Lately, I've been putting more thought into my bra collection. No one wants a bra with a band that digs and cuts into their sides—uncomfortable is an understatement. These are the bras that give others a bad name, the kind you can't wait to go home and take off. Luckily, not all bras are like this, and some online reviewers did the work for us, helping us find the best ones out there.

I took it upon myself to search through top retailers like Nordstrom and Shopbop for the styles reviewers specifically highlight as back-friendly. I read through 746 reviews to find the best back-smoothing bras, and below, I'm outlining my findings (along with some of what the reviewers themselves had to say). 

Next up: six outdated spring trends and six that are fresher than ever.
