With the spirit of American Thanksgiving this weekend, lets talk about some things I am so thankful for – starting with the trend of slouchy tees. I mean, #momlife, right? It is now totally acceptable to wear something so comfy and loose fitting and call it stylish. Who doesn’t love that- mom or not! But it takes me to my second thing… Thank goodness the bralette has become a trend! There are so many reasons I love this trend and that I hope it doesn’t go anywhere anytime soon. For all you mamas out there, please tell me you understand (and for you non-mamas, this trend is still so amazing and you may laugh at what I am about it say)….
I mean, I don’t know why or how to stop it, but whenever I am out in public and carrying or playing with my toddler, she just has to have her hand down my shirt. Not constantly, but it is like my shirt just becomes a play thing for her to yank on, tug on and pull down. Add the fact that I am often rocking an oh-so-comfy slouchy tee that has the perfect loose neckline for her to tug at…it is just a recipe for disaster.
The bralette to the rescue!
Not only are these so comfortable, un-restricting and really cute, they totally work with toddler life because when my little munchkin wants to tug away at my shirt, I no longer feel like I am exposing the world to my underwear. Instead, it just looks like a cute cami! I love this one from BohoChicBoutique. It is a racerback style with thick straps for the perfect intentional peek-through with any top! This great slouchy tee is from there too!
I always had a pet peeve of bra straps showing but now you can wear those cute slouchy tees and fall-off-the-shoulder sweaters and not to crazy trying to tuck in your bra straps! I love the look of a cute lace bralette peeking out of the shoulder or neckline of a shirt!
A tip for those who are looking at me thinking that a bralette will never be enough to keep everything together – grab one with thick straps and wear it over your bra just like a cami! You’ll get the support that you need and the cute feminine detail that you love! (Just make sure that the straps lay over each other!)
