For those of us who have been free-boobing it over the course of the pandemic, the thought of strapping our breasts back into a bra with wires is the embodiment of the word: “Ugh.” After all, as we learned this year, losing your bra can help to improve the muscle tone of the breast area, it can improve circulation in the area, and it can help clear up sweat-induced boob pimples, which are all too common.
But as we begin to emerge from our sweatpants chrysalis and move toward some semblance of normal life, there are going to be instances where supporting our tatas will be a necessary evil. Ease your boobs back into the “wearing a bra” life with one of these neutral comfy bralettes, that with hues like dusty coral and soft pinks are anything but boring. Keep scrolling for our favorites.
1. Hah Chi Bralette, $34
This lace bralette from eco-conscious label Hah looks hand-wash delicate, but—plot twist—it’s sturdy enough that you can just toss it in the washing machine. (Let it air dry, though.) It also comes in 16 colors, from neutrals to vibrant colors. I highly recommend pairing it with the brand’s Chase Me Down Panty ($24) for a lingerie look that is both extremely comfy and extremely sexy.

3. Soma Enbliss Bralette, $48
If you’re looking for a bralette with support, this is it. The thicker band at the bottom helps lift up boobs, but because of said band, it is recommended to go up one size for the most comfortable fit. It comes with removable cups, and is available in 13 colors and sizes XS to XXL.

Fans of the brand’s popular triangle bralette will appreciate this similar-but-different version. At first glance, it looks virtually the same—but key differences are that the lifting bralette has crossover cups that help hug your boobs and the fabric contains a smidge more elastane. It comes in 12 neutral shades and sizes XXS to 4X.

8. Richer Poorer Classic Bralette, $22 (originally $32)
This bralette is made from a modal-cotton blend, so it’s soft but not super-stretchy. It also has adjustable straps (yay) and comes in an assortment of colors, like navy, electric lilac, and summer cinnamon, which we’re fulling calling as a neutral.
