Locked in a constant struggle to find a bra that fits properly? Can’t wait to take it off when you walk through the door? Then it may be time to join the ranks of women ditching their underwired bra in favour of a bralette…
More women than ever claim they no longer wear a bra, and who can blame them? If you’re blessed with a bigger bust, you might not feel comfortable ditching the bra entirely, but why not split the difference by going underwire-free?
Non-wired bras are having a real moment. Banish those images of dowdy, old-fashioned designs that don’t offer you the support you need. With designers like Stella McCartney leading the way, the high street is bursting with pretty, practical bralettes which offer the same lift as wired styles. And the best bit? Our favourite plus size bralettes go all the way up to a K cup. Read on to find the one for you…
