8 Shelf bras for D, DD cup and up

Do shelf bras give support? 

Shelf bras have the shape of a shelf. The shelf cups hold your boobs in place.

The cups of a shelf bra only have a quarter or even less height than a standard bra cup.

Shelf bras are not the same as open cup bras, which have no cups at all. See open cup Lingerie Yandy

Yes, a shelf bra will give you support

  • most support from any bra will come from is band, as so with a shelf bra
  • the shelf bra has wider set wires and does gently hold and give support
  • some have a lightly padded underside for lift and support


Will a shelf bra work for bigger busts?


Sure, shelf bras are a little less functional than other bra styles. Still, they do offer support and carry your boobs nicely.

If you are a D, DD, or larger, this bra can be great on you.

If you have doubts about how it will fit you? I do advise you to read reviews from other women. You might find the answer you were looking for and it’s great pleasure, I find, if women share their findings. See my selection of 8 plus size shelf bras here.

Add some extra playfulness to your shelf bra! Combine them with some fancy nipple covers, see Yandy pasties here
