3. Panache Underwire Sports Bra
Let’s be real. Most of us have probably worn our sports bra once or twice on a night out or running everyday errands. I know I have! So we simply can’t talk about comfortable bras without mentioning a sports bra, which you can easily wear in everyday life.
This ultimate sports bra combines comfort and maximum support whilst fitting and feeling like a normal bra. This is hands down one of the most comfortable bras I have ever worn. It may not be the sexiest option, but for a sports bra it’s still pretty darn flattering.
The mix of polyamide, polyester and elastane material provides an exceptional freedom of movement. The breathable mesh panels keep your skin cool not only when working out. The bra also comprises a lightweight microfiber fabric that wicks moisture away from the skin.
As with most sports bras this one should be hand washed or washed on a gentle machine cycle.
Where do we start with this one? First, the wide cushioned straps will evenly distribute pressure across your shouldersfor extra comfort. The underwires are wrapped in silicone and sewn between fabric layers for a comfortably supported bust.
Panache sports bras creators have really taken their time to understand all body type women's frustration when it comes to doing sports, which clearly is – bounce. Research backed by extensive tests using 3-D and biomechanical technology prove that Panache sports bra reduces bounce by 83%.
It is proven to reduce movement to all sides and comfortably hold your breasts at the same, normal shape. This is a fine combination of support, maximized comfort and seriously minimized bounce.
Rather than compressing your breasts to the point where you can’t breathe (like most sports bras), this one individually encapsulates each one to avoid the crushing uni-boob. The smooth cups expertly reduce friction whilst lifting, shapingand supporting from all angles.
Also, you still have the easy hooks at the back like a regular bra. You can now save yourself from having to pull that tricky elastic nightmare over your head! Let’s keep our hair tidy before we leave the house, shall we?

8. Panache Tango Balconette
Let me start off by saying this bra is BEAUTIFUL. While we are focusing on the most comfortable bras, this stylish piece is as comfy as it is sexy! Looks aside, the Panache Tango Balconette bra absolutely deserves its place on this list of comfort.
The cradle shape gives a comfortable support around the body, making it ideal for the curvier woman. However, the range of measurements ensures a great fit for almost any shape and size!

This bra may be suitable for a gentle machine wash—but best to take the extra time to hand wash. We don’t want to go compromising the quality!
This Panache Tango bra comes in different colors for different sizes. Taken that it might not always be best for a see through T-shirt, if you have got it in you – we believe it can become fashionable, too.

Nylon and elastane, our durable and stretchy friends. We see this combination often while looking for the most comfortable bra. This isn’t a coincidence, it just works! The two fabrics seem to be the best of friends, and their favorite thing to do is to provide comfort for us. We recommend a handwash for this one. Even though it’s made of durable fabrics, we wouldn’t want to risk the quality in that aggressive washing machine.

10. Coobie Seamless V-Neck with Lace Bra
Last but certainly not least, this is a bit of a special one-The Coobie Seamless Scoopneck. I personally have a few of these as my go-to’s. The seamless construct provides an almost non-existent and comfortable feel while still maintaining support.
This is why these bras are popular among post augmentation patients. If a bra is capable of providing comfort for something as painful as post-augmentation then every day comfort is almost too easy for this baby!

What to Pay Attention to While Looking for a Comfortable Bra
Finding the perfect bra is essential for feeling comfortable and supported. So, let’s begin with the fit. Besides creating a lovely cleavage, a good fitting bra means you’ll have a better posture, relief from back pain and comfort with no pinching, rubbing or digging in.
Even though it can feel exasperating, it’s worth the time to take your own measurements before ordering a bra online. Most (if not all) websites will have a size guide. We recommend you read it very carefully and gain an understanding of the sizes to make sure you order the perfect fitting bra for your shape and size.
- Band Size
We can’t talk about fit without mentioning one of the main reasons behind a misfit—the band and its size. Your bra should always sit horizontally around your body to prevent any uncomfortable or unflattering shaping. Another example of how taking your measurements can be handy.
Every now and then we can be a little dismissive of the fabric type if the bra fits well. However, it’s safe to say that choosing the right material is more of a responsibility than desire. Depending on how often you wear it and how it’s washed-the average bra can last for a very long time before getting stretched out. Though, it helps to invest in a reliable and comfortable fabric to get the most comfort and longevity out of your new bra.
Style-wise, we can get a little lost in looks over comfort. Remember, not all that glitters is gold. While it is important to feel sexy from time to time, we cannot forget the importance of comfortability. Luckily, there is a huge range of bras out there now. So now you don’t have to settle for a bra that makes you feel not-so-good about yourself. It’s very possible to find a size and shape to flatter your chest, without the discomfort!
