Personally, I don't particularly care if people can see my VPL (a.k.a. visible panty line) or bra indentations. However, if you’re looking to avoid it, the best seamless bras that won't show up underneath clothing can help. These bras manage to stay supportive despite no seams and silky materials, so to help narrow down the options, I got in touch with an expert.

The Expert

Carly Landig is a fashion stylist and creative consultant with over 15 years of experience. For 10 years, Landig served as the director of brand marketing at Who What Wear and oversaw creative and styling at Nordstrom. Now, she offers brand development, creative direction, and fashion styling for clients from New York to LA.

What To Look For In The Best Seamless Bras

“When brands market their product as seamless, they are just referring to how the actual material is constructed together through molded cups and bonded or laser-cut edges,” Landig wrote in an e-mail to Bustle. That said, according to Landig, strap sliders, back clasps, and bulky materials may also show through clothing, so “it’s best to have a few options in your undergarment arsenal — such as stick-on, thin straps, front clasped, and metal or plastic-free options.”

If you’re looking for a more traditional option, T-shirt bras are a popular style when it comes to invisibility underneath tight or lighter-colored clothing. A silky fabric also makes the bra more invisible, since it’ll glide against (rather than snag on) materials. The review section is going to be your best friend here, because if a bra offers loads of support and comfort inside the shirt as well as a sleek, smooth look outside of it, you better believe that people are going to rave about it.

The Best Bra For Light Support

If you’re looking for light support, this Jockey T-Shirts cami bralette is a favorite of Carina Finn, Associate Commerce Editor at BDG: “I was initially skeptical about whether or not this bra would fit me, since I have a small band/large cup size, but there’s something magical in the way this fabric stretches and supports. The microfiber is so soft, and there are literally no seams — so there’s nothing to dig in. It’s my favorite bra for lounging, and to wear under camis and sundresses in the summer.” It also comes in a huge range of colors and has adjustable straps.

One reviewer wrote: “This is a very comfortable bra. The very light padding ensures a smooth line under delicate or semi sheer fabrics.”

Available sizes: Small — X-Large


The One If You Want To Feel Like You’re Going Braless

“I was skeptical about the concept of a ‘seamless’ bra but I'm so glad I took a chance on this Calvin Klein one,” wrote Danielle Kraese, Commerce Editor at BDG. “It somehow feels like being fully supported and going braless at the same time. AND the material is incredibly soft! It does run a tad small, so I would probably size up for my next one. But there will definitely be a next one!”

Landig also sings the collection’s praises: “Calvin Klein’s Invisibles collection is iconic. Known for the softest, wire-free options that slip on with ease, you’ll always find it in a stylist’s kit,” Landig wrote. “They also have a slew of options for various necklines. The removable pads are also a huge plus.” While it doesn’t have any wires, it still manages to support with its longline silhouette, stretchy fabric, wide V-neck straps, and removable pads.

One reviewer wrote: “I have 3 Calvin Klein invisible bralettes and they are all I wear. These bras are perfection! I bought my first won 2+ years ago and it’s still holding up.”

Available sizes: X-Small — 2X


The Most Comfortable Option For All-Day Wear

The Playtex 18 Hour smoothing bra is just about as seamless as you can get. With wireless contour cups, wide straps, and a leotard back that stretches to hug your body, it evenly distributes the weight so that your chest is supported, but positively nothing hurts. It’s also undetectable underneath T-shirts, blouses, and dresses. This one has earned over 20,000 reviews on Amazon, and according to many, it’s one of the only bras that’s comfortable enough “to wear all day.”

One reviewer wrote: “No underwire, no tags, no skinny straps. What it does have is support, comfort, seamless cups, wide straps that don't dig into your shoulders. I tried 4 different brand name bras before I found these. I will never buy any other brand name bra again.”

