I Wore This Wireless Bra for 18 Hours Straight, and I Still Love It
Last week I hopped off the plane at JFK, with a smile and a comfy bra. Repeat that to the tune of Miley Cryus's "Party in the U.S.A." and the statement becomes all the more catchy — and intriguing because, well, comfy bra what? I'll get to that in a second, but first some background: I recently took my first overseas trip since the pandemic, and to say I was a little bit of a mess leading up to it is an understatement, so much so that I nearly forgot how to pack. But what I didn't forget was the importance of a cozy outfit and, of course, a comfortable bra.
My flight to Germany was about 13 hours, which is doable, but I traveled for a total of 18 hours on my way back to New York City this last weekend (those layovers, though). For my flight to and from Europe, I reached for a waffle-knit sweatsuit from The Range and a supportive wireless bra from True & Co, the brand behind those bralettes and bras known for their second-skin feel.
I hadn't tried True & Co's bras up until an hour before I left for my flight to Germany. I know, it's risky to try a bra for the first time ever when you'll be stuck on a plane, but the second I put on the True Body Lift V-Neck Bra on in NYC on the morning of September 28, 2021, I knew it was the right decision.

It was comfortable from the moment I slipped it over my head, and it felt silky soft against my skin thanks to its buttery smooth fabric — the brand's softest yet. Since it's wireless, there was absolutely zero digging into my ribcage, and the wide straps felt so good on my shoulders, I barely noticed them. I think I've made it pretty clear that this bra is extremely comfortable, but it also offered a really nice shape thanks to those (removable) pads. I was in love.
When I made it to Germany on September 29th, I realized that I might have just found the best wireless bra on earth. I didn't even want to take it off, and with other bras, I usually can't wait to. I told my mom, grandma, and sister about it. Put simply, I've never felt so comfortable wearing a bra during my travels, and I have been on my fair share of hours-long flights.
A quick look at the Amazon reviews shows I'm not the only one who's in love with this bra. In fact, even self-proclaimed bra haters are fans.
"I love this bra. No, it's not sexy, but it is ridiculously comfortable and I don't want to rip it off at the end of the day like I do with my other bras," wrote one reviewer. "I love that the back of the bra is wide and flat. No more bulging over the top and bottom of the back bra strap… it fits perfectly and offers plenty of support for the girls!"
If you, too, want a supportive wireless bra you can actually stand to wear (again, I had mine on for 18 hours straight), this is the one for you. Shop it on Amazon and experience next level bra comfort for yourself. Pinky promise.
