The Furlough of the Bra: 5 Comfy Alternatives

Bras and bralettes

Working remotely and feeling tempted not to wear a bra ever, ever again? Yeah, we get it. However, larger busts do benefit from having a certain level of support, which doesn’t mean wearing an uncomfortable bra.

Enter the world of non-wired bras and bralettes. No longer an option only for smaller busts, they come in flattering designs to compliment all shapes and sizes. Here are a few of our very favorites:

Figleaves “Smoothing” Non-Wired Plunge Bra

If you are looking for an alternative to your ill-fitting bras, give this non-wired plunged bra a try. Luxuriously soft brushed microfiber, flat encased seams, cushioned hooks and eyes and especially soft straps and underband are some of the features that combine to create this ultra-comfortable range. A true second-skin bra, its super flattering shape makes it the perfect ally for those days when you want to feel comfortable, but still have to (half) dress for those Zoom conferences.

Price: $39 / A-H cup sizes

Pact Organic Cotton Smooth Cup Bralette

For the eco-friendly gal, Pact has created a full line of bras made with organic cotton with very cute designs. Feturing removable padding for customizable coverage, the Smooth Cup Bralette is the perfect staple piece. A wireless pullover style with a delicate lace band detail, it is one of my favorite bras for a good reason. Do you have a v-neck top that is cut a bit too low? This bralette will give you that extra coverage. Looking for a bra that you can wear during your sleep? The buttery-soft cotton will be your perfect ally. Did I mention that their spring colors are to extremely cute?
