A bralette is a light, unlined soft bra that typically does not feature underwires or boning for a more natural fit. Most bralettes are not designed for support, but are rather fashion items, while some bralettes have some extra fabric and underwire to suit all body types. A bralette does not have molded cups or underwires for support and is very light in support which is ideal of leisure, sleeping in or loungewear. Bralettes do not shape the bust and they come in a variety of styles and fabrics, from lace to cotton, from opaque to sheer, from extra small to 4xl.
