If you're looking for a comfortable bra, then the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette is the perfect choice for you. Women love how comfortable the bra is when they're out and about. It feels great along your skin, no worries about rubbing and chafing. It's fantastic all the way around.

The problem, however, is that it doesn't have very much support. If you're looking for something to wear to the gym or for a workout, this might not be the best option for you. It is, after all, a bralette, not a sports bra. Just because it looks like one doesn't mean that it is. Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette might be able to handle some low impact workouts such as yoga or Pilates, but nothing much more than that.

If you are just looking for something to wear casually, then this is a great bra. It has an affordable price and decent durability. Women love the bralette and would recommend it to their friends and family.

Lack of support

Terrible for gym use


Customers rave over how comfortable the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette is. The materials are super soft and feel great along your skin. The band is thick and stretchy, sitting comfortably under your bust. There's no risk of irritation from the materials rubbing along your skin.

It does go on over your head so it can be a bit difficult and uncomfortable to put on. Then again, it can usually be a struggle trying to get something like this one without getting twisted in it. It's not a big deal but can sometimes get annoying.

Overall, it is an exceptionally comfortable bra that women adore. If you're looking for something to wear while lounging around the house this is the perfect option!


The Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette is, after all, a bralette. It is not a sports bra and therefore, cannot handle a trip to the gym. Don't let the look of the bra fool you. Just because it looks like a sports bra, doesn't mean that it works like one.

The Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette would be able to handle some light impact workouts, like Pilates, yoga, or walking, but that is about it. If you want to participate in any higher impact exercises, like running, biking, or Zumba, you might need to find a better bra.

This bralette is perfect for your everyday activities, however. If you want something comfortable to wear around the house to run errands, this will be a great choice. If you need a little support but don't want to deal with the hassle of an underwire, then you might want to give this one a go.

Unfortunately, it just isn't designed to be worn in the gym, especially if you have more massive breasts.


The support you get from the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette is questionable. If you are looking for something to wear while lounging around the house and aren't planning on doing anything super active, then you will get enough support. However, if you're doing any kind of physical activities, then you will need something with more support.

It isn't a sports bra, as it appears, it is a bralette. This means that it isn't going to give you much support, especially when it comes to working out. If you need something for high impact workouts, there are much better options to choose from.

The bralette itself has thick straps and a racerback which helps with support. It also helps increase the overall comfort level of the bra.


Calvin Klein uses a blend of durable and comfortable materials in the makeup of the Modern Cotton Bralette. The blend consists of 53% cotton, 35% modal, and 12% elastane. The use of modal, mixed with the cotton and elastane gives you incredible durability in the bra. Modal is a type of rayon and provides the materials a silky and stretchy feeling for optimal comfort.

The materials that make up the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette are rather thin. Yes, it's comfortable, but some women have problems with how thin it is. If you're comfortable going out in public with only a lightweight bra covering your breasts, then you shouldn't have any issues with this one. It doesn't bother a lot of women, but it is worth noting.


Breathability is essential when you are talking about your clothing. You want to make sure that you can get a decent amount of air flowing through the materials to try to keep you cool and dry. You don't want your skin to feel like it's suffocating under the materials, causing you to overheat.

You do not have to worry about that with the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette. The use of cotton, in and of itself, is pretty breathable, but take into consideration that there is modal used in the blend as well and it makes it even better.

The cotton will allow air to flow through the materials, bringing you a cooling breeze, but the modal will help keep you dry. Cotton generally absorbs moisture really well and retains it for a while, so you would typically be stuck running around all day with a sweaty and wet bralette. Thanks to the addition of modal, this becomes a non-issue. It doesn't trap sweat or odor, keeping you dry and fresh longer.


There are mixed reviews on the longevity of the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette. Most women find that it can hold up quite well and have had no problems at all with premature wear and tear. On the other hand, there are quite a few who didn't have the same experience.

Most of the durability issues, it appears, comes from women with bigger breasts. It seems that the thin material and elastic band cannot handle the heft of the larger breasts. This isn't something that every woman experiences, but it's something to keep in mind when making your purchase.

The Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette has a bit of stretch to it, thanks to the modal and elastane in the materials. Thankfully, the bra is known to keep its shape reasonably well. You won't have to worry about it stretching out over time and losing its shape. That said, there are some women who commented that it would loosen up a little throughout the day, but not by a lot. However, when you wash it, it gets its shape back, and it is as good as new.


When you are wearing anything during your workouts, including your bra, you can be sure that it is going to get saturated in sweat. Over time, if you aren't keeping it clean, it will start to smell. To ensure you are staying clean and fresh smelling you will want to wash the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette regularly.

Thankfully, it is machine washable, so keeping it clean is super easy. You can wash it in cold water with no problems. You can even tumble dry it, as long as you stick to low heat. Keep in mind that the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette does use cotton, so there is a risk of it shrinking in the dryer. Pair a regular wash schedule with a high-quality deodorant and your Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette will stay fresh for a very long time!


The Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette has a pretty reasonable price tag, which is much appreciated by many women. Sometimes it can be hard to find a nice bra with an affordable price tag, but this one fits the bill.

For the most part, the bralette is durable, so there shouldn't be any issues with it falling apart. This means that it will stay part of your wardrobe for quite a while — no need to spend more money replacing the bra until you need to.

It is super comfortable; women love the way it feels. The problem, however, is that it doesn't have the best support. If you can get past the lack of support, the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette is a great value and would make an excellent choice in bra.

Many women choose to buy multiples. They prefer to get the bralette in multiple colors so they can have a variety. It's always nice to have a couple of backups so you can have something to wear on laundry day.


The Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette has an excellent style that customers love. It has thick straps and a racerback for added comfort and support. It features ribbed banding at the edges and a scooped neckline for a great look.

The bralette is available in a plethora of colors so you can pick one, or more, that best suits your wants and needs. You can select from solid colors or something with designs. The solid colored options include a black (with a black waistband), grey heather, nymph's thigh, white, black (with a white waistband), or manic red. Some of the dual color options are Marlow (red and blue), blue and gold, garnet red and gold, orange and white, red and black, or grey heather and red. Finally, the options you have if you are looking for a print are floral burnout blue, watercolor animal and bleach out, floral burnout pink, camo, floral burnout Aurielle, stripe multi, scattered posy and grey heather, pride stripe, or simple stripe and siren song.

Regardless of what color you choose, each bralette features an elastic band with a repeated Calvin Klein logo embroidered around it. This is something that many people come to expect when purchasing anything from this brand.


When ordering a bra of any kind, you want to make sure that you are getting something that fits you properly. After all, if you have an ill-fitting garment, then you will most likely experience discomfort. No one wants to be uncomfortable because their bra doesn't fit them correctly. The Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette is no different.

This bralette is running a little on the large side, so this is something that you'll want to keep in mind when making your order. There is a size chart available for you to take a peek at so you can try to make sure you're getting to correct bra. However, customers have said that even according to the chart, the product was a little big. Women recommend getting a size smaller than the table suggests to make up for this discrepancy.

When you first put the bra on it might feel a bit snug, but it tends to loosen up a little through the day. The problem is that many women will get a bra that first them great from the get-go, only to find that by the end of the day it is too loose and they lose the little bit of support they had.

The problem that women have with finding the right size for the perfect fit is that the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette's sizing is not like most bras. They're available in extra small through extra large and 1X, 2X, and 3X. This is why it's essential to check out the chart, so you can figure out where your bra size lies for the optimal fit.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a highly comfortable bra for lounging around the house, then the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette might be the perfect option for you. Customers rave about how pleasant it is, some going as far as saying it's the most comfortable they've every word.

That said, it doesn't offer a lot of support. It might look like a sports bra, but it isn't. If you are looking for something to wear to the gym, there are far better options out there that will give you the support that you need.

The Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette has an affordable price tag and decent durability, making it an excellent option for most women. It's a great all-around bra that women love!
