Bralettes and a fuller bust - an unlikely pairing you may be thinking. In many cases, yes - those tiny, triangle pieces of fabric with thin straps and no structure aren’t going to give us fuller bust ladies what we need when it comes to support and lift… But with the ever-growing industry and passionate community of fuller bust lingerie lovers, there’s plenty of bralettes now on the market that offer us the best of both worlds.
Bralettes have rocketed into fashion lately, taking over sales of the push-up bra for many retailers as we turn to festival inspired fashion and super casual vibes for our wardrobes. Calvin Klein and their signature bralettes have triggered an obsession within us for comfortable and fashion forward lingerie that we can wear as an extension of our outfits.
Why do we love bralettes?
Well, what’s not to love? We have to admit, they are probably the most comfortable lingerie option out there - particularly perfect for holidays and the summer weather. They’re lightweight, easy and soft and almost the younger sister version of a ‘real’ bra. They’re traditionally mainly wire-free and rather than being all about supporting, lifting and shaping, bralettes focus more on ticking that comfort box and lending to that loungewear feel that is definitely not exclusively for lazy sundays.
In fact, bralettes have become as much as a fashion accessory as they have a lingerie garment. Showing our push-up or t-shirt bras underneath our clothes can almost feel impolite and unnatural. With a bralette however, many are worn to be layered and seen as a part of your outfit - think pretty, delicate lace peeking out from underneath open knit jumpers, open back tops, sheer blouses and plunging necklines to add that bit of coverage and modesty whilst still keeping it subtly sexy.
Fuller bust bralettes
Fuller busts will not get on with every bralette out there. More coverage is needed - we’re talking thicker straps, more side coverage and just enough support to keep us comfortable. At Tutti Rouge, we work on striking that perfect balance between natural support and ultimate comfort.
Our Frankie bralette is the ideal example. It’s soft mesh and lace material make it super lightweight and comfortable but it’s fashion forward day-to-night style means it’s far from simply lazy-day attire. It features all the support you need whilst embodying comfort with a fierce edge.
For something even more night-out appropriate, try our Taylor Noir bralette for size. It’s an all lace longline bralette which has been designed to make you stand out at party. With padded cups to give you lift and shape, no one needs to know that you’re out in your lingerie! Layer this underneath an open blazer for a super sexy and sophisticated vibe.
