Bra shopping is something every woman has to learn to do at some point in her life, but there are areas where it becomes trickier than the standard cup size, back size, pick a colour! One of those situations is when you need to match a specific dress with a comfortable and supportive bra that looks great and doesn’t ruin your outfit. There are lots of things you need to consider to make sure that the bra you choose is the absolute perfect fit, otherwise it could mess up the entire look that you were going for. Here are some top tips to make sure that doesn’t happen!
First off is to match the colour of the bra to what you’re going to be wearing. Most obviously this applies to black and white – a black bra under a white dress is a big no-no. But what about other colours and shades? Dark colours and shades of blue also come through very easily with white, and they will do the same with other light coloured dresses such as cotton yellow or pastel pink. Don’t wear a clashing bra just because it’s your favourite – find something just as comfortable that works with your colour scheme.
Next you need to consider the cut. Especially in the case of spring and summer dresses you will find that necklines and backs may be very low, so much so that a standard bra would be on show. You may instead want to opt for a plunge bra or a strapless bra, one that won’t let straps or bands show. Also be aware of dresses that have cut outs or sheer panels such as lace. A bra or any underwear showing through these gaps could be awkward. For a wedding dress it is also very important to find the right fit, but there are specific bridal lingerie for this.
One final consideration is texture and pattern. Bras that are lacy or have other three dimensional embellishments such as diamantes or bows could look bumpy under light or thin fabrics. Also may sure the seams of the bra don’t stand up too much as these will show through as well, although they may not under more substantial items of clothing.
