What feels better than taking off an uncomfortable bra at the end of the day? How about not wearing an uncomfortable bra to begin with?
It may have taken a global pandemic, but it seems we’ve finally realized that we don’t have to settle for bras that poke, squeeze, dig and jab. And after fully embracing all things athleisure, it’s hard to consider wearing anything that’s not cozy and hug-like. Unfortunately, “regular life” means that you might occasionally have to ditch the leggings. But one thing you can wear every single day? A comfortable bra.
How do you choose a comfortable bra?
Arguably the most complicated garment in one’s wardrobe, bra preference is deeply personal. No two breasts are alike (not even the pair you’ve got, most likely), and styles that one person swears by might not work at all for another.
For me, comfort isn’t just the absence of itchy tags, tight straps and structure. Personally, the only time I’m sans bra is when I’m literally horizontal. A comfortable bra in my world is one that offers shape and support while allowing me to completely forget I’m wearing it. That said, I’ve asked Team Motherly and consulted all across the internet to find the most comfortable bras on the market. From bras to bralettes, wirefree to underwire, I’ve rounded up cozy boob-supporting options for a wide range of style preferences and sizes that you won’t want to fling off at the end of the day. Each option provides lift and support without the dreaded uniboob because no one ever asked for that. We just lived with it. No more!
