Now that winter is a distant memory, it's time to shed the heavy layers and opt for lighter, brighter pieces, your undergarments included! Lightweight bras or bralettes are perfect for lazy, breezy spring days in the hammock as you read your favorite new book. Think a little less sweat, a little less constraint, and a whole lot of color. Bralettes can be paired with denim shorts on a sunny day, under a light white t-shirt for a pop of color, or subbed out for your everyday bra. Not only are they comfortable as can be, bra-like tops are also on the rise for celebrities. Fans of the look include Kylie Jenner, Chrissy Teigen, Emma Watson, and Cara Delevingne.
While finding a perfect-fitting bra can be super challenging, these lighter bras are easier to fit. Most come in three standard sizes that work for a wide range of body shapes and cup sizes, opposed to the standard range of the alphabet you find in specialty stores with conventional fittings. Bras don’t have to be a constraining contraption, and showing your bra straps has never been more high fashion. Styling them can create an ultra-feminine look or a more bohemian, festival-ready style.
