It’s a hold up!

Q. I haven’t picked my Christmas party outfit yet, so I was thinking of investing in a good strapless bra so that I’m prepared for anything. Do you have any recommendations?

A. We asked Johanna Bolhoven, owner of See-Saw Lingerie in Hale, for her advice… “Finding a good strapless bra can be tough and they’re often seen as a dreaded purchase, but after 20 years of working in this industry I’ve learned a thing or two about lingerie…. Strapless bras can offer very little support for anyone above a B cup. The variety and options available has got better over the years but to help you [when buying a strapless bra] consider the following:

  • Go down at least one band size; the band will be doing all the work so you need to minimize wiggle room;
  • The larger your chest, the wider you want your band to be;
  • If you’re wearing a strapless top or dress, make sure the garment is fitted through the waist so your hips, not your chest, support the weight of the garment,
  • Make sure it fits properly at the loosest band setting when you buy it. You can then tighten the bra as it wears out.”
