Underneath it all

bras for party outfits

Winter’s not only about hibernating in your pyjamas… we’ve got events to attend! And Bravissimo girls know that every great party outfit starts with a great base. If your outfit is…


No straps? No problem. We stock strapless bras up to a J cup so you can expand your party dress wardrobe like never before. You might even want to add one to your collection to pair with cold shoulder or bardot tops, so it can be part of your everyday collection. You might want to try Luxe by Curvy Kate – this is our bestselling strapless bra and with seriously good reason!

If you’re rocking a lower neckline, you might want a bra with a little less coverage (without compromising on support, of course!) Plunge styles and half cups are great options – both finish lower down our boobs than other styles, and all of ours give the support us Bravissimo girls rely on!


If your outfit is seriously figure-hugging and you feel like you need a super smooth line underneath, a padded bra can be a great idea.

Smoothing bras come in all shapes and sizes! You could go for a moulded or non-moulded style, with or without padding (and don’t worry, the padding won’t necessarily add bulk). Idol is a well-loved moulded and padded style that gives a very smooth line under clothes, and Satine is a non-moulded lightly padded bra that loads of Bravissimo girls love for the smooth look it gives them.



Low-back bra converter from Maidenform – if your dress is a little lower at the back and you’re worried that your bra’s going to show, try this out. It attaches where your bra’s hook and eyes are, then wraps around you, to attach again at the front in a lower position. Sorcery…!

Racerback clips – these will pull your straps in towards each other so racerback dresses don’t have to be struck off as a party option anymore!

If you’ve got a tricky outfit and need any more help matching it with the right underwear, we’d really love to hear from you. You can get in touch via live chat, email or just call 01926 459 859.
