Coming in at a modest 32C and favoring a natural (rather than a padded or push-up) look, my bra of choice is Hanky Panky’s Signature Lace Glam Bra, a soft bra that uses stretch lace cups lined with tulle, underwire-style seaming, and other clever details of design and construction to support and shape without underwire.
But even if you require or prefer underwire bras for your everyday, a well-made, comfortable and pretty bralette is a great option for weekend lounging, layering under tops for an “underwear as outwear” look, or simply to make a set with your favorite Hanky Panky thongs and panties.
If you think there’s a spot in your lingerie drawer for a bralette (or two or three), read on to find the right one for you.
Our Retro Lace Bralette is balconette-style, with adjustable straps but no back closure (sizes extra small to large correspond to band sizes 32 to 38). Underwire-style and princess seams provide greater support and cup shaping than our triangle bralettes.
Soft, pretty, and available in an array of seasonal colors, the Crossover Bralette is a best seller year after year. Best suited to A and B cups and augmented women, the lace trim provides more coverage than our original triangle bralette. No back closure and sized extra small to medium to correspond to band sizes 32 to 36.
The original Hanky Panky triangle bralette in our signature stretch lace. Slips on over your head (no back closure).
A recent innovation on our original bralette, the Removable Pad Bralette is padded and lined with stretch tulle for greater shaping and support.
