Finding bras past a Double D cup can be really difficult. brands say they go past a DD, it’s usually only 1-2 cup sizes. And, after a summer of working at Victoria’s Secret [can you believe?] I know that not all brands or stores play fair when it comes to sizing people – often putting customers in uncomfortable bras that don’t fit well.
And, if you do find a bra in an H cup – it’s often UGLY. Luckily, I’ve been testing different bras for years, and I’ve shared my faves in this here post!
Not In-Store – UGH!
But here’s the thing. Many of the brands that carry H-cup bras are only online, or if they DO have stores don’t carry an H-cup in them. For this reason, I recommend that you go to a bra fitting specialist, get your measurements and then order a bunch online.
You can return the ones that don’t work. Be sure to read the fine print for how long you have to return something.
Only sharing **MY** Faves
Below, I have shared only the brands that I have tried and loved! If you do decide to purchase, please use my links. I earn a small affiliate commission, which enables me to make more content. All opinions are my own!
Brand #1: Elomi on Bare Necessities
I first discovered Elomi at an event in NYC a few years ago, and this has been my daily wear brand EVER SINCE. Elomi uses some pretty incredible science to design their bras.
You can’t buy directly from Elomi, but you CAN buy from Bare Necessities. The company carries one of the largest selections of Elomi full figured bras around. They also have bra fitters available that you can call.
Elomi makes nursing bras, everyday bras, lingerie sets and SWIM. They go up to a JJ cup and 48″ band size.

Brand #2: Cacique from Lane Bryant
Y’all know I love Lane Bryant, blogging about their swimsuits and business suits.
I particularly like their plus size balconette bras. They also have fun plunge and t-shirt bras.
Lane Bryant used to go to a 48″ band size, but now they stop at a 46″ band size in an H cup.
Shop H cup bras at Lane Bryant here*.
*Lane Bryant doesn’t care many (mostly zero) H-cup bras in store, so I recommend buying online, and having your order shipped to the store. Then you can go in, try them on and return the ones that don’t work.
Brand #3: Torrid
Torrid is the go-to place for H-cup bras with fun prints, lace and color. I go to Torrid when I want to find a really fun bra. They also DO have quite a variety of different style of full figured bras in nude.
They have T-shirt bras, strapless bras, full coverage bras, and a few sports bras in an H cup.
*Torrid doesn’t really carry a size H in their in-store bras, but does carry bralettes in larger sizes. I recommend ordering online and going in-store to try on your H-cup bras. See what works in the dressing room, and immediately return the ones you don’t love!
Brand #4: Impish Lee
I am OBSESSED with Impish Lee bras and their aesthetic. When I first heard of them, I was pretty skeptical that their bralettes would fit me or offer any support.
The Impish Lee design team can make custom bras in any size (literally, any freaking size) and I LOVEEEE the pieces I have from them.
Best of all? You can play designer and create the perfect set in the fabrics you want, or shop their collections.
Feel Good about Your Purchase
Impish Lee makes bras and bralettes in a variety of sizes, and can go as large or small as needed. All of the pieces are ethically made by the Impish Lee in NYC. Bonus: The brand is owned by two sisters who regularly work with people from the LGBT community, and they also partner with diverse models.
What Brand Do You Think Should I Try?
There are other brands out there that carry H cups in US sizes, but don’t carry a 48-inch band. What brands should I try and add to the list? I’m always up for a shopping trip!! Please let me know in the comments!
