Cosabella’s Guide to the Longline Bra

When it comes to lingerie, there are plenty of options to choose from. You can choose one depending on your fashion needs, figure or personal style. In recent years, the longline bra has been gaining popularity, and perhaps you’ve even heard a friend talk about how amazing they are to wear. 

Possibly you’re asking yourself several questions, such as what is a longline bra? Is there a fit for everyone? What are the benefits of having one? Read on to find out everything about a longline bra. 

What Is a Longline Bra?

A longline bra has extra fabric below the band and cup that extends down the torso and ends around the waistline or belly button. Some longline bralettes have lined cups or an underwire, while others have none. Others have straps, and others don’t. Also, the extent to which the fabric extends down the torso ranges from one type to another.

The longline bra has been in existence since the 1940s. Most people loved it for its ability to smooth their waist and lift the bust. They mainly wore supportive bralettes under gowns and party dresses.

However, in recent years, longline bras are now back in fashion. This can be attributed to the return of retro-trends and vintage trends inspired by various fashion icons. It is the perfect mix of current lingerie trends and vintage style. 

The longline bra is like a crop top, which is now a major fashion trend. It comes in all sizes, and it has embraced large cup lingerie making it a must-have for most women. In addition, they are perfect for the current lingerie-as-outwear trend, meaning you can show off your beautiful bra by wearing an open-top, so it looks stylish.

Tips for Selecting a Longline Bra

Though there are longline bras for each body size and shape, it’s crucial that you select one that’s comfortable and that looks great on you. Here are some tips to help you out, depending on your size and shape. 

If you have a small chest, you should consider buying a longline bra with a plunging neckline. There are different styles with a plunging neckline, from those with different types of lace or season colors.

If you have a larger or plus size bust, you should find a bra that supports your bust weight. Find a longline bra with thicker straps and great hooks to support your breasts and back. Each style is constructed with quality fabric so each bra is made to last!

Generally, you can select any longline bra of your choice. However, if you want to shape your body or waist, consider purchasing one that extends down your waist.
