So Many People Agree That These Are the Best 3 Bras, Period
The hunt for the perfect bra seems like a never-ending battle that people around the world struggle with on a daily basis. Where should you turn for advice on the best lingerie, and who should you trust?
When we started spending time trying to solve this problem, we had an epiphany. Instead of turning to salespeople or enticing advertisements, why not turn to the people who actually wear bras? After all, they’re the ones living their lives in these bras, and to our surprise, they had a lot to say about their life-changing undergarments of choice.
As we sifted through countless reader reviews on multiple retailers’ sites, there were three bras that people could not quit raving about. To give you a better idea of what we mean, these bras had between 300 and 600 customer reviews, and each received a five-star ranking.
Each of these bras definitely has a few standout qualities in common, from the technical design and construction to the style and how it makes people feel. We can’t underestimate the importance of quality materials—lace, silk, stretch mesh, hardware, etc. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what people have to say about their favorite bras and find out what they agree on when it comes to the best bra ever.
“This is literally the best bra I have ever owned, and I don’t think twice about the price. I only wash mine on the cold cycle and never put them in a dryer. I also use a bra keeper. I go out of my way to hand-wash the bra because other brands don’t hold me together or look as pretty. This is the best bra you will ever own. I used to live and die by padded bras for the lift, support, and balance (I have some asymmetry), but this bra really does the job and actually works overtime.”
“This bra gives me plenty of support while still looking feminine. It has the look of traditional corsetry design, which adds a bit of sass while doing its job. I’ve been wearing this style for years, and the bras last a long time while keeping me supported and looking good. This is my go-to daytime/work bra; for the evening, I adore other Chantelle styles. But this style is still my best friend!”

“This is, hands down, the most supportive, comfortable, confidence-inspiring, make-my-breasts-look-awesome bra in the drawer.”
“The Natori Feathers is my daily go-to bra. The plunge is such a natural silhouette and works under almost any piece of clothing in my wardrobe.”
“I own at least 50 bras, all in great shape, but generally, I find after buying and wearing them there is something missing. This bra, however, hits all the buttons. It is supportive, holds its shape, and is not overly decorative. The straps have some detail, and it pairs well with just about everything from plunging necklines to T-shirts. I am also glad they offer a variety of sizes. This bra is also cut well in the back, so there is very little back fat spillover at the top. I bought it in two colors. I liked it so much!”
“This is my favorite bra. [It’s] the second time I’ve purchased it. I’ve tried so many other bras/brands, but this is by far the most comfortable and meets all my requirements. I’m picky. I want a bra to look smooth under my clothes. I want it to lift and push my breasts inward so [that] I don’t look smashed or spread to the side, and I want a bra that has good side coverage so I don’t look like I have back fat. This bra meets all my needs.“
An Amazon reviewer praised this racerback bra for its perfect fit, secure full coverage, plunging design, and lack of excessive padding. Plus, no pinching, digging, riding, warping, gaping, or chafing.
