With Christmas just around the corner, you’ve probably got many social events in the diary. Office parties, nights out with friends and festive lunches all require a little glitz and glamour – but what underwear should you put on? The right lingerie can make or break an outfit, so it’s essential to choose an appropriate bra and show off your assets in style.
Halter-neck garments: Halter-neck bra
Whether you are naturally blessed with a large chest, or you’ve had a breast reduction, you can get away with wearing halter-neck tops or dresses. These provide plenty of support for ample-breasted ladies, but you must team them with a halter-neck bra. These follow the neckline of most garments and ensure your underwear is not on show. Many regular bras include straps and attachments that can be adapted to suit your clothes, so keep a lookout for these when you’re shopping.
Low-cut outfits: A deep-plunge bra
If you’ve got it, flaunt it, but make sure you wear a bra with a deep plunge at the front. These are specifically designed for low-cut tops and will leave your cleavage free and fabulous. What’s more, they’ll still offer you the shape, support and uplift you need, meaning you can dance the night away without everything jiggling around. If you do decide to opt for this style, however, ensure you get measured first as it’s essential to wear the right back and cup size.
Strapless or off-the-shoulder designs: Strapless bra
Strapless, single strap or off-the-shoulder designs can look fabulous, particularly if you have well-toned arms and shoulders. While it can be tempting to go braless with such attire – particularly if you have a modest chest – it’s wise to wear underwear, no matter what your size. Strapless bras are available in many shops these days and will help give more structure and shape to your outfit. They’ll keep your breasts pert and will ensure your assets are protected if your dress or top slips down a little.
The biggest fashion faux pas you can make is to wear the wrong coloured bra with a specific outfit. So, if you’re putting on a black dress, ensure you buy a black bra so it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Similarly, if you’ve gone for an all-white look, take care to find the right lingerie. There are many colours, patterns and styles available these days, so there’s no excuse for colour clashes.
The right lingerie can enhance your naturally small chest or make the most of your boob job, so stock up before the party season gets in full swing.
