The strapless bra is an anomaly for some ladies, and so they just stay far away.
But the strapless bra is so necessary, and there are a few little tricks to keep up your sleeve to shop and wear the best strapless moment of your life!
It’s All In The Band
If you’re finding that shopping in your bra size renders your strapless bra loose and ill-fitting, you may want to consider going down a band size. You can try going up a cup size for optimal fit, or you can grab a bra back extender if you need just the tiniest bit of extra room.
A thicker, sturdier back band will give that optimal support to ensure the strapless bra stays put and lifts the girls properly.
Look For The Right Features
Strapless bras are a style of bra that shouldn’t be shopped solely based on aesthetics. While yes, there are beautiful, trendy styles, the functionality and special features are what should be key factors before adding to your cart.
Look for a silicone or similar material lining on the inside of the cups, as this helps keep the bra against your skin. Keep your eyes out for a thick back band, as mentioned before. A convertible bra or strapless bra that comes with straps is a nice thing to look for too, as it instantly becomes more versatile.
Try a Longline or Cropped Corset
These styles feature more support and coverage that work to smooth, lift, and shape. Plus, they are seriously very cute and sexy and what’s more fun than experimenting with new lingerie styles?
Have the Right Accessories
We get by with a little help from our friends – and lingerie accessories are the friends you may not know you need.
Whether it be an extra pad to fill in an uneven breast, some body tape to keep the cups still, or some invisible straps as a safety net, you can be sure your next strapless bra will fit perfectly with these little helpers.
Invest in Your Investment
It’s ideal to have a couple of strapless bras handy, and you shouldn’t cheap out on them. Not that you have to drop hundreds of dollars or anything! We have plenty of budget friendly styles for you to fall in love with.
Now, once you have the bras, you need to treat them right! Ideally, you should hand wash your bras and hang dry them. If you have to throw them in the wash, be sure to have a lingerie bag – it’s an inexpensive way to save money on having to replace several bras. And please, PLEASE, hang dry no matter what!
