Not all outfits call for a strapless bra, but the ones that do need a good one! Made specifically for all those shirts and dresses where seeing a bra strap just can’t happen, strapless bras offer a bit of support and lift that covers only what you need. Below, we have gathered together our favorites to help you flawlessly pull off almost any look.
What to Consider When Purchasing Strapless Bras
A strapless bra should not only fit well but also make you feel good. Consider these few points to help make sure you find the right one:
- Size: Some bras don’t have to fit perfectly – strapless bras are that exception! In order to stay in place and cover everything correctly, a strapless bra needs to be the exact right size. The best way to find your perfect fit is to measure around your chest and consult the product’s size charts with those numbers in mind.
- Style: Some strapless bras offer full coverage, acting as a type of wrap-around. Others will be sticky, clinging to only the areas that need to be covered and leaving the back open as well. These sticky bras are great for backless dresses.
- Colors: Most strapless bras offer three basic colors — beige, black, and white. Carefully consider the color of the shirt going over the bra before purchasing to make sure it’s not seen through the fabric. Other strapless bras are almost created to be seen, acting as a sort of “mini top” that adds an extra layer of texture to an outfit.
