Bras? Let’s be honest, we’d rather not wear them. We asked you guys over on Instagram Stories where the best bra you’d ever bought was from, and plenty of you replied to tell us that the best bra was no bra. And we hear you. That moment at the end of the day when the wires come off and the gals can finally breathe is pure heaven.
But what about if you do want to wear a bra? What if it makes you feel better supported and more comfortable? Well then, we have just the fashion round-up feature for you. Because right here is the definitive list of the absolute best bras out there as voted by women like you.
We hope you find something that feels magic and makes you feel bloody great.
Marks & Spencer DD+ Bralette
God bless the humble £9.50 Marks & Spencer bralette. A perfect wire-free solution for comfy, happy boobs even if you’re above a DD cup. I’m a huge fan and advocate of these – they come in three standard shades: white, black and beige, and often run in limited edition prints too. Whilst I’ll still opt for something more traditional and supportive if I’m wearing a tight t-shirt, these babies are my ultimate every day go-to (and I used them as feeding bras too!). They were easily the most popular style with you guys too.
There wasn’t just one style that came out on top from Bravissimo, you guys loved every. single. one. For those who have never shopped at Bravissimo before, it’s a UK lingerie shop which caters to sizes D to L cup. They’re big on measuring their customers IRL to ensure sizing for their products is spot on – and you’ll likely find your back is smaller and your cup size is bigger than with standard bras. One thing Bravissimo really nails is support. I can promise that you will never ever feel in danger of a nip slip with a Bravissimo bra – even if you’re hovering about in Downward Dog. Prices start from £32.
If you love shopping small then let us point you in the direction of 2016 UK lingerie start-up Molke. Born from a passion to create colourful, fun and comfy bras, the brand now creates every piece out of a factory in Scotland. The sizing is different to regular bras – there’s standard S, M, L etc for the back size and then a selection of cup sizes that start at ‘Stellar’ and go up to ‘Thunder’. Everything is super soft, there’s not a wire in sight, and prices start at just over £30. They’re also listed as being suitable for breastfeeding.
For all your strapless bra needs, you guys only had one style to shout about, and that was Wonderbra’s Ultimate Strapless Bra. It comes in a variety of shades to suit different skin colours, and goes up to a 38G. The reason it’s so loved? It’s designed to almost act as though hands are holding your boobs up, and unlike other similar styles it just doesn’t slip or slide down ever. I bought one a couple of years ago, and whilst it’s not exactly the comfiest thing in my underwear drawer, it’s freakishly good at what it does.
Freya was another brand which came up time and time again, but it was their Deco style which came out as a frontrunner with you lot. The simple t-shirt bra (which comes in strapless, plunge or soft-moulded) works with every outfit in your wardrobe. And whilst it’s not exactly the most boujee design out there, it’s a classic style that just fits beautifully. It costs £34, comes in two shades and is available in sizes B to GG.
Marks & Spencer Rosie Range
For underwear that looks as decadent and sexy as it feels, you couldn’t have rated Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s range with Marks & Spencer any more. It’s full of lace trims, glorious silk and cuts that just ooze sophistication. Special occasion undies, if you will. Most bras go up to an E cup, but select styles are available in sizes F-H. And, whilst there’s great staples in neutral shades, there’s always a few fun bright coloured styles every season too. Prices start from just over £20 a bra.
