No Peek-A-Boo(b)s, Please! How To Choose The Right Bra For Your Outfits

You’re wearing that sexy dress and looking like a million bucks—till someone points out an ugly bra strap peeking out and suddenly your amazing outfit looks, well, ordinary. While bra straps can be sexy at time, more often than not they can spoil your look. We list down some tricky outfits and tell you the perfect bras to team with them.

The Backless Dress

Go backless sans any worries by wearing an adhesive bra underneath your top or dress. While you can also wear a backless bra, the adhesive ones will ensure that you can flaunt your bare back, worry-free.

The Strapless Dress

No points for guessing this one! A strapless bra is best suited for a strapless dress. Just remember to pick one that fits well; you don’t want to be pulling your dress up the entire evening. Strapless bras also go well with one-shoulder and halter dresses.

The Plunging Neckline Dress

The bra you choose to wear with a low-neck dress can make or break the outfit. Dresses with plunging necklines usually have a built-in bra, but in case you don’t find wear it with a U-plunge bra.

The Exposed Sides Outfit

Since you’ve decided to show it off anyway, why not make it a pleasing sight? Make sure your bra and outfit are colour coordinated. More importantly, ensure that the bra is a perfect fit—no side boob views, please!

The High Neck Dress

Wear It With: The Full Cup Bra
Turtleneck or high-neck dresses go best with a full cup bra. As your neckline is entirely covered, any lace or textures will be easily visible. To avoid that, opt for smooth, full cup bras that give the perfect shape to your breasts—and also make sure they are in place.

The Racerback Dress

Wear It With: Racerback Bras
If you thought it was okay to have your bra straps pop out from a racerback dress, you are highly mistaken. Avoid this fashion faux pas by wearing racerback bras that are sexy yet comfortable underneath such dresses and tops.

It’s always a good idea to own a convertible or multi-way bra which can be customised to match your outfit’s requirements. Halter, strapless, low back, crossover—the hooks and straps can be attached in numerous ways to suit your convenience. This one’s a must-have and you never know when you’ll need it!
