We’re about to break a fashion rule… well maybe it’s only a fashion rule our moms made up. We’re flashing our underwear on purpose. Say hello to the bralette, a lace sports bra hybrid that is made for showing off, even if it’s just a hint.
The key characteristics of a bralette:
- No underwire and padding
- Lace or at least a lace trim
- Pulls over your head (although there are some varieties that feature the usual hook and eye clasp)
- Totally comfortable
The last point has us sold and we’re ready to ditch our barely there T-shirt bras and start showing our underwear off!
Ways to wear the bralette:
Wear it over a fitted T-shirt or (if you’re feeling really bold) pull a Kendall and wear it as a top.
Give your classic oversized T-shirt a lace trim or undo an extra button of your shirt and let your bralette show along your neckline.
Wear your bralette with a loose-fit tank so that a subtle lace detail peeks out the side. (This trend is all about suggestion.)
Not really feeling the lace? We get it. (The bralette is referred to as the athleisure of unmentionables for a reason!)
