There are several features which can help identify a supportive bra.
 
There are several features which can help identify a supportive bra.
===Seams===

;'''Seams'''
In a maximally supportive [[Bra anatomy#Cup|cup]], there will be seams. Seams running either vertically or diagonally provide increasing support for larger, heavier [[breast]]s, with diagonal seams considered the most supportive.<ref>[http://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20110912/flair/flair71.html ''The Gleaner'': "Find The Cup That Fits"]</ref> And with advances in production technology, seams now provide an excellent, natural-appearing shape, meaning aesthetics do not necessarily need to be sacrified for function.

===Well-joined back straps===

;'''Well-joined back straps'''
The best bras for larger busts have back straps which are not simply "tacked on" to the [[Bra anatomy#Band|band]], but continue along the band all the way to the closure.<ref>[http://thelingerieaddict.com/2010/11/what-should-busty-ladies-look-for-in.html ''The Lingerie Addict'': "What Should Busty Ladies Look for in a Bra?"]</ref> This type of strap join is called a [[Bra anatomy#Strap join|leotard strap]], and helps distribute the weight of the breasts throughout all regions of the band.

===Snug-fitting band===

;'''Snug-fitting band'''
The importance of a snugly-fitting band cannot be emphasized enough, as the band is where the most support comes from. [[Sister size]]s may do in a pinch, but for complete support, the [[How-to determine bra size|proper-fitting bra]] is unmatched.
