What is a bralette?
You would have probably heard of the term "bralette" at least once. This category of lingerie has gained popularity in recent years among the comfort conscious, especially so with the perpetual work from home. A bralette is a non-wired bra made with soft fabrics, has no or minimal padding, keeps the natural shape of the boobs, and provides ultimate comfort. Bralettes are akin to sports bras or bras without underwire and provide a bit of coverage. Like underwire bras, bralettes also have adjustable straps. You can find more about the difference between bras and bralettes here.
How To Style Bralettes In Hot Weather
Bralette under a Sheer Shirt
Simple and chic, a bralette underneath a see-through shirt is all you need for a modern, understated style. Don’t be afraid to be creative by mixing in a little colour or wearing an embroidered sheer top for that added texture and contrast. Accessorize it with sunglasses or a hat, and you’re all set for the season!
Bralette with a Blazer
Pairing a bralette with a blazer is a great way to bring a casual outfit up a notch. Try wearing a lace bralette with a little more coverage to keep it subtle and elegant. For those who do not want to show too much skin, pair it with high-waisted pants or leggings. Depending on how you want to style your bralette, this style can be paired with blazers in all colours and worn just about anywhere!
