Harper Wilde Is The Brand to Solve All Your Bra-Related Problems

I haven’t worn a bra in four years. I mean, I’ve worn a bra, it just wasn’t a “real” bra (you know, the ones with the cups and the underwire and the padding). Instead, I’ve worn exclusively bralettes and I’ve loved every second of it. But I do feel like I’m missing out on something.

Mostly out of pure laziness, combined with the fact that I’m never able to find a bra that I like, I’ve resorted to wearing something that’s basically just a more stylish sports bra. I’ve never found a traditional bra that was comfortable (seriously, who ever thought underwire would be comfortable?), affordable (I don’t have $100 to spend on something nobody will ever see) and wasn’t cheetah printed or covered in bows. So consequently, I have an arsenal of bralettes that I wear every day.

I can’t even remember the last time I broke out my only “real” bra. Ands a result, I have absolutely zero clue what bra size I am, and have no desire to go into a store and be measured in order to find out.

I used to be pretty comfortable living in my blissful braless ignorance, but then entered Harper Wilde.

Basically the Warby Parker of bras, Harper Wilde takes all the discomfort and stress out of shopping for these dreaded boob-holders. For free, you can order three bras of your choice to try on in the comfort of your own home—so no awkward moments of being measured in department store dressing rooms. Similar to clothing subscription services, you keep what you love and send back what you don’t.

What’s even cooler than the service, though, are the bras themselves. Harper Wilde took all the complaints that women (especially the bra-averse ones like me) have about typical bras, like discomfort, confusing sizes and excessive frills, and did the exact opposite. They have three simple style options, The Base, The Boost and The Flex, and they’re made from the most comfortable fabric ever—they honestly feel like pillows for your boobs. And have some seriously amazing design elements, too (hello, front-adjustable straps).

I was lucky enough to be able to try some on for myself, and my whole perception of bras has changed. After trying all three styles, it was hard to pick a favorite. But if I had to choose just one, it would have to be The Base. It was so light and comfortable that I felt like I was wearing nothing, but still felt completely supported.

All my bra dreams have finally come true, and Harper Wilde has made every single one of my bra fears irrelevant.

  • I don’t have to try them on in the store

  • There’s no pokey or painful underwire

  • They feel like more of a pillow than a boob-cage

  • They adjust in the front so I don’t have to ask someone to help me (always awkward)

  • There’s no unnecessary bows or frills that show through clothes

  • They’re only $35

  • And they donate to The Girl Project, helping to give young women access to education (#LiftUpTheLadies)

If all that isn’t enough to change my bralette-dependent ways, I don’t know what will. But I’m pretty sure I’ve already been converted.
