Here, we take a closer look are the top tips for maximizing the sexy appeal of this favorite bra style, along with the dos and don’ts that every woman should know.

T Shirt Bra: The Dos

Buy a t shirt bra in every color - If you're a lingerie lover,  absolutely go with a rainbow of your desired colors,  one for every day of the week! 

But, if you just want to stick with the basics, no problem. Keep it simple with the three essential colors that go with almost everything:

  • nude (the most popular color. It's practical that goes with everything)
  • black (for darker clothes and a sexy evening look)
  • white (for lighter closet favorites and a fresh and fabulous girl next door look)

New to t shirt bras? - If you're not sure where to start, keep it simple until you decide what you want to do.

  • Nude / skin tone and black t shirt bras can be worn under just about anything and everything
  • Colorful bras are for days when you want to add some pizzazz, or when you want to show off your frisky and fabulous side

If you’re feeling a little adventurous, gradually add a few more colors to the mix, because there’s no such thing as having too much sexy lingerie.

Choose different styles - You need options when it comes to t-shirt bras if you want to make sure you’re covered no matter what outfit you want to wear.

Look for different styles and coverage that work under a variety of necklines.

Racer back or criss-cross straps work with tank tops, and convertible styles with removable straps are great for everything from strapless to halter to one shoulder tops.

There won’t be a outfit around that you won’t have a style for.

Sexy Girl Tip

For an extra smooth appearance, consider front closure t shirt bras. The centre front panel with easy to reach snap closure combined with seamless sides offers a much better fit than traditional styles with back closures.

Wear it with everything in your closet - Known as a t-shirt bra because of its smooth, seamless cups, it gives you a sleek look under even the most clingy tees and tops.

But don’t stop there. You can wear a sheer t-shirt bra with everything from tanks to sweaters, blouses to dresses.

This will be the piece you reach for time and time again because it works so well with any outfit in your closet.

T Shirt Bras: The Don'ts

Don't expect a lot of support - Sheer t-shirt bras are sexy because they’re see-through and seamless, but it's also important to keep in mind that the cups aren’t as structured and supportive as molded or traditional molded or padded bras.

These bras will work under any fabric but won’t always be your most supportive option.

If you’re craving a bit more support but still want the sexy look of sheer, search out styles that offer the best of both worlds, combining molded and / or padded cups with sheer panels and detailing.

Don't be afraid to make it sexy - While it's true that a t shirt bra is a wildly popular basic that will go with virtually everything in your closet, it doesn’t have to be blasé or boring.

How? It's all in the details - 

  • Look for styles with lace and see through inserts, and / or side and back panels with sensational detailing. Sheer fabrics with a sexy sexy shimmer are an instant stunner
  • Want to kick it up a notch? Pair your bra with a skimpy sheer thong, tanga or a cheeky pair of boy shorts in a complementary color to really knock it out of the park for a flirty look
convertible bras

Don't be surprised if it’s your favorite bra (and your partner’s too!) - Expect to put your t-shirt bras at the top of the stack, and keep them there.

It's easy to turn to this style on a daily basis because it’s so comfortable, easy and versatile to wear, and the sheer sexiness of it will make you feel as gorgeous as you look.

The confidence in wearing something that makes you feel fabulous will place this sexy bra style at the top of your favorites.
