1. Fit. A good strapless bra will not fall down! A good strapless bra is very fitted around the band, with the center gore lying flat against your breast bone and breasts not flowing over the top. This is a time to re-size if you haven’t in a while, which probably means going down a size in the band and up a size in the cup.

Silicone inside the cups of a strapless bra will give extra stay-up support. Skip the moisturizer and powder around the bra area for the silicone to work its magic!

2. Convertible is your friend. It can be worn as a strapless bra, but it can also be worn under those unusual dresses and tops. This bra works for halter style, one shoulder and cross-back.
3. Need A Boost? Strapless can also be a great time for pushup, which is perfect when you need a little something something under that bridesmaid dress. This bra bumps you up half a cup size in a very “natural” looking way.
4. Color. If you are going to show your bra (especially under those low cut tanks and tees with under arm-baring potential), go for a fun color. Make the bra your new fashion accessory for spring. Your nude bra is not one to show off, but your pink or aqua bra most definitely is!
5. C or Larger? If you’re full busted, you need a strapless bra from a brand that specializes in C cups and up. The construction should feature a wider band, three hooks in the back and extra support through the cups. My 32DD friend swears by this particular style.
6. Take The Plunge. If you notice you wear a lot of low-cut dresses and tops, go for a deep-v or plunge front strapless. This sexy strapless will give you great support while staying hidden underneath your outfit.
