What is a Wireless Bra? | Making the Switch to a Wireless Bra

  • Lingerie Lowdown

Are you forever irritated by your bra digging into you? Desperate to take it off the moment you get home? Here’s everything you need to know about switching to a wireless bra. 

What’s the Difference Between a Wired and Wireless Bra?

The answer is simple. Bras with underwire have a wire running under the cup and wireless bras (as the name suggests) don’t. Underwire tends to offer support, definition and uplift. They can also reduce back pain due to the extra support provided by the wire. So what do you get from a wireless bra?

Which is Better: a Wired or Wireless Bra?

Wireless bras, non-wire bras, or soft cups (whatever you want to call them) are:

  • Typically worn for lounging or sports
  • Slightly less supportive than underwired bras
  • Much more comfortable than underwired bras. So much easier to keep on for the course of a day!

Underwired bras:

  • Are great for supporting larger busts
  • Can get uncomfortable quite quickly
  • Can deteriorate faster - if the wire starts poking out, it's time to invest in a new bra!

Most people, however, choose this level of discomfort and stick with the underwire. Not only do they support larger busts, but they’re usually associated with more options. Plunge, strapless, lace, you name it. Wireless bras are typically seen as being more limited in choice, but this really isn’t the case…

Are Wireless Bras Better?

Not only are wireless bras longer lasting, they are indisputably more comfortable. They’re not limited to a size, material or style, either. It’s completely down to personal preference and what you want from your bra!
