What Bra Should You Use For A Strapless Or Formal Dress

Updated on January 15, 2013

Formal Wear

Formal Dress Bras

A prom, a birthday party, a wedding, an anniversary celebration may just be upon us. All these events require formal dresses and gowns, which could be strapless, halter neck, plunging, backless, etc. As important as finding the best formal dress and shoes and bags is finding the undergarment that you should wear under these dresses. A traditional bra is not suitable for formal dresses, so what you need is do some searching.

If your dress is a strapless, buy a strapless bra. Some of threes bras have silicone straps which are “invisible”. However, you will look more flattering if there is no strap to show. There is a key to strapless bras, and this is to have a snug fit (but not to the point of making you uncomfortable). It is important here that you try on a bra before you buy it. When you try a strapless bra, see if doesn’t slip down by raising your arms straight over your head. What will help the bra stay in place are the adhesive strips and the light boning on the cup sides. Your bra should be supportive of your breasts.

Another type of bra that you can use with your strapless dress, especially if it has low-cut back, is the adhesive cups that you only need to stick to your body. They will be held in place by the adhesive with the help from your body heat. The adhesive bra covers only your bust; they do not go around your body. This type of bra is also called “backless bra” because it has no back and no straps, but still offer support to your bust. It is designed in such a way as to make you feel confident in your backless prom or party dress.

If your formal dress is a halter top, or with racer-back , you can pick the convertible bra. This bra has straps that you can wear multiple ways. For example, for your halter dress, you wear only one strap around the back of your neck. For a racer back dress, you wear 2 straps criss-crossed on your back. A strapless bra can also be perfect for both the halter neck and criss-crossed dresses. But for more support, a convertible bra is a better choice.

Then comes your formal dress with plunging neckline, which is very sexy. But finding a bra to go with it can be difficult. A demi cup bra with extra padding and underwire can give your dress the right look and also it will enhance your cleavage.
