There are some women who take pleasure in dolling themselves up in fancy lingerie on regular days just because. And then there are those of us that just like a simple, no-fuss bra that lifts and supports without poking or prodding. I happen to fall in the latter category. Don’t get me wrong: I can appreciate a pretty lacy number, but that’s just not what I wear on day-to-day basis. Instead, I swear by unadorned T-shirt bras that can be worn comfortably and discreetly underneath anything.
Over the years, I’ve made it my mission to stock my lingerie drawer only with bras that I’ll actually wear, so you can imagine I’ve been through quite a few. While experimenting with bra after bra hasn’t been so good for my budget, it has helped me become one of the few women that really and truly doesn’t dread putting on a bra every morning. Believe it or not, comfortable bras really do exist!
If you haven’t found a bra you don’t mind wearing for hours on end, I’m here to help; I’m sharing my top three “everyday” bras. These are the bras that you can throw on any day of the week without thinking and you’ll be totally comfortable all day long. These bras are in it for the long haul and are so versatile. Whether with T-shirts, tight dresses or oversized sweaters, these everyday bras will be the work-horses of your lingerie drawer. You’ll find yourself reaching for them day after day.
Editor’s Note: If you’re going to invest in a new bra or two, always buy the nude! It’ll be totally unnoticeable underneath virtually every top.
The Best Everyday Bras
If there's one thing Gap is known for after all these years, it's quality. And I can personally attest to this fact because I've had my Gap full-coverage bras for years and they're still as good as new. I can't even begin to tell you just how comfortable this bra is; let's just say that sometimes I forget I'm even wearing it! I also love that it gives my chest the perfect smooth, rounded look and the straps literally never fall down. Not to be dramatic, but bury me in this bra!
The only reason I gave this Natori bra a try is because it was on sale, but now I am hooked. It's definitely on the pricier side, but can you really put a price on comfort, especially when it comes to an item you wear every day? The hallmark of this bra is definitely the straps. They may look pretty and lacy (read: itchy!), but they're not at all. And the fabric this bra is made from is nothing short of divine. If you've never splurged on a bra, you'll immediately notice the difference when you slip into this one. It's honestly worth every penny.
Last but not least, I swear by Calvin Klein's T-shirt bras. They're the epitome of simple perfection. They probably couldn't be more basic, but that's totally fine by me because the design and fit are so spot-on. Here's how obsessed I am with this bra: every time it goes on sale, I buy a new one. I'm so afraid they'll stop making it that I need to have enough to last me the rest of my life. Yes, this bra really is that good.
