Singapore is hot, especially in recent weeks. No one wants to be sweaty and uncomfortable under their t-shirts and blouses, so the best way to combat this is with a nice, light bra or bralette that gives you the level of support you need in breathable, comfortable material. Look for materials that let your skin breathe, like cotton or jersey — and don’t be afraid to let them show! It’s summer after all. The best part is none of these need to be expensive, here are a few we love that could totally complete an outfit and keep you feeling cool throughout the day.
This sexy piece comes both lined or unlined, depending on what you prefer and is all about celebrating, with its almost glittery lace detailing and criss-crossed straps at the back.
This upgraded version of a favourite design uses 100% cotton lining and featurse a new adjustable band that accommodates any size. The elegant design comes in both a T-back or an inverted V-back so you can pick what suits your wardrobe best.
This local brand knows what it takes to feel good in this climate and this simple combination of mesh, a T-strap back and some sexy floral applique does the trick. Plus there’s still enough soft support and coverage to keep you comfortable.
This racerback in gorgeous maroon is both playful and sexy. There’s even a matching lace underwear to complete the set.
We love the turquoise and purple combination of this piece which comes with adjustable straps and clasp at the back.
This piece is not about subtle sexiness at all with its vibrant wine-coloured lace and scalloped lace. A great piece to play peekaboo with — or not to wear anything on top of at all.
Lingerie brand Eberjey uses only the softest jersey, making this classic Blush-coloured bra instantly comfortable. The lace mesh and subtle tassle gives it just a touch of sexiness.
If you’re looking for a bit more support, this bra comes with removable padding, making it easy to get the comfort and look that you want. It features adjustable slides for the straps as well as a clip in the back.
This piece proves you don’t have to be expensive to be sexy (and comfortable). Made of breathable mesh, this pullover bra is adjustable with a flattering form with a criss-cross back that’s extra fun. It also comes in a wide range of colours.
First of all, the criss-cross straps on the back are gorgeous and add something a little different to a bra. It’s also free from wires and padding and is great for smaller girls looking for something a little sexy.
Cut from jersey with a bit of sexy tulle with tiny stars, this flattering bralette
This retro classic (who doesn’t love the iconic waistbands?) is all about comfort with no wiring and no padding. The cotton-blend makes this bra extremely soft and comfortable, great for all-day wear.
