Favorites Lately: Comfiest Wireless Bras (Pregnancy & Nursing Friendly)

Barely Zero Bra Thin Strap in Cinnamon Taste vs. Classic Strap c/o. code Jean for 20% off // Denim sz 24, hems cut

Those who follow along on IG know I’ve been on a mission to revamp my undergarment drawer, swapping out my old stretched out underwear and structured bras to make room for ONLY the comfiest pieces that can worn all day and night. I’ve tried a bunch of styles thanks to your recommendations, and wanted to share some from a new-to-me brand that I’ve been seriously impressed by! 

For today’s post I’m partnering with Neiwai (Mandarin meaning “inside & out”), an Asian brand that recently became available in the US. My family members in Asia ranging from my younger cousin to older aunts love their products, so I’m stoked we can now get them here too! They gave me code Jean for 20% off, and offer free U.S. shipping over $50 and free returns. Heads Up: Their 2021 products currently ship from Asia and take an estimated 3 weeks, while their 2020 style ships from the U.S. and takes ~ 1 week.

Barely Zero Bra & Underwear

One Size Seamless Bras

This is their extremely comfy and unique “one size” design that stretches to fit and support your body through weight fluctuations, even through pregnancy and postpartum! It c
omes in two different strap styles: Classic (wider strap) or Spaghetti (thin adjustable strap).

After trying these out for a good amount of time, I can vouch that both are comfy enough to wear all day long and even sleep in. You’ll probably want at least one of each style – the Spaghetti is great for wearing under tanks, but you can’t beat the seamless comfort and wider strap support of the Classic for wearing under everything else! Both are designed with no clasp or closure, and slip on over your head. While I don’t think the “one size” will work perfectly for everyone, I’ve had friends who range from a traditional 32A to 36D try this bra on with only great feedback so far, but from reader feedback these may feel too big / padding too full for those with smaller busts. 

A few other features:

  • Smooth laser-cut style fabric that’s stretchy in all directions
  • Super lightweight – you’ll forget you’re wearing a bra
  • Has removable lightly padded shaped cups
  • Bonus: not a nursing bra, but due to the stretch it’s easy for me to nurse in simply by lifting up the bottom of the bra, or by pulling the top part down if pads are removed.

Share & Save with friends or family (Under $30 per set)

The entire Barely Zero collection has a buy more, save more bundling option when you purchase multiple bras or underwear with a bra. Uniquely, these bundles can work well for splitting with friends or family to try, since the bras and underwear are one size fits all! My MIL saw mine, was intrigued, and happily got a set of the Classic.

The best value for their Classic strap bra is their 3 pack bundle with 3 sets of bras + seamless briefs. To get the best value for the newer Spaghetti strap bra, you can purchase the 3-pack bra + 3-pack brief which average out to about $30 per set after discounts!

100% recycled, gift-able packaging for their newer 2021 wireless bra that can easily be reused to hold trinkets.

Other items to check out:
  • Pure Comfort Soft Modal Bra (runs small): For a petite-friendly, more traditional wireless bra with a little structure to it and removable padding. Pls consult their size chart, as sizing runs small compared to US sizes. Size XS in this bra is actually a 28B / 30A, a Small in this bra is labeled 32A on the tag, and Medium is labeled 34B.
  • Thermal underwear set – fluid and smooth feeling, and not too long! Size S fits well on me.

Thank you to NEIWAI for partnering on this post.

    I can’t thank you enough for this recommendation. The barely zero bra is a dream- like nothing I have ever tried! I cannot get over the level of support with such comfort, not to mention the fit. It is crazy that it is one size for all but it fits me perfect (32DD). Best purchase in a long time!

    I’m really excited to try the bras, and attempted to use the “JEAN” discount code – it gave me 20% off but is still saying I need to pay $13.90 for shipping. I thought the code was supposed to be for free shipping as well – anyone else have this issue? I live in California FWIW. Thanks!!

      Hi Sophie, sorry for the confusion on this! My discount code is for 20% off and at the time I wrote this blog post Neiwai was offering free shipping for orders of $50+. I just checked and it looks like they’ve changed it to be free ship on orders $99+ but orders under that threshold should have a flat $6.95 shipping charge.

      I’ll go ahead and update that section of the blog, thanks for bringing it to my attention!

    I bought both the flat strap and adjustable strap styles of the bra. I love the smoothness and comfort but found that the flat straps were too long. I gave them to my bustier daughter and she loves them! These are more house bras for me though. When I’m active and moving a lot, the cups bunch because I don’t quite fill them out. If there was a touch less shape to them the cups would be perfect. Thanks for the recommendation, Jean!

    Hi Jean,

    I bought a pair each of the classic and spaghetti strap bras and I’m converted. They truly feel like nothing is there and the straps stay on my shoulders. I’m so thrilled w/ these that I bought my mom several pairs and considering buying these for other friends and family members. I just want to thank you for all your recommendations over the years! Although I’m not petite, I always find myself coming to your blogs/IG for recs regarding fashion, cooking, and baby/toddler ideas! I really appreciate what you do for this community of women and moms.

