I will give half of my entire empire including villages and livestock to the person who reveals the best kept secret of the universe.

Where to get a removable/strapless bra for big knockers?

I don't need extra padding, I can spare some flipping padding, I just need a decent bra sad

Oh and I don't actually have an empire, or any villages.
No livestock either grin

Firstly what size are you? - measure yourself as per this guide and post your measurements

and a MN bra guru will probably be along very soon to point you in the right direction smile

I have a fabulous panache black one in 30ff, however they don't do the style anymore after I'd gone back for a white one so watching with interest.

I have the Freya deco strapless in a 34G. I find is comfortable and reasonably supportive.

Try the wonderbra ultimate strapless, it's moulded but not padded. They go up to a G but the back comes up small so a 36G might do the job. It's the only strapless I've found that is truely supportive and doesn't slip down and end up round my waist.

I've ordered the freya from Amazon, I tried a wonderbra one in debenhams, can't remember if it was ultimate though.

My left fit fell out underneath the wire (it's my smallest grin)

Apparently Curvy Kate now does "the best strapless" for big boobs, it's called Luxe. I read good reviews but I had to stick to a M&S one back in October, I couldn't find it anywhere. I'm a 36G.

The wonderbra ultimate is the one with plastic "hands" that cup the breast rather than a thin wire that sits underneath. If your boobs are managing to escape under the wire though it sounds like the band is too large.

I'm going to try the ultimate too then, it was definitely not a hand that I tried!

The curvy Kate one looks nice but I find them hit and miss on sizing.
Two unpadded ones I have and wear to death are curvy Kate but I also have two moulded ones that give me an odd, sea monster, effect.

The Wonderbra sizing is a bit funny, I wear it a band size up (and I never size up!) so I'd try it in the 34G and 36G. I've heard good things about the K Luxe too. TBH, with strapless I think you have to try several sizes around your normal as the fit is often very different.

My conclusion smile

Freya = had cups that push together so I looked like the alien from Total recall.

Wonderbra ultimate = ok but the band and wire job by were too close and nipped my fat grin

Curvy Kate = massive huge cups in the luxe so my bigger boob is happy and not climbing out and band deep so the smallest boob isn't dribbling down!
I'm still doing the test wear day but so far so good, £32 from Amazon.
