Types of Bridal Bras

What’s the most exciting day for a girl that she can’t wait for? Her wedding day! Every girl enthusiastically awaits her wedding day’s shopping, from the dazzling lehenga to that glittery footwear. She makes sure that everything is well-planned and taken care of. But here’s what most brides don’t even consider: their lingerie. While she feels a matching lace set of lingerie will be sufficient for her big day but little does she know that the world of bridal bras offers innumerable styles, from bralette, balconette, plunge, push-up, strapless and multi-way, etc, each designed to provide variety from your pre-wedding rituals till your honeymoon.

We’ve got something for every stage, whether it’s your haldi, mehndi, pheras, reception, sangeet, cocktail parties, or bachelorette parties. So without any further ado, let’s get into it straightaway.

Lacy Bralette

This versatile piece is a must-have for your phera, bachelorette, and cocktail bash. It phenomenally merges with heavily embroidered lehengas, sheers tops and flirty one-pieces. Its versatile trait lets you style it solo or layer discreetly for added support. This fashion statement piece has many designs from sexy lace to strappy ones to underwired padded. For summer brides, wearing a bra & a blouse will be exhausting, so going for bralettes will be an excellent decision.


balconette bra

Planning to style a low-cut dress? Then balconette bra should be the one to pair it with.  The coverage this bra provides is slightly more than a half cup which just covers an inch over the nipple line. Hence it flawlessly supports us when we style a boatneck or square neckline. But to make the most use of it, pair it with your wedding lengha. Why? The heaviness of lengha and the additional weight of the blouse makes it more uncomfortable for the bride. Its stylish lookbook misleads everyone that it’s a blouse and not a bra. Comes in tons of balconette styles and fabrics. If you wanna explore, tap here.

Fun Fact:

Balconette is derived from the word balcony because the bra’s neckline is cut horizontally across the breasts resembling a balcony.

Be the fashion queen and own the night at your cocktail party by donning the hottest bra among all bra types. Plunge bras create an illusion of bigger busts as they push the breasts together. The best part is that its versatile nature lets you style it just beyond the cocktail attire. Goes well with those sassy, gorgeous plunging neckline outfits. If you’ve got a plunging choli or a reception gown, it will blend well with them too. Lastly comes in varied styles for all body types.

Push-up Bra

You push limits to make sure everything is well planned on your big day, isn’t it? But, you know, bridal cholis and blouses are all embroidered and can flatten your bust instead of giving you that royal bridal look. That’s why you must own a push-up to enhance your look as it lifts your breasts, making them look fuller, and defined. Just a little push in the required direction can really enhance your already killer look! So get your hands on push-up bras that come in levels 1, 2 and 3 with each level giving you a gentle lift to the breasts as per your body’s need.

Strapless Bra

This style comes in numerous types ranging from padded, push-up, underwired, silicon etc and comes in supportive cups, and secure back bands, thus eliminating the worry of strap slippage. Pair this strapless bra for flawless support and a smooth, uninterrupted look for your cocktail parties, bachelorette, reception and honeymoon.

Multiway bra

No need to ditch your fav piece just because you don’t have a particular type of bra that goes well with it. Go for a detachable multiway bra.
