Should strapless be scary?
posted by Colleen Shirazi 2010-03-14 at 7:32 PM (Pacific)

strapless bra

I'm...still working on the basics. It's just that the basics, for women, tend to be complicated.

Take your strapless bra. If you're built small, it may have never been a big deal. You get a bra with the silicone squiggles inside, and call it a day.

If support is a greater issue, there is nothing more intimidating than straplessness. You're thinking, if I bend over, is this thing going to pop? Or will it gradually slide down into a state of non-existence?

Yet, logic dictates that a good strapless should work as well as a regular bra. The dynamics are a bit different: you'd need a tighter band, along with the silicone squiggles. The band should not be too narrow. The one I'm contemplating (above) has two rows of hooks; three would be ideal, probably, but I'll settle for two if the rest of it works as well as they say.

The cup size has to be big enough...I read somewhere to go down one band size and up one cup size. Which actually should not be necessary, as the strapless manufacturer should adjust the sizes accordingly...I'm just saying.

This model features removable straps, so you can also do wide-set, racerback, or halter straps.
