Bandeaux and bralettes are coming out from undercover as stylish summer tops. And with the recent wave of hot, humid weather, I’m all for wearing as little clothing as I can possibly get away with! Bring on the crop tops, cutouts, plunging necklines and airy, open armholes.

Here are a few of our favorite styles:

Hanky Panky Signature Lace Bandeaux

Signature Lace Lined Bandeaux

Our Signature Lace Lined Bandeau is lined in soft mesh, has a trendy longline silhouette and soft, gripper-free brushed elastic to keep it in place. It looks great with high rise shorts and a blazer, or with high rise flares. It can be worm on its own, or, if you prefer a little more support, you can easily layer it over a more utilitarian strapless bra. Available in Black, White, and Chai, in sizes XS to L.

The Hanky Panky BARE Bralette is a soft, stretchy opaque knit bralette with a scoop neckline. Fits modest bustlines (AA to B cups) best. It’s great under a sheer blouse, or even worn layered with one of our contrasting lace bralettes, like Gwen Stefani’s fashion line L.A.M.B. showed at their Spring 2015 fashion week presentation.

A great fitting bralette for A to C cups, the Retro Lace Bralette is available in a selection of solid colors and print, and in sizes XS-L. The high spandex content of our retro lace gives you a little more support, and the vine and leaf-patterned lace has a nice amount of coverage. Try it under a sheer blouse or scoopneck tank with low armholes.

Hanky Panky Signature Lace Lined Crop Tank

Our Signature Lace lined crop tank makes a great summer top or layering piece. Try it with bike shorts and a high-waist flared skirt for a feminine and sporty look. After the weather gets cooler, wear it layered with an open-necked top and joggers for a cute weekend look.

The original designs were the inspiration for the company name, Hanky Panky. Blending traditional with modern glam looks, Hanky Panky is a fashion favorite of countless celebrities.
