Guest Blog Post: Jenny Altman on Perfect T-Shirt Bras

Sheer and lightweight tees and tanks all have one thing in common – they need a great t-shirt bra!

The t-shirt bra is the modern girl’s go-to bra of choice…and why? There is no show through. It is like your trustworthy BFF that works with everything. It may not be the most sexy bra in your drawer (although it can be tres pretty), but it makes your boobs look good and keeps you modest even in the coldest of places.

Here are my go-to t-shirt bras for summer and back to school:

Sunnie is my #1 basic t-shirt bra. She is full-coverage (but not too much), has stretch for comfort, is lightly lined (no show through!) and hides the back-fat (well, we all have some!). She’s paired here with our Love Me Don’t Retouch Me tee for the perfect comfy and confident look!

Charley is my new BFF. She conceals, has a deep plunge for low tees and tanks, gives great push up and even has a super secret j-hook in the back, instantly transforming her into a racerback bra. Plus her colors are amazing! I love the cotton Charley in light grey with the neon yellow trim! It pairs perfectly with the neon stripe Charley tee!

Blakely is a longtime fave, especially with pretty lace detail. She is a great lightly lined demi-cup which gives coverage and a full, rounded shape. Her solid colors are amazing (with contrast lace detail!) and her allover lace shows you that t-shirt bras don’t have to be boring. The lace is flat and smooth so it still works under tees, but looks much fancier than your go-to nudes.

Jaclyn is your smoothest, softest pushup bra with underwire. She is the perfect t-shirt bra (so smooth, everything just glides over her) with built in pillows around the wire (seriously!). She feels dreamy and lovely even while doing her job of pushing you up to perkiest perfection! I love the ombre colors, too. Check out the lilac with two tone purple lace around the band.

The Go-To Girls Bra Collection

Bras and best friends have a lot of similarities. We’re serious…think about it! You depend on them to keep your outfit in check. You take care of them! They provide support when you need it. Okay,  so maybe the analogy ends there…but you get the point.

This season we’re focusing on the basics that every girl needs to complete her bra wardrobe from Multi-Way and Strapless Bras to Lightly Lined or a va-va voom Pushup! The Go-To Girls include Bridget, Charley, and Blakely…all priced at $20! Read on below to learn a little bit more about each.

Crystal and Rachelle are wearing our newest bra, Charley! Perfect under v’s and scoops, Charley is a plunge bra with just enough pushup to add a subtle lift. In the center (or the gore) of the bra, there is a key ring that let’s the cups swivel with your body. This works seamlessly with the j-hook in the back for when you want to convert her into a racerback!

Blakely is back with new pop color lace details as your go-to lightly lined bra. Her soft cotton cups offer demi coverage and is perfect to pair with your favorite tee. What we love? Her neon vintage lace side wings. Go ahead, show her off under your summer tanks!
