The Best Sustainable Wireless Bras for Style and Comfort
Nothing is more important for style and comfort than a great bra. If it hugs you, lifts you, and makes you feel great all day, you’ve found a winner. But can you find a sustainable wireless bra that delivers? Oh yes, you can!
Investing in your undergarments is a great way to uplift (sorry!) your whole sustainable wardrobe. If your girls look great, then chances are your tops and dresses will fit well, too.
It’s also important to think about how the bra makes you feel. Do you feel a bit sexy in your bra? Does it give you that spring in your step? If not, it might be time to find a new support system.
In this post, I’ll offer some great options to find the perfect sustainable wireless bra for you.
What do we mean by ‘sustainable’?
The first thing to consider when you’re looking for a sustainable wireless bra is just that – what is sustainable? I like to think about sustainability as something that is good for the long-term health and happiness of people and planet.
If a product is good for people, it is developed in a way that supports human rights throughout the supply chain. The company, factories, and practices behind the product prioritise the lives and livelihoods of every person involved in production. This makes products ethical, too.
For planet, I look for items that are both made of better resources and produced in such a way that they minimise environmental impact. Organic cotton, recycled materials, and strong eco-friendly policies are all good indicators of a brand that’s good for the planet.
Are wireless bras good for you?
When you’re looking for a great bra, one of your key choices is to have an underwire or go wireless. While rumours have suggested that a wireless bra is better for you, breastcancer.org categorically states ‘Underwire bras do not cause breast cancer.’ So really, to wire or not to wire just comes down to personal preference.
Here are a few of the pros and cons of a sustainable wireless bra:
- Can be more comfortable, especially for all-day wear
- Innovations means new designs offer great support
- Can offer more freedom and flexibility
- Can lack support, especially for bigger chests
- Not always as shaping
- Can cause discomfort as they offer less weight distribution than underwired bras
Where can I buy a sustainable bra?
Sustainable wireless bras, and sustainable bras in general, are easier to come by than you might think! Here are a few great brands to check out when you’re in the market for a little extra support:
Top tip: if you find a favourite, tell a friend! Sustainable sexy comfort is something to be shared. Another bonus? It’s a great way to start an honest conversation about sustainable and ethical fashion.
