When dressing up for a special event, bustiers are a tried and true solution underneath strapless styles. While many strapless bras are notorious for sliding down and lacking in support, bustiers stay in place and provide a bust lift that will stay in place for hours. These are ideal for weddings as well as proms, galas and other formal events.
Whether it’s because they need strapless support for a formal affair or just want something special to show off on a special night, many women find themselves turning to the the classic style and function of a bustier bra. Taking many forms, you may see this garment executed as a bridal bustier, strapless bustier or, more casually, a bustier top. The bustier is one of the most essential and ultimately elegant women’s foundational garments. Extending from the bosom to the hip, this garment has many features that are similar to a corset, such as flexible boning, but typically no busk or lacing, making them easier to wear. A bustier’s job is to offer support rather than compression. Many bustiers feature detachable garters and feminine detailing such as lace. We carry a wide variety of bustiers, servicing the needs of bridal and formal wearers, as well as women who desire these garments simply as a lingerie piece.
