Open Bust Bras: How To Rock A Matchy Matchy Look

Sexy Girl Tip

Open lingerie in smooth and sensational silk or satin is a great choice that's as sensuous as it is sophisticated.

We get it. Petites who are conscious of their height and want to appear taller often face a struggle when it comes to see through lingerie.

Is there a trick to appearing taller? Yes, there is!

An open bra with matching panties in the same color scheme carries the eye upward and creates the illusion of length and height.

Looking for a little glamor? Have fun and mix it up with matching sheer bras and panties that come with special extras like a matching garter belt or a bustier style open bra in the same beautiful colors.

What to avoid?

Keep in mind that creating a long line is a key to looking taller. Contrasting colors break up the long line of the silhouette and can make someone appear shorter than they really are.

Sheer bras in sexy colors like black are a peekaboo favorite!

Pair Open Bust Bras With The Right Panties

When shopping for sexy sheer lingerie, the goal for most women is to really rock their shape and look amazing.

And, while a cupless bra is always front and centre - seriously, who can resist this sexy favorite - a super simple secret lies in the southern region - the panties that you pair with your bra.

Panties have the power to change your entire look depending on the fabric they're made of and how they’re designed.

  • Are they silk or satin? Lace or mesh?
  • Are they part of a matching open bra and panty set?

An open bra and panty set is irresistible in fun and fantastic colors like red!
  • Sexy undies that are cut straight across the body like boyshorts tend to make the legs look shorter and stockier
  • Styles like bikini panties tend to have high cut legs and make your limbs look like they go on forever (think supermodel long)
  • Skimpier styles like g string panties are also a great choice as they’re designed to visually add length
  • Open lingerie sets with matching panties that have wider sides will tend to shorten your frame and make you look shorter
Open lingerie is designed to accentuate in all the right places...oh la la!

Find The Perfect Open Bra Fit

Even though an open bust bra does not have a traditional covered bra cup it’s still essential to find a style that looks great, fits perfectly and comfortably (because, seriously who can have fun when they're not feeling yummy) in all of the other important areas.

What should you look for? Here are a few easy tips -

  • Like with regular bras, the bra band shouldn’t be too loose or your bra will start to shift around and look off-center - a big no-no. Or, worse yet, if the band is really too big your breasts can pop out - which usually happens at the worst possible moment

Did You Know?

The opposite is also true. A bra band that’s too tight will be really uncomfortable and create unflattering bumps and bulges across the back

  • The same rule applies to the straps – if they’re too loose the bra will sag, and if straps are too snug  they'll dig into the shoulders, making it a very uncomfortable situation

Overall, open bras should feel comfy and cozy so that they aren't pinching or making you feel like you need to constantly fuss and adjust them.

Open bras that look and feel fantastic are a sexy inspiration!

Look For Sweet Petite Sheer Lingerie Details

Petites with small frames are simply stunning in delicate, flimsy open bras with sexy little essentials like spaghetti straps, thin bands, lightweight lace, or tiny bows.

Exaggerated details such as thick or bulky straps, wide bra bands, or any trims that are too large or overpowering will overwhelm a small frame and take the focus away from the bust.

Also, keep in mind that an open cup bra that looks too heavy will make a petite woman look shorter and wider instead of long, lean, and utterly sexy - the way this stunning style is meant to look.
