It’s safe to say we all fall victim to the inevitable accumulation of countless bras and bralettes throughout the years, unintentionally collecting them in what comes to be known as our dedicated “bra drawer.” Whether it’s strapless bras, seamless bras, sports bras—you name it, it’s probably squirreled away in there somewhere. Maybe your so-called bra drawer is in need of a serious revitalization (it’s me, hi), or maybe despite a fully stocked inventory you still find yourself coming up short of a faithful, everyday style.
Enter, the T-shirt bra. Meant to give a smooth, shapely appearance under fitted clothes (like their namesake, the classic T-shirt), T-shirt bras are simple in design and congruent with the ideal combination of comfort and support. CUUP’s director of fit, Tania Garcia, gave us the 411 on what makes for a go-to T-shirt bra and how to choose one. “T-shirt bras are kept minimal (no lace, no embroidery) for a barely-there look that disappears under clothing,” she offers. And while Garcia agrees that choosing your bra comes down to personal preference, she also explains that smooth and flesh-toned styles will be the most versatile option.
