Looking for a smooth seamfree bra - but not one of those that can stand up by itself!

I'm looking for a replacement for my much loved Lejaby Nuage Opaline bras but can't find anything remotely similar.

I want an underwired and seamfree smooth fit - think second skin - that looks invisible under clothes. Most bras that I see stand to attention by themselves, or are so fancy (albeit very pretty) that they ruin the look of a tee shirt.

Any recommendations? Thanks.

Got a t-shirt bra in M&S that sounds like just what you are looking for.

Lejaby still do the nuage I think - have a look on figleaves. Alternatively, Wolford, and Bodas do similar

Chantelle do one. Slight lace in the middle.

Triumph do one. They sell it at John lewis.

Agree about the "t-shirt bra" thing - those rigid ones that stand up by themselves create such a ridge of fabric vs skin that they may as well have a whopping big seam.

Sadly whilst Lejaby still do the nuage range (and I have some) they don't do the opaline style any more. It was quite a bit different to the other nuage styles fit and fabric wise.

Will take a look at Chantelle and Triumph and see how they come up. Many moons ago Sloggi and Pretty Polly made some lovely smooth styled bras but I've not seen any of later years. I've seen some that have double layered cups, but I'm not keen on them.

Looks like a John Lewis trip coming up lol.
