What is the difference between a Bra and a Bralette?
A bralette is an unstructured bra, which means it’s usually unlined, unpadded, and wireless.
Most bralettes consist of the following characteristics: an elastic band, sewn with two fabric (lace, or some other breathable, stretchy material) triangle cups. These cups will often have a dart design to accommodate for the volume of the breast. Since the fabric is stretchier and there is no underwire part, bralettes will respect the shape of your natural breast.
What is the point of a Bralette?
Bralette are more comfortable because of a closer and less structured fitting; you don’t feel constricted while wearing them. They have thin or lacy straps like a regular bra and offer some support to your breast. Bralettes look great under any casual outfit.
Bralette or Bralet?
dievca has seen it spelled both ways, but Bralette seems to be more common spelling and as far as she knows…both versions of the word describe the same type of lingerie top.

PS. Is anyone feeling “Spice Girl-ish” after seeing that Union Jack Bralette?
