Bralettes are very on-trend right now so if you’re thinking of following this fashion trend, here are a few of the many ways you can wear and incorporate a bralette into your outfits to help elevate your style and ensure you look fabulous.

What Is a Bralette?

A bralette is essentially an unwired and unpadded bra that can be worn for either supportive or decorative purposes. As they’re designed with style rather than function in mind, bralettes often have more intricate detailing than traditional bras and are worn to be seen or simply for support without wires.

Benefits of Bralettes

Because they don’t contain underwriting, bralettes are a comfier option for many people and are typically more lightweight and easy to wear than structured bras. This means that bralettes can be a more comfortable option if suffering from breast pain as a result of PMT or hormonal changes, such as when going through Menopause. They can also be particularly useful during pregnancy and breastfeeding when wearing underwired bras can result in breast pain, blocked milk ducts and even mastitis.

For people who have undergone breast surgery, a bralette can offer support without the worry of underwires or straps digging in during healing. Black bralettes are also incredibly versatile, meaning they can be worn with a plethora of styles, whether beneath your everyday work outfit for a casual, comfortable look and feel or styled up for a night out.

Here are just a few of the ways to style a bralette so that you can easily incorporate it into your look.


Mesh and fishnet sheer tops are often a big hit around party season but they can sometimes leave you feeling overexposed, not to mention a little chilly! Pairing a sheer top with a bralette in a matching colour can provide some extra coverage without detracting attention from the top, so you can feel confident and sexy on your night out.

Over the Top

If you’d rather your bralette was the centre of attention, wear it over a plain t-shirt and pair it with jeans to create a strong statement. For maximum impact, choose a contrasting colour t-shirt, such as white, under a black bralette, for example, and make sure that the necklines don’t clash by opting for a high neck or crew neck tee with a deep-v-neck bralette.

Dare to Bare

For a big night out in summer or those warmer autumn nights, pairing an intricate bralette with an oversized blazer can help create a chic but sexy business vibe that’s right on trend. Bear in mind that this is a bold, daring look so you’ll need the confidence to pull it off. If you’re unsure about bearing so much skin, you could always button up the bottom of your blazer so that the bralette peeks out over the top.
