Often when we talk about getting dressed, we focus on the outward pieces—a great fall coat, a cool shirt, maybe some trendy bottoms—but we don't talk enough about undergarments. Personally, I'm a stickler for matching my bra (when I do wear one) to my underwear. It makes me feel like I have my life together, and after taking a peek into my intimates drawer, I realize I only mainly lace bralettes. I'm drawn to the romantic, flirty vibes lace bras evoke, and I know I'm not alone. A quick search on Google shows me many retailers carry a lacy bra or two—where there is demand, there is supply—proving that this style will always be a staple in one's intimates collection. Whether you're looking for a new lace bra or perhaps I've convinced you to buy your very first (do it! you'll thank me later!), check out the best options on the market right now, ahead.

This unlined bralette is sexy—there's no doubt about that. The sensuous lace undergarment comes with under-the-boob cutouts that make it provocative and cool. Note the tiny satin bow embellishments, too.

There's something sexy about wearing a hint of color underneath your clothes, even if no one else can see it.
