Two of my favorite pop icons of all time—Rihanna and Madonna—have more in common than stadium voices, tough-and-tender lyrics, and wicked dance moves: they both taught generations of women how to meld personal style and kewl into new classics. Specifically, these two women know how and when to let their lingerie shine through their outwear without looking tawdry.

Inspired by our idols, a group of women here at Hanky Panky, ages 21 to 37, set out to experiment with different ways to wear our Signature Lace bralettes:

  • the Original Bralette (Style No. 112), a soft bralette with no back closure that offers light support and is best suited for smaller-breasted or augmented women;
  • the Crossover Bralette (Style No. 113), which also offers light support but has more décolletage coverage, adjustable straps and, at the moment, comes in 20 colors;
  • the Retro Bralette (Style No. 9K7406), a balconette-style cut with spandex stretch lace for moderate support; and
  • the Glam Bra (Style No. 487544), a soft-cup wire-free bra with back closure, underwire-style seaming, and a supportive stretch-tulle lining for medium-breasted women.

Here are the winning looks:

#1 Under a breezy, white button-down.
