Simple bra alternatives?

Are there any alternatives to bras? Bonus points for historical or non-American bosom support solutions.

I've worn regular bras in sizes 36D and 34DD to moderate success, but lately I've been going without because, for the most part, I find it more comfortable. (I do usually wear a tight-fitting tank top under my shirts).
But I know it looks a little funny, and there are times when I wish I had just a little bit of extra support.
I'm not looking for a sports bra (I'd prefer to avoid uniboob). Ideally, I'd like to find something simple (wrapping a piece of cloth around my chest in some particular way, perhaps?) and inexpensive.
