If you daydream of ripping off your underwire bra at the end of day, it’s time to try wireless bras: They still offer the support you need without the poking, pinching and constricting feelings that make you eager to whip off your bra the second you set foot in the house. When The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab pros put wireless bras and bralettes to the test, we sent nearly 50 different styles to testers with a range of cup sizes.
Non wired bras with good support
Many testers with larger cup sizes said they were “doubtful” that wireless bras would be able to offer the amount of support they desired. Testers were impressed at just how supportive high quality wireless bras can be, with many saying they now prefer their new wireless bras over traditional underwire styles. While underwire bras are known for being very supportive, not all bras are created equal and some wireless bras can actually offer more support. If you want to maximize support, opt for wireless bras with molded cups for coverage and lift.
No matter if you have a big bust or small bust, these are the best wireless bras that look great under clothes while feeling like loungewear.
Enbliss Wireless Bra
Molded cups for excellent suport
Super soft nylon/spandex material
Some reviewers found the band rode up
GH analysts love that this pair features molded cups for excellent support and lift with coverage. It’s lightly padded to create a natural shape and a bit of cleavage — a more comfortable T-shirt bra alternative. Testers found the material to be “super soft and breathable,” especially liking how this bra offered “the same support as an underwire!” Some online reviewers found the bottom band rode up a bit. Unlike many bras, this style is available in 15 different shades.
Women’s Easy Does It No Bulge
Make sure to follow the size chart closely
A tester favorite with all around stretch for a comfortable feel and a smooth look, every tester said they were satisfied with this bra and would continue wearing it. This wireless bra had nearly perfect scores across the board for fit, comfort, support and staying in place. Online reviewers recommend looking at the size chart closely before purchasing to ensure proper fit. Testers loved the bra’s look and it’s available in 17 shades from neutrals to bright pinks.
Cool Cotton Lightly Lined Wireless Bra
Perforated cup lining allows extra airflow
Wide bottom band
Some testers found it a bit sweaty in summer months due to the cotton fabric
If you prefer the natural feel of cotton undergarments, Tommy John’s popular cotton wireless bra is ideal. It features molded cups covered in soft cotton fabric that’s still breathable with a perforated lining for extra airflow. Note that cotton is not moisture wicking and testers found this bra a bit sweaty in summer months. Testers raved that Tommy John bras made them “finally believe that wireless bras can still be supportive enough.” The wide bottom band prevents any lumps or bumps while providing comfortable support.
Signature Lace Crossover Bralette
Soft, sexy lace fabric that isn’t itchy
Easy to take on and off
30 colors available
Limited size offerings
When wearing this all lace bralette, testers said it was soft and sexy without being itchy. The lace is see through in the front, so it offers less nipple coverage than lined styles. Easy to take on and off, one tester said it’s perfect when you want “sexy lingerie without the discomfort of padded push-up bras.” We love that it’s also available in a wide range of color options and has a matching lace thong.
Variety of nude shades available
Testers found it super comfy
Smooth back and sides
Removable pads shifted a bit
As a full coverage smoothing wireless bralette, this pick from Soma is perfect for everyday wear with one tester even saying she’d wear it “all day and all night!” Available in 15 colors with four different nude shades, you are sure to find a tone you love. It had especially high scores for comfort, but some testers did say the removable pads did shift a bit when wearing.
