I do not have big breasts a bit, but I have the widest rib cage in the world, so bra shopping never had fun (not that it sounds fun if you are also blessed, but I digress). Ever since my first workout bra was purchased around the age of 12, I absolutely hate wearing bras. Like most women, I spend my days at work dreaming of that glorious moment when I can undress at home and hurl my rimmed death trap across the room like a slingshot. , let my girls roam freely for the rest of the night. I thought it was my destiny to waste my existence, wishing that this day would end, until I found Calvin Klein cotton bralettes.
Now, I don’t live under a rock; I’m not new to bralettes as a concept. I know there are plenty of options out there, from lace trim options to options made with sweat-wicking materials to support workouts. But this Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Racerback Bralette ($21, originally $30) was what quickly became my holy grail and I swear in front of all these witnesses to love them forever. I mentioned they are also marked as part of Great Amazon Memorial Day Sale? Trust me; You’ll want to add this comfortable bra to your digital shopping as soon as possible.
It all started with a photo on Instagram (as most revelations these days do). I spotted my cousin wearing one of these simple bras as a bra (to go to the club, because she’s young and stylish, not a ripe 97 like me) . She looked so comfortable, so I immediately texted her to ask where she got it while also subtly begging her to pass hers on to me. She told me she bought this bra at Urban Outfitters, so I went to its Instagram page, and you know what, these bras popped up in two or three out of 10 its most recent photo. I took it as a sign of a trend, urged myself to get out of bed early on a Saturday morning (OK, it’s supposed to be 11 a.m.), and drove straight to the store, where I bought a colored CK bralette. black, to match my soul.
It was a deep and passionate connection from the very first wear, and our breezy romance has only grown stronger since then. (I’m pretty sure my boyfriend suspects I have more intense feelings for these bras than I do for him.) Filled with excitement, I couldn’t resist capturing the moment with By taking the photo above, happily share my new-found fascination with this particular bra with my Instagram followers. Comfort and support are impeccable; dream fusion held in just enough but also very free.
It’s been about four glorious months since I started my journey with this bralette (time really flies when your breasts feel released). Since then, my collection has evolved into two more colors (white and gray because neutrals are life). I haven’t missed a day without wearing one of them – except for the unfortunate occasion when I needed a strapless style. Let me tell you, as soon as I squeezed myself into that constricted machine, I wanted to cry. If you’re like me, the moment of freedom that comes from swinging a bra over your head like a noose after hours of confinement is simply unparalleled. So why live like a prisoner again? Join me in this pure bliss, won’t you?
