black bralette

It’s no secret that we love bralettes. After all, we recently released a lace bralette for C-G cups and have another very special one launching this fall. Bralettes are the perfect underlayer for your favorite outfits. We love that they’re wire-free and comfortable enough to wear all day long (we even sleep in our Adriana lace bralette!) But, every so often we’ll have a day when we don’t want to put on a bra. When we just want to go braless.

While you should feel totally empowered to go braless if you choose, here are six reasons to opt for a bralette when you’d rather go braless.

1.  You’re wearing a dress or top that isn’t structured.

Sometimes you can get away without wearing a bra when your dress or top is structured. But, what about when you want to wear a flowy, bohemian dress? Or a top with intricate cut-outs on the back? Bralettes are a great match for your summer dresses and tops. Most bralettes are designed to be shown off while still providing a little support and lift.

2.  You don’t feel comfortable going braless.

Don’t feel comfortable going braless? Try throwing on a pretty bralette. Bralettes offer lightweight support and shaping without any underwire. Plus, all cup sizes can wear bralettes.

3.  You’re wearing a sheer or transparent top.

Bralettes provide an extra layer of coverage under sheer tops and t-shirts. They add a modest layer under lace or sheer shirts, too. And, if you’re used to hiding your bralettes under your outfits, why not show them off a little?

4.  You’re going to work and can’t go braless.

Are your bras too uncomfortable to wear for eight hours? While we’d suggest shopping for new bras first, a bralette might be the best solution for support in the meantime. Opt for a seamless bralette in a neutral color and throw it under a work appropriate top. Easy!

5.  You need a bra that will keep up with your busy weekend schedule.

Getting ready for a busy weekend? If your weekends are filled with errands, family events, hangouts, date nights, and day trips, a bralette might be just what you need to stay cool and comfortable. Bralettes are versatile styles – they can be worn under an outfit during the day and on their own under a blazer or jacket for date night.

6.  You’re traveling.

While it might seem tempting to go braless while traveling, bralettes are a much better choice. Wireless bralettes can help you make it through TSA and a long flight without wanting to rip your bra off. Plus, they’re practical, easy, and comfortable – perfect for travel.

Final tips

Ready to try something new? Bralettes are one of the best alternatives to underwire bras. We love that they provide support and comfort without adding bulk to our cup sizes. If you normally wear a D cup or larger, you know how hard it is to find bralettes that check off all the boxes. We suggest trying out our Adriana bralette, which is designed with lined cups, stretch lace, wide adjustable straps, a J-hook to convert it into a racerback style, and a thick underband for extra support. Available in black, pearl white, and sky blue, this bralette is sure to be your new favorite!

Whether you’re shopping for new everyday bras or lingerie for a special occasion, it’s always a good idea to seek out a second opinion. We know how hard it is to find bras that fit well and feel good, especially when you’re doing it on your own. If you’ve ever felt unsure about your bra size or you just don’t know where to go to find good bras, it’s time to let a bra fitter help.

Many specialty lingerie boutiques offer bra fittings. Their expert bra fitters will take the pain and frustration out of bra shopping and do all the work for you. Even better, their product knowledge can save you time and money. Plus, they know where all of the best bras are hiding.

If you’ve struggled with finding bras in the right size, it’s time to make a change. Visit our specialty store locator to find a store near you and schedule an appointment.

Happy bra shopping!
