There's no question that strapless bras are an absolute pain (often, literally!). From figuring out what size you should get to finding one that feels comfy and doesn’t end up falling down to your stomach, the whole experience puts the "F" and "U" in frustrating. And, what's a boob owner to do when some brands don’t even carry your size because you have a smaller bust?!
First of all, let out that exasperated sigh you've been holding in since middle school. Then, let's move on to finding the solution. Before shopping for a strapless bra, "get professionally fitted by someone who is an expert," says expert bra fitter, Courtney Killpack, owner of Bra Fiitting by Court. "I highly recommend going to bra shops that are independently and locally owned."

Knowing your proper band and cup size makes it that much easier to shop online and find the perfect fit. Not to mention, strapless bras are technical garments that need to fitted correctly to do their job. If not, they cause "a lot of discomfort physically and mentally," says Killpack. (I second that!)
Why don't some strapless bras stay up?
Beyond proper sizing, Killpack says that padding and shallow-shaped cups designed specifically for less-full breasts are a priority. Most just aren't catered to that size, but don't worry—the options below are!
