The push-up bra got pushed over this summer by the bralette. And, while I do love my Natori bras, which I discovered during a very thorough bra fitting years ago, nothing trumps the comfort of a bralette. No underwire, y’all! In addition to being comfortable, bralettes can help solve tricky styling situations.
Take this sheer blouse, for example. It’s a completely see-through, print top that I knew I would wear during the day. I didn’t, however, want to wear a camisole underneath because it seemed bulky. I also didn’t want to wear my strapless bra underneath because the hook closure at the back would be visible. A bralette though? It was the perfect solution. I’m wearing a black bandeau bra that’s $21 at Venus. The bandeau is available in a few other colors, including a chocolate that’ll be a perfect nude choice on me.
To complete the look, I added a few accessories that complement the colors in my sheer blouse, like my Kendra Scott Jayce necklace in gray granite. By the way, I’m so glad I could finally wear this blouse.
