Summertime is here at full blast! Along with summer comes fruity drinks, beach trips, and plenty of skin-baring outfits (yay!), because if you’re like me, you believe in flaunting what you’ve got while you’ve still got it! With that in mind, allow me to recommend the best bras for summertime:
FASHION FORMS NUBRA BODY BRA
The Fashion Forms NuBra Body Bra is the bra you’ll need for strappy tops and dresses. If you’re not already familiar with the NuBra, it’s a comfortable and reusable stick-on bra. It’s perfect for almost everything partially or fully backless, and because it’s made of a smooth silicone material, it creates a completely natural silhouette. You can also wash this bra to ensure that it stays in perfect condition time after time.
FASHION FORMS ULTRALITE PLUNGE NUBRA
The sister bra to the original NuBra, the Ultralite Plunge NuBra is made of a more lightweight material than its predecessor. This makes the Ultralite Plunge more comfortable in hotter climates like the one we have here in New Orleans. And because this version features a U-shaped plunge detail, it works perfectly under low-cut necklines.
FELINA BODY LUXE CONVERTIBLE BRA
Every lady is going to need a basic strapless bra for off-the-shoulder looks or to wear under tank tops. This Body Luxe Convertible Bra by Felina is great because you can wear it as a strapless, halter, racerback, or one-strap bra thanks to removable straps. This lingerie comes in nude and black – why not get both?!
GOSSARD RETROLUTION PLUNGE BRA
The Retrolution Plunge Bra by Gossard is a lot of the Divas’ go-to plunge bra. This piece is perfect under dresses that have deep necklines, such as the Honey or the 1940’s Dress, and comes up to an E cup. What’s great about this bra for the summertime is that it also works really well with the Carole Tie Top. I like to wrap the ends of the top under the plunge part of the bra and then tie a knot so that no part of the bra will show and you get to show as much décolletage as possible – win-win!
HUIT CUPCAKE SOFT BRA
This pretty little thing comes in white or black and has a soft and easy shape that’s ideal for hot days. The Huit Cupcake Soft Bra is light and comfortable, relatively seamless, and easy to wear as a daily bra for smaller cup sizes. It’s ideal for bearing through sunburns, as this piece sits nicely and doesn’t rub against the skin too much.
The Trashy Diva lingerie stores on Magazine and Royal Street are sure to have exactly what you’re looking for in terms of style, size, and price. So, come by and see what’s in store!
