Best Bralette?



Recommended Posts

OK ladies - I'm headed on vacation. Bras take up a lot of room, so I thought about traveling with a bralette or something without an underwire/non-molded cups. But, I have the typical WLS problem of SUPER droopy breasts that are still decently large. So, anyone have a rec for a bralette or something similarly easily packable that is still supportive? Thanks!

Sports bra may have more support.

True, but I have a hard time wearing sports bras under real clothes. And for some reason my back usually hurts when I wear a sports bra (probably because I have the wrong ones, but how does one find the right ones?)

Some stores provide a bra fitting service

I can only think of a sports bra, one that doesn't much your boobs together like a uniboob. I have the same problem you do, they're still decently large, but sagging with gravity and in my case, age. I think I got a decent one at Lane Bryant. But of course the problem with sports bras is they make you sweat more and if you're going somewhere tropical you don't want to sweat. Sorry I don't know anything about bralettes.

I have a couple of Shapewear tanks with no wire or molded cups but they are made in such a way that they do provide support and are pretty comfortable. It is important to try them on since you want a pretty snug fit. This one is from Maidenform but I got it for cheap at Ross Dress for Less. I actually apply antiperspirant under my boobs after a shower and then use some Gold Bond powder to prevent itchy boob sweat when wearing these. I also have a couple of non padded underwire racerback style bras that work well and take up no room at all.

Maybe a t-shirt bra? Bras are hard. I go to a local bra shop with fitters even after PS

If you have larger breasts, a bralette Isn’t a good choice. No support

My normal bras all have support. I just like being a little more comfortable when I travel. And I like bras that are easier to pack than my normal bras.

I understand the convenience of them, I was weighing in from a larger breast point of view. I have Ds and a bra lette makes them look saggy and droopy

Oh, the girls will 100% look saggy and droopy, I just don't care all that much when I'm on vacation :) My #1 priority is packing a little as possible in as small a footprint as possible :)

I would recommend Torrid for a good bralette. My friend has a problem of dealing with larger breasts, and she absolutely loves their bralettes. Plus, they are super cute and super comfortable!

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

        Yay you!!! You're a rockstar girlie!!!

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
