Your Sexy Summer Bra Guide

Ladies, summer is officially here and with it comes the sexiest skin-baring tops! Nobody wants to be the girl with her bra showing or the girl who had to wear something ugly because she didn’t have the right bra for her trendy top. New You is here to help you navigate through the wide world of bras and find the perfect ones that you need to exude sheer summer sexiness.

The plunging neckline has been a huge trend this year. Some of us opt to go bra-less while others need a little lift. If that is the case, the U Plunge Deep V Neck Convertible Bra is perfect for you!

Another summer staple is the backless crop tops and dresses. Those chicken cutlet bras are so two years ago, not to mention, they the worst. The key to nailing this look is getting a bra that has adhesive strips on the side, like Nasty Gal’s Bare Minimum Backless Bra. The thing that makes this type of bra better than those old chicken cutlet looking ones is because you can stick the bra a little tighter on your body to get some real push up. No sagginess – you can control the width of this one!

Halter tops are a must-have this summer! If you aren’t a fan of going completely strapless, this Jezebel’s Seamless Convertible Push-Up Bra would be perfect for you. It still gives you the support of a fully strapped bra with it’s many convertible straps. Pretty much your all-in-one bra. Get those back muscles ready!

Bralette

Bralettes are the best thing since sliced bread because they can be worn with practically anything. You know those cute muscle tees you are always eyeing but then not buying because what in the world kind of bra do you wear with that? Bralette. You can wear them casually under a loose fitting tank top or you can wear them by themselves with high-waisted bottoms. The possibilities are literally endless. Bralettes are the socially visible version of bra straps so anything goes, really. Try Free People’s Galoon Lace Racerback to nail the casual bralette look.

Ruffled, off-the-shoulder strapless tops are back (thanks to Coachella). The best investment you can get is a quality strapless bra. One that gives you the lift and coverage you need. Maidenform’s Women‘s Comfort Convertible Strapless Plunge Bra can be your next go-to summer bra.

And of course, for when you want to break the rules and show off your bra, you’ll need a lace balconette. My favorite look is a black lace balconette under a sheer white tank or tee, but you can do any color your heart desires! For this look try the Calvin Klein Spacer Sling Balconette Bra.

Happy bra shopping!
