We’ve all heard of an LBD, but what about an LBB? That’s a Little Black Bra – a number one essential of any lingerie drawer! It’s something that can be worn for any occasion, dressed up or dressed down, and has your back when you need it the most. We’ve rounded up five of the must-have LBBs, take a look below and make sure you’ve got at least one of these babies in your bra-drobe…
The Padded Balconette Bra
We love a bra that features a light foam lining like the Flirtelle Emma padded balconette bra, and this makes it a perfect LBB! Without adding any extra volume to your bust, the light padding helps to lift and shape your breasts and also adds an extra layer between your bust and your clothes – great for concealing nipples if that’s something you’re conscious of. Smooth microfibre fabric is sleek and comfortable, while pretty lace detailing at the cradle keeps it feminine and pretty. This is our number one and available in 32-40 FF-K. Not quite in that size range? Don’t worry – the Curvy Kate Daily Dream is a great alternative and is available in 28-44 bands from a D cup!
The Side Support Bra
Are your boobs a little side heavy? Looking for some forward projection? Try the Pour Moi Electra side support bra. This gorgeous LBB is non-padded but has opaque bottom cups that lift and support the breast from below, giving a great shape. The top cup has a pretty geometric stretch mesh that moulds to your shape, while the clever side section directs your breast tissue forwards, meaning it works great under all kinds of outfits. Electra is available in 32-40 D-J and 42 D-G.
The Sheer Plunge Bra
With its sports-luxe styling, the Curvy Kate Lifestyle plunge bra is sleek, stylish and sexy. The lightweight mesh is breathable and comfortable, so much so that you’ll barely even feel it when it’s on! It gives your cleavage a subtle boost by pushing your breasts in and up, without the overbearing effect of a push-up bra. Great for under a cheeky low neckline! Lifestyle is available in band sizes 30-40 and cups D-J.
The Sexy Strappy Bra
Sometimes you just want to show off your bra and flaunt what your mama gave you – that’s where the Scantilly by Curvy Kate Surrender bra comes in! This is a seriously stunning LBB, with sheer mesh cups that showcase rose gold embroidery, while the overbust straps look amazing peeking out over the top of your dress. We think every girl needs an underwear-as-outerwear option in their wardrobe, and this is our top pick! This beauty is available in 30-40 DD-HH.
The T-Shirt Bra
For when you just need something that gives great shape and can’t be seen under your clothes, you need a t-shirt bra. The Freya Deco moulded plunge bra is our fave, this LBB is cleverly crafted with completely seam-free cups so you’ll have the sleekest of silhouettes while the plunge shape gives you amazing cleavage. Wide straps make it comfortable and easy to wear too, so it’s a win-win! Deco is available at Brastop in 30-38 bands and D-G cup sizes. For 28 bands and up to a J cup, there’s the Curvy Kate Smoothie Soul too.
