Shopping up a storm this festive season? Don’t forget your bras for ethnic wear! These 7 best bras for Indian wear will let you wear any ethnic look you want to flaunt. Try on everything from a low-neck midi dress to a more traditional kurta set with these stylish bras. Read on to know more…

1. T-shirt bras

T-shirt bras are definitely one of the best bras for women no matter what you’re wearing – western or ethnic. The lack of stitching, embroidery or lace on the cups give them a seamless feel, so you don’t have to worry about the pattern of your bra showing through your clothes. They are perfect for body-hugging silhouettes like kurtas or kurtis with fitted bodices.

Get them in different shades, including these vibrant Red and Purple hues. Amante’s Pink padded t-shirt bra with rose motifs is a fashionable choice if you prefer printed designs.

2. Strapless bras

Looking to go seamless under an off-shoulder ethnic top or that one-shoulder ethnic dress? Then strapless bras are your best friend! They are designed with wired, padded cups and a broad underband for extra support when you choose to go strapless.

6. Minimizer bras

Just as the name suggests, minimizer bras work by minimizing your bust. They give women with a bigger bust the appearance of being smaller sized. These bras are designed to maintain the natural shape of your breasts and make your body look just as flattering as it usually would. They come in a variety of designs with underwiring and padding or comfier styles made for everyday wear. Minimizer bras work as well as a bra for kurtis as they do under a saree, dress or lehenga-choli.
