A t-shirt bra is simply a term for a smooth, seamless bra that doesn’t show any lines underneath clothes. Most are designed to prevent nipple show-though. They are given the name t-shirt bra because this style tends to look best under t-shirts, which are usually made of cotton and are often clingier and prone to show-through. But t-shirt bras don’t have to be worn strictly with t-shirts. A properly fitting t-shirt bra will look great under any outfit. They are perfect for added modesty at the office and look super sleek under dress clothes.
T-shirt bras often come in basic colors like ivory, beige and black, as they are designed to blend in rather than stand out. But they can be found in lots of different colors and prints, and are available with floral and lace embellishments.
T-shirt bras come with and without an underwire. While the term t-shirt bra might make you think this is a more casual bra (like a leisure bra), this is not true. A well-fitting t-shirt bra offers full support, and is certainly an excellent option for plus size figures.
It might sound like a t-shirt bra is a no brainer, but there is room for error. Make sure that you get the proper fit when buying a t-shirt bra. When incorrectly fitted, a t-shirt bra can create bumps and bulges under your clothes, and you’ll end up with a look that is the complete opposite of what you should have. If you’re having trouble, ask a bra fitter for help.