Available sizes: 36B — 46DDD


The Bra That Supports Without Seams Or Wires

Wireless and seamless, this Warner’s Blissful Benefits lightly lined bra gives you lightweight stretch and a minimized look that's virtually undetectable under your clothes. “I love a wireless option if your top or dress is especially hugging, but you need extra support!” Landig wrote. “The side-smoothing, wide band hugs in all the right places for a sleek look.” It’s earned an overall 4.5-star rating from more than 9,000 customers, and even larger cups say it offers adequate structure without pinching or underwire.

One reviewer wrote: “My new favorite. The most comfortable bra I’ve ever put on. So comfortable and seamless it feels invisible.”

Available sizes: Small — XX-Large


A Seamless Underwire Bra With Pretty Lace

Everyone who knows me knows that I'm in love with lace, but it’s not always the most comfortable or the most invisible. Luckily, this Bali Lace ‘N Smooth underwire bra offers it without discomfort and without itching. The cups are seamless and lined with sheer material for structure, while the straps are wide and front-adjustable for convenience. Get it in your choice of 15 colors.

One reviewer wrote: “I was looking for a comfortable bra with no lining. This one is soft and fits well. Had to order more colors.”

Available sizes: 32D — 42DD


A Full-Coverage Bra With A Seamless Lining

The Playtex Active Lifestyle bra is a wonderful combination of sporty and supportive that reviewers say is "perfect for any occasion." The seamless lining fabric is lightweight and moisture-wicking to keep you dry during workouts; the cups are smooth and seamless for effortless wear underneath any clothing, while the cushioned no-slip straps deliver sensational support from work to play.

One reviewer wrote: “This is my overall favorite bra for comfort and support. I am size fits beautifully and the straps do not dig in. The seamless cups give me the sleek appearance I desire under knit tops. Love the bra!”

Available sizes: 36B — 46DDD


A Wire-Free Bra With Full Coverage

Whether they're wearing it for workouts, work, around the house, or even sleep, reviewers cannot stop raving about this Hanes wireless bra. The four-way stretch fabric moves with your body, and the fuller coverage cups and back allow for a smooth look under clothes with the benefit of a V-neck shape for lower shirts. Best of all, people actually feel supported — even bigger chests.

One reviewer wrote: “I prioritize comfort these days, and this is very comfy. It's very lightweight and cool. It also looks nice under clothes. I feel adequately supported for a very comfy bra, and I do not feel like it gives me the uniboob look.”

Available sizes: Small — 3X-Large


The Best Seamless Minimizer Bra

If you're looking to minimize your bust size one full cup, the C Magnifique minimizer bra is the way to do it. Seamless underwire cups are double-layered to maintain shape, but thin to give you a smooth look under clothing, and the leotard U-back shape keeps the straps up and comfortable all day long.

One reviewer wrote: “This is my favorite everyday bra! I always try to buy bras that are less expensive, but always end up returning them and coming back to this one. Fact- a good bra makes every outfit look better, so it’s worth the investment!! Especially true if you have larger breasts.”

Available sizes: 32D — 44F


This Expert-Recommended Bra With A Scalloped Edge

“This is the ultimate comfort bra,” Landig wrote about the b.tempt'd'd wire-free bra. “It’s so stretchy it acts like a second skin. The scallop edges ensure a seamless appearance, but what I love most are the removable pads and adjustable straps.” The fabric is made from a blend of nylon and spandex, the pads are constructed from smooth foam, and you can crisscross the straps for even more support.

One reviewer wrote: “This bra is fantastic and I can't recommend it enough. It feels as though you aren't wearing one and provides support without constraint. A definite 'must-have' item.”

Available sizes: X-Small — XX-Large


Also Great: These Expert-Recommended Pasties

“For my small-chested friends, your best bet is just a pasty,” Landig wrote before recommending these Goldfarm nipple covers. “I never leave for a styling job without a box of these in my kit. You can be wearing the slinkiest of silks and these will not show through. That is my definition of 360-degree seamless!” They come in your choice of beige or black. The self-adhesive back stays put despite sweat and movement, while the non-woven fabric is durable and breathable.

One reviewer wrote: “Great product for the money. I have been using these for several years now. They adhere nicely, don't irritate my skin, stay on until I need them to come off, then peel off fairly easily.”
