Certain party dresses can make your bra choice more difficult than usual. And if you’ve chosen one that flashes a fair amount of skin, you’re probably wondering, which is the best bra for backless or low back dresses? Of course, you could go braless, but if you’d like a bit more support, there are lots of great bra options. Here are five of our favourites to rock that sexy new dress with confidence.
Bodysuits are a great choice to team with a backless dress, especially if you want to take advantage of some tummy control and shaping while you’re at it. Rather than hiding away, the right bodysuit will add depth and style to your dress choice, accentuating your back with a beautiful pattern. The True Shape Sensation Bodysuit has delicate lace detailing and softly padded straps. With patented comfort wire and high shaping fabric, this bodysuit will support you all night long.
If less is more and you’d love a strap-free look, the Beautiful Silhouette Strapless Bra might save the day. Not only is it a fantastic bra for a low back dress, its convertible strap function means you can wear it with all your favourite dresses and tops. Cross the straps, tie them diagonally, turn them into a halter neck, wear them as standard or remove them. This flexible bra, in nude and black, has smooth moulded cups and is designed for an invisible look under clothes.
Does your backless dress plunge at the front, too? If so, the Amourette Spotlight Bralette could be just what you need. This wirefree bra, available with gorgeous matching underwear, looks and feels super sexy. The longline plunging style supports you discreetly from the front, while at the back, there’s a stunning smooth lace band on show. This design has no hook and eye and comes in lots of vibrant colours.
If a sheer, sexy look is more your thing, check out the Sheer Minimiser Bra. This elegant minimiser style comes in a range of colours to either match or contrast with your low back dress. The stunning sheer lace makes a statement at the back, while you’re supported and minimised in the front up to an F cup. This is a fantastic bra to wear with tricky dress styles for your next special occasion.
If your preference is for an almost-wearing-nothing feel, then it’s worth checking out the Sloggi range. The light-as-a-feather bras work fantastically well with backless dresses. Think a hook-free back and smooth, invisible lines to make your dress the star. The S by Sloggi Silhouette Bra top and Sloggi Zero Feel Bra Top and Bralette, available in a range of fashion colours, might be just what you’re after.
A backless dress is a daring statement, so stand up straight, shoulders back and own that dress. Make sure your back is in beautiful shape before you show it off by exfoliating and moisturising before party time. If you’d like a bit of extra support, you can find lingerie tape to attach your dress to your bra or skin. If not, glam up and get ready for some attention.
