Comfortable Bras for Long Flights

Comfortable Bras for Long Flights

Our tips to making a long-haul flight more bearable

Jetting off this winter and already dreading the never-ending uncomfortable flight? We feel your pain! Sitting in the same confined space for 10 hours plus is never enjoyable, especially if you are dressed in the wrong attire. This year we propose that you swap your gorgeous extra padded, underwire bra for a more comfortable, breathable option.

We want to help you pick a bra that is so comfortable you'll forget that you are even wearing it. Turn an unbearable plane flight into a seemingly shorter and pain free trip, and before you know it you will be landing in your exotic destination ready for an amazing well-deserved holiday.

Our top 5 picks to wear on the plane

Sitting on a plane isn’t as luxurious as these airlines make it out to be. Stress less about looking immaculate and instead focus on wearing something that is beautifully soft, supportive and extremely comfortable. We have put together a short list of comfy, plane-appropriate options for you to pick from….


1. Pure Lime Seamless Crop - sizes 6-16

This amazing multipurpose seam free crop top is the perfect go-to bra for a long-haul flight. In a soft stretchy fabric, this crop will give you just enough support whilst remaining exceptionally comfortable for long periods of time. The ultimate bra for sitting in the same seat for hours on end!

A bit more about this bra..
  •          No irritating seams
  •          Support for light impact activities
  •          Tactel fabric allows genuine regulation of body temperature

2. Anita Active Extreme Control Sports Bra - sizes 8-20, D-FF cups

This incredibly comfortable sports style bra is a great alternative for those who need more support than a crop. This style has a little bit of extra support and shaping and is made with breathable fabric that moulds to your body.

3. Prima Donna Madison Full Cup Bra - sizes 10-22, D-H cups

Wanting to wear an underwired bra on the plane but worried about being uncomfortable? Well the Prima Donna Madison Full Cup Bra is a great supportive bra that features softer and more flexible wires allowing for amazing comfort.

5. Tani 3/4 Sleeve Scoop Neck Top - sizes 10-18 

The Tani range offers a variety of clothing pieces that are ideal for a long-haul flight. Made from renewable Beechwood (96% Micro Modal, 4% Lycra), the 3/4 Sleeve Scoop Neck top feels incredibly soft and light and is the perfect layering piece to wear on a plane.

 A bit more about this bra..

  •          Perfect for sensitive skin

      It\'s a shame that the top bra is no longer sold by Brava, and the other one I was interested in is only available in XS, S or L which may indicate that it will no longer be sold once the old stock has run out. It would be great if this article could be kept up to date... I am always interested in finding a comfortable bra for long haul flights or just weekend wear.
