Bralettes: Going from comfy to sexy

The newest bralette styles of the season are both stylish and sensuous, proving they are more than just a boring daily staple.

One of the reasons why everybody loves bralettes is because they are just so comfortable. Made without restrictive underwires and with stretchy fabric that hugs your curves, no matter what your size, they’re just so easy to reach for on low key days. But just like a relationship that’s become stuck in a rut, it’s time to spice things up with the good old bralette.

This season, designers have come up with a wide range of sexy and trendy designs that show just how stylish a bralette can be - without compromising on the comfort factor. Here are three ways the latest bralette designs dial up the sex appeal. 

1. They show off your sexy back

As the temperature rises, it’s time to show off a little more skin, especially with trendy back-less tops and outfits made with sheer fabric. This is the perfect opportunity to show off bralettes with stylish design elements, such as gorgeous back detailing. We love Bordelle’s Art Deco Mesh Wrap Bra which features three adjustable satin straps on the back that almost look like body jewellery when peeking out underneath low-back tops and dresses.

Do also look out for other unique details like wrap around straps, which are perfect for layering underneath clothing with large armholes or delicate lace-ups which can peek through a low-cut top.

2. Cut-out bralettes are sweet yet sensual

Cut-outs aren’t just limited to regular bras or bodysuits anymore. You can now find bralettes with trending cut-out styles that are a perfect balance of sweet yet sexy. The romantic Only Hearts Whisper Sweet Nothings Cropped Cami Bra features cut outs on the top of the bra cups for a tantalizing flash of skin. Or, draw attention to your underboob area with the Blubella Lilliana which has a delicate eyelash lace cup that reveals your underbust. Trust us, it is unexpected surprises like these that have the greatest impact.


3. They are sheer and suggestive

It’s amazing how a switch in material, from girly, stretch lace to sheer mesh fabric can dial up a bralette’s sexy factor in a jiffy. Depending on how far you’re willing to go, you can have your pick of sheer bralettes with a guipure lace nipple covering to one that’s designed with an open nipple seam so you can display as much (or as little) as you desire.
