Wedding Lingerie Style Guide

Basques, Bustiers & Strapless Bras.

Not just for the bride...

Whether you call it a basque, bustier, corsette or bodysuit, they all have a common bond - they all reach beyond your belly button. A bustier is a terrific option to create a lovely, smooth line under your clothing, and can also be extremely sexy. A bustier can end at your hips or reach a little lower, and the closure can be hook and eye, or a lace tie-up, often with suspender hooks.

Although a bustier is usually associated with bridal lingerie, we find more women are asking for a bustier as a sexy option for a special occasion or a sexy surprise under clothing. In the past, you would be lucky to find a bustier beyond a D cup, but you will be glad to know that Brava can offer you a very sexy bustier up to a GG cup.

Fitter's Comments

If you are in-between sizes, go for the bigger size so you can hook it up on the tightest fitting. This means the back will close up completely and look much nicer, with no extra hook and eyes showing.
