I'm Serious About Comfort, and These 25 Cotton Bras Pass the Test

These days, there are about 100 different types of bras and materials to choose between, from seamless and extra-padded bras to unlined and underwire bras. But when it comes to comfort, none usurp a good cotton bra. It's really the next best thing to being braless, and when you've spent a lifetime wearing ultra-structured bras with underwires, you know just how big that is. 

Since we're firm believers that great lingerie is also meant to be seen, feel free to incorporate these options into your everyday outfits too. Brands have stepped it up lately on the aesthetic front, so these cotton bras are as pretty as they are practical.

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
