Did you miss me? Hahahahaha. Yay work is done and dusted for the week and I'm going back to staring at pretty bralettes 😍
I thought that since I have time today, I'll do a FAQ post!
Talking to you girls on Shopee chat and Dayre comments are like my favourite things to do. 😅 I feel like a bra consultant…or…support staff. HAHAH. Punny.
But to be honest I think a lot of the questions are pretty legit so I can answer them here and share some of my thoughts as well!
If you have anything you wanna ask can comment also la. 🙈
1. I am quite flat/big. Can I wear bralettes?
It’s actually quite funny cos both the bigger and smaller girls don’t think that bralettes suit them. Perhaps it’s because most of the time we see models or celebrities wear them?
But anyhow, my answer to this is…
Your boob size matters in a sense that you should be thinking about what size to get and not whether you should get. In my opinion, 各有各的美! 💪🏻
For smaller boobs, the bralettes retain their shape better and you can really appreciate the lace and stuff.
Plus, you can totally just wear the bralette and then a pair of high waist shorts/skirt and a jacket and head out cos it doesn’t look obscene! 👍🏻
In fact it looks super cute. I know sometimes it can be scary to wear something that has no padding or support, but bralettes help because they accentuate your beauty. 💎
Unlike push-up bras that provide an illusion, bralettes kind of help you yourself accept your own kind of beauty. That’s the first step to self love!
Sometimes when I wear the lace kena stretched until out of shape haha or like my boob wanna fall out. 😂 So ya! Don’t be scared to wear bralettes k! Also, if you really want something with a little more padding, you can choose from the padded variations! They are also quite nice. My sister-in-law personally loves the ribbon lace. 🎀
Plzzz check out Kendall. Her boobs are not like Kim K huge but still rocking the bralette. Plus look at her wearing it over a tshirt! 😎😎
For the girls with bigger boobs, come, let me answer your question. 💪🏻 So my bra size is about 80C/D depending on like brand. I’m the typical buibui girl la 🙈 so my band size is big, my cup size also big. There are some girls who are small framed but have bigger breasts, so their band size is small and cup size is bigger. 😛
Anyway, so for bigger girls, you’ll find that the bra doesn’t cover your whole breast. 😅 If you’re used to wearing full cup bras, uh, this will be a whole new world. Expect your boob (a circle) to be covered by a small triangle of cloth so you will be able to see alot of exposed flesh la. My judgement is that as long as it covers my nipple area and the band size fits, I will wear. 😱
To illustrate my point pls check out Kim K here and her top. Which is also like a bralette. Obviously her boobs aren't as round and perfect as when she wears those wired bras or when she tapes her nehneh. But I don't think it looks ugly leh. It's just different lor.
But I won't wear out like that la. Cos I'm not Kim k HAHAH. 😅
In conclusion, big boob small boob, all can wear! If you don't know if it's your size, come and chat w me!
I might be slow on weekdays cos I'm working but I will get back to you. If I forget then just ping me again! Haha. Cos I'm a forgetful potato.
2. Nipples how ah? 👀
HAHAHAHA every time you girls ask about this I want to cackle. Cos you all sound so sheepish and funny. 😂
Ok but truth is, I don't care one la. I will just wear the bralettes. Cos my nipples are generally soft so when the bralette stretches over it it flattens out la hahaha.
If you have harder or pointy nipples then you can consider getting padded bralettes!
Alternatively! You can use nipple stickers to cover your nipple.
Nipple tapez. Got the silicone kind and this kind! Haha I prefer this kind cos the silicone kind makes my nipple look like it has a bump?
Anyway if you all need, I'm selling the nipple tape for like 88 cents LOLZ cos huat ah!!
3. Will my boobs become saggy if I don't wear padded bras?
I've been wearing non padded bras for like the last…6-7 years??
Haha but I don't see any difference in my boob perkiness 😂
There are quite a lot of different theories as to why boobs sag so I can't really exactly say why…
But some people say that boobs sag cos you never give it support. Others say that the boobs sag cos you give it support then it lose its own strength to be perky.
So…I honestly don't know 😂
4. What size are you and what bralettes can you wear?
I'm an 80C/D and I can wear most of the bralettes on Shopee, except for the ones with plastic clasps. But really depends and varies so best if you ask me!
I'm intending to get more of my friends to help answer your question because I'm not really a good reference point, especially if you're a petite size.
But yes! Don't doubt the free sized bralettes. They really can stretch. A lot! 👍🏻👍🏻
5. When can I wear the bralette?
My answer to this is…anytime anywhere hahaha.
I know of a lot of girls who think bralettes are only for ~sexytime~ or for sleeping in. But honestly, I wear it wherever I go la. But also maybe cos I don't wear bras when I sleep so I like to ~hangloose~ 😂
The only time I would say you shouldn't wear a bralette is when you're doing vigorous exercise cos..lol later your boob fall out from the cup. 😂😂
Which has happened to me before but uh just discreetly shift it back into place. Nobody will know…I think?? 😂😂😂😂
This question was asked by @mascarasmudges and quite a few other girls! I honestly think you can wear it anywhere. Heck some girls even wear it as a top. Especially for the midi designs.
So yeah! Ahaha. If you're insecure, nipple pasties to the rescue 💪🏻 Plus, bralettes come in damn a lot of cutting which is super awesome when you have tops of diff designs.
For example the A-shaped top tied and the new midnight bralettes will match narrow shoulder tops so you don't have to wear strapless bras (as a big boober I hate strapless bras).
Then also cos the bralettes usually have a damn thin back band as compared to normal classic bras that tapered off, it looks nicer even if it is revealed. Heck, sometimes with bralettes people WANT to show it off. So you don't have the problem of revealing your nude Aunty bras hahaha. Uh I love Aunty bras.
6. How come no cleavage?
I've gotten quite a few questions on why the bralettes look so weird when worn and why there's no cleavage.
I have C/D cup boobs and when I wear bralettes, I don't always have a cleavage too. 🙈
I think a good reference point or like a good expectation management process will be to look at your own body in the mirror when you're not wearing a bra. If your boobs aren't naturally pushed together or if you don't have a natural cleavage(most girls don't) chances are the bralette won't help you.
I think a lot of girls expect to look like that when wearing a bralette but nope. HAHAHAHA. Sorry I don't this ever happens without surgery or unless you're very lucky to have perky, round boobs that are set very very close together.
Most of the time, boobs are wide set because of gravity and also because they are made of almost 100% fat. Best friend @chenshiqi and I have verified this haha. We both don't have small boobs, but we don't always have cleavage too.
In reality it's gonna look more like this haha. You can see the natural curve of the boob without seeing the harsh line in the middle which is the cleavage.
I think it takes some getting used to, but it's also another kind of beautiful. Also, please note that the model also has some armpit fat, which is completely normal and natural. 🙈
I think bralettes help you embrace your natural shape and curves while a bra tries to mould you into a typical form of beauty.
Both are not wrong!
Just that one is more comfy. I definitely see the appeal of wearing bras as well, just that I really cannot be bothered to put myself through discomfort in order to achieve that cookie cutter kind of beauty. But for the days I feel like I need more oomph or more BOOBALICIOUS I will wear a wired bralette 💪🏻
Check out Kourtney kardashian! Her boobs also far apart!
If the kardashian sisters have wide set boobs, we mere mortals cannot complain 😭😂😂😂😂
Kidding la. But I think she still looks nice and not as "fake" or uppity as when she wears those huge push up bras. 💪🏻
