You’ll forget you’re wearing it.

When it comes to bras, I’ve always subscribed to the notion that less is more. Thick padding and push-up features have never appealed to me (perhaps that’s why I’ve already waxed poetic about this unlined bra from Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty line). I’d much rather feel as if I’m wearing nothing at all, and that’s exactly what the Unlined Crochet Lace Bra from Lively is like.

Part of the brand’s new crochet lace collection, which garnered a waitlist of over 1,000 people, the unlined bra is equal parts comfy, sexy, and practical—the trifecta of bra characteristics. Its band and unlined cups are made of nylon and spandex, and there are delicate crochet details on the front. The seamless fit includes a deep V-cut perfect for pairing with a low-cut top.

I can’t stress how incredibly comfortable this bra really is. In fact, even after wearing it for hours, I remained completely unaware of it, a true testament to a well-fitting bra. But perhaps the most exciting element of this undergarment is that its strap adjusters are on the front of the bra rather than the back. This means you can freely tighten or loosen the straps while wearing the bra without pulling a muscle in your shoulder—something that I’ve never experienced in all my years of bra-wearing.

In addition to these game-changing front adjusters, the bra also includes a metal J-hook in the back to convert the style into a racerback. It’s another common bra feature that has the capability to leave you squirming and potentially straining muscles as you get dressed, but the high-quality hardware here makes that adjustment a breeze. When I tried the bra out for myself, I was able to both loosen the straps and fasten the J-hook without breaking a sweat.

Intrigued? I don’t blame you. The unlined bra comes in white, navy, and matte rose colors, and is available in sizes 32A to 36DDD and 38DD. Pick your favorite and stock your lingerie drawer with a comfortable bra that’s as cute as it is functional.
