Backless Bras

Their secret? Backless bras.

Not the bulky, heavy and uncomfortable brassieres of yesteryear, but lightweight and comfortable bras that also fit and flatter virtually every neckline shape.

From the classic scoop neck and square neck, to the sleek V neck and square neck, the backless bra is a very versatile bra style that lends itself to just about any style of clothing.

This leads us to the next question, “how do you get a great bra fit "? It isn't difficult once you understand the basics.

We've gathered a few insider lingerie tips? that will give you a great look and fit every time. Let's take a closer look...

Lingerie Secret #1

Looking chic always starts with a great fit. This often means ignoring the bra sizes on tags and concentrating on getting the best bra fit regardless of what size the tag says.

Concentrate on avoiding the following. There should be no gaps, puckers, bulges or overspill – a big no-no, around the bra cup.

Also, no pulling or visible back fat. The brassiere should also provide you with enough support and be very comfortable to wear.

Lingerie Secret #2

For a smooth and polished look the best bras are seamless bras which are often called T-shirt bras.

Often under-rated these are great multi-purpose brassieres that are a real work-horse in the lingerie world, since they make every outfit look great.

Seamless bras do not have seams in the bra cups, and minimal seams elsewhere, which gives them an almost invisible look.

Look for lightly padded bras with molded cups that will even out an small lumps and bumps for a smoother appearance.

Lingerie Secret #3

Finally, opt for a nude, or skin tone backless bra that is closest to your natural coloring.

Why? This color provides an invisible look because it blends into your skin tone. If, nude is not available in your local store, then opt for ivory.

The color to avoid at all costs, particularly if you're wearing white is, surprise surprise: white.

Why? Wearing white under white clothing is akin to showing your lingerie to everyone.

A white brassiere under a white dress, top or sweater shows through and is very visible.

So, unless you want to share your lingerie with the world when you're wearing your summer finest, avoid white bras and opt for more neutral nude bras.
