I honestly can’t remember when bralettes made their way into this world, but the bra gods reigned down and saved us all when they did. If you’re not someone that has experienced the discomfort of a bra with underwire, you just won’t get how amazing bralettes are. And if you’re still wearing an uncomfortable bra, you no longer need to be looking forward to the end of the day when you can let the girls just breathe. Since I basically live in these bralettes, I can share a few favorites!
A dream to get on and off
These bralettes from Abercrombie are a dream to get on and off. They clasp in the front so you just have to pull the hook through the loop and you’re good to go. Since the back doesn’t have a clasp it looks flawless if it peeks through a top you’re wearing. The lace in the front as well as the double straps add some interest to a top too if they are showing.
They are lightly padded and feel like they provide a good amount of support. I do have a smaller chest so the amount of support could be different for you. The reviews for this bralette are overall positive, but some women with larger chests did say that they wished there was more support. I say when in doubt read the reviews!!
Lots of lace means added interest
First of all let’s talk for a sec about Aerie. If you are ever having a tough shopping day and feel like nothing feels good or looks good. Go to Aerie and try a few things on in their dressing rooms. The mirrors are covered in sticky notes written by other women boosting your confidence and hyping you up. I don’t walk out of that store feeling an ounce bad about myself and that’s just beautiful.
Now onto this bralette, it’s a lot of lace but that means it adds so much interest to a dress or a top it peeks out of it. I paired it with this dress that has a lower cut neckline, and it’s the perfect addition that is comfortable but super pretty. A regular bra just wouldn’t work under this.
This bralette has light padding and clasps in the back like a normal bra would. The straps in the back can be clasped together to convert to a racerback. Aerie has so many sales basically daily, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this bralette is on sale as we speak!
I own three of the Abercrombie bralettes and 2 of the Aerie ones and I definitely plan on trying more! I’m all about comfort and pretty things and when those two things are combined, I’m living my best life.
