My earliest memories of bra shopping include an intensely-lit dressing room that distorted my reflection, an intimidating attendant with yards of measuring tape, and the most uncomfortable wired bra that dug into all the wrong places. I left that store with my self-confidence on the floor and a punctured lung (OK not literally, but you get my point). I spent pretty much the rest of my teenage years dreading bras. It wasn’t until college that I discovered the magic of bralettes and ditched wired bras for good. Eight years and two whole kids later, bralettes are still my #1 go-to.
However, so many things have changed since becoming a mother and my body is one of them. My old bralettes don’t support my post-baby boobs now that I’ve been breast feeding the last two years. The girlies just are not as “perky” as they used to be (RIP). Luckily there are brands like Harper Wilde that consider the various stages in a woman’s life when designing intimates.
At The Everymom, we have always strived to support moms and encourage the prioritization of their mental health. Therefore, we’re proud to introduce The Everymom x Harper Wilde Emotional Support Bra, a phrase which is accurate in every way possible.
Harper Wilde makes quality bras for every shape and size that are affordable and buttery smooth. They have a wide range of both wired and wireless bras that are so comfortable they feel like sweatpants for your boobs. This is why it was a no-brainer for The Everygirl Media Group to partner with Harper Wilde by collaborating on a bralette design that embodies our values effortlessly. At The Everymom, we have always strived to support moms and encourage the prioritization of their mental health. Therefore, we’re proud to introduce The Everymom x Harper Wilde Emotional Support Bra, a phrase which is accurate in every way possible. The best part is that 15 percent of the proceeds of this bralette will be donated to National Alliance on Mental Health, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. Our editors have taken our new bras out for a test ride, and spoiler alert: We’re all obsessed.
Once I tried on my Harper Wilde bra, I immediately knew it was the answer to my aforementioned problems. It’s incredibly soft and flattering and provides the perfect amount of support. I can wear it with any outfit, and my boobs stay in place without any spillage. It also doubles as a nursing bra, which is a huge plus for me. I’ve become used to wearing my nursing bras at night, and this Harper Wilde bralette is comfortable enough to sleep in, too! And any breast milk stains are easily washed out, which isn’t normally the case with my usual bralettes.
It’s a bra you can wear all day while working, running errands, or even while doing a light workout. The versatility is unmatched. Plus, our custom design is adorable and makes it feel even more special. The past couple years I’ve bounced between a 34B and a 36C, so I ordered a Large to give me more room, and the fit is a dream. Our other editors can’t stop raving about their bras either.
“The second I took this bra out of the package, I was in awe of how silky-smooth the material is. In fact, I was so excited that I changed into it immediately—and I’ll be honest, I basically haven’t taken it off since. I have a fairly large chest, so it’s really difficult to find bras that actually work for me. I’ve encountered very few that are comfortable, wearable for any occasion, and that fit correctly. And to find one that’s all of those things and also doesn’t look like I stole it from my grandma? Nearly impossible. That’s why I was shocked that this one checks all those boxes.

“I typically wear a size 36DD in bras, so based on the size chart, I’m wearing a size Large in this one. It fits me well, but because my bra ‘sister size’ would’ve put me in an XL, I’m between sizes. If you’re in the same boat, I would recommend going for the larger size for a little more coverage in the cups. Overall, this is 100 percent my new go-to. I’ll leave you with one note about just how comfortable this bra is: I’m getting ready for a trip that includes an 18-hour travel day, and I already know this is the bra I’ll be wearing.” –Jessica Welsh, Associate Commerce Editor
“One thing about me is I avoid underwire bras like the plague. There’s just something about them that makes my chest feel like it’s in jail and sends a shiver down my spine. I typically opt for sports bras and bralettes, and when I’m looking for one to add to my collection, here are my non-negotiables: It has to be stretchy yet supportive (I have a pretty busty chest for my frame, so I don’t love going braless), versatile for my fairly active lifestyle, and be made of material that I look forward to putting on. So imagine my surprise when I tried on this bralette from our collection with Harper Wilde and found that it checked all my boxes and then some.
“When I first took it out of the package, I was a little taken aback. That is going to fit on these? I held the buttery-soft bralette in my hands, and at first glance it did seem a bit small, but I continued on because the reviews on the site noted that the size chart was accurate (I got a Medium and am typically a 32DD). To my pleasant surprise, it effortlessly stretched over my body and fit me like a glove. It gives me a good amount of support without making me feel claustrophobic. I’ve accidentally worn it to bed twice now without noticing anything is even there and have even gotten through a whole 12-3-30 and a strength workout without realizing I forgot to swap it out for my athletic bra. If that’s not versatile, I don’t know what is.” –Ashley Selleke, Branded Content Editor for The Everygirl
