WHAT IS A BRALETTE?

In the bralette vs bra debate, you’ll learn that there are quite a few differences between the two. No, they’re not the same, and no, bralettes aren’t like training bras. Bralettes are lightweight versions of traditional bras, and if you wear one, you might notice that they feel less constricting. Some have underwire, but bralettes typically use just one layer of fabric without lining or padding in the cups.

If you’re curious about what is an unlined bra, a bralette could be the perfect choice for you! I personally live in them because I like the comfort of a sports bra with the look of a bra-bra. I’m obsessed with the airy comfort of a bralette without going braless. A win-win for me!

But I’m not the only bra-comfort seeker. According to a recent study by the New York Times, sales for wireless bras increased by 14% and pullover bras by over 30%. And for one Italian lingerie company operating for 37 years, bralettes have become 50% of their sales. Comfort is in, and bra-wearers want more options.

BRALETTES & BOOB SHAPES

Bralettes are also great for supporting your natural boob shape. One study found that 71% of women are unsatisfied with their boobs, and nearly 50% want bigger breasts. But did you know there are nine types of breast shapes? And even within those categories, breasts can vary, so there’s truly no perfect set of boobs.

If you want to embrace your natural shape while enhancing your look, a bralette is an excellent option. Bralettes can help shape your boobs while maintaining that natural movement. So you still feel like yourself without any restricted cups or padding.  


TYPES OF BRALETTES

Nowadays, there are tons of womens underwear styles, and that includes bralettes. You can opt for classic designs and patterns or get a little adventurous with lace, mesh, bold colors, or different neck designs. Some look like sports bras, while others take on the appearance of cropped tank tops with traditional scoop necks, boat necks, or v-necks.

WAMA makes two types of bralettes: the triangle bralette and the racerback bralette. They’re both excellent options for sustainable underwear and use hemp, which is lightweight, durable, and breathable. Hemp fabric also makes naturally antibacterial underwear, so even when suffering from boob sweat, you stay bacteria-free.

Although different in style, you’ll find that the triangle bralette and racerback bralette are similar and interchangeable in many ways.

TRIANGLE BRALETTE

Honestly, you could wear the triangle bralette anywhere. I have two self-determined life levels: “serious” (LOL) and “comfort.” My triangle bralette hangs out with me when I need to be more serious and act like a grown-up, like when at work or presenting myself in public. I keep it hidden when in professional places, but I love to let it peek out from a blouse, dress, or sweater when I’m just hanging with my friends.

RACERBACK BRALETTE

My racerback bralette is my comfortable sidekick—we do everything together. We nap, go to the gym, hike in the forest, lounge on the couch, inhale an entire bag of popcorn, and run errands together. We’re two peas in a pod, and she’s seriously the comfiest bralette of all time. The racerback wears like a sports bra, so I just pull it on and go.


HOW TO WEAR BRALETTE OUTFITS

To know what to wear a bralette with, you need to find your style. Bralette outfits can take on many forms. They can be edgy with structured jackets and tight leather skirts or delicate and romantic with sheer tops and high-waisted pants. Get colorful, be neutral, or embrace monotone. Whatever you decide, you can definitely pull off that bralette!


23 CUTE OUTFITS WITH BRALETTES

Whether you want to look chic in a bralette + blazer or trendy in a sheer top, there are plenty of bralette outfits to try.


1. WEAR IT UNDER A BLOUSE

A woman creating cute outfits with bralettes wears hers under a loose blouse.

WHY IT WORKS

No need to overthink what to wear a bralette with, because this style is a classic. It works because your bralette pokes out casually under a loose-fitting blouse. You’re covered up but unbuttoned enough to show off your bralette, and the look is the epitome of “I’m super casual yet stylish, and I totally woke up like this.”


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Because a blouse covers your shoulders, it’s best to wear a triangle bralette with this look. You want that subtle skin exposure to balance out the looseness of your shirt.


2. WEAR IT WITH COLORS OR PATTERNS AT A FESTIVAL

Women dancing at a festival bralette outfits.

