With all of the ups and downs of bra fit and finding our best bra zone, we spend a lot of time worrying about how our bras look from the front. But what about the back? A bra with a pretty back lets you show off assets besides your breasts. Flaunt your strong back in a bold strappy style. Or get flirty with lacy, ethereal styles that showcase beautiful shoulders. It’s amazing how empowered you’ll feel when the emphasis isn’t only on your cleavage.
Warm weather and skimpier fashions are a great time to experiment with the innerwear as outerwear trend. Even if you grew up thinking it was sacrilege to let your bra straps show, there’s something incredibly sexy about giving just a peek of what’s beneath. Many of these styles are easily layered with strappy tanks or slouchy wide-necked tops. Or if you prefer a more subtle approach, you could layer them under slightly sheer fabrics or light colors. They’ll even add graphic interest (and a cheerful mood boost!) to your favorite white tee.
