Whether you’re looking through Instagram, scrolling through TikTok or you’re watching your favourite YouTubers and reality shows, one item of clothing you’ve probably seen time and time again, is the bralette. And if you’re someone who is new to the fanfare around bralettes, you might be wondering – what’s all the fuss about?
This simple, highly versatile piece of clothing had humble beginnings during the pandemic and was the perfect comfortable alternative to wearing a traditional bra. These days however you’ll find celebrities, influencers and people just like you and me donning sexy bralettes, cute top bralettes and padded versions, all whilst enjoying the comfort and versatility of this stunning fashion essential.
In this post, we’ll take a look at the answer in closer detail and give you some interesting reasons why bralettes are definitely worth the hype.
1. Bralettes are Soft And Comfortable
There’s a reason that the bralette grew in popularity over the pandemic. These comfortable bras will offer you support but will also feel as though you’re wearing nothing at all. As the buttery, soft fabric moves with your body and conforms to the shape of your chest, you can enjoy the stretchiness of the breathable fabric, that offers your chest a lift, but with all-day comfort that you wouldn’t get from a traditional bra. As traditional bras often come with heavy pads and cups, uncomfortable underwires, thick, skin-cutting straps and bulky clasps, it’s easy to see why so many women opt for bralettes!
2. They Can Be Cute, Sexy, Sporty And Everything In Between
Traditional bras usually meant hiding them away and ensuring no one caught a glimpse. To have your bra straps on show can often ruin an outfit, and many women struggle to find the right bra for the right moment. With bralettes, you can choose a style to suit your mood with ease.
Whether you’re feeling playful and want to have a little of your bralette on show underneath an oversized top, or you’re looking for something sexy to wear underneath a new dress during date night, bralettes are designed with versatility in mind and can be worn in a variety of occasions and scenarios. There are no rules!
3. They Don’t Break the Bank
We all know that certain lingerie brands come with a high price tag. And unfortunately, if you opt for cheaper alternatives the quality of the product will go down in the lower price. But, when it comes to bralettes, these high-quality fashion items are much more accessible no matter what your budget might be. Not only that, you can pick up sexier styles, lace designs and even crochet bralettes for around the same price, so no matter what the occasion is you won’t be priced out.
4. Bralettes are Incredibly Flattering
Thanks to the wide range of styles and fits available, the bralette is a staple for so many women. Where bras can be restrictive and we may find ourselves choosing the same styles over and over, bralettes encourage us to step out of our comfort zones and try something different. No matter what style we choose, a good fit, support and a flattering silhouette are always guaranteed.
