When thinking any strapless, off shoulder or mesh top dress, the right bra seems to be a strapless one. But strapless bras tend to slip and no one wants to be caught pulling up their bra. Hence, opt for a strapless bodysuit or bustier instead. The broader coverage ensures a better grip over your body with stress of slips.

For all your racerback dresses, a T-strap bra is the answer. Most T-strap bras come with front closure, making them convenient to wear. They also tend to give you a natural looking cleavage with the halter neckline pushing your assets inward and upward in the right way.

Plunging necklines are perfect for party season but the tricky part is wearing a bra that showcases your chiselled neckline without being tacky. At these times, let plunge bras that are attached with a very thin line in the front, come to your rescue.

There’s just something about low back dresses. But most of the times, when women wear them with regular bras, they lose all their charm. For cuts like these, use a wrap around bra that allows you all that extra skin show from the back but gives you the right kind of support from the front.
