Strapless


strapless bra

A type of bra created and designed in various colors, cup sizes, materials, mechanisms and styles that does not include any shoulder strap (s) in the design.

Strapless bras are useful with clothing which doesn’t cover the shoulders.  They are tricky to wear.
Some suggestions for buying a strapless bra:

1. Play Around With Sizes

It’s a good rule of thumb to get measured when you’re buying a new bra, but your usual size could vary from your strapless size. “When buying a strapless bra, you should size down in the band and up in the cup,” Linda the Bra Lady suggest on her blog. “The reason for this is that the band is the only source of support, so it has to fit snug to keep the bra, and the girls, up.”

2. Make It Stick

To lower the risk of your strapless heading south, help your bra stick to your skin as much as possible. For example, keep your skin clean and don’t put beauty products like oils and creams on your chest. Try to look for styles that have sticky features like silicone or a rubber grippy band on the inside seam.

3. Try Before You Buy

When buying a strapless bra, the fit and size of your bra can vary hugely from brand to brand so get in the changing room for a trying on session.

4. Look For Well-Constructed Garments

Women who are well-endowed will get greater comfort from a strapless with a little extra band support. If you’re full busted, you need a strapless bra featuring a wider band, three hooks in the back, and extra support through the cups.

5. Consider The Longline

If a wide band doesn’t do the job, try a longline style. These styles will give you some reinforcement from below your chest. A longline bra has a bodice which will help support your bust, the band extends all the way to the waist for maximum lift.” (top photo)

6. Fill It In

Fit your bra to your largest breast and use a pad to fill in the other side, no one has equally sized breasts unless they had help.

7. Take Proper Care of it

When it comes to underwire or more sturdy bras, always hand wash, let them dry with the cups facing upwards and smooth out any dents to help maintain the bra’s original shape.
