I've seen a suggestion for tieing up tomatoes extra-gently by cutting "slings" from discarded supermarket plastic bags.

Cut them to form 2-3" wide circles. These can be used as loops and slings to "cradle" stems and fruits.

I wondered about stems, leaves and fruit laying against plastic" doesn't it hold water and encourage mold or rot? But that author seemed to think not.
