It’s comfy, sexy, and totally affordable.
Finding the perfect bra is a rare occurrence on par with meeting your soulmate or scoring an amazing apartment in New York City. Every brand seems to have different standard cup sizes and, because every body is unique, it can seem as though getting a custom-made bra is the only way to procure an undergarment that fits just right.
So when I dubiously ordered a bra online from Rihanna’s inclusive lingerie brand Savage X Fenty after an ad popped up on my Instagram feed last year, I wasn’t expecting to discover my own personal holy grail of bras—but that’s exactly what happened.
I ordered the Savage X Fenty Unlined Microfiber Demi Cup Bra in a size 34C shortly after Rihanna launched her venture in May 2018, hoping for the best but preparing to make a hasty return or exchange for another size. When it arrived, I tried it on immediately and was astounded by how comfortably it fit and how good I felt about myself when I looked in the mirror. It was like a second skin.
Since then, the unlined nylon and elastane bra has become my go-to lingerie, whether I’m lounging around the house in a T-shirt, heading to the office, or hitting the town for a night out. It features adjustable straps, rose gold hardware on the hook and eye closures, and a deep cup neckline that’s ideal for pairing with plunging V-neck tops.
Although it boasts a simple design, the understated lace details and smooth material give the bra a sleek look that makes me feel wildly confident. The bra is equal parts comfy and sexy thanks to the unpadded underwire cups, which provide support while remaining true to my body’s shape and form. Plus, the nylon material feels soft and luxe on my skin, even after an entire day of wear.
Needless to say, it’s about as close to the perfect bra as I think I’ll ever get. So when I noticed that some of the more delicate fabric lining the cup was starting to tear—likely because I’ve recently started sending my laundry to a laundromat and have little control over whether my delicates actually make it to the delicate cycle—I was devastated.
Like love or a rent-controlled apartment, when you find something so rare and wonderful, you do whatever it takes to hold on to it forever. Luckily, the Savage X Fenty line is now available on Amazon (prior to September 2019, it was exclusively available on the official Savage X website), making it easier than ever to stock up on the lingerie.
After rushing to my computer, I was relieved to see that my precious unlined microfiber demi cup bra is still in stock, with prices starting at just $22. You can be sure my cart is full of the ultra-comfy brasserie in every shade that comes in my size, and that I’ll be hand-washing my delicates from now on.
Head to Amazon to try the bra out for yourself. I dare you to order just one color.
