11 Bras That Don't Feel Like Bras, Because They Shouldn't Always Feel Like Boob Jails

As a woman, one of the best feelings is to come home, whip off your bra, and begin winding down for the night. But ladies, believe it or not, there are bras that don't feel bras. While they are definitely our friends and help us to feel empowered, sexy, and confident, often times, bras can feel constraining and uncomfortable. Not to mention, wearing a bra all day long can leave your ladies feel as though they are suffocating. On top of that, not only can they get super sweaty, but they also get sticky. Ugh. And adjusting your straps here and there throughout the day is just a reminder that you are wearing a bra and you want it off! 

A great solution is to opt for breathable bras. Cotton is a great breathable fabric and spandex can help keep you cool and dry, even if you're super sweaty. So if you're thinking about any activity that calls for feeling loose, light, and comfortable, (i.e., music festivals, picnics, brunch, etc.), be sure you're wearing a breathable bra. Another option is to wear super comfy bras that don't feel like they're there, like bandeaus or sports bras. 

Now, I'll admit that all of these possible choices may not exactly give the best support, but I can definitely tell you that these bras won't make you feel like you're putting your lady lumps into a boob jail.
