Some days you just wake up with minimal patience and a very low tolerance for adulthood. These are the days when those wire-free but supportive bras really come in handy. Endless pinching, sliding, and chafing could very well send you over the edge on days like this — especially if you’re already dealing with breast tenderness from hormones, which is when I tend to give my wired-lingerie drawer a well-deserved “screw you.” While going to work braless is always an option, it’s not always the go-to one for bigger-chested girls who prefer coverage, so if you’re looking for great wire-free bras with tons of support and lift, look no further than these amazing bras listed here.
Fit and style are always pretty important while you’re shopping for comfortable bras, but in this instance, the build and the material of the bra are crucial, because that’s what’s going to give you shaping and lift now that the wires are gone. Look for bras with wide straps, thick bands, padded cups, or tight-knit stretch materials that you can rely on, so you can skip the pinching and instead glide comfortably through your day. If you’re having trouble finding bras in-store, shopping online for them can be really fruitful, granted you can find specific types of bras in more sizes with the click of a button.
