amzn.to

"I have one in every color and it is the softest bra ever. I want to scream it from the rooftops but I'll settle with a comment on a Buzzfeed article." —Camille E.

Get it from Amazon for $15-$30.

2. Bralettes from Target that are just $12.

target.com, target.com

"All of my bralettes from Target! One is a padded bra without wiring so it's super supportive and comfy, while the other two are silky, cute, and perfect! I always forget they are even on. The best part is they were all only $12 apiece!" —Rachel S.

Get the padded bralette from Target for $12.99 and the lace one for $12.99.

3. Full coverage bras from Coobie that'll give DD sizes a vacation from underwire hell.

amzn.to

"The Coobie bra has changed my life! I'm a 40DD and I never thought I would go without underwire and feel comfortable in public. But the XL full coverage Coobie bra is like my breasts are on a permanent vacation from wire hell!" —Samantha C.

"They’re advertised as fitting up to 36D, but as a 40DD, they’re still comfy. Got mine when I got my nipples pierced last year and the piercer recommended a snug but soft and comfortable bra. These keep a gently padded barrier between your cozy cami or tee and the parts you don’t want visible beneath your shirt. I’m looking forward to the magical day when I can just buy a slew of colors and styles." —abbyw27

Get it from Amazon for $20.

4. Sunnie bras from Aerie by American Eagle that give top-notch support and comfort for D cups.

ae.com, ae.com

"I got rid of all my other bras when I discovered the Aerie Sunnie bra. It’s the most comfortable bra I’ve ever worn and I usually forget I’m wearing it. Haven’t had an issue with stretching out, either. It supports my 34Ds very well, and it even comes in cute colors and styles." —ashleym4636656d3

Get the full coverage from American Eagle for $40 and the demi coverage for $50. For all other Aerie Sunnie bras, go here.

5. The extreme comfort bra from Fruit of The Loom that's perfect for everyday wear.

amzn.to

"I'm a 38D, and as much as I love a lace bra, I mostly wear t-shirts, so I need a smooth bra that I can wear every day. Fruit Of The Loom 9292 Extreme Comfort Bra Is cotton/spandex, has an underwire, but is amazingly comfortable and cheap." —Tara W.

Get it from Amazon for $10-$25.

7. T-shirt bras from Walmart that shape and lift all sizes, including C and DD cups.

walmart.com

"They have a full coverage, a plunge, a plus size bra (they come in 38C to 46DD) for less than $15 that actually shapes and lifts. I own at least 10 and buy them up whenever I see my size. I'll be damned if they discontinue it!" —Lia D.

Get it from Walmart for $11.44

8. The high impact sports bra from Fila Running that offers strong support for DD cups when exercising.

kohls.com

"I wear a 28DD, so finding a sports bra that fits around my bust without the band being too loose is a challenge. I fell in love with the Fila Running High Impact Sports Bra. The band doesn’t roll up and it isn’t too loose like 99% of other sports bras I’ve worn. I feel secure and boob sweat isn’t an issue. There is not one bad thing about this bra. Honestly do yourself a favor, try this bra." —l41558f8e3

Get it from Kohl's for $14-$25.

9. The no-bind bra from Hanes that has convertible straps for maximum comfort.

amzn.to

"Honestly, it feels like I’m not even wearing the bra. The straps can also be switched around from criss-cross to straight, which is a plus." —samb45414c787

Get it from Amazon for $16-$36.

10. Bras from La Senza that are both functional and attractive and run for $30 or less.

lasenza.com, lasenza.com

"I love the cotton balconette style bras (remix collection) from La Senza. They are typically two for $30. These bras have such great support and are super cute! They were the first bras that actually made me loyal to a specific brand. I don’t buy anything but these now." —gilliang42192349f

Get the balconette bra from their site for $8 and the second demi bra for $17.

11. Wireless bras from Warner's that won't cause nerve damage like certain bras.

amzn.to

"After my VS bras were literally causing me to have nerve damage, I bought some Warners Cloud 9 wireless bras from Kohl's. They're so comfy and very supportive, even without the hardcore underwire." —kcmama0710

Get it from Amazon for $13-$40.

13. The convertible t-shirt bra from Ekouaer that works extremely well for bra size 32F.

amzn.to

"I have an uncommon bra size (32F), so I have a very difficult time finding inexpensive bras anywhere. I almost exclusively buy my bras online, and I recently purchased the Ekouaer strapless convertible t-shirt bra off Amazon. It’s one of the only bras I have now besides sports bras that actually does its job, and it stays up really well." —s4bc4e926c

Get it from Amazon for $16-$19.

14. Flirtitude bras from JC Penny's that you won't even remember you're wearing.

Get it from JC Penny's for $20.

16. Bras from H&M that work just as well as most Victoria's Secret bras.

hm.com, hm.com

"I'm a 34B and my vote is for any H&M bra! They are generally around $17 but go one sale for $10 and under pretty frequently. They provide the same coverage and lift as VS bras in my opinion." —kbauer420

Get the first balconette bra from H&M for $18 and the second soft-cup for $18.

