When wearing a halter dress, there’s likely one question you ask yourself, and that is: What bra do I wear? Of course, you can go braless, but for those looking for more support and security, options abound. These 10 bras for halter dresses stay hidden underneath your dress — or, they’re stylish enough to be seen.

What To Look For When Shopping For Bras To Wear With Halter Dresses

While the main goal when wearing halter dresses is usually to keep your bra concealed, some bras are worth showing off — like a dainty bralette made from lace that peeks out from under your straps and makes a bold fashion statement. However, if you prefer to keep your bra hidden from view, there are several options to choose from. The first is a bra mimics the silhouette of your dress while creating coveted support. These range from classic strapless bras to styles with plunging necklines or low-cut backs, many of which have convertible straps and supportive features like padded cups or underwire. On the other hand, you can opt for adhesive, backless bras, nipple covers, or even boob tape, all of which remain undetectable while adding some extra coverage.

Scroll on for a list of clever bras to wear with halter dresses, all of which are conveniently available on Amazon and backed by tons of glowing reviews.


This Popular Strapless Bra With Convertible Straps For Halter Styles

This popular balconette bra from Maidenform can be worn five different ways, including as a halter style or strapless to disappear under halter dresses. The underwire cups are designed for maximum lift and the lace detailing elevates the look. Fans report that when worn sans straps, the bra doesn’t slide around or require constant pulling up. As one shopper raved, “Best bra I ever owned.”

Rave review: “[...]It’s summer time, which means I’m wearing a lot of dresses and tank tops that are hard to wear with regular bras. I mainly got this to use strapless, but it also has two detachable straps that can be converted into 5 styles (strapless, regular, criss-cross, halter, and one shoulder). The straps go on and off easily, and don’t fall out while wearing them. Using the straps gives even more lift and support, but even without them my boobs are up high and in good position. Even though this is a push-up, I don’t have obnoxious cleavage to worry about.”
