Say goodbye to fussy clasps and uncomfortable underwire!

We know, we know: You hate bras. We get it and we’re right there with you, which is why we’ve previously listed some comfy bras you can shop in Manila right now—no one deserves to have to imprison their girls in a tight, restricting, er, boob cage. Now, if you’re all about that #FreeTheNipple movement, then by all means we support you, but we understand that for some, there may be an internal conflict. Going bra-less sure feels better, but the eyes of society are forever trained on our bodies (unfortunately) and not everyone is willing to let it all hang out at work, family gatherings, or outside of the home in general. So here’s a compromise: Bra tops a.k.a. tanks and camisoles with built-in padding and bust support. These handy tops do away with the need to begrudgingly strap on a bra, but keep your girls covered up and in place—the best of both worlds! If you’re ready to stock up on as many as your closet can hold, we list some basic bra tops you can shop below.
