Finding the perfect bra is not as easy as it sounds. And if you’re like us, no bra is probably your preference, but sometimes that just isn’t an option (especially if you need extra support). We love t-shirt bras because they are light and breathable and basically feel like you aren’t wearing anything.

If you are in the market for a new bra and it’s been a while since you’ve upgraded, it’s important to remember to get your exact measurements to ensure the fit is tailored to your body’s specifications. If you’re only planning to buy one, consider a neutral shade so it doesn’t show through light colored t-shirts. Lastly, when you’re picking a bra, keep in mind your intent to wear this on a regular (and comfortable) basis, AKA, save the lace and extra padding for your special occasion lingerie drawer. Now that we’ve brushed up on the ground rules for buying a bra you’ll actually love, check out the 12 best t-shirt bras you can find, according to the ladies who love them.
