It's funny to think that peek-a-boo bra straps and show-off bras were frowned upon just a few years ago because now a little bra slip is my favorite thing. When you're wearing a gorgeous bralette, you'll want to show it off under shirts. I'll be honest though, it took a while for me to catch on. A combination of being insecure about my less than large chest and the modesty my mother drilled into me stopped me from embracing wearing the underwear as outerwear trend, or at the very least letting a bra strap peek out.
I'm so grateful for the boost of confidence I got around 24, because now my wardrobe is all the more better for it. And those bralettes I used to run from — I love them now. I wear my favorite lacy bralette under a white tee all the time. I've actually gone on a campaign to get my best girlfriend to learn how to show off a bralette. Now, I'm bringing that campaign to you with a round up of the most gorgeous bralettes you'll want to show off under your shirts. These are so gorgeous you may not even want to wear a shirt at all — which is totally your decision to make.
1. A Caged Cutout Bralette For Under A White Tee
These edgy criss-cross straps (on the back, too!) would look amazing under a semi-sheer white tee!
2. A Beautiful Bralette You Could So Wear As A Top
Because this bralette is so intricate and has more coverage than most, you could easily wear this with your favorite cutoffs for a super cool summer outfit.
3. A Criss-Cross Lace Bralette
How many lace bralettes is too many? Because this eyelash lace and strappy back style is calling my name.
4. A Lacy Caged Bralette For Low Cut Tops
With this bra peeking out, there's nothing wrong with taking your v-neck white tee just a little bit lower.
5. A Triangle Bralette With Lacy Cap Sleeve Details
I obviously love the caged straps of this bralette, but I think the unexpected lace cap sleeves are super special, too.
6. An Adjustable Bralette Set You Can Wear Two Ways
This set of two bralettes can be worn as traditional triangle bras, or if you feel like showing off a bit, you can attach the center straps and turn them into choker style bralettes, too.
7. A Gorgeous Bustier Bralette
If subtle is what you want, I don't suggest this bralette — it's a statement top that would look great under a tee or even worn alone.
8. Wear This Sheer Bralette Under Your Loose Tanks
If you have any loose tank tops, layer them over this bralette for a little lacy peek-a-boo style.
9. Show Off With This Mesh Longline Bralette
Just imagine how cute the lace cups and cross straps of this longline bra would look showing through a sheer summery tank — actual perfection!
10. Wear An Open Back Top With This Bralette
Who says the fun is always at the front? A strappy back bra like this one is perfect for open back tops and dresses!
11. Go Bold With A Bright Bralette
If you really want to have a peek-a-boo bralette moment, wear a bright style like this one under a basic white tank — it's my favorite combo!
12. Stretchy Geometric Seamless Bralette For Under Loose Tanks
This strappy style will look cute beneath a relaxed fit tank, and you can grab it in ten more colors, too.
13. Lace Bralette Set For Mixing And Matching
This simple two-piece bralette set has the prettiest scalloped lace edges — for peeking out beneath a lower scoop neck tank.
14. Caged Bralette Set Adds Decorative Support
Love the caged look but hate the constricting feeling? This bralette will feel light and comfortable without losing the cool look of a caged bra.
15. Lacy Bralette For Racerback Tanks
This comfortable bralette is available in a few different neckline styles and a ton of different colors, and it'll look great peeking out underneath a racerback top.
16. Sports Bra With Lace Back
If you don't compromise any part of your workout — including the style of your fitness gear — this gorgeous bralette definitely belongs beneath your workout tank.
17. Minimalistic Strappy Sports Bra For Less Back Coverage
If you like the idea of a decorative sports bra in back but want way less material covering your back, this minimalistic strappy style has it covered.
18. Try Lacy Halter For More Comfortable Support
Halter necks offer a bit more lift and support, so snag this one (in pink, black, nude, and peach, too), if that's a fit you lean towards.
19. Get The Look Of A Bralette With The Support Of A Sports Bra
This pretty bralette is also available in black, grey, white, and pink, and the strappy back will look awesome peeking out from your yoga top.
20. A Trendy Bralette + Choker Combo
This bralette combines two of my favorite trends — lace bralettes and '90s choker necklaces.
