Have you ever been so in love that you text your friends about it first thing in the morning? It’s not something that happens to me all too often, but after wearing one particular bralette for 24 hours straight, I had to tell them — and now, I’m telling the internet.

“Good morning, I just found The One. No, not a man (lol), but a bra I actually love wearing,” was the aforementioned text, which went out at 8 a.m. A few seconds later, my phone lit up with a stream of emoji, like the overused but straight-to-the-point thumbs up and the scream face, followed by a resounding, “Tell us about it!”

The bra that was worthy of an 8 a.m. text was none other than Boody Body’s EcoWear Shaper Bralette, a sleek, seam-free style made from a skin-friendly and cooling bamboo viscose. If the name sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because Instagram queen Emily Ratajkowski has repeatedly worn it both on the streets and at home, a true testament to its versatility. I’ve only rocked it at home, but I would definitely throw a blazer over it and wear it EmRata-style for my next lunch out.

The seam-free design is one reason I fell in love with it from the moment I took it out of its (eco-friendly) packaging, but the fact that it had none of those annoying things that poke and pinch, like wires, clasps, hooks, or fasteners, is what really sealed the deal.

Then came the wear test. If I’m being honest, I haven’t really put on a bra during most of quarantine, so the Boody bralette was the first in a long time. One hour passed, and I forgot I even had it on — that’s how comfy and soft the bamboo-viscose fabric was. Hour four is when my regular underwire bra really starts to bother me, but on hour four of the Boody bralette, I still had nothing to complain about. So I decided to really take it to its limits and kept it on overnight.

I woke up at 7:45 a.m. and couldn’t believe how well I slept in a bra. The super soft material kept me cool all night (I’m usually a hot sleeper), and the bralette was comfier than the usual tank tops I wear to bed because absolutely nothing dug into my skin — not even the straps.

Now you know how the story ends, right? At 8 a.m. I waxed poetic about the Boody bra to my friends and promptly sent them the link to buy it, too. And yes, they love it just as much as me, as well as the countless of Amazon shoppers who’ve sung its praise.

“I HATE BRAS... But I really like this one,” wrote one Amazon customer. “SOFT, smooth, breathable! It's a lighter support, (one layer), which works fine for me… No plastic on these straps! And the straps are wide enough to be supportive and comfortable. I also like that the bra dips low enough that it doesn't show with a lower neckline.”

If you’re ready to test-drive a bra that will actually make you like bras again, shop the Boody bra below. You won’t be disappointed.
