Bras are a funny thing. You need them (especially if you are big busted like myself), you want comfort and support…and you tend to be a bit picky about the way they look under clothes and exposed…even if hardly anyone else sees them. That’s quite a tall order. A brand that’s been around forever, but not in my lingerie drawer until recently is Playtex. Remember those Playtex 18 Hour bra commercials? I always wondered what happened the remaining 6 hours of the day. Anyway, after trying a few styles myself, I can attest they are certainly worth a second look.
Playtex 18 Hour Ultimate Lift & Support Wirefree Bra
I was hesitant about trying a wire-free bra because I always thought I needed the support of wires. If you wear a DD like myself, wearing a wireless bra is usually like going braless – which is not a great idea if you plan to leave the house. However, after wearing this bra a few times I am a convert. The bra features Playtex’s TruSUPPORT® bra design which ensures a comfortable 4-way support, thanks to: (1) higher sides for coverage; (2) fuller cups for natural shape; (3) wider straps for all-day ease; and (4) smoother back for stability.
The result is an all-day comfy fit. I call this the perfect weekend bra!

Playtex Secrets Body Revelation Underwire Bra with Lace Trim
The slightest hint of lace makes this bra ultra sexy and the way it lifts and shapes makes your look naturally contoured in clothes. There is a bit of foam padding, which I usually try to avoid since I don’t need the extra padding, but in this case it prevents show-through. The low-cut of the bra makes it the perfect choice under deep v-necks and the wide straps work perfectly with more open necklines. This bra also includes Playtex’s TruSUPPORT design for essential 4-way support.

Playtex Secrets Signature Florals® Underwire Bra with Gel Straps
This bra was brought back by Playtex due to popular demand and now I see why! This was my favorite by far. In fact, I have hardly had them off since I received them. This bra features gel-cushioned straps for no slipping and all day comfort. There is also hidden side support for natural shaping. The cups are lace covered, but super soft and ever so lightly lined so there is no added bulk. The underwires are fabric covered so you don’t even realize you are wearing a wire bra and the sides have a bit of stretch for a flexible fit. It is honestly one of the most comfortable bras I have ever worn and will continue to be in my lingerie drawer as long as Playtex continues to make it! Oh, and my husband likes it too (as in it’s not ugly).
