Initially, this bra was rad. I put it on and felt SO comfortable. I immediately recommended it to my friends. But for anyone with large, heavy, or low-hanging breasts, wireless bras are on a timer from the moment you put them on. By the end of the first day, I was constantly re-arranging my boobs, which kept migrating to the front and center of the bra. I wore the bra again the next day, same issue, and slightly worse. Fabric this stretchy, without the aid of structure (like wires) just can’t stand up to hours of wear, over multiple days. Additionally, I live in Texas, where temps in the summer hit triple digits for weeks. I’m not confident that this fabric will handle the heat and sweat of normal activity. I can’t buy a different bra for each day, nor do I see myself hand washing/drip-drying the same bra each night. It’s a lovely, thoughtful design. It’s just not quite there, for me.

4 5

Super comfortable, this style was called “the ultimate lounge bra” by our consumer testers. They especially liked the fabric and the fit, though they said it’s not something they’d wear regularly because it wasn’t supportive enough. Still, they said it was a good cross between a bralette and sports bra. It proved to be durable in lab tests thanks to its ability to recover from being stretched out and the fact that it washed well. Recommended for DD-DDD cups, it’s available in black or nude.

How We Tested: We evaluated the durability of each bra by measuring its ability to recover from being stretched as well as shrinkage and signs of wear after five wash cycles. We also had women from a wide range of sizes wear the bras for a minimum of two days, reporting on aspects like fit, comfort, support, appearance, how well they stayed put, and how easy they were to put on and take off.

I really love this bra so far. I’ve been wearing it everyday. It is not very breathable and the fabric while super comfy seems to dry out my skin a little more than your average bra. I wore it to yoga a few times not the best but not bad and if I have somewhere to go afterward and don’t want to have flat boobs its great!! the comfort and support is worth it. I typically wear 34c but in sports bras I’m usually a small or medium I ordered both andboth fit well but I kept the small because it fit better in the straps and felt like it had more support the medium would probably have been slightly more comfy though. The band at the bottom does roll up and I find my self wiggling it down throughout the day. I hardly notice it at all anymore. It doesn’t create lines If you’re wearing a thin shirt it completely disappears and I love that! It’s not perfect but I am super happy with my purchase!!!

TRUE & CO PICKS + OUTFIT DETAILS:

My personalized bra results told me that I’m a 32C with breasts that are more rounded at the bottom, and that 16% of women also have a similar breast shape and size, according to their data. It then listed my top 3 fitting bras from their collection as well as additional styles made to fit my shape.

Below were my top fitting bras, according to the quiz results:

  • True Body Triangle Convertible Strap

  • True Body Lift Scoop Neck Bra

  • Gramercy Balconette

Given that I often wear v-neck tops as opposed to scoop-neck tops, I opted to try their V-Neck Bra (which is also their best-seller and was listed as an additional recommended style to try) and black v-neck Racerback Tank with a built-in bra. True & Co also sent me the Triangle Convertible Strap bra to try, which also has a low v-neck shape. All of these pieces are from their True Body line. The line is made out of True & Co’s #1 fabric for smooth and comfortable support. I was interested in trying out this line because the True Body pieces are made to seamlessly blend and disappear under your clothing – almost like second skin!

You can find more details below on each of these pieces. I ended up loving the True Body Triangle Convertible Strap bra out of all the pieces I tried! If you’re interested in trying out True & Co, you can use my to get $15 off your order 🙂

A lingerie startup used feedback from 6 million women to make the perfect wireless bra — and it works for larger cup sizes

  • I’ve worn bras for over a decade, but True&Co’s True Body collection has the only seamless bra I’ve tried that actually supports and lifts cup sizes of C-DDD without wires.
  • They have a variety of styles in their True Body collection, but their V Neck Racerback, $58 is my favorite and ultimate weekday warrior.
  • The True Body collection sold out seven times after debut, and every bra falls within the range of $44 – $64. The True Body Lift Bras are now available in sizes up to 42DDD/F.

