Once You Try a Bralette You'll Never Go Back
Do you take off your bra the moment you get home? If the answer is yes, you’re probably in need of a bralette. These underwire free, less constrictive options can replace a traditional bra — no matter your bust size.
With a bralette top, you have the good parts of bra without the downsides. “It is a first layer garment that provides support to the breast tissue, without employing the traditional constrictive construction methods of a traditional bra,” says Samanta Benassai, head of product at Uwila Warrior. That all sounds great to us.
A bralette does not have:
- Painful hook & eye closure
- Underwire that digs into your sides
- Inflexible molded cups and compressive mesh.
Instead, a bralette is engineered to provide light support for all day comfort. “A bralette is definitely a healthier choice for your breasts, as the lower rigidity of construction allows for more circulation in the breast tissue,” explains Lisa Mullan, Uwila Warrior’s Chief Underwear Officer & Founder.
How to Spot a High-Quality Bralette
When shopping for a bralette, you need something high-quality. “Sometimes I see a cute bra structure, but you put it on and there is no thought to the actual support and functionality of the bra,” Lisa explains, adding that cheaper products tend to have loose threads, non recovering elastics, and low coverage of the breast tissue.
At Uwila Warrior, the band around the bust in our Soft Bra bralette is taller than average, so we don’t have to rely so heavily on the strap. For the underband, we also use a more structured elastic to provide more support and to take some stress off of the straps. Our Soft Bra also has a double layer of mesh fabric in the larger sizes that assists with support. The straps are fun and meant to be shown, and also wider, to even out the support without digging in on the shoulders.
Our bralette is also made with a breathable, sweat-wicking fabric and comes with removable cup inserts, double-lined darted cups, and adjustable straps, you can get just the right amount of support you need.
When Does It Make Sense to Wear a Bralette?
It almost always makes sense to wear a bralette. “Just like any bra or pair of underwear, it's all about finding the right one for you and for your body shape. Our bralettes are great for women looking for medium support,” says Samantha.
Besides high-intensity workouts or a moment when you need a strapless bra, a bralette works well as an everyday bra and is a good replacement to an underwire t-shirt bra. The Uwila bralette also comes with hooks on the back strap, so the straps can convert to a racer back for maximum flexibility.
