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!
