What makes these soft, silky wonders so great? “I think the name says it all!” says Jené Luciani Sena, author of The Bra Book ($20). “Women really are looking for a seamless look under clothing, and a seamless bra provides that. You’ll get a moderate amount of support—maybe not as much as some other bras, but enough for most bust lines—and you’ll get the coveted combo of both support and comfort. That’s what makes seamless styles so appealing.” As you’re shopping, heed Sena’s advice: “Look for wider bands or coverage across the back to help smooth any bulges, and also enough coverage in the cups so you don’t billow out,” she says. “If you’re looking for adjustability, look for adjustable straps and a band with a hook-and-eye closure, but it should be done in a way where it still maintains that seamless silhouette.”See? Seamless is the way to go. Find Sena’s picks combined with our own below. Trust us, you’ll want to add (at least) one to your cart immediately. A ceremonial bra burning for your uncomfortable underwires is optional.

Eby, Seamless Bralette — $45.00

It’s super smooth, super stretchy, and super comfortable for all shapes and sizes.What reviews say: “I’ve ordered a couple different colors of this style and I love it.

Everlane, The Seamless Bra — $35.00
Comes in: Sizes XS/S, M/L, XL/L, in black, acorn, burnt sugar, and dusty lavender color ways.The versatility of Everlane’s seamless bra is what keeps us reaching for it day after day (and seriously missing it on laundry day.) Not only does it work beautifully as a bra, but the thick, ribbed fabric has some compression, so it can double as a sports bra for light activity. Expect a deep V-neckline, wide straps, and supportive elastic band. If you’re feeling bold, it can even suffice on its own as a top; pair it with high-waisted jeans for a casual summer look.What reviews say: “I was looking for something that would tame the girls (DD cup) without any wires and especially without any bulges or lines showing through under my tops. This bra fits the bill. I will be buying more. And the color matches my skin (a must)!” – Everlane customer.
Sometimes you need something with a plunge for low-cut tops, especially in the summertime,” says Sena. “This seamless bra from Soma does the trick.” She warns it may not be for everyone though; if you have very full or round breasts, this bra may not give you enough coverage in the cups. “The quickest way to ruin a seamless look is to have boobage bubbling out the top of cups!” she says.
If you prefer a traditional hook-and-eye closure (instead of a pull-over design), opt for this Third Love bra. While form-fitting, its light-as-can-be fabric with removable foam cups and four-way stretch lets you have the bra experience that you want (and deserve!). It comes in sizes XS to 1X, and in an array of neutrals, but we’re suckers for the soft limited-edition colors, like the muted mint. De
