Sweatpants have replaced real pants, t-shirts have replaced button-down shirts, and slippers have replaced stilettos. And as for bras? Well, they’ve been ditched completely.
Still, there are times when we could all use a little support, and that’s where bralettes come in. The wireless styles offer some coverage and shape, but you don’t feel constricted while wearing them, which is why it makes sense companies are reporting that wireless bra sales are up 40 percent as more women work from home.
The thing is, there are thousands of bralettes to choose from, and we know you don’t have the time to shop around for one that lives up to its promise. So, we did it for you. Here, you will find the most comfortable bras and bralettes to wear at home, no matter your bust size. These top-rated picks may range in coverage and lift, but the one thing they all have in common is a long list of rave reviews.
Yummie Cotton Seamless Unlined Bralette ($+34; amazon.com)
Made from super-soft cotton, this bralette uses special knitting instead of wiring or padding to lift and shape. And thanks to its seamless construction, there’s no uncomfortable bulging or pinching. “This unlined bralette has a lot of support and still feels like I am not wearing a bra,” says one reviewer.
Available in size S/M, M/L, and L/XL.
True & Co True Body V-Neck Wireless Bra ($32+; amazon.com)
One of our favorite styles from the True Body collection, this bra provides impressive lift with a barely-there feel. Its tightly knit fabric and molded cups hold the girls in place while the wire-free channel lends the support of underwire without the wire. Another nice feature is the glue-dotted band around the bottom, which keeps the fabric from rolling.
Available in sizes XS-XL.

Warner’s Women’s Easy Does It No Bulge Wire-Free Bra ($20+; amazon.com)
This wire-free, full-coverage bra from Warner’s is a favorite for its smoothing abilities. The allover stretch fabric accommodates all shapes, enhancing your unique silhouette, plus it features extra side panels to prevent underarm bulge. “It does not have the typical ‘trim’ or seams that other bras have so it just lays nicely on my skin without pressing into it,” one reviewer describes.
Available in sizes XS-XXL.
Aerie Real Free Padded Bralette ($40+; aerie.com)
What we love most about this Aerie bra is its second skin feel, which makes it ideal for all-day wear.

Available in sizes XS-XL.
Hanro Cotton Sensation Wire-Free Bra ($86+; Amazon.com)

What’s more, it comes with 3-way convertible straps can be worn straight, criss-crossed at back, or as a halter.
Available in sizes 30A to 40F, as well as half sizes.
Skims Cotton Triangle Bralette ($32; nordstrom.com)
