My tops are made with yarn, which is made with acrylic and other fibers. Although my tops aren't made with padding, they can be worn without a bra or with a stick on bra, such as a silicone bra. Wearing a bra with these tops will be noticeable, but wearing a stick on bra is a way you can wear them while still showing off the design. I have made tops for myself and I prefer wearing a stick on bra with them, but it's up to you. If you find yarn to be itchy on your skin, I do not recommend that you purchase my tops since that is the material they are made of. Thank you for your time in looking at my tops!
