That style is called a bandeau top. A well made bandeau top can be strapless, have ordinary over-the-shoulder straps, or halter style straps that fasten on the outside of the cups, or in the center front.

For anyone larger than a b cup, I suggest sewing cups, or even a whole strapless bra, inside a bandeau top.

Kwik-sew 3875 is a bandeau pattern

Or, draft your own pattern, here's a tutorial
