For such a small piece of material, the bra has a lengthy job description. Add ‘sexy’ to the job title and a lot of bra styles just don’t cut it.
Women know what makes a bra unsexy: lack of support, awkward shape, poor fit and those perpetually falling straps, to name a few. We also know what we like and consider whatever bra styles we wear sexy because we make them sexy.
Today, many bras are designed to be both sexy and functional; to make the woman look and feel spectacular. For men who feel clueless and women who want to try a different sexy bra style without feeling like a porn star, here are the top ten sexy bra styles.
10. T-Shirt Bra
Designed to provide a seamless look beneath tight t-shirts, the t-shirt bra is a soft, stretchy favorite with many women. If you find fitted t-shirt and jeans sexy, you’ll have the casual attitude to transform this simple bra to ultra hot.
9. Full Coverage Bra
Full coverage bras are for full-figured ladies who want support and stability, and they come with a variety of sexy twists. Look for balcony styling that gives breasts a youthful lift, and glamorous accents like sheer fabric, ruffles or a center bow.
While most bras are designed for a woman’s bust, the racerback bra draws attention to her sexy back. A bra with lace overlay at the sides and lace racerback will have her twirling to show off every sensual detail.
7. Balconette Bra
Popular in the 1950s, the balconette bra gives full-sized woman a Va-Va-Voom lift with an elegant neckline. Underwire cups provide support and compliment curves. Lace trim with a small bow at the center add a soft, feminine touch to this sexy siren style.
6. Pushup Bra
Say good-bye to bulky padding and odd, unflattering lines. For women who are small on top and want to enhance their shape, push-up bras give you a classic silhouette, in soft, silky materials that come in every color. A lace center gore, the small stretch of fabric connecting the two cups, adds a romantic detail. Look for bras with cups that taper at the top for a natural, seamless look under clothes, and contoured underwire stretch cups in a soft microfiber.
5. Front-closing Bra
Perhaps the sexiest bra to put on or take off is the front closing bra – no more cumbersome hooks in the back! This figure-flattering bra enhances cleavage and frames the neckline with a deep V cut.
4. Strapless Bra
Few things make a woman feel less sexy than having to pull up or adjust her strapless bra every few minutes. On the other hand, a strapless bra that fits well, stays in place, doesn’t gap on top AND makes you feel like a bombshell is ideal for all occasions. Look for a detail like lace trim to frame your neckline and underwire for support and lift.
3. Lace Bra
Black, red, pink, white – strapless, backless, padded, demi – a lace bra is the first look that comes to mind as the classic sexy bra. Throughout history, lace is one fabric that dances the lines of modesty and sensuality. Made to be seen and touched, a lace bra is a sexy bra regardless of color or structure.
2. Sheer Bra
Throw bust-enhancement to the wind and show what you’ve got. Sheer bras flaunt a woman’s natural shape in sexy sheer fabric that is as freeing to wear as it is sexy to look at. What could be sexier than a playful, peek-a-boo bra? We’ve come a long way since the contraptions that once served to support a woman’s bosom.
1. Demi-cup Bra
When it comes to sexy bras, less is definitely more and the demi cup bra takes home five lace stars. Providing full support and stability, demi cup bras are made of revealing half cups. A solid color compliments a woman’s natural shape while placing visual focus on the skin, or a lacey of patterned demi cup bra is simply seductive. You can’t go wrong.
Mercy on the well-meaning boyfriend or spouse who tries to buy his lady sexy underwear and comes back with a string. Men and women clearly have different views on what makes a bra sexy, but there’s a vast middle ground and that is where you’ll find the sexiest bra styles. We can all agree that lace and silk can stay, and anything that hurts or sags can go, yes?
