The 5 Best T-Shirt Bras Available Now

In the world of bras, t-shirt bras are refreshingly straight-forward. They are simply bras that are good for wearing under t-shirts and other garments that easily show texture. They have smooth, seamless cups so texture doesn’t show through what you’re wearing, even if the garment is snug or a light color.

T-shirt bras are usually made with thicker cups. These thicker cups have either contoured, molded cups, or more flexible 3D spacer cups. Contoured cups are thicker and more rigid, which give more nipple coverage and a round appearance. However, because these cups are thicker and more formed, they can also be tougher to mold to a body, they can lose their shape more easily and possibly form permanent dents if folded or crushed. These thicker styles also can only support up to an H or I cup as larger cup sizes need more structure and stronger fabric than a one-layered, solid foam cup.

Bras made with 3D spacer cups are just as smooth as contoured styles, but are lighter-weight and more breathable. 3D spacer foam is made up of three layers woven together to create a stronger and more flexible hold. Known as a “second skin” because of its ability to mold to the person wearing it and its light feel, this fabric can be used in bras that cater to all sizes. La Lingerie carries many 3D spacer t-shirt bra styles because they tend to give a more natural and comfortable fit.

Below are 5 of La Lingerie’s best t-shirt bra options!

Simone Perele Promesse 3D Plunge

This 3D spacer style molds to your body with ease, and is extremely comfortable and breathable. With a touch of lace along the cups and band, the Promesse 3D Plunge is beautiful as well as practical. This bra has a lower gusset in the center of the cups and a j-hook on the straps for more wearability under low-cut or sleeveless tops. Stocked in 30-40 bands, C-F cups.

Fantasie Rebecca Lace

We love this bra because it is a great 3D spacer bra that goes up to a UK H/US K cup! The lace on the band is lovely both for a pretty accent and its ability to smooth the back. An amazing fit in all sizes, the Rebecca is popular for a reason! Stocked in 30-40 bands, US D-K / UK D-H cups.

Natori Pure Luxe

The Pure Luxe is made with super smooth microfiber, which is divinely soft against your skin. A great contoured cup with more coverage. La Lingerie clients adore the softness of this bra as well as its easy, sleek fit. Stocked in 30-38 bands, B-F cups.

Elomi Amelia Spacer

Made with the amazing 3D spacer technology, the Amelia Spacer has been a favorite for our larger band/cup clients. Its smooth cup and lower gusset make this super wearable. We also carry the Amelia’s sister, the Charley Spacer, which is essentially the same bra, just offered in different colors. Stocked in 36-46 bands, US H-L / UK FF-HH cups.

Chantelle Festivite Plunge

Wait, you say, this style doesn’t look like the others? True, the Festivite has a gorgeous overlay of lace, which may lead to concern that texture will show through clothing, yet the engineered fabric allows the bra to remain smooth under clothing. In fact, the lace adds to this bra’s smoothness. As the name implies, this bra has a deep plunge in the center, but because the lace is so flexible, it helps to hold you in the cup and minimize any “bubble” out of the cup, even in larger cup sizes! Who says you can’t have pretty and practical? Stocked in 30-38 bands, B-G cups.

Looking for a wireless option? We’ve got you covered! Below are some of our best-selling wireless t-shirt bras. :)

Wacoal How Perfect Soft Contour

This bra is amazingly soft and versatile. The How Perfect Contour (and its sister for larger cup sizes, the How Perfect Full) has a soft feel yet also has a great shape under clothes. This style runs very tight in the band! We recommend getting your sister size in the band size up. For example, if you normally wear a 32C, purchase a 34B instead. Stocked in 30-38 bands, A-E cups.

Natori Bliss Perfection Wireless

This style became an instant hit once it arrived at La Lingerie! Similar to the How Perfect Contour, the Bliss Perfection has just a little bit of pretty that makes it less plain Jane. The band of lace is soft and stretchy and adds a touch of delicacy. It also matches the Bliss Perfection one-size Thong and Bikini for a set you’ll want to wear every day! This style runs stretchy in the band and a little big in the cups, so if you are between sizes or prefer the band a little tighter, we suggest getting the size down. Stocked in 30-38 bands, A-E cups.
