As the world of lingerie keeps evolving in design, style and comfort, wirefree or bralettes for women have become one of the most sort out lingerie pieces this decade and beyond. In days of old with undergarments such as hard-boned corsets, (which Wikipedia describes as ‘a garment to hold and train the torso into a desired shape’) being viewed in modern times as harsh symbols of the past subjugation of women, the evolution of the bra keeps travelling forwards. Designs like the bralette which are wirefree, healthy for the bust and so stylish keep popularity as outerwear because they are just too comfortable and beautiful to remain under clothes while also celebrating the modern female way of life!
The ease of the modern wirefree bras is seen because of the support it gives without the hard wire frame of the more traditional push-up bras. Known to be the wise choice for an active woman of today, this design is popular because it doesn’t constrict the ribcage and lets your upper body move freely while busily engaging in indoor and outdoor activity. Lifestyle blog for the twentysomethings woman, Leisure Martini confirms there is no digging or poking that comes with wearing a bralette, stating it’s so comfortable it can be worn to sleep. What bliss!
Health benefits of wireless styles like bralettes
Women’s health writer from blog ‘Don’t Make Me Blush’ gives us two key reasons why wirefree/bralettes are good for women’s health: comfort and proper lymph node drainage.
Wirefree or bralettes for comfort no matter what size
Well-regarded women’s blog Wellness Mama agrees that no wire bras like the bralette are good for women’s health. They ease skin irritation, shoulder and neck tension and even headaches that cheaper underwire bras can produce. Wirefree bras omit the use of unnatural materials like plastic and metal. Right about now you may be thinking, what about for the larger breasted women? NY Mag has specialists writing why bralettes are good for the petite to plus-sized women. They write that designers ‘employ all things technical into their bralettes like architectural seaming, power mesh and reinforced panels to compensate for the lack of underwire’. For the lacy bralettes, designers make sure to use ‘strong, elasticated lace and a more supportive cup thanks to a three-piece construction, and a three-hook closure to support all bust sizes’. And what about the small chested gals out there? Glamour Mag online suggests not passing on the bralette trend. The well-read magazine says bralettes are perfect for people with small breasts not only because they feel snug, but also because the silhouette frames the natural shape of the bust. The article’s writer says the triangle bralette cup tends to be the most flattering for a smaller chest. No matter what the bust size the woman may have, the trend of the bralette has also brought another important point to light and that is choosing bras to provide a silhouette that celebrates ‘a natural breast shape’. Wikipedia says the rising popularity of bralettes has given rise to a new focus on the athletic body, health and wellbeing. Celebrating your natural body curves is a healthy way to view yourself. And while underwire bras may not be for everyone, because they are designed to create structured positioning that looks different from natural breasts, the wirefree bra trend continues to hail because breasts are beautiful natural not fake.
Wirefree for proper lymph node drainage
The blog - Don’t make me blush reminds us that our body has over 500 lymph nodes, which help to flush out harmful toxins. Some of these are located under each armpit and along the breastbone. So, if your bra has underwire that is too tight there is a chance that fluid may remain trapped in your breasts. While Leisure Martini also backs this notion with similar advice, Wellness Mama blog suggests that when the lymphatic system can’t drain properly it may contribute to breast cancer.
