While I certainly don’t mind wearing a strapless bra (this one is my go-to), I’d definitely go without one if I had the choice. Most of the time that is not an option for me, considering my busty top half. That’s why I was so thrilled to discover this top had a sewn-in bralette! It’s sort of like the ones you find on a workout top – it’s a tighter strip of fabric that contains and supports your boobs so you don’t have to wear or fidget with a bulky strapless bra. Genius! This top really is the most comfortable, no fuss “going out” top I own at the moment. I love the effortless one-shoulder silhouette, simple ruffle and soft jersey fabric. Like this white top I also own by Susana Monaco, it is only fitted at the bust and then flares out for a flattering no-hug fit at the waist.
While my top is nearly sold out in every size, Susana Monaco created a similar top with only one detail changed: the fit of the waist. This top features a fitted waist, perfect for tucking into jeans, skirts and shorts this spring/summer season. For those of you who prefer to show off your waistline, this top is the one for you! I can’t share whether or not this other top has a bralette like the one I do, but regardless, it’s such a versatile, irresistible piece!
Also, my apologies for the almost radio silence on Instagram and SnapChat this week – being on jury duty really takes it out of you! Hopefully things will get back to normal ASAP. In the meantime – I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
