Wire Or No Wire? The Never-Ending Bra Battle

November 1, 2008 by Ktbradford
shefinds | Style

It is a truth universally acknowledged that there are two kinds of bra-wearing women: those who like or don’t mind underwires and those who hate them with a passion. There is rarely middle ground on this issue. Women who hate the underwire really hate it. I know because I’m one of them.

The problem is that there are not that many wireless bras out there that are comfortable and supportive at the same time. And here’s the best part — the bigger you are (be that in body type or cup size), the more likely you are to hate the underwire and less likely to find a good, supportive bra without it. It’s a hard knock life.

I found a couple of wireless bras that I really like: the Playtex 18 Hour Comfort Strap Wirefree Bra ($22) and the Bali Double Support Lace Wirefree Bra with Spa Closure ($14).

The Playtex 18 Hour line doesn’t always live up to its promises, but this particular bra has kept me comfortable for several hours at a time. The wide band helps support my breasts and doesn’t dig into my, um, soft parts at the sides and back. Plus, it gives me a great shape.

The Bali doesn’t give as much support on the side, but makes a very good “comfort bra” for days when I’m less concerned with perkiness and more concerned with looking good while not being in pain. It’s made with 8% spandex, thus it stretches and moves with me.

So, SheFinds readers, do you love or hate the underwire? And, if you’re wirefree, what is your favorite bra? We’re putting together a guide to wireless bras and need your input! Write to us in the comments section and share your thoughts on the heated underwire issue, as well as your picks for greatest wireless bras out there.

And check out SheFinds Guide to the Best Bras and the Best Wireless Bras.
