What We Wear Under It All –

The Best Strapless Bra

If you’re like me and live in a cold climate and as the temperature starts to warm up and summer approaches, you get exited to put all the coats away and pull out your summer outfits! The bare shoulder and trend isn’t going away any time soon. Perhaps you’ve noticed all of the one shoulder tops or even oversized graphic tees and tops worn off of one shoulder or both. These looks are so cute and don’t we all have great shoulders so why not show them off?! The dilemma then becomes where do I find a great strapless bra that stays in place and doesn’t slid down or dig in or is ill fitting causing you to spill out over the top or sides! Can you relate? As a bigger chested gal I felt like I was always on the hunt each and every summer until I found what I consider the perfect strapless bra, that is until I found the Lilyette Tailored Strapless Minimizer Bra! It meets all of my criteria – comfort, stays put, flattering – plus it looks great on everyone I’ve recommended it to no matter their chest size!

Here are the specifics about this bra:

  • 81% Nylon, 19% Elastane
  • Sweetheart-neck minimizer bra featuring convertible/removable/adjustable straps. Tactel Nylon
  • Converts to halter, crisscross and demi
  • Minimizes bustline up to 1.5″ in this strapless bra
  • Detachable adjustable straps ; Wide band with invisible boning ; Silicone gripper at interior sides to prevent slipping
  • Customize the fit with back adjustable stretch straps ; Molded, lined minimizer underwire is free of padding and support panels

The Best Panties for Wearing Under White

These are actually the only panties I wear and I wear them daily under everything! If you’re specifically looking for what to wear under white pants or white shorts, these are my recommendation!

My personal favorites for wearing under anything is the Soma Vanishing Edge High Leg or Modern Brief. You can get them in many color and pattern options. The beige or skin colored panties are the best under white. These panties stay in place, don’t show and panty lines and are super comfy. Yes, I do like my bra and panties to match and I like them to match my outfits. Believe it or not, I do get asked this question often. I think black and nude/beige are the most commonly found in my drawers but I do enjoy pretty colors and patterns.

Bare Shoulders Top

Under my bare shoulder top, I’m wearing my Lilyette strapless bra! The fun color, pattern and comfort of this bare shoulder top make it easy to wear. I purchased it last summer when I was on my girl’s 60th birthday trip to Palm Springs. It can easily be worn with shorts…yes, you can wear shorts if you want to at any age! It would be cute with a little skirt. As you can see, I paired it with my side striped jeans and silver accessories/accents.

Bare Shoulder Romper

Under my bare shoulder romper, I’m wearing my Lilyette strapless bra. This bare shoulder romper was originally purchased to wear to an outdoor wedding celebration. The attire was casual. When it comes to rompers, I have an easy on easy off rule. With no shoulders to worry about, this romper fits the bill. It was perfect for being outdoors in the July heat.

Bare Shoulder Jumpsuit

Underneath my jumpsuit I’m wearing my strapless Lilyette bra! This bare shoulder jumpsuit was perfect for strolling around downtown Palm Springs last summer! It meets my easy on easy off criteria. I added the belt around the waist to give more definition. The bright tropical color was perfect for the summer! I purchased it at a local boutique but will link some bare shoulder jumpsuits that I think are cute!

Bare Shoulder Sweater and White Jeans

In Illinois, I feel as though we have more opportunities to wear sweaters than summer attire so I thought I’d share a bare sweater look along with my white jeans. Underneath is (you guessed it), my Lilyette strapless bra and my Soma Vanishing Line Tummy Control Panties!

What They Wear Under It All:

Stylish Friends From Around the World

Suzanne – Ask Suzanne Bell – “Having the “correct” undergarments on hand can make the difference between an article of clothing getting worn or not, especially in the summer months, when shoulders are bare, and pants, dresses & skirts are more revealing, more sheer, and less forgiving. Today I’m sharing my go-to convertible bra, along with a tank top friendly “no side boob” bra, no show panties, and my favorite high waist brief to wear with dresses and skirts from Target.”

Nicole – High Latitude Style – “Call me a prude if you want, but I have a medium size collection of old-school half-slips and slips. They are great to stay a bit warmer in winter, and avoid that cheap trendy summer dresses look cheap. Adding a half-slip or slip underneath gives them the look as having a lining when you are standing between the Sun and an on-viewer.”

Shelbee – Shelbee on the Edge – “Period panties were a strange concept to me at first. But now in perimenopause, I am finding them most beneficial. I am reviewing my first pairs on the blog today.”

Ada – Elegance and Mommyhood – “I have always loved lace tops and camisoles and this year more than before they are really trending. The lingerie style garments are so stylish right now, like the millennial pink cropped camisole I am wearing (you can find them at Express). I wore mine over the infamous lace Free People bralette (mine is a neutral soft grey color and it goes with everything). With warmer months coming up, wearing bralettes, lace camisoles or lace-trimmed camis is a great idea to layer underneath your Summer dresses, sundresses, or even under tank tops and jackets, cardigans or blazers when you are indoors with the heavy air conditioner blowing.”
