Supportive and pretty everyday wireless bra

Does it exist?!?

I am really struggling to find a bra or bralette that is comfortable, supportive AND attractive, so am hoping the collective wisdom of MN can come to my rescue please.

It needs to be wireless and made of natural fabrics. I am currently wearing Sloggi Zero Feel and although it’s really comfortable I find it gets a bit sweaty and doesn’t provide enough support (I have a physically active job). Uniqlo airism seamless look similar, but again aren’t made with natural fabrics so I imagine will also get sweaty.

Not sure of my exact size, probably around a 36D.

As long as it gets Radio Four loud and clear, I don't mind which one I use, personally.

Don't buy M&S Body non wired smoothing bralet. It promises the world and does not deliver in any way!
I haven't found anything to replace it with so can offer no further help, sorry. Watching with interest to see what others suggest.

Boody! Changed my life.

Have some lovely figleaves ones - not sure what the fabric is though

@Time40 errrr.....ok.

@schitter I haven’t trusted M&S bras for years now, but thank you smile

@LaLoose Those look really promising, thank you! Do you find they keep their shape well after multiple washes?

@Trying81 Would be interested to know what figleaves ones you mean please

First things first, if you want a bra that's comfortable and supportive, you need to get your size right. Measure using this guide booborbust.com/

I'd look at the Bravissimo website as a starting point.

Yes they do! I was also dubious. But I'm 32D and I've washed and worn mine so often that the flesh-coloured one isn't any more... They are totally life-changing. These days when my Boodys are all in the wash and I have to wear something else I feel like I have a leather belt squeezing my ribcage!

@BestestBrownies - a joke! Wireless = old name for a radio

BuffaloCauliflower Thu 29-Oct-20 17:09:51

Have a measure using Boob or Bust first so you know what size you’re actually dealing with

BestestBrownies Thu 29-Oct-20 17:24:36

@AnotherEmma I just tried that calculator and came out as 34H!!! That can’t be right surely?!?

@LaLoose thanks again for the feedback

@Time40 D’oh! Bit slow to get that one, sorry!

This one, I ended up buying one in every colour as it fit so well

Thanks @Trying81 but I’m not keen on bras that squish my boobs into cleavage as I find it really uncomfortable (have a big gap between/set wide apart. Appreciate the effort though smile

It absolutely is right! The right size bra was an absolute revelation for me. I was so much comfortable and my boobs looked so much better, plus clothes looked better and I actually looked slimmer.

You need to try bras on obviously and some brands/styles will fit differently (just as dress sizes can differ between shops) but 34H will be a good starting point for you.

Tbh if you're an H cup or thereabouts, none of the above suggestions will be much good for you. I'm a 34HH atm (funnily enough) and I need bras that are specifically for big cup sizes.

Try the Cake Sugar Candy bra, it's surprisingly supportive for a non-wired bra and very comfortable.

(It says sleep bra but I find it supportive enough to wear in the daytime.)

Bravissimo have some pretty options

34H sounds much more likely. It’s a starting size not an exact science though, join the Facebook group for more guidance if you’re on there
