Everyone knows that bras (yes, even those of the unlined, wireless type) can be uncomfortable. The idea of unhooking this particular lingerie piece alone has become a major mood that many of us know and love, especially at the end of a long and tiring day. If we could forgo bras completely, chances are we would. But we also can’t ignore the amount of support they give (which, in some cases, is greatly appreciated).
Finding the best comfortable bra brands is no easy feat, but luckily it isn’t a path that goes entirely unbeaten. And those who have gone this road before have been thoughtful enough to leave honest reviews about the styles they love.
After sifting through to find the best of the best, we gathered the 16 bras that real women have deemed the most comfortable. Scroll on to see what they have to say, and then shop and try them out yourself.
1. B.Tempt'd by WacoalFuture Foundation Contour Bra
"This bra is so comfortable that I find myself reaching for it day in and day out. The fabric feels so soft and cups provide just the right amount of coverage for my 34C size. There is no slipping off the shoulders and it provides a great lift and shape. I can wear this all day without realizing I have it on. I love this bra and it is my new favorite!" — Shopbop customer
2. Calvin Klein Underwear Seductive Comfort Customized Fit Bra
"This silhouette is my favorite day to day bra. It's soft, comfortable, and gives you the right amount of support. The elastic, stitching and clasp show the detail in quality. I'm confident they will last a long time. Definitely will be buying more." —Cuup customer
"I am small around and have implants. I'm about a 32 D but am finding it impossible to find a good supportive bralette. I'm sure this will stretch out and I need to get the straps shortened a bit, but I LOVE this bralette. Really wish they would have more colors and carry it consistently for us enhanced girls." — Nordstrom customer
"I was very skeptical about this bra being both comfortable and deliver the lift/support needed without a wire. It did not let me down! This is seriously the most comfortable bra. I wore it all day with no issues. It feels like wearing a bralette but had the support and look of a 'regular' bra. I'd highly recommend." — Nordstrom customer
"Love this bra! I've tried numerous wireless bras and this one is the most comfortable. I usually change out of my bras the moment I get home, however with this one, it's so comfortable I don't bother. It does only offer light support, but it has enough liner to not feel exposed." — Nordstrom customer
"After extensively searching for the perfect bra, I have finally found it. This is now the only bra I wear. The cups don't gap and the band is comfortable. It gives great shape and a little bit of lift, without having padding." — Nordstrom customer
"I've been searching with no success to find the right bra - thank you Negative!! I have a smaller chest and wanted something comfy that would actually fit me (no gaps), and no wires. Bralettes always have the weird seem down the middle of the cup but this bra is seemless! This fits like a second skin. I can wear it all day without discomfort. I've even fallen asleep in it. I don't even notice it." — Negative Underwear customer
"I have never been able to find a bra that fit right. I was either overflowing or I had a gap at the top. It was so frustrating. I never felt like I could sit up straight without overflowing. This bra is the one that I can wear and have no idea that I have it on. It is AMAZING!" — ThirdLove customer
15. True & Co. True Body Triangle Convertible Bralette
"I saw this highlighted in a style magazine and ordered two items. Unbelievable comfort. I winced at the price, but if they last a couple of years, I will consider this a great purchase. Try this—it was a great purchase for me." — Nordstrom customer
16. Wacoal Ultimate Side Smoother Underwire T-Shirt Bra
