Top Bra Features to Look For
Let’s face it - we could all use a lot more support right now, and there’s no reason to spend another day with a busted brassiere. A bad bra can cause pain in your shoulders, neck, and back, and it can be awful for your posture, too. If your bra is running ragged (or if it never did much for you in the first place), it’s time to call in the reinforcements.
At Tommy John, we’ve spent years developing and perfecting the most comfortable bras on the planet, and we’re not afraid to say so. Here’s a list of all our ingenious bra features to help you stay comfy and stylish, day-in and day-out:
Fabrics you can live in
Some say the clothes make the woman. We say the cloth makes the clothes. If your everyday bra is made from stiff, itchy fabric that you can’t wait to take off each day, it’s time for a change. The perfect bra materials should have these two essential features:
Our Second Skin fabric is silky smooth and an absolute dream against your skin. This is one of those ‘game changer’ bras - as in, wear it once and you’ll never want to settle for less.
Air light & breathable
The last thing anyone wants to deal with on a hot day is boob sweat. Our Cool Cotton bras feature a perforated bra cup lining that can keep the air flowing and wick away moisture, so you stay cool and dry.
Whether you opt for our Lightly Lined Demi or our wireless bras, you can bet your assets it will be the most comfortable and supportive bra you’ve ever worn. You may even love it so much that you treat yourself to another one.
Convertible & adaptable
Each one of our types of bras comes with fully adjustable straps that will allow the bra to stay in place and provide you with breast support. That means no digging or slipping throughout the day. Our Plush Back Extended Closure offers four hooks to extend the life of your bra and keep you feeling supported as your body shifts in size from one day to the next. Although this is the case, it is still important to find a bra that fits you comfortably on the tightest hook. Using our bra size guide, you can find the perfect bra size for you.
Our Lightly Lined Demi Bra and Cool Cotton Wireless Bra have convertible straps so you can go classic or cross back as your body shifts in size as well. If you are wondering, “what is a Demi Bra,” you can learn more about that here.
A little underwire digging into your ribs might just seem like the price you have to pay for a perfect bra that gets the job done. It’s not. Tommy John’s Lightly Lined Demi Bra offers all the breast support of the underwire with none of the bloodletting metal. This wire rests comfortably on your breastbone and is fully embedded for flexible support wherever you go.
Our Second Skin bras feature a ComfortStrength Wing for a smoothing, cozy feel without any digging, slipping, or irritation. Each bra cup is seam-free for a smooth, contoured feel you’ll find positively addictive.
State of the art Bralettes
Our no-hassle bralettes are a godsend for those days when you need something lightweight that can handle it if you have to put some bounce in your step.
Does a breathable, pullover bralette that actually gives you support sound like a fantasy? How about three? Our Triangle Bralette uses convertible, fully adjustable straps so you can decide whether to keep them traditional or go cross-back. Meanwhile, our Scoop Bralettes come equipped with ComfortStrength elastic bands for an everyday bra that’s guaranteed not to dig into your skin. Grab a Classic Scoop Bralette in Cool Cotton or Second Skin, or go for the Micro Ribbed Cross Back for your high-octane days.
Built-in power mesh
Our bra utilizes this supportive mesh lining to lift your breasts off of your chest and keep them separated to stave off the dreaded uni-boob. It’s like having the coziness of a bralette with the power of a sports bra.
Removable pads offer versatility for the times when you need extra support and shaping. It also means you can easily adjust your degree of nipple coverage. These pads give you more flexibility throughout the month as your breast shape and size shift.
The bottom line
If you think of a regular bra as something to be tolerated (at best), it’s time to start fresh. By putting comfort, fit, and flexibility first, Tommy John has created the right bra for you, no matter the occasion; whether you’re heading to work, working from home, or enjoying a night out on the town. And for the ultra-light days when you feel like having a little extra freedom, you always have the option to slip on a camisole.
We love our bras, and we know you’ll love them, too. In fact, we guarantee it. If you’re not head over heels for your new Tommy John bra, it’s on the house.