WHY IT WORKS

Nothing says “look how free I am” than wearing a bralette at a festival! Festivals are meant for casual fashion that shows your skin. Bonus if you wear bright colors and fun patterns! Keep things balanced by wearing tight bottoms or something flowy.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Both the racerback bralette and triangle bralette work well at a festival. Wear the triangle style to show off more skin or the racerback to cover up a bit. If you’ll be dancing all day and night, then go for the racerback to offer your boobs a bit more support.


3. WEAR IT UNDER A HIP LEATHER JACKET

A woman sitting in a field of wildflowers knows how to wear a bralette under a leather jacket.

WHY IT WORKS

Style is all about balance, so pairing a sweet bralette with an edgy leather moto jacket is *chef’s kiss*. The tightness of the bra complements the loose top and the same for the opposing fabrics. Plus, this style works for chilly evenings hanging with friends.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Both bralettes work here. Go for the triangle bralette for more contrast, especially since the jacket will cover you up. Or grab your racerback bralette if you want to keep the vibe a bit tougher.


4. WEAR IT WITH DENIM SHORTS

A woman standing on the beach at sunset knows what to wear a bralette with and pairs it with denim shorts.

WHY IT WORKS

If you want to create that perfect hourglass shape, this outfit is how you do it. Pair a tight bralette with denim shorts that sit high on the waist, flared out a bit at your hips and butt cheeks. Va-va-voom! It’s a perfect style for a beach or pool day.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Wear a triangle bralette for a sweeter look and a racerback bralette for a more sporty look. Either style will help you accentuate your curves and keep you cool on hotter days.


5. WEAR IT WITH RIPPED DENIM

A woman standing in a modern building wears a bralette with ripped jeans.

WHY IT WORKS

If you’re struggling with how to wear a bralette, just remember my above TEDTalk about balance and fashion. It’s the same concept here—you want to balance out those cool ripped jeans with a tighter top, like a bralette. For the best look, keep your jeans a bit baggy.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Go with the racerback bralette for this outfit. With ripped, slightly baggy jeans, a racerback style will keep that tough vibe with just enough femininity.


6. LET IT POKE OUT A LITTLE

A woman laughing and sitting on steps wears her bralette poking out from her blouse.

WHY IT WORKS

Just like wearing a bralette under a loose blouse, letting your undergarments poke out a bit is fun, casual, and gives you that cool person look. Let your bralette show either on the shoulders or at the very bottom of the neckline. Button-down a bit if you need to.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

The triangle bralette is the best style here because you don’t want too much fabric to show. A triangle style reveals more skin and the ideal slight glimpse of material.


7. WEAR IT UNDER A BOMBER JACKET

A woman creating cute outfits with bralettes wears hers under a bomber jacket.

WHY IT WORKS

Oh, hey, balance again, creating the perfect bralette outfits! Much like the edgy leather jacket mix, a cool bomber will do the same trick. But with a bomber, you can express your personality a bit more. Wear bright colors or fun patterns, keep it cropped, go off the shoulder, or zip it up.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

To uphold the all-mighty balance, wear a triangle bralette. The sweet, delicate triangle cut contrasts perfectly with a boxy bomber.


8. WEAR IT UNDER A SHEER TOP

Two women dancing wear hip bralette outfits, one under a sheer top.

WHY IT WORKS

Wearing a sheer or mesh top over a bralette works because it’s like you’re covering up, but not. You’re wearing a shirt, but it’s see-through. It’s clothing, yet somehow not clothes. Am I supposed to understand fashion? Either way, this is what cute outfits with bralettes are made of.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Wear a triangle bralette with these types of bralette outfits. Because you’re wearing a “shirt” over your bra, you want to show off the skin. I know, confusing, but that’s how fashion works.


9. WEAR IT AS-IS!

A woman smiling and holding her sunglasses wears a turquoise bralette on its own.

WHY IT WORKS

With the right bralette, you can just wear it as-is, and it fits like a top! I exist when Taylor Swift makes music, leggings are pants, and bralettes are tops. How did I get so lucky?! What I love most about the bralette-as-a-top style is that it’s expressing yourself just as you are. Body positivity!


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

A racerback bralette, or a bralette with a higher neckline like scoop or boat, is your best bet. The idea is not to feel like you’re wearing a bra or bikini top but to feel confident and comfy in your bralette alone. The racerback style offers just enough coverage to accomplish this feat.


