The Best Bralettes

No underwire? No problem.

Aritzia Monterey Bralette

aritzia-monterey-bralette

Crafted from the prettiest Chantilly lace (ooh), but with the addition of a barely-there, skin-friendly lining (aah), this light-as-air design is definitely one to add to the weekend rotation. Bonus? The slender straps have a J-hook, so you can convert it to a racerback as well. Available in four colors.

To buy: $25, aritzia.com.

Topshop Microfibre Crop Top

topshop-microfibre-crop-top

Called a “crop top” because of its lengthening long-line silhouette, this bra combines the best of both worlds—microfiber cups keep sensitive skin happy, while the lace detail extends up the racerback (key for layering with backless or open-back styles).

To buy: $26, topshop.com.

Pink Unlined Floral Lace Halter Bralette

They may be called underpinnings for a reason, but that doesn’t mean you can’t show them off. Layer this high-necked bralette under a top with a low-cut neckline to let the floral lace peek out (and provide a little modesty). Available in five colors.

To buy: $30, ae.com.
