Convertible Bras

Convertible Bras are one of the hardest working bra styles that you can add to your lingerie drawer.

They act as the perfect foundation to wear under anything from strapless dresses to racer back tank tops and everything in between.

A staple for any well-stocked lingerie drawer, there can be a bit of guesswork when navigating the many styles that are available.

Questions? Good! We’ve answered your top 7 questions to help you on your quest for the perfect convertible bra...

 1. How Can I Wear The Straps?

There are at least 5 common ways to wear this bra style:

  • classic straps - great for virtually everything
  • halter style - designed for halter dresses, tops and summer wear
  • strapless - a top choice for bridal and strapless dresses
  • one strap - ideal for one shouldered dresses
  • crisscross - for any of your clothing that calls for a cross back

But by all means, get creative and think outside the box. See if you can find even more ways to make this bra even more versatile than it already is.

 2. What's The Best Color?

If you only have room or the budget for just one in your collection, choose a nude shade that matches your skin tone as closely as possible.

This way you can wear it under anything, from dark colors to the lightest, sheer shades.

Here's a tip - Get extra savvy and seek out a reversible style that will give you even more options and bang for your buck.

 3. What Are The Best Bras For Comfort?

Carmen's Tip...

If, you plan on wearing one of the specialty bras for a wedding, party, or even a romantic evening, try the bra on with the clothing you plan to wear, well ahead of the event.

Make sure it fits well and looks beautiful. This will eliminate any last minute surprises.

Strike a balance between fashion and function by choosing a convertible bra with pretty details.

Look for lace bras or bras with lace trim.

Try a feminine color, look decorative straps, or pick luxe embroidery that offer more style and oomph than a plain and seamless bra.

This will work as a practical staple under your clothing, that you can dress up or down depending on the occasion.

Plus, it will give you more flexibility with your lingerie wardrobe.

 4. What Will Match With My Lingerie?

A black bra is a great choice for mixing or with your current collection because you don’t have to worry about getting an exact color match.

A black bra will make an instant set when paired with any pair of black panties that you already have in your lingerie drawer. Easy and simple!

 5. Can Larger Busts Wear This Style?

Absolutely! Just make sure to seek out bra styles that give you the support you need.

Look for wider straps, underwire cups, a wide band across the back and under the bust, and boning at the sides for extra lift when you choose to wear it strapless.

 6. Do I Need Both Regular & Convertible Bras?

While it’s great to have a whole drawer full of different types of bras, you can get by with just one or two pieces.

The convertible bra is versatile enough that it can be one of the main styles that you have.

Most days you’ll wear it with the classic 2 strap configuration, but it gives you the choice to change into whatever strap style you want to fit your needs.

This brassiere is also great choice for packing in your suitcase when you travel instead of taking up space with multiple pieces.

 7. Special Considerations With These Types of Bras?

Like any bra, it needs to fit properly for a flattering figure and comfortable fit.

Try on several sizes and styles when bra shopping to nail the perfect piece that fits properly around the bra band, doesn’t cause you to spill out the sides or top of the cups, wont fall down and doesn’t give you any unsightly lumps or bumps.

Make sure to move around a bit in the fitting room to make sure your bra is comfortable and stays put.
