Summer Bra Solutions for Tricky Tops & Dresses

Summer Bra Solutions | BondGirlGlam.com

When you’re naturally well-endowed as a woman, fashion is no joke.  I see all these cute tops, dresses, and swimsuits I wish I could wear but don’t because I need that support up top.  God am I jealous of women who can just throw on anything, with or without a bra, whether naturally small-chested or surgically-enhanced.

Speaking of boob jobs… I wouldn’t mind one in the future after I’m done breastfeeding all my babies so maybe I could feel comfortable enough to go bra-less for once.  In the meantime, this is where good bras come into play.

I’m teaming up today with my long-time sponsor Le Mystère to share 3 bras that can help my busty babes wear more fun tops and dresses this summer. Be sure to enter the giveaway below for your own Le Mystère summer bra & panty set!

With the one-shoulder style, you can obviously wear a strapless bra, which will totally do the trick (my recommendation here).  However, if you want something with a little more support, try a multi-way convertible bra like Le Mystère’s Infinite Possibilities Plunge Bra.

I’m including it first because I’ve been wearing it the most out of these 3.  When you get it, you’ll notice it looks like a regular deep-plunge padded bra.  Upon closer inspection, you’ll see that there are multiple places you can clip, unclip and rearrange the straps to create a whole lot of bra options.

As you’ll see below there are a ton of ways to rearrange the straps.  They don’t show how to do a one-shoulder look, but I figured it out for you girls (see the flatlay photo below for the strap arrangement — basically just move both back straps over to one side and add a little length to the strap that will go diagonally across your chest).

Plunging Neckline: Ultimate Plunge Bra

Summer Bra Solutions | BondGirlGlam.com

I tend to keep the girls hidden most days, because it’s really easy to look not-so-classy with big boobs.  Plus I feel more comfortable with them covered and supported for my daily wife and mama duties.

However, that’s not to say I don’t believe in embracing what your mama gave ya.

I’m honestly sometimes just amazed at how good Kim Kardashian’s boobs look in all her plunging neckline outfits.  Granted she has assistants and stylists to help her get ready and likely uses a good amount of tape, I’m still just in awe of them.

FUN FACT:  I always knew Kim contoured her boobs with makeup, but I recently heard she has an actual makeup artist or a specific makeup routine for contouring her boobs?  Ok… I don’t have that.  But I do have good bras!

The Le Mystère Ultimate Plunge Bra is a pretty awesome tool to have in your wardrobe for those daring necklines.  It’s basically built like their strapless bra, but there’s 4 (rose gold, might I add) metal hooks in the front that let you customize how low you want to go.

NOTE:  This bra only has the closure in the front, so it’s not that great for everyday wear unless you’re nimble with your fingers.  It’s wonderful for more special days when you just feel like wearing a low-cut top or dress.

Not to sound vain or anything (says the fashion blogger with 200+ blog posts with photos of herself, ha), but I was actually kind of surprised at how good my boobs looked with this bra on.  It gives them this really nice shape on top that I’m not sure how to describe but… basically the exact amount of lift that I want and not too squished together and uniboob-y.  Just pretty, I don’t know how else to explain it!

I have a few racerback tops and dresses in my summer wardrobe, so this bra gets the second amount of most wear.  It’s super pretty with the lace detail yet could pass as a t-shirt bra with the smoothness of the front.

As you can see below, there’s a hook on top that you can either have fastened or unfastened for 2 different amounts of racerback-ness.

If you want a pretty t-shirt bra option but also wear a lot of tops and dresses that cut in at the shoulders, this one is for you.

    I love love love off the shoulder styles but never wear them for myself because I find strapless bras so uncomfortable. I bought a bunch for the baby though! I usually wear racerback because I can get a bra on with those. These Le Mystere bras look amazing!!!

      Don’t they?! I know, strapless bras are tricky. I have the ones from LM, and they work well for me. Maybe give them a try?

    Love your blog!! You always look so cute and put together 🙂 I’m pregnant and I feel like all I live in these days is a sports bra and tshirts… (Such a fashion statement I know!) I really need to invest in some good bras but with new baby and all the other fun stuff (like moving into a new home..) I ain’t got the money for that right now!! Lol judge me.. Anyways it would be awesome to win a set 🙂

    Wow those bras look amazing and seem like they have very good support. Being a big chested girl myself i have a hard time finding good bras, so I really need to invest In something like this.

      It’s especially important to invest in a few good bras when you need that support. After all, we wear these garments every day! xo

    I love to wear tank tops. So I wear a lot of racer back style.

      Love racer backs! You get a little more color on your shoulders with them too. x
