On a bra budget? If tightening the proverbial bra straps is top priority this year, these Fab 5 versatile styles will work with nearly every outfit you can dream up.
THE NUDE T-SHIRT BRA
A practical bra doesn’t have to mean boring. A pretty jacquard print that is visible to you, but invisible under your shirt, the CK2401 Smoothie Seamless Microfiber Moulded Balcony Bra by Curvy Kate is the ultimate inversatility, style and comfort. Silk blouses, dress shirts and of course, your favorite t-shirts will all pair nicely with this practical nude number.
THE SMOOTH BLACK BRA
Every girl needs a no-frills black bra. Sexy and supportive, you’ll never bore of a basic black bra that takes the guess-work out of what to pair with *that* top. (Hint: the black one!) We love Montelle Intimates 9011 & 9021 (available up to a G cup) Demi T-Shirt Bra in Black.
THE EMBELLISHED SEAMLESS BRA
An embellished bra? Yes, Ma’am! This style is a bust-must for the gal on a bra budget. A seamless embellished bra like the Vintage 8403 Seamless Bra by Grenier Lingerie can be worn under fitted shirts, so pull out those Lycra, spandex and stretchy cotton tops. The smooth cup ensures a smooth finish, and the sexy embroidered floral lace is a step up from basic black.
THE NUDE STRAPLESS BRA
Leather and lace may garner all the looks, but a good quality, well-fitting strapless bra is the unsung hero of lingerie. When you find a great one that’s under $50, like the Allison Seamless 2415 Strapless Bra by Affinitas Intimates, you’ve added an essential piece to your collection.
THE POP OF COLOR
While we love our neutrals, a drawer full of exclusively nude and black bras isn’t ideal- or necessary! Even while adhering to a bra budget, a fun pop of colour can easily be incorporated into your rotation. For maximum wearability, avoid full lace options and reach for lightly embellished styles like the Montelle Intimates Full Coverage 9020 T-Shirt Bra, which comes in a variety of colours.
