12 Pretty Bras You'll Want To Show Off On Purpose

There are certain outfits that you wear that just look better with a bit of lace sticking out. You know which ones I'm talking about. That glimpse of your bra just amps up the sexiness, and there are so many pretty bras to show off on purpose. Whether they're lacy and meant to be shown off in the front and sides, or they have really cool backs that peek out from under your top, or even if it's something subtle super subtle like a hint of an outline, a lovely dose of lingerie just adds something special to your look.

For instance, I have this shirt that I wear that features a large triangle panel, so I always pair it with this awesome racerback bra that has a bunch of cutouts in it. Every time I wear it, someone asks me if they came together. And a friend of mine has this super delicate bralette that has a caged front, which she wears with a tank top and only the caged part sticks out and it just looks so cool.

If you're interested in trying out this trend, you can totally find a bra that will look great peeking out from under your top or dress. They are so pretty and lacy these days that you'll undoubtedly find yourself wanting to show your bra off whenever you're going out for the night — or even during the daytime, if you're extra daring.
