Previously this style seemed to only be available in the United States but there has been a drastic shift in trends and manufacturers have got so on board that we don’t see this changing anytime soon.
In the UK these lightweight soft and non-wired crop tops had been limited in style and appeared to be relegated to the teen section as “First Bras”, these lightly lined unwired items with or without light padding have become the new “it” undergarment. Fashionistas such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Maggie Gyllenhall have been happy to show off this very relaxed undergarment and because they are often pretty with stretchy soft lace it doesn’t matter if the peek through your clothing.
Underwired bras, with their sometimes digging straps and fiddly clasps don’t always score highly in the comfort stakes so the bralette is also the perfect antidote to a hard day’s work. Many fans of these wear their regular bra during the day and when they get home they can throw on a bralette, kick back and relax, often referring to them as the ultimate in lounge wear.
.Most come in clothing size or small, medium and large and often just pull on. Whilst it is true that they are more suitable to those who require less support (i.e. generally smaller than a UK E cup) they have not gone unnoticed by the fuller cup specialists who are now investing money in developing and introducing their own versions. Also, once only considered suitable for the young, such is the appeal of these items that there are now bralettes for everyone.
