Our Top Picks

What We Love: It boasts convertible straps and cooling fabric.
What We Don't Love: The convertible clip in the back may snag long hair.

This bra from Hanes is a winner for its versatility and comfortable support. Made from a four-way stretch material that moves with you, the undergarment features a moisture-wicking lining to keep you dry and cool throughout the day. T-shirt bras already go seamlessly under most tees, but this style has convertible straps, so you can wear it as a racerback under tank tops as well. And if you're worried about anything showing through tight tops, the design has no tags and built in petals to conceal your nipples. Available in over 10 shades, you can stock up on a few pairs to go with different colored outfits.

What We Love The modern shape and brushed fabric looks great under form-fitting clothes.
What We Don't Love: The side boning may take some getting used to.

This Wacoal option is one of the most popular wireless bras for a reason. Besides being made from a super soft brushed fabric, it features foam-lined cups and side boning to provide support and shape. A clean-tailored finish at neckline and underarms means no lines or bulges under your favorite tee.

Size Range: 30A-40DDD | Colors: 8 | Materials: 81% Nylon, 19% Spandex

Best Padded: ThirdLove Form Seamless V-Neck Wireless Bra

What We Love: Light padding offers a little lift.
What We Don't Love: The band runs a little small.

This lightly padded option from ThirdLove proves that just because a bra is wire-free doesn't mean it can't provide a little lift. "It's made with foam cups for smoothing support and has an adjustable back and straps for a more customized fit than most wireless bras," says Cohen. The v-neck design fits perfectly under low cut tops, proving that you can wirefree bras out and about, not just lounging at home.

Size Range: XS-3X | Colors: 11 | Materials: 81% Nylon, 19% Spandex

Best Strapless: Soma Enbliss Stay-Put Wireless Strapless Bra

What We Love: It does the impossible of staying up even without underwire.
What We Don't Love: The full coverage cups may not work with low cut tops.

A wirefree, strapless bra that stays up may sound too good to be true, but let this style from Enbliss change your mind. Cohen recommends looking for a strapless bra with a tall back closure for maximum support. "The taller the back closure is, the wider the band will be," she says. "A wider band will provide more support and smoothing properties than a narrow band."

This style by Soma has a four hook cushioned back closure making for a wide band. Full coverage contoured cups give a natural yet defined shape rather than a strapless uniboob. The bra also comes with removable straps that can be worn five different ways. If you love experimenting with different tops but don't want to give up the comfort of going wireless, this is the bra for you.

What We Love: Front closure makes this bra super easy to put on.
What We Don't Love: The straps aren't adjustable.

The bra that "ruined all other bras" for one InStyle writer just got even more comfortable by going wireless. This best-selling Spanx bra features molded cups and a front closure design for complete comfort. What really sets it apart from other options on the market is its patented SmartStretch straps that are made from the same soft and stretchy material as Spanx's hosiery. These supportive and smoothing straps are specially designed to never fall down, though it's important to note that they aren't adjustable.

In addition to lightly contoured cups, it features a thick underband that supports your bust from underneath and sturdy straps that are adjustable from the front for added convenience.

What We Love: You get two bras in one.
What We Don't Love: The pullover design can be hard to put on and off.

The Breast of Both Worlds Reversible Comfort Bra is another one of Spanx's best-selling options, and it's easy to see why. Along with being super supportive and comfortable, the slip-on bra features a ribbed band that keeps the bra in place, so you don't have to worry about it riding up as you move around. It comes with removable pads for extra coverage, and it's fully reversible, meaning you're essentially getting two bras for the price of one.

What We Love: This cool-touch bra smoothes you from all angles.
What We Don't Love: Some say the bra's padding is thicker than they would like.

This wire-free bra from Bali features thick straps, a wide band, and molded cups that work together to lift and shape your bust while smoothing out your sides and back. The U-back stops the straps from slipping and is good for low-back designs. And with moisture-wicking fabric, you'll stay cool and comfortable even on hotter days.

