You probably like the way a bra makes you look in a sundress, but you may not be so stoked about actually seeing the undergarment. Unfortunately, some sundresses make seeing a bra seriously easy, which makes finding one that works difficult. But you don't have to nix those cute dresses or walk around unsupported. A variety of bras are available to keep your girls supported, covered and looking good.


A strapless bra gives your girls some lift, but it doesn't allow unsightly straps to make an appearance. This type of bra is perfect for sundresses that are sans straps. They also work well on dresses that have thin straps that won't hide your bra straps. Make sure you find a strapless bra that fits you well, as you don't want to constantly have to pull it up. Go with a pushup strapless if you really want some va-va-voom.


If you've got a sexy, backless sundress, stick-on cups are a good option. They cover your girls, which prevents any embarrassing moments from occurring. Additionally, they keep them lifted without using straps or bands, which means you won't see them peeking out and ruining the back of your chic dress.

T-Shirt Bra

Slip on a T-shirt bra if you're rocking a form-fitting cotton number. This soft, seamless bra prevents embarrassing bra lines from showing and ruining your flawless appearance. Also, go with a bra that won't show through your dress. If your dress is white, go with a bra that is flesh-toned to prevent any color from poking out through your dress.

T-Back Bra

Go with a T-back bra if you're donning a tank top-style dress with thick straps. This type of bra gives you the support and coverage you need, without being seen and prevent you from having to wear a strapless. They typically are cut low on the sides, as well, to keep them from showing out under your arm holes, which looks sloppy and less than sexy.
