Bralettes: are they for fit, fashion, or both?

An important question: what actually is a Bralette?

A bralette is a style of bra that is less structured than an underwired design and most often doesn’t have underwires. If you’re looking for complete comfort and a flexible fit, a bralette could be the way to go. Bralettes are generally designed with current fashion trends as their highlight and can make a great ‘underwear as outerwear’ look. Some styles are effortlessly striking popping out under a sheer button-down shirt.

If you like strong forward projection and separation, then a bralette style probably isn’t for you. You are likely to feel as if you aren’t supported enough. But think about it this way, we do have different shoes at home – some more technically designed and structured than others depending on what their purpose is. Why not think of your bralette as your comfy slippers, or your carefree jandals?!
