Meer somehow figured out how to make wireless bras that work in ways others don’t. Their innovative structure and all-around shape makes these the bras you’ll want to wear in any setting. The two boob-having members of The Inventory team got to check them out.
Erica: Meer is attempting to finally break the mold of the uni-boob-creating, suffocating sports bras. I was sent a a couple of their bras to try out and I was impressed by the softness of the fabric and the generously-adjustable band.
Unlike traditional sports bras, a couple of their bras are bikini-shaped, which do make them a little more attractive than your usual boxy sports bras.
One of those triangle-shaped bras is my favorite, the O.G. Sport. I wear it lounging around the house and I don’t think people can tell I’m not wearing a “real” underwire bra. I wasn’t expecting to like the fit of the High Cut, but it’s surprisingly supportive and would be good to wear to a yoga class since the extra fabric would keep the girls in during any downward dogs or headstands.
The bras I tried all had removable cups to hide any nipping, but I took them out because they tend to slide out of place, especially in the High Cut. But, not a deal-breaker since it’s such an easy problem to solve.
Overall, these bras are great if you are looking for something to keep everything secure, without feeling like you’re locked in.
Jillian: I’m always looking for bras that function like real bras but don’t feel like one. Bralettes are a godsend for those of us that can wear them. But the implications of wearing a non-structure bra (no support, lots of nipple action, sheerness) aren’t always worth the comfort. That’s where Meer came in.
After getting a couple styles to try on, I can say that these bras are pretty much the answer to my problems. The styles are like sexy sports bras, in thick fabric with cute designs and an innovative criss-cross back that provides all the support you could ask for, without the annoying wires.
Like Erica, the O.G. Sport is also my favorite. The shape is incredibly versatile under lots of tops, and it’s something I wear regularly while working around the house doing chores or just binge watching Kimmy Schmidt.
I will also agree with the cup issue. While I appreciate the removability of them, they tend to move around and cause dents in the material. Though, even without them, the material of the bra is thick enough to avoid any, uh, headlights.
These are my new go-to bra for days that I really don’t want to wear a bra, but probably should be.
