I don’t have a huge chest, but I am working with a little something something and so I had all but written off bralettes. Sure they look pretty and cute, but having had a baby 8 years ago, I need all the support I can get.
I was doing just fine in my underwire T-shirt bras until we hit our 8th straight day of 90 degree weather here in NYC and I just couldn’t bear the thought of sweating to death in that molded underwire bra another day. So I made it my mission to find a lightweight, comfortable bralette that still offered some semblance of support.
Full disclosure: I ordered 32 bralettes at all different price points. The vast majority were either completely impractical or just wouldn’t stand up to 8 hours of wear. But there was one that emerged as the clear leader of the pack: Cosabella’s Dolce Soft Bra.
Now be forewarned, this bra isn’t exactly cheap. It’s $55, which is more than I typically like to pay for bras but luckily you can find them on sale at different places on the Web (check 6pm and Amazon). What makes this bralette so special is that the straps are substantial enough to actually hold up breasts with any sort of weight to them and the cups aren’t minuscule so they cover more than just your nipples. I normally wear a 34C and ordered a medium Cosabella Dolce Soft Bra and it fit perfectly… as in my whole breast was covered and they were lifted and separated just like I like them.
Now the fact is that while I’m not exactly flat-chested, I also don’t have massive breasts. If you’re between a B and a D cup, I have no doubt this bralette will be perfect for you. And it’s super pretty and lightweight and perfect for hot summer days.
Also, it’s has tons of great reviews around the Internet so don’t just take my word for it!
