Get the support you need without getting poked.

We don’t have to spend every day of our lives being slaves to metal wires digging into our most tender of flesh. I mean, why is that even a thing at all?

We get it, underwires are good for support and shape and pushing up our cleavage, which looks great in dresses. They are useful, but they can also be really uncomfortable, and for all the benefits, there’s pinching and chafing. There's also those unfortunate times when your bra rips, the wire gets exposed, and you stab yourself repeatedly all day.

What, that’s not normal? It’s happened. A lot. Believe it or not, there’s a better way to wear bras without underwire. There are wire-free bras out there that still offer great lift and support, and it turns out, they are darn cute as well. Luckily, you have 30 options to choose from, so you'll never get poked again.

Padded Wire-Free Bras

1. Cosabella Never Say Never Soft Padded Wireless Bra

A lot of us feel like we need that push-up to feel sexy, but this wide lace band is sultry without sacrificing support. Plus, the straps can be changed to crisscross at the back. The little bit of soft padding will go a long way toward making you feel comfortable and perky (where it matters!) all day long.

(ShopStyle, $79)

2. Yulee Lift Padded Wire-Free Contour Push-Up 

Lift, much like push-up, is not easy to find when looking to stay wire-free, but this wire-free contour push-up delivers in a big way via cups that are padded, molded, and contoured to give you an extra boost. Those thick straps are also helpful in relieving shoulder tension.
