Lace-up tops are causing a lot of women to feel the need to go bare. While A-cup women may be able to go braless, the rest of us could use a little extra support. If you’re unsure if a plunging neckline dress is right for you,
Here are a few tried-and-true lingerie hacks that will help you make an informed decision.
1) Introducing boob tapes!
Boob tapes are nothing new, but Kim Kardashian’s revelation that she uses tapes to achieve her enviable cleavage caused a media frenzy last year. There isn’t a particular brand because Kim has experimented with duct tape, masking tape, and gaffer tape before settling on the latter. Tape ’em up and see what works best for you!
Tip: Remove any lotions or oils from your skin prior to taping.
2) Silicone bras aren’t dangerous!
No one gets hurt by wearing a bra
That’s because those PVC-strapped balconettes you’d been wearing for so long were starting to look awful! You didn’t really think your plastic straps would slip under the radar if your highlighter looked flawless under the right lighting conditions, did you? It’s better late than never, in any case! A silicone bra might be a good option for you.
Tip: Stick-on bras are what they’re known as colloquially, so don’t be alarmed.
3) Use inner support to your advantage
Asking your tailor to stitch bra cups into the inner lining (astar) of your choli is a lingerie hack that has been passed down through generations, so don’t think you’re the first to have the guts to go braless. Even the elderly participated, albeit with less bravado. Whatever method you choose, it’s a safe and effective way to improve the fit of your garment.
Tip: In order to avoid looking unflattering, get your bra cups custom-molded. Otherwise, you’ll be left with an unflattering appearance!
4) Have you ever tried a pasty?
Pasties can be your new best friend when you’re going braless, just like Christina Aguilera in Burlesque or Dita von Teese, the real Queen of Burlesque. If you get used to how liberating these can be, you won’t be able to stop. From now on, it’d be all about the slinky dresses and tank tops, so be on the lookout!
Tip: When it comes to nude photos, keep it simple. The jazzier versions of the same are tacky at best.
5) The Game of Fabrics, (GoF)
It is obvious that you should avoid using sheers. As an alternative, choose thicker fabrics like raw silk and denim, and then layer a structured top layer on top. You get an extra point for being a #bosslady! Plunging necklines aren’t meant to be intimidating; you just have to figure out how to make them flattering on your body type. It’s all about the fabrics this time, so have at it!
