The first thing many of us want to do when we get home after a long day is tear off our bra – and even more so in the summertime. Wearing a heavy bra when it’s hot outside can cause a lot of discomfort and even some skin irritation. Sweating under a less breathable bra for extended periods of time can lead to chafing or breakouts.
Light, breathable clothes are a go-to in the summer to help keep you cool. You should look for the same qualities in your bras. To make summer bra shopping a breeze, I’ve compiled a list of some of the best bras for summer (all available at HerRoom). These bras aren’t just comfortable for the warmer weather months – they’re beautiful and flattering, too!
Make the most of your summer with these bra styles:
1. Unlined Underwire Bra
If you want ultimate breathability without having to sacrifice lift, shape, and support, an unlined underwire bra is the perfect choice for you. These are constructed just like regular lined and padded underwire bras, but without the extra bulk in the cups.
2. Low-Back Bralette
A good bralette is a summertime must-have for when you’re layering it with loose and revealing tops. My advice is to find something you’ll love to show off (especially in low-back or completely backless styles). Get light, casual support from a bralette with eye-catching details like lace trim a playful back design.

4. Sheer Bra
Not only is a sheer bra a sexy option, but it can also be extra comfortable and supportive. After all, the less material, the cooler you’ll feel in the summertime! This underwire sheer bra comes in several colors and gives you just the right amount of coverage and lift.
5. Cotton Bralette
For those leisurely days when you’re running errands or lounging around the house (or even sleeping, for that matter), a light and soft cotton bralette is the perfect choice.
6. Strapless Bra
Some of the hottest summer top styles have trickier tops, whether they be strapless, crisscross back, off-the-shoulder, or one-shouldered. That makes a good strapless bra a must-have for your lingerie wardrobe.
7. Soft Underwire Bra
With soft materials and lace side detail, this underwire bra features lightly lined (and not padded) molded cups with all the shaping and lift of a normal underwire bra.

8. Cotton Underwire Bra
Created for comfort, this underwire bra is made with a super fine-gauge Pima cotton blend. The soft and cool mercerized cotton has some stretch that feels great against your skin and fits to your shape.
9. Moisture-Wicking Convertible Bra
This smooth, wirefree bra is a cool and comfortable choice with pretty accents. It features moisture-wicking x-temp technology that adjusts to your body’s temperature and keeps you dry when you sweat.
10. Plunge Bra
If you’re wearing a low-cut top, you need a bra that will give you the support you need without peeking out through your neckline. This plunge bra does all that and more!
