BRABAR

 BRABAR

For the casual gal, this BRABAR HUG Open Back Halter Bra goes on over the head and behind the neck. It does not use a hook and eye on the band, or have adjustable straps. That may mean it's harder to get a perfect fit, but it also means it's super stretchy and comfortable. ​The stretch, seamless cups also look smooth underneath clothes thanks to a wrap front made of ultra-soft stretch microfiber that provides comfort as you move.

​According to the brand, this style "provides perfect support for petites with cup sizes from C-DDD" and "fits A & B cups with full coverage".  It's wire-free and unlined which gives a more natural shape and casual vibe, making it a fun option for teens, or a weekend bra. Try it underneath an open-neck blouse or oversized sweater and let the strap show if you want, or wear it under a halter neck workout top for low impact activities like pilates.

Natori

Natori Ruse

Natori/Bare Necessities 

​One of the best qualities of this Natori Ruse Convertible Bra is the deep plunge and clear center gore. This is a great bra for a halter top or dress with a deep va-va-voom v-neck shape. Plus, you can create multiple looks depending on how you use the straps. In addition to halter, try it as a racerback, or straight back and standard.

Not to mention, it has supportive underwire memory foam cups without too much coverage, and fully adjustable and convertible straps. And the soft, sheer mesh band offers support without too much fuss. Available for cup sizes A to DDD, this is also a lightweight, easy option for many different sizes, from petite to slightly fuller bust

Va Bien

Va Bien

Va Bien/Bare Necessities  

A great bra for underneath a plunge front, halter back bra just arrived thanks to this Va Bien Ultra-Lift Plunge Convertible Bra. The seamless, contour cups are lightly padded and boned for shape and support. That's right! There's an extra "boning" wire inside the cup of this bra.

And the fully adjustable, stretch straps can convert to criss-cross and halter. The special plunge front makes this an attractive option, but it's the extra low back option that makes it a stunner. It comes with a low-back converter that wraps around the body to bring the band down. Try it with your most daring, low back dress and keep everyone's eyes on you whether you're making an entrance or exiting the building.

The Little Bra Company

The Little Bra Company Kira

The Little Bra Company

Bralettes are very popular, but they don't always offer much support or adjustability for a custom fit. So if you love the look of a lace bralette, but want a more supportive, push-up shape then you're in luck. The Kira style from The Little Bra Company is a halter style bra, layered in lace, with a built-in push-up bra for extra support and coverage. The inner construction is its hidden secret for a secure fit and support. And unlike other bralettes which may run small to XL, this petites bra is bra-sized to give you a great fit. In fact, this company specializes in smaller busts, starting at size 28A. Pair this pretty bra with something that will let it show! The lace on the halter straps and cup looks great peeking out of a top.

Simone Perele

Simone Perele Andora

Simone Perele

A slight plunge front, flexible 3D spacer molding cups, and pretty French details are just the start for this Andora 3D Plunge Bra from Simone Perele. The real surprise is the convertible straps, including a special way to wear this bra as a halter style bra. The beautifully decorated straps release the adjustable portion, and then wrap and connect behind the neck. This makes it easy to keep those straps hidden underneath halter tops and special occasion dresses. Of course, it's so lightweight and pretty, we won't blame you if you don't want to keep it hidden away for weddings and date nights, and end up wearing it just about every day. Available in cup sizes B to F (or DDD in this French brand).

Curvy Couture

Curvy Couture halter bra

 Bare Necessities / Curvy Couture

Not all halter bras need to be backless, right? Especially if you want to show off that back! That's the case with this Curvy Couture Crochet Lace Racerback Bra, in fact. The pretty crochet, underwire cups are halter style in the front and gather behind the neck with adjustable straps. But instead of an open back, this stylish bra features a show stopping lace back.

Show it off, make it a part of your outfit, and enjoy it under an open back sweater or blouse. And with band sizes in 34 to 46 and cup sizes C to H, you'll be on trend and supported at the same time.

Strapless and Adhesive bras

Wacoal

Did you know that a strapless bra is often a great solution to wear underneath a halter neck top? Of course, you can wear a supportive strapless bra without the straps and not have to worry about straps poking out or showing. Alternatively, most strapless bras come with removable straps. In that case, set aside one strap all together and lengthen the other. Just like with a regular convertible bra, you can connect the strap in the front on one side, wrap the strap behind and around the neck, and then attach in the front at the top of the cup on the other side. Voila! It's a strapless bra with a halter strap. This is a great option for someone who is looking for a super supportive bra that can be worn many different ways. 

Want to try something else underneath your halter top? Go sticky! Try an adhesive or stick-on bra underneath a very low or no back halter top, or a super daring front halter dress. You won't have to worry about the back band or the straps showing with this bra solution.
