A halter-cut wedding gown is a flattering dress shape that enhances the bust line and elongates the neck. This type of dress fastens behind the neck to support the chest. Halter-cut gowns usually feature low and mostly exposed backs, so finding the right undergarment is a unique challenge for this type of dress. There are several bra options for brides to consider on their big day if they are wearing a halter gown.

Strapless

In many cases, a traditional strapless bra is ideal for a halter wedding down. These bras are a lot like traditional bras. The main exception is that they rely on the support of hook and eye clasps on the back of the bra for support as opposed to shoulder straps. Generally, strapless bras are purchased in a smaller chest size that one would typically wear so they can properly support the bust. These are especially beneficial for women with a smaller cup size; they might not provide optimum support for a fuller bust.

Convertible

A convertible bra is one that features removable straps to they can be custom fit to match your dress. For use on a halter dress, the traditional dual straps of a convertible bra can be removed. Instead, place one strap at one side of the front of the bra and attach the same strap to the opposite side of the front of the bra. This will wrap around the neck to support the chest, while being hidden under the strap of the gown itself.

Bandeau

This strapless bra is made out of a stretchy material that hugs the body as closely as possible. Bandeau bras feature no uncomfortable underwire; instead, it stays with elastic bands within a spandex material. This type of bra is best for halter gowns that have a somewhat high back. The bandeau bra is also ideal for women with a smaller cup size. They offer support to the chest without flattening.

Bustier

The bustier is a flattering and supportive option for a halter wedding down. This strapless option has the added bonus of slimming the waistline by featuring a built-in camisole that fastens as the back with hook and eye clasps or is tied in place like a corset. Some models of bustier feature a very low back that fastens close to the waist, so it is ideal for halter dresses with low backs.
