Finding the right bra is like finding a significant other—you spend so much time with them, it needs to be a good fit. But tracking down the right bra isn't always easy, in part due to the sheer variety of options out there. Plus, it takes time to figure out whether you feel like your comfiest, sexiest, most supported self in an underwire bra, a balconette bra, a bralette, a molded cup bra, or in no bra at all (we're team free the nip, especially when WFH).
