Sometimes I wonder about what traveling during the sexy sophisticated era of airplane travel was like. I had to take a quick trip last week, and I mostly spent the whole time in the airport feeling like a I was on a bus and that the airport employees were convinced that everyone was a criminal mastermind. On top of all of this my underwire bra set off the metal detector, which meant that I had to deal with extra security screening. On the way back, I wore my compression based sports bra and wanted to die by the end of the day. My chest hurt and I felt like I looked dumpy the whole time I was wearing it.
Since Thanksgiving is a big travel holiday, I thought it might be topical this week to cover some of the best wire-free bra choices out there for full busted women. Flying is miserable enough, but you don’t have to make your breasts miserable as well. While you may not be able to grab one of these bras on short notice, it’s definitely worth investing in one for the holiday season coming up. A good wire-free bra will help make airport security less of a hassle, but also is great for lounging around in during your travels.
I’m so happy to see that Freya is making both nursing and non-nursing versions of their wire-free bras, and that they’re making them in fun prints and colors. This bra is cute, modern, and provides wire-free support for traveling or lounging. I love the leopard print pattern on it as well.
Lots of wire-free bras tend to fall into the black and white category, but this bra makes up for what it lacks in style with stellar support. The wider straps and fuller cups will keep everything in place without causing pain or chafing if you have an extra long day at the airport.
Glamorise is a new brand to me, but i love the color and look of this bra. The lace details are so feminine and pretty! The wider straps will provide support, and the full cup gives nice coverage without looking too matronly.
Goddess is a great plus size bra line that offers more wire-free options than other brands. This bra is practical and supportive, and also goes up to a band size of 48.
