People across the UK have been asked by the prime minister to stay home, where possible, in a bid to prevent COVID-19 from spreading.

Naturally, most of us housebound folks have relaxed our dress code and swapped workwear for cosy loungewear sets and joggers.

But it’s not just our outerwear we’ve switched up: according to Figleaves, women are ditching their uncomfortable lingerie and opting to don wireless bras and crop tops.

The British lingerie brand has seen a 40% increase in customers buying unwired bras over the last few weeks.

There are plenty of more comfortable alternatives available: bralettes, crop tops, sports bras and memory foam designs are just some options.

T-shirt bras are also popular as they tend to be seamless as well as supportive. Some are lined or padded for extra coverage, too.
