convertible strapless bra - 3 Things To Love About Convertible Bras

Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the miracle that is convertible bras. With straps that can be detached and adjusted, this multi-functional style can be worn a myriad of ways. Since they can be transformed, they offer a variety of options. In other words, they are the jack of all trades of underthings.

In fact, we’ll go so far as to say that every woman should have a convertible bra in their collection. Since these bras can transform into a variety of different styles, they can be adjusted to fit literally any wardrobe, whether you have lots of strapless dresses or off-the-shoulder sweaters.

Still on the fence about whether to invest in one of these ultra-popular undergarments? Here are just a few things we love about convertible bras:

Convertible bras are ultra versatile

Indeed, convertible bras are about as versatile as they come. First of all, they can be fastened into a number of looks, from halter and criss-cross to one-shoulder. Not only that, but they also come in a wide range of styles. For example, there are convertible push-up brasconvertible contour bras, and both underwire convertible bras and wire-free convertible bras. In other words, there’s a convertible option for every woman, no matter her needs in regards to support, lift, and shaping.

But back to the versatility aspect. Buying a convertible bra is a smart move because it allows you to be more of a minimalist in terms of your bra collection. Since the convertible bra can function in so many ways, you may find you don’t need nearly as many bras as you did before. Of course, you will still need some other options that a convertible bra can’t replace, such as a sports braracerback bra, or longline bra, but still — this multi-tasking garment can provide a ton of options, making it a worthy investment.

Some convertible bras double as strapless bras

There are lots of ways to take advantage of the removable straps on a convertible bra. But don’t forget that in addition to the many different ways you can wear it, you can also choose to keep the straps off completely! This eliminates the need for a strapless bra in your collection because a convertible bra doubles as one.

Pro tip: If you’re full busted, you may want to look for certain features in your convertible bra so to ensure it stays up when you wear it as a strapless. For example, anti-slip silicone tape can help to keep the bra in place so that you don’t have to worry about constantly pulling it up.

Convertible bras can also be worn with straps

Perhaps one of the most underrated aspects of a convertible bra is that it can be used as a traditional bra. When you don’t need to transform the straps for a special top or dress, you can just wear it with the shoulder straps in their normal place. Wearing it this way provides plenty of support, which is a major plus for those with larger or heavier breasts.

By now, you may be wondering how you managed to get away with not having a convertible bra in your arsenal. Since they’re super versatile, they can accommodate different types of garments and sleeves, meaning your investment goes a long way. In fact, you may find that just one convertible bra won’t do — with so many different styles of cups and fabrics to choose from, there’s something to be said for having a few different convertible options at your fingertips.

In order to get the most out of your convertible bras, it’s important to be sure you’re wearing the correct size. If you haven’t gotten fitted by a professional in the last six months, head to your nearest department store or lingerie boutique to find out your band and cup sizes. That way, you can shop for convertible bras with peace of mind that they will fit you flawlessly, and you’ll undoubtedly get plenty of wear out of them for months to come.
