What is a Longline Bra?
Do you have trouble with strapless bras 'sliding down' under the weight of your bust? Have a great dress you're dying to wear but you don't have the right bra? Want to look a little slimmer and more fit under your clothes? Check out the longline bra - it might be the answer to your problems!
A longline bra is an extended coverage bra that starts at your breasts, and typically goes down your stomach to end a few inches above your belly button. Longline bras come in different lengths, but they all extend down below where a traditional bra band would stop.
Longline bras are great for women who want more support for their busts, and they're often worn under formal and evening wear.
Women who have a hard time finding strapless bras that provide enough support for an ample bosom may find a perfect solution in a longline bra, because the extended structure of these bras helps to absorb some of the weight of the bust and provide support without slipping down under the weight of the breasts.
