The Right Type Of Bra To Wear With A Trendy Mesh Top

Have you ever been shopping and come across a super cute mesh top, but were too afraid to buy it because you didn't know what to wear underneath? You're not the only one — choosing the right undergarment to pair with a sheer or mesh top is tricky, but not impossible. So, what's the point of wearing something totally see-through? According to Fashion Patels, a mesh top is a perfect base layer for an outfit because it isn't super thick, so you can add additional garments over it without looking too bulky.

Of course, you can always stick on some pasties and call it a day, but that's definitely not something everyone feels comfortable wearing. Luckily, there are several types of bras that offer the right amount of coverage but don't look awkward underneath your top. Choosing the right one all boils down to your personal style and what makes you feel comfortable and confident. 


The bralette is a staple in women's fashion, particularly because of its comfort level and versatility. Many women choose to wear it as an undergarment, specifically with sheer or mesh tops. You can mix and match colors, patterns, and fabrics, or keep it simple and chic with a monochromatic look. One of the best things about the bralette is it looks super sexy worn on its own.

Bandeau bra

Bandeaus are another must-have for anyone who owns a mesh top. They don't offer much support, so they may be better suited for those with a smaller bust, but you can totally wear them no matter your size. Choose a simple bandeau for everyday looks, and something bolder for a night out with the girls. We personally love a glitzy piece that stands out under the mesh.

Bustier bra

Bustiers are without-a-doubt one of the sexiest undergarments a woman can wear. They push the girls up and keep them in place, but they also hug your figure, giving you that hourglass shape. Bustier bras are essentially the same thing, but with a little less fabric. Make the bra the focal point by keeping the rest of the outfit classic. Think black pants suit and your best pair of stilettos.

Sports bra

If you're looking for a bit more coverage, a sports bra is the way to go. Plus, it's super comfortable, so you can wear it all day long (we all know how annoying underwire can be). When it comes to style, there's no right or wrong answer. Maybe you find racerbacks give you more support, or you think spaghetti straps look better with the fit. No matter which you choose, you're going to rock it.

Lace bra

Last, but certainly not least, is the lace bra. This material is flirty and playful, yet totally sexy. You can downplay the sex appeal by choosing a bra that directly matches the mesh, but if you want the bra to really stand out, select one of a different color. Again, it's all about your comfort level.