Like most people who regularly navigate Facebook, I’ve grown a bit suspicious of all the ads chasing me.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve found really great buys that way — Mahabis slippers, Daily Harvest smoothies, Mott & Bow skinny jeans, and Oliberte leather boots come to mind — but there are at least a few companies hiding in that mix who might have a big social media following, but ultimately underdeliver on their promises of comfort, quality, or fit.

True&Co, a brand I found on Facebook, piqued my interest with a wireless bra that was touted as the only one that actually offered support to larger cup sizes. In my experience, though, bras that promise to get rid of wires and still magically provide lift have just been telling all the girls wearing a C or larger only what they wanted to hear. But this collection is different, and it stays true to the big promises.

After testing it out, the V Neck Racerback, $58, part of the True Body collection, is now my favorite bra that I own. It has quickly become my weekday warrior thanks to its impressive, buttery soft comfort and seamless, clean-lined look. And even though there aren’t any wires involved, the V Neck somehow still provides support and lift — though, understandably, still not as much as a traditional bra with some intense wire scaffolding.

The bonded technology means no elastic or bulky, line-disrupting seams; the wire-free channel lends support like underwire without the wire; the “super lift fabric” (a 195g tightly knit blend) provides the noticeable lift and support that usually justifies discomfort in other bras; and the molded cups prevent you from slipping out and getting the dreaded “underboob” that almost uniformly plagues these seamless, “comfort”-first bras. In other words, this bra is not what you think it is. Or, at least, it most certainly was not for me. Even for a DD cup size, this bra still delivered on its rather lofty (pun-intended) claims.

The point is, if you’re looking for a bra that is so comfortable you can forget you have it on, is completely seamless under even close fitting tops, and provides more natural lift than your sports bra for at least a DD, then I’d wager you’ll love the True Body V Neck Racerback — and likely any of the other True Body bras, which mostly differ based on the orientation of the straps and a U or V neck cut. An important thing to note, though, is that these bras are much thinner than one with padding, and for that second-skin fit, you won’t have much coverage.

With prices between $33 and $64, you’re likely to find something that will flatter your shape, meet your lifestyle needs, and fit your budget. Plus, the True Body Lift Bras are now available in sizes up to 42DDD/F.

True & Co

I want everyone to love their underwear as much as I’ve loved the V Neck Racerback, and to be as comfortable in it as I’ve found the True Body collection to be, but I also know that undergarments are subject to more levels of scrutiny and personal preference than most clothing. It does help when being so adamant about recommending them, though, when you consider that their debut collection sold out seven times on its own.

You can shop the beloved True Body collection directly on the site, but you’ll likely want to take their “Top 3” fit test to get instant answers about which sizes and styles you should be buying. They take into account your preferred style, fit, and your own survey answers about things like body proportions, bra fit complaints, and favorite brands (so their recommendations could fluctuate based on the style you’re eyeing).

Plus, they’re using the fit data of 6 million women to help you decide what to buy and to improve the fit of their products. However, if you decide to skip it, you can also find a helpful and easy-to-read conversion key at the bottom of each bra’s individual page.

In my case, I’m really glad I took the fit quiz; on my own, I’m positive I would have bought the wrong size.

The True Body V Neck, $49 gives effortless lift, looks good under anything, and feels like you’re wearing nothing. True & Co

If you’re less interested in the True Body collection, the company also carries lingerie and underwear, as well as many Calvin & Klein bras and underwear options since the 130+-year-old underwear giant’s owner, PVH, recently acquired the five-year-old True&Co (a break from form which suggests magic really is happening here).

I can’t say every piece in the True Body collection will be a perfect match for everyone, but I feel confident telling people that the best wireless bra, in my opinion, is True & Co’s V Neck Racerback

If you’re looking for support, lift, and love the sound of something buttery soft and seamless, you’re likely going to love one of True&Co’s True Body bras.
