Style Ish: Bralettes

On to the frivolous!  Despite the fact that my own tits are probably a bit inappropriately large for this trend, I find myself swapping out my bras for bralettes at every possible opportunity these days.  They don’t have any sort of “push-up” effect,   nor do they offer much in the way of support, but damned if they aren’t pretty and comfortable as hell.  Other characteristics of bralettes vs. bras:  no padding, no underwire, no bullshit.

I rock ’em basically every day that I don’t have to look respectable (i.e. be in an office.)  Highly recommended for: small-breasted ladies, large-breasted ladies who dgaf, and of course, my beautiful m2f and in-between friends.

    I like the word “bralettes”. It’s like somebody cut up two different words and stuck them together in a collage sort of way so that they almost fit, but not quite. (I really like the written/typed word in general.)

    My favourite of these is the Fortnight Longline Vega. It’s cool to know these exist, though I dunno if I’d ever get to wear one.

      I was thinking it’s such a silly word! But I like it too. You should totally get a bralette- they’re decorative and good!

        Absurd words are often some of the coolest. I’ll have to get one, then- this would be the perfect time for me to wear a bralette anyway.
