An essential lingerie accessory, the flesh-toned bra has its well-deserved place in the feminine wardrobe. This invisible undergarment that blends into the skin remains discreet even under light and sheer outfits.
What is a “flesh-toned bra”?
Invisible lingerie is sometimes summarized under the term nude lingerie. The color usually referred to as nude, however, is often a shade between ivory and caramel that only matches the skin of some women. To offer an option for every skin tone, the best women’s lingerie brands offer elegant and detailed undergarments in a broad palette of colors. These “flesh-toned” bras are available in shades ranging from off-white to black, including powder pink, beige, light brown, brown and chocolate. Tanned skin tones can opt for a café au lait bra, dark skin for cinnamon tones, while fair-skinned women will appreciate the trendy pastel dusty rose.
Why choose a flesh-toned bra?
There is certainly no shortage of opportunities to wear an invisible bra. For a cocktail party, the lingerie will blend in under a sophisticated, elegant outfit like a long cocktail dress or under light-colored flowing garments. Under a white shirt, for example, it is better to opt for a flesh-toned bra because contrary to common belief the white bra will be even more visible. In the warm months, when we are eager to wear light clothing, fluid tops, and simple blouses, summer lingerie is an absolute must-have. Discreet and comfortable, this type of bra provides optimal support in all discretion. Also, to leave the shoulders bare under a strapless dress for example, it’s best to opt for a bandeau bra with removable straps in a flesh tone.
Invisible lingerie includes bras with foam cups, seamless, that go unnoticed under a tight dress or a sheer shirt. But beyond the design, the choice of colors to achieve a second skin effect is very important. The best bras to wear under a transparent top are available in various styles, from the simple undergarment with smooth cups to openwork lace.
Finding the ideal bra according to your complexion
Flesh-toned bras are available in all styles and to suit all body types. Women with small busts can turn to an underwire-free bra, like the very trendy triangle bra. To define a plunging and sensual neckline, a push-up bra is ideal for raising the chest and giving an impression of added volume without padding. More supportive styles like the padded bra, the balconette or the demi-cup will appeal to women with generous chests who require excellent support. These flesh-toned bras are available from cup A to plus-sizes to suit every woman’s silhouette.
In addition, flesh tones are also available in specialty styles. Thus, every woman can find a sports bra or an invisible bra. It would be wrong to think that flesh-toned lingerie rhymes with monotony. Fans of beautiful lingerie will enjoy discovering contemporary graphics, elegant guipures, lovely floral patterns or chic lace inlays. Corsetry houses offer the most luxurious materials, from refined tulle to the softest silks, without forgetting inlaid satin details.
Where to buy a plus-size flesh-toned bra?

For voluptuous beauties, it is recommended to turn to an underwire bra. Shaping styles like the demi-cup bra draw a nice rounded curve and a sensual center gore.
To complete a lingerie set, a flesh-toned bra pairs perfectly with invisible underwear, from trendy high-waisted panties to shorties, thongs or Brazilian briefs.
