5 Staple Summer Bras

June 4, 2018

The cute tanks, tees, blouses and dresses that comes with warming weather mean finding the right bras—depending on the style, you may need a bra without straps, something that gives you a little boost, or, for those super-hot days, support that’s barely even there. Below, five essential bras to carry (and your girls) through summer. —Jennifer Cox

lightweight. This underwire bra from La Vie En Rose ($50) is lightly lined with flexible mouldable cups, perfect for humid temps and maximum comfort. A seamless back and sides minimize the appearance of lines, too.

sporty. Every gal needs a great sports bra, especially in the summertime, and the Sport from Change Lingerie ($90) has everything you want in a sporty brassiere: bust support, quick-dry material and adjustable straps. Plus, the colour is cool.

strapless. Summer is the best time to show off those shoulders with cute strapless dresses, meaning you’ll need an accompanying strapless bra. This La Senza number ($50) boasts underwire with a touch of silicone lining so it will stay put. It can also be adjusted to be strapless, classic, crossed, one shoulder, narrow classic, narrow crossed and narrow one shoulder, so it goes with virtually any cute top!

push up. Lift and lining make this Victoria’s Secret push up ($65) a summer undergarment essential. Underwire cups and a front closure give seamless support, while the padding adds one cup size (and don’t even get us started on that gorgeous back!). Pair with a sexy low-cut tank.

summer bra

plunge. So, it looks a little odd, but Simons’ multi-position adhesive padded strapless plunge bra ($36) is so discrete you can dress up in basically anything you want this season, including open-back dresses. Wear it with or without straps.
