There are so many things we love about summer: the swimming, the gardens, beautiful blue-sky days that seem to brim over with time for everything you want to do before stretching into long, warm evenings, and of course, summer style! Your fun, carefree summer fashion should be just that—carefree. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of our very favorite summer bra staples including underwire, contour, bralette, convertible strapless options and more; so you can turn your attention to more important things, like planning your next road trip.
Chantelle’s Revele Moi has been one of our very best sellers from the moment it came into our store—it’s full-coverage yet beautiful, lightweight yet surprisingly supportive, and overall incredibly comfortable. Plus, it looks fantastic on almost everyone, and comes in an impressively extensive size range (B-H cups, 30-42 band sizes).
The Parisian Plunge is yet another must-have from Chantelle, especially for larger cup sizes (up to an H cup as well!). This unlined plunge bra features a 4-part cup for great shaping, so it will have you flaunting your best summer styles with confidence! The lightweight fabric makes that hot weather seem much more manageable. Available in black and suede, the Parisian is quickly becoming a customer favorite.
Wireless bras (aka soft bras or bralettes) are super popular this season! We’re huge fans of three Cosabella collections with soft bras: Italia, with a beautiful plunge style with contrasting colors, Trenta, a delicate sexy lace, and Never Say Never, which comes in a rainbow of colors and works well for larger cup sizes. Honeydew offers Camellia, a darling style for small cup sizes in a versatile ivory and a fun tangelo.
Sleeveless, spaghetti strap and racerback summer tops can necessitate a specialty bra. Fortunately, we have lots to choose from! For racerback styles, try the b.classic t-back bra from b.tempt’d, with smooth contour cups, an adjustable t-strap and deep plunge front closure. There are great wireless styles, too: Cosabella’s Never Say Never Racie bralette and Eberjey’s Colette racer back bralet. Wear nude or black to keep the focus on your summer top, or a color to accent or contrast!
We’ve got you covered for strapless tops and dresses, too! Coobie offers two lace bandeau bralettes, one with a lace top, and the other with a sheer lace back. The strapless bra featured at the top of this post is by b.tempt’d, and the other strapless above is by Felina. We also carry strapless styles by Wacoal and Le Mystere, too. We like to offer multiple brands, since different styles have different shapes and size ranges (as small as a 30 band, and up to G cups).
When you think there’s no chance you could wear a bra at all with a particular top or dress, you still might have options: think adhesive! Nubra makes a fabulous option with adhesive cups that clasp in the center, providing nice smooth shaping and cleavage. Nippies makes silicone nipple covers with super thin edges, as well as adhesive fabric nipple covers in fun prints and shapes. If you’ve got straps or a neckline that won’t stay in place, try Hollywood Fashion Tape, which sticks fabric to skin or fabric, and doesn’t leave any sticky residue after you take it off (it even works great on silk!)
Feel free to bring your tops and dresses in, so you can try the best options and know they’ll work! We’re here to help with all of your summer bra dilemmas!
