9 Comfortable Bras (By Canadian Designers) You’ll Actually Want to Wear at Home
Even if you love being bra-free, you'll love these pieces.
Date April 24, 2020
If you’re someone who rips off their bra the second you get home, we can totally relate. Comfortable bras may seem like an oxymoron but while being bra-free feels like a relief, it’s not for everyone. Trading a wired bra for subtle support can be the perfect middle ground especially when spending more time at home. Look for fit (it shouldn’t leave marks on your skin) and soft breathable fabric to set the right foundation for your WFH wardrobe. Try a wireless t-shirt bra or a delicate bralette that makes you feel fancy regardless of what you wear over it.
Whether you’re team sweats or jeans for your WFH wardrobe, here are our favourite comfortable bras made by Canadian brands:
Made from 100% organic cotton in downtown Halifax, this fresh printed bra will feel freeing with just enough support to keep things in place.
A soft mesh bralette could be the pop of colour you need to brighten your mood. The light and breathable fabric feels barely there.
Sports bras get a bad rap for flattening or creating a uniboob. This smooth and supportive style will keep your shape thanks to its soft malleable cups. It also offers adjustable straps so you have the option of wearing it racerback.
A full coverage bra that will feel like your favourite worn in t-shirt. A scoop neck is perfect for those that don’t like a plunge and come summer this bra could double as a sporty crop top.
A breath of fresh air in the form of a bra. This romantic print helps to remind us that spring blooms are on their way. The moisture-wicking and quick drying Italian jersey makes it much more than a decorative bralette, too.
You may not be wearing makeup but sometimes you need a little something special to make you feel fresh. This silver bralette with seamless edges is the perfect pick-me-up for you and them.
WingWoman Contour Bra
Underwire free but not without support. Soft breathable cups with extra side coverage to combat side boob will have you contained but not constrained. Wear this style under sweats or a blouse.
Custom made helps maximize comfort. Hamilton’s Rosalie Wynne, will create a bralette based on your band and cup size. There’s no better way to find a fit that works than having it made-to-order.
WonderBra No Poke Side-stay Wire-Free Bra
($51 , WonderBra)
A classic made without any wire that could pinch or prod. Your favourite t-shirt bra can be worn beyond 9-5.
