There’s nothing sexier than a glimpse of lacy lingerie beneath a velvet blazer or under the low arms of a slouchy tank. But if you’re one of those people who find the unlined, wireless style of a bralette a bit too flimsy, it’s time to rejoice.
When it comes to worn-to-be-seen lingerie, longline bralettes are everywhere at the moment. Kylie Jenner was spotted wearing a baroque Versace number on a date night with Travis Scott, while fashion’s newest ‘it girl’ Sofia Richie let hers peek out from under a sparkly crop top at a Harper’s Bazaar party in New York.
It’s a trend we’re fully sold on here at Pour Moi. With great uplift coming from the underband, a longline bra will give you that gorgeous bralette look without the need for gravity-defying B-cup boobs to pull it off. Even better, Pour Moi’s longline bras have underwiring so you get a supported, defined look with no squished-together mono-boob in sight.
In short, supportive longline bras can help you feel comfy, look sexy and show off your fashion credentials, all at the same time. Now there’s just one question. How will you wear yours?
How to style a bralette...
With high waisted shorts or a skirt
If you’re looking for an on-trend style that ticks all of the fashion boxes, pair your bralette with a pair of your favourite shorts or a skirt for an ultra-glam look. It’s a casual outfit that’s perfect for a date night or cocktails with your girls. We love how Georgia Bayliss and Sian Owen style our Amour Accent Longline Bra on their girls night out below...
Under a sheer lace top
Sheer lace tops always look gorgeous but have a reputation for being tricky to wear. The Rebel longline bra could be the answer to a lace-lover’s prayers! Available in a range of colours, choose one in the same shade as your lace blouse for a demure daytime look. But for something more edgy, go for a clashing hue - a black longline lace bralette under white sheer lace looks particularly striking. Pair with high-waisted, wide-leg trousers for a look to wear to any smart event.
Under a cashmere jumper
Cashmere jumpers feel super snuggly and comfy but there’s no reason they shouldn’t look sexy too! Choose knitwear that has a deep V or an off-the-shoulder neckline and wear it with the Eclipse longline bra underneath. Skip the scarf and let the lace mesh highlight your neck and frame your bust. The insert is really clever, because it creates a visual plunge without sacrificing any of the coverage. That makes it look daring, but not so revealing that you can’t wear it out to brunch with the girls.
Under a slip dress
If our Instagram feeds are anything to go by, slip dresses are still very much a thing. And now we can finally stop worrying that everyone can see our bra underneath - because we’ve made a feature out of it! The Viva Luxe longline bra is sturdy and supportive, and gives just as much coverage as a going-out top (plus the mesh panels are really cool)l. Available in three colours (white, black and khaki) you can go out feeling safe and secure, knowing you’ve got something substantial under that flimsy, ethereal slip dress.
Under a shirt dress
Shirt dresses are everywhere right now and they make the perfect fashion statement! We love how India Reynolds styles our Opulence Bralette with a pretty satin dress on her night out. The gorgeous bralette features pretty embroidery and fastens at the front making it the perfect style to show off.
Under a side-open top
Give a sporty or rock-chick tank top a flirty edge by letting the Sensation longline bra play peek-a-boo under the low arms. Forget worrying you’re going to flash side-boob everytime you raise your arm. Sensation will keep everything securely covered, while its contrasting lace adds a gorgeously feminine touch. It’s a great way to oh-so-innocently show your sexy side on a casual night out with someone you’d like to impress.
