How to Wear the Right Bra for Your Outfit

 

Women’s fashion is remarkably varied. A woman who wears a turtleneck sweater one day might find herself wearing a backless dress the next. With every change in neckline, a woman must check her bra to make sure it works with her new outfit. Moreover, with such a wide range of tops and necklines available, knowing how to choose the right bra for each outfit can make or break your look. Look for colors, strap styles, and band styles that keep your bra hidden beneath your clothes. Also make sure you wear the correct size, since the wrong bra size can ruin your look regardless of the style you choose.

Choosing the Right Color
Choose an appropriate color. A flesh colored bra offers the most versatility, as shades matching your skin are the least visible under pale, dark, sheer, or thin fabric. Avoid bold colors when wearing light colored shirts or tops made of see-through material.



Matching the Bra to the Activity

Wear a sports bra when exercising. A sports bra may not create the most flattering silhouette but it does its job, which is to keep you comfortable and to prevent your breasts from experiencing strain when moving. Some studies suggest that wearing a sports bra during exercise can reduce bouncing by approximately 74%, which will keep you feeling comfortable and supported.
There are specially adapted sports bras for such activities as yoga and pilates, so that you only have to wear the bra layer and not overheat.

 
Matching the Bra to the Clothing
 
Stick with a standard bra for casual crew neck t-shirts. As long as your bra provides you with the correct amount of support and leaves you feeling comfortable, virtually any bra can work under an ordinary, slightly loose t-shirt. Many women find a standard, no-fuss bra the most comfortable but you can opt for whatever style you like best.

Opt for a seamless bra for shirts made of clingy fabric. Seamless bras prevent lines from showing through your top, making them an excellent choice for tight t-shirts and fitted blouses. Stick with a full-coverage bra to create the smoothest fit, since demi-cup bras hit the middle of your breast and may create a dividing line that can show through your top.
 
 
Look for a plunging bra for deep v-neck tops. Plunging bras have a very deep center bridge, well below your breasts. If you wear a standard bra with a deep neckline, the cups or bridge may be exposed.
 
Try on a halter bra for a halter top. The straps on a halter bra come in closer around your neck, rather than sitting further out along your shoulder. As a result, the straps remain hidden beneath the fabric of your top.
  • Wear racerback bras for racerback tops. Like the halter bra, the racerback bra has straps that mimic the shape of the top that shares its name.

Use a strapless bra beneath a strapless or spaghetti string top. Strapless bras smooth out your form and provide basic support. They might run a little tighter than a standard bra, however, since the band must provide full support in the absence of straps.

 
Try a spaghetti strap bra with spaghetti strap tops. A bra with super thin straps may coordinate well enough with a spaghetti strap top. The straps may not disappear completely beneath your top but as long as your bra straps do not exceed the thickness of your top’s straps, you may be able to get away with showing your bra straps in casual settings.
  • Choose a color that matches your top or stick with a neutral color.

Buy a convertible bra for versatility. Convertible bras have adjustable straps, allowing you to change the way the straps fit based on the cut of your shirt. Basic convertible bras can usually be changed into halter bras and strapless bras; more extravagant convertibles have even more options.

 
Consider silicone adhesive bras for deep necklines, backless tops and strapless tops. Silicone adhesive bras have no back and no straps. They stick onto your skin and smooth out your silhouette. These bras offer minimal support, however, so you should only use them as a last resort.
Wear any bra with your underwear. There are no rules about matching the bra to your underwear––nobody sees the “match” and it’s totally up to you whether this matters or not. If it does matter, aim to buy the bra and underwear at the same time to ensure a good match
