What is a bralette?

Bralettes tend to be non-wired and give lighter support than a regular bra, but we also offer wired styles that give the look of a bralette but with the support those of us blessed with big boobs look for.

The majority of bralettes have an element of the “unstructured” about them – at least in terms of look - but they range from non-wired to underwired and from cotton crop tops to lovely lace styles. Bralettes come in lots of guises, and in all shapes and sizes, so you’ll be sure to find one that works well for you.

How are you supposed to wear bralettes?

Whether you’re looking for a supportive bralette or something more relaxed, there’s plenty of options so Bravissimo girls can embrace the bralette trend. With lots of non-wired and wired styles to choose from that offer the coverage and support that those of us with big boobs look for, whether you’re looking for an athleisure-inspired crop top or a pretty lace style, you can choose the right bralette for you based on whatever makes you feel confident and amazing. The only thing to decide is whether you want to rock them as outerwear or keep them under wraps just for you!

Are bralettes good for large breasts?

Bravissimo girls can wear bralettes too! Depending on what level of support you’re looking for, there’s a different bralette option for you that supports those of us blessed with bigger boobs! If it’s for everyday wear, then you could try a wired style that gives the look of a bralette (but doesn’t compromise on any of the support). If it’s for lounging around the house, then there’s plenty of comfortable non-wired bralette styles to choose from too – we love to give you options, Bravissimo girls!

Bralettes such as Fancies or Lyzy are great for lounging in as they have lighter support, are non-wired and are comfortable too, so they’re a good option for when you’re relaxing at home. Zara has proven to be a super popular style thanks to its comfort, support and pretty lace details (and it even has a normal bra fastening at the back so it’s easy to get into!). We also have wired bralettes such as Maya and Sofia which offer the look of a bralette but have hidden cups, so you have all the support, shape and uplift that us Bravissimo girls look for – hooray!

Why not browse all our bralette styles and see which one works best for you? If you would like any more help finding the size that works best for you, please do get in touch as we love to help!

:"I am a bralette devotee!"

As a 30E I have often had to sacrifice perfect fit for the shape they give. Generally, I love the thinner straps, natural shape they provide under clothes.

Rachel, Bravissimo Girl

:Love this bralette!

I like light support in bed or around the house but don't want to always wear a bra, this works perfectly

So, should I ditch my bra for a bralette?
