Top Bra Picks for Every Style

by Lakeysha-Marie

How often have you selected the perfect outfit and wondered: "What bra am I going to wear under this?" Better yet: "Am I supposed to wear a bra with this?" From full coverage bras to barely there adhesive cups, there is a vast array of lingerie to keep your look together under almost any style. Whether its added support or subtle enhancement you seek, here are a few guidelines for selecting the best bra styles.

Tees, Lightweight Knits & Body Hugging Tops:
Smooth seamless bras, also referred to as “t-shirt bras' look best under these styles. Lacy bras, bow details, and ruffles will create an uneven surface across your bust.

Spaghetti Straps & Strapless:
Bulky bra straps look tacky with thin straps & strapless styles. A good strapless bra in nude or black is a lingerie essential. This bra allows you to wear sexy styles without sacrificing support.

Deep V Necklines:
To pull off these styles, you will want to select a bra where the cups are joined by a thinner band near the bottom of the bra. These bras are commonly referred to as “plunge' or “cut away' bras.

Low-Back and Backless styles:
Backless bras are the perfect solution for these styles. The supportive straps loop around the armhole, eliminating the annoying band displayed across your back. Stick on cups and adhesive bras are other great alternatives.

T-backs and Tanks:
Racer-back bras look best under these sporty styles. The shape of the bra mimics that of the style being worn.

Halter Tops & Asymmetric Styles:
Convertible bras tend to be the best solution for these styles. Straps can be easily be adjusted for halter necks and one-shoulder styles.

Lingerie invisibly shapes our body-line underneath the clothes we wear. Selecting the correct bra style ensures you get the look you want, with the support you need. This alone can make the difference between looking basic or breathless.
