Summer is here soon and Off the shoulder tops seems to be the trend again, for this year. Especially in lighter colours such as whites, blush tones and light blues. However, there is a slight issue with wearing off the shoulder tops and that is usually what to wear underneath to avoid any wardrobe malfunction. Similar issues arise wearing backless tops too: you require a boob support but don’t want straps on the back, here are bra alternatives.
The ideal thing is to really wear pretty tops, with no bra but with cleavage. I have compiled a list.
How to wear backless / Off the shoulder styles
- Strapless bra – If wearing an off the shoulder top in lighter colours, it is advisable to wear a flesh coloured (nude) strapless bra. This works with this type of tops as you are only baring the shoulders, so the only thing that should go is the straps.
- Backless silicone / Invisible bra – Bra without any straps anywhere and that is what Self Adhesive Silicone Bras* by Kissbobo is about. It is reusable and gives cleavage like a bra would without the back/shoulder strap pain. It is also great for those with slightly larger boobs (C D cups) as it is comfortable, will offer a bit of support and will stay in place for quite a long time. Kissbobo invisible bra comes with a purple case where it is stored and instructions all in a box. The instructions are very easy to follow. What I love about this is, it has a clasp on it too where you connect the two together to create a cleavage and a bit of push up. The price is very affordable too.
– There are many reviews on the site as well by other users.
- Nipple covers / Pasties – These are more useful to those with smaller boobs. It covers but doesn’t provide any support or cleavage. Available nearly everywhere, ranging in prices and colours to match your skin tone.
You can also tape your blouse, sew inserts into your blouse and of course, you can always go braless and be free. You don’t have to care about what other people will think or say.
Do you have any advice on wearing backless / off the shoulder tops without a bra?
