Some days, we don’t feel like going the extra wire. We reach into our top drawer and grab the first wireless bra we see. Have you ever wondered if you’re giving something up by leaving behind underwire? Support? Shape? Style? Not necessarily. Let’s get intimate and debunk the top 5 myths about wireless bras.
Myth #1: Wireless bras are only for smaller sizes.
We often associate wireless bras with our pre-teen years or athletes. At Soma, we design bras without wires to fit and flatter cup sizes A to G. Some of our wireless bras include molded or seamless cups if you’re looking for shaping.
Myth #2: Wireless bras aren’t supportive.
It’s not the cups, underwire or straps that support your breasts – it’s the band. A wireless bra can offer the support you need as long as the band hugs your body and stays in place when you move.
Myth #3: Wireless bras result in an awkward uniboob.
Are you constantly reaching for a wireless bra that leaves you feeling less than flattered? While it’s easy to blame the lack of wire, it may be your size (75%* of women wear the wrong bra size so chances are…) Once you know your size, you can achieve the separation and shape you need to flatter your form – even while wearing a wireless bra.
Myth #4: Wireless bras aren’t pretty.
Lucky for us, we never have to sacrifice beauty over comfort. With strappy details, soft lace and plunging necklines, many are meant to peak through our tank tops, dresses or t-shirts. And you guessed it, they’re wireless! Bralettes make it easy for style and comfort to coexist.
Myth #5: Wireless bras are only for lounging.
Soma’s innovative bra collections are proof that wireless bras can go far beyond the sofa and your Netflix queue. But on those days when binge-watching is on the agenda—and you want some support while you control the remote—we’ve got you covered there, too. Enbliss™ is our softest bra ever, with bralette and wireless bra options, comfortable support you can sleep in and a new, beautiful lace back detail.
