What is a Convertible Bra?

Do you love to wear halter tops, but have trouble finding a bra with enough support? Have you ever wished for a bra you could wear with or without straps? Wanted a bra with criss-cross back or racerback that wouldn't show through your favorite summer tops?

Convertible bras are almost magical bras whose straps transform to practically any style you could want - and they're the solution to a wide variety of wardrobe-related challenges!

A convertible bra is a bra whose straps are designed to be worn in different ways, or removed entirely. Some convertible bras are bras that you can wear with straps or as strapless bras, which brings great versatility to your wardrobe. Other convertible bras feature straps that you can wear in a crossover style, or even as a halter style. A few convertible bras can even double as backless bras.
