Let’s have a bit of bra talk today, shall we? I don’t know about my girlfriends out there, but I absolutely hate wearing bras when I don’t have to. This is why I typically prefer sporting loose tops and sweaters especially if I have a long day ahead. Personally, I don’t find wired bras comfortable at all. Instead, they are restrictive and don’t give much breathing room. Bralettes are much friendlier to my girls; I love that they are light and airy. But, they come with a down side — they usually don’t provide much shape or cleavage if I want to wear a tighter top. With that said, I’ve been on a hunt for the perfect everyday bra that doesn’t require me to sacrifice shape or comfort. After a long search, I finally discovered UNIQLO’s new wireless bras and have been in LOVE since!
A regular bra sans the uncomfortable wires — it is quite a genius idea if you ask me! The best part is, this one goes for an unbeatable price of only $19.90 on UNIQLO.com. I am tempted to buy more in all the colors and styles now that I know my girls are happy in this one. UNIQLO’s Beauty Light style bra is my favorite so far. It is very comfortable and versatile, and comes in a variety of colors. This baby blue shade is just perfect for spring and summer! If you are looking for a wireless bra that provides ample support, beautiful shape, and just the right amount of cleavage without breaking the bank, this is the one. The three band hooks in the back allow me to adjust accordingly so it doesn’t feel too tight or loose. For size reference, I am wearing a size small and am a true 32B. I seriously can’t believe that I can wear this all day under t-shirts, dresses, and tank tops without feeling any discomfort.
Depending on what kind of bra you are looking for, you may also be interested in UNIQLO’s Beauty Soft, Beauty Relax, and Convertible styles. In addition to Beauty Light, I also got Beauty Relax in a dusty rose pink color. The wear feels pretty similar to that of a light sports bra. However, this style seems to run a bit bigger so instead of a size small, I think I’ll go with an extra small next time for a more snug fit. With this one, you obviously won’t get the same cleavage but it does have a bit of padding in there to give support and shape. This bra is ideal for lounging at home or having an off-the-shoulder top layered over it. Similar to the Beauty Light, it is very comfortable; I often forget I have anything on when I wear it! Both styles are lightweight, odorless, and dry quickly. These benefits are musts for a girl who lives in the desert and sweats easily in the chest area.
UNIQLO’s wireless bras are year-round wardrobe staples that can be worn under a variety of tops and dresses. They even look super cute as loungewear at home! I never thought I’d meet an everyday bra I would love, but life is full of surprises 😉
