At YUNION T we know our t-shirts… which means we also know a thing or two about the best t-shirt bras. Although our exclusive cotton:lycra blend ensures 100% opacity – meaning no one will be seeing your bra – the perfect t-shirt bra will create the right foundations and allow our flattering tees to ‘skim and not cling’.
It goes without saying, even the best of bras won’t get a perfect fit unless they are the right size – overspilling cups, a too tight rear band, slipping straps… they will all cause unflattering lumps and bumps. Ensure you are wearing the correct size and shape for your body, then get inspired by our top picks…
Perfect for summer:
Independent Notting Hill lingerie and swimwear store, Bodas has been a favourite for years. We love the pretty pastels and perfect fit of their luxury everyday bras. This Tactel-blend underwired t-shirt bra in candy pink has discreet darts on the cup to gently shape. It’s super lightweight and breathable; perfect for summer days.
The best for shape:
Triumph’s ‘Body Make Up’ range fits like a glove – it has very light padding that doesn’t add volume, just ensures their shaping is second-to-none and super soft, too.
The foolproof everyday basic:
M&S has been the British woman’s underwear ‘go-to’ forever and rightly so. This is the bra we recommend to customers most – we get asked a lot! It’s a great price for a fab, everyday bra that gives a good full cup to prevent ‘overspill’ and soft-padding for a flattering shape.
The no wire option:
Founded in 1946, Wacoal know a thing or two about undergarments. If you prefer a non-underwired option, this jersey soft-cup bra is the ultimate in comfort.
Jersey soft cup bra, £46, Wacoal available at Selfridges
Ideal for larger cup size:
This gorgeous lilac t-shirt bra from Panache at Bravissimo is as pretty as it is practical. The smooth, full cup coverage makes it invisible under our t-shirts, but with pretty lace panelling it elevates it out of the ‘everyday basics’ category. There is also a handy hook that converts it into a racer-back bra, ideal for summer vests.
