9 Greatest Hits At Sweetest Sin

While we carry a lot of bras, even a lingerie boutique has favorites. Today we’re letting you in on all of our favorite pieces. These are the bras that we buy and live in, as well as the bras we’ve bought multiples of. While we love fashion lingerie, for the most part these bras are classics. All of these bras will go pretty much anywhere with you and under nearly any outfit you can come up with. As a result, these basics are great for traveling or if you just want a capsule lingerie wardrobe rather than an extensive selection of fashion options. If you want to try one new bra that will change your life this summer, make it one of these.

Love Story Bra by Prima Donna Twist: It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Prima Donna and it’s sister line, but this white balcony bra is more than the sum of it’s parts. Subtle strap and cup details give this bra a personality beyond basic white, while the padded balconette style creates a truly amazing shape under clothing. As a bonus, the straps can be worn traditionally or crossed in the back.

Divine Venus Strapless Bra by Prima Donna: If you wear a larger cup size, it can be nearly impossible to find a great strapless bra. Luckily, Prima Donna has put their expert design skills to the task and created an amazing option for all of us. The Divine Venus strapless is pretty much everything you could want in one bra. The design details add a luxurious touch, but what really makes this bra special is the fabric and the fit. Soft fabric ensures that this strapless bra feels great on and won’t move once you put it on. The fit actually produces lots of lift, even in larger cup sizes that traditionally need straps to get a great profile under clothing. If you take good care of it, it’ll last forever.

Happiness Strapless Bra by Prima Donna Twist: This strapless bra boosts the same great fit as the Divine Venus, but adds some eye catching fashion details to go along with it. We love vintage inspired lingerie, but sometimes it can be too bright or impractical to actually wear under clothing. This bra takes a smart vintage pattern and combines it with soft beiges to make a bra that is both wearable and full of personality.

Divine Underwired Bra by Prima Donna: This classic black bra is sophisticated, elegant and will never go out of style. This will give you the lift and look of a t-shirt bra, but stylistically feels like a bra from a classic French brand. The French lace openwork cups are just gorgeous, making this bra feel like a luxurious treat rather than a practical purchase.

Marie Jo Jane Bra in Strapless and Padded Styles: This bra is the perfect beige bra for almost any situation – which is why Marie Jo makes it in so many styles! Our two favorites are the strapless version and the padded version. The strapless provides great lift, while the padded version creates amazing cleavage.

Avero Padded Bra by Marie Jo: This bra comes with all the usual Marie Jo goodness, but features a beautiful set of straps that can be worn traditionally or as a halter. This makes Avero a great bra for a long weekend away, as well as a great summer bra.

Undertone Bra by Marie Jo: There’s been a lot of discussion in the lingerie industry about getting away from the standard “nude” colors lately, so it’s nice to see Marie Jo offering some summer appropriate colors that are not beige. The undertone series comes in several beautiful colors, all of which are wearable under light layers of clothing.

Cabana Cotton Modal Wire-Free Bra by On Gossamer: This is functionally the perfect wireless bra. It has all the comfortable features of a bralette, but is built on foam cups for extra support and shaping. The modal fabric makes it feel like you’re wearing nothing. If all of this wasn’t enough, the straps are convertible as well! If you buy one bralette this summer, go for this one.

Gossamer Mesh Bump It Up Bra by On Gossamer: This provides fantastic comfort and cleavage in one piece. The soft fabric feels great on, but you don’t be fooled: this bra boosts some serious push up power.
