what is a wireless-bra

Though bras have been around for over a century, wireless bras (or wire-free bras) have become increasingly popular in the last few years.

What is a wireless bra?

A wireless bra is a bra without underwire. Bralettes and sports bras without wire can also be considered wireless bras.

When would you wear a wireless bra?

Wire-free bras can be worn while sleeping and lounging and on days when you’re experiencing any breast tenderness or soreness. They’re comfortable enough to wear during your period and they’re often recommended as maternity bras.

Why choose a wireless bra?

Some women like the comfort of a wireless bra while others prefer the freedom of a bra without wire. Bralettes are now more popular than ever and offer women another option to add to their lingerie wardrobe.

Does anyone make wireless bras for G cups?

Yes! In fact, we designed a bralette specifically for larger busts. A new addition to our Spring/Summer 2018 line-up, the Adriana Lace Bralette is a beautiful bralette available in bra sizes 30-42D-FF and 30-40G. Don’t worry, this isn’t just another pretty bra – it’s also a supportive bralette with a J-hook (fancy term for a plastic hook that attaches like a bra clip) that converts the bra’s straps from regular to racerback.

This bralette also boasts a wider underband for extra support, seamed cups that flatter your shape, and thicker straps for comfort. Plus, it’s lightly lined for opacity and coverage, so you won’t have to worry about nipples showing through. We love this bra on its own or under a sheer or low-cut top.

I need a wireless bra in an A cup that I can wear to work. What would you recommend?

If you’re looking for a wire-free bra that will virtually disappear until t-shirts and button-down shirts, check out our Emma Wire-Free Soft Padded Bra. This minimalist bra constructed in comfortable microfiber bra has smooth, seamless cups with light padding for lift and convertible straps for maximum versatility. The plunging neckline works with a multitude of shirts and dresses, so you’ll never have to change your bra if you’re going out after work.

I’m looking for a pretty wire-free bra that isn’t a bralette. Where can I find one?

It sounds like our Aline Wire-Free Padded Bra is just what you need. This smooth style has molded cups for a rounded shape under t-shirts and a low-cut neckline to work under your favorite shirts. Like the Emma Wire-Free Bra, this style features seamless cups and a supportive band that won’t let you down. We love the subtly striped jacquard fabric and sweet bow details.

Where can I find a cotton or modal bralette?

The Dalis Bralette is the #1 bra on our fall shopping list. We’re obsessed with the beauty and simplicity of this supportive style. It features stretch lace along the armholes, neckline, and straps and a J-hook to convert it into a racerback style. A great everyday bra, the super soft, seamed cups and wide band also provide comfortable support for sleeping or lounging. We’re can’t wait to pick up this style in Black, Navy, and Nude this fall!