17. Bras from Justice that work like a dream for those with smaller busts.

shopjustice.com

"I would have never considered it, but when I started working at Justice, I bought a clearance bralette as an emergency replacement for my bra that fell apart while I was there. It was so comfortable that I got hooked on them, and now I have about five bralettes that I wear on lazy days. They are aimed toward younger girls, but are awesome for smaller busts and almost all under $20." —Kenna B.

Get it from Justice for $18. See a list of other bralettes from their store here.

18. Nursing bras from La Isla that are not only flattering, but they also help mothers who nurse their babies.

amzn.to

"When I had my first baby, nursing and maternity bras were the bane of my existence. With my second baby, I knew I wanted a thick material to hide the nip, but no cushioning to hinder nursing. I took a chance on this one, the La Isla Maternity Nursing Bra 36D, and was so lucky I did. It is true to size, resembles a Demi-cup, and looks good. People seem to forget that pregnant women need bras, so I’m hoping this link helps someone out! Enjoy!" —nicolet4a926c145

Get them from Amazon for $18-20.

19. "This is not a bra" from Warner's that are front-adjustable and impossibly soft.

amzn.to

"I can wear this bra all day and forget that I have it on. With a 38DD, I I thought it’d be impossible to find something comfortable AND inexpensive but Warner's really hit it out of the park." —laurenp4971a12d8

Get it from Amazon for $16-$45.

20. Vassarette bras from Walmart that keep your boobs in place at all times.

walmart.com

"They last long and are super comfy. I’m a 36C and I don’t mind wearing bras. Not wearing one feels weird because then my boobs are just bouncing all over the place. I like sleeping in them because again, it keeps them in place." —muddgirl

Get this soft t-shirt bra from Walmart for $9. To see a list of other Vassarette bras, go here.

21. Bras from Lane Bryant that work wonders for F sizes.

lanebryant.com, lanebryant.com

"I wear an F, which SUCKS for bras (and your back). I wait until Lane Bryant has their bra event and they all go on sale, and then I buy four at the same time. The balconette style works great with huge tatas." —grooveycakes

Get the no-wire bra from Lane Bryant for $15 and the balconette bra for $34.

22. Knit bralettes from Forever 21 that are supportive for smaller busts and fantastically cheap at $8.

forever21.com

"It's inexpensive (not even $8), and it's the next best thing to not wearing a bra (no underwire, still supportive). Perfect for t-shirts, dresses, no shirt, everything. I own three right now." —brittanys44ac929fa

Get it from Forever 21 for $8.

23. The pullover bra from Gap that's actually easy to take off after sweating it out.

gap.com

"The material is soft like a vintage t-shirt, but thick enough to keep my boobs in place. It’s so comfortable and stretchy and YOU CAN EVEN TAKE IT OFF EASILY AFTER A SWEATY WORKOUT. It’s my go-to bra. At $25 it’s definitely affordable, but we all know GAP sends out coupons and has sales very consistently, so it’s not hard to find it for even cheaper. #GAP4LIFE" —Hopemhale

Get it from Gap for $25.

24. Cotton bralettes from Calvin Klein that you can wear for almost any occasion.

Calvin Klein cotton bralettes…http://..Can find them on Amazon from $18-$26 and they come in every color under the sun. Live in them! Good with so many outfits and light exercise* *speaking for smaller chests

"You can find them on Amazon for $18-$26 and they come in every color under the sun. Live in them! They're good with so many outfits and great for light exercise (speaking for smaller chests)" —Bethany R.

Get it from Amazon for $15-$28.

25. Bras from Maidenform that won't ever make you itchy with their fluffy foam padding.

target.com

"They have just a little bit of fluffy foam padding and they're by far the softest bra I’ve ever owned! Even the lace and bows aren’t itchy!" —jensenegraham

Get it from Target for $20. For other bras from the Self Expression's line, go here.

26. If you want to go for something that's pricier but will last a lifetime, get Wacoal's The La Femme bra.

amzn.to

"Okay I was a bra fitter at a high end retailer for a very long time and I can honestly say that the Wacoal La Femme is the greatest bra ever made. It’s not super cheap (around $60) but it lasts forever and it's so comfortable. It's better to buy a decent bra that lasts years and years than to buy one for $15 that has wires that snap after a few weeks." —r436fb69b6

Get it from Amazon for $25-$60.

27. Also up there are Third Love bras, which you'll come home yearning to fall asleep in.

thirdlove.com

"I’ve recently come across Third Love and I’m not sure I’ll ever go back. Their 24/7 bra is SO comfy, I fall asleep wearing it many times!!" —angelajeannej

Get it from their site for $68.

28. And of course, there's always gravity.

youtube.com

"My favorite, inexpensive bra is gravity. It’s absolutely free, and I didn’t have cleavage even when I tried, so I just say screw it. And then when people tell me, 'You need to wear a bra or your boobs will get saggy, your nipples will show, your boobs will look weird, or people will think you’re a slut,' I just sing very loudly to make a debacle:

These boobs are made for feeding

They’re not made just for you

One of these days these boobs

Are gonna bounce right over you!

Cha cha cha!"
