Bras – we wear them for support but is it too much to ask for a little extra flavor? Women of all shapes and sizes deserve to have the option to wear sexy bras. Read on to see which bras will work best for your body. Trust me, there is a sexy bra for you!

Wacoal Petites Embrace Lace Push Up Bra

If You’re Petite with Small Breasts

Sometimes you wish your boobies looked like Pam Anderson and some days, well, you don’t. If you’re a petite women with small breasts, you can easily manipulate your cleavage with a bra with removable push-up pads or “cookies.” Put the pads in on the days you’re feeling frisky and take em’ out on the days you aren’t. It’s that easy.

Try This Bra: Wacoal Petites Embrace Lace Push Up Bra – This molded padded bra has removable cookies so you can control your size. It looks great under t-shirts but has pretty lace that will make you feel sexy underneath your clothes. A win-win if you ask me!

Le Mystere Isabella All Over Lace Bra

If You’re Petite with Large Breasts

A common problem for petite women with large breasts is underwires that are too long. Because your frame is small, but you need more coverage, the underwire pokes through to the side because it has nowhere else to go. This can get very uncomfortable if the problem persists. A great solution for this issue is a balconnet style. Because the cup isn’t full coverage, the underwire is shorter and won’t poke, however, it still has enough coverage to support you.

Try This Bra: Le Mystere Isabella All Over Lace Bra – This beautiful bra has lightly padded molded cups and runs from 32B up to 38F. This feminine style has lace over both cups and a seamless bra band. You can’t go wrong with sexy and comfortable.

Lunaire Mykonos Front Closure Bra

If You’re Average with Average Breast Size

You would think with all of the bras being tailored to the “average” body, that “average” women would have no problems finding fantastic bras. This may be true but only for those women who actually know their real size. Because there is an abundance of bras for those sizes, women don’t necessarily see the need to get fit. This often leads to compromising either the band or cup. So ladies, if you’re wearing an ill-fitting bra, get fit! Once you do, your options will expand ten-fold.

Try this Bra: Lunaire Mykonos Front Closure Bra – This adjustable racerback bra has a sexy lace back and v-neck front for those low-cut shirts. This bra is great because it can be worn with tank tops or t-shirts with ease.

Elila Jacquard Soft Cup Bra

If You’re Plus Size

One of the biggest complaints we hear from plus size women is the shortage of sexy bras in their sizes. I mean, seriously, how hard can it be to make a bra in colors besides black, white and beige. Luckily, the manufacturers are taking notice and more and more brands are coming out with colorful and sexy bras in plus sizes.  Sheer lace and fun colors let you try fashion styles without sacrificing full cup coverage.

Try This Bras: Elila Jacquard Soft Cup Bra in Lilac – Yes, you read (and see) correctly – LILAC. It’s the newest shade from Elila and it joins the standard colors (black, white, beige & mocha) as well as beautiful deep Valentine’s Day red. This is a wireless bra with non-stretch, triple ply padded straps and a wide band for support. The best part? It runs up to a size 50N.

How Did She Do That?

Ever see your favorite celebrity sporting a dress that defies all bra logic? You’re not alone. Thankfully we’re here to help you out. Read on to learn which bras work best with fashion’s hottest trends.

Jennifer Lopez in Robert Cavalli

Deep Plunge Dresses

Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to jaw-dropping, low-plunging necklines. From the infamous green Versace dress she wore to the 2000 Grammy’s to the Robert Cavalli couture gown she wore to the Benjamin Button premiere, her choices always make you ask “how do her boobs do that?!” The answer to that question is “easily.” As in you can easily accomplish the deep plunge look with the proper bra. Introducing the Fashion Forms Convertible U-Plunge Bra. This bra is great because it has an extra low bra band, enhances your cleavage and can be worn in three ways. It’s also a steal at $27. You don’t need J Lo money to look like a million bucks.

Blake Lively

Asymmetrical Dresses

The asymmetrical look is here to stay and stars like Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Anna Paquin are more than happy about that. Each star has been photographed in this trendy style and each has had fantastic looking boobs. But how? How do you have them both be on the same level without showing a bra strap? The answer, yet again, is “easily” – just wear a convertible bra. We recommend the Natori Sheer Scroll Convertible Plunge Bra. This bra has a low-cut neckline and removable straps that can be converted into a criss-cross, ideal for the asymmetrical dress. You can wear it with a plethora of other styles too so the $58 price tag is well worth it.

Gabourey Sidibe

Strapless Gowns for Plus Size Shapes

It is a common misconception that plus size women can’t wear strapless gowns because there are no bras to hold up the girls. Gabourey Sidibe, star of the hit film Precious, proved otherwise. Gabourey made waves when she showed up on numerous red carpets in strapless, form fitting gowns. Her statement to the world was she was proud of her body and wouldn’t let her size stop her from wearing glamorous gowns. To achieve a similar look, we recommend the Elila Strapless Longline Bra. This bra runs up to 46H and comes in black, nude and white. Not only is it pretty, it provides support in all of the right places.


Backless Gowns

Backless gowns are sexy and classy, so it’s no surprise this style is a hit on the red carpet. Celebs like Beyonce, Demi Moore and Taylor Swift have been photographed showing off their backs and looking great doing so. So what’s their secret bra? The Nu Bra, a Silicone Adhesive Bra. This bra has adhesive on the inside so it will stay on all night. It also has the added benefit of a center clasp that clips the two cups together for shape and cleavage. Win win.

You don’t have to be a celebrity to look great in fancy dresses. You just have to have the bra-ledge. So start avoiding fashion faux pas and get the proper bras for your dresses. Have a hard-to-wear dress that could you a little bit of bra magic? Let us know in the comments!
