The black bra set is a lingerie classic. I’d almost say a must-have. Inky black looks fabulous on all skin tones, and it pairs well with anything. And because we’ve come to associate it with sexy lingerie, it’s often the go-to choice when picking out something for the boudoir.
Can’t justify buying a new bra set except for those special occasions? Well, maybe you don’t need to. I’ve picked out 12 classic black bra sets that work equally well for day-to-day wear and date nights.
The bras here will be practical under most outfits but are anything but boring. There are options for small busts, full busts, and 30-44 band sizes. You'll find luxury splurges and more budget-friendly buys. Plus designs to suit style tastes both lacy and sleek-and-minimal. I hope your perfect every occasion black bra set is below!
Black Bra Sets Below $100
This minimalist black bra set has striped-yet-smooth cups, for a neat silhouette under clothing. But the elegant ribbon-and-gold-hardware details take it from simple basic to something prettier. You can also throw in the matching garter belt on days you want added boudoir appeal.
For those who wear a D+ or above, the Panache Clara is a favorite design for a dash of daily luxury. It combines understated, elegant beauty with excellent support and comfort.
Parfait’s Charlotte is another full-bust favorite, and available in a vast size range. With smooth, supportive cups and high-rise bottoms, it’s practical for day-to-day wear. But thanks to the glossy satin fabric, it won’t look at all out of place in the boudoir.
Designed specially to fit and flatter small busts, the low-cut of these cups means it works under lots of necklines. The lines may be simple, but the sheer mesh keeps it sexy.
The lashings of scalloped lace on this set make it look dainty and delicate. But according to reviews, it’s surprisingly sturdy, not to mention ultra-comfy. Boux Avenue says this one will do fine in the washing machine.

A more minimalist and sporty-looking style here. The extra-wide plunge means this bra is super practical to wear under V necklines. The narrow spacer, cleavage-revealing design, and geometric trims make it more than a little striking too!
Black Bra Sets Over $100
This classic plunge bra may not be too dissimilar to what you already wear on a daily basis. The difference? Felinda is made from sumptuous silk-satin. When you want to dress it up, you can add the modern leg harness garter belt or the retro-style roll-on girdle.
Myla recently relaunched after a brief hiatus. While they're sticking with their usual timeless style, this new collection includes some simple-but-luxurious black lace bra sets. Soho may have a practical shape, but the graphic lace is certainly eye-catching.
Similar to the earlier Timpa bra, this one also features a low, wide neckline which will stay hidden under most garments. The cut is relatively simple, but metallic threads are woven into the lace add some special-occasion-ready sparkle.
This elegant, lace black bra set is the perfect blend of luxury and wearability. Lace-trimmed split straps and a cut-out gore are just two of the pretty details built into this design.
This luxury bra set manages to be both supremely decadent and perfectly wearable for every day. It has supportive side slings and wide, comfy straps. And metallic-edged embroidery makes it boudoir-perfect. For those most special of occasions, add the embroidered slip skirt.
This Dita Von Teese design is a lingerie industry favorite. It’s comfy, durable and supportive. But with the strappy details and semi-sheer cups, it’s also the perfect choice when you want something special. Well, that or the sequinned version!
Do you love a good black bra set? I know I do! What’s your favorite black lingerie set that you own?
