We'll be the first to admit that small-chested ladies were dealt a pretty good hand when it comes to bra options. There are unique concerns associated with having less material up there, of course. But when boob support can take a backseat to style and personal preference, the lingerie floodgates open.
In recent years, we've seen the rise of the bralette, the ultimate fashion-meets-function solution for women with A and B cups. It has minimal support, optimal comfort, and a sleek look. And everyone has an opinion on them.
Think of bralettes as the grown-up versions of training bras. They also serve as an opportunity to experiment with lace, cutouts, and other cheeky details we may be a little hesitant to incorporate into our undergarment lineup. Most importantly, though, they're darn comfortable: lightweight, with a little bit of stretch that allows the bra to fit perfectly with the contours of our body, all the while keeping our modest cups in line.
