Folks with boobs know that a good bralette is hard to come by. With the launch of Parade’s new bralettes, there’s new hope for the comfy undergarment. 

Insta-famous undies brand Parade was founded by 23-year-old Cami Tellez. It first launched in 2018 and has since become an underwear powerhouse. After the brand’s successful drops (and even a Juicy Couture collab), Parade is now giving fans a line of colorful bralettes in two styles to match their iconic panties. Parade’s new Triangle Bralette and Scoop Bralette are also made from its sustainable re:Play fabric that comes in eight spring-ready colors.

Both bralette styles are affordably priced at $28, but here’s some good news for In The Know, readers. From April 21 through May 4, you can use code ITK40 to get 25% off any Parade order over $40. And yes, you can use this discount on the brand new bralettes!

One of the biggest things to note about this bralette collection is that there are additional sizes to accommodate those with bigger boobs. Cup sizes A through D equate to an XS through a 3XL, and cup sizes DD to DDD/F equate to a Parade size 1,+ 2+ and 3+.

Parade Triangle Bralette review: Parade sent me both styles of the bralette to try out a month before launch. Unfortunately, I didn’t initially understand the sizing and that’s probably why the Triangle Bralette isn’t my favorite. The first time I wore this bra, I thought it fit fine. The more I wore it, the more I could feel my chest weighing the bra down in the front and lifting the band in the back.

My takeaway: I didn’t really feel my sexiest in this bra and I fidgeted with it a little too much for my liking. It was comfortable when I did get it to fit the way I wanted. I chalk it up to picking the wrong size because as soon as I attempted to tighten in the back, it looked like it would have been a sure fit. My advice is to be sure you follow the sizing chart to find your best fit in this bralette, especially if you have bigger boobs.

Parade Scoop Bralette review: My experience with the brand’s Scoop Bralette is a totally different story. After trying this one for a month, this is the bralette that I am ready to buy five more of. In preparation for this story, I found myself wearing this bra on repeat until it was time for it to see the washing machine.

My takeaway: The Scoop Bralette is my ideal combination of comfort and support. My boobs can sit as they are while the bralette keeps them comfortably in place. I wouldn’t call it a sports bra, but more of a comfort bra. It’s the bra you want to wear when you don’t want to go braless, but you also need more support than a barely-there lacy bralette. 

The Takeaway on Parade’s new bralettes

I think there’s a bralette in this line for boobs of all sizes. Even though the triangle bra wasn’t my personal favorite, I still plan on wearing it and even trying a different size. I suffer from hidradenitis suppurativa (or HS for short) and thankfully, neither of the bras irritated the painful wounds under my arms. It makes sense because the bras have an air band which ensures the bands leave no imprint and don’t dig into your sides. 

The fact that there’s a supportive, underwire-free bra option for most chests, but particularly those with larger breasts, is a win for boobs overall. The smooth fabric from Parade is uniquely comfortable and in these times, investing in your comfort is worth it.
