Beat The Heat: 7 Breezy Bralettes For Summer in Singapore

Planning for your next beach party or summer vacation? Look no further, Ashley Summer has your lingerie wardrobe sorted with airy bralettes and delicate loungewear to keep you cool during midsummer days. 

What is a Bralette?

You would have probably heard of the term "bralette" at least once. Bralettes tend to be more comfortable, lightweight, and forgiving than a conventional bra. A bralette is like a non-wired bra made with soft fabrics, has no or minimal padding, keeps the natural shape of the boobs, and provides ultimate comfort. Like underwire bras, bralettes also have adjustable straps. You can find more about the difference between bras and bralettes here

Breathable Bralettes For Your Summer 


If you’re looking for something classic and timeless, we’d recommend plunge bralettes. This style offers the right support with a low neckline, so you can wear it to that beach vacay or pair it with low-cut tops and dresses. The slim-fit cut of the plunge bralette is also ideal if you love to show a little sexy “side boob”. Available in White and Cocoa Brown.

HARPER Bralette

As part of our Signature Push-Up cut (without the underwires), HARPER is a play on the modern-day bralette. Made with a flattering silhouette, soft laces, and all the romantic details you love, this style is a perfect combination of style and function. Pair it with a sheer top for a French chic look. Shop HARPER bralette in Black and White.

SANS Bralette

Our take on athleisure for style and comfort between the seasons. The SANS can be worn as a statement on its own or paired with athleisure outfits. Made with thick elastic straps, stretchy mesh, and removable padding, this style allows you to have fun in the sun without forgoing support. Opt for this in Cocoa Brown the perfect neutral for summer and beyond.

How To Style Bralettes in Summer

Bralette under a Sheer Shirt

A bralette underneath a see-through shirt is all you need for a French chic look. 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 an Oversized Shirt 

If you’re not comfortable wearing a bralette under a sheer shirt, consider pairing your bralette with an oversized shirt for a laidback, casual vibe. Alternatively, you may wish to wear a coloured bralette under a white shirt for a bolder, more edgy style. Pairing a bralette with 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. 

Bralette with Low Back Dresses

Beautiful and classic, this combination will never go out of style. Tip: choose soft and breathable fabrics so you won’t feel overwhelmed by the heat in Singapore.

Bralette with a Maxi Skirt

For those who do not want to show too much skin, pair it with high-waisted pants, skirt or leggings. Opt for a lace bralette with a high-waisted maxi skirt for your next staycation or picnic in the park!
