Bralette FAQs

Do I need to wear anything under a bralette? 

No, bralettes are made to provide support and are designed for the correct size breasts.

How do I know what size to get? 

Our bralettes come in letter sizes. The straps should be snug, supportive, and comfortably tight so they don't shift. The band of a bralette is where the majority of the support comes from, so this should fit two-fingers snug. 

What fabrication should I look for? 

Our bralettes come in a variety of fabrications, such as Butter, Lace, Microfiber, even Faux Leather. Having a couple different fabrication options in your drawer opens the door to endless styling possibilities! 

What are the benefits of a bralette?

Bralettes are flexible, versatile, soft, yet supportive. Bralettes are ideal for those who are bothered by underwire bras.
