Don't Be A Hot Mess In Holiday Photos: The Right Bra For Any Party Dress Neckline
November 9, 2010
From sweetheart necklines to one-shoulder dresses, there’s never been more ways to show off your goods this holiday season. But while finding dresses to wear to all those friggin’ holiday parties might be tough, choosing the right undergarment is even trickier. Behold, our answer to any bra-line problem:
If you have a halter dress:
For a full length black gown, this under-$200 Riller & Fount Selene Open Back Long Dress ($190) is perfectly priced. If you’re going to a classy black tie party – this dress is perfect (just don’t have you bra straps hanging out).
Then you need a adjustable halter strap bra:
This Wonderbra Ultimate Convertible Underwire Bra ($36) is perfection when it comes to halter neckline dresses. Get the full support of Wonderbra straps, but with zero visibility.
If you have a strapless or sweetheart dress:
This Parker Strapless Dress ($242), in a perfect shade of holiday pink, calls for a great strapless bra that stays in place all night. Who wants to be constantly readjusting a falling bra with a glass of champagne in hand?
Then you need a stays-put strapless bra:
Va Bien’s Ultra-Lift Strapless Convertible Bra ($55), a wardrobe staple that will keep below the dress’s sweetheart neckline and won’t budge no matter how much dancing you get into.
If you have a backless dress:
Nothing is sexier than an exposed back – even a little bit. Show off your back-side with this hot Rachel Pally Solange Dress ($211).
Then you need an adhesive bra:
Don’t even mess with a full coverage bra in this case, you need pasties. These Nu Bra Divine Body Bra ($65) are the best (I swear by them) you can wear the same pair 100 times, and the silicone padding gives a bust of any size a good boost.
If you have a one-shoulder or asymmetrical dress:
Nanette Lepore’s Come Hither Dress ($298) combines two of the season’s hottest trends– leopard print and one-shoulder.
Then you need a convertible strap bra:
Va Bien’s Ultra-Lift Low Plunge Convertible Bra ($64) takes out the guesswork out of choosing a bra for any neckline. It features removable straps that take can be worn countless ways (from strapless, to one-shoulder and much more). And to top it off, it’s super comfortable.
