Bralettes and wire-free bras are options for those who prefer not to wear underwires. Bralettes are lightly structured and their purpose is not to support the bust as well as a regular bras. Wire-free bras however provide a little more support than a bralette, but the lack of underwires may affect the support and shape of the bra in some way. When buying a wire-free bra, please make sure that you buy the correct cup size – too small cups will press the breasts against each other, which is not ideal. Wire-free bras and bralettes are a great option for those wanting a bit support while lounging around home or doing light everyday tasks. They are also an essential for people who have recently gone through breast surgery.
