Gone are the days of business casual…at least for now. With everything going on, sweatpants have replaced real pants, t-shirts have replaced button-down shirts, and slippers have replaced stilettos. And as for bras? Well, they’ve been ditched completely—maybe even turned into a mask. Because now is not the time to bothered by uncomfortable underwire or distracted by straps.
Still, there are times when we could all use a little support, like on a company Zoom call, for a FaceTime first date or during your child’s virtual learning. And that’s where bralettes come in. The wireless styles offer some coverage and shape, but you don’t feel constricted while wearing them, which is why it makes sense companies are reporting that wireless bra sales are up 40 percent as women work from home.
The thing is, there are thousands of bralettes to choose from, and we know you don’t have the time to shop around for one that lives up to its promise. So, we did it for you. Here, you will find the most comfortable bras and bralettes to wear at home, no matter your bust size. These top-rated picks may range in coverage and lift, but the one thing they all have in common is a long list of rave reviews.
Made from super-soft cotton, this bralette uses special knitting instead of wiring or padding to lift and shape. And thanks to its seamless construction, there’s no uncomfortable bulging or pinching. “This unlined bralette has a lot of support and still feels like I am not wearing a bra,” says one reviewer.
One of our favorite styles from the True Body collection, this bra provides impressive lift with a barely-there feel. Its tightly knit fabric and molded cups hold the girls in place while the wire-free channel lends the support of underwire without the wire. Another nice feature is the glue-dotted band around the bottom, which keeps the fabric from rolling.
This wire-free, full-coverage bra from Warner’s is a favorite for its smoothing abilities. The allover stretch fabric accommodates all shapes, enhancing your unique silhouette, plus it features extra side panels to prevent underarm bulge. “It does not have the typical ‘trim’ or seams that other bras have so it just lays nicely on my skin without pressing into it,” one reviewer describes.
What we love most about this Aerie bra is its second skin feel, which makes it ideal for all-day wear. The buttery-soft, slightly-stretchy fabric conforms to your curves and the removable padding provides a subtle perkiness. “It feels like it hugs my boobs in a natural way and gives a slight lift,” writes one reviewer.
With its wide straps and super-soft material, the Cotton Sensation is a comfortable choice for lounging around at home. It’s surprisingly supportive, too, thanks to its molded double-lined cups and elasticized trim.
ThirdLove is known for their flattering fits, and this ultra-comfortable bra is no exception. The wire-free design is supportive without being restrictive, and the memory foam cups form to the body like your favorite pillow. “This bra is so comfortable, I wear it all day and sometimes forget I even have a bra on,” one reviewer raves. What’s more, it comes with 3-way convertible straps can be worn straight, criss-crossed at back, or as a halter.
Available in sizes 30A to 40F, as well as half sizes.
If you truly want a bra that feels like next to nothing, this is it. Besides being super soft and breathable, the stretchy, ribbed material supports you in all the right places. And while it may not provide the lift of other picks on this list, it wears comfortably on all bust sizes. “This is my favorite bra for everyday/around the house. It gives support (I’m size 32DDD) without digging in or making me sore,” says one reviewer.
Available in sizes S-L and “busty” sizes up to DDD.
Kim Kardashian’s line may be known for its shapewear, but the cotton collection has a few standout pieces, too, including this bralette. Fans rave about how lightweight and comfortable it is—just don’t expect a ton of support, as it was designed for lounging.
Along with being super supportive, this bralette provides that same smoothing effect you love from Spanx sans any restrictive feel. It also features patented SmartStretch straps that are specially designed to never fall down or dig into your shoulders.
This lightweight, wire-free bralette provides a close to body fit and full coverage. Plus, thanks to its wide straps, removable foam inserts, and thick bottom band, your breasts feel comfortably secure, whether you’re wearing it alone or layered under your favorite t-shirt.
