Best Front Closure Bralettes for all sizes

As a Bra Fitter, I have trouble recommending bralettes to women as there is often a compromise in support. But this article is going to detail what I believe are the Best Front Closure Bralettes for a range of sizes covering teens, lounge wear, something special and strong support categories.

Bralette’s are one of the fastest growing segments in the lingerie industry. Perhaps fueled by the pandemic period that saw people shift away from support bras towards comfort bras. That’s not to suggest that you can’t find supportive bralettes.

Before reading my recommendations, take a moment to scroll through the most common questions we get in store about Bralettes. 

How is a bralette different to a bra?

A bralette is typically produced in XS – XXL sizes, or thereabouts. It is not produced in cup and band sizes (eg 34D) like a regular bra would be. 

Bralettes usually don’t have a lot of adjustability, presenting with either none or one option to adjust. 

Bralettes are always wireless because of their sizing profiles are too simple to allow for cup sizes. 

Are front closure bralettes good for teens?

Bralettes are a great option for teens who are just getting used to wearing a bra. They tend to be softer and lighter to wear than a traditional bra. In a lot of cases they are also cheaper, due to the limited features and sizes available in the bra). 

Front Closure Bras can be good for teens because the hook and eye system is easier for them to become familiar with when it is at the front. 

These reasons make front closure bralettes a good option for teens or first time bra wearers. 

Are bralettes supportive?

Bralettes can be supportive. However, the majority of bralettes are designed with comfort in mind over support. As mentioned above bralettes will almost always have limited adjustability. No adjustability in a bra means that as the fabrics give the support will become compromised. If there is not way to tighten a bra this then becomes a problem. Unless the bralette is designed with nice strong fabrics that resist stretch well, the bralette will not be a highly supportive option for a long period. See our best rated supportive Bralette below – it’s a good one!

Best Front Closure Bralette for Teens

Wacoal B-Smooth Front Close Bralette

This extremely comfortable bralette is just perfect for teens or first time bra wearers. The low seam design means there won’t be all those fiddly bits that can plague teenagers who are new to bras. I also find the sporty look is really well received by young girls in the change room.

Sizes available in this front closure bralette

The Wacoal B-Smooth Front Close Bralette is available in sizes 32, 34, 36, 38, 40 and 42. Which is roughly equivalent to a size XS- XXL. 

This style fits a bit small, so even a petite frame teen will likely find the 32 nice and snug. Teen’s should not be fitted *too* firmly around their ribcage as they are still growing and changing shape regularly.

A near perfect front close bra for teens or those seeking supreme comfort without totally compromising support.
