Love those breezy summer styles, but still want some support and shaping? Here are our favorite bras for spaghetti strap tops, strapless dresses, racerback tanks and backless styles.
Pictured above is the best strapless bra for full bust sizes, Wacoal’s Red Carpet Strapless. Available in band sizes 30-42, and cup sizes C-H (though not all combinations), this bra provides a wonderfully smooth and uplifted shape.
Natori’s Feathers collection includes beautiful everyday bras! The plunge and t-back styles feature lightly contoured cups with a significant plunge, so they’re great for low-cut and racer-back tops. A lace-trimmed mesh overlay smooths the edges of the cups, making this is one of the best-fitting and prettiest basic bras.
Backless dress? Nubra’s seamless adhesive bra provides shaping and cleavage with medical grade adhesive-lined cups and a front closure clip. Wear it, wash it, and store it in its plastic case, and you’ll be set for several summers of backless fashions. If you don’t need a ton of support and want a little bit of coverage, this sticky cup bra might be perfect for you!
Coobie bralettes have become a fan favorite! There are lots of styles, including a lace trimmed v-neck (our best-selling style), and the wide-strapped “comfort” shape, but our favorites for the summer are the bandeaus and the lace back scoop neck. Both of these styles are nice for layering with a sundress or tank. These comfy bralettes are only $16-$24, and we have a huge selection of colors in the shop!
Cosabella’s Never Say Never collection was one of the first bralette styles that started the whole bralette trend, and this quintessential style remains one of our most popular. Beautiful and lightweight, this is a simple, perfect bralette for those who love that feeling of a less structured bra. We have a rainbow of fun colors in this line, as well as lined and unlined bralettes to work for a variety of sizes.
If you just want lightweight nipple coverage, try Nippies Skin! These contoured silicone covers have an adhesive or non-adhesive option. If you’re wearing a dress or top and you don’t need support and can’t wear a typical bra, Nippies have you covered!
Montelle’s Wire-Free Lace Bralette is an amazing bralette that is actually sized! It has a band size and approximate cup size which allows for a more accurate fit than most bralettes. This wire-free bra gives nice light support while also being gorgeous. In 30-40 band sizes and B/C to F/G cup sizes, this bralette appeals to (and supports) women in a range of bust sizes. If you thought the bralette trend was going to pass you by, please try this and see how you feel… and look.
We’ve loved Chantelle’s Revele Moi bra since it debuted nearly three years ago. This unlined bra is a great choice for hot summer days when you want something lightweight, but also very supportive. It is a full coverage bra, but the sheer mesh at the top of the cup keeps it looking sexy, and as soon as you try it, you know it will be a staple in your wardrobe. In 30-42 band sizes and B-H cups (but not all combinations) this unlined lacy bra is actually very smooth under clothing. Available in black, a versatile suede, and seasonal colors, this could be your perfect summer bra.
