What Is a Bralette?

A bralette is a style of women’s bra with significant differences from a regular bra. It is predominately wire-free, clasp-free, lightweight, and soft. There’s no faff, hardware, or major structure, making the bralette an essential choice for comfort. With the right size, a bralette can fit so well it becomes more like a second skin, working great with both a smaller cup and D-plus cup size.

Its fashion value is strong and comes in a range of materials and styles from lacy and sexy to sturdy and extra supportive. The bralette is trendy because of its versatility, transforming from underwear to outerwear in minutes as a sports bra or crop top.

Are Bralettes Good For Large Busts?

It is a common misconception that bralettes are designed for smaller cupped women. They’re actually suited to a variety of cup sizes, and there are lots of reasons to choose a bralette over a regular bra if you have a large bust. The primary reason for shopping for bralettes is that they are supremely comfortable and come in styles that offer all the support you need. As there is no underwire, there is nothing to dig into the back or ribcage like with your wired bras, leaving you mark-free.

There is no hook and eye closure either, and are designed to be pulled on. They typically have a wide band for added support, the cups are considerably deeper for larger sizes, and they’re surprisingly secure. There’s no slipping out, and no one cup too big.

Bralettes designed with a larger chest in mind often have double-layered fabric. This extra layer provides great coverage and helps keep the breasts in place better than a structured bra. Adjustable straps and racerback styles are additionally supportive.

Why Use Bralettes For Large Busts?

There are multiple reasons why bralettes work well for larger bust sizes. Here are 4 top reasons to select a bralette as your bra of choice.


No need for underwire bras! Supportive bralettes really do exist, if you know what you’re looking for. Look out for bralettes with considerably deeper cups. This will support each breast and keep them secure. The more supportive types are created with a longline band that extends further down the body, keeping your breasts firmly in place. A wideband is always a good sign, and wide bra straps or straps you can adjust are a must for more support. Sometimes this added support can provide a true body lift that you weren’t expecting. There’s no question that a supportive bra works wonders on your confidence!

Confidence and Self-Love

Feeling sexy in a good underwire bra can revitalize your mood. Knowing that your chest is secure and protected in the most comfortable bra that actually looks good too is a great confidence boost. Although it doesn’t always seem like it from the outside, bralettes are designed with diversity in mind. Lingerie is all about feeling good, whether you’re showing it off to someone special, or using it as a practical tool to fashion your outfit. Whatever the reason, celebrate yourself and start the week off strong with the best bralette.

Full Coverage Varieties

Whatever your cup size, bralettes come in a variety of coverage from just enough coverage to full coverage. Going wire-free might feel like a sacrifice on the support scale, but this is where full coverage bra options give you exactly what you need. With full coverage bralettes for big busts, it may become visible underneath when worn with lower cut tops. Fear not, there’s no harm in choosing sexier options like lace, silk, and patterned designs. It will be the cute trim of your bralette that peeks out, rather than your cleavage.

Stylish, Trendy, and Fashionable

Bralettes for big busts can be super fashionable. There are many stylish designs on the market, including seamless, strappy, slinky, silky, lace, reinforced seams, and wide strapped. A bralette with similar support and style to a sports bra, you could even wear it to the gym or wear it as a regular crop top. A busty bralette can accentuate the breasts too, all while being supportive. There are lots of cute bras available, with charming details and trims that can even add to the outfit you’re wearing if done right.
