Bra Solutions for Partywear

A guide to bra solutions for any outfit!

You’re getting ready for a big night out, your outfit is sorted, but you’re wondering what to wear underneath? No outfit should be limited by your bra straps, so read on to discover the magic of lingerie and bras for partywear so you can find the perfect lingerie to wear under any outfit (even those tricky ones!).

What bra to wear with low or racer back dresses and tops?

If you're worried that your bra is going to show, try a low back converter – they're perfect for when you want to know how to wear a low back dress with your normal bra. This handy bra solution means you can maintain the support you get from your usual bra while preventing it from showing through your outfit.

How does a low back bra converter work?

A low back converter works by attaching to the hook and eye of your bra, then wraps around your body and fastens again at the front in a lower position – sorcery!

Or if your dress or top is racerback you can simply use a racerback clip. A racerback clip will pull your straps in towards each other so racerback dresses and tops don’t have to be struck off as a party option anymore!

What bra do you wear with a low-cut dress or top?

For plunging necklines, reach for a bra with a little less coverage…but no less support! Plunge bras have a low centre front which creates a deep V shape, while half cups are cut straight across but finish lower on your boobs than a balconette bra. Both will be a no-show under lower-cut outfits (and they’re a great option if you want to show off your fabulous cleavage!).

What underwear should I wear with a tight dress?

Looking for a smooth silhouette under a figure-hugging outfit? T-shirt bras simply disappear under close-fitting tops and dresses – a-bra-cad-a-bra!

Padded bras are made from thin foam to create a smooth shape – the padding doesn’t always mean extra bulk! Some T-shirt bras, like the Idol bra, are moulded (which means they’re seam-free) and others, like the Satine bra, use barely-there seams to give a smooth line under your clothes. You can also take a look at our shapewear guide to help create a smooth silhouette.



What type of bra to wear with off shoulder tops, halter necks and spaghetti straps?

Those of us with big boobs can feel supported without straps – yes really! Multiway bras are a great option with halter dresses and spaghetti straps, as well as strapless and off-the-shoulder dresses. Bravissimo girl favourite Luxe by Curvy Kate has detachable straps that you can wear in lots of different ways (and it offers the support that we Bravissimo girls rely on, of course!).

Bra solutions for backless dresses – How to Wear Nipple Covers?

Nipple covers stick on and help to stop your nipples showing. They can be worn as an alternative to a bra when wearing a backless dress or for when you want to cover your nipples with close-fitting or sheer clothes.

Silicone nipple covers mould to the shape of your boobs for a natural look and are a great option under a bikini or swimsuit. Fabric nipple covers are made of soft lace. The petal-shaped design is really discreet and works well under thin clothes or sheer bras. So, if you want to know what to wear when you can’t wear a bra, or how to hide your nipples under a thin bra or swimwear - we’ve got you covered!
