1 // Off the Shoulder

This fun design has been all the rage this season, and we don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon. From dresses to tops, everyone seems to be rocking a version of this sassy, shoulder bearing beauty.  If you’re stumped on what bra to pair with this top we definitely recommend a great-fitting, streamlined strapless bra like the Simone Perele Celeste 3D Strapless

2 // Peek A Boo

While showing your bra is traditionally a fashion “no-no”, the tastefully exposed bralette is definitely an exception. A small hint of lace peeking out of the neckline of a top can take your outfit to the next level and give your ensemble a subtly feminine feel. Our Hanky Panky signature lace crossover bralette is the perfect companion to your favorite v-neck tee or lightweight tank- just the right amount of coverage and sexiness.

3 // Open Back

This is arguably the hardest style of top to plan for when it comes to undergarments. You don’t want to completely abandon coverage or support, but   a traditional bra is definitely out of the question. Enter our favorite lingerie hack- Silicone CoverUps. These style savers are hypo allergenic, self-adhesive, and reusable up to 10 times. Whether your top has an open back or is just super strappy, you can’t go wrong using these discreet (and comfortable) covers.

4 // Light & Sheer

The lightweight, semi-sheer white blouse is a staple summer staple for a reason. It goes with everything, repels sun-rays, and is breathable in hot temperatures. While some sheer tops look great with a statement making bra underneath, we love the simplicity of a skin-tone colored t shirt bra like the Marie Jo L’venture Tom Seamless


Happy summer styling!
