Summer Bra Faux Pas

Summer Bra Faux Pas

Bonjour, summer! With temps heating up, we’ve entered the most fun time of year—and the most challenging season for bras. From off-the-shoulder tops to strappy tanks, summertime exposes a multitude of possible bra malfunctions.

Here are our top-named bra offenders for summer (and their solution) so you can breeze through summer style:

Tired Nude Bras

Sift through your lingerie drawer and pull out any worn-out favorite nude bras. Summer is the time to update your go-to nudes. Mix up classic nudes with chic neutrals like blush and crisp whites for an easy-chic look that appears more elegant and intentional.

Unkempt Straps

When done right, showing peeks of your bra strap from under your outfit exudes confidence and style—HOWEVER the look calls for straps in mint condition. Keep your bras clean and replace them when the straps are worn and faded. Opt for slender straps or touches of embroidery in colors that coordinate with your outfit (we love the Simone Perele Wish Demi).

The Slipping Strapless

There are few things less elegant than the sight of a woman hoisting up her bra. Women commonly opt for a larger band size in search of comfort, resulting in a slipping strapless and less support. Look for a high quality strapless that won’t let you down, like the Eden Strapless (up to F cup!).

Bra Misfits

Summer’s form-fitting silhouettes and shoulder-baring tops call for a flawlessly fitting bra. Get a professional bra fitting and you’ll have smooth (and seamless) sailing all summer long.

Bras that Overheat

Hot summer days call for breathable bras that keep you cool and comfortable. Avoid thickly padded bras or bulky sports bras and opt for airy bralettes and easy T-shirt bras with 3D spacer fabric designed to keep you cool.

The most important faux pas of all is forgetting that your lingerie is the first layer of your look. Create your summer style from the inside out and you’ll look (and feel) confident all season long!
