The Bras of Summer

April 29, 2011 • Under-Pinnings, Yahoo

May is just around the corner and that means summer is coming! Warmer weather means less clothing, less clothing means more opportunities for undergarment mishaps. With thinner shirts, lower cuts, and skinner straps there's a bra perfect for whatever your summer wardrobe calls for.

For Skinny Straps and Strapless-

Finding a good strapless bra can be very difficult. This Calvin Klein bra is perfect with the low plunge, pretty lace sides and no slip grips in the sides to keep your bra in place no matter the temperature. Strapless bras come with detachable straps so it can be a one-stop bra for most of your summer staples.

For Lows Backs-


Victoria's Secret's new Gorgeous bra is the new bra for low backed tops. A traditional push-up with beautiful details comes with a little bag full of goodies to make this bra a great convertible. This bra does halter and cross-backed and comes with an easy extender to make it disappear under revealing tops.

For The Clingiest and Thinnest Fabrics-

For Racerbacks-

A front close bra with a racerback is perfect for your racerback tops. This one from Victoria's Secret Pink is super cute and is perfect for those summer tanks.

Summer bra tips:

-Make sure you're wearing the right size! Even the best bra looks the worst when it's ill-fitting. Get measured and try on with help from a professional.

-Yes, there are few exceptions in fashion, but no bras showing! Buy a new bra that works for the outfit without showing or don't wear the outfit. No matter how cute your straps are, don't show them.

-If you are lucky enough to be able to go braless, make sure you invest in concealing petals for those air-conditioned situations.

-Lingerie should be functional, but also try to find pieces that are pretty and functional. Support doesn't have to be ugly.
