For a One Shoulder Top/dress

Wear a convertible bra with a strap on one side and take off the strap on the other side.


Halter Neck

Using a convertible bra again, take off one strap completely and unhook the other strap from the back, wrap it around the neck and clasp it on the other side thereby creating a halter neck bra for a halter neck top. Easy peasy!


The halter neck style is a popular choice for tops and dresses, but finding the right bra to wear with it can be a challenge. Luckily, there is a simple solution using a convertible bra. By removing one strap and wrapping the other around your neck, you can create a halter neck bra that provides the necessary support and coverage. This style is perfect for backless or low-cut tops, and can also be used for dresses with a halter neck design. It's a versatile option that every woman should have in her wardrobe.


For Plunging Necklines

Pick a v necked bra that has a plunging neckline.


For Low Backs

Use a bra strap extension as shown to hide the back of your bra.


Wearing a bra can be a struggle, especially when it comes to finding the right one for different types of tops and dresses. For low backs, a bra strap extension can be a lifesaver. It allows you to adjust the bra straps to a lower position, making them invisible under backless or low back tops and dresses. This is a great solution for those who want to wear a bra for extra support but don't want it to be seen. Bra strap extensions are affordable and can easily be found at most lingerie or department stores. They come in various colors and sizes to match different bra straps, making them a versatile and practical accessory to have in your lingerie collection.


For a Criss-cross Back

Once again, the bra strap extension comes to your rescue! Criss cross the straps of your bra and use the extension as shown in the video. It seems a little complicated but is so worth it!


For a criss-cross back, a bra strap extension is an ideal solution. It allows you to adjust the straps to fit perfectly and provide the right amount of support. The extension is easy to attach; simply criss-cross the straps of your bra and attach the extension. You can find a variety of bra strap extensions in different colors, lengths, and materials to match any outfit. They are also affordable and can be reused multiple times. With a bra strap extension, you can enjoy a comfortable and stylish fit for any criss-cross back top or dress.


Racerback Top

If you have a racerback top but don't have a convertible bra, use a bra strap clipper to secure your bra straps in the center.


For a Backless Top or Dress

Use a backless bra with adhesive strips. Alternately you could also use a bralette with a pretty lace back. This works like a charm especially for bustier women who can't use the adhesive bra!


When opting for a backless ensemble, the goal is to maintain support while ensuring the bra remains invisible. For those preferring not to use adhesive options, a converter strap can lower the back of a standard bra to align with the cut of your dress or top. For an added touch of elegance, consider a convertible bra with clear straps and back bands – it provides the necessary support seamlessly. Remember, comfort is key; before stepping out, ensure you test the fit and wearability, so your backless look remains both stunning and secure throughout the event.


For Exercise

You don't want to wear just any kind of bra when you exercise because you need plenty of support for comfort and to protect the tissue in your breasts. Make sure you try on sports bras before buying since they are sized differently than your usual bra.


For a T-shirt

You've probably noticed that if you wear a lacy bra under a t-shirt, it's totally obvious. That's why your bra wardrobe definitely needs a t-shirt bra. This one has smooth cups that look seamless under your favorite causal wear.


For a Strapless Look

If you're wearing a strapless dress, you don't want your bra straps showing. Look for one that has removable straps so that you can still wear it when you go bare.

Thanks, but, what kind of a "good" strapless bra should I wear under my wedding dress? One that I won't have to keep tugging at all night? I have a corset back, so I does hold me in tight. I'm looking for a good strapless w/o a lot of padding? HELP, please!!

Great for my new dress

This article would be more effective if it would have had pictures too

This was a very informative article. Just recently i faced this issue and I bought a strapless bra because it would have worked best with what I was trying to wear. But as you stated, sometimes you just can't help it; your bra might end up peeking through just a little anyway.😛

Great advices, thanks!
