Very gets Intimate – A guide to choosing the correct Bra for your Dress

As we head towards November lots of us may have Christmas parties to attend and it’s a great time to pick out that special dress that’s going to wow your family and friends.

With so many styles to choose from its no wonder that many of us order in excitement and then realise something is missing. We have the shoes, the matching bag and even our vital accessories to add that extra sparkle but when we put that dress on…. it’s only now that the missing item becomes apparent.

We haven’t got a bra that suits!

It’s ok though ladies – don’t fret – I have done a little research and picked out some of the best suited bras for all dress styles so you don’t have to do a last minute frantic search on the high street.

1. One – Shoulder

The dress – A style that is bang on trend this year and spotted on all the celebs, I think this style is very flirtatious with the focus on that shoulder, the secret of revealing a little yet keeping the rest hidden – sexy to the max!

The Bra – This Multi plunge Bra by Wonderbra boasts that it is capable of being worn in hundreds of ways due to its additional eyelets to the front and back – with claims like that it is a definite must have!

2. Halter neck

The dress – This style is great especially when the back is left revealed – a winner for those girls who don’t like to flash too much cleavage.

The bra – Again the Wonderbra multi plunge comes up trumps and with 3 colour-ways you won’t be disappointed!

3. Strapless

The dress – This Cleavage popping style has the Hollywood glam factor and is always popular on the red carpet – no wonder!

The bra – If you are small busted like me then this highly praised strapless number by Wonderbra is the one for you-it’s guaranteed to create a cleavage that you could rest a plate on and stay in place too! (Ok I may be fabricating the plate part but honestly once you put this on you will have two new best friends!)

Larger busted ladies will love this strapless bra by Elomi – this vintage looking boned bra offers amazing support for larger chests and although reviewers admit it may not be the most attractive of bras , once it’s on it offers fantastic support and is available up to size 46FF!

4. Body Con

The dress – Figure hugging to the max, this dress holds no prisoners but when worn correctly it’s got traffic stopping appeal.

The bra – Keep lines as smooth as possible and invest in a well fitting style as you won’t do yourself no favours by wearing the wrong size! This bra by Freya is brilliant as keeps those puppies in the right place and doesn’t have too much detail that will show under your dress.
