While we love shopping, bra shopping is a whole different story–it’s never our favorite thing to do. Finding a bra that is the right size and style is no easy task. With so many different options out there, it can be a challenge to find a bra that is actually comfortable.
We’ve all had those days where we are trapped in a bra that is pinching and poking us in all the wrong places. The straps dig in too tight at your shoulders, the band pinches at your back, and the wire pokes at your ribs. It’s the worst.
So many different brands boast making the most comfortable bra, but very few actually live up to those claims. Without trying on a million bras and going through trial and error, it can feel impossible to find a comfortable bra that is actually comfy.
Luckily, customer reviews offer some helpful insight into the best bras on the market. From t-shirt bras that feel as lightweight as a cotton tee, to wireless bras that still offer support, these five bras have been rated the most comfortable by women who wore and loved them.
This bra comes in sizes 32A-40DD and is available in 14 colors.
Promising review: “I absolutely love this bra. I am a 32 DD and I get great support and comfort with this bra. If you are a larger cup I definitely think you should at least give this bra a chance and try it on, you may be surprised!”
This bra is available in sizes 34B - 44DDD.
Promising review: “I decided to buy the 34B and 34C and have them altered, but to my complete amazement, the band feels great on the second hook (and tightest one if I want more support). So the band definitely runs snug on this bra. I fit in both cup sizes, and use them for different times of the month. I love that these bras do not dig into my armpits like many other bras (i.e. Wacoal's wireless retro chic bra, any panache bra, and really every other brand out there). The fabric is really soft, the straps are comfortable, good breast separation and shaping for a wireless (and no pointiness), and I can wear it under t-shirts, dresses, etc. Wish I had bought it years ago. If you offered it in a variety of colors, I'd probably buy them all.”
This bra comes in sizes 34B-40D and is available in 22 colors.
Promising review: “This is the only bra I've ever tried that doesn't leave a gap at the top of the cup. The padding is thick enough to add a bit of size, but not so much that it looks unnatural. Lining is even across bra. It is NOT padded like a push up bra. There is a soft piece of padding on the back where the hooks go that prevents any itching or discomfort. This is the most comfortable underwire bra that I have ever worn. Normally I have to cut a little whole and remove the wire from underwire bras. That is not true with this one. It also looks great. I liked it so much I bought it in every color in my size!”
This bra comes in sizes XS-L and is available in 2 colors.
Promising review: “This is the best bra for everyday wear. It feels like I'm wearing nothing at all. It's lightweight, high quality and inexpensive. I'm a small B cup with a small frame and the size small fits me perfectly. I bought four different colors.”
This bra comes in sizes XS-XXL and is available in 6 colors.
Promising review: “I love these bras. They are so comfortable. I am over the cute, underwire, sexy bras and just want comfort, support and something to shape and smooth under tshirts etc. This bra is so comfortable. It's Like a sports bra but since it has hooks on the back its so much easier to get on and off. No struggling to pull it over your head and down in place. The straps are wide so they don't dig in to your shoulders. Plenty of support. I wear an XL for comfort which fits and holds perfectly and frankly is so comfortable, I don't even feel like I'm wearing a bra.”
