Bralette ABCs: The Best Lazy Bras For (Almost) All Sizes

New, 5 comments

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome back to Editor's Essentials, a Wednesday feature in which editors from around the Racked network discuss their all-time best buys.

Behold, the bralette: Vaguely French for "the laziest of lazy day bras." These unlined, wire-free styles are the perfect compliment to the drapey tanks of summer, providing, as one of our editors states, "the comfort level of nudity, but with the perve-blocking powers of a layer of fabric."

Despite the glorious freedom the bralette offers, there are a ton that simply do not do your splendid rack justice. In effort to weed out the lacy offenders, our editors—from AA to C/D—are offering up their trusted favorites in the category, from easy mall brand staples to gorgeous designer splurges.
