With wedding season in full swing, the “What do I wear under that?” question is inevitable. We’ve flagged some of the trickiest silhouettes (as seen on the red carpet!) and found supportive solutions that will squash your wardrobe woes
If you always wanted to wear a open-back dress, but have been under the impression it was impossible due to needing more support up top, these bras will change your life. One (Le Mystere) offers a little more coverage and the other (Jezebel) adds a little extra push for cleavage. Both bras offer extra support from an adjustable strap that sits underneath the front band and around the high-waist, forming a deep, low-back closure making them perfect for those strappy summer dresses like the one Brie Larson is wearing.

HALTER AND LOW-BACK STRAPLESS
These styles may be intimidating when it comes to finding the right bra, but we did our research. The strapless Felina bustier offers extra support (and acts like slimming shapewear!) with the hidden underwire and boning. Plus, the low, deep-V back makes it the perfect match for dresses like Diane Kruger and Reese Witherspoon`s.

While they are a hot trend this summer, sometimes cutouts make it actually impossible to wear a proper bra. These gel petals relieve you of the no-bra horror dresses with cutouts may bring, like the ones Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Hudson are confidently sporting.

Although Kristen Bell looks striking in her low-cut pink dress, the daring neckline can be tricky to wear a no-show bra with. This deep plunging bra fastens in the front up to 3 inches lower than most bras. The front closure creates extra support while creating a nearly there silhouette.

Sometimes you can`t even really describe what`s going on — there`s a criss-cross front neckline, one shoulder, one-shoulder vertical, one-shoulder diagonal… the list goes on. They look super cool (take it from Gina Rodriguez, Kim Kardashian-West, Selita Ebanks and Kaia Gerber), but these designs are extremely tricky for undergarments. Luckily, we found two bras that do it all! They can be worn multiple ways and will be the answer to all of those extra complicated dresses.
