If you’ve ever considered wearing a wireless bra but you don’t know where to start your search, we’ve got you covered. We’ve put together this complete buying guide to cover all your questions about wireless bras.
A Buyer’s Guide to Wireless Bras
What Are Wireless Bras?
A wireless bra is a bra that provides lift and support without an underwire. Also called a wire-free bra or soft cup bra, a wireless bra is one that features flexible fabrics that comfortably contour your bust, as opposed to an underwire bra that has a built-in plastic or metal underwire.
Is a Wireless Bra Better?
It comes down to personal preference on whether or not you think wireless bras are better. In terms of comfort, a wireless bra is a great option for comfortable everyday or leisure wear. When you wear a wireless bra, you don’t need to worry about pesky wire poke or that the underwire will bend or break to poke through the fabric.
Why Should I Wear Wireless Bras?
Simply put, wireless bras are comfortable! Women of all cup sizes should have comfortable bras in their collection, and wireless bras provide all the comfort and support you need. If you’ve been a loyal underwire-wearer for years, you may never have thought to try a wireless bra. For many women, going wireless is all about comfort. Dealing with uncomfortable wire poke is one of the main reasons women make the switch. Underwires can bend and break over time, and there’s nothing more annoying than an underwire poking you in the ribs or underarms.
How Do Wireless Bras Work?
A wireless bra is made of either stretch fabrics, soft fabrics, or rigid, non-stretch fabrics that support the bust without an underwire. The less stretch is in the fabric, the more support a wireless bra provides.
Are Wireless Bras More Comfortable?
Generally speaking, wireless bras can be more comfortable than underwire bras because they don't have rigid plastic or metal underwires. But comfort also comes down to personal preference. For women with larger cup sizes, a wireless bra is oftentimes more comfortable by default, because underwires can often poke or prod the chest or underarms. When you take the rigid wire out of the equation, comfort is a no brainer.
Are Wireless Bras Supportive?
Yes! Wireless bras are incredibly supportive. If you’ve never worn a wireless bra, you may question whether or not one will provide the support you need. Glamorise MagicLift bras are designed with our signature wire-free technology that features a reinforced inner-bust band that provides comfortable lift, shape, and full coverage support, no wire required. Our MagicLift bras feature a crisscrossed inner-bust band that acts as a supportive sling to lift the bust. Wireless bras are a great option for easy everyday wear, but can comfortably support on the go, too!
How to Take Care of Wireless Bras
Can You Put Wireless Bras In The Dryer?
Just because there isn’t a breakable underwire doesn't mean that you should toss your bra in the washing machine and dryer without a second thought. In order to preserve the fiber elasticity in the fabrics and cup shape, you should hand wash your bras with a laundry detergent made for delicate fabrics. You should never put your bras in the dryer and should always air dry them to preserve them for as long as possible. For more tips on how to properly care for your bras, see our bra care guide.
How Do You Fold Wireless Bras?
The best way to fold your wireless bras depends on whether or not they have molded cups. Molded cup bras are designed to keep their shape, so you should never fold them in half, which can cause them to invert and lose their shape. The best way to store molded wireless bras is by tucking them inside one another, one after another. You should not stack molded bras on top of each other, but rather line them up in an angle in your drawer.
For non-molded wireless bras, as in bras that don’t have any foam or cushion that holds its shape, it’s okay to fold them. The most efficient way to store these bras is by folding them in half and tucking the straps inside the cups. You can fold and stack non-molded bras without an issue.
