Introduction: What is a Dress with Built-in Bra?
A dress with a built-in bra is a dress or jumpsuit that comes with a bra already sewn into the chest area. The design typically features strapless cups for support, but sometimes built-in bras can be seen in longline designs and halter necklines as well. This article looks at dresses with built-in bras for summer 2015, and why you will want to be wearing them!
The beginning of built-in bras was in the mid-seventies and they have been popular ever since. The reasons for their popularity is varied. They are often preferred by smaller-breasted women, who have found that they give a more secure fit than other bras. The secret lies in the bra’s construction: because it is built into the dress, there is no chance of spillage over the top of otherwise too-low necklines. When shopping for a dress with a built-in bra, the first thing to look at is the design of the chest area. This determines whether you need any support, as well as how you will secure the bra.
