How To Show Off Your Pretty Bra… Without Looking “Scandalous”!
If you haven’t yet read actress Saloni Chopra’s powerful Instagram post about bras, please do so here. And then, let’s take inspiration from her and talk about some ways in which you can show off your bras like a badass! After all, you’ve spent so much money buying those tiny gorgeous pieces of cloth and padding. They deserve to have their day in the sun!
1. A colourful bra under a sheer top
The best way to show off your cute bra is to wear it under a sheer top! A bra in a bold color, when worn under a sheer top, can up your glam quotient in a matter of seconds. Stay away from anything too lacy and stick to bright, basic bras or pretty prints for this look.

2. Cross straps with a spaghetti top
The best way to show off your beautiful bra straps is by wearing cross over bra with a spaghetti straps top. Tie your hair up to show off your bra straps subtly. If you’re not feeling too adventurous, you can match the color of your straps with the color of your top as well.

3. Lacy bra with a V-neck camisole
Who doesn’t want to show off their gorgeous lacy bras? Add a touch of elegance to a simple camisole by wearing a lacy bra under it. Just a bit of lace peeking from the top of a V-neck camisole will look so pretty! You can cover up with a blazer or a summer jacket on top for a sophisticated look.

4. A longline bra paired with a top that has big armholes
Have a top with low-cut sides and don’t know what to wear underneath that? Choose a bra or bralette which has a broad band. A longline bra, when worn under a top with big armholes, can elevate your entire outfit, making it a lot more fun! Choose interesting prints and contrasting colors for this look.

5. Backless top with a front-closing bra
Wearing a backless top where the bra hooks show often looks tacky. Tackle that problem by getting yourself cute bras with front-closing straps. A sexy back band can do so much for your outfit!

6. Black bra with your strapless LBD
Give your basic LBD a very sexy twist by pairing it with a lacy black bra. Who says you can only wear strapless bras with your strapless dresses? The right kind of lace and design on your bra can make your little black dress instantly more feminine.

7. Match necklines
This way of showing off your bra works best with plunge neck tops. Wear these tops with bras that have the same neckline. For example, a V-neck top with a V-neck bra showing on top can look awesome!

8. Sexy Back!
Bras with sexy backs are all the rage right now. If you have a halter neck top or dress, pair it with a bra which has an elaborate, strappy design on the back. This look is sure to make a few heads turn!

9. Wear it as a top!
If you’re feeling extra-adventurous today, why don’t you wear your bra as a top! We’re not saying you wear those itsy-bitsy pieces of lace as tops on public transport, but there are plenty of longline bras available today that are as pretty (if not more) as crop tops. Wear these with high-waisted pants or skirts to show off your midriff in a sexy way. Throw on a shrug on top if you’re feeling a bit conscious.
