17 Bras with Stylish Shoulder Straps

  |   By Estelle Puleston

I feel like straps are one of the most neglected parts of a bra when it comes to aesthetic design. There are so many possibilities for the way they could look. And yet 99% of the time, we’re stuck with a line of plain elastic. Satin, if we’re lucky.

Would you love some more eye-catching straps you can show off with a cami or strapless neckline? I’ve hunted down some of the bras with the prettiest straps around. The designs below go to show how diverse this feature can be. There’s glitter. There’s ribbon work. There’s bejewelling. And even more!

Fancy bra straps do tend to be a luxury detail. The simpler design is a big part of why budget bras can cost what they do. However, I did manage to find some lower-priced options to include here. Different sizes are catered to as well. The only thing these bras all have in common is that their shoulder straps are anything but boring!

Loving these strap designs but can’t justify the cost of a new bra right now? If you own one that’s convertible to strapless, you can mix things up with some chic replacement straps. Check out Exposed Envy, Strappys, and Brapples for example. You’ll find everything from chains to braids to strings of beads!
