Summer fashions call for exposed shoulders, low cut backs, and plunge necklines. No matter which part you dare to bare this summer, there’s the perfect bra for showing it off.
With summer in full swing, many of us find our bras taking center stage. Between choosing styles that keep us cool to wrestling with unattractive straps showing, we end up giving a lot of thought to our bras during the summer. Luckily, there are so many options to keep us stylishly supported throughout the months when we bare the most skin. From strapless and convertible styles to intriguing straps, we’ve rounded up some of the best bra styles to wear under summer fashions.
Strapless and bras are a summer must-have. Not just for strapless sundresses, they work equally well under fashions with complicated straps or cut-outs. They’re also a great choice to wear with those breezy summer tops that have barely-there straps or straps that sometimes slip off your shoulders. Many strapless bras include convertible straps allowing for versatility of wear. Look for straps that can convert to criss-cross and halter style to get the most bang for your buck.
The best strapless bras feature side boning that offers support, especially for larger cup sizes. Styles with silicone lining along the back wings add stay-put power. Smooth cups are perfect for clingy knits and removable padding lets you control the “oomph” factor. If you want to take the plunge and show off your cleavage this summer, make sure the style you choose goes as low as you want to go. These strapless and convertible bras offer superior fit and support, from petite busts to full busts, so you’ll feel like a million all summer long.Little Bra Company Strapless Push Up Bra via Little Bra Company Fantasie Seamless Strapless Bra via HerRoom Wacoal Lace Seamless Strapless Bra via HerRoom Jezebel Longline Push Up Convertible Bra via HerRoom Va Bien Plunge Longline Convertible Bra via Bare Necessities Nordstrom Intimates “Unplunge” Convertible Bra via Nordstrom
There’s never been a better time in fashion to reconsider your bra straps. Many bras have straps that are just too pretty to hide. Rather than worrying about a strap peeking out from beneath those tank tops, choose bras that have straps meant to show off. Lace, embroidered appliques, and delicate spaghetti straps are all lovely choices especially if they’re in fun pops of color. There are even edgy styles where the straps have a built in harness to add a little kink to offset prim fashions in a fun and fashion-forward way.Simone Perele Plunge T-Shirt Bra via Bare Necessities Chantelle Lace Underwire Bra via Nordstrom Marie Joe Convertible Bra via Bare Necessities Hopeless Lingerie Suzy Bralette via Hopeless Lingerie
