3 Wire-Free Bras For Big-Busted Ladies

thirdLove edit

My boobs are not small, and ever since these fun bags sprouted, I’ve been wearing an underwire bra for support. That’s about 37 years of having a metal shank jammed up in my ribs! I’ve tried wireless bras in the past, but they never really worked for me, either lacking support or giving me uniboob like a sports bra. But fabric and bra technologies have changed, so I tested out a few new brands on the market to see how their wire-free bras stack up. All three are only available online, so be prepared to try on and return, as getting the exact fit can be tricky for most women. At the end of the day, I, surprisingly, liked them all. But I still prefer an underwire to truly showcase my assets.
