for big boobs

When Kindred Bravely’s co-founder Deeanne Akerson started designing the French Terry Racerback Nursing & Sleep Bra, comfort and softness were foremost in her mind. Within days of the bra’s launch, pregnant women and nursing moms began telling her how much they loved the fabric and feel of the bra.

We also heard from moms who wanted a little extra room in the cups. “I can’t believe how much my breast size has changed from pregnancy and nursing,” one mom wrote. “I’m much bustier now than I ever was before! I need great bras for big boobs!” We worked quickly to adapt our bra design, and Kindred Bravely’s first Busty bra was born.

Since the days of our first Busty bra, we got requests over and over for new styles in sizes for larger busts. And we now offer more than ten styles in Busty sizing. From Busty lounge bras to sports bras, contour bras to pumping bras, we have bras in Busty sizes for nearly every activity!

What Does Busty Mean?

A Busty bra is more supportive for larger breasts (E through I cups in Kindred Bravely bras). Additionally, people with hard-to-fit bra sizes, like smaller band sizes with larger bra cup sizes – or a small ribcage with a large bust – can find the perfect bra fit when they try Busty sizing.

Busty bras have greater cup volume to support more breast tissue. They typically have slightly wider straps than the regular sizes and additional support in the form of a reinforced chest band or a tighter knit fabric specifically designed to help lift heavier breasts. 

(Since most of the support in a bra comes from the bra band, a supportive chest band for large breasted customers is a must!) 

From size 28E to 46I, we have great wireless bras that provide support and coverage for a wide range of busty people.

Which Busty Nursing Bra Style Is Right For Me?

If you’re looking for an everyday wireless bra to wear to work or out and about, we have several different Busty options to meet every need. 

For a sleek profile and shaping under your clothing, try the Signature Sublime® Contour Nursing & Maternity Bra (perfect for day wear with a deep V neckline) or the full coverage Simply Sublime® Nursing Bra (which provides as much support as an underwire bra). 

If you’re a pumping mom, we have the Sublime® Hands-Free Pumping & Nursing Bra (everything you’ve dreamed of and more), the Sublime® Hands-Free Pumping & Nursing Sports Bra (a sports bra for pumping?! YES!), and the BFF Hands-Free Pumping & Nursing Bra (a more streamlined silhouette and lighter-weight fabric for more breathability). We’ve added a fourth option for pumping and nursing with the ultra-modern Minimalist Hands-Free Pumping & Nursing Plunge Bra

(We’ve even added an XXXL-Busty size to our popular Sublime Hands-Free Pumping Bra, which has our widest, padded straps for extra comfort!)

Sublime® Hands-Free Pumping & Nursing Bra


Wire free light-support/sleep bras, also called lounge bras, are perfect to wear around the house or overnight – many women wear them all day and night. We have Busty sizes in our super-soft
French Terry Racerback Nursing & Sleep Bra, Organic Cotton Nursing & Sleep Bra, and Sublime® Adjustable Crossover Nursing & Lounge Bra. These bras are specially designed to support heavier breasts while still being supremely comfortable. 

Comfort Is Queen!

We know that one size doesn’t fit all, especially when it comes to bras, and we know how essential it is to have a comfortable bra from pregnancy through postpartum and breastfeeding.

Our Busty sizes have been designed with ultimate comfort and support in mind. The enhancements we’ve made ensure that more women can find the comfort they deserve through the miraculous experiences of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Cup size and band size can grow significantly during pregnancy and nursing, so we recommend measuring before you order (many women are wearing the wrong bra size without realizing it). We want you to find a bra that you’ll love, so check your measurements on our fit quiz or with our Customer Care Team before ordering.
