This is a "step out of your comfort zone, may not be for everyone post", BUT I want to cover the topic so.. here we are.
SHOP THE LOOK
This look can definitely be ,ahem, risky, but it doesn't have to be! I know we're rounding out summer but this trend will go into the fall months and bralettes are here to stay! So what exactly is a "bralette" and how is it different from a regular bra? Well, it's basically a smaller version of a crop top, one that is meant to be seen but not on its own. There are some bralettes that are soft and lacey like a racerback bra. These are meant to be worn under a low cut shirt, romper, or anything else that you feel shows too much skin. There are also some bralettes like the one pictured below, that is able to be worn as a crop top usually with a vest, flannel shirt, or other outerwear. This type is also great to pair with high-waisted shorts that way you aren't baring too much mid section. HERE are a bunch of ideas to help you visually see what I'm explaining.
A great way to incorporate a cute bralette is with your favorite basic white tee. You can pair your white tee, ripped jeans (or shorts), and a red bralette and you just took your outfit from basic to fun and flirty! For the colder months, add one under your favorite cozy sweater and wear it off one shoulder to add a little sex appeal.
So now that we've talked about what a bralette is as an option for a plunging neckline, let's move on to how to prevent a wardrobe malfunction! If you're wearing a deep cut top or dress and you want to skip the bralette, you're going to need to make sure that the girls don't make an appearance. Below I'm listing 4 ways to keep from having a wardrobe malfunction.
1. Be sure to use double sided tape! If you have any second guesses on whether or not something may happen, go ahead and use some tape to secure yourself.
2. Opt for a plunge bra instead of nothing. THIS would be a perfect option, and it comes in black or nude.
3. Find the right cut. It is harder to go with low cut tops if you're bigger than a C cup because it automatically makes people think you're trying to show off everything. Make sure the top/dress you pick has plenty of room for the same amount of coverage as someone with a small bust. For my bustier ladies try something like this dress. I like this one for bigger chests because its a slim v cut and has plenty of room on both sides for coverage.
4. One last way you can help with a deep cut top is to distract how much skin is showing by adding a necklace. This way it's not so bare, and has more texture to the area.
I hope this gives you a little confidence to go outside your comfort zone and try something new. If you're nervous, try wearing something for your husband on a date night one night. See how you feel and his input.
