Non-wired bra - comfortable, supportive AND pretty?

Can anyone recommend any?

I am 32D, wide but not very full. Not saggy but heavy enough to need support. I'm a smaller back than 32 but have protruding ribs and find straps with wires uncomfortable.

All recommendations welcome! Thanks

I've been living in sports bras. Don't know why I ever wore a "normal" bra

I like the Calvin Klein racer back with light padding, forget what it is really called. I think it looks nice but it's probably not pretty exactly. Comfy and good shape.

The M&S bralettes are actually very comfortable and supportive, I'm a 32GG so I would think if you're a D they'd be brilliant. I have however now totally switched to wearing molke bras - not pretty but hands down the most comfortable, flattering and supportive bras i have ever owned.

This bra is the most amazing piece of clothing. I gasped when I tried it on! sloggi zero feel bralette

Ooh, that Sloggi one looks comfy!

The M&S ones. Really comfy, good shape, 2 for £20.

I've just bought some M&S non wired bras, I'm 32F and never thought I'd get away with a non wired bra, but my goodness, they are fab. I'll never go backk to wired now.

I'm 46yrs, 36B and finding underwired bras so uncomfortable now. Is it me, my age or are people ditching normal bras for non underwired bralettes? I bought a bralette the other day - similar to a crop top - and found it so comfy I am inclined to replace most of my bras and wondered if there's an evolutional thing happening with bras or ice just hit middle age when we seek out comfier clothing ?

Oh god I've found my people. I am a 30D/32c, completely flat chested as like the op I have a very wide cup but not fullness, and can count my ribs through my boobs. anything wired is an implement of torture. I wear 'bralets' now for every day use although they do give a certain 'monoboob' look, but for special occasions I have found decent non wire in matalan, primark and M&S. it's hit and miss though.

My favourite bra tops are my yoga vest tips with built in bra.

I've fallen in love with the Tu at Sainsbury's non wired cropped top type bras. I'm a 36 DD but recently had breast surgery. I thought these type of bras would never be supportive enough but my God they are bliss! Mine are lace trimmed and give a lovely smooth shape. I can't imagine going back to "normal" bras now.

Cosabella bralettes are amazing. I'm a 30E and never thought I'd find a comfortable non-wired bra: most non-wired bras for large boobs just substitute the wire with a massive, even more uncomfortable band of elastic. The Cosabella ones don't and are comfortable, but also supportive. And they look pretty, unlike most bras for the big norked.

TheFormiddableMrsC I agree, I've just bought Sainsbury's crop top and will be wearing these under clothes I can get away with, so comfortable , to hell with sexiness!
