Everything you need to know about bralettes


The difference between a bra and a bralette is evident in their design and functionality. Bralettes are wire-free, more sexy and more comfortable alternative to a traditional bra. It offers a more relaxed and comfortable fit. Bralettes combine comfort and style, making them a popular choice for those seeking a fashionable and sexy yet comfortable lingerie option.

There are several reasons why people opt for wearing bralettes. Firstly, bralettes provide a high level of comfort. Made from soft and flexible materials, they offer a more relaxed and unrestricted fit compared to traditional bras. The absence of underwire allows for a natural shape and movement, making them ideal for all-day wear.

Additionally, bralettes can boost confidence by offering a lightweight and supportive option that enhances the natural silhouette without sacrificing comfort. They come in various designs and styles, allowing individuals to express their personal taste and embrace their unique sense of fashion.

Furthermore, bralettes can be a great addition to intimate moments. With their delicate lace or alluring patterns, they can add a touch of seductiveness to your lingerie collection, making them perfect for in and outside the bedroom.

Whether it's for everyday comfort or adding a touch of allure, bralettes provide a versatile and stylish choice for any occasion.

Yes, bralettes are designed to offer support and comfort without the use of underwire. While traditional bras often rely on underwire for support, bralettes utilize different techniques to provide a satisfactory level of support. Examples are:

  • Sewing patterns: Many bralettes are constructed with strategic sewing patterns to provide shaping and support where needed. These patterns help create structure and maintain a lifted appearance.
  • Wide underband: Bralettes often feature a wide and elasticized underband that sits snugly beneath the bust. This underband provides gentle yet comfortable support and helps anchor the bralette in place.
  • Quality materials: Bralettes from Pavo Couture are crafted from high-quality fabrics that offer a combination of softness, flexibility, and support. These materials are chosen to provide a supportive yet comfortable experience.
  • Adjustable straps: Our bralettes have adjustable straps to allow you to customize the fit and provide additional lift and support according to your preferences. With this feature, our bralettes are fitted for smaller and larger cups!

It's important to note that the level of support provided by bralettes may vary depending on individual preferences, body shape, and the specific design of the bralette. Some bralettes are better suited for smaller cup sizes, while others offer more support for larger cup sizes. It is recommended to explore different styles and brands to find the bralette that suits your needs best.

Bralettes are known for their exceptional comfort. Whether you're looking for light support or maximum freedom of movement, bralettes offer a comfortable alternative to traditional bras. With their soft materials and relaxed fit, our bralettes provide a cozy and gentle support that allows you to move with ease throughout your day. Experience the comfort and softness of bralettes, and embrace a new level of comfort in your lingerie choices.

There are a few key factors that contribute to the comfortness of bralettes. Firstly, bralettes are typically made with soft and stretchy materials that provide a gentle and cozy feel against the skin. The absence of underwire in bralettes eliminates any potential discomfort or digging into the skin. Additionally, bralettes often have a seamless construction or minimal seams, reducing friction and irritation. The light support offered by bralettes allows for natural movement and breathability, giving you a sense of freedom and comfort throughout the day. Overall, the combination of soft fabrics, wire-free design, and flexible fit make bralettes a comfortable choice for everyday wear.

Yes, we understand that comfort and support are essential for all cup sizes. That's why we also offer bralettes specifically designed to accommodate larger cup sizes. Our bralettes are not only fashionable but also provide the necessary support and coverage for a comfortable fit.

Bralettes for larger cup sizes can be a comfortable and stylish alternative to traditional underwire bras. They provide a more relaxed fit while still offering support. However, it's important to note that bralettes may not provide the same level of lift and shaping as underwire bras. It ultimately depends on your personal preference and comfort level.

Our bralettes are available in XS up to XL to cater to different body types. While specific size availability may vary depending on the design, we offer sizes up to XL or extended cup sizes such as DD, E and F. Please refer to our size chart or reach out to our customer service team for assistance in finding the right size for you.

Yes, older women can definitely wear bralettes to accommodate their changing breasts. As you age, hormonal changes can cause breast tissue to be replaced by fat, making the bust weaker.

The Roxy bralette offers a comfortable and stylish solution, ensuring that you can embrace your changing body while feeling confident and supported.

Bralettes offer endless possibilities when it comes to styling and wearing them. Here are some tips to create fashionable and versatile looks with bralettes:

  1. Use it as a bralette bra: Replace your traditional bra with a bralette under your everyday outfits for a comfortable and relaxed feel. This works particularly well with loose-fitting tops or dresses.
  2. Layer it under sheer or low-cut tops: Pair your bralette with a sheer blouse or a top with a plunging neckline to showcase its delicate and stylish design. The bralette peeping through adds a hint of allure and can be a trendy statement.
  3. Wear it as a crop top: Some bralettes are designed with intricate patterns and beautiful details that make them suitable for wearing on their own as a crop top. Pair them with high-waisted skirts, jeans, or shorts for a chic and comfortable outfit.
  4. Create a layered look: Experiment with layering by wearing a bralette under an open cardigan, a sheer kimono, or a low-cut jumpsuit. This adds depth and dimension to your outfit while highlighting the bralette as a stylish element.
  5. Show it off with backless or open-back tops: Opt for a bralette with an intricate or strappy back design and pair it with backless or open-back tops for an eye-catching and stylish look.

Remember, bralettes are versatile and can be styled according to your personal taste and comfort level. Don't be afraid to experiment and have fun with different combinations to create your unique and confident look.

To keep your bralette in great condition, we recommend washing it after wearing it for 2 to 3 days. Over time, sweat, skin grease, and personal hygiene products can accumulate on the material, so regular washing is important. Here are some guidelines to follow when washing your bralette:

  • Handwashing: We highly recommend handwashing your bralette. Fill a basin or sink with lukewarm water and add a mild lingerie washing soap. Gently wash the bralette in the water, paying attention to any areas that require extra cleaning. Avoid scrubbing or twisting the fabric to prevent damage.
  • Machine washing: If you prefer using a washing machine, always place your bralette in a special washing bag designed for delicates. This helps to protect the bralette from getting tangled or damaged during the wash cycle. Select the delicate or lingerie setting on your machine, and use cold water and a gentle washing soap.
  • Drying: After washing, gently squeeze out excess water from the bralette without wringing or twisting it. Lay it flat on a clean towel and reshape it to its original form. Avoid hanging the bralette as this can stretch the fabric. Let it air dry in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight or heat sources.

Following these care instructions will help prolong the lifespan of your bralette and keep it looking its best.
