what is wire free bra

There’s no denying we love our underwire bras. They do wonders for sculpting our bust into a lifted, rounded shape, and they offer up plenty of support — which is obviously super important for breasts of any size. That said, wireless bras can be super beneficial, too.

Sometimes, you just want to ditch the wire — and it could be for a variety of reasons. Maybe you just had surgery, and a wire-free bra feels a little gentler on your chest. Maybe you just find them more comfortable (though let’s be clear: underwire bras should never be painful or uncomfortable — that’s a sign that they don’t fit properly or are past their prime).

Regardless of your reasoning for wanting to incorporate wire-free bras into your collection, rest assured there are several ways to do so.

Here are just a few of our favorite ways to embrace wireless bras:

On lazy Sundays

Lounge around in style in a chic, wire-free bralette. Because who says you can’t be comfy and chic at the same time? A bralette with all-over lace in a rich blue or pink hue is bound to brighten up a lazy Sunday at home whipping up brunch, reading a good book, or cuddling with your one and only.

Wear it under a racerback tank, a slouchy off-the-shoulder T-shirt, or even a little nightie for a laid-back yet luxe look.

Going to sleep

Every woman has different preferences when it comes to the underthings they sleep in. Personally, as a full-busted lady, I prefer to sleep in a bra — it’s simply more comfortable for me to feel contained up top. However, wearing an underwire bra may feel a bit heavy duty for resting. That’s why heading off to sleep is the perfect time to slip on a soft cup bra instead.

A soft and stretchy modal bralette is simply perfect for snoozing in. Wear it with a pair of panties and nothing else, or layer it under an oversized T-shirt, PJs, or a chemise nightie. However you choose to sport this piece to bed, you’re bound to sleep soundly with it on. It provides just enough support without being too over-the-top for resting in.

Running errands

Whether you’re running to the dry cleaner’s and the grocery store or doing some holiday shopping, errands call for a bra that’s structured yet also super comfortable.

That’s where a wire-free padded bra comes in. Despite the fact that it doesn’t have underwire, it still offers ample support thanks to the padded, separated cups, and adjustable band and straps. That means your bust will feel super secure, but you’ll be as comfortable as possible jetting around from A to B checking things off your to-do list.

The best part? A soft-cup padded bra with a plunge neck is also surprisingly versatile and flattering: it can easily transition from errands to drinks with the girls or date night with that special someone. That means you won’t even have to stop home in between doing your shopping and other tasks and heading to that new bar downtown. This is a bra that can pretty much do it all — and it doesn’t even have underwire!

There are so many wonderful ways to embrace wire-free bras. Contrary to popular belief, wireless bras can still lend lots of support and shaping (with the right features, of course). Next time you’re lounging around the house, heading off to sleep or running some casual errands, consider a soft cup bra so you can be as comfortable as possible without compromising on your style.
