How to Pull Off Open-Back Clothing

Charleston, South Carolina
filed under:

The two silhouettes I gravitate toward the most when dressing are flowy feminine styles and fit and flare styles. In the summer, nothing beats a flowy, open-back dress or top. Flowy pieces are super breathable, which is absolutely necessary when it comes to dressing for a Charleston summer. To keep things extra cool, I always have my eye out for open-back pieces! After all, it’s fun to show a little skin from time to time!

Here comes the big question though… do I have the appropriate bra to wear under open-back pieces? I really used to toil over this until I embraced the idea of wearing a bra that I can show off under my tricky to style open-back outfits. I set out on a hunt to find the perfect bra to pull this off and bingo, I did with ThirdLove’s Front Closure Lace Racerback in Twilight. Y’all know that I’m a huge lover of ThirdLove bras. Also, I’m a huge supporter of their mission so it should come as no surprise that I started my search there and was immediately successful. Now, I’m having fun with my bra styling while still feeling confident and comfortable!

Racerback Lace Bra

I really fell head over heels in love with this racerback lace bra because it can be styled for endless summer occasions and with an endless amount of summer wardrobe pieces! Summer is a really social time of year in Charleston. So it’s not uncommon for me to be out and about all day and into the night without running home to change. So, I often opt for flowy outfits that keep me cool and comfortable.

When I wear an open-back flowy piece, I know it can transition from day to night easily! I think wearing an elegant, lace-detailed bra like my Front Closure Lace Racerback Bra in Twilight allows me to take my summer outfits up a notch in an incredibly easy way. Showing a pop of beautiful lace is sexy but still gives my outfits an elevated look. I’m always more comfortable and confident in my own skin too when I’m wearing a bra that actually fits so this is an overall win, win!

Front Closure Lace Racerback Bra

I decided to scoop up the Front Closure Lace Racerback Bra in the Twilight color because I thought the color was close to a neutral but a touch more special. I also knew it would look fantastic with so many colors. The back and the side of the bra are full lace, which lays so smoothly and is über comfortable. The remainder of the bra is a soft micro jersey fabric so it’s a dream to wear especially because it’s smooth enough to disappear under even my thinnest tops (as evident in this post where I’m wearing another ThirdLove bra). This is the first front closure clasp bra I’ve ever owned. Honestly, I have to admit that I’m hooked on the ease of it (pun intended!)!

I’m such a huge proponent of ThirdLove for a handful of reasons.

I really believe in their mission to provide women with bras that they don’t have to compromise on. With ThirdLove, women get it all:

Comfort, style, fit, and convenience.

The company is also driven by inclusivity and carries 78 different sizes. Including half-cup sizes, while most other brands carry 30 or less. Since ThirdLove is so driven to provide ALL women with the perfect fit for different breast shapes, it’s no surprise that they have a super simple and seamless fit process. They have a Fit Finder quiz that takes 60 seconds to complete. They offer free returns and exchanges if you didn’t get the right fit. ThirdLove honestly makes everything so easy!

This year, the arrival of summer is not only bringing warm weather but also my confidence to embrace the weather by walking out the door in flowy, open-back pieces with the right bra underneath. I’m not compromising comfort or style with ThirdLove’s Front Closure Lace Racerback Bra in Twilight. In fact, I think I’m adding an extra touch of style to my outfits by showing off a little lovely lace detail!
