Bras…It’s Complicated: Wireless Bra Myths

Wireless bras tend to be the topic of much debate, leaving many women standing on opposing sides, of what is often, misinformation. Years of myths passed down from generation to generation leave us confused. For this reason, we’ve decided to get intimate about our intimates and debunk some of the most common myths we’ve heard around wireless bras.


Wireless bras aren’t offered for larger sizes

When women hear the word wireless, many assume these bras are designed for teenagers purchasing their first bra or women with smaller cups. While wireless bras are fantastic options for both, they can also be worn by women with larger cup sizes. In fact, Soma designers specifically engineer wireless styles from A up to G cup, such as our new Embraceable Full Coverage Wireless Unlined.


Wireless bras are not supportive

While we agree that there are definitely wireless bras out there that may not provide desired support, many are designed with a band beneath the cups for the added support and comfort. Just like other styles, wireless bras can vary in support. For example, our new Enhancing Shape Wireless features full coverage contour cups providing great support without the wire while our Embraceable Wireless Unlined Bra offers much lighter support for relaxed wear.

Wireless bras are not flattering

Unflattering results can often be attributed to lack of support, quality or incorrect size. That’s right – 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. By getting an expert bra fitting, you can ensure you are finding a style that provides the level of support you are looking for in the right size. Contour foam cups provide concealment and added shaping, while unlined styles preserve your natural shape.
