Wearing a white shirt under a blazer is the perfect way to spice up your office wardrobe. But if you’re wearing the right bra, you can also make your outfit look more polished than if you were wearing an unsupportive bra or no bra at all. Here are some tips for wearing bras under white tops:
In general, if the bra you’re wearing under a white shirt doesn’t show through even when you lift up your arms with the shirt lifted up to your ribs, go with that.
In general, if the bra you’re wearing under a white shirt doesn’t show through even when you lift up your arms with the shirt lifted up to your ribs, go with that. White can look very pretty with a sheer light pink or nude bra—the color will give just enough contrast without showing through a white shirt as much as black or red would. Strapless bras and straight-across bras minimize the appearance of visible straps.
If you wear a halter top that exposes part of your chest, try a demi-cup bra. It will still be visible but not show through in an obvious way (you could also go for something like this soft bralette). If your tank top is tight enough to show off the shape of your breasts (and most do), consider going braless instead: You won’t have any lines on top from wearing an underwire because none exists! Bralettes are another option; there’s no reason why they shouldn’t work here too!

If you’re going to wear a white shirt, you’ll probably want to wear something underneath it. But what kind of bra should you choose?
Your options are:
- Black bra
- White bra with black trim (this is especially popular in Europe)
- Nude or light pink bra (or any other color that matches your skin tone)
Strapless bras and straight-across bras minimize the appearance of visible straps.
The best option is to wear a strapless bra. It will give you the most lift, and it will hold your breasts in place so that they don’t sag out of the sides of your tank top. Straight-across bras are also good options because they create a smooth line under your shirt, but these aren’t as supportive as strapless bras.
If you don’t like wearing a strapless bra, there are other options. You can use fashion tape to hide visible straps on your tank top or use double sided tape if it’s more comfortable for you (try out different types until you find what works best).
If you prefer to wear a patterned bra under a white tank top, choose one that includes white in its pattern for better camouflage.
If you prefer to wear a patterned bra under a white tank top, choose one that includes white in its pattern for better camouflage. For example, if the rest of your outfit is black and gray, try pairing it with a black-and-white polka dot bra. It will help hide the fact that you’re wearing a colored bra underneath.
However, there are some downsides to this strategy as well. For one thing, many patterns don’t include any white at all—this can make them hard to find! And even if they do come in colors like navy blue or burgundy (which do contain some white), those shades might not match well with the shade of your tank top.
You want an underwire bra for optimal support and coverage.
If you’re looking for maximum support and coverage, an underwire bra is the way to go. Underwire bras are designed to provide more support than a regular bra, thanks in large part to the thick straps that attach around your rib cage. The better-quality underwires on these bras are also wider, which helps them spread out the pressure evenly along your chest wall and prevent sagging or drooping.
A strapless bra is another option for wearing a white tank top without having to worry about showing off those pesky straps. These types of bras have wide bands made from foam or rubber that hold up the fabric of your top without any visible hardware holding it up—they’re basically invisible under clothes!
Opt for seam-free or minimally seamed bras for better concealment under solid white shirts.
There are many reasons to avoid seams, but the most important is that they can show through your white tank. Seams are visible on thin fabrics, like a t-shirt or light cotton tank top, as well as tight-fitting tops that have no stretch. By choosing bras with seamless construction (a seamless design), you’re making sure that any time you wear one of these shirts, no one will be able to tell you’re wearing a bra at all!
Lightweight fabrics like bamboo or rayon can reduce the appearance of lingerie under tight-fitting clothes.
Lightweight fabrics like bamboo and rayon are a good choice for underwear. They’re breathable, which means they’ll keep you from feeling too hot. Plus, they’re also less likely to make your skin itch or get irritated by your other clothes if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
To find out what material is in the bra you have on right now, look at the tag inside the band of your bra and see what it says about its material content. If it says something like “polyester,” then you can assume that it contains plastic fibers—and that wearing this under a white tank top would be pretty noticeable due to said plastics’ affinity for showing up on camera phones everywhere!
To wear a great bra beneath a white shirt, choose the right material and shape
A white shirt is a great summer staple, but not everyone has the right bra to wear under it. To find your perfect bra for this challenge, look for one that has the right material and shape.
- The right material: The right fabric will make sure that your bra doesn’t show through your white tank top. Cotton bras are a good choice because they’re thin enough to let some light through without showing through too much.
- The right shape: Your bra should support your breasts well so there’s no sagging or wrinkling of any kind along the edges of your chest when you’re wearing it under clothing such as this thin silk tank top (or whatever other type of shirt you may have).

The right fit: The best way to make sure that a bra fits properly is by measuring yourself with help from someone who has experience doing so.
You can wear a bra to go with your white tank top, but it’s not necessary. The truth is you probably don’t need to wear a bra at all unless you want to.
