Finding your perfect nude bra can be a challenge. We already have to choose between molded or contour cups, full cup or plunge styles… what else?! We’ve compiled some of our favorite go-to colors and cup styles from widely known European brands such as Empreinte, PrimaDonna, Chantelle, Marie Jo, and Simone Perele to make the sea of options less overwhelming!
For light skin tones, we recommend the Marie Jo L’Aventure Tom in cafe latte, the Simone Perele Andora in toffee, and the Empriente Thalia in caramel. The Tom (pictured to the left) is a fantastic everyday t-shirt bra by Belgium based company Marie Jo, and is available in bra sizes 30 A to 38 E. It comes in both full cup and plunge styles. The Andora is a balconette style bra made with an innovative spacer knit fabric that is light, allowing your skin to breathe. For larger cup sizes, the Empriente Thalia is a great way to add dramatic lift and shape. It comes in both molded and contour cups. All three brands boast smooth-cup silhouettes for everyday, practical wear.
For medium skin tones, we recommend the Marie Jo Avero in cognac, the Chantelle Hedona in skin, and the Prima Donna Satin in summer glow. The Avero is another great t-shirt bra, like the Tom, and the golden hue of cognac is oh-so flattering on medium skin tones. The Avero collection offers a variety of styles and cup shapes, ranging from full cups to plunge (heart and tulip-shaped) cups. The Hedona does a fabulous job of lifting and shaping. It is also our go-to for a minimizer bra! Prima Donna (pictured to the right) specializes in larger cup sizes (30 B-46 H). They offer a variety of cup styles in the Satin collection, all of which are available in their medium-toned peachy nude: summer glow.
For darker skin tones, we recommend the Simone Perele Andora in cafe so french, the Empriente Thalia in vison, and the Empriente Melody in wenge. The Melody (pictured to the left) and Thalia collections come in contour and molded cups, as well as plunge and full cup styles to accommodate any selection of dress. Exquisitely detailed and beautifully constructed, both of these Empreinte collections bring you exceptional support and unmatched quality.
