We’ve all been there: Tugging at a strapless bra during dinner and praying it won’t fall down as soon as you hit the dance floor. Many women think all strapless bras are created equal — but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The best convertible strapless bras have a few things in common: a perfect fit, a textured trim, high-quality fabrics and smart design.
The fit is crucial. If your convertible bra doesn’t fit perfectly, it will shimmy down your back and potentially leave you exposed, or at the very least self-conscious. Don’t be surprised if your usual bra size doesn’t do the trick. Women often wear a smaller size in strapless bras, because the band is the only source of support. Just beware that too small of a band can then become uncomfortable and worse yet, create unflattering bulges of excess skin.
The larger your bust, the more difficult it can be to find a reliable strapless bra. If you’re well endowed, you’ll get much more support from a wider band with three to four hooks in the back. Another option is the convertible “longline” style, which has a bodice for extra support below the bust. Not only will you get maximum lift, but the bodice has a slimming effect as well.
You’ll save yourself loads of time, energy — not to mention money — if you opt for a professional bra fitting on your next trip to Avec Amour. The service is free, discreet and will totally change your strapless bra experience.
One of Avec Amour’s top selling brands is Fine Lines Lingerie. Aimed at women on-the-go, this leading Australian brand has developed a cult following for its slip-free designs and all-day comfort. One of the brand’s most popular styles is the Satin Strapless bra, which converts four ways and is made with a super soft fabric. The Refined Low-Cut Strapless bra is another fan favorite — it converts six ways (normal, cross-back, strapless, halter, normal with low back, halter with low back) and features concealed side boning for a sculpted silhouette plus a low cut front to cater to any plunge neckline. That skin-hugging strapless dress will thank you.
Once you’ve found the perfect bra and the right fit, it should last you for years to come. The next question is: How to wear a strapless bra? It’s totally up to you. Strapless bras are incredibly liberating — wear them with skimpy sun dresses, bandeaux tops, wedding gowns and, of course, with strapless dresses for those steamy date nights in Singapore.
