It's official: Bras are shirts. And, apparently, underwear are bras, too. Hear us out.

You may already be familiar with the heatwave-friendly trend of shucking off traditional tops in favor of bras (and teeny tiny crop tops). Celebrities like Katie Holmes, Hailey Bieber, and Bella Hadid have offered multiple ways to style the look. But innovative fans of Parade's Internet-famous underwear have created a new way to wear a bra as a top, and, yes, it involves wiggling a pair of underwear over your torso to create a DIY asymmetrical bralette.

Whimsical, creative, and undeniably fun, the savvy styling trick is the embodiment of post-quarantine fashion. And after hordes of people tagged Parade in social media posts featuring the one-shoulder underwear-turned-bra look, the brand took note. And they upped the ante by dropping an asymmetrical bralette inspired by their community's design prowess.

Part of Parade's recent Circus Collection, which features a slew of new colors and patterns, the one-shoulder bralette is made with three layers of the brand's recycled Re:Play fabric. It also has a bit of spandex for stretch and a 100 percent cotton lining for breathable comfort. And unlike the DIY version, the bra comes with a lightweight underboob band for support.

Wear the playful bralette underneath clothes or let it stand alone as a top in its own right. With high temperatures giving hot girl summer a whole new meaning, there's really no need for another layer of clothing. Style it with high-waisted jeans, wide-legged pants, or an asymmetrical skirt to double the drama.

It comes in four colors, including a bright yellow called Liquid Gold and a fuschia pink named Hula Hoop. And if it's anything like Parade's other comfortable bralettes, this asymmetrical one is sure to be your new go-to.

Pick from one of the 10 inclusive sizes available and add the versatile bralette to your cart today. Summer is already halfway through, so take advantage of bras-for-shirts weather while you can.
