It is an understatement to say that I’m a little obsessed with the bralette trend, I literally own one in every style and every color! They are SO comfortable and wonderful to complete a perfect OOTD, the possibilities are endless! You can pair them with dresses, tanks, and even backless blouses. Or you can wear them as crop tops, just like a did a couple days ago because it was way too incredible to not show it off!
Bralettes usually don’t have wires and have little to no padding, which means they aren’t very supportive. So I decided to wear a strapless bra under mine for comfort. This daring and flirty bralette has the prettiest lace detail and lining covers the girls. I paired it with my favorite Fashion Nova Skinny Jeans because in my opinion denim is one of the most versatile fabrics and fashion staples you could possibly stock up on in your closet.
The whole outfit is definitely something I would have never worn years ago, heck, a couple months ago, when I first wore one out in public, I panicked a little and wished I’d brought something to cover with just in case I chickened out. I was beyond aware I was breaking some sort of rule we’ve all been told our entire life and that had to keep my fat body covered at all times. But there I was, being revolutionary in all my plus size bralette glory and smashing silly rules to pieces. It has been with time and practice that I’ve learned to no longer hold onto what I think I’m deemed to wear or what society is fixed on telling me.
If you’re a little intimidated by this new trend though, don’t worry! I get it, a bralette is not something that everyone is comfortable wearing exposed and you don’t have to do it if you don’t want to. Remember fashion is all about having fun with it, so wear what you like, and what feels good to you.
All my love,
