The Bralette – A Lingerie Staple For All Bust Sizes
A lingerie staple for women of all shapes, sizes, and tastes, the bralette has quickly become one of the most popular styles this spring. While the trend started in the world of indie labels, it’s no surprise that major brands have jumped on board: The minimalist brassieres are easier to make than more intricate styles, and there’s less guesswork involved in calculating how many sizes to order (as compared to t-shirt bras, which have been a mainstay for over 50 years).
In addition to being a great fit for A – C cup gals, bralettes also work well for women with larger busts. They’re the perfect alternative to a push up bra for wide set boobs, or for those with sagging nipples. The lack of stiff padding and underwire allows your boobs to breathe, and lets their natural beauty shine through.
The best part is that a bralette can be as casual or as fancy as you like. You can wear a silky smooth one to bed, or slip it under a loose top when you’re running errands in town. And if you want to go for a more polished look, just throw on a white button-down and heels.
But one common misconception about the style is that it’s only for small-busted ladies. While it does a fabulous job supporting A-B cups, I’ve been seeing girls with C and D cups rocking them all over the place. And if you’re a plus-size gal, don’t worry—brands are now offering lace bralettes in up to 3X (approximately a triple D) and are working on adding even more plus size options.bamboo bralette
