Summer and its promise of less clothing coverage is fast approaching. This is certainly exciting for our sun-deprived extremities, but it’s not the best news for a particular undergarment that’s often worn well past its prime: our bras. Soon we will no longer be able to hide our timeworn unmentionables under layers of Heatech, turtlenecks, and sweaters — all while ignoring the plain fact that they’re just not giving us the coverage and support we need anymore. Ladies, it's time to buy a t-shirt bra.
It's the perfect summer underpinning that keeps everything in place while simultaneously ensuring that nothing looks out of place. The ideal version of this bra has minimal-to-no-hardware or frippery for thin fabric to catch on, shows no trace of itself underneath clothing, and, like the t-shirt, it’s comfy-casual. We know that there are about eighty million different types of boobs out there — our friends at ThirdLove offer a whopping 78 sizes for all these ta-tas, and show no signs of stopping — so we’ve done our homework to suss out the best of this style for many a breast type. (Nursing moms: we didn’t forget you.)
Ahead, t-shirt bras that have the internet saying hallelujah — and will take you and your boobs through the rest of summer covered, supported, and comfy (without a trace).
