Bra Trend Alert: 18 Longline Bras for Every Budget

  |   By Estelle Puleston

First, it was decorative backs and high necklines; now it’s longer bands. Brands are pushing the boundaries of bra design by experimenting with different ways to add more fabric. After all, the bigger the canvas, the more space you have to get creative.

Longline bras are not a new invention, but they are a growing trend. It feels like almost every brand has a longline style in their collection this season. Its inspiration is also due to the astronomical popularity of the bralette.

The bralettes designed so you can style them as outerwear, to festivals and the like, often have a longline band. It’s lingerie but also ‘covered up.' And now that look has become popular for underwired bras too. Only one bra on this list, the last one, isn’t wired.

Some longline bras are subtle. Others have ultra-wide bands that reach down to the waist. They can all serve a practical purpose, or be purely for decoration. Added band width means added support, but only if it’s firm fitting.

Look for sturdy fabrics and boning channels if support is what you want. If you like longline bras for the aesthetics only, stretch lace is a better option. The flexible, relaxed fit allows for freedom of movement and total comfort.

Since longline bras are trending right now, it's easy to find them for every budget. Here are 18 from which to choose. They include small bust, full bust, and plus-size options.
