Best Bras Of 2023
You always want to make sure to have a couple different of bras on hand for every occasion. Depending on your breast shape, size, and underwire preferences, you’ll lean towards different silhouettes that suit your unique needs. There is a wide variety of silhouettes that can make it hard to know where to start. So, let’s take a look at the top women’s bras of this year and see which we recommend you add to your top drawer and why.
T-Shirt bras are designed for those looking for a smooth, seamless base underneath their clothing. They are nearly invisible, offer ample support, and create a beautiful and smooth silhouette no matter what you wear, whether it be an actual t-shirt or a curve-loving dress. ThirdLove’s 24/7® Classic T-Shirt Bra boasts ultra-thin memory foam cups that accentuate your curves perfectly. It also comes in shades to match your skin tone or outfit and innovative half cups for your perfect fit.
Wireless bras are perfect for those days you are looking for soft support. As the name suggests, this type of bra has no wire and usually offers supportive, soft padding, making it the perfect choice for casual days. Some balk at the idea of wearing a wireless bra, thinking it won’t provide the support they are looking for. To them, we suggest that they try our Form 360 Fit™ Wireless Bra. It’s perfect for wireless skeptics and those with small band, large cups (& vice versa) bodies as its innovative Precise Sizing provides 3x more sizes than your typical wireless bra, providing all the support you need.

When looking for the best bras of 2023, unlined bras are rising stars. They are barely noticeable under clothing and highlight your natural shape. Some unlined bras provide minimal coverage and support, but that’s not the case with our 24/7® Second Skin Unlined Bra. It’s seamless, smooth, and foam-free while offering ample support for even those with larger breasts.
Minimizer bras are perfect for those with fuller breasts, and may not want to highlight size. Not only does minimizer bras reduce and shape your breast beautifully, but they also offer amazing support without sacrificing comfort.
