Shopping for the perfect bra is harder than finding a signifiant other. Just like finding the ideal mate, you have to factor in your specific needs and preferences, and then test it out to see if it’s the right fit. Once you account for price, color, and style, determining if a bra fits properly and comfortably can make or break your relationship. And, unfortunately, the fit is the point when a lot of bras fall short, mainly because of underwire. This detested material has been a key ingredient of brassieres since the ’30s, so it’s definitely time for a due change and a modern bra upgrade. I personally have a strapless bra with about two inches of ugly underwire protruding from the side, so I have to brace myself for side boob wounds whenever I wear it. We’re here to break the myths that underwire bras are the norm or that they offer more support, especially for bigger busts. Behold–the three best wireless bra brands and styles that can fit any bust type, no matter how big or small or uneven. Treat yourself to bras that are so comfortable you wouldn’t dare think of taking them off first thing when you get home. Once you go wireless, you never go back.
1) Vibrant Body Company: This start-up bra company makes strictly wire-free, natural undergarments. Vibrant Body aims to make your bras as healthy as possible, using completely non-toxic materials to prevent skin irritation or absorption. Their website also says that underwire can actually constrict your lymph nodes, which is yet another reason to ditch it for good. The company carries their trademark Vibrant Bra in three colors and two styles—Full Coverage and Semi Demi. The straps of both bras sit slightly more centered on your back, which can help improve your posture, and they run wider than most, so you never have to worry about loose straps slipping down. At $89 a pop, the Vibrant Bra runs on the pricier side of the underwear spectrum, but it’s an investment you can reap the rewards from every time you slide it on. Their sizing runs a bit differently, so make sure you check out their size guide and accurately measure your bust for the most comfortable fit. Cup sizes run from B-D.
2) Spanx Pillow Cup Signature Wireless Bra: Spanx has always had our backs—and stomachs and thighs—covered with their wondrous line of shape wear, so it’s no surprise that their lingerie line can offer just as much overall protection and support. Available in cup sizes A-DD, their Pillow Cup Signature Wireless Bra can comfortably coddle any bust size. I mean, it’s called “Pillow Cup” for crying out loud. You can’t get much more cozy and lightweight-sounding than that! The smoothing back is also designed for comfort while flaunting your natural curves. It’s currently sold out from Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, so it’s clearly a hot ticket underwear item. You can still get your hands on one from Amazon.
3) Warner’s Cloud 9 Lift Wire-Free T-Shirt Bra: We love this Cloud 9 Lift wireless bra because it not only comes in standard natural colors, but also in hot pink for all the color-loving bra shoppers out there. Small built-in pads subtly shape and lift your boobs, and the cups offer complete coverage in sizes A-D. This bra also has a smoothing back to highlight your figure without adding bulge. Cushioning on the front of the straps offers even more comfort, and reviewers raved about how much they loved this go-to, everyday bra.
