I have a wardrobe confession: I don’t wear proper bras. I wear lightweight “shelf” bras built into camisoles. And this is not my first life era going bra-less: Naturally I went sans bra in the late 60’s – early 70’s to show solidarity with the Movement, and because I had a small chest.
|These are my go-to cami-bras in navy, black and nude.|
I had breast implants in my early 30’s and enjoyed having a different silhouette for a decade and a half. I wore “good” bras then, wanting to protect, serve and uplift my bosom. One of my implants burst, and I had them removed. So I am small-chested again and loving it.
But even while larger-busted I found bras uncomfortable, and they were the first things to come off after work – sometimes while in the car (though never on the subway). I know, I was probably “wearing the wrong size, like most women.” TL;DR, I’ve never worn a real bra, of any brand or price, that was truly comfortable.
I love the comfort, freedom and modesty of my cami-bras, especially under a sheer top. I will probably not go back to proper bras, at this advanced age. (I do wear a supportive sports bra for working out.)

I’d love to hear from you – have you found that perfect bra that you enjoy wearing? Or are you still doing the major ahhhhhh at the end of the day when you take it off? No wrong answers, of course, we like what we like.
Browse the bras – it seems like there’s something for every taste : >
