Kicking off part 2 of my Dresslink crop top haul is a caged back bralette, sold in black and white, sizes S-XL.

This simple bralette features thin spaghetti straps, padded cup inserts, and a caged cutout back design. It's made of a stretchy cotton and polyester blend of the perfect thickness, and the quality is amazing for the price!

Style-wise, this simple bralette is a must-have piece for layering. It works great with open back, low back, or sheer clothing, and the price is too appealing to resist. It's also comfortable, breathable, and easy to wear, and I honestly can't find any flaws with it!

Next up is a strappy O-ring bralette, originally sold in sizes S-L.

This black bralette is styled after the UNIF Salem bra and features the same combination of triangle cups, elastic bands, and silver O-ring metal accents. The cups are made of a smooth, comfortable, yet fairly thin fabric and are unpadded. Since they're black it's not really an issue, though I'd prefer if the material was thicker.

Style-wise, this bralette looks accurate to Dresslink's photos, and the sizing fits great too, though the straps are a bit loose at the back for me. The fit is quite flattering and the bralette is surprisingly comfortable, and I'm so sad that this is sold out now because I love the look so much and want to buy more of it! It's such a great layering piece, perfect with the straps peeking out from low-cut necklines or showing through under sheer tops.

The third black bralette that I got was a sheer lace bralette, sold in sizes S-XL.

I actually reviewed this same bralette in white in a previous Dresslink review, and although I wasn't quite impressed by the quality, I loved the look and couldn't resist trying out the black version.

This thin, lightweight bralette features adjustable straps, back zipper closure, a scalloped eyelash lace hem, half padded cups, and sheer lace construction. The material is very stretchy and comfortable, though I found the size S to be a bit on the looser side for me.

While I'm in love with the For Love and Lemons-inspired look of this bralette, I wish it had some sort of underwire or fully-padded cups that could give it more support and structure. The style is absolutely gorgeous, and I wish Dresslink could improve the quality of this piece, since I really wouldn't mind paying a few extra bucks for such a lovely look.

And finally, to conclude my 2-part Dresslink crop top review, is a choker-style sleeveless crop top, sold in sizes S-XL and offered in black, white, and nude.

This sleeveless cropped vest features a plunging V-neckline, exposed back zipper, and attached choker design at the neckline. The fabric is thin and doesn't have much stretch, with a soft outside that feels slightly like a lightweight faux suede, paired with a smooth inner.

The fit and style is accurate to the detailed product photos that Dresslink posted, though it's a bit different from the photos on the model, mainly because the neckline isn't as revealing. I think this top would be so much better if it was constructed from a thick, stretchy knit fabric, though the style is super trendy and versatile.

Overall

As I've mentioned in some of my previous reviews, stores like Dresslink with tons of styles at super low prices can often be hit-or-miss, yet I've been pleasantly surprised by the majority of the items I've gotten from them, and navigating through their huge selection of products is quite fun, like a treasure hunt of sorts! This 2-part crop top/bralette haul included some of my favorite pieces from them to date, like the crochet crop top and caged blouse (reviewed in part 1 here) and the caged bralette and O-ring bralette reviewed above!

As always, thanks for reading!
