Adriana Lace Bralette

Construction

The Adriana Lace Bralette is a wireless bralette with an all-over lace fabrication. This wire-free bralette features soft cups in lace with vertical seams to shape and contour the bust. The cups are lined for opacity and designed to enhance your natural shape. The wide elastic band is lined in power mesh for firm support. Boning in the band helps to keep the bra from rolling up throughout the day.

Support, comfort, and fit are the core components of this beautiful bralette. The wide straps decked out in lace look pretty peeking out of a top or sweater – no need to hide your straps. The wide cut of the straps offers lightweight padding for shoulders.

The Adriana Lace Bralette can be worn regular or criss-cross with the J-hook at back. The wide band and multi-hook and eye further enhance the fit.

Fit

If you’re looking for a supportive bralette that will support your full bust, this is the bralette for you. The construction and fit of the Adriana Lace Bralette makes it a great bra for everyday wear. It can also be worn lounging or as a sleep bra.

Due to the fabrication, the band of this bralette fits snug. Depending on your preferences, you may want to try your sister size (one band size bigger and one cup size smaller) for the best fit. Additionally, your sister size may also come in handy if you’re looking for a bralette to wear to sleep.

Remember: You don’t want to wear a bra that is too snug to bed. Ideally, you want the bra to feel like a gentle hug around your ribcage while providing lightweight support and comfort for your bust. If the boning and power mesh-lined band is more support than you need, try the Ciara Bralette instead.

This supportive bralette is a stunner on its own or under a favorite top or dress. Wear it at home with the matching panty and a flowy robe, throw it under a slouchy sweater and jeans combo for a cozy weekend look, or let it take center stage under a fitted jacket or sheer top and high waisted skirt outfit for a night out.

The Adriana Lace Bralette is a versatile bralette that you’ll find yourself reaching for year round. It’s available in five colors: Black, Pearl White, Sky Blue, Mulberry, and Raspberry.

The Adriana Bikini is a bikini cut panty in stretch lace and microfiber. If there was one word to describe this panty, it would probably be “comfortable”. It features a sheer lace front panel and smooth microfiber back panel. This comfy style is designed to skim over curves without cutting in or feeling restricting. The waistband stays in place with thin elastic – keeping it from digging into skin. The Adriana Bikini fits true to size with just the right amount of stretch. Overall, the soft lace and microfiber fabrication feels light and airy. The design isn’t seamless, so it may show under fitted clothing, but it works well under loose-fitting dresses and skirts. It’s also a comfy enough to wear to bed and can be paired with the matching Adriana Lace Bralette if you’re looking for a little support while you sleep. Aside from being cute and comfy, the Adriana Bikini is a universally-flattering style that looks gorgeous on all body types.

Care

washing bras

Proper care is crucial if you want your lingerie to last. We recommend washing bras and panties in cold water and avoiding the dryer at all costs. Hand washing lingerie is the gentlest option (as it involves the least amount of agitation), but machine washing on the delicate cycle is also an option if you don’t have time to hand wash. If you do machine wash your bras, be sure to hook them first, separate the colors (bright colors may bleed onto your light-colored bras), and sort them into mesh lingerie bags. Panties should also be sorted by color and placed in separate bags so the bra hooks don’t snag delicate underwear.

To wash, use a gentle detergent or laundry soap designed for lingerie and wash them on a delicates cycle in cold water. Once they’re washed, either hang dry them (drape the center front of the bra over the hanger – don’t hang a wet bra by its straps) or lay them flat to dry (away from sunlight which can cause the colors to fade over time) with the cups facing up.

Lastly, be extra careful when storing your bras. For molded bras, line them up in a drawer with the cups facing up – one bra in front of the other. Unlined bras, bralettes, and non-molded sports bras can be folded in half and stacked on top of each other to save space. Panties can be folded and sorted by color or style in a lingerie drawer.

One last thing…

Education is a big part of my job as a bra fitter. I feel fortunate to be partnering with Parfait on creating lingerie-related content with the goal of helping readers make educated and empowered shopping decisions. There is so much to bra fitting that we can’t cover in a single blog post, so the goal since the very beginning of the blog has been to tackle it one article at a time.
