whats the best bra to wear under t shirts

You’ve tried on all your bras (plus an adhesive bra and even going without one), but nothing feels right. You’re not sure if you can work with the bras you have or if you’ll need to buy a new one for your outfit. Sound familiar? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

In this series, we’re tackling your lingerie questions and sharing the best bras to wear for every occasion.

First up: t-shirt bras. If you’ve ever wondered “What type of bra should I wear for t-shirts?”, this guide is for you. It also applies to fitted tops and dresses, too (basically anything you’d want your bra to disappear under).

Here are our top picks for a seamless look:

Best Full Coverage T-Shirt Bra

Jeanie T-Shirt Bra

For a full coverage fit, the Jeanie T-Shirt Bra is your best bet. This seamless bra features smooth molded cups for a rounded look under clothing and wide wings for extra support. It’s also a bandless style – meaning there isn’t any additional fabric (the band) below the cups. This keeps the cups from digging into the fleshy part of your ribcage and makes the bra more comfortable.

Best Wireless T-Shirt Bra

Aline Wire-Free Padded Bra

The Aline Wire-Free Padded Bra makes a great t-shirt bra. The seamless cups, smooth microfiber fabric, and wide underband add comfort, support, and versatility to a beautifully classic design. The band features side boning to keep the bra in place and wide adjustable straps. This style flatters a multitude of breast shapes and proves that supportive wireless bras do exist!

Best Plunge T-Shirt Bra

There are plenty of plunge t-shirt bras out there, but we’re confident you haven’t tried anything like this one. The Emma Plunge Molded Bra is an excellent choice for a t-shirt bra. The plunging neckline works under low-cut and v neck tops while the seamless design ensures it will be virtually undetectable almost any outfit.

Pro tips

If you’re wearing a white t-shirt, look for a shade that matches your skin tone as closely as possible for a seamless look. Pay close attention to the shirt’s fabric too. If it’s sheer or see-through, opt for a bustier or bralette to make a subtle statement. Another option? Don’t rule out pink and red bras under a white t-shirt as they may work for you too.

We Highly Recommend

Whether you’re shopping for new everyday bras or lingerie for a special occasion, it’s always a good idea to seek out a second opinion. We know how hard it is to find bras that fit well and feel good, especially when you’re doing it on your own. If you’ve ever felt unsure about your bra size or you just don’t know where to go to find good bras, it’s time to let a bra fitter help.

Many specialty lingerie boutiques offer bra fittings. Their expert bra fitters will take the pain and frustration out of bra shopping and do all the work for you. Even better, their product knowledge can save you time and money. Plus, they know where all of the best bras are hiding.

If you’ve struggled with finding bras in the right size, it’s time to make a change. Visit our specialty store locator to find a store near you and schedule an appointment.

Happy bra shopping!
