Your Guide to Bra Color Pairing

The way your bra fits and how you feel in it is essential. But there’s another important part of selecting your bras – color! Today we’re focusing on bra color pairings that will give you the perfect finishing touch to every outfit. Leading Lady’s collection features over 80 colors, patterns, and prints that keep your wardrobe flexible and vibrant. From classic neutrals, to surprising color combos, we’re breaking it down for you here.

It’s no secret that finding your ideal fit and level of support keep your look sleek and beautiful. And comfort can’t be compromised. But when it comes to color pairings, there are some little-known tips that will ensure your bra remains behind-the-scenes instead of center stage.

Here's your guide to bra color pairing:

Nude Bras

A staple in every woman’s bra wardrobe, nude bras are the most versatile. Nude bras work under almost every top and are a long-standing favorite beneath white. That’s because nude bras blend in with your skin color to essentially disappear under your clothes. Even if your nude bra doesn’t match your skin tone perfectly, it still will be discreet.

Before you dismiss nude bras as boring and matronly, check out our selection of "barely there" nude bras. Our smooth molded t-shirt bras in standard and maternity-to-nursing options come in a wide range of styles including full coverage, classic, lace, and racerback.

Black Bras

Black bras are another “must-have” in your intimates’ drawer. Black is ideal for black tops, of course, but also works beneath navy, dark brown, and other dark shades. A black bra ensures no odd pops of color shows between fabric fibers. You’ll definitely want black if your day may involve flash photography, which, let’s face it fashionistas, could be at any time. The light from the camera picks up on any additional color contrast. Also, if your blouse has wide sleeve holes, a black bra will look better in case it peeks out accidentally.

Black numbers like The Ava scalloped lace underwire bra take sexy to the max. Or if you're looking for improved posture, The Grace combines beautiful lace with a broad structure and crisscross back that gently supports your back and shoulders.

White Bras

If you like the simplicity, purity and elegance of a white bra, don’t be discouraged. Although not ideal beneath thin tops, white bras still have a place in your wardrobe. First of all, if you pair a white bra beneath a cami and blouse together, you won’t see the brightness shine through. White bras coupled with a white cami and a white sleeveless shirt or summer dress will ensure complete discretion.

And nothing hides a little breast milk leak or spit-up like a white nursing bra! Our favorites in white are The Veronica silky lace-trimmed nursing bra, The Janet seamless wirefree nursing bra, and The Vivien cotton nursing sports bra.

Colors, Prints & Patterns

Your bra wardrobe should be as fun as the rest of your clothes. If you love wearing blue, then be sure to have a few blue bras too. You can pair like colors together for a super coordinated look. And for sleep and leisure bras, any colors or patterns that make you smile is the right choice for lounging and sleeping in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
