Bralettes mean comfort and freedom and are now a popular part of many a woman's lingerie collection. The bralette evolved in the revoutionary bra-burning days of 1960s and 1970s - a reaction against the conformity and constraints of conventional fashion. With a bralette your breast preserves its natural shape and profile, not the shape imposed by the bra. Originally they were only for small breasts and cup sizes. And instead of the complex alphanumeric sizing of standard bras, bralettes just came in small, medium and large. Today bralettes, triangles or soft bras as they are also called, are an option for the bigger breasts as well. Brands such as Cosabella and Aubade have beautifully crafted bralettes for curvier shapes up to G cups and some bralettes are also wired if you want that extra support.
