Your bff swears by her bralettes while your co-worker says she can’t live without her bras. Cold hard truth, many of us are left asking “but, what’s the difference?” We’re here to break it down and dish the real deal on bras vs bralettes — what makes them different, why you should care, and when you should wear them. Spoiler: You’re going to want both in your top drawer.
What makes them great: The No-Bra Bra Feels
For when you don’t want to wear a bra but kind hafta. Instead of choosing between underwire and no bra at all, opt for a bralette that hangs in the middle offering total comfort and high-style all in one. If you don’t need as much support, you might just throw your bras out and start living in these things.
When you wear it: Casually with pretty much anything
It’s basically the next best thing to wearing no bra at all, but with the support and coverage you need. Looks best under flowy clothing or layered with jackets and slouching tops. If you like the super natural look, wear it under fitted shirts too and high waist jeans. You really can’t go wrong!
The Seamless Racerback Bralette: literally just grab and go! No pulling, fixing, or adjusting — just incredible comfort, support, pull over functionality, and a our fave layering piece under jackets.
The Busty Bralette: Think you can’t wear a bralette with D-DDD cups? Think again! Skip the structure and wires for a truly supportive and full coverage bralette that’s got your back all day long. Our crew swears it’s like magic the way it lifts and makes them feel secure.
What makes them great: The structure you want, with the comfort you deserve
When you think of bras, do you think of extra padding, poking wires, or gapping cups? Luckily, we’ve figured out how to make them blissfully comfy and ultra stylish without sacrificing shape, function, or support! Our bras give you the option of wire or no wire at all, plus ultra comfy fabrics made for all day wear. Love a good push-up, but can’t stand the “hard as rocks” feel? Our bras will give you just enough bump without all the extra padding so you can look good, be confident, and feel great.
When you wear it: When you want more shape or support
We usually go for bras for our daily styling — best under all the usual suspects: t-shirts, tanks, dress shirts, dresses, and anything else that requires a bit more shape and a seamless look under clothing.
Our fave picks...
The All-Day Deep V No-Wire: Our #1 selling bra of all time with over 150k sold featuring no-wires, a deep v neckline, front adjusting straps for easy fixes, and a back j-hook that converts to a racerback. As if it couldn’t get any better, the entire bra features our modal fabric that was voted softest ever by our crew. Basically, this is about to be your everyday go-to.
The T-Shirt Bra: Nicknamed our MVP because of it’s perfect fit, support, and seamless look under clothing (like a t-shirt bra should be). It also features all the things like front adjusters, a back j-hook, and pretty lace details on the back straps. Even bralette lovers will be reaching for this one on the daily.
These bras can do pretty much anything! Lounge around the house in them, or style under your best WFH outfit.
Our fave picks...
The Spacer Bra: This game-changing bra had a 5,000+ waitlist before launching and continues to sellout after it’s restocked. What is a spacer bra you ask? A very light and airy bra that molds to your body giving it a quality between a bralette and a no-wire bra. It’s basically like a cloud for your boobs.
The Stripe Mesh Bra: Our #1 most requested bralette of all-time with a long lined band and removable pads dishing that support and shape you love. It’s a fan fave under clothes with a seamless without see-through look and edgy mesh details made for showing off.
