Thinnest bra

Within the context of intimates, comfort can translate differently depending on who you’re asking. For one woman, an unlined bralette is the crème de la crème of the underwear drawer, while for another, it lacks the qualities of a supportive undergarment. No bust is exactly alike, which is all the more reason to highlight the various brands and silhouettes that speak to the nuanced pillars of the most comfortable bras.

When considering what differentiates an everyday comfortable bra from one that might be better reserved for a special occasion, there are a few design components to keep in mind, beginning with fabric. Breathable and soft fabrics are key when it comes to choosing a bra you’ll want to wear repeatedly. Underwire is another consideration—for some, underwire is everything that’s wrong with bras in the first place, while for others, it’s a way to feel like your breasts are receiving ample lift. Other details like cup padding and lining (or lack thereof) come into play when picking your bra as does overall shape ranging from triangle and racerback to balconette and demi-cup.

In essence, there’s no perfect combination for the supremely comfortable bra—it’s all about finding a well-suited style that seamlessly molds to your body. Ahead, 32 of the most comfortable bra options to kickstart your next investment.

Spaghetti Bralette


With a less-is-more attitude, the thin strap bralette feels like a second skin. What’s more—when the weather warms up, you can wear it with an unbuttoned oversized shirt for a stylish flash of skin.

Bralette

What it does:
Bralettes are a bra style without wires or molded cups and with straps that can be thin or lacy. While they are great for coverage and comfort, the simplicity of this type of bra means it doesn’t offer much when it comes to support.

When to wear it:
It depends on the bralette, but you can’t go wrong with wearing it under a tank. Many bralettes can be worn visibly, either alone or styled with a revealing top.

Breast Type:
All breast shapes and smaller breast sizes because of the minimal support.

Strapless Bra

What it does:
Strapless bras support breasts with an underwire and with help from either silicone or rubber lining to prevent slippage. Most also have molded cups to help keep their shape.

When to wear it:
A good strapless bra is a must for every wardrobe. Strapless bras are perfect for wearing under dresses or tops with exposed shoulders. Strapless bras are not all alike, so definitely take it for a test wear to determine whether you’ve found the right type for you. Top things you’ll want to check for: the underwire doesn’t dig into your chest; the band doesn’t slip; it properly supports your breasts; no spillage or gaping in the cups.

Breast Type:
All breast shapes and sizes (as long as you find the right one!).

Balconette Bra


What it does:
As the name suggests, balconette bras act as a sort of balcony for your breasts. This type of bra provides a subtle lift to enhance your natural shape and cleavage.

When to wear it:
The cups are usually designed to have a feminine, sexy look with little coverage. It’s another bra style that can be worn on the regular and is ideal for low-cut tops and dresses.

Breast Type:
All breast shapes, especially those with fuller cup sizes (in comparison to the band).

T-Shirt Bra

What it does:
A t-shirt bra is a type of bra that’s all about comfort. This style is usually seamless with molded cups so as to create a smooth silhouette under your tees.

When to wear it:
T-shirt bras are of course great with t-shirts, but this type of bra is also great under any top, loose or form-fitting.

Breast Type:
All breast shapes and sizes.