10. WEAR IT WITH ATHLEISURE

A woman smiling and holding her sunglasses wears a turquoise bralette on its own.

WHY IT WORKS

Nothing is more comfy yet stylish than athleisure. Pairing a bralette with joggers or leggings creates that perfectly casual LA vibe and one of the easiest bralette outfits to master. And since bralettes aren’t as structured as traditional bras, you can totally get away with it!


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Wear a racerback bralette or one with a slightly higher neck to keep that balance. Since athleisure tends to be ultra-casual (and can sometimes show off a lot of skin), wear a bralette with a bit more coverage. Plus, when you wear a bralette on its own, it always helps to have more support for your ta-tas.


11. WEAR IT WITH HIGH-WAISTED BOTTOMS

A woman reading a book knows what to wear a bralette with and pairs it with a high-waisted skirt.

WHY IT WORKS

By pairing a bralette with high-waisted fashion, it almost looks like a crop top, and you don’t have to show too much skin if you don’t want to. Although this style is still casual, you can wear certain colors or fabrics to make it a little sophisticated, like with pleats or twill. This is one of my favorite bralette outfits because it’s super versatile.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Once again, the racerback bralette or a higher neckline reigns. Since you’re wearing a bralette without anything covering it, you don’t want to show off too much of your boobs. Plus, more coverage on top with a high-waisted skirt or pants maintains that perfect balance.


12. WEAR IT SHEER BUT WITH A HIGH COLLAR

A woman standing under a tree with a digital camera on her eye wears a bralette under a sheer high-neck blouse.

WHY IT WORKS

Any sheer top will do, but what brings this look to the next level is the high neck and frilly sleeves. It combines ultra-coverage with see-through. Yes, I’m still confused, but in a good way! Contradiction, but make it fashion.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Opt for the triangle bralette here. Show off that skin with a more delicate look to contrast with the higher neckline. You’re bringing back that sweet bra vibe juxtaposed with stiff 19th-century vibes. There’s too much to love here!


13. WEAR IT WITH A SCARF, CARDIGAN, OR COVER-UP

A standing woman knows how to wear a bralette and pairs it with a patterned cardigan.

WHY IT WORKS

How to wear a bralette without being too revealing? Keep it causally balanced by tossing a scarf, shawl, cardigan, or any type of cover-up over it. This is one of the most versatile bralette outfits because you can make it your own. Wear a big, chunky, neutral cardi or a light, airy, colorful scarf.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

You can wear either the triangle bralette or racerback bralette with this style. I like the triangle if I’m wearing something more structured or textured on top, and the racerback for a scarf or shawl that’s more delicate.


14. WEAR IT UNDER A TANK

A woman curious about bralette outfits creates one by wearing hers under a blue tank top while standing outside.

WHY IT WORKS

You can let your bralette poke out from a blouse, shirt, dress, or tank—the sky’s the limit here. I love letting mine show from a low-cut sport tank. For more of a look, pair a neutral bralette with a bright or bold-colored top.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

The triangle bralette will show off just enough fabric and skin to keep things balanced and fashionable. Plus, I love the triangle bralette’s convertible straps here because I can criss-cross them in the back if I only want the front to show.


15. WEAR IT WITH A BLAZER AND TROUSERS

A woman standing in front of a door on a staircase wears a bralette under her blazer.

WHY IT WORKS

I mean, can you get any cooler than this? A structured power suit with a delicate bralette is the hip version of Hilary Clinton, and I’m here for it. Go monotone or wear some bright contrasting colors. Either one says, “Yea, my bra is showing, get over it.”


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Both bralette styles work here. Wear a triangle bralette if you want to balance out the stiffness of the structured suit with a delicate lewk. Or opt for the racerback bralette to cover up yet still make a statement.


16. WEAR IT OVER A TOP

A woman standing and holding a handbag knows how to create bralette outfits and wears hers over a white blouse.

