Low-stakes hot take: Underwires suck. I get that support is a very important thing for the very well-endowed. But as someone with basically zero boobs, underwire does little but stab me in the ribcage. I hate it. And when it’s 100 degrees (and humid AF) outside, my patience for tediousness wains at an exponential degree. Come summer, I don’t have time for underwires. What I do have time for, though, is every adorable summer bralette on the market.

As a card-carrying member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee, I’ve long been a fan of bralettes in their near-unending glory. Soft, cozy and absolutely structure-less, they’re basically pajamas for your boobs. If it were socially acceptable to wear pajamas 24/7, you’d consider it, wouldn’t you? Well, you basically can—just buy a shit-ton of bralettes. Sure, not even the plushest, most luxurious fabric will hold a candle to that free-your-boobs-from-your-bra-at-the-end-of-the-day feel. But. Bralettes come pretty damn close. (And certainly closer than actual friggin’ bras do.)

If you’ve been blessed with mammaries that are not particularly tiny, you may be reading this with some level of disdain. Why do the small-breasted among us get to revel in the comfort bralettes afford, while you’re stuck wearing underwires everywhere you go? Good news: You mightn’t have to. My large-chested colleague, Maggie Griswold, has done some first-hand research in this department and has stumbled upon a bralette that comfortably houses her D-cup boobs. All hope isn’t lost. (She’s also found a number of plus-size bralettes that hold up, too.)

I’m, quite frankly, shocked that we’ve reached the year 2019 without finding a way to support boobs that doesn’t involve literal metal. But we’re getting there. So go forth. Bralette-shop your heart out. Because your boobs deserve it, you deserve it, we all deserve it.
