Strapless bras for women were introduced in the late 1930’s, but they didn't achieve popularity until the 1950’s, when risque evening gowns were in vogue. It’s been fifty more years and strapless bras have developed a bad rap, because many women believe they can’t find a strapless bra that gives them the same shape as their normal bras. And beyond shape and comfort, a lot of women have thought they couldn’t even find strapless bras that stay up. But in today’s womens lingerie market, there are more options than ever before. It can fall into any of the following categories:
Plunge Strapless Bras
Low-back for Backless Dresses
The new evolution of strapless bras feature high-tech constructions that are lightweight, reusable and more comfortable and natural looking than the earlier incarnations.
Strapless Bra Styles
Longline bras are technically a type of strapless bra because they don’t have any straps, though the support comes from being firmly anchored around the waist. We carry a variety of longline styles including the Carnival Bridal Splendor Low Plunge, the Goddess Smooth Underwire, the Wacoal Long Line, the Goddess Smooth Simplicity Bridal and the Carnival Bridal Splendor Satin bras. This variety offers great support and often acts as a slimming agent as well. Another angle the strapless bra takes is the tube top, or bandeau, styling.
The dominant style in strapless bras, however, still features underwire support, side boning, and some kind of silicone beading to hold it in place. This style oincludes the Goddess Cantilevered, the Goddess Smooth Simplicity Bridal, the Lily of France Value-In-Style Convertible Strapless Bump Pad, and even the Le Mystere Renaissance Dream Shameless Underwire bras. The latter features seamless, padded cups for a smooth outer appearance and is something of a revolution in the strapless bra for its nearly invisible look under clothing.
