Beautiful Bralettes: Why Female Backpackers Should Leave Their Bras At Home

Travelling the world opens up so many new and exciting opportunities. Not only can you experience one-in-a-lifetime moments, but you have the chance to meet people from different cultures, make friends from across the globe, push yourself harder and have the opportunity to get to know who you really are, away from the traditional 9-5 grind. 

Choosing to go backpacking is an incredible decision and one that requires careful planning. And as a backpacker, the last thing you want to be worrying about is uncomfortable clothes, how quickly they dry and whether or not you have something suitable to wear for a specific occasion. Space in your backpack is limited and precious, which is why it’s important to only bring items that are comfortable and versatile. I’m talking of course, about the bralette.  

More female backpackers than ever before are ditching traditional bras and underwear for pieces that have comfort and versatility in mind. No more feeling uncomfortable whilst sightseeing, or panicking when the underwire in your bra gives out – with bralettes, you can focus on enjoying every second of your trip overseas, soaking in the atmosphere, visiting all those places you always dreamt of and living in the moment. In this post, we’ll explore why female backpackers should leave their bras at home and opt for beautiful bralettes.  

They’re Incredibly Comfortable

All women are familiar with how uncomfortable traditional bras can be, and when you’re travelling long distances, and potentially walking miles with a rucksack on your back, the last thing you want is to feel discomfort and pain whilst your straps dig in or the underwire cuts into you. With a bralette, you don’t have to think about these things. 

Traditionally made from breathable and soft fabrics, the bralette conforms to your shape and is soft against your skin. So you won’t have to endure long, hot bus rides with your bra pinching your skin. And as they’re pad-free, you won’t have to worry about boob sweat or having heavy padding to content with.  

They Can Be Worn Anywhere

Thanks to their versatility, bralettes can be worn just about anywhere! Making them perfect for travelling with. Whether you’re relaxing in your accommodation, catching a flight, or you’re putting together an evening outfit with a tailored suit jacket, the bralette can provide you with multiple style options and still keep you comfortable! 

They Can Be Packed Easily

As mentioned before, the space available in your rucksack is limited, and when you pack multiple bras for your trip it’s important to keep them from getting squashed by other items so they keep their shape and don’t become ruined. With bralettes, they fold up incredibly small, and you don’t have to worry about them disappearing underneath your flip-flops, first aid kits, t-shirts and other items you’ve collected on your journey – you can pack with ease

Final Thoughts…

As a female backpacker, there’s a lot more to think about than just jumping on a plane and exploring the world. And it’s true that women have many more concerns than men when travelling the globe. But, if you pack the right items, your underwear doesn’t have to be one of them.
