Up until recently, women everywhere have faced a quandary, wear an underwire bra that looks great but pinches, pokes, and chafes, or forsake appearances and solid support for a wire free bra. Wireless bras are meant to move with your body and provide ultimate comfort and flexibility without constricting the chest area of putting undue pressure on the back. However, while undeniably the healthier and more comfortable alternative, wire free bras have never been considered the best option for lift, support, or sex appeal, particularly for larger busted women. Luckily, now there are quite a few options in the wire free department that provide the whole package (comfort, lift, support, and a sexy shape) regardless of your size. Read on to discover five wire free bras that support you while remaining comfortable.
Spanx Bra-llelujah! Wireless Front Closure Bra
Boasting uplifting support as well as maximum comfort, this wire free option is perfect for the well endowed. It comes with a hefty price tag, but perfection ain’t free, right? The Bra-llelujah! comes with full support, softly padded cups, and claims to reduce the appearance of unsightly "back fat" to boot.
Victoria’s Secret Biofit Wireless Bra
For women with smaller to medium sized breasts, this bra offers subtle to moderate padding, depending on your size, and a deep “V” front for extra cleavage. To top it off, the smooth satin material and the adjustable straps make the Biofit a winner in the comfort department. In terms of price, it’s less expensive than the Spanx Bra-llelujah! but is still pricey considering complaints regarding its longevity.
Bali Concealers Wire Free Bra
Bali is definitely a heavy hitter in the wireless category. With its seamless cups and variety of styles and colors, the Bali Concealers is a great choice for all breast sizes. Moreover, it now includes special concealer “petals” inside the cups to prevent embarrassing “headlight” moments. At $27, it’s one of the more moderately priced bras in its class.
Playtex: 18 Hour Original Comfort Strap Wire Free Bra
At $20, the Playtex 18 Hour Original Wire Free Bra is probably the biggest bang for your buck. This bra, which comes in up to a G cup, has wide, cushioned straps that will stay put all day. Its beautifully laced cups provide contouring without sacrificing comfort. The Playtex was made to flatter and fit fuller figures, and it lives up to its name.
Gap Favorite Wireless Bra
For A, B, and C cup sizes, the Gap Favorite Wireless Bra is definitely a favorite. Made of a fine gauge microfiber, it’s soft, comfortable, and molds to your body for a smooth but perky shape. Additionally, it’s well made and won’t fall apart if you toss it in the washing machine (although this is not recommended for any bra). Considering its reasonable price tag, mid to small chests can’t go wrong with this option.
Of course, you should try on many different wire free bras before deciding on which one will go home with you. Good luck, and have fun!
