Bralettes Are an Essential Layering Piece to Achieve a Fashion-Forward and Easy-To-Wear Style
Layering clothing serves many purposes. First and foremost, layering is practical because wearing several pieces of clothing adds warmth and allows you to remove items as the day gets warmer. But layering isn’t just for the practical dresser. For you fashion-conscious ladies out there, layering is a key way to look of-the-moment, too!
Using the layering method isn’t always as easy as it would seem. For example, several pieces of clothing of the same length can add volume to your tummy or hip area, resulting in an unflattering look. Likewise, bulky or frilly pieces worn underneath clothing can result in an awkward appearance.
The good news is there is an easy way to follow the layering trend to look fashionable while cutting down on the time it takes to put your outfit together. Because let’s face it – we all have better things to do than to spend hours layering and un-layering while trying to get the right look. Fashion, after all, should be fun. And the best way to make getting dressed fun is to keep it simple.
That’s why bralettes are a fantastic source for achieving the layered look in an easy-to-wear way. Bralettes are wire-free bras that provide support and shape without constricting wires. Bralettes can either be soft-cup (i.e., without padding) or lightly padded. Many bralettes come with removable pads, allowing women to decide when they want extra padding and when they don’t. Usually, bralettes have slightly higher bust lines and therefore look like camisoles when layered under clothing.
To achieve the layered look with a bralette you want to look for one that offers support for your bra cup size while looking attractive showing under clothing. Some bralettes have lace trim at the top of the bust line and therefore add a feminine touch to an outfit. Other bralettes are lace-free and offer a more streamlined look that is similar to a traditional camisole. The most important thing is to find a bralette that fits both your cup and band size accurately as well as your personal style preference.
The bottom line is, don’t let the idea of achieving the right look through layering stress you out. Take a deep breath, relax, and reach for your bralette the next time you’re looking to add a pretty touch under your clothes.
