The plunge bra is perfect for low-cut tops and tops with plunging necklines. This style of bra is perfect for those low-cut tops without the bra being seen. Since the best part about summer fashion is showing off the curves, many plunge bras also work as push up bras taking the cleavage from four to ten real quick and I love it!  Especially under clothing with scoop or deep v-neck clothing!

Strappy Lace Bralette at Torrid.com

Bralettes have become a summer favorite this year. They’re the next best thing to a cami just with a little more sass. The strappy one are so fun to wear under a tank or tee for a that caged peek a boo look. Another fun way to wear the bralette is under a sheer or lace top, I personally like working mine with a pair of high waist flare jeans and kimono or longline cardigan.

  • It would be great to get a blog on the full-support bra styles that work best for those of us who are short-waisted but busty. I find that a lot of the good support bras out there have too much underwire in the middle. I’m 5″ 0′ first thing in the morning and wear a 38F or 38G, depending on the manufacturer. I would love to be able to easily shop online for bras that sit snug against my sternum in front and don’t poke me in the eye every time I sit down at my desk. Bonus points for highlighting the bras that don’t make my boobs look like two oversized breakfast muffins strapped to my front.

  • I love the choices but I wish that the butterfly came in a much bigger size but I know its hard to. Curvy kate, some panache and goddess and Elomi is all I can wear. I mean thats it, and Elmoi has one razor back one that is a no no lol So I get over it and wear my bra because let me face it the bralettes that try to be for me isnt I wouldnt leave to check my mail downstairs in it. lol If you wear an uk size J-kk you know what I mean there is not only a few but they are at least $60 for one!! If simply be has it on sale its there one hour gone the next. If its not one problem its another lol
