Wacoal Lace Contour Bra

Wacoal Embrace Lace Contour Bra

The Wacoal Embrace is our number one pick for the best T shirt bra. It is a great bra that has had rave reviews from almost every women that has worn it. Great quality and seamless cups makes this T shirt bra a great choice for women that want a smooth and natural shape under any type of material. The only downside to this bra is that is only available in a limited amount of sizes from C to D Cup and in a 30 to 40 band size. We would love to see this bra in an A and B cup.

Warner’s “This is Not a Bra” Underwire Bra

A wonderful bra for women that need a lift but want to remain comfortable. The shoulder straps are a bit wider than average so they will not dig in like most cheaper bras do. Quality is excellent, comfort is exceptional and has a three hook closure.  The contorted/molded cups are seamless and will give you the look that you want under thin tops and sweaters.

Barely There T Shirt Bra

Barely There Invisible Look Underwire Bra

This bra does NOT feel like you are wearing an underwire. It is a 10 out of 10 on the comfort scale, tagless, has convertible straps, is seamless and looks great under any top. Materials and construction are of the best quality and holds up very well to frequent washing and wearing. This bra is not like previous Barely There bras, the quality and comfort is much better.  We have no complaints about this bra except that it comes in very limited sizes.

When to where a T shirt bra

T shirt bras can be worn under nearly any type of top as long as the shoulder straps are not going to show. Clingy, thin or light knit materials are perfect candidates to wear over a T shirt bra because the bra is made to be seamless as possible and to fit in a manner that will not create any bulges under your clothing. Most T shirt bras have a padded underwire also that helps fully support the breasts  and to also help create cleavage. Almost all T shirt bras will have some light padding in the cups to keep your nipples concealed.


What to look for in a quality T shirt Bra

  • Molded cups are made without seams that are contoured to the natural shape of your breasts.
  • Straps that are a bit wider than on most most standard bras
  • Lightly padded cups
  • Bands that have 3 hooks rather than one or two
  • The cups should be very firm but not ridged


T shirt bra care

Some T shirt bras can be machine washed and other will have to be hand washed, of course it is always better to hand wash if you have the time. Do not hang your bra or it will stretch out the elasticity over a long period of time. It is best to store your T shirt bras in a drawer with each cup inside the cup of the bra behind it, this will allow the bra to keep its shape for longer. Another great tip, maybe the most important is not to wear the same bra everyday. Regular wear of the same bra will cause the elasticity to fail prematurely and stretch out. It is best to have at least 3 if not 5 bras so you can rotate them daily.
