The 19 best bras of 2023
“A bra should be made from good-quality components,” said Annette Smith, brand director for Montelle Intimates. “Good-quality elastic, foam, mesh and fabric will ensure your bra lasts for many months still doing the job it was meant to do.”
When it comes to finding a soft fabric Jessica told us, “Personally, I think there is nothing better than a super soft microfiber, modal or cotton spandex bra. They look smooth and feel incredibly comfortable. But, honestly, technology is so amazing now that you can have the most incredible lace bra that has a finish on it to make it feel just as soft and yummy against the skin.” Annette agreed, saying, “Lace bras are not itchy if they are a good quality.”
Just remember if you are investing in a high-quality bra, you need to properly take care of it to keep its shape and softness. "Throwing them in the washer and (God forbid) dryer, and using your typical clothing soap will ruin the elastic, shape, and material making it harsh and brittle and dented," said Kimmay.
