A lot of people reach for bralettes on days they just want to be comfy — and that's because they're free of annoying wires that stick into your ribs all day. But bralettes aren't your only wireless option, there are great bras without wires out there, too. The best wireless bras are super comfortable, and they don't compromise on lift or support.
Wireless is a pretty common thing when it comes to gym wear and cute lacy bras, but there's a revolution happening in the world of online bra shopping. People are demanding that their bras actually do something as far as support, and they're not going to deal with the pinching or poking in order to get it. Instead of general sizes like small, medium, large, and extra large (like many bralettes and sports bras), most of these also give you a band and a cup size, so you can find the perfect fit for your body.
Rather than wires, these bras utilize features like molded cups, wide bands, stretch fabric, and careful framing. All of those things work together to keep you supported and comfortable. Best of all, you won't feel the need to rip these off the second you walk through the door.
