What Is A Bralette?

A bralette is a lightweight bra without underwire. Beyond that, bralettes vary wildly. Bralettes are typically constructed with stretch fabrics:

  • They can be made of lace, mesh, modal, and spandex, among many others.
  • They may fasten in the front or back with a zipper, button, or hook and eye closure.
  • The bra band may or may not be lined with lingerie mesh or sturdier power mesh.

The most supportive bralettes have a power mesh-lined bra band, bra cups with strategic seaming, and a back hook and eye closure.
