The best t-shirt bras should be among the most comfortable garments in your underwear drawer. Most of us have a love-hate relationship with bras (particularly strapless or backless bras that we begrudgingly wear under our strappy summer dresses). Therefore, the beloved t-shirt bra — arguably, the most comfortable bra for women — exists for a reason. They help hold up our gals and give us nip coverage when we’re doing our weekly grocery run, but they won’t restrict you as you lounge around the house. And now that many of us are spending more time at home (between homeschooling the kids and telecommuting), a bra that gives you 24/7 comfort is pretty much non-negotiable. Thankfully, we’re no longer restrained to rigid, bad-fitting bras that only come in limited sizing. Now we have tons of options—and one of the best ones out there if you’re looking for comfort and flattery, is the ever-loving t-shirt bra.

What is a t-shirt bra?

Great question. Essentially it’s a bra that is meant to be worn for comfort and can’t be seen under a t-shirt (hence the name). “It’s usually a seamless, molded cup bra designed to appear essentially invisible under form-fitting clothes,” explains Megan Chipko, Director of Product Strategy and Innovation at PVH Corp (the company that owns brands such as Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Warner’s, and True&Co). But like most clothing items, not all t-shirt bras are created equal. Some are wire-free and some have an underwire—some are lightly padded and others are truly seamless, with zero molding.

Similar to every bra, finding the kind of t-shirt bras that are best for you requires knowing what to look for. “The bra should lie flat between both breasts, your girls should be lifted and not sagging, straps shouldn’t be sliding or digging in, and there should be no bulges around sides, underarms or back,” explains Jené Luciani, lifestyle expert and author of The Bra Book. “If you have very round, full breasts, look for full coverage bras and if you’re a bit smaller, but just need lift, a demi bra will do.”

What is the best t-shirt bra?

Glad you asked! It depends on your preference. Do you want a supportive underwire bra with soft cups? A wireless option that fits like a second skin? Something totally plain, or a few feminine details? In any case, we’ve got you (and your girls) covered. Below are some of the top-rated t-shirt bras that can give you a completely smooth seamless look (even for DD+ cups) and still feel really comfortable to wear (we mean it).
