$47.60 - $68.00
A wide size range and an ingenious mesh overlay on this lightweight, plunging-cupped t-shirt bra have quickly turned this pretty basic into a staff favorite.
Subtly lovely and exquisitely tailored, this lightly molded plunge bra’s overlay panels are made from a cross-dyed, exclusive-to-Journelle, soft, stretch botanical lace.


Seamless mesh, gradually padded cups, side boning and silicone edging on the band offer just the right amount of this-won't-fall-down-when-you're-dancing-up-a-storm.
With its smooth-yet-supple textured molding, corseted boning, and adjustable-all-the-way convertible straps, this strapless is perfectly stay-put gorgeous from a B to a G cup.
Plunging cups, whisper thin molding for perfect coverage, and side boning up to an F cup make this strapless one of our go-to faves. It's been that way for years.

$62.40 - $84.00
