One of the things I realised last year was just how useful a skin tone bra could be, and it was all because I bought myself an ever-so-slightly-sheer white top. All of my bras are glaringly obvious through the fabric – all, that is, except my all-beige Satami bra which may as well be invisible. It’s just perfect!
Well, not quite. It’s the only bra in my entire collection that makes me go “ah, I guess I’ve got to wear this one again” whenever I want to put that top on. I often mix it up with light gold knickers just so it doesn’t feel quite so bland and boring. Don’t get me wrong, the bra is great. It’s comfy and the fit is excellent. It’s just very… beige. And since I firmly believe your lingerie should always make you happy, I’ve decided it’s time I invest in my first ever bought-by-me nude bra.
It needs to be practical of course, i.e. entirely in my skin tone, but I also want it to be stylish. From a fashion standpoint, I’ll probably always rank matches-my-complexion-beige behind literally any other colour. But I did some Googling and do you know what? There are nude bras out there that I like the look of.
So for all my fellow fashionistas who are begrudgingly in the market for a nude bra, I thought I’d round up a whole bunch of the prettiest. A lot of these feature lace or embroidery, but there are also a few chic options for those who need (or just prefer) a smooth, moulded cup. There are bras here for various budgets and various sizes, including plus and full bust. And of course, there are styles that will suit a range of skin tones, even if the models the brands have chosen to use are mostly white.
