They say nothing in life is certain except death, taxes...and bras that will forever annoy us with their rib-cage-pinching, underwire-jabbing ways. But no more. Here, 12 great bras without a trace of push-up padding or sharp hardware.

The Best Lace
Lightly lined with scalloped lace, featuring a little stretch. Pretty and practical. Where to get it.

The Best Seamless
Stretch cotton means softness for days. Plus: No risk of nip slips. Where to get it.

The Best (Barely) Push-Up
Editor tested and approved: Unlined mesh and a half-cup demi style, this baby gives just enough oomph while barely clinging on. And that underwire? You won't even notice it. Trust. Where to get it.

The Best Strapless
Want a comfy strapless that won't slip down? Steer clear of push-up ones and seek out minimizers. Where to get it.

The Best for Sporty Girls
Looks like sports bra. Acts like a sports bra. Doesn't feel like a sports bra. Where to get it.

The Best for "Sporty" Girls
Mesh: It's breathable, supportive and made for athletes. But it's also perfect for Netflix binging. Where to get it.

Who wouldn't want a little stretch tulle and silk satin in her life? Where to get it.
