Built-in Shelf Bras

All of our tops and dresses feature our signature built-in shelf bra for light support and throw-on-and-go style. Each shelf bra is constructed with a four-way stretch fabric and can be worn with or without a bra underneath, depending on your preference and what kind of "girls" you're working with! Our shelf bras are built-in for comfort, so while we don't suggest wearing them to run a marathon, we do suggest wearing them everywhere else!

Bamboo's Unique Features & Benefits


Bamboo fabric is extremely soft to touch and often times compared to cashmere for its luxurious qualities.


Bamboo naturally has antibacterial qualities which bamboo fabric is able to retain even through multiple washes. This helps to reduce bacteria that often thrive in clothing causing unpleasant odors.


As a plant, Bamboo is highly water absorbent which translates to bamboo fabric having excellent wicking ability. Bamboo absorbs moisture away from your skin and helps keep you dry.


Bamboo thrives naturally without any pesticides or fertilizers and requires little irrigation aside from rain water. Bamboo is sustainably harvested by cutting, not by uprooting, and regenerates very quickly.


Bamboo fabric is naturally insulating and breathable, its fibers keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.


Bamboo fabric can block up to 97.5% of harmful UV rays helping to protect your skin during outdoor activities.

Made in L.A.

NICOLE ALEX garments are designed, fit and sewn in Los Angeles, using ethically-sourced, eco-friendly fabrics. All fabric is laundered and preshrunk prior to production, resulting in garments that maintain their fit throughout multiple wears and washes. We have partnered with a family-owned and operated manufacturing facility that’s just minutes from our Los Angeles headquarters, so our creative team is able to be on site to oversee the production process from start to finish.
