Cute Bras You Can Wear As Tops
Amazon
Updated: 
Originally Published: 

In my opinion, the best type of clothing is a versatile piece of clothing. Yeah, that includes cardigans that go with every outfit and pants you can wear for both work and play, but a subcategory of clothing that often gets overlooked? Cute bras you can wear as tops, and luckily, Amazon is filled with them. Before you start shopping, however, you should know that merely being "cute" isn't enough; a bra-top hybrid should also be supportive, comfortable, and easy to wear.

Since it's taking the place of both your bra and your shirt, a great bralette will offer support without being uncomfortable. This may come in the form of wires, compression fabric, or padding — maybe even a combination of them all. Next, make sure your bra of choice is comfortable. (Personally, I don't waste my time with clothing unless it's as comfy as it is fashionable.) Breathable fabrics, soft, stretchy materials, adjustable straps, and wire-free designs are all comfort-friendly features to consider.

Last but not least, think about convenience. Yes, this includes machine-washability and things like removable pads — but it also includes style-related factors that determine how well the bra works with your existing wardrobe: Does its long-line design make it easier to wear with high-waisted skirts and pants? Does it come in a color that complements a lot of your favorite pieces? Will it layer well if you do decide to put a shirt over it?

These 23 cute bras meet all the aforementioned criteria and more, which is why obsessed reviewers wear them both under tops and instead of them.

1

This Longline Bra For Your Next Workout Or Lounging

Because of its longline silhouette and moisture-wicking fabric, this seamless bralette is one of the best picks for your low-impact workout. Its wire-free design offers support in the form of removable pads, and a wide bottom band, and its adjustable spaghetti straps won't slip off your shoulders. This pick is also convertible, so you can swap it from a straight back to a criss-cross design.

  • Available sizes: Large - X-Large

One reviewer wrote: “Most comfortable bra ever! I have small boobs and I just want something that’s gonna hold them up and keep them comfy.. and this bra does it! It’s like I’m not wearing anything. I own 5 of them!”

2

A $16 High-Neck Halter With A Cutout Design

Most bralettes are simple in the front and more ornate in the back — but the Mae high-neck bralette is eye-catching just about everywhere, making it great as a top. The front features a detailed cutout design with a halter top, while the back has double criss-cross straps that add both style and support. Best of all, it comes in just about any color you could want and is less than $20 to boot.

  • Available sizes: X-Small - X-Large

One reviewer wrote: “Absolutely beautiful, nice amount of stretch so you can actually put it on, it's soft, and a great addition to my limited wardrobe.”

This Best-Selling Top That's Part Tank, Part Bra

This padded top is halfway between a bra and a tank, and it's available in over a dozen solid colors. Yes, the polyester-spandex fabric is soft and comfortable, like your favorite cami — but because it has removable pads for support, you don't have to worry about wearing a bra underneath it. Currently, it’s a number-one best-seller with more than 40,000 reviews and an overall rating of 4.5 stars.

  • Available sizes: Small - XX-Large

One reviewer wrote: “I LOVE this top! I love it so much that I bought 5 other colors. [...] It’s perfect for working out, running errands, or to dress up for a night out! The material is so soft and stretchy. I was very impressed!”

A Gorgeous Lace Bralette In 18 Colors

From Free People comes this gorgeous bralette. Its lace detailing is made primarily from cotton, and it is stretchy in the back to ensure a secure, comfortable fit. Get it in your choice of 18 colors, including black, coral, and white. Finally, all four spaghetti straps are adjustable.

  • Available sizes: X-Small - X-Large

One reviewer wrote: “Really cute. [...] Perfect for a night out. Can be worn alone or under a cami. Fits great and made well. Feel like just enough support for something like this.”

5

This Wire-Free Cami With Strappy Accents

Even though it's wire-free, this strappy cami still offers a surprising amount of support in the form of structured seams, thick fabric, and a wide band. Reviewers have called it their "best clothing purchase ever on Amazon" — and if you like the front, you should see the back, which has six individual straps that come together in a halter-like design. Choose between white or black.

  • Available sizes: 1X - 3X

One reviewer wrote: “I love this bralette. Was surprised at the quality and structure of it. Typically when I see bralettes in larger sizes (2x and 3x) I end up disappointed with the lack of support and the sizes running really small. Not the case here.”

6

This Longline Sports Bra With 7,000+ Reviews

It looks like a standard workout crop from the front, but in the back, the bands split into a criss-crossing weave. Reviewers also love it because of the silky-cool material, the removable pads, and the various color and pattern options. No wonder the CRZ YOGA sports bra has a 4.6-star rating after over 7,000 reviews.

