The next best thing to going braless
Don’t have a bralette? You’re missing out. These comfy wireless numbers deserve a prime place in your lingerie drawer with your other favorite bras, including a stellar sports bra and ThirdLove’s insanely popular T-shirt bra. If you’re not familiar with this style, here’s what you need to know: Bralettes are typically characterized by casual, less restricting designs without underwires, and the focus tends to be more on fashion and less on function. Their main purpose isn’t necessarily to lift and shape, but rather to emphasize comfort and wearability. That said, some of the best bralettes provide more support than you might think.
While you can certainly pair these bosom buddies with your coziest loungewear and pajama sets, there’s a lot more you can do with them. “Bralettes are perfect for lounging at home as a way to elevate your athleisure,” says fashion stylist Samantha Brown. “Since they’re less structured than a standard bra, they don’t have the same push-up effect, keeping them a bit more low-key.” Outside the house, Brown says they’re wonderful to style under off-the-shoulder or open-back tops, slouchy sweaters and tees, silky camisoles, plunging necklines, and even half-buttoned cardigans. “Opt for bralettes with pretty, feminine details like lace and crochet if you’re looking for one that can be incorporated into an outfit,” she suggests. “A hint of embroidery on a bralette is subtly sexy without being too over the top.”
In the past, these undergarments were typically suited only for those with smaller busts, but now the options on the market are more size-inclusive, like the incredibly popular Cosabella Never Say Never Sweetie bralette. (More on that one in a minute!) In general, if you have a larger bust, look for styles with molded cups and extra lining. “Don’t sacrifice great shape when picking a bralette in place of support,” advises celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger. Adjustable straps and a fitted elastic band are also important design details that will help provide ample support.
No matter what size you wear, we’ve got the perfect bralette for you. Find your fave and you’ll learn why women say wearing one is the next best thing to going braless.
Cosabella Never Say Never Sweetie Bralette
This family-owned brand has been perfecting its design of the ultimate soft wireless bra for more than 35 years. The result is one of the most size-inclusive designs on the market: More than 60 cupped bra sizes are covered in seven styles. It’s also super popular. More than a million have been purchased to date, and one bralette is sold every three minutes worldwide. (Yes, you read that right!)
The sweetheart neckline and all-over soft lace offer the optimal amount of support with a hint of sex appeal. It’s stretchy and durable (forget fraying or tears) and has adjustable straps. A center gore seam adds extra definition and prevents the dreaded uni-boob look, and a non-binding scalloped band extends below the bust. Plus, it slips on overhead, so there’s no pesky hook-and-eye closures or fussy fasteners.
- Handcrafted by Italian artisans
- More than 80 colors and prints
- Inclusive sizing
On Gossamer Next to Nothing Bralette
As one reviewer fantastically sums it up, this is the “perfect bra for those who hate bras.” Made from On Gossamer’s signature, light-as-air mesh that’s smooth and stretchy, it’s the best bralette to provide all-day comfort, and it’s been a top seller for the brand since it was introduced in 2017. The double-lined construction is so lightweight and breathable, you’ll feel like you’re wearing—as the name suggests—next to nothing. Available in sizes S to XL, the soft and weightless style is most suitable for smaller frames. Buy a two-pack, which comes with black and nude, and you’ll save $4 off the retail price. (They’re normally $34 each.) Finding the perfect bra, by the way, is one of the style secrets of women who always look put together.
- A cinch at the center helps to add shape
- Two-row hook-and-eye back closure
- Adjustable straps
Wacoal Net Effect Soft Cup Bralette
Great for fuller figures (it fits up to a DD cup, and 32 to 42 band sizes), this wire-free design features a unique Swiss dot mesh, beautiful botanical jacquard fabric, and engineered flat edges along the neckline and bottom that create an immaculate, finished look. Wide straps and a plunging V-neck are flattering, while a wide bottom band adds to a secure fit. Seamed cups lined on the side with stretch mesh also provide gentle shaping. Plus, the fabric has a high spandex count, so it really hugs your curves, giving you exceptional support.
- Moderate coverage
- Full-busted fit
- Easy to get on/off hook-and-eye closure
La Perla Lace Wireless Bralette
“For bolder styles when I am looking for a lacy option, I always turn to La Perla,” says Erlanger. “It’s guaranteed to make me feel my best.” Definitely a splurge, this ultra-luxurious creation is equally suited for special occasions or to wear every day. The non-wired soft bralette highlights your contours, and unpadded cups (in sizes B to D) provide a natural hold and shaping. Cut from stretch tulle, intricate lace detailing and embroidery along the straps and cups conjure up an irresistibly romantic mood, whether you want to set the mood with that special someone or just want to feel amazing on a regular day.

