In today’s time, as social media started to boom, we can observe many women being comfortable in themselves, looking confident and bold, and wearing no bra online. It somehow helps other women to try it themselves.
What To Look For In The Best Braless Shirts
One of the most tried-and-true options here is a top with a built-in bra. While this is a pretty common feature in camisoles and spaghetti-strap tanks, there are also brands that put padding or other support into their T-shirts and blouses. You can find a few of those below.
You can also choose a top that skips the built-in bra but is structured in other ways: Seams, thicker fabric, and compression-stretch material can all help you feel more supported in the chest area. Finally, you can camouflage; these tops don’t provide much in the way of structure, but their darker colors, looser fit, busy patterns, and layered ruffles might make you feel more confident when going braless.
All of these shirts fit into at least one of the above three categories so you can skip the bra with confidence and support, and they’ve got the reviews to back them up.
1. This Best-Selling Padded Tank
A bra, a workout top, a tank when tucked into high-waisted bottoms — this best-selling Lemedy top is super versatile because of its built-in support pads. It also has a thick, double-layer compression material that wicks away sweat and stays put during movement. You can get it in just about any solid color you could want, so it’s no wonder it has over 45,000 reviews on Amazon.
- Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
One reviewer wrote: “I bought this bra (instead of a cami) to wear underneath a cardigan that was just a little too low cut. It’s perfect because I usually have to wear a bra with a cami, but this bra offers a lot of support AND it’s soft! Bought it and ended up wearing it all day, then wore it bed as well.”
2. This T-Shirt With A Built-In Bra
Made from soft, stretchy modal fabric, this T-shirt is super comfortable, but it’s also really functional thanks to its shelf bra with built-in pads. That way, you can just throw it on and head out the door — or wear it around the house while working out, cleaning, or lounging. It comes in your choice of eight colors, all with capped sleeves and a scoop neck.
- Available sizes: X-Small — XX-Large
One reviewer wrote: “Only built-in bra top I’ve found with sleeves. I love this top. Wanted something to wear on a long plane ride under a little sundress and it was PERFECT. Comfortable and good looking.”
3. This Flowy Tunic With Built-In Support
It’s as comfortable as your favorite pajama top since it’s made from viscose and spandex, but this swingy tank still elevates your outfit with its lace trim and scoop neck. The best part? Its built-in bra offers invisible support in all four color options. According to many reviewers, the permanent padding is even thick enough for larger chests.
- Available sizes: Small — 3X-Large
One reviewer wrote: “This tank top is so comfortable! The built in bra was exactly what I was looking for—not too flimsy, not too bulky. The fabric isn’t sheer, and it’s got a swishy feel to it. I loved it so much, I bought it in two different colors!”
4. A 2-In-1 Strappy Tank
- Also available on Walmart, $25
This icyzone workout tank has a built-in sports bra you can see, but unlike most other exposed bras, this one is stylish and eye-catching: The back opens to reveal a strappy, criss-cross design that complements the flowy tank, and you can get it in eight different colors. It also has flat-lock stitching to reduce chafing and keeps you cool with its moisture-wicking material.
- Available sizes: Small — X-Large
One reviewer wrote: “I bought this shirt to work in. It is so comfortable, and I like that it’s long so you don’t accidentally show too much when you bend over. […] The material is very soft and the built-in bra is very supportive.”
5. This Halter Bodysuit That’s Surprisingly Supportive
- Also available on Walmart, $19
While it doesn’t have any built-in padding, reviewers wrote that this bodysuit is “thick and non-see-through,” not to mention “tight enough that no bra is needed.” It comes in a huge range of colors, including darker shades that are significantly more opaque, and the halter neckline can be dressed up or down. Since it’s a bodysuit, it always stays tucked in, but the crotch has snaps to make going to the bathroom much easier.
- Available sizes: Small — XX-Large
One reviewer wrote: “I got the white but was initially worried about it being see-through. The material is smooth as butter and it wears smooth as butter too! NOT see-through, just enough liner that I personally don’t need to wear a bra.”
