7 Bras for Low-Cut Dresses

Bras for low-cut dresses

Wearing low-cut dresses can have its own challenges. You need to figure out how to avoid a wardrobe malfunction and prevent your bra from showing. While you could opt for a tank top or camisole, at Leonisa, we offer many options that provide perfect support and coverage. Whether you are looking for a barely-there low-cut option or one with full-body support, we’ve got you covered.

While providing high-quality undergarments, we also strive toward sustainable practices, such as sourcing products from Colombia under fair labor practices. You can look good, feel good and know you’re doing good for others.

1. Push-Up Bra

Our push-up bras are a great way to boost your profile, providing a fuller effect with anything you wear. A push-up bra typically has a narrow center gore. Some have wider cups or more coverage than others. Plunging push-up bras are a great option for a low-cut dress.

When you’re wearing a low-cut dress and want to wear this bra style, look for a shorter center gore and cups that aren’t so close to your sternum. This provides you with the comfortable, well-fitting coverage you desire while still making the most of what you have.

For instance, our 3D Bra: Triple Push-Up Plunge Bra offers a deep V plunge while maximizing your cleavage. It can give the appearance of 150% extra volume. It features an anti-slip grip lining to keep everything in place. It offers convertible straps, so you can even wear it straplessly.

Or you could opt for our Invisible High Push-Up Petite Bra with Memory Foam for a smooth, comfortable fit. It has convertible straps and is designed for women with a more petite frame. The contouring triangle cups are made of memory foam and offer great coverage.

2. Bralette

Whether you’re looking for a sheer lace bralette or an opaque version, we have you covered. Bralettes usually have little or no lining and don’t have an underwire, side support or padding. They can be fantastic to wear under a low-cut dress when you don’t need much lift or support. A bralette is often designed to be visible under your clothing.

Our bralettes have varying neckline styles. Some have a slight scoop neck, while others, like our Sheer Lace Bustier Bralette with Underwire, have a deep V-neck ideal for low-cut dresses.

If you love the fit of your low-cut dress but need more modesty, we offer bralettes with a high neckline or a mesh front. These can act like a modesty panel, allowing you to wear your favorite dress in a more conservative setting. Our High-Neck Unlined Lace Crop Top Wireless Bralette is made with sheer SmartLace® for a beautiful luxe look. It features a wireless elastic band for comfort. You can choose our Multiwear Lace Pocketed Bralette for a little more coverage. The pocketed cups are designed to add padding or prostheses. It has wide, fixed straps, and the cups are connected with lovely tulle mesh.

3. Plunging Bodysuit

A plunging bodysuit can be an incredible option under a low-cut dress. Granted, they technically aren’t bras in the traditional sense, but our bodysuits have a built-in bra-like or bralette. Some even offer back support.

A shaper bodysuit can smooth out your curves, lifting and shaping while helping your clothes fit more comfortably. You’ll find options with thigh compression like our Sheer Stripe Detail Sculpting Mid-Thigh Bodysuit Shaper. For body shaping, you might like our Sheer Stripe Detail Sculpting Bodysuit or Smoothing Shaper Bodysuit with Underwire Cups. Most of our bodysuits feature a plunging neckline, making them perfect for your favorite low-cut dress.

4. Strapless Bra

Strapless bras typically have a wide back band to keep you supported while baring your shoulders. Our strapless bras have a few different levels of plunge in wired and wireless designs. The traditional strapless bras often cut almost straight across the top. However, we also offer plunging versions with a low center gore. If you are looking for a strapless bra to wear under a low-cut dress, check out our strapless push-up bra or our Wow bra.

The Wow bra features an underwire balconette push-up cup. It comes with optional straps to wear in four different ways. Our Antigravity Wireless Strapless Bra is another great option. Its high-tech design offers smooth shaping and a no-slip grip.

5. Plunge Bras

Many of our different types of bras for women have deep plunge options. Some have noticeable underwire support, while others have hidden or no underwire. You can find styles that use padding, molding or compression to provide support.

Convertible deep plunge bras offer the most flexibility. How many and which bra styles it converts to depends on the bra itself, as it can vary from one to the next, but some options typically include halter style, strapless and crisscross back. The perk of this type of bra is that it gives you the ability to wear it with low-cut dresses, but you can also customize it to wear with garments in varying styles.

Our demi-cup collection has several options, including the Front Cutout Demi-Cup Double Push-Up Bra. This bra offers both front and back plunges with convertible straps for the most daring styles.

6. Adhesive Deep Plunge Bra

Even more versatile than the two aforementioned is the adhesive deep plunge bra. However, this option requires more forethought, careful planning and maintenance. The front of the adhesive deep plunge bra typically looks exactly like the standard deep plunge bra, but it doesn’t have straps or a back. As the name indicates, it’s held in place with strategically placed adhesive, allowing you to wear a dress that’s low cut in the front and has a low back. With proper care, these bras are typically reusable

A few catches come with wearing an adhesive deep plunge bra. For instance, your skin needs to be clean and dry and free of add-ons like powder, lotion, gel or oil. Sweat, rain and any other type of water or moisture can also loosen the adhesive while you’re wearing it, so wearing it outside in hot and humid conditions isn’t ideal. The bra needs to be washed according to the included instructions to ensure the preservation of the adhesive.

7. Bustier

Bustiers are gorgeous undergarments that can be fabulous under low-cut dresses. This type of garment extends further down than typical bras and usually has added boning for support. Some extend a minimal amount, like our Sheer Lace Bustier Bralette with Underwire. This beautiful, sheer bustier has lace cups and soft side boning.

Our Strapless Contouring Bustier Bra has flexible boning in front and on the sides, providing extra structure. For a more flexible fit, you can choose our Luxe Lace Underwire Smoothing Bustier, which has triangle cups and side boning.