  • Available sizes: X-Small - X-Large

One reviewer wrote: “I've gotten 4-5 of these bras in solid colors already. It's my new favorite gym top. The fabric is smooth, soft and thick. [...] I love the length of it. It hits right at my natural waist so it works as a top on its own.”

7

The Best Bra For High-Impact Workouts

Most fashionable sports bras can't really stand up to high-impact workouts — but this one from nine bull is specifically designed for them. It has a full-coverage longline shape, removable pads, an extra-wide band, and is made from a stretchy, shape-retaining, moisture-wicking fabric. As a result, it can handle running, boxing, and sports, but looks great thanks to its keyhole cut-out and racerback style.

  • Available sizes: Small - XX-Large

One reviewer wrote: “I do high fitness 4-5 days a week. [...] The fit is snug and they don’t move! Love this bra!”

8

This Holographic Number With An Under-Bust Cutout

Offered in tons of great designs (from trippy tie-dye to reflective chain), this iHeartRaves bralette is well-structured despite the minimal coverage. It has a cut-out directly under the bust, and its straps are fully adjustable. According to reviewers, it’s a great pick for raves, festivals, cosplay, dancewear, Halloween costumes, or parties.

  • Available sizes: X-Small - 3X

One reviewer wrote: “Love this. It fits perfectly and stays in place. Looks adorable too!”

9

This Scoop Sports Bra That's A Great Alternative To Lululemon

This sports bra does things a little differently with its low-cut front and its criss-cross back. Still, it’s double-layered and extremely stretchy for support during light-impact movement. (It also comes in over 20 colors and prints.) Despite its low price tag, dozens of reviewers have compared the cut and quality to a particular bra from Lululemon, “but much cheaper.”

  • Available sizes: X-Small - X-Large

One reviewer wrote: “This sports bra is an excellent alternative to the Lululemon Free to Be sports bra. [...] I will definitely be purchasing more colors in the future.”

10

This Thick-Ribbed Tank From Free People

Another highly rated favorite from Free People, this ribbed tank is thick enough that it’s “very comfortable without a bra,” even though it doesn’t have any built-in padding. The 5% spandex makes it stretchy, while the rayon-nylon fabric blend means it's soft and breathable, too. Get it in several colors, including black, white, rose, moss, sky, or navy.

  • Available sizes: XS/S - Medium-Large

One reviewer wrote: “Fave new go-to tank top! This tank is perfect for dressing up or down. Wear with athletic shorts or a skirt and heels.”

11

A One-Shoulder Sports Bra For A Sleek Look

This is not your average sports bra: This single-shoulder design with a cutout is a sleek alternative. Still, thanks to the stretchy nylon-spandex fabric and removable cups, you can wear it for errands, workouts, and nights out. Whatever the activity, it’s a number-one best-seller in novelty sports bras because it’s stylish, yet supportive.

  • Available sizes: Small - XX-Large

One reviewer wrote: “I love this sports bra so much ever since I got it! I wear it by itself in the gym for lifting and cardio because there's no way I'm hiding this beautiful number under a shirt.”

12

A Dramatic Deep-Plunge Lace Bralette

Stretchy, breathable, and stylish, this YIANNA lace bralette has extra-thick straps and a deep-plunge neckline (both in the front and back). As a result, you can wear it under tricky V-neck tops, or wear it all on its own. It comes in four colors.

  • Available sizes: Small - XX-Large

One reviewer wrote: “Very well-made and super soft. I am ordering all the colors since this is exactly what I need - cozy, light support that’s sexy.”

13

A Long Workout Tank With A Built-In Padded Bra

This longline sports bra has thick, built-in cups that are removable, so you don't have to worry about an additional bra. It comes in five colors and is designed with wide shoulder straps and a strappy criss-cross back. Since it’s longer than most other bras, it’s easy to wear with leggings, jeans, high-waisted skirts — you name it.

  • Available sizes: Small - XX-Large

One reviewer wrote: “This bra is a great dupe for the Lulu Lemon sports bras. The quality is great and and the material is breathable.”

14

This Tommy Hilfiger Bralette With A 4.4-Star Rating

This particular color option has the iconic logo across the longline band, but you can also grab the Tommy Hilfiger seamless bra in other designs, including a velvet-like texture. Most of them have adjustable straps and plenty of stretch, so they're great for workouts or everyday wear. The halter neckline and seamless knit are also both comfortable and cute.

  • Available sizes: Small - X-Large

One reviewer wrote: “Love the adjustable straps. This bra has everything that I was looking for in a sports bra. Straps, some padding, racer back and a good color choice. Plus, it is comfortable and true to size.”

15

A Full-Coverage Sports Bra With More Support

A full-coverage bra can still be unique. This longline sports bra, for example, has a higher neckline than many and a mid-rib band, but its removable padding, flatlock stitching, and mesh detailing on the back make it a stylish and supportive option. You can get it in five different colors, both bright and neutral.

