The Best Wireless Bras For Comfortable Support & Lift.
The new wave of wire-free bras show that you don’t need to suffer to be fashionable and put-together. Tired of those bra wires hugging you to death? Scared of whether they actually cause lymph nodes to work less efficiently? Although there is no medical evidence to support the claim that regular bras can cause breast cancer, it is true that wireless bras are so much more comfortable to wear. I personally have very limited patience for the endless pinching, digging, sliding and boa-constricting issues that come with wires, so I joined the wire-free revolution a while ago.
These are my favorite wireless bras that are comfortable and supportive for every single occasion:
The Best Molded Wireless Bra by Yummie
Yummie has just launched a whole collection of wireless bras. My personal favorite is the Dawn Wire Free Contour Bra ($42) because it offers the comfort of a bralette with a light molded padding that provides additional support and modesty. The adjustable straps provide maximum comfort, and the shape looks great under T-shirts and work clothes. It is the perfect foundational piece for your everyday looks! Plus, it comes in six beautiful shades.
The +: Looks and supports like a regular bra with the comfort of a wire-free bralette.
The -: It only runs from XS to L, so it is not the best option for bigger busts.
Hint: Please beware that it runs true to size; be sure to check Yummie’s label recommendations as your bra size might differ from your clothes sizing. In my case, and albeit being a small size person, my personal measurements coincided with the size medium, which fits like a glove.
The T-Back Wireless Cami Padded Bralette
As part of the new line recently launched by Yummie, Emmie ($34) is a super cute T-Back wireless bra that will keep you company during the hottest months. Perfect for layering under racerback styles, it has a closure-free design to look really neat under your breeziest fashion numbers. The removable pads and the wide side panels offer comfort and support with absolutely no wires. Isn’t it gorgeous?
The Organic Cotton Wire-Free Alternative
PACT makes some wonderful organic cotton clothing and they recently added some wireless bras to their selection. On my wishlist you’ll find this beautiful Pullover Lounge Bralette ($25) made with 95% organic cotton certified by GOTS. Adjustable straps, lace trim cups… it has everything to become a staple piece in your summer wardrobe (hey, it would look great as a layering piece under a top!) The wide band offers a comfortable support and it is stretchy to provide easy movement. As it is not padded and the fabric is quite lightweight, it works best on smaller cup sizes.
Did I mention that it is made in a Fair Trade certified factory?
A Wireless Bra with a Vintage Feel
The Hanes Fit Perfection Wire Free Bra ($18.46 at Amazon) features an adorable polka dot print and the perfect shape to enhance your breasts like a regular bra without the constraints of the wires. Lifting and very supportive, it will give you a beautiful shape with a vintage feel that won’t slip, dig or get in the way of your regular activities. Lightly lined and featuring wide comfort bands, it is ideal for medium to larger sizes.
Wire-Free Lift Without Padding
Looking for a wire-free bra without padding? Some of my friends love this beautiful bra by Warner’s. With a back smoothing fabric to avoid bumps or unflattering marks, it has front-adjustable straps for maximum comfort. The fabric, aside from being beautiful, is stretchy enough to accommodate all breasts without constricting. For bigger busts, the Warner’s Just You Wire-Free 2-Ply Lace Bra (starting at $15.95) is a wonderful wireless option!
