Shelf bras are comfortable and natural lingerie items. Usually worn for playing sports or lounging around the house, they can still be sexy. There are indeed very glamorous and intricate shelf bras (shape of the neckline, material, shape of the back, etc.) which have nothing to envy of other bra types. It is common to find these sexy shelf bras labelled as bralettes.

Finding a bra when you have a small chest

A shelf bra is a piece of lingerie for women that is perfectly suited to small breasts. The classic styles indeed offer little support and come without underwires. It is very simple to find THE style among the many designs created by lingerie brands. We recommend that you browse the shelf bra category, but also the categories of bralettes, triangle bras, and wireless pieces to find a sexy shelf bra that suits your taste. Each person has their own definition of sexy lingerie.

Let’s open this selection with a very sexy shelf bra piece, Fuji by Chantal Thomass. Made from sheer and detailed lace, this shelf bra has many sexy details. Among them, the open center panel which emphasizes the cleavage. It is the ideal women’s lingerie item for a seductive evening. For an even more glamorous effect, pair this shelf bra with one of the many underwear bottoms from the same collection. Why not a thong or garter belt in sheer black lace?

A wireless triangle bra is an ideal undergarment for women with small breasts. It offers sufficient support and a nice neckline. Danse des Sens by Aubade is a very elaborate lace triangle bra. All-over sheer, it reveals the chest with subtlety. Our advice? Wear it with a high-waist panty from the same collection for a retro and sexy pin-up look. 

A sexy and ultra-comfortable shelf bra

It is totally possible to feel comfortable in your shelf bra while also feeling sexy. The Mood Black by Mey triangle bra is living proof. Featuring a deep neckline, it benefits from Coolmax technology which ensures comfort and coolness. This innovative textile easily wicks moisture outwards and promotes healthy thermoregulation of the body. It is therefore the ideal sexy shelf bra to visit the gym or a yoga class… all while looking irresistible.

Do you like romantic and sophisticated lingerie for women? Confiance Aurore by Simone Pérèle will make you fall head-over-heels. This pretty powder pink shelf bra is athletic, but very feminine. It has an open racerback detail for a chic sporty effect. Note that this undergarment has a very plunging neckline. We recommend that you wear it under a tank top or a tee at the gym, or else you would risk turning all heads!

Finding a sexy shelf bra when you have a large bust

Finding a shelf bra for a large bust is more complex than finding the perfect piece when you have a small chest. Indeed, generous busts need to be well supported. We therefore recommend that you turn to a shelf bra equipped with underwires in order to avoid back pain.

Opt for a sexy underwired shelf bra

Its straps can be worn straight or crossed in the back for a more sensual effect. Do you want to feel even sexier? Opt for the matching panty to complete your chic and glamorous electric blue set.

The last shelf bra of our selection is different from the classic styles and is designed especially for women with large cup sizes. Indeed, it does not have underwires, like most bras, but wide straps and a wide band under the bust. These features lift the chest and prevent back pain. We like its carefully planned details, its lace look and its triangle shape. It is a versatile undergarment, just as perfect for a good workout as for a romantic evening. 

You are now familiar with many styles of sexy shelf bras. As you have seen, these lingerie pieces are suitable for all body types… if they are carefully chosen. Be sure to always choose a shelf bra based on your cup size and the intended use of your shelf bra (athletic activity, everyday wear, to wear on a specific occasion…). This will allow you to choose the ideal cut and material without making any mistakes. Which sexy shelf bra will you choose?
