Every woman knows that nothing can ruin your day faster than an uncomfortable bra, which is why filling your lingerie drawer with options that are as comfy as they are flattering is so important. While there are thousands of bras available to choose from, you’ve probably found out the hard way that many are not as comfortable as they claim to be. 

So instead of wasting time and money on uncomfortable options, we turned to real reviews from shoppers to find out which bras are actually comfortable enough to wear all day (and night) long. These top-rated bras, outlined below, not only have near-perfect ratings, but they also have an overwhelming amount of glowing five-star reviews between them. 

From a flattering everyday bra to a versatile convertible option to a sexy bralette, we’ve rounded up 14 stylish bras that customers say feel so good, you’ll forget you’re even wearing them.  

These are the most comfortable bras to shop:

This strapless bra from Wacoal has a 4.8-star rating with more than 1,200 reviews on Nordstrom, and for good reason. The smoothing bra features molded cups and light foam padding to provide a comfortable, natural shape, while the back and sides have boning and gripper strips to help keep the bra in place. “This bra fit me perfectly. It’s very comfortable and flattering. I have several boatneck tees and I don’t like my bra straps to show. This bra is the perfect solution. I also found out that in hot weather it’s cooler to not have straps on my shoulders. I ended up buying a second one,” raved one customer.

I definitely found it with this bra. I am a 36DD, and this bra provides ample coverage, is sturdy, and is comfortable. I am a woman of color, and the bra was offered in a shade that matched my skin tone as well (finally). I highly recommend,” said one shopper.
