Glamazon Guide: The Best Bras To Wear Under Spring Dresses
An outfit is only as good as the undergarments you pair it with. This spring you don’t want anything to get in the way of you wearing your cute dress.
Seriously, how many times have you just wanted to tap someone and suggest a different bra because the one they were wearing was ruining the look? I have, but that seems a bit random and inappropriate. So here’s hoping that this post helps the lost souls in the bra department.
Obviously, we are good when it comes to traditional bras. It’s when the weird cutouts and necklines come into play that things get tricky. Here are several bras and examples of the dresses best matched for them
Strapless dresses call for strapless bras. You have the support of a traditional bra but don’t have to bother with tucking the straps. Because that’s just awkward. Do a fitting to find a strapless bra that actually lifts and supports you. Nothing’s worse than a bra that keeps slipping down or one that clutches the girls too tight.
Let’s say your dress is one shouldered like Rachel Roy’s. Convertible bras are perfect because you can literally covert the bra into whatever you need it to be. While you can rock a strapless bra with this look, finding a bra with one-strap will give you more support while staying hidden beneath this neckline.
Perhaps the arms of your dress are cut just a little too high (i.e. too high for a traditional bra, because the strap keep slipping into view, but there isn’t a need for strapless.) Don’t you dare wear a regular bra and try to tuck the straps. This is where the racerback bra comes in. Victoria’s Secret has the most amaze selection.
Now this calls for a traditional bra in terms of staps, but when wearing a form-fitting (or freakum dress on the weekend, ow!) you don’t want any bumps and bulges surround the band of your bra. Seamless bras eliminate all that and create one sleek silhouette, like our regal First Lady. Not that she has any bumps or bulges to begin with, though. Love Spanx’s seamless bras for these type of looks.
Take The Plunge
Have you ever seen a bra peek out of a low-cut, plunging dress? ::shivers:: It’s the worst look ever. Whether you go strapless or traditional, invest in a bra with a deep V that will keep the girls in place.
Push Em Up, Push Em Up
This is for those of us who need a bit of help up top. You know, because some dresses look better a little more filled out like Ms. Rih Rih here. Glamazon Jessica is the queen of a good push-up bra and swears by Maidenform’s push up bra.
Remember, before you go all out and get the leopard print lingerie, make sure you have the basics: white, black, and nude for the undergarments you aren’t planning on, ahem, showing.
