The Top Bra Brands for Brides

 

 

Bridal Bra Shopping 101

 

Tips:

The style of your wedding gown will largely dictate which bra you should wear. A low back requires a backless bra, while a strapless dress will call for a bra sans straps. Ask yourself if you want the support of an underwire, or would you prefer a less constrictive bralette? And be real with yourself; if you have a larger bust, you may want to skip an adhesive bra. Read on to learn more about the different bra options out there, and think about how each one would pair with the gown you fell in love with.

 

 

Bridal Bra Shopping Considerations

 

Cost:

Shop bras between $30 and $450, with most styles costing between $40 and $80.

 

 

Color:

Brides will want to stick with white, nude or skin-tone bras.

 

 

Style:

Sure, some bra styles are lacier and more flirty while others boast breathable fabrics and smoothing support over sex appeal. But yes, you can look sexy and wear a practical bra. Keep scrolling, brides! We have some fun and impressively functional bridal bras to share with you.

  

Other Considerations:

If you wear your bra often, and it stops feeling supportive or you have back, shoulder or neck pain, replace it at least once a year if not more frequently. A bra you only sport for special occasions (like your wedding!) will get more mileage, and you can keep it on hand for years, assuming it still fits.