Along with an ultra-supportive design, this full-coverage, wireless bra from Playtex boasts cushioned straps that don't dig in and rounded cups that provide a natural shape. The brand's Magic Rings feature seams that support you from the bottom up for a sexy, natural lift. Higher sides smooth you all around while the cooling fabric wicks away sweat. We also like the sweet touches of lace trim and floral fabric.

What We Don't Love: The thinner band and straps may not be supportive enough for bigger chests.

The brand is called negative for a reason — it feels like you have nothing on. The best selling sieve bra is made from Belgian micromesh for breathable comfort and sheer sexiness. Still, the style provides impressive support for sizes up to G. If you fall in love with the bra, you can buy it in packs of three for extra savings.

What to Keep in Mind

Size

The most important thing to keep in mind while bra shopping is finding your correct size. Today it's easier than ever to find your correct size even when shopping online as many sites offer virtual fitting rooms that guide you through the process of measuring your band and cup size.

Cups

Wireless bras come in all cup styles, from full coverage to plunge to push up. Choosing the right one comes down to your personal preference as well as breast shape. Cohen breaks down the common breasts shapes and the ideal cups for each:

Athletic: Wider breasts with more muscle and less tissue tend to have a problem with cup gaping.
Try: T-shirt style bras.

Asymmetrical: One breast is larger than the other.
Try: A bra that can give you an instant lift but also the option to incorporate an insert on one side to give your smaller breast a boost.

Bell: Breasts are slimmer at the top and fuller at the bottom.
Try: A full coverage bra that features wider, memory foam straps that provide support but never dig in.

Relaxed: Breasts have lax tissue and nipples pointing downward.
Try: A balconette style bra that has a slightly shorter cup for more fullness at the top.

East West: Breasts have nipples that point to the east and west, creating wide-set breasts.
Try: If you are struggling to achieve cleavage with certain tops, look for full coverage bras that will help bring your breasts up and together.

Adjustability

Some wireless bras are pull-on styles, which are great when you don't like bulky hardware. However, adjustable straps and hook and eye closures can offer a more precise fit, especially if your size tends to fluctuate. When buying a new bra, it's best to find a size you can close on the middle hook rather than the tightest one, as the bra will likely stretch with time.

Materials

For the comfiest wireless bra, look for styles made out of breathable cotton, which also is a great material for t-shirt bras as it lies seamlessly under most clothes. Lace or mesh bralettes can be sweet and sexy and styled as a top. Many bras are made from moisture-wicking materials to help you stay dry and cool.

Your Questions, Answered

What are the pros and cons of a wireless bra?

The main advantage of a wireless bra is that there is no underwire, which some people find overly restrictive and uncomfortable. But without the underwire, wireless bras tend to offer less support and definition than traditional bras, says Cohen.

This lack of support and definition isn't always a con. For instance, those with smaller breasts tend to find that wireless bras offer all the support they need without sacrificing any comfort. Or if you like to sleep in a bra, a wireless style keeps you supported without any wires poking or pinching your skin during the night. Sometimes it's an aesthetic choice to go with a wireless bra that offers a more natural shape like a lace bralette or seamless bandeau.

To get the best of both worlds, you can have a mix of underwire and wireless bras in your collection to choose from for different outfits and occasions. Whenever you are looking for comfortable support, just reach for a wireless bra.

Can I wear a wireless bra if I have a large chest?

Definitely, says Cohen. "I personally don't believe there's anything you 'can' or 'can't' do based on the size of your breasts, whatever makes you feel most comfortable and confident is what you should do," she says. . "Some features to look for in a wireless bra that will be most supportive for a larger breast size include wide straps, removable cups for definition and coverage, and a smoothing fit that doesn't pinch, squash, or squeeze."

Can I machine wash wireless bras?

While wireless bras may seem more low maintenance than their underwire counterparts, it's best to double check with the individual product label on how to properly care for it. Some styles still need to be hand washed to preserve the shape and material.

How often should I replace my bra?

Cohen recommends replacing your bras every six months to a year, depending on how frequently you wear them. Having several different bras in your rotation is a good way to avoid too much wear-and-tear in a single bra, extending the lifespan of your lingerie collection.
