Having Fun Without the Straps: The Practical Side of Wearing Strapless Brass

Wirefree bras aren't the only thing we've got to wow you! Our strapless bras are comfortable, supportive, and stylish, too. Strapless bras are actually a lot more versatile than people give them credit for. And, we're here to say the narrative is all wrong - you don't wear a strapless bra under a strapless outfit. You wear a strapless bra under pretty much anything you damn want! Strapless bras do make wearing certain outfits much easier, but that's not all to them. Strapless bras can be as secure, supportive, and comfortable as any other bra. When you choose to wear a strapless bra that fits just right, you're choosing to do away with awkward adjustments during an important business event or big night out! 

What to Look For in the Strapless Bra: Sizing First for Correct Bra Fit

So, where does a bra girl start when looking for the best strapless bra? You start with sizing. Always, sizing, sizing and sizing. We recommend getting a professional fitting, but if you prefer measuring yourself, we have a nifty guide to take you through the process. Finding the right size is crucial to finding the best strapless bra for you - one that won't dig, pinch or ride up at the band. 

Online Bra Shopping for the Best Strapless Bra

The best strapless bras are both stylish and supportive. When shopping for a strapless bra, always look at the band -wider bands mean better support, especially on wirefree options. Going wirefree is best for maximum comfort.

Strapless Bra Styles

There's something to suit every need when it comes to strapless bras. Whether you need a style that works best for you or want to invest in a range of strapless bras to suit every kind of occasion, there's something for you. Here's what we recommend!

Multiway/Convertible Bras

Convertible bras are bras with straps that let you play with different configurations - you can switch up your straps to go racerback, cami, or strapless. They're extremely versatile and great when you're on the move and need to switch from a day to evening look. Also, great for working women with an active lifestyle who are looking to minimize outfit change time. Convertible bras are supportive strapless bra tops meant to stay in place and support you, wherever you go. 

Full Coverage Strapless Bras

Full coverage strapless bras are basically like strapless bra tops. They offer ample breast support through a strong and wide band area and a full cup area. These strapless bras can be worn inside or as a strapless bra top. They're great for girls with small breasts but especially good for girls with fuller busts that need the extra support. Ours comes with a sweetheart neckline and side panels to prevent bulging and spillage. 

Push-Up Strapless Bras

If you're looking to add an extra dose of sexy to a cocktail dress or looking for extra coverage under a form-fitting top, consider adding removable cups to your bra. Removable cups are especially great for girls with smaller busts looking to bulk up and push-up the cleavage area - a great look for date nights!

The Best Strapless Bra for You

The right strapless bra for you depends on your size and occasion. Here are some questions to ask yourself when online bra shopping: 

  1. What do I want my strapless bra to do for me - slip under a form-fitting dress? Or, support me through the day? 
  2. What outfits do I want to wear my strapless bra with? Your bra's neckline can make or break a look. 
  3. How active am I? Am I looking to wear my bra for prolonged periods?
  4. What size bra offers me the best support? Get professionally fitted.

The right pairing for you will depend on your bra size and measurements, lifestyle factors, and style and taste. A gentle reminder that size is everything and a professional fitting would do wonders determining the correct bra size measurements and making stylistic choices. 

Tips for All Day Wear

Have you made a purchase of a strapless bra already? Here are some handy tips to turn this wonderful relationship into a friendship that lasts forever!

  1. Wide bands are everything. Wide bands won't dig or cause friction against your skin, making long durations of wear so much more blissful. 
  1. Add cups to your bras when you're attending an event or anticipating a lot of movement and bounce. 
  1. Always test a bra and consider sister sizing for different occasions. You may need a tighter band for events involving medium-impact activities. 

4.Satin and slippery fabrics are a big no! Always consider whether your bra's maker has put thought into fabric design!
