Supportive Bralettes: How To Find Yours

The bralette — demure, delicate, and effortless. They’ve been coming into style aesthetically, but there’s also plenty of comfort-based reasons to let them slip into your wardrobe. Women are tired of wearing the  classic underwire bras that push, pinch and confine breasts in an unnatural and uncomfortable way. But how can you pull off the light lingerie look if you need a bra that’s actually supportive? Does a supportive bralette actually exist?

WHAT IS A BRALETTE?

Screen Shot 2016-02-01 at 5.17.58 PMFirst, the difference between a bralette and your regular old bra: a bralette is a lightweight bra that has no wires or molded cups. With the lack of these features, women have built up many misconceptions about these garments. You might look at a bralette and think they are totally impractical. But the truth of the matter is, they can be just as supportive and practical as your classic bra.

MORNING LINGERIE STYLE

Bralettes with longline silhouettes or accents down the ribcage are perfect for pairing with breezy tops with cutouts or dresses with low armholes for an easy-going day look. We selected a pastel palette and contrasted soft, delicate silk with rough and tumble denim.

AFTERNOON LINGERIE STYLE

Even if you’re doing a lot of walking or seeing the sights, pretty accents can femme up an otherwise utilitarian base garment like the shirtdress. Look for one in a light and breezy material, then dress up with layers of show off lace underneath. Delicate, but comfortable and practical.

NIGHT OUT lingerie style

A little edge after dusk? We think yes. Pairing sheer layers over this flirty demi cup bralette makes it a perfect 10 for nighttime looks. Nude look layers of creamy mesh and black lace are alluring, while still covering you up. We love a sheer cami for helping us take pretty lingerie out of the bedroom and into our outfits.
