When to Wear a Racerback Bra

Racerback bras are primarily sports bra designs, which makes them great for hot weather and working out. However, some of our racerback bra designs are also everyday bras, so with this variety of styles, racerback bras are great for:

  • Under a tank top
  • With a y-style or crossover shirt
  • When working out
  • At work or everyday

There's really no time when it's inappropriate to wear a racerback bra, except:

  • With shirts, tops or dresses where the band or straps would show

Keep in mind that not all racerback styles are the same, though. If you've got a shirt with a narrow racerback, you may find some racerback styles are too wide and would show through the shoulder cutouts. Look for a racerback style that is appropriate to wear with your specific shirt or dress design.
