Look Ma, No Bra!

How to Keep Your Bra From Showing Under a Sleeveless Top

By Nicole Akhtarzad for Who What Wear; Adapted for

Not too long ago, on a semi-warm summer day at the office, I was wearing a sleeveless sweater when my co-worker remarked that he had the same exact one, but avoided wearing it to work because his bra always shows on the sides.

After ushering him into a corner, I preceded to show him how I’d discovered the most amazing detail on my already-favorite bra. What was it? A tiny easy-to-miss hook on the back of the straps that converts it into a racerback style.

Now, let me backtrack for a moment and mention that I’m really not into racerback bras. As a matter of personal taste, I much prefer the look of a classic cut. But when it comes to work and other occasions where you’d like to look professional, having the option of converting your bra makes all the difference—especially when the weather is warm and you’re more likely to opt for something without sleeves.

Hence, why I love mine so much. Whenever I need to, I just hook the back. It not only keeps the straps from showing, but the lace on the sides stops peeping out through the armholes too.

If you prefer to stick with the bras you have, this clip will do the trick as well!

  1. Thank you for this post! Whenever I run with a bra, those pesky straps just keep sliding off to the side, no matter how tight I make them! ~Sara