      Hi Jean,

      I was really excited to order these bras, but after I ordered them 3 weeks ago I realized that they are shipping from China and take forever! I just wanted to put this information out there in case any other readers are looking to buy these bras. I am anxiously awaiting mine.

    Thank you for the code, Jean! I’m 7 months pregnant and the bra and undies are so incredibly comfortable- I’m excited that these will probably fit post partum, too. When you nursed with these bras, did you need to wear nursing pads? Curious if you had any issues with milk leakage affecting the material of the bra in any way.
    I’m assuming nipple creams wouldn’t be a good idea with this bra!

      Congratulations!! My first weeks postpartum when milk came in definitely had leakage all over bras, PJs and tops etc which is all totally normal. So sticking a bamboo nursing pad inside never hurts!

    Hi Jean, these bras are not meant for petite and small breast size. I purchased the spaghetti strap and wireless bras and they were way too big, thick pads. I was confused with the ordering and thought I could pick a small size but these bras comes in only one size. Not sure how I can return them.

      Hi Thanh, I’m sorry to hear that these weren’t a good fit for you. While these styles fit several different body types I recognize they won’t fit every body. The brand offers free returns, you can start your return on this page under the ‘return policy’ section.

    Hi Jean,
    I ordered the spaghetti strap style and it just arrived. I can’t believe how comfortable it is but I’m having a hard time getting used to my silhouette with the padding. I’m very small chested (32A ) and feeling it’s a little more padding than I like on my small frame. Do you have any recommendations for removable bra pads that might work for these bras? I would love to order more because I love the comfort and fit it’s just giving me a little more curve than I’m looking for 🙂
    Thank you!

      Hi Kathy, I’m afraid I don’t have any specific suggestions for thinner removable pads. You could check your local fabric store, like Joann’s, or Target and Amazon both carry several options as well – just none that I’ve personally tried. If you’re comfortable, you could also try wearing it without the pads which I’ve been doing occasionally!

    Thanks for the code, Jean! I bought a set for myself and ended up liking them so much that I bought a set for my mother. In case it’s helpful for others, I’m 32DDD and these provide enough support for working from home and lounging but I haven’t worn them outside yet. The briefs were also cut a tad bit lower than I thought. I’m ok with them but my 72 year old mother didn’t like them. Also, I think if your hips are larger than 40” these might be a bit too tight.

    Just received a Classic (last year’s) style and cannot thank you enough for the JEAN code! I even wrote to Neiwai to mention your blog and thank them for making these.

    Eagerly waiting to see if I love the newer one with a thin strap, too. I almost didn’t order anything because the photos of the cups — worried that even with padding removed, it would look unnatural on my tiny chest. (I’m 28 to 30B.) But I didn’t want a one size to completely flatten me, either, or show off my uneven sides without pads. It is as comfy as you said & it looks looks surprisingly natural. The pads are flattering and I rarely wear padded bras. Ok, I rarely wear bras if I can get away with it. But now I even imagine lounging with just a Classic one as a top on a warm day around the house. Curious if anyone has tried the lacier bras or swimsuits?

      The spaghetti strap ones fold down from the top a little easier so I’ve been mostly wearing that one while nursing, but both have been pretty easy to lift up from the bottom.

      Hi Christina, apologies for my delayed reply! I’ve tried both and, with the exception of the spaghetti strap and new colors, the fabric feels the same. The packaging is nicer for the 2021 collection and comes in a reusable recycled box, but if you’re interested in the classic strap version the 2020 version should work just fine!

    I added the holiday bundle for the Classic strap bra and then removed one of the sets in my cart – the $35 per set price didn’t change and I was able to check out using the code for a total of $56 shipped for two sets. (The price per set did go back up to $37.80 when I tried removing two sets.)

      I have Gap body bras which are a totally different feel (not nearly as stretchy, but also a wireless soft bra), with the padding is built in.

      The recommendation is to hand wash and air dry and that will probably be best for the longevity of any bra. However, I have washed these on a gentle cycle in a mesh bag with the padding still in and laid flat to dry and it’s been fine. But note that I strongly recommend not machine drying anything delicate!

        After reading your post, I tried these bras and loved their comfort so much that I have replaced all my bras with these! I have been washing them in a mesh bag with no issues until recently a padding in one of them came out from the washer with a deep crease/dent in the middle. The crease shows through clothes. Did you experience anything like this? Any advice on fixing it? Thanks in advance!

          Hi Julia, I believe it will depend on which collection you ordered from. The 2021 spaghetti strap bra for instance ships directly from their fulfillment center in China via an international carrier and takes about 2-3 weeks, as mentioned on the item page. But if you ordered the 2020 collection, I received my order via USPS!

          Can’t wait to hear how you like them when they arrive!
