As you are probably aware, T-shirt bras are the essential item to have in your lingerie drawer. They are the most versatile bra style available and they come in different shapes and designs to fit your wardrobe needs. Nude is the most popular colour as it matches your skin tone and becomes nearly invisible under sheer blouses and white tops. Plus, seamless design on most T-shirt bras gives you a smooth apperance when worn under knit sweaters and tight fitting t-shirts. T-shirt bras come in various levels of padding and different cup designs which makes them the perfect bra solution when wearing close-fitting dresses and low cut tops.
Lightly Padded Styles
Lula Lu Petites Delilah Wireless Bra
The Delilah is a lightly padded, wire free T-shirt bra that provides a nice shape without adding much volume. Since it has no underwire, if you wear this under a fitted top, you can avoid the “smiley faces” under your bust that you might get from an underwire bra. Because of the smooth organic cotton fabric and the low cut neckline, the Delilah makes for a perfect everyday bra. Available in 32AAA-36AAA, 32AA, 34AA, 36AA, 38AA, 32A-38A and B cups. If you prefer microfiber over cotton, have a look at the Dahlia Bra, which has the same design as Delilah but is made in a soft microfiber fabric.
Lula Lu Petites Essential T-shirt Bra
The Essential T-shirt Bra offers lightly padded coverage with underwire that is perfect for all day wear and perfect under T- shirts. Made with a super soft microfiber fabric and available in AA and A cups.
Lightly Padded Push-up Styles

Lula Lu Petites Convertible Racerback Bra
The Racerback is a lightly padded style with medium light padding and removable cookies to give you a bit of a push-up effect. The racerback is great when wearing tank tops and since this style has the straps closer together in the back than other styles, it is the bra to try if falling straps are an issue!
