How To Shop For Wireless Bras
Wireless bras are finally having their moment. Since the bralette trend took off several seasons ago, we’ve been seeing an increase in the amount of wire-free bras on the market and we couldn’t be more excited.
Women wear wireless bras for different reasons. Some like the comfort and fit of a wireless bra while others love the look of a sexy wire-free bralette. Wireless bras can be worn for a number of occasions – from work to weekend and beyond and suit all breast shapes and bra sizes.
Wondering how to find the perfect wireless bra? Read on for our top shopping tips.
Seek supportive features
It might seem like wireless bras aren’t as supportive as wired bras, but that isn’t the case. By constructing wireless bras with wide, supportive bra bands in sturdy fabrics, lingerie brands are able to create a superior fit – no underwire needed. For the most supportive fit, seek out a wireless bra with a snug band and seamed or padded cups. Thick, adjustable straps provide comfort for your shoulders and a J-hook, like the one found on the Adriana Lace Bralette, only add to the versatility. Aside from being able to wear it regular or racerback, the Adriana Lace Bralette features seamed, lined cups that lift and shape the bust and a supportive lined bra band with a multi-hook and eye closure – proving that comfort and support are possible in a wireless bra.

Consider the occasion
Are you shopping for wireless bras to wear everyday? Or maybe you’re looking for a bra to wear to sleep, on the weekends, or when you’re lounging at home and want a little support. It all depends on where you’re planning on wearing your wireless bras. For example, with its smooth moulded cups and minimalist design, the Emma Wire-Free Soft Padded Bra makes the perfect wire-free bra to wear to work. Aside from being incredibly comfortable, it features padded cups that offer light lift and a rounded shape under clothing – making it an ideal bra for t-shirts too.
Bralettes are easily the number one lingerie choice for the weekend or for sleeping, lounging, or relaxing. They can be styled in a number of ways and many look stunning when worn as outerwear or under a sheer top for date night. From lace to mesh and modal to satin, a bralette is a beautiful investment for any lingerie wardrobe.

Get the size right
The key to a perfect fitting bra always lies in the fit. Full busts, plus size busts, and full figure busts may prefer the fit of a bra-sized wireless bra or bralette as opposed to a S, M, or L bralette. Women with small busts or petite busts may opt for a padded wireless bra in their bra size or a barely there bralette depending on their style preferences. A bra fitting is crucial to finding bras that fit well and feel amazing – no matter what style they are. We recommend getting a bra fitting at a local lingerie boutique if you’re having trouble finding wireless bras that fit. A bra fitter can determine your bra size and personal shop for wire-free bras that suit your bust and your budget. Perfect!