Venus, whose motto is “style for all sizes,” offers up this universally flattering bra that feels high-end but won’t put a dent in your wallet. (It’s just $26!) The all-over sheer lace with a scallop-trim on the neckline and hem is pretty and delicate, though still very wearable, and adjustable straps and a light mesh lining on the wireless cups helps with support. One review raves that it “holds up in the wash,” while another happy customer says she loves the fit and the fact that the lace isn’t itchy. “This bralette fits true to size, and the lace is very soft,” she adds. Plus, it’s available in 11 different colors, from XS to XXL, so you’re sure to find just what you need.

Skims Cotton Plunge Bralette
“If you’re not intending for it to be seen, Skims makes a great functional bralette that is seamless and unfussy,” says Brown. This ribbed number (in sizes XXS to 4X) combines the cool everyday comfort and natural breathability of cotton with high-tech, power-mesh support. The wear-it-and-forget-it triangle shape with a plunging V-neck makes it a flattering and versatile cut for a variety of different necklines, and adjustable shoulder straps and a hook-and-eye back closure help create a custom fit.

Warner’s Easy Does It No Bulge Wire-Free Bra
The top-selling average-figure bra, according to the retail tracking service NPD Group, this wireless bralette is not only one of the most loved—it’s also one of the most affordable. A smooth stretch fabric molds to your silhouette and accommodates your unique shape, and brilliantly constructed extra coverage side panels discreetly conceal underarm bulge.
Need more convincing? More than 17,000 five-star reviewers on Amazon sing its praises. One satisfied shopper, who calls it “heaven in a brassiere,” articulates the reasons for her obsession: “It has great support with all-day comfort, and a nice uplift. After work, this is the only bra that I’ve forgotten I still had on. Usually after a long day’s work, I’d be screaming to pop that bra off, but not this one!” Another reviewer raves, “It’s comfortable enough to sleep in and supportive enough (for me) to work out in.” We predict it’ll be one of the Amazon products you’ll end up using almost every day.

