eberjey bralette

for the longest time i have worn these t-shirt bras without really thinking if they remotely fit my shape or size. i don't know a lot about bra rules, but i have to think that underwire is kind of pointless when your chest is on the smallish side. if underwire is meant to play a very supportive role, should i really be wearing it if there's nothing much to support?

i ordered a couple triangle bralettes (thanks for the tip emily!) and immediately tossed my underwires out the window. the lace is fantastically not-at-all itchy and i don't mind one bit if it pokes out of my button-up.

who am i kidding? bras are merely an extra layer of warmth in the winter and sometimes non-existent in the summer. these are perfection for those of us less endowed.

cheers, my small-chested friends!

nice! i live in the american apparel stretch lace bras and joke that i've been wearing training bras since age 10. cheers is right!

YES! I have a really hard time with bras in general they seem to cut into me and the idea of wearing something that could potentially cause all sorts of endocrine issues keeps me away from the things. having breast infections after baby #2 was also a clincher for me.

I think they are lovely

these are lovely and your reasoning is spot on. I came to the same conclusion about underwire not too long ago and have been rocking simple cotton bras from American Apparel ever since. No looking back. Granted, lace is prettier.

pretty lace bras without padding, wires, and thick straps make me wish i was just a tiny bit less *ahem* endowed.

there is something very wrong about wearing wires under your breasts all the time.

I worked at a lingerie shop when I first moved to SF and had to slowly be converted to less bulky bras–I was convinced that a little nipple showing was inappropriate, and that bras should protect your girls. Then one day, another sales girl said to me, "Wouldn't it be weirder if you didn't have nipples at all?" and I abandoned most of my lined bras for ladylike frippery!

These look perfect. Cheers to small chested ladies is right :)

I recently read an article that talked about a study saying that bras actually CAUSE breasts to sag - because supportive tissues don't have to do any work when you're wearing an underwire so they just deteriorate (basically). So, not wearing a bra - or just wearing something really light like these little beauties - will actually keep your girls at attention as you age!

Although - I'm a DD, and while no bra may keep the girls from reaching my belly-button by the time I'm 50, there's no way I could go without - they'd flop all over the place! And forget running to catch the streetcar!

I love those bras too, but as soon as I put a pretty bra on, I feel obligated to wear the matching underwear. Sometimes, it's just too much for a boring day of work or errands. Does anyone else have this issue?

These bras were very comfortable for my daughter. I definitely recommend them for tween. Good value for money and good assortment of colors. i purchased at http://www.apparelnbags.com/barely-there/index.htm