  • Available sizes: X-Small - X-Large

One reviewer wrote: “I can not say enough about this bra! [...] It holds everything in perfectly. It's breathable. Extra supportive. I don't want to take it off it's just so comfortable.”

16

This Lace Racerback That's Supportive & Comfortable

Instead of digging wires and chafing fabric, this lacy bra is built for comfort thanks to its soft fabric and racerback design. Still, the stitched cups and stretchy material have reviewers reporting that despite the lack of underwire, it can still lift and support. And, needless to say, it's so pretty, you won't want to hide it.

  • Available sizes: 0-2 - 14

One reviewer wrote: “Free people is one of my favorite brands. It is usually pretty pricy, but this bralette is so reasonably priced! I was excited to see this brand on Amazon.”

17

The Best Value For Bra-Top Hybrids

Looking for value? Look no further than this four-pack from Blulu, which breaks down to less than $7 a top. Despite the affordability factor, each one is made from seamless polyester-spandex and has a supportive, removable pad. Choose between five color sets.

  • Available sizes: Small/Medium - X-Large/XX-Large

One reviewer wrote: “I've bought a second set of these. They are perfect for me and I have a lot up top yet they keep me supported. I'll be buying another eventually as well. Excellent value for money, I want to have one for every day of the week for whatever color I need.”

18

This Bralette With A Halter Neckline

The halter neckline and narrow cut of this sports bra gives it a unique edginess that makes it versatile enough to wear to the gym or out on the town. The design also has removable pads and wide shoulder straps so you can wear it as a bra, a top, or something in between. Get it in seven shades.

  • Available sizes: Small - XX-Large

One reviewer wrote: “This top is SO CUTE and I love it with literally anything, Jeans, leggings, etc. It IS padded, so that's comfortable, and it fits pretty good.”

19

This Dressy Workout Cami That's Less Than $10 Each

The extra-thin straps on this Amilia cami set make them look dressier than your average workout tank, so many reviewers have opted to pair them with jeans, shorts, and skirts. Each one is double-layered for additional support, and the 100% polyester material is soft and cooling. The best news? You get two for $19 and they even come in a few patterns, including tie-dye and animal print.

  • Available sizes: Small - X-Large

One reviewer wrote: “I am something of a crop top aficionado-- I wear them basically every day. These are my favorite basic crop tops. Stretchy, but tight enough to be fine wearing with no bra.”

20

A Cooling Crop Top With A Gorgeous Back

Since it's made from 95% rayon and 5% spandex, reviewers write that this ROMWE cami feels “smooth and will keep you cool.” Needless to say, it’s a great pick for hot weather or those who overheat, but it’s also a stylish addition to your wardrobe because of the unique criss-cross design in the back. If you don't love the black, you can get it in tons of other colors and patterns.

  • Available sizes: X-Small - X-Large

One reviewer wrote: “All I can say is WOW. [...] I bought the black one and the light green one! I love wearing them with my denim skirts to stay cool outside.”

21

A Stretchy, Strapless, & Secure Tube Top

You can pick up this MixMatchy tube top cami in just about any color, and since it's double-layered and stretchy, you can wear it without or in place of a bra. It differs from every other top on this list due to its fully strapless design, but according to reviewers, it still manages to stay put without the need for constant readjusting.

  • Available sizes: Small - Large

One reviewer wrote: “I have been looking for a tube top that had a bra support feature that would also color coordinate with my favorite maxi skirt. I am so glad I found it!”

22

This Longline Lace Cami With Endless Outfit Possibilities

Reviewers have worn this BRABIC lace cami under a sheer top, with a cardigan, with skinny jeans, and with high-waisted skirts. Thanks to the longline silhouette and padded triangle cups, the possibilities are virtually endless. (It even has adjustable straps to ensure a customized fit.) It comes in two colors.

  • Available sizes: Small - XX-Large

One reviewer wrote: “I've been hunting for a good cami top to sleep and lounge in. This one is cute AND is super comfortable. The best part is that the built-in support is functional and not too padded. I'm going to get one in every color!”

23

This Unique Butterfly-Back Bra

If you don't love the look (or the feel) of excessive straps, you still have options: This icyzone sports bra, for example, keeps things interesting with its criss-cross butterfly back. That said, because the bands are thick and the material is silky and moisture-wicking, it's a minimal-chafe option. It even has a breathable mesh lining and supportive pads.

  • Available sizes: Small - XX-Large

One reviewer wrote: “This bra is comfortable, supportive, and allows me to breathe. It doesn't dig in but at the same time, I can go for a jog comfortable with everything supported with minimal movement.”
