The Perfect Pairing: Styling Halter Bras with Different Necklines and Outfits

It's no secret that undergarments can make or break a look. With the right undergarments, you feel more confident, and your outfit looks so much more polished. In the world of bra girls, halter bras take up special space. Their unique design captures attention, and provides lift in a way that other bras just don't. And yet, styling halter bras can be a tricky subject. With straps that wrap right around your neck, what's a good way to style and what counts as off-limits? We'll try and answer some of those questions here. It's worthwhile remembering that support trumps over style. If your halter bra is working its magic as a supportive and comfortable bra, how you wear it is really up to your unique preferences. We love trendsetters in our world of BRABAR bra girls as much as we love girlies who love a classic look!  

So, as always, finding the best halter bra when online bra shopping boils down to finding one that offers both style and support, with support being key. At BRABAR, a supportive halter bra is automatically a stylish halter bra because support equals confidence. 

The Best Halter Bra

Halter bras are cool because of their unique design featuring straps that wrap around your neck. This unique design draws attention upwards on any fit, and is great when you're wearing form-fitting tops or wanting to show-off a special cocktail dress. The straps also provide enhanced support working in tandem with the bra band to lift and separate the breasts. That's exactly why halter bras are also great for workdays and every day when you're up and about and busy. The best halter bras come in sizes ranging from AAA to DDD, so that they come close to a perfect fit to your bra size and measurements and body type. There's a halter bra out there for every girl stepping into every occasion. 

Halter Bras with Support: Correct Bra Fit

When you choose a halter bra that fits like a glove, it does wonders for your outfit and your confidence. It's important to know how to measure bra cup size at home, so you can size yourself periodically (we recommend at least one every year). Here's an easy guide to discover your true fit, and a deeper dive on how to measure yourself at home. As we explain in our article on bra measurements, a good bra fits just right at the band and around the bust. The band of your halter bra is what lends your breasts all that support, and to ensure the straps don't overwork and exert pressure at the neck. A bad-fitting halter bra is either too loose or too tight at the band which causes problems in wearability, and ruins a good outfit by sitting awkwardly underneath. Which is why getting measured correctly is crucial to finding the best halter bra for you. A professional fitting service also helps heaps if you're just getting started or looking for styling advice - we'll take care of all that and more!

Styling A Halter Bra for Different Necklines

Low-Cut Tops

Low-cut tops need a good halter bra with a neckline that compliments the top. A halter bra with a V-neck or plunging neckline is your best bet. A V-neck halter bra offers maximum support while disappearing under low-cut tops and dresses while also shaping your outfit from underneath. 

V-Neck Dresses

A V-neck dress deserves a supportive halter bra with an extra feminine flair. A V-neck halter bra with delicate lace detailing on the neckline adds a pop of color and softness to a sweet dress, enhancing your look. Consider pairing your dress with a halter bra in a similar shade or play with contrasts, depending on the look you're going for. A white dress paired with a white halter bra with delicate lace detailing on the straps adds sophistication and elegance to your look. Alternatively, pair it with a green or blue halter lace bra to create contrast for a more casual day look. 

High-Neck Tops

Turtleneck tops, racerback tanks and summery keyhole blouses go really nicely with halter bras. A strappy halter bra under a keyhole top allows for fun with layering, as the unique back strap design shows through the keyhole for a stunning visual effect. It goes without saying that your favorite halter neck tops, racerback tanks, and turtlenecks deserve a supportive halter bra that plays a supporting role to your fashionable look while being discreet. 

Off-the-Shoulder Tops

Halter bras are probably not your first go-to when it comes to off-shoulder tops, but a well-constructed halter bra can actually add to a cold shoulder. A dainty halter bra with elegant lace detailing sits pretty under a lace off-shoulder outfit. A beautifully crafted bra is a great accessory to layer under an outfit because it permits thinking out of the box. 

Backless Cocktail Dresses

A backless dress paired with a backless halter bra is an absolute win-win for girls with larger breasts. Your halter bra ensures you have all the extra support you need on the dance floor while staying discreet and hidden. Choose backless halter bras in classic shades such as black, white or nude, that disappear under those expensive dresses. 

The Importance of Supportive Halter Bras

Support is key to looking and feeling confident, and the best halter bras offer up support and style. When you choose a halter bra without the pesky underwires, you're signing up for enhanced support and well-being in the long run. Things to look for in a supportive halter bra are fabric design - you want fabric that's moisture-wicking and designed to support, stretch and mold onto your breast's natural shape - band width and sizing. When halter bras come in a variety of styles, and offer specific sizing options from AAA to DDD, you're assured of finding what's best for you. 

Once you've got your size right and found the best-looking bra for you and your needs, styling halter bras can be fun. You can layer them, have them disappear under outfits, have them pop at the neckline, and have them create drama under a look! Why settle for less when you can have fun with a halter bra!
