Comfort has become all the rage of late, but at True&Co it’s been front and center in our efforts to design a supportive, well fitting bra for women of all shapes and sizes since Day 1. In fact, everything we do is based on one core principle, for every woman to feel comfortable in her own skin. We want it to no longer feel like a comfortable bra is the proverbial needle in a haystack, and instead that your entire dresser drawer is full of them, in a variety of styles, necklines, colors and patterns.
How to Find a Bra that is Supportive and Comfortable?
So how exactly do you wade through the ocean of available bra options and find a style that delivers on the ubiquitous promise of ultimate comfort and support? We always suggest starting from scratch, meaning revisiting your breast shape (check out our overview of Types of Boobs) and bra measurements.
Find your size
Proper sizing is the basis of ensuring adequate support coupled with ultimate comfort. If it’s been awhile since you were professionally measured, start with our guide to How to Measure Bra Size. From there, take our True&Co fit quiz which guides you through a series of shape, size and style preference questions, ultimately delivering our top three picks based on your answers.
Comfortable Supportive Options
Sizing is truly key to supportive comfort, as a bra made specifically for your cup and band size ensures a proper fit that lifts without digging in and smooths to contour your natural shape. We break it down fully in our Best Bras for Support but here’s a quick overview of how sizing impacts comfort.
Size A-D Support
For “standard” cup sizes A through D, support is still important to ensure comfort as even smaller breasts benefit from shaping. At the larger end of this range, women with D cups may also feel more comfortable and supported in a bra that is designed to lift.
Full Coverage Support
For cup sizes DD+, additional coverage can amplify comfort by giving breast tissue adequate support. True & Co Full Cup sizing is designed specifically for DD/E and DDD/F at any band size, offering a variety of bra styles with Full Coverage Support.
Plus Size Support
In addition to our Full Cup lineup, many True&Co styles are designed for sizes 2X and 3X, with Plus Size Support. With sizing that combines your cup letter and band number to determine an alpha size (XS-3X), then allows you to select a cup range (A-D or DD-DDD cup), a more specific fit provides plus size comfort that’s like being naked, only better.
Comfortable Supportive Bra for Working Out
Don’t dread your workout because of your bra. So many sports bras are either too constrictive or not supportive enough, which can not only be uncomfortable during a workout but even after. Focus on finding a supportive sports bra that moves with you providing support while you’re working out and comfort even if you’re not.
Supportive Sports Bra
A crowd favorite for good reason, our go-to supportive sports bra is a classic scoop. Made of our softest True Body fabric in a heavier weight for increased support, the True Body Lift Scoop Neck Bra earns its four star rating from over 1200 customer reviews, some who say it’s quite literally life changing.
Overall Most Comfortable Bras with Support
With comfort centerstage, we designed our full lineup of True Body Lift styles with a wirefree channel that lifts up to one full inch. Achieve this level of support in your favorite neckline, strap design or detail like cooling mesh for comfort even when things heat up.
Lifting Adjustable Strap Bra
Our signature wirefree channel meets adjustable straps in our True Body Lift Triangle Adjustable Strap Bra to customize your comfort. You’ll want to wear this one all day, every day, and that’s ok as it’s engineered to retain its shape and stretch as well as contour and elevate. We might just suggest you stock up on beautiful neutrals and skin tone solids to amp up your rotation.
Lifting V Neck Bra
Similar in comfort, support and wirefree ease, our True Body Lift V Neck Racerback Bra is designed for sizes up to 42DDD. Both styles offer a full cup coverage option with removable pads allowing for a custom fit. The V neck silhouette works well with lower cut tops and dresses and our softest True Body fabric smooths and supports. Available in ten colorful solids and bold patterns, it’s a must have for any woman's wardrobe.
Mesh Bra with Lift
Our much loved scoop just got a little cooler, quite literally, thanks to a bit of mesh right where you need it most. Strategically placed to enhance comfort with extra airflow, the rounded neckline is matched with a ballet inspired mesh back. With all of the benefits of our original crowd favorite, the True Body Lift Mesh Scoop Neck Bra delivers serious support (up to a full inch of lift), breathability, wirefree ease and second skin comfort.
