We recently ran a fun test using Cidnee from Uplift Intimate Apparel as our model. We asked our Facebook and Instagram fans what color bra was Cidnee wearing under her white shirt? The guesses included blue, red, coral, green, nude/tan, white, lavender, black, yellow, and pink.
The Answer: RED. Shocking but true.
Cidnee is wearing a red bra under a white shirt! A red bra may seem like a ridiculous choice for white shirts, but this styling trick is worth trying. Skin has red undertones and that’s why red blends well with a white colored shirt. This is important: If you have a fair skin tone, you should look for a true-blue red. Darker skin tones can pick between scarlet and burgundy shades while people with olive complexions can go for cranberry hues. And FYI, fuchsia or hot pink tones don’t work!
So now you know, red/crimson shades can be your everyday staple and not just for Valentine’s Day.
This is a molded balcony bra from designer Marlies Dekkers and is a great t-shirt bra. Whether you choose to show the decorative strap above the cup or not, is up to you. It won’t show through your shirt. This makes for a great wardrobe change from day to evening wear. The Marlies Dekkers brand is a favorite of many Hollywood Celebrities.
