A pretty bra is no use to anyone if it doesn’t fit right. You don’t want a strapless bra that’s always falling down, you don’t want an underwire bra that’s always jabbing you in the armpit, and you definitely don’t want a bra that shows underneath all those cute, slightly sheer summer tops you have.

If You Need a Bra for Hot Days

A long-line bra is essential for the hot summer days when you’re dreading extra padding but still need support. This one even works well under crop tops and sheer numbers.

If You Need a Little Lift

Here’s an upgrade from the simple T-shirt bra, for those days when you want a little contouring. This OnGassamer bra has a seamless finish and super-low plunged neckline.

If You Need a Super-Low Plunge Bra

First, this is totally seamless. Next, it’s the lowest plunge bra out there in both the front and back, which allows you to wear it as a strapless, conventional, halter, or crossover. And third, it’s only $35.

If You’re Looking for Comfort

If you don’t need a lot of support, or if you’re going for comfort over everything else, this Hanro bra is the best. The fabric is incredibly soft and has the tiniest of triangle cups, making it the perfect no-sweat summer bra.

If You Need a Strapless Bra

A self-adhesive bra isn’t for everyone, but if you apply it carefully, it’ll be a lifesaver when you’re wearing halter or backless items.

If You Need a Bra That Won’t Call Attention to Itself

A classic stretch-satin bra that’s so soft it will make it feel like you’re wearing nothing at all — but with molded cups that provide support and ensure subtlety underneath every top.