Spanx Bra-llelujah! Lightly Lined Tank Bralette
We think this one deserves an award for the best-named bralette, and it’s also our top pick for a smoothing bralette. Its fan-favorite design has lightly lined cups with stretchable, flexible pads, and the patented all-hosiery slimming back (the only one of its kind!) eliminates lumps and bumps like no other. It also has zones of reinforcement seamlessly knit into it, which means it stretches and moves with you, and self-adjusting straps won’t dig into shoulders. Plus, there’s no elastic, wires, or hardware anywhere, so it gives you an impeccably flawless look under clothes. It’s also a great option to wear with a T-shirt! Speaking of which, this is the best color bra to wear under a white T-shirt. (And no, it’s not nude!)
- Eliminates back and side bulges
- No elastic or hardware
- Added fabric layer in cup sizes L and XL for extra support
Maidenform Pure Comfort V-Neck Wire-Free Bra
“For classic everyday staples, Maidenform has great options to pick from,” says Erlanger. This modern V-neck is the best bralette for layering. For the nice price of only $18.99, the sleek and lightweight fabric is barely noticeable, and a proprietary SmoothTec stay-put band won’t roll or ride up. Invisible fused edges feel like a second skin, providing the ideal base under any outfit, but targeted support areas still lift and shape where you need it. The best part? A lace racerback is so pretty, it should be seen, so it’s a great choice to wear under sheer garments, open-back tops, or delicate dresses.
- Removable foam cups
- Racerback style
- Pullover design for easy on/off
Athleta Cinch Longline Bra
This is the best bralette for low-impact exercises like yoga or Pilates. Its signature Powervita fabric is scrumptiously soft, with support that “feels like a gentle hug” to keep you contained during movement. More to love: It’ll dry in a flash when you break a sweat, and the moisture-wicking design pulls perspiration away from the body to the surface of the fabric so it can evaporate quickly. Adjustable straps can be worn straight or as an x-back, and with a cinched-front, low-cut neckline, and cut-out detail, it’s an elevated version of your typical sports bra. Next, check out the best leggings to complete your workout outfit.
- Supportive enough for light exercise
- Removable pads
- Breathable and moisture-wicking
Skin Bia Bralette
High fashion in a bralette? Yes, please! This ultra-polished number from luxury basics brand Skim gives off cool-girl ’90s vibes, and its slim single strap will go unnoticed under one-shoulder tops and frocks. There’s no boning, padding, or hardware, so it’s extremely lightweight and comfortable. And that’s not all: It’s made from an ethically sourced stretch organic pima cotton jersey material, and the fabric is GOTS-certified, so you don’t have to worry about an excess of toxic bleaches, dyes, or other chemicals in the fabric. But our favorite part of this bralette is that the double-layered cut reverses from dark gray to sky blue, giving you two looks for the price of one.
- Unique one-shoulder style
- Machine washable
Hanky Panky Signature Lace Padded Triangle Bralette
Hanky Panky may be known for its colorful and rainbow-hued thongs, but the brand also make our favorite lace look. A best seller for the brand, this specific silhouette has tripled in sales over the past three years. We love it because it’s alluring without being too risqué: The signature all-over lace is lined in stretch tulle, so it’s not too revealing. Just note that the padded wireless cups offer light support and modest coverage best suited for smaller builds. Available in more than 15 colors and fun prints, this bralette also makes a great layering piece to peek out of a T-shirt or elevate any basic ensemble.
- Removable pads
- Adjustable thin straps
- No back closure, slips over the head

And here’s an unexpected detail that makes us love it even more: It’s entirely made from recycled yarn, making it a superb option for anyone looking for an eco-friendly bralette. If that made you perk up, you’ll definitely want to check out this list of sustainable clothing brands.

Skims Fits Everybody Scoop Neck Bra

Available in XXS to 4X and nine neutral hues (plus eight seasonal colors), it’s designed—as the name implies—to fit every body. A super soft nylon and spandex fabric molds to your bod and stretches to twice its size. The streamlined look disappears under clothing and won’t dig into your skin, and the scoop-neck bra has a supportive shelf, an encased elastic under-bust seam, and adjustable shoulder straps.

Commando Double Take Bandeau Bra
Finding a comfortable strapless bra that you aren’t constantly yanking up isn’t easy. One solution?

Fit-tested by real women, it boasts a luxe Italian stretch fabric on the front and custom-engineered lace on the back. Raw-cut edges without elastic, trim, or taping eliminate digs and bulges and make it the perfect invisible underpinning.

Le Mystere Sheer Illusion Wireless Bra
Best for large busts, this sophisticated style comes in band sizes 30 to 38 and cups B to G. A sheer mesh overlay reveals a sliver of skin to create a sexy window effect, but it also provides extra coverage and added lift. Plush demi cups are set into a foam frame that hugs the body, thanks to the two-way stretch that conforms to the shape of the breast. More thoughtful design elements: A soft microfiber binding along mesh edges replaces traditional elastics, and pretty rose-gold hardware completes the look.
- Sexy and supportive mesh overlay
- Lightly padded cups
- Adjustable straps
Free People Intimately Eyes on You Bralette
“Free People bralettes are affordable and have lots of pretty details,” says Brown. From the brand’s in-house intimates collection comes this unique short-sleeved lace model in a bold, eye-catching red.

- Ultra feminine, made-to-be-seen style
- Open back
Khaite Eda Cashmere Bralette

- Stylized silhouette
