Adding -ette to a word makes it instantly more casual and feminine, or so bralettes have us believing. Not only does the bralette provide more comfort and coverage than a bra, it’s also an intimate that you don’t have to struggle hiding. Where a traditional bra strap showing is a wardrobe malfunction, the gorgeous trim of a lace bralette peeking out from your off-the-shoulder top is right on-trend.
Lace and eyelet details on bralettes increase the personality of your backless, halter or wide-neck tops instead of locking you into a constant struggle to hide. Go for something colorful with a coral or yellow style under an oversized tee to make a casual outfit pop. Pick a white or black bralette to wear under a low back shirt for a peak of neutral detail.
From the strappy bralette to the racerback, bralettes provide oh-so-pretty support more comfortably than their wired, structured sisters. They’re a fashion choice almost too good to be true. Once you go bralette, you’ll never go back.
