On Trial: Harper Wilde’s The Flex Strapless Bra
Tester: Caitlyn Fitzpatrick, avoider of spaghetti straps
The Brief: Experience has taught me that the term “comfortable strapless bra” is an oxymoron. There’s no way that style bra could be something that I would want to wear. But due to cute clothing sans sleeves, it’s a necessary evil sometimes. I never thought I’d see the day that I’d change my mind on this topic, but here we are!
I hate strapless bras. No, scratch that. I loathe strapless bras. In my 10 years of trying to find one that is supportive, comfortable, and doesn’t slip every 5 seconds, I’ve failed miserably. It’s come to the point where I avoid strapless shirts and spaghetti straps, because I wasn’t willing to be that uncomfortable. Now my world has changed and my wardrobe has opened up, thanks to Harper Wilde.
The bra brand has a range of different styles, depending on your needs. The one I’m talking about here is The Flex Strapless Bra. It has an underwire and light padding, but don’t let either deter you if you’re not into all that. Those features are what keeps you lifted without straps — and you won’t notice that they’re there.
I’ve tried various brands over the years to find the perfect strapless bra that will support my D-cups. I would imagine that having a smaller chest would make strapless-bra-hunting less time-consuming, but, alas, I’ve been blessed and cursed. Ladies with bigger chests understand the struggle of finding a strapless bra that holds you up, doesn’t constantly fall, and isn’t so tight under your boobs that it leaves a mark. Up until now, I didn’t think achieving all three was possible, but going hours and hours wearing The Flex in a sleeveless dress has convinced me otherwise.
I could tell you all day long that The Flex is a must-have bra, and it might mean nothing to you. But maybe you’ll be swayed by the 6,000 people who were on the waiting list for this exact bra at one point. More than 80% of people who reviewed the bra gave it 5 stars, citing what I told you: It’s comfortable and stays in place.
An unfortunate aspect of having breasts is how much money it costs to keep them supported and in place. If you’ve ever rolled your eyes at the nearly triple-digit number that graced a price tag or sifted through a clearance bin at Victoria Secret, you understand the woes of draining your wallet for a good bra. That’s why when I was looking up the price for the Harper Wilde strapless bra for this article, it reinforced why I had to write it. The Flex is only $40 (!!!).
You can get my favorite strapless bra on Harper Wilde in beige, tan, brown, and black. It comes in sizes from 32A to 42F, and in my experience, it fits true to your typical bra size. The company also allows you to choose any three bras to try at home for free for 7 days, so you can find the perfect fit for you.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, The Flex comes with straps. So if it becomes your new go-to — and trust me, it will — you can wear it with any outfit. OK, spaghetti straps, we can be friends now.
Closing Argument: If you’ve been looking for a strapless bra that actually does what it says it will, look no further! Whether you have A-cups or F-cups, you want to be comfortable and supported, and I can’t say enough good things about The Flex.
