    Hello,

    I am a little embarassed, but wanted to know what bra types to wear for the following blouses:

    a) Spaghetti strap blouses
    b) Blouses with a deep back or backless blouses
    c) Halterneck
    d) blouses that are in the "tube style", that is, no sleeves or straps or anything covering shoulders.
    e) Blouses that have a low square neck.

    The reason I am asking is I have to attend a wedding soon, and I got stiched some good blouses from a tailor seeing all the designs on this forum, but after I got the blouses home, not even one bra is looking good. Some places the straps are showing, some places the back of the bra is showing.

    I took them back to the tailor and he was laughing and saying that you dont need to wear any bra below, but I am not comfortable with that. Thanks.

    Thanks Pink.Rubies,

    Can you suggest some brands for these? I went to a mall here and it was very expensive to buy these bras. Also, they would not let me try it on, so I had no idea of the fitting.

    I'd suggest you but a convertible bra, lone bra worn 7 different ways, make sure you go to a shop where they will let you try it on.

    Thanks Rosy. I will definitely ask for a stitched bra next time.
    Thanks Pink.Rubies. I did not know about convertible bra. I will search for a shop that sells one.

    Hi Brinda

    These type of blouses are stitched with padding on the cups area like linings. So you dont have to wear a bra inside. In Dubai tailors stitch like that for special designs blouse as you mentioned..... broad back, haltar neck, strapless or spaghetti types.

    Whichever type of bra you wear they will be visible from somewhere......... so if the tailor has not done the padding, take back to him/her and got the padding done, then only you can wear the blouse.

    Nice to know that you have a wedding and got some nice designer blouses stitched. Can you post them here please? Would love to see them.

    Best Rgds
    Shanti

    Hi Shanti, I am not good at taking snaps, but will definitely try. Right now am searching for some sequins to embrioder the blouses as want to be able to mix and match. My relative in India was saying contrast blouses are the fashion now. Please give me some time.

    Hi,
    This may help
    a) Spaghetti strap blouses - Wear a clear-strap bra or preferably a strapless padded bra
    b) Blouses with a deep back or backless blouses - Bras with clear back straps or the regular ones that have deep and wide back. A single hook bra may be an economical option
    c) Halterneck - A strapless, clear strap bra would be good. For clear-strap ones wear them like halterneck using a single strap worn around your neck
    d) blouses that are in the "tube style", that is, no sleeves or straps or anything covering shoulders. - Definitely a strapless padded or inbuilt bra should be used. At home you may use a clear strap ones though
    e) Blouses that have a low square neck. - Low cut wide neck bras are available, but for these again prefer in-built/strapless bra

    Let me know if this hepls
