Your 5 Essential Summertime Bras
(with your essential summertime playlist thrown in)
Here comes the sun, little darling. Our moods are lighter and so is our clothing. It’s time for flouncy sundresses with spaghetti straps, body-hugging tanks, colourful tees and crisp white linen blouses. It’s also time to assess your lingerie drawer to ensure each of your outfits can be as carefree as summer. Not sure which bra to wear with that new top or dress you bought? Don’t worry about a thing. (Cause every little thing gonna be alright.) Whether you’re hanging out under the boardwalk, on the dock of the bay, or Margaritaville, we’ve got you covered. Truthfully, in summertime, the living is easy when you’ve got your essential summertime bras.
The T-Shirt Bra
Verity by Empreinte is smooth, supportive, invisible and incredibly comfortable. The spacer foam cups mould to your shape and help keep you cool as the temperatures rise. No wonder it’s so popular among our customers and staff. Your new favourite t-shirt bra is available in blush and Ardoise. A welcome alternative to beige and black but equally as versatile.
The White Bra
Like a tall glass of ice water on a scorching hot day, Delphine by Marie Jo is clean, cool and fresh. With delicate details, round shape and pretty straps that convert to halter back, this white moulded cup bra gives a sleek silhouette. The attractive yet simple design will remind you of easy, breezy, uncomplicated summers past. Remember the summer of ‘69?
The Hot Child in the City Bra
Efforia from PrimaDonna Twist has a fun and flirty retro vibe. Available in full cup or padded longline, this bra is the cure for boredom your lingerie drawer has been screaming for. Caution: the combination of beautiful fuchsia roses and sassy snake print means you might be tempted to wear this bra without a top. We wholeheartedly approve.
The Pop of Colour Bra
Spice up your summer wardrobe with a punch of pink. Part sweet, part sexy, Delight by PrimaDonna is decidedly feminine and shapely. The balcony style will complement much of your summer wardrobe and is the perfect low-profile underpinning for many of your low-cut necklines. Alternatively, it can be that pop of colour as refreshing as a popsicle on a sizzling summer afternoon. Wear this fabulous bra under something sheer and you’ll have everyone admiring your style.
The Convertible Bra
Don’t let the decorative straps fool you. The spacer foam Andora bra by Simone Perele is more than just a pretty face. It’s a workhorse and definitely one of your essential summertime bras. Not only is it smooth under your clothes, but the straps convert into a halter or crisscross. Then again, they’re so cute you might want to leave them peeking out. The perfect foundation for many of your summer tops and dresses. Yes, it does come in your basic black and blush pink, but why not try something bold? After all, this gorgeous limited-edition pink ruby colour virtually disappears under white.
By the way, we also carry an assortment of strapless bras and adhesive solutions for those tricky-to-wear necklines and barely-there backs!
