The Return of the Kestos Bralette

After decades of near-obscurity (at least among the less lingerie-addicted of us), the wrapped style of that classic Kestos bralette is back in season. In many ways, this was the original convertible bra; the wrapped band allowed for wearing with the low-backed fashions that were popular in the 1930s. And in a random bit of trivia, Kestos was the first bra manufacturer to make styles with separated cups. I quite like the aesthetic of this bra, and I'm happy to see it making a comeback. What do you think?

    I just don’t like the strappiness that’s on trend lately. I really want to, and I oddly see why people enjoy it. But it’s not for me.

      This is a really interesting comment because I hadn’t thought of the Kestos bralette as a precursor to the current strappiness trend, but now that you’ve mentioned it, I can see it…especially with bras that have very strappy bands.
