A really good bra can make all the difference on a day when you seek comfort (which is every day for me) and are also wearing a form-fitting shirt or dress. This is precisely the situation
bras that won't show under clothing were invented for. There will always be a place in my heart for vintage bullet-style bras that are meant to be shown off under sweaters for a little Betty Page or '80s Madonna appeal, but there are also times when you want to whisper to your lingerie to keep mum and let your outfit enjoy some of the attention.
the most comfortable bras — the kinds you can wear from morning until night and will make you forget you have them on — also just so happen to be seamless, wireless, and perfectly smooth. These features also make for bras that appear pretty much invisible under clothing. So, while you may be on a mission to simply find a bra that vanishes under a tight T-shirt, you could also be scoring one that feels like silk on your body. Major win.
These 10 highly rated bras will make you feel and look as if you're not wearing anything at all. You'll feel the support they offer, but they'll agree to be silent, secret, and amazing partners in crime.
A Seamless Bra With A Clear Back Strap
Capezio Seamless Clear Back Bra With Transition Straps (Sizes XS-XL), $21-26, Amazon
This double layered
clear back bra is described by both Capezio and reviewers as ideal to wear under layers and, considering how it's made with dry wicking fabrics, it stands to reason it's a solid performance bra for workouts, dance, and active days. The back clear strap is detachable and both nude and clear adjustable shoulder straps are included — meet the bra that will look amazing under backless or off-the-shoulder tops. Reviewers warn that it runs small so consider sizing up to be safe.
A Satin, Full Coverage Bra With A Pretty Branch Print
Lane Bryant Smooth No-Wire Bra (Sizes 38C-48DDD), $35-45, Lane Bryant
A sexy, satin,
seamless bra from Lane Bryant with wireless cups, this highly-rated stunner comes in three prints/shades: Branches, black, and cafe mocha. The bra features extra-wide adjustable straps, padding for additional support, and padded back closure. Reviewers say it's smooth, comfortable, and undetectable under clothing.
A "Spill-Free" Classic T-Shirt Bra
A Seamless & Strapless Minimizer Bra
Lilyette by Bali Women's #939 Tailored Minimizer Bra (Sizes 34C-42DD), $18-46, Amazon
There will come a time when you'll need a strapless bra — and the more comfy and less showy beneath clothing, the better. The
Lilyette Tailored Minimizer Bra has a sweetheart neck and comes with straps that can be adjusted in halter, crisscross, and demi styles. It has an underwire and molded, seamless outer cups for a smooth look. Reviewers say it offers incredible support on larger cup sizes, doesn't slip, and can be worn under anything — strapless or not.
A Comfy Bra For Deep V-Necklines
Hanes Women's Ultimate Comfy Support Wirefree Bra (Sizes Small-2X Plus), $12-34, Amazon
Got a snug V-neck shirt, blouse, or dress and need a
wire-free bra to give you comfortable support? This seamless and machine washable bra features 4-way stretch fabric, adjustable shoulder straps, a double hook-and-eye closure on the back, and comes in eight shades. It's also free of itchy, annoying tags (love that) and, according to one reviewer, can be worn under T-shirts without lumps, bumps, and lines.
A Seamless Bra With Underwire Cups & Sexy Mesh
Wacoal Body by Wacoal Seamless Underwire (Sizes 38B-38DD), $46, Amazon
You may love the feel of a seamless bra but still desire the support of one with underwire — and that's where this
Body by Wacoal Seamless Underwire fits in. This stunning blue bra called Campanula (which also comes in basic black, toast, and white) is a full coverage seamless bra with unlined underwire cups, adjustable straps, and a bit of sweet decorative mesh at top. It's kind of like having the best of both worlds — and reviewers say it fits and looks great under clothing, to boot.
A Seamless Padded Bralette For Extreme Lift
A Smooth, Seamless Bra That Works In All Sizes
Bali Women's Comfort Revolution Wirefree Bra (Sizes X-Small - 2X), $14-56, Amazon
Comfort Revolution Wirefree Bra is the kind of seamless, wireless bra that inspires reviewers to write things like, "Best. Bra. Ever." It features 4-way stretch fabric, wide straps, and 2-ply cups that have a knitted center so your breasts are separated and don't get that "uni-boob" look common with some seamless bras. This bra has a metal hook-and-eye closure in the back with a metal count that varies by size. And if you love color options, you've got 'em: more than 30 that range from white and nude to Grape Royal and Electric Blue.
A Red-Hot Seamless Bandeau Tube Top Bra
A V-Neck Bralette With Removable Inserts
Coobie Strappy V-Neck Lace Trim Bralette (Sizes One Size-Full Size), $12-59, Amazon
Bralettes are rising stars in the lingerie world and this
V-neck lace trim bralette is the perfect example of why: it offers unlined, wire-free comfort, adjustable straps that can partially convert to a criss-cross position, and pull-on closure so you don't have to fuss with hooks in the back. You can choose whether you want to keep or remove foam inserts and this bralette has been described as extremely comfortable and discreet — with or without the foam paddings. It comes in two sizes: one size fits cup sizes 32A to 36D and full size fits cups 38A to 42D.
