Wire-free bralettes have long been the thing for spring. Of course, now more than ever, comfort bras are the trend to end all trends.
Stylistically, the options are wide open, from flashy, lacy longlines to substantial-looking bras you’d never guess felt way less structured. You can choose from among your favorite bra brands, and you can pick your price. What matters above all is finding the right amount of support that you need which, for once, finally comes down to personal preference.
All of these “lite” bras will give you enough shaping and support to put away your underwires whenever you want. They also come into play during those times when we need something easy for lounging around, or even going to sleep, but don’t feel like we can completely go without. Presenting our Bare Necessities buyers’ short list of the best comfort bras and bralettes…
These are fully functional, supportive bras whose job it is to lift, shape and provide all-day comfort…without an underwire. They’re perfect for plus sizes and full busts who require a bra, non-negotiable, to get through the day. The styles listed below are all great under T-shirts and other thin tops because they won’t show, but they’ll also never let you down.
