    1. A microfiber Calvin Klein T-shirt bra that's lightly padded for everyday shape and support, but not so padded that you'll get those annoying cup lines under your favorite ultra-thin jersey T-shirt.

    FYI, this is included in Prime Wardrobe so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising review: "This bra is everything I wanted: it's not too expensive, fits like a glove, comfortable, almost invisible, and it passes the white T-shirt test. I was worried about the Fresh Taupe color because I'm very pale and it's a bit gray, but it works for me. I've already washed it (cold, hang dry) and the cups maintained their shape. I ordered my normal EU size, and there is a tiny bit of gapping in the front, but it's only very slight. I normally wear bras that are double or triple the price, but I'll be buying this in a few more colors." —Julia

    Get it from Amazon for $17.86+ (available in band sizes 30–44, cup sizes B–DDD, and in 15 colors).

    2. A comfy Warner's wire-free bra if you consider over 2,500+ 5-star reviews compelling enough evidence to try a bra lauded as both incredibly comfortable and supportive!,

    Promising review: "Perfect T-shirt bra. True to size, follow the size chart. So comfortable. At first I thought the straps would dig but I adjusted and they fit great. No digging, no gaping, completely smooth under clothes and perfect stretch. It’s so supportive and has a little lift. Love this bra for everyday wear. Will be getting more in other colors." —RW

    Get it from Amazon for $18.59+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 15 colors).

    3. The original ThirdLove bra with half cup sizes so you can make like Goldilocks and find a perfect fit that'll disappear under clothes and is not too big, not too small, but juuusst right.


    Promising review: "Great for white T-shirts! I love this bra SO much. I thought the line stitching at the top of the cups was going to show a line through my shirts, but I tried it on with my white T-shirt that ALWAYS shows bra lines and it was invisible! so so happy with this purchase." —Laura

    Get it from ThirdLove for $65 (available in band sizes 30–48, cup sizes AA–I and in nine colors).

    4. A wire-free contour bra because you've been dealing with unnecessary bra-blems for too long, and this one is here to give you the invisible cloud-level comfort you've been searching for.


    FYI, this is included in Prime Wardrobe so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising review: "Fast shipment! Great bra. It's actually one of my favorite finds. It is so comfortable and I love wearing it under plain white T-shirts. It's not a noticeable bra. Which is great! No wires, no metal, all comfort like a cloud. Highly recommend. I am a 38 DD and purchased a 38 D. Fit perfectly!" —Lua

    Get it from Amazon for $14.90+ (available in band sizes 32–40, cup sizes A–D, and in 17 colors).

    Promising review: "Do you hear a choir of angels?! Becayse I sure do! They're singing hallelujah!!! I fell in love with T-shirt bras years ago; it's hard to find them at a reasonable price these days. I just received this bra this morning and couldn't wait to leave a review. I LOVE IT!!! Soooo happy right this minute! Fits perfectly (I'm a 38B and the sizing was exact), well constructed, no pinching or bulging — comfortable as heck. Bra is smooth underneath my shirt, too. You better believe when I get paid next week that I'll be ordering three more of these lovely puppies. Yayyyyyy for me!" —Wendy

    Promising review: "My bra set is not only comfortable and is very supportive. Since the set is flesh tone, I feel good about wearing it with any color combination of clothing. The texture feels like silk against my skin. Thank you for offering such a wonderful product." —Orlett Pearson

    8. A mesh-trimmed Bali ultra-light bra with convertible straps if you're looking for a bra that'll work under your fave white T-shirt AND your fave racerback tank.,

    Promising review: "I bought two of these at the Bali store, and loved them so much that I ordered two more on Amazon. They fit better than any bra I own and are so comfortable; they are like wearing nothing. They look great under T-shirts and thin shirts. I hope they never stop making this bra. I will keep buying them to stock up." —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in band sizes 34–42, cup sizes B–DD, and in 13 colors).

They produce locally in Los Angeles (ensuring that workers are paid fair wages) and all of their packaging is 100% recyled AND recyclable.

    Promising review: "The most comfortable and well-fitting bra ever! (Important, though, to follow measurement instructions to be sure you get the correct size.) Soft fabric but still supportive, does not show under t-shirts, easy hand wash and quick dry. My only suggestion would be a bit of lace, if that would not increase the cost or cancel the sustainability." —Kathryn M.

    Get it from Proclaim for $59 (available in sizes S–3X and in four colors).

    10. An actually affordable two-pack of lightly lined bras made from a soft cotton-blend because I've yet to meet anyone who feels like they have enough everyday T-shirt bras.,

    Promising review: "Finally! Bras that fit the way they are supposed to fit without costing a fortune! I have to buy 34/36 DDD due to being larger on one side than the other, and still can't avoid spilling over. These bras fit wonderfully and I can wear a fitted T-shirt without feeling self-conscious. $20 for two great bras? Heck yeah! If you are in between band sizes, definitely go larger. I've had these for about six weeks and they seem to be holding up well. The straps are not getting stretched out and the cups are not flattened from washing. Thanks, FOTL, for making a bra for real women!" —Christine D

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $8.80+ (available in band sizes 34–42, cup sizes A–DDD, and in four color combinations).

    Promising review: "LOVE! I'm a 28F, but went with a nude 30DD since the 28F wasn't available when I needed it. Fits like a glove. Full coverage so I don't have spillage over the top. Perfect amount of lift and support without adding volume. Nips sufficiently covered. Definitely passed the white T-shirt test." —E. Anderson