Calvin Klein’s T-shirt bra is the perfect everyday piece. “I’m a 32DDD and have dropped some major money on bras over the years. I still splurge on some fancier stuff, but for an everyday bra that gets replaced two or three times a year, this is the GOAT.” — Amazon Reviewer
So many Skims bras made it into this roundup, but the reviews don’t lie. “This may be the most comfortable bra I’ve ever put on. The material is so unbelievably soft, and it doesn’t dig in around the back and/or shoulders. I’m a size 34D, and the Medium fit perfectly. Ordering more colors right away!!” — Nordstrom Reviewer
One more Natori bra since the brand is clearly a fan favorite. “I love Natori and have been wearing their bras for several years now. They are so pretty, and they hold up amazingly. And most importantly, they are, hands down, the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. This newer style is super stealth under a shirt or tank top, and I like that the straps are a bit lacy. I have a small bust, and sometimes it can be hard to find an underwire that is comfy. This one is just as amazing as my other Natori bras, and the color is so much more fun than nude or white! Definitely recommend.” — Nordstrom Reviewer
Almost too pretty to cover up. “I love how this bra fits. [It’s] super comfortable and makes my bust look great! I would buy it in more colors.” — Shopbop Reviewer
Our editors have given almost every Skims bra a raving review. “[This is the] best bra I’ve ever owned. Amazing quality. [It’s] so soft [that] I forget I’m even wearing a bra. It runs a little small on band size, so I would size up on that but keep normal cup size.” — Nordstrom Reviewer
With over a whopping 30,000 reviews, this one is worth adding to your cart. “I was looking for a new bra that did not add extra bulk or padding while still offering good coverage and fit. This bra met every one of my goals, and it’s also quite pretty too. I liked it so much [that] I purchased multiple colors. Great price for such an exceptional undergarment. Sincerely impressed!” — Amazon Reviewer
Some people want a push-up, but others want a minimizer. If you’re the latter, this is the bra you should add to your cart. “This is the most comfortable bra I have ever owned. I have been happily wearing Chantelle bras for eight years, but this style puts Chantelle on a whole new level. I wear a 38H, and it has always been a challenge to find a bra that is stylish, comfortable, and gives a great look. This bra does all three. Kudos to the fabulous staff in the Nordstrom Intimates department, who are knowledgeable and always positive— a great thing when looking for a bra that fits!” — Nordstrom Reviewer
For the smoothest look yet. “It’s a struggle to find a good bra for a full figure, let alone one that you can wear under T-shirts that doesn’t have seams, etc. This is perfect and very comfortable. Love this brand!” — Nordstrom Reviewer
Supportive and sultry. “This is the best bra for a large chest! My size has changed in the last year, causing my chest size to go up to a 36(4D). This bra feels like a naked bra, and it minimizes, which I really wanted. There is no double boob, and it feels very light.”—Nordstrom Reviewer
This is one bra you’ll definitely want to be showing off. “This is the first non-padded bra I’ve owned in a long time, and I love it. I’m a 32C / 34B, so I always feel like I need a little extra, but this is super adorable and flattering. Would totally buy it again.” — Nordstrom Reviewer
Just the right amount of sheer. “This is one of my favorite bras. I purchased one over a year ago, and this is my second. It gives me good support without the extra padding. It gives me a nice shape, more forward, and up giving my clothes an attractive appearance. It’s also comfortable.” — Nordstrom Reviewer
This bra proves bralettes can provide support too. “I am officially a Skims convert. This is my new favorite bralette. [I] just ordered three more so that I can basically live in them. I am a 34B, and the small fits great and is so comfortable!” — Nordstrom Reviewer
Customers can’t stop raving about this one. “Everyone knows how uncomfortable a strapless bra can be. Everyone knows how a strapless bra likes to fall down. But this little wonder kept the girls up where they belonged through a whole night of dancing! And I was not tugging at the top of it every 5 minutes. It’s a really great, uplifting, stable bra. I highly suggest it. I wear a 32 DDD, for your reference.” — Nordstrom Reviewer
Feel supported even when you’re working out. “I have a large chest and need a lot of support for riding horses. This bra does a great job of keeping my chest secure and supported with minimal bounce. I’m a 36DDD.” — Nordstrom Reviewer
The reviews for this one really say it all. “Skims never misses! The most comfortable and perfect bra. I need one in every color! I want to wear it all the time, and it makes them girls sit up nice!” — Nordstrom Reviewer
If you’re looking for a beautiful strapless bra, this one gets rave reviews. “I worked for Nordstrom for two years in the lingerie department, so I know my stuff. This bra is fab. I am a 32G. Wacoals bands run tight, so I purchased this in the 34F(DDD). It fits perfectly. I can’t believe an unlined, strapless(!!) could fit this well. It also has an insert every 1/4″ for the straps to customize. I am a Chantelle girl through and through but bravo Wacoal, bravo!” — Nordstrom Reviewer
True rave reviews. “Stop what you’re doing and purchase this bra! It is so comfortable that I could sleep in it. Yet it still gives shape, so it’s not just a comfy T-shirt bra. I can also wear it under work clothes. The best part was that I simply ordered my size online, and it fits like a glove. I will be ordering another one soon.” — Nordstrom Reviewer
This bralette is touted for its comfort and light support.
