Greetings Fashion Divas,
I have a reader request from my girl Ebony C to share with you all.
I recently bought a few gel nip covers from tjmaxx and I love them when wearing strapless, halter, open back tops. However in a shirt like this, the shirt has no support. So do you just go bare? What bra/undergarments do you wear? Can you do a post on bra/undergarments for non-traditional tops? I really hate the way regular strapless bras look and feel and with summer coming i'm sure I can't be the only one with this question!
Ebony was referring to this top in a post I submitted a couple of days ago. I decided to go with a bra that matched the color of the shirt because she's right...it has no support if I would have went braless.
Well there are several options on the market to choose from. However, most of the specialty bras available are strapless. Sorry hunni! But I did find a couple that feature straps as well. The bras that I've posted below cater to halter styles, backless garments, and those with cutouts. Check out some fun and affordable specialty bras below.
Fashion Forms Nubra Ultralite self-adhesive backless strapless bra
This nude polyester and polyurethane-blend bra has a clear silicone adhesive that can be worn with a halter top or a backless gown. Detachable self-adhesive lightly molded cups. Clear hook fastening at center and can be worn up to 50 times (so the site claims).
Style Secrets U-plunge Backless Push-up Bra
I think the above style would be perfect for a garment that dips low in the front and is backless. If a top or dress has side cutouts, this style would also work well.
Fashion Forms U Plunge Backless And Strapless Bra
This backless plunge bra features a shaped, padded cups with underwire support, u-plunge neckline to the
front, detachable halterneck straps, a wide underband, and adhesive side wings for a backless finish.
This style features an underwire that won't let you down. Not even DD cups!!! It stays on with a skin-friendly silicone adhesive that lasts for up to 50 wearings (disclaimer: I haven't tested the longevity of this claim....just putting it out there).
Fashion Forms Infinite Options Padded Push Up Bra
$26.36 (on sale) www.asos.com
This bra is actually my favorite of the bunch. The reason is because it has so many options to choose from
and the low v-neck back straps are perfect for backless styles! You can hook conventional-style bra straps
into any eyelet along cups on the back for a ton of options to wear. The bra also features custom shaping
with removable gel push up pads.
I hope the above bras will work for you Ebony. Thanks so much for the request hunni! Remember to click on over to Ebony's blog, Longing for Length for the best advice on hair care!!!
