It may be hard to find the perfect size and fit, but I’ll totally admit that an amazing bra really can definitely provide the unbeatable support, and breathable comfort you deserve. However, in addition to just being a classic staple inside every woman’s wardrobe, recently multitasking bras are becoming all the rage.
It's safe to say that bras are a part of the majority of women's outfits, but it's not often we give them much thought in the styling department. Before you go and buy another version of the same bra style you committed to when you were 15, know that new and modern designs allow you to show off your own personal style, while still keeping your girls in place.
No matter your style preference, a good multitasking bra can function in a variety of ways. Whether you decide to style it as a trendy crop top, or use it as a well fitted bikini top at the beach, versatile pieces like these can perk up any outfit ensemble in no time. Bras will no longer stand for being hidden under shirts.
Ready to find a great bra that goes above and beyond comfort and support? Here are six multi-functioning, trendy bras you can wear in myriad ways.
1. Bikini Top
With such an awesome print (that's the Carina nebula, FYI) you won't want to hide this bra under a shirt. It's perfect for peeking out from underneath a muscle tee or blazer, plus has convenient convertible straps so you can wear it with strapless numbers as well.

Crop tops aren’t going out of style anytime soon, so if you want a great fitting substitute, opt for wearing a cool sports bra (like this one!) with maxi skirts or high-waisted joggers for a sexy and chic look.
3. High Tech Fitness Bra
More than just your average sports bra, this high tech piece allows you to look good and monitor your heart rate while exercising. Also compatible with your iPod Touch or smart watch, this handy tool provides helpful feedback during your workouts.

For some, sleeping in a bra might be totally out of the question. But for women with conditions that cause tenderness (like with fibrocystic breasts) that nighttime support can help relieve the pain in your lumpy bits. This one is made to be worn while you sleep, but I think it's sexy enough to rock during the day as well.
5. Hoodie Alternative
Looking to update those sportswear staples? Taking gym style to another level, this hooded bra can also work for street style looks you were planning on rocking. Or if you simply want to dress up your tanks, feel free to wear this piece over camis and tees for a sporty-cool vibe.
