I literally hate wearing a bra, but also fun fact: my boobs are too big for me not to wear one and still be comfy. Anyone over a C cup will understand – sometimes it’s just comfier and easier to wear a bloody bra. But while there’s plenty of over-the-shoulder-boulder-holders out there, comfy ones are harder to come by. So I’ve made a wrap of comfortable bras for all the other bra-haters in the world.
PSA: The best thing to do first is to GO GET YOURSELF FITTED. My god, as a ex-bra fitter myself I cannot attest how often I’d meet women saying their bra sucked, only to realise they were wearing one 2 sizes too small/big and that’s why it was the worst. Most department stores and lingerie shops offer the service for free.
BRAS N THINGS
The microsuede backing of this bra makes it a dream to wear, and the cups are made of soft material so they shape without feeling like solid, round walls against your boobs.
The flat edges and zero seams on this bralette make it ridiculously comfy – perfect for weekends when you want some shape, but wanna feel like you’re literally braless.
The jersey material is what makes this bra super wearable.
Yes, it’s not super cute. Yes, it’s one of the comfiest things you can wear, and absolutely you should wear this to bed if you like a lil’ support.
HARA THE LABEL
Look! A totally cute lying-around-doing-whatever bra! Hara use bamboo for their bra materials, which is super soft – and all their creations are made ethically using plant-based dyes.
A re-workable t-shirt bra, the microfibre fabric makes for extremely easy wear.
With cup sizes from C-G, this is a great comfortable pick for anyone wanting some stronger support but minus the itch-factor of lace and annoying seams.
While this bra is wire-free, the stretch-cotton cups provide loads of support. It might not be your daily bra, but you’ll love it for hanging at home and on weekends.
Bralettes are rarely made for anyone beyond a C cup, but this one with added padding means you can rep a super cute lacy bralette without feeling like you’ve lost all support.
The trademarked ‘Ultralu’ material moulds to your body, and it’s sweat-wicking. What’s not to love here, honestly.
A seamless bra that still has strong, moulded cups for when you want shape without wire-based support.
The OG of comfy bras, I can attest – this bra is the tits. Pun intended.
Made of bamboo-based viscose, the elastic on this crop-bra isn’t hectically tight, so you feel like you can still breathe.
Suede lining and mouldable cups make this an underwire bra without the uncomfy elements.
The wide sides of this seamfree bra mean no cutting in, one of the primo reasons a bra feels shitty to wear.Image: Hara The Label
