wardrobe: the simplest bra

pansy

I hate bras.  Don’t you?  But for some of us, support is necessary.  And saggage happens more quickly than you think.  Coopers ligaments lose their elasticity pretty quickly without a bra.  Anyway…

I’ve been a big fan of bralettes lately.  I think bralettes have gained in popularity because women don’t want to be bothered anymore with the fuss of underwire and padding.  We just want to be comfortable.  I’ve been through a few bralettes and my favorite so far  is also the simplest:   the pansy bralette.

It’s made of simply cotton and elastic.  No frills.  And they are made in the USA (made elsewhere is not necessarily a bad thing, don’t get me wrong).  It is as easy to put on and take off as a T shirt and offers a decent amount of support.  They look beautiful and really nail the essence of what a bra should be, I think.  I bought one in olive green and a size large, but next time I think I’ll get a size medium for better compression and lift.  For now, I’m going to make do and will get the elastic bands shortened by a couple inches at the tailor.  Pansy’s instagram pictures are worth checking out; it offers many examples of the shapes and sizes the bralettes can accomodate.
