One of my biggest pet peeves is exposed underwear. In my book, visible straps are always a no-no. Call me old fashioned, but there’s just nothing tackier than a cute outfit gone wrong due to tastelessly publicized undergarments. I’ll let a subtle pop of lavender lace underneath a loose tank slide, but I can’t help but judge when I can clearly see neon pink polka dot bra straps.
And if there’s one place peek-a-boo undergarments should never be allowed it’s fancy occasions, such as weddings, New Year’s parties, and prom. And here’s the best part: It’s completely possible to avoid this mishap. If Rihanna can wear an extreme low-cut, backless gown and not have an ounce of a bra slip, so can you.
In fact, I’ve come up with a list of the best bras for prom — the ones that work with practically any prom dress. Plus, with spring in full swing and all, you’ll probably want to show a little skin even after prom. And these bra options will help you go a little more bare without showing all the goods.
Whether your dress is a strapless cutout or a one-shoulder maxi, here are the best bras for prom. Bonus: Each pick comes with an accompanied dress option that works perfectly with the specific bra.