WHY IT WORKS

The 90s called, and they… are back! You didn’t think you’d ever see the underwear as outerwear trend again, did you? Well, now it has a pretty cool twist because bralettes really complement this look! Frilly push-up bras look a little awkward over tops, but bralettes make it work.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

You need a bralette with a low cut, so go for the triangle bralette with this outfit. You can still have thicker straps, but too much coverage kind of defeats the purpose.


17. WEAR IT WITH A LEATHER SKIRT

A woman walking in front of five men wears a bralette with a leather skirt.

WHY IT WORKS

If you really wanna work it, pair your bralette with a leather skirt. This is truly how to wear a bralette: structured, edgy, and dark on the bottom, while sweet and delicate with a tough twist on the top. Make it even cooler with a lightweight cardi or bomber jacket.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

You don’t need to worry about what to wear a bralette with if you have a leather skit—it goes perfectly with anything! Grab your triangle bralette to highlight the soft top, or go for a racerback bralette to keep it edgy or sporty.


18. WEAR IT WITH OVERALLS

A woman sitting in a grocery cart knows how to create bralette outfits and wears hers under overalls.

WHY IT WORKS

This is one of my go-to bralette outfits. I love all the coverage with just the sides of your waist, shoulders, and arms showing. It’s playful and sweet yet doesn’t expose too much skin. And with the bralette, it almost feels like you’re wearing a crop top or sports bra.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

You want a racerback bralette or one with a higher neck so that it doesn’t look like you’re just wearing a regular bra. The whole point of cute outfits with bralettes is that you appear to be wearing a bralette! So wear one with a bit more coverage for this style.


19. WEAR IT WITH A FLOWY SKIRT

A standing woman knows how to wear a bralette and pairs hers with a flowy skirt.

WHY IT WORKS

If you feel lost about what to wear a bralette with, always go with something flowy on the bottom. It’s the perfect combo. Tight and slightly revealing on the top and loose and bouncy on the bottom. You really can’t go wrong here!


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Either style works since it’s mostly about balancing tight on top and flowy on the bottom. A triangle bralette will accentuate that contrast, while a racerback bralette maintains a more sporty or beachy vibe.


20. WEAR IT WITH BAGGY CLOTHES

A woman sitting on stairs knows what to wear a bralette with and pairs hers with baggy jeans and a baggy top.

WHY IT WORKS

How to wear a bralette if your style is baggy? Just be you! Once again, something baggy offers that picture-perfect style contrast. Get some loose jeans and a flowy denim shirt or jacket to pull it all together.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

The racerback bralette will work best because you want to balance out the bagginess with a bit more coverage. A bralette that’s too revealing will look out of place with the rest of your loose clothing.


21. WEAR IT UNDER A CORSET

A woman sitting on a bench with a shopping bag wears a bralette under a corset.

WHY IT WORKS

I’m excited to try this look! Corsets often look too much like lingerie for me to feel comfortable, but sneaking a bralette underneath solves the issue. I love how it feels so feminine and a little blunt without showing too much skin.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Because of the lower-cut corset style, you’ll need a triangle bralette. You want just enough fabric to cover your boobs and poke out at the top of the corset.


22. WEAR IT AT THE BEACH

A woman standing on a beach dancing ballet knows how to wear cute outfits with bralettes and pairs hers with a flowy skirt over matching underwear. Link

WHY IT WORKS

Bralettes are excellent beach gear. They’re perfect for keeping cool and soaking up the sun. And if you go with hemp, you’ll wear naturally upf fabric to protect against sun damage. Plus, I love how beachy cover-ups look with bralettes and super soft weed underwear.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Either style looks great on the beach. I like wearing my triangle bralette if I’m wearing a flowy cover-up, but the racerback bralette is great for any sporty activity.


23. WEAR IT WITH A BELT

A woman wears a black lace bralette with high-waisted pants and a belt.

WHY IT WORKS

The delicateness of a bralette goes perfectly with a rough, structured belt. Bonus if it has a dominant metal buckle or any sort of embellishments. It’s best to keep things monotone for a sleek look or mix and match complementary colors and patterns for a little personal oomph.


BEST BRALETTE STYLE

Go for the triangle bralette to maintain that balance, but spice it up with a fun cut or some lace. The racerback bralette also works well with this outfit, especially if you want to pull off an edgier vibe.
