Email Archives: How to Select a Strapless Bra You'll Love

Summer DressSummer fashions, especially bare shoulders and spaghetti straps, dont work well with regular bras. This leaves us with the dilemma of either going braless or wearing a strapless bra. Braless isnt an option for many of us. And a strapless bra often means discomfort and constant tugging when we fear the bra is slipping down to our waist.

Youll probably wear a different size in a strapless bra than your regular bra. Most women need a smaller band size for additional support and may need a larger cup size so they dont pop out the top of the cup.

Here are 5 tips for finding the right strapless bra for you.

  1. Since all the support in a strapless bra comes from the band, make sure the band is snug enough to stay in place but not so tight to be uncomfortable. A sign of a too tight band is when your skin bulges above and below the band to the extent that it is visible under your clothes.
  2. The cups should fit smoothly over your breast without any tissue bulging out of the cup. If the cup is too small, there is a risk of your breast popping out of the cup.
  3. The bra should have rubber strips along the band and the cups to hold the bra in place.
  4. Move around while trying on a strapless bra to make sure it stays in place.
  5. If you need more support, consider a longline strapless bra. A longline bra has a wider band that extends down your midriff providing additional support for your breasts.

Here are 4 of our favorite strapless bras anyone of which may be the perfect strapless bra for you.
