If the pandemic had any silver linings, one of them was surely the fact that we all threw off the shackles of office-appropriate clothing and embraced comfort dressing.

Which is something we're still doing, with many of us enjoying a 'hybrid' working life and WFH for part of the week.

That means, of course, that comfort can still be a big part of our lives - and that includes our underwear choices. Namely bras. It seems that en masse, we've abandoned uncomfortable, underwired styles after nearly two years of either not wearing a bra at all, or wearing our sports bras.

Hence the huge surge in popularity of the 'bralette' - which are super comfortable, non-wired and non-padded.

M&S have led the way, naturally, with various styles that women are buying multiples of (like this full-cup non-wired bra).

But it's time to meet the newest member of the brand's bralette gang: the Flexifit™ Non-Wired Bralette. And customers are going crazy for it, with one women loving hers so much she reckons she now has around 30.

And at only £12, we can see the appeal of multiple purchasing.

Why we rate it

It comes in sizes 8-22 with cup sizes from A-C and D-E available and three colours - opaline (a soft nude); white and black. It does up at the back with hook and eye, and has adjustable straps.

The bralette is all about looking smooth under clothing, feeling light and comfortable to wear, but with the confidence of still getting some support, too. The smart Flexifit™ technology means the bra moves with you so you don't feel restricted.

Another plus point is the small hook on the straps - this allows you to wear the bralette in multiple ways. (As an example, you can hook the straps together if you have a top or dress with a racer-style back). M&S really thinks of everything.

If you're between sizes, then simply search "bra fit" on the M&S website to get an online fitting. Or you can also book one in-store.

What the reviews say

Customers are praising Flexifit™ Non-Wired Bralette for its comfort factor and price point. And as with lots of M&S products, it's so good, that they're buying multiple: one woman in recovery from breast cancer now owns five and another admits to having a collection of 30!
