I can be pretty stubborn when it comes to clothing, and the number one area I refuse to budge on has more to do with comfort than anything else. More specifically, it’s about the bras I choose to wear. As someone who wears a size 34F, the topic is top of mind—at least in my experience—because it’s the area of my body I’ve found most proportionally challenging to dress. All this to say going-out tops and I have not always gotten along.
I love a pretty, flirty top as much as the next lady who’s got plans on a Friday night. But as someone who’s not only uncomfortable going sans bra but also prefers wearing one that’s supportive at all times (no strapless bras for me, thanks), the options for dressed-up yet non-flimsy, non–floss width straps can seem scarce. Which is why I rounded up going-out tops you can wear a supportive bra under. Keep scrolling to shop all the pretty, special plans–ready styles, regardless of your bra size.
