If you’ve noticed the bralette trend over the past few years, you may be wondering, should I switch to a wirefree bra for everyday? And, our enthusiastic answer is, yes!
Wirefree bras are no longer limited to sports bras and lacy bralettes meant to be shown off. We’re wearing our wirefree bras all day, every day and we’re thrilled that Boody has removed all bra hardware, creating a smooth look that feels supportive, soft, and 100% effortless. From yoga class to work to date night, these comfy, seamless bras have earned a permanent place in our wardrobe.
3 Reasons We Love Wirefree Bras
Wirefree bras are comfortable! Have you ever been poked in the ribs by an underwire gone rogue? Or counted down the minutes until you can walk through your front door and toss your bra aside? Those push-up bras may look sexy, but wearing metal across your chest...not so much. That’s why we love wirefree bras. They’re comfortable all day long. Without wires, clasps, or fasteners to rub, poke, and itch, bras aren’t so bad! Plus, it is possible to find comfort and support (yes, we’ve got both covered!).
You don’t have to handwash them. Underwire bras often have to be hand-washed and dried flat –– any twisting could throw the entire shape of the bra off-kilter. Wirefree bras aren’t quite so delicate. You can toss them in the washing machine, which also means you may wash them more often (who else is ready to admit they may not be washing their bras enough?!).
Wirefree bras can be cute and flattering. Taking the underwire out no longer means suffering from the dreaded uni-boob. Wirefree bras now have shaping technology and the option of padded support to give you the silhouette you want, without any of the squeezing and pinching you don’t.
Our Favourite Boody Wirefree Bras
If you’re going to start with just one wirefree bra, trust us, it should be the Shaper Bra. With a feminine shape, ribbed soft straps that are just wide enough, and our signature bamboo viscose that’s oh-so-soft, this will become your everyday bra in no time.
On occasion, you told us you may want a little something extra, and that’s why we created the Padded Shaper Bra. Just like the Shaper Bra, the Padded Shaper Bra is seamless, soft, and totally wirefree, but it has a bit of added support in the way of removable inserts –– it’s that bit of added shape you’re looking for.
And, we can’t forget the classic! There’s always room in our wardrobe for the Racerback Sports Bra: a must-have for any active lifestyle.
Lastly, of course, bras need their partners in crime: undies. Check out our article on the best Boody underwear for every outfit.
