Bralettes are all the rage, with interest in the style rising in recent years as women prioritized comfort and natural appearance over more structured traditional bra styles. Casual enough for lounging yet supportive enough to wear out, a well designed bralette lets you choose whether to show it off or have it disappear.
What Sets Bralettes Apart?
Typically wirefree, unpadded and seamless, what bralettes may lack in structure they make up for in comfort. But True&Co believes you can have both comfort and support, along with a wide range of style options in our full bralette lineup.
Bralettes and Support
For support without sacrificing comfort, True&Co bralettes are designed with a wirefree channel that lifts breasts up to one full inch. Our softest fabric, buttery smooth True Body microfiber in a heavier weight furthers the support of styles such as the True Body Lift Scoop Neck bra.
Padding in Bralettes
To avoid adding heft, bralettes usually eschew padding, though we include removable pads in many True&Co styles so you can customize your fit and nipple coverage, minimizing show through if desired. If you prefer lightly lined cups, choose a style like our Madison Lace Bralette which combines with stretch lace to offer light support.
The trendier side of bralettes includes styles meant for showing off, like a lacy halter strap peeking out or a longline that serves as a crop top. Mesh and lace details at the sides and/or back such as our True Body Lift Mesh Triangle bra and True Body Triangle Lace Racerback bra add their own element of style to loose tank tops and backless tops and dresses. While it used to be a challenge to find a bra for these types of dresses, the trend towards bralettes that are meant to be seen allows you to customize your style and comfort.
Best Bralettes for Different Cup Sizes?
As consumer interest has increased, the bralette style has evolved from training bra types that only worked for smaller cup sizes. Newer designs mean this style trend isn’t limited to those with smaller chests as many True&Co bralettes are designed specifically for fuller cup (DD+) and plus size (up to 42DDD).
Bralettes for over D Cups and Plus Size
With two pronged sizing, you’ll find your perfect fit by first matching your band and cup size to the range of XS-2X, then choose a range of either A-D cup or DD-DDD cup. True&Co full cup styles offer additional coverage based on breast tissue mass across band sizes while our plus size offering addresses specific concerns such as lift via a wirefree channel and reinforced seams.
Soft and smoothing, True Body microfiber is also supportive, making it the ideal material for bralette construction. Stretch lace and mesh details are both functional and beautiful, moving with you and increasing breathability for all day comfort.
Seamless and Wireless Bralettes
The foundation of the bralette’s claim to comfort is its lack of wires and seams. True&Co styles are made to maintain stretch and shape, even with everyday wear so you can go ahead and make it your go-to. Most bralettes in our lineup pull over with ease, offering a seamless back under tighter tops and dresses.
Our Best Bralettes
It’s truly hard to pick a favorite among our bralettes, because once you’ve seen how this style can deliver both comfort and support you may want to make it the only type in your wardrobe. But you’ll still need a few options to mix and match with outfits, so here are our best bralettes whether you’re looking for details like mesh and lace, love a longer line or prefer a racerback.
We took our crowd favorite, the True Body Lift V Neck Racerback bra and gave it a summer (or any time you’re feeling a bit more sweaty) upgrade. Mesh details add airflow to the wirefree comfort and supportive lift giving the True Body Lift Mesh Racerback bra extra breathability right where you need it most.
Along with the standard cup mesh bralette mentioned above, our take on the racerback is also made for cooling comfort in a full cup style. The True Body Lift Mesh Racerback Full Cup bra delivers the same v neck silhouette and strategically placed mesh panels with extra coverage for DD+ cups. True Body microfiber in a heavier weight increases support and extra airflow offers all day breathability to maximize comfort.
For a slightly sexier detail, our Soft Lace Wirefree Bralette adds beauty to everyday comfort. Encased elastic in the band allows this bra to deliver extra support and smoothing True Body fabric contours breasts for a natural look. Adjustable straps and a hook and eye closure allow you to customize your most comfortable fit while rose gold hardware adds to the pretty.
Not ready to show off your lace? Consider starting with a longline style, meant to be a one two punch for your wardrobe as it serves as both a bra and crop top. With a plunging v-neck and double strap back detail, the Longline Bralette is both daring and comfortable, a combination almost unheard of, until now.
Bralettes are meant to be fun and flirty, with comfort as the signature of this style. True&Co takes comfort a step further ensuring support and offering options for design details and coverage so women of all shapes and sizes can embrace this trend. Having made its renaissance, the bralette seems poised to be a trend with staying power as the category moves towards a more natural look and feel. We’re all about helping you feel your best and hope you find a bralette you love among our lineup.
