Summer is the season of work for us. In this summer race, when we sew Your orders, pack them and work on wedding looks, we want to go back and discuss some nuances about bralettes . Even though in the last big blog post (read BRALETTES PART I) we shared insights and tips about this category of bras, we feel we can share a few more thoughts on bralettes.
Our goal is for women to be more confident in choosing different bras. Which do not restrict and allow them to breath. Why is this important? Because when communicating with clients, we often hear stories that bralettes are not their thing; bought or received as a gift and are uncomfortable; do not fit their chest and etc. Often it poor experience, which has nothing to do with “not my body”. We have repeatedly mentioned that physical sensations of feeling free as well as looking beautiful at the same time are easily accessible, so we hope that for those who are interested in this topic, the thoughts in this blog post will be relevant and adaptable to give a chance to a bralette-type bra.
Mass production: Injuries and poor choices.
We have nothing against mass production and a particularly wide selection, but when talking with clients during consultations, we often hear stories of poor experiences with purchasing a bracelet from mass production retail chains .. Often in mass-produced retail outlets, the bralette is viewed more offhandedly, as it is viewed as a “swimsuit” type of bra that should suit everyone. In most cases, the sizes are divided only into S M L, that’s where the biggest injustice arises. Not without a reason, bras have a set of sizes that indicate not only the size of the cup, but also the volume around the chest, such as: A70, A75, B75, B80, etc.
Bralettes could be more comfortable if they would be manufactured within the same parameters, but with only S M L sizes, it is difficult to choose the right one for you. It is rare that one can squeeze herself into one S, M or L size. The size S will usually never be suitable for those with size A or will not look so beautiful anymore. The size M can be suitable for a medium-sized chest owner, but the volume under can be restricting and etc. We are not all the same and our volumes are individual. This is why the greatest joy for us is when we sew bralettes for those who are going to wear them for the first time, or for those who still have doubts. Contributing to the “first times”, helping to discover something new and overshadowing a bad experience is a very good feeling, that motivates at the same time.
TIP: When choosing a bralette in the store, pay attention to the bralette sizes.
If you find S M L, examine its rubbers. You may be lucky if they are really very soft, thin and very elastic. In this case, it will easily adapt to your body and you will not experience discomfort while wearing it.
The importance of the sides of the bralette
This is an important detail not only for beauty, but also for comfort. Those who wear bralettes have probably noticed that some bralettes have “frames” – details on the sides. These sides are sewed in not only for beauty, especially when they are laced, their function is really important for comfortable wearing. This is less relevant for size A, but for larger size bralettes, this detail allows to stably feel your chest, to wrap around it more fully and hold it in. Without these sides, some bralettes may feel more strained and uncomfortable, not holding the cup properly.
TIP: We recommend that you always pay attention to whether the bralette has sides. Especially for those who are larger than size A. The vast majority of bralettes do not have them, so if you are considering which one to choose – choose the one with the side.
If our thoughts and advice were helpful and helped at least one woman, we will be happy. We see a lot of meaning and happiness in the opportunity to communicate, share information, help support each other both inside and outside the studio.
