Let’s be honest: Bras—and even bralettes—can get uncomfortable. After all, one of the most exciting things look forward at the end of the day is being able to take them off. Of course, we appreciate the extra support they provide, and when you could wear the most comfortable bra brands, why wouldn’t you?
We’ve already created a definitive guide to the most comfortable bras according to real reviewers on the internet, but as fashion editors, we’ve also tested out our own share of underpinnings—and we’ve discovered which brands have become our favorites thanks to the comfort they so kindly provide.
Now we’re sharing them with you! If you’re ready to get the most comfortable bras we’re loving, scroll down to see them all, and then shop our favorite styles from each one below. Tried and true, there are some bra brands we never want to take off.
“This probably isn’t something to brag about, but I never really wear real bras—only bralettes. Over the years, I’ve acquired like seven different colors of this Aritzia one, so I’m in it almost every day. It’s got just enough support for me, but it’s still so comfortable and easy to stay in all day.” — Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour, market editor
Calvin Klein Underwear
“When it comes to comfort, nothing compares to Calvin Klein bras—especially this one, which is free underwires. It’s the perfect style to layer under T-shirts or on its own beneath an oversize blazer.” — Kristen Nichols, managing editor
“The bras I own and wear the most due to comfort are from Lively. My personal favorite is this strapless bra. I love it so much that I even put the straps on and wear it as a normal bra too. It doesn’t dig into your sides or slip down, and the lace is so pretty compared to most other strapless bras out there.” — Lauren Eggertsen, fashion editor
“I’m also a huge fan of the brand’s bralettes. I wear a 34C, and these support me the most out of any bralette I’ve ever worn.” — Lauren Eggertsen
“I’ve been wearing Natori bras for years and have yet to meet one I don’t love. I don’t really go for bras that look like ‘comfortable’ bras (i.e., very plain and boring), but Natori’s are really pretty. Even the more plain styles have pretty details.” — Allyson Payer, editor
“Negative Underwear’s underwire bra honestly made me rethink all my other bras after I tried it. I regularly forget I’m even wearing it, thanks to the silky fabric and lighter-than-air design—something I can attest to for their underwear as well. It’s safe to say I won’t be going back to other bra brands anytime soon.” — Anna LaPlaca, assistant editor
“I’m very loyal to the Victoria’s Secret Body by Victoria Demi Bra, and have been buying new ones it for years and years. The material is so soft, so it’s easy to wear them every single day.” — Erin Fitzpatrick, senior news editor
“Let me introduce you to Proclaim. This bra does it all: It’s wire-free and made of this curiously soft recycled polyester. Not to mention it’s made locally and offers multiple shades of nude.” — Kat Collings, editor in chief
