Most of us are hesitant about investing in dresses with tricky backs. Finding a bra that doesn’t peek out and grab all the attention can be a task. But don’t you think something as basic as a bra shouldn’t be the reason for you to give up on sexy silhouettes? We’re here to help! Here are 5 best bras to wear under backless dresses (and other tricky backs) without feeling uncomfortable!

The Transparent Back Strap

A bra with a transparent back strap is ideal for dresses that have a low cut back or a keyhole design. It keeps the band from showing through the back of the dress and gives a cleaner look. Bras with transparent back straps are quite comfortable and a must-have in every girl’s closet!

The Criss-Cross Back

Criss cross bras are perfect for dresses with a sheer back or just a slightly deep back. They add a summery look to anything you pair it with. Choose a colour that goes well with your dress and add a feminine touch to your outfit with a caged bra!

The Stick On Bra  

Dresses that are backless or have a halter neckline usually call for a stick on bra. A stick on bra will keep your boobs in place and help you show off your sexy back! After all, that’s the reason you bought that backless dress, right?

This is just the kind of dress that needs a stick on bra to do justice to it! When the dress has a back like that, you need to keep the bra straps at bay.

The One With A Plunge

This one’s a no brainer. There are a lot of dresses that have a neckline so deep that most of the bras we own don’t seem to fit right. A plunge bra is what you need to flaunt super deep necklines. It’ll give your cleavage a smooth finish and keep you comfortable.

The Strapless Style

Strapless styles may not be our go-to option, but they sure as hell do the job well. Pretty sure we all have at least one off shoulder top by now (since the trend is here to stay) and a strapless bra has become the need of the trend! Even tops and dresses that have tricky straps (noodle straps, halters) can be worn with a strapless bra.
