Sweetheart inside and out

Sweetheart
If you have a top or dress that has a sweetheart neckline and no straps your best off with a bra that reflects this shape.
I can personally recommend this Wonderbra strapless bra. I purchased it because I needed a strapless bra but at the time I wasn’t too fussed about a sweetheart neckline. I’m glad it has that lower sweetheart feature neckline as I can wear it with more things.
For me the fit was really good and the anti-slip band is actually anti-slip! The structure and design inside the cups gives very good support and uplift (although if you have very big lovely boobies you may not be able to get all the support you need). The band fastens with 3 hook and eyes which makes for a very sturdy back. As well as being very practical the bra has some pretty lace on top!

Lace back distraction

Lace back distraction

Fallen in love with a lace back dress but not sure what bra to wear underneath it?

  • With a lace back then your best bet could be to go strapless. Straps could add visual confusion behind the lace pattern.
  • Always choose a nude/skin tone. Even if the bra can be seen through the lace it will be not as obvious as a black or other coloured bra.
  • A smooth seamless cup can increase the illusion that you are not wearing a bra (no bumps and lumps) but with all the benefits and support from wearing a bra!
  • Last but not least you could try a strapless bra (like the picture above) with a clear back. This clear plastic back will mean that your bra will disappear to the naked eye and your skin will show through.

T-Shirt Bra

Every woman should own a great fitting t-shirt bra. It’s such a versatile piece of lingerie. Obviously they work well under t-shirts (thus the name) but they also look great under shirts and smooth fitting dresses.
Basically any tops/dresses that have a lot of coverage but require smooth and seam free lingerie underneath – you can trust a t-shirt bra will do the job.
Choose a skin tone option as this will extend the variety of tops and dresses that you can wear it under!

The bra featured in the picture above is the Charnos Superfit comfort bra.

The dress is from my Riviera Collection. Take a look at this coral dress here.

What bra should I wear under a wrap dress?

Because the right bra can make all the difference especially if you want to look smart and professional. Choosing a moulded cup will avoid lumps and bumps giving you a smooth seam free finish under close fitting tops and dresses. The plunge shape gives you good coverage and is the perfect shape for a v-neck wrap dress.

The dress featured in this picture is from my Silk Line clothing collection.

The Freya Deco Vibe bra pictured above comes in three tones, blush (pictured), mocha and black. If you have a difficult to find size this bra might be a good option. It starts at 28D, 30D and 32B and goes up to 36GG or 38G.
