Are bralettes good for breasts?

There is currently no evidence that suggests wearing a bra versus a bralette is better for your breasts. Thus, people who are looking for comfort and support can rest assured that bralettes can provide that without causing any sagging.

Those with fuller busts especially may find that they prefer bralettes over regular bras because they don’t constrict or flatten your chest like many regular bras.

Bralettes also typically feature adjustable straps and bands which means they are very versatile, plus they offer breathability without sacrificing coverage.

Is it OK to wear a bralette everyday?

Those who despise underwire bras because they dig in and cause discomfort, sometimes even pain, will be reassured to know that it is perfectly fine to wear bralettes as your everyday bra.
