Find the Right Underpinnings.
A strapless bra is a no-brainer—and if you’re on the bustier side, it’s also a necessity—but
if you can, opt for reusable cover-ups instead. That way you won’t have to worry
about constantly readjusting both your strapless bra and your strapless
neckline. (We love that Bristols Six makes them in two different sizes and a range
of skin tones).

Try Cut-Outs Instead.
Not sure if going completely cold-shouldered is for you? Test the waters a top that
has cut-outs rather than an entirely off-the-shoulder neckline. It’s an option that
is equally as on-point, will allow you to wear your favorite bra, and will stay easily
in place—no tugging involved. That’s a win-win-win.

Dare to Bare.
If you’re a sartorial risk-taker, try a twist on the trend that combines convenience
and style: Pick a bra pretty, embellished straps in a color that contrasts or complements
your top, and let them act as an accessory to your ensemble.
