Being on the smaller end of the cup scale I’ve began to fall in love with the way my clothes should fit without the assistance of the padded, push-up, wired bras forced upon me by well-meaning Victoria’s Secret salespeople. I’d decided the time spent tugging at underwire and readjusting boobs gone astray simply wasn’t worth the nominal cleavage these bras afforded.
Society (or at least, my workplace) requires the use of foundational garments when venturing outside the home, so going commando on top is not an option. This is when I discovered the bralette. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a major obsession with a lacy little undergarment. Admittedly an item best suited for smaller-chested gals, usually perfectly suited to adorably peek out from beneath your outfit. Goodbye underwire, hello (sexy) comfort!
One way to wear a bralette is under a loose tank top or a sheer shirt. It’s a fun, pretty way to show off some skin without leaving a “regular” bra fully visible. If you’re feeling more bold, you can wear a bralette the same way you would wear a crop top. Still confused? Here are outfit ideas as inspiration and if you’re feeling inspired get shopping on top bralettes I picked out under $50!
