T-shirt bras have become an absolute lingerie drawer essential. Comfortable, seamless, smooth and lightweight, they are the perfect everyday bra, and ideal for form-fitting outfits that require an invisible look from your underwear. And, since they come in all different styles from plunge bras to half-cups and full coverage, there’s a T-shirt bra to suit most outfits. The only thing they aren’t good for, in our opinion, is as a romantic gift from your other half.
Here are some of the Fashion Bust team’s favourites…
Chantelle Rive Gauche Half Cup Bra
Beautifully pretty and feminine, the Rive Gauche Half Cup T-shirt bra from Chantelle is one of the brand’s best-selling styles, available in new fashion colours each season. With lace-trimmed, lightly padded cups, a cute centre bow and contrast stitching on the straps, this bra proves that T-shirt bras don’t have to be plain or boring.
Sizes: 30C to 38F, Colours: black, milk, cappuccino, emerald, grey, lemon and roseberry. Buy it for £46 from Figleaves.com.
Wacoal Embrace Lace T-Shirt Bra
Wacoal has some wonderful core bra styles, and its Embrace Lace range is the brand’s top selling line, with the Embrace Lace T-shirt bra a particular favourite. The open neckline and pretty scalloped lace give this bra an elegant look while the soft, stretch foam cups mould to the shape of your breasts for a smooth, rounded silhouette.
Sizes: Colours: black and nude. Buy it for £43 from Bella di Notte.
Lepel Athena T-Shirt Bra
Lepel’s Athena T-shirt bra is a great value option for A-DD busts. Practical yet pretty, the moulded cups are trimmed with scalloped lace, as are the delicate straps which give this bra a light touch. It’s also super soft and comfy to wear.
