Lingerie is one of our most valuable allies in matters of seduction. It is the backbone of an essential accessory that’s designed to provide support and comfort as well as confidence and sensuality: we’re talking specifically about the bra.

The leading luxury lingerie brands have joined forces to offer a selection of pieces that will enhance your natural curves, with styles that meet the latest trends and adapt to your figure.

Read on to find out everything you need to know about strapless bras; their benefits and what to look for when choosing yours. You can also browse our most beautiful designs on Dessus Dessous.

Choosing a bra according to your body type

Not all bras are made to fit all breast sizes, which is why understanding your body type and the undergarments that bring out your physical attributes is key in lingerie.

If you have a small bust, you won’t need much support and can get away with wearing all kinds of designs, from bandeau to push-up, with or without straps, without any restriction.

If your bust is on the medium side, half-cup and push-up bras will enhance your curves. Although, depending on your tastes and preferences, you can just as easily go for the triangle bra or the bralette; two fits that are dedicated to comfort without adding volume.

Lastly, if your bust is of the ample variety, you can opt for a more discreet selection of full cup and minimizing bras, or go for more show-stopping styles that highlight your silhouette; a half-cup or a push-up bra, for instance.

For best results, we recommend that you pay particular attention to size, which can vary over the years and according to brands. Do not hesitate to contact customer service for more information before purchasing, for sizes, for example.

A bra that is too small will tend to poke into your chest and shoulders, resulting in a bulging, unsightly look, whereas a bra that is too large won’t add more lift or volume.

Benefits of the strapless and removable straps bra


The removable straps bra is definitely more versatile, making it easier to adapt to your preferences and your wardrobe.

You can choose to wear it with straps when you want to add a little more lift to your breasts or without, so you can look and feel great in that lovely strapless dress.

Different types of removable strap bras

Two very popular styles in the strapless and removable category are the push-up and the bandeau.

The bandeau bra

The bandeau bra is usually sold as a detachable set. It does not provide much support and is therefore generally recommended for small to medium breasts. It has a wide band in the back and a low neckline in the front. Its main feature is that it leaves your shoulders bare, without straps, giving you the option to wear a strapless top.

The push-up bra

The main feature of the push-up style is that it provides volume and shape to the bust. It is made of underwires, pads and straps.

A removable version is also available, which adapts to the outfit of your choice. This style will give you a little less volume.

Undergarments that are invisible underneath clothes

When you talk about wearing a strapless bra, the idea is to hide the straps and conceal the fact that you’re wearing a bra.

As a result, many of the strapless or removable bras are made with very few seams, with microfiber fabric for the cups and rather classic and subtle colours (white, black, nude) so as not to attract attention and to enable the wearer to wear any garment.

Can I wear a strapless bra or one that has removable straps?

The straps help to maintain and support your breasts to create a shapely, fuller and lifted appearance.

If you remove the straps, you will lose support. This is why strapless bras are not recommended for large breasts.

However there are also bandeau styles for larger breasts, which require the support of straps.
