The Best Bralette for Healthcare Workers: Comfort, Support & Nipple Concealment All in One
When you’re on your feet for 12+ hours a day, caring for others, the last distraction you need is worrying about if your nipples are showing through your scrubs. While The Elli Bralette was initially designed as an everyday t-shirt bra, helping tween and teen girls and women to feel confident in their bodies, we LOVE hearing how much it helps healthcare professionals like Hannah:
“I work in Labor and delivery at the hospital where we’re issued surgical scrubs - most of the time, they’re super thin, and normal sports bras just don’t cut it! I love wearing the Elli to work! It’s more comfortable than a sports bra and provides a barely there feeling while providing the support needed during [my] shift!” – Hannah
So, what exactly is it about the design of our bralette that makes it so loveable?
Why the Elli Bralette is WAY better than a sports bra
For starters - most sports bras are designed with compression as a way of support. The immediate sigh of relief you feel after pulling them off over your head or unzipping the front is audible and deserving of a glass of wine. Sports bras are meant for high-impact activities, not day-to-day functions. So why do we resort to them regularly?
They’re stretchy, and there’s no hardware or underwires to dig into your skin. Like Hannah said, sports bras just don’t cut it under scrubs. But neither do regular bras that come with even more uncomfortable features like underwires, straps that slip and bands that dig in. And most bralettes are built for fashion, not function.
The Elli Bralette is designed to solve all of this. Its seamless, soft and stretchy material creates that ‘barely there feeling’ that Hannah loves, while providing just the right amount of support – sans compression. The permanently placed nipple concealing petals mean no more foam inserts roaming around in your laundry bin, or little pockets you have to poke your fingers through to rearrange the foam inserts. It’s got straps that don’t slip, a chest band you won’t feel, and nipple concealment for even the sharpest glass cutters.
That’s great! But will the Elli Bralette show through my scrubs?
Simple answer: No. Each Elli Bralette is made of a buttery soft ribbed fabric, and there’s no lace or embellishment. The ribbing of the fabric allows for maximum comfort and stretch without showing through your shirt. You don’t have to take our word for it, though:
“These bras are a must for healthcare workers- so comfy and nothing shows through my scrubs. Total game changer from the sports bras I was wearing before!” - Samara Grimes
Simply put, the Elli Bralette was designed for comfy-cute functionality because a great bralette should never be boring.
