Though we are all born naked, some of us feel more comfortable---day and night---with a little extra support around the bust. Fortunately, we don’t need to bring underwires to bed.
As the bralette trend keeps expanding, it has never been easier to find non-wired full bust sleep bras. Whether you prefer custom-made, easy-fit or cup sized bralettes; there is a product for you.
Lara Intimates is a British independent company creating non-wired lingerie up to an I cup. Their Clio bra has a retro-inspired pattern. It provides some separation and excellent support thanks to the seam placement and a wide underbust band. This style exists in four colorways and is known to flatter every chest. It also comes in a broad size range.
Parfait Dalis is one excellent piece if you are looking for softness and coverage. Made of modal, it's like a cloud for the breasts. The lace detailing adds a touch of femininity and sheerness. Dalis is supportive and provides a beautiful shape even under clothes. As a bonus, it also converts into a racerback style. You could use it to sleep or to go out. No need to worry, this bralette has your back.
Adriana Lace Bralette Available in 5 Colors Fits Bands 30 - 42, Cups D - G via Parfait
Another Parfait piece that would be great for hot summer nights is Adrianna. A little more glamorous than Dalis, this piece is made of lace and has a plunging neckline. With its wide underbust band, it is almost a long line and is meant to provide support and structure to your bust. Like the Dalis, you can cross the straps at the back to accommodate your pretty summer tops.
If you have sensitive nipples or don’t feel comfortable with nipple protrusion, padded bralettes are a great option. Bravissimo now offers a cozy little sleep bra up to a J cup. This style is perfect for those of us who always wake up with one or both breasts sneaking out of our sleepwear. It offers maximum coverage and can accommodate up to two cup sizes. So if your size fluctuates, this bra will still work to support you.
When I said we have now fantastic options, I meant it. The Sugar Candy bra is one of the best full-bust bralettes on the market. It’s a bit sporty and would work for low impact activities like yoga. This bra is seamless, sturdy, but also soft and pleasant to wear. Depending on your breast size and shape, it can replace a wired bra. It’s a very reliable product. The sizing for this piece is specific to the brand, with XS to XXL covering a size range from 30F to 36HH and 38F to 42G.
Panache Andorra is a bralette derived from their initially wired Andorra bra. Made of stretchy lace, Andorra is available in sizes 28-40 D-J cup. This bra offers projection and full cup coverage with the delicacy of pink lace. And this design is perfect for the hotter season.
The Canadian brand Mayana Geneviere makes great maternity products, and their Sean bra is a very versatile option, suitable whether you are breastfeeding or not. This cotton plunge bralette incorporates lace and jewel discreetly and elegantly.
Uye Surana Rosa might seem simple, but this bra is fantastic. Made ethically in New-York this piece is comfortable and flattering. Its open back is also surprisingly accommodating. You will love it for lounging around the house or whenever you don’t want to bother with wires this Summer.
This longline bralette is almost a crop top. If the lace weren’t slightly transparent, it would be suitable as an outerwear piece. Or nipples covers could do the trick. It is surprisingly easy to pull on and off, even in small band sizes. Despite this fact, it remains supportive and structured. It's currently on sale, but Vava lingerie offers lots of similar styles and also creates custom garments.
And last but not least, is the Tutti Rouge Frankie bralette. This piece is fun and pretty but also has a slightly relaxed fit. Each size is meant to fit 2 or 3 cup sizes from 32DD to 38G. This piece has a "hook and eye" closure, so you don’t need to worry about pulling it on and off. It’s cute, efficient, and easy to match with other underwear.
