Once you go bralette, you never go back. It's the perfect piece of lingerie because it fuses style, support and comfort, holding everything in place without the need for underwire or excessive padding. It's also one of the few bra styles that actually double as tops, making them a little more fun to wear — and create outfits around.
The possibilities of styling when wearing a bralette are seemingly infinite. Slip one on under a sheer tank, letting only the lace accents peek through; wear a bralette as a top, underneath a blazer, cardigan sweater, or bomber jacket; or style it with a high-waisted skirt or trousers for a crop top effect.
And when you're lounging inside the house and don't want to go totally bra-free, it's the most comfortable option to turn to for support. Whether worn under a sweatshirt or styled by itself with leggings, the bralette is a worthy alternative to those less-than-comfortable push-up bras now collecting dust in your underwear drawer.
Ahead, find the 12 best bralettes you’re going to want to add to your wardrobe this season and beyond. From soft cotton to frilly lace, you’re going to have a hard time not shopping them all.
